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 dow

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 reading

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.

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.

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.

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.



I’m glad I went in blind. I was taken by surprised in the beginning. My silly preconceived notions of things had me doing a double take and then smiling as we’re introduced to the heroine of this tale, Ty Rollins. I won't say anymore than Ty was a great heroine even when she was messing up.

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 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.

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.

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
