    "You like sports and romance?"

    I really enjoyed this story. I liked the characters, liked the plot, and I liked the setting. I like reading romances with sports. And this author actually bothered to describe the sport. You know what I didn't like? It's the 3rd in a series, but the first 2 weren't available!

    Story
    "Falling in love or lust?"

    The cover convinced me to get this book, yep, watching that HOT male body while listening to a contemporary romance story was exactly what I wanted. And although the story was ok I did not love it. The heroine was annoying and her constant whining got to me. The overall plot of this story was underwhelming and I did not believe the romance. The couple had lots of hot sex but I did not see the love developing... The narrator was ok too. Did not add much emotion to the story, but then again, it was not that emotional anyway... I guess I was expecting a hot sports and romance story like the one from Rachel Gibson but this one was all about sex...

    "GREAT"

    I wasn't sure i was going to like this book but as it got into it. I couldn't stop listening to it. It was great. The only thing that I don't like is that this was BOOK 3 of the series and the other 2 are not in audible format. That's a real bummer.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Well I got the first 2, so"

    I really enjoyed the first two books but this one is just ok for me. I enjoy a story with more drama involved. The sexual content is good but it just lacked the other things I like thrown in. I want angst, suspense, danger..... you get the idea. This is just so mediocre. If you have gotten the other two books in this series and you want to continue with the story I would suggest adding this one to your wish list and catching it on sale.

    Story
    "ENJOYABLE YES BUT SOOOO FRUSTRATING TOO"

    I've listened out of order but I really don't think it matters much but I just couldn't resist the cover (how sad am I?) alright I liked the sound of the story too.

    This is one of those books that I enjoyed yes - but didn't love - due entirely to the female character's personality - "I don't, I won't, I'm not going to, I want more, I'm not looking, I'll choose it myself etc etc etc" you get the picture. IF she had been blessed with a more pleasant character then I could have thoroughly shared in the romance and passion not just the very hot, explicit love scenes. There was a tender romantic love scene at the end but it was a little too late for redemption.

    Worth a credit? Yes, if you can see past her PMS attitude and I will download another as I am enjoying the whole ice hockey scene, which is a brand new theme for me.

    "Good, but same as previous two books in series"
    What made the experience of listening to Taking a Shot the most enjoyable?

    Very well written, but the exact same pattern as the previous two books in the series. From the first few moments, you can already predict the entire book. But it was good!

    "Great addition to the series! :D"

    4.5 stars

    This was a great story. I really liked Jenna and Ty and this was a great addition to the series.

    Jenna is the sister of Gavin and Mick (the heroes from the previous 2 books in the series). The poor woman grew up with sports and is still surrounded by sports in her life. She's tired of constant sports and it doesn't help that she's the one in the family running the family sports bar. She has things she's rather be doing with her life and isn't particularly happy but doesn't feel she can do what she really wants. I liked Jenna's character but I will admit that she lets her fear run (or maybe I should say ruin) her life. She lets her fears interfere with her life so much that when she meets Ty she wont date him just because he's in to sports (which is one of her defense mechanisms). Fortunately Ty isn't easily brushed off.

    Ty is great! He's a good guy and is willing to make an effort if he thinks something is worth the challenge. This ends up being a very good thing when dealing with Jenna. When they first start to date, Ty wasn't looking for anything serious (he never planned to fall in love) but he finds that he can't resist Jenna and wants to find out more about her...what makes her tick. He's very intuitive and notices that Jenna isn't totally happy in her life. Being the good guy he is, Ty tries to find out what Jenna's missing so he can make her life better (sweet guy!). Unfortunately she tends to fight him at every turn.

    Ty and Jenna start out casual and Jenna insists they aren't dating but as things progress she finally admits they are dating. There seems to be a dance between Ty and Jenna, he gets closer and she moves away...then she moves in...It's kind of like 1 step forward then 2 back except they do make some progress (if slow) so it's more like 2 steps forward and 1 back. They do make gains, their relationship moves forward and emotions between them deepen. Ty wants Jenna happy and finds out what she really wants (something she's hidden from everyone, even her family) and tries to encourage her to do it. This tends to be a very delicate dance but I thought that Ty making the effort for Jenna was just so sweet (new book boyfriend right here!).

    Obviously there are some issues but Ty and Jenna do manage to work things out. I really liked how the story ended and was happy with the conclusion. This was a great addition to the story. I'd recommend it. Thumbs up! :D

    "So happy for Jenna!!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ty, by far!! He knew exactly what Jenna wanted and needed, and made sure she got it all. Ty knew what he wanted, but knew he couldn't push too fast so he sat back and let things happen to Jenna so she would figure out what she really wanted on her own.
