This book is the best Tijan book I've yet to read. Teardrop Shot is brilliant.

Some people just have a lot of baggage. Charlie is one of those people, but she's carrying hers and yours and mine. There's also that thing where she's just lost her job, and her ex-boyfriend dumped her via grandpa. Thank god she has basketball to keep her going. She has a love for it in her heart, and no matter how battered the organ is, basketball has yet to eff her over.

What are the chances that a higher power is looking down on her and is about to gift her with a dream job wrapped up in a hellish wrapper? Really good because she just blindly signed an NDA to work a three week camp working terrible hours, living in a horrible cabin, and she just found out the campers are her favorite basketball team and her favorite basketball player just asked her for a ball.

Reese Forster's life is crap. He needs some time away, and his coach and manager arranged that, but his biggest distraction is the weird and crazy woman who works aat t the gym. She's endless entertainment with her questions and her wackiness. Soon he's built a friendship with her. That turns quickly into an FTHS.

This book is full of emotional depth. The handling of PTSD is done very well. The damage that these characters deal with is serious. It is a struggle for these two to get through the casual to get to something more. Unlike so many of Tijan's Young and New Adult books, Teardrop Shot feels like it fits together, and no part of it is forced or hard to believe. And the characters are so very easy to love.

These unlikely friends to lovers romance are lovely puzzle pieces that fall together perfectly. I recommend this read to anyone who loves love.
