Publisher's Summary

I asked for his criteria for bed buddies - that's the PG version.
He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies.
And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.   

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.
Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.
He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.   

Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.
And dumped.
And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?   

Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends.
We shouldn’t have become roommates.
And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together...(Except we did.)   

I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA. ​
This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all.   

Teardrop Shot is a 100K standalone sports romance.

Great story, loved it.

I really loved this story. It brings attention to different aspects of grief, and coping with it. While it has a undertone of emotionality to it, it still is a light and upbeat story for the most part. It was balanced really well between heavy and light heartedness and it was performed excellently. My only two critics are 1) Dan Bittner literally only performed one chapter, and it was a short one. So perhaps it should say performed by Savannah with a guest appearance by Dan. Which is really totally on Audible I think.
And 2) I wished this story had more than one chapter from the male POV of the H. I wanted to see how Forrester actually thought about things, about Charlie with her quirk, his own issues etc.
that being said the story still does amazingly well at bringing both characters to life and letting you see their side of things. It’s excellently performed and it’s definitely a great story. Absolutely recommend.

A tear in my eyes

I absolutely love this story Reese and Charlie is everything. I had no problems listening to any of this story. I think Savannah Peachwood and Dan Bittner did an excellent job with the narration. Savannah brought them questions to life.

Great story, kept you guessing

Not your typical boy meets girl, girl meets celebrity blah blah. Actually had some surprises and a nice spin. Really enjoyed this book.

Pretty bad

This story was all over the place. It had potential to be good but it went very very wrong somewhere. I had to stop half way in and couldn’t finish.

Loved it!

Teardrop Shot is now my favorite Tijan book yet! I laughed, I cried and I didn't want it to end. The narrators did a phenomenal job, as well!

Amazing



I actually have no words after reading this book. It was amazing. My emotions were everywhere during this whole book. Charlie is trying to rediscover herself and developed some corky behaviors as a coping mechanism. Reese a cocky basketball star with his own bagged was just what Charlie needed. This book about love, hurt, betrayal and laughter was brilliant written. It takes your emotions on a ride that you will be glad you went on.

Tear drop is a tear jerker

Touching book about grief, accepting support and learning how to be happy again. I loved Reese from the beginning and the whole network of friends. Well worth the time and the tears.

could have been shorter

I really want to love this book... it touches on a lot of great subjects however it was very long-winded. the first four hours could have been summed up in less than an hour and the rest of the book could have been done in 6 hours... I will even admit it has started a weird question text conversation between my husband and I again... and for that I will give it 3 stars!

not for me

I like seeing things from both perspectives but all 5hat was given here was the girls a few hours in and I'm bored with the slightly desperate woman with psycho stalker vibes

Wow! 5 Stars is NOT Enough. I Loved It.

Flipping heck! I am an emotional wreck! What a truly wonderful story, it was funny, it was romantic, it was so so emotional (for me especially, dementia is a disease I’ve had first hand dealings with). Okay, no more emotional talk, let’s talk basketball, I know nothing about it, but I’m going to make it my mission to watch a game and find out more, especially if there are some real life players like Reese or Juan, because let me tell you, those guys leave all the rest in the dust, they’re perfect book boyfriends. The story follows the quirky and very heartbroken Charlie, an extreme basketball fan. So when she finds herself working the courts at a training camp hosting her dream team with her dream player, NBA superstar, Reese Forster, things start looking up for her (if only she can get her head screwed on straight and stop all the verbal diarrhoea spewing out of her mouth). Reese also has his own issues, he’s dealing with a not so easygoing unsupportive family. Together they eventually learn to let each other in, and things are looking peachy, until that little bit of doubt creeps in and tries to ruin everything. Have they got what it takes to take that extra step, do they even want to try? Strangely wonderful characters, a wonderful story, with wonderful writing, as usual. I was lost in the story, addicted from the first to the very last page. If I could give a book more than five stars, this would be it. Having read both the ebook and having listened to the audio. I’ve got to say, I was way more emotional listening to the audio. Such a wonderful story. Savannah Peachwood did a fantastic job at narrating. Dan Bittner too was brilliant, sadly he was only in for a few minutes, but for those few minutes I was in heaven. Highly recommend.
