    No matter how hard she tries, Elleanor Fisher never thinks she's good enough, from her job to her weight to her love life. After enduring years of abuse at the hands of an ex-boyfriend, Elli has been drifting through life in a daze. Until, that is, she meets Shea Adler on a promotional shoot for the NHL's Nashville Assassins. Before Elli knows what's happening, the gorgeous Shea breaks the ice and shatters her world. A brilliant athlete inside the rink, Shea Adler is tired of the life he's living outside of it: the women, the money, the drinking. But everything changes when he meets Elli.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. The female lead character, Elli, drove me nuts. I can't think of another female character in all of literature who is more of a spineless twit. The other characters in the book were enjoyable but it was almost painful to listen to her inner dialogue. She is plagued by body image issues, has no self-confidence, needs validation from the man in her life (which she repeatedly rejects anyway!!), and continually trusts those she already knows she shouldn't.


    Which character – as performed by Lucy Malone – was your favorite?

    Elli's best friend. She (eventually) lays it on the line and delivers Elli a giant truth bomb.


    Do you think Taking Shots needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    As long as it follows ANY other character in the story and not Elli.
