Thanks to managing her family's bar and two older brothers, Jenna Riley hates sports -- all sports. She wants to date someone normal, yet she cannot stop thinking about the chemistry she shares with hockey star Ty Anderson. At first, his appearances at the bar are nice; he visits with fans and keeps them happy. When he starts to push Jenna for a date, she denies her attraction and resolves to move on. But Ty isn't going to take Jenna's wishy-washy "No" for her true answer.

While I liked the set-up for Taking a Shot, Jenna was a difficult heroine to cheer for. She has her mind set on one thing -- not dating an athlete or someone knowledgeable about sports -- and she sticks to her guns. After she and Ty have sex in an ill-fated attempt on her part to get him out of her system, Jenna still isn't happy, now because she cannot stop thinking about Ty. It's only when she realizes that she can achieve the dreams she's put on hold for her family's sake and the guy she's crazy about does she become a smart, likeable heroine.
