Baseball isn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…

The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase... he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distrac

Wow, what an awesome book!!! A heart-poundingly intense sports romance filled with forbidden love, second chance romance, and even a murder mystery! There were twists and turns I never saw coming and the final reveal took me completely by surprise! But at its heart is a gorgeous, swoony, unstoppable love story that concludes in a beautiful epilogue! This author is such a talented storyteller. Her writing is utterly addictive and especially in the final third of the book, I could not put it d

Alessandra Torre excels at writing romantic-suspense. Add in sports romance, second chance romance, loads of angst, and forbidden love and you’ve got a thrilling read you won’t want to put down, aka- Moonshot.

Baseball. Americas greatest pastime. Are you a fan? After reading this book you'll want to be! I live in a city with a baseball team so I've been to my fair share of games and always root for the home team (Go, Reds!) but I wouldn't consider myself a baseball fan. After readi

Love had made everything brighter, my smile bigger, my days longer. Every secret smile from him, every stolen touch, had been a shot of happiness. Every night we’d spent together had been a step deeper into our friendship, a cut deeper into my heart.

"Together, we would only bring chaos."

Moonshot by Alessandra Torre is a stunningly heart wrenching read. A 6 star, jaw dropper that had me on the edge of my seat, invested and affected by the characters. Angsty from start to finish, I was immersed in a world of feels where I loved, hurt, cried, smiled, wanted and yearned deeply.

"Together, we would only bring chaos."

Moonshot is a stand-alone contemporary sports romance expertly blended with love, intrigue, action, and mystery. However, this is not your ordinary sports romance. With murder, baseball, and forbidden love, Moonshot will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire read!

Ty is a daughter of a legendary closer for Yankees. She is also a ball girl and she travels with the team to all of the games.

Chase Stern is a star player with questionable reputation who gets traded in to Yankees. He knows Ty is off-limits but despite it all he is drawn to her.

MOONSHOT is a STANDALONE novel containing everything I LOVE in a story and Alessandra Torre executes it all to complete perfection. The weaving of the tale illustrates the author's incredible vision for individual and compelling storytelling giving my heart the best kind of emotional workout. Baseball, a curse, deep love, loyalty and murder all have a part to play in the canvas of the narrative making

Not rating because I didn't finish Moonshot. I accepted an ARC of Moonshot to read and review, it wasn't forced on me and my bias would have lowered my rating.

I'm sorry to say but this was not a win for me. I could easily say that it's not the book it's me and to some extent that's true. I call myself a reviewer and I take it pretty seriously. I don't just take on ARC's willy nilly, I study the synopsis, check out the author's other works and see if they seem compatible with my style. I

Intense, angsty, suspenseful, and passionate, Moonshot was just the book I needed after a whole month of feeling uninspired by the books that I have been reading. It pulled me right into the story, and I felt completely engrossed by the beautifully written words on every page. There was a suspenseful element to this story, but it wasn't the main focus. For me, it was just a great, second chance romance.

That moment when EVERYONE loves a book, but you!

I've read seven books from this author, all have been 5-star reads for me. So it comes as a shock and with sadness that the eighth book, 'Moonshot', did not strike hot, too.

From the start, I felt a disconnect with the characters and the plot.

I didn't understand the instant love between Chance and Ty. I knew Ty had a crush on him for years, so on her end, it made sense. But for him, his intense bond seemed out of left field.

Chase Stern was the bad boy of baseball. He partied as hard as he played, until his wayward way ultimately brought him to his dream team.

Tyler (Ty) Rollins had baseball in her blood. As the daughter of a Yankees player, she grew up in the dugout and had a family among the team. That was until Chase entered the picture and changed the dynamics irrevocably.

I’m a big AR Torre fan and when I first heard about this book, I couldn’t wait. I didn’t read the blurb, truthfully, it was Alessandra and baseball – duh! I didn’t need to know anymore.

Wow! I needed something to distract me and just entertain me, and this certainly did the job.

Chase and Tyler's love suffered the usual massive misunderstandings, heartbreak and separations, but true love always conquers all. This was a case of his feelings of chivalry ending badly for Chase. He did the right thing, but Tyler was feeling frustrated and confused and, well.... sh*t happened!

Fast forward a few years and Chase and Tyler may have that second chance at love that was snatched away from

Moonshot is a sexy, forbidden friends-to-lovers/second chance sports romance with an edge-of-your-seat suspenseful element. Go ahead and read that again... I'll wait. Yes, it is all of those things, but it's woven together seamlessly and deliciously by Alessandra Torre's stunning writing style. This story is intense and complex and unpredictable and so unbelievably addictive, but it's fluid and superbly executed in all of its layered perfection.

Ty Rollins might be considered the girl next door

Being the daughter of a living baseball legend, seventeen year old Tyler “Ty” Rollins lives and breathes baseball. With her mind permanently in the game, it takes the whirlwind of the teams new signing to claim her attention. The attraction goes beyond the physical, and although Chase Stern comes with his own warning label, she can’t seem to stay away.

As the bad boy of baseball, Chase is completely at odds with the teams clean cut image. It would serve him well to keep his head down aft
