Release Blitz: Second shot with # 76 by Piper Rayne

Second Shot with #76 by Piper Rayne is now live!

My mom always said you don't get a second shot at making a first impression. I've remembered that my entire career. Especially since I'm one of the few black men who play professional hockey.

I'm calculated and respectful in the way I speak to my coaches, the owners, and the media. I've never taken a risk... until her.

I could blame it on the fact that for once I pushed away the pressure of my career for the ocean waves, the sand, and good times with my new teammates. But those are excuses because the minute I saw her at the airport, something lit up inside me and the best week of my life was spent with her in my bed.

After our week in paradise, we said goodbye, exchanged phone numbers and both assumed that unless one of us was flying through the other's city on the opposite side of the country, our vacation fling was over.

Then one night after practice I see her. She's here. In my city. Telling me she moved here for a job. If that's not fate tell me what is.

I've never wanted a second shot more than I do this time, but she's determined to leave what we were on the island we left behind.

Review by Jen Skewes

I was looking forward to this one since first learning of Cory and Ande's summer fling.  Especially with the way the last book ended, basically leaving us hanging when it came to Ande's current relationship!!!  

Cory and Anne met in the Summer at his teammate's wedding.  Ande was at the same location as the wedding with some friends for a little getaway when she met Ande.  There was instant chemistry.  the two of them spent to the week together and when their time was up, they parted ways and went back to their homes which were different state.  Cory never forgot about Ande or the week they spent together.  So when he runs into her he is shocked, not only to see her but to learn that she moved to Florida.  and then the biggest shock of all, she has a boyfriend.  Cory isn't one to want to break up a couple but what he feels for Ande is nothing has felt before.  Plus there's a little something off about their relationship.  Cory wants to get to know Ande and maybe after spending more time together as friends, things could change between them.  There is no doubt that and is attracted to Cory, she likes him and the time she spent with him.  But major trust issues she is not sure dating a professional hockey player who is also known tone a payer off the ice as well, is a good idea.  Can she trust that Cory's feelings former are real and that he is not the player he once was.  

I really loved Cory.  I think he truly had feelings for Ande and wanted to get to know her better and have a real relationship.  He may have had a reputation but with Ande back in his life he wanted to prove that those days were over.  

The twist to this whole story is one that I knew would completely blow up in Ande's face, but that really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.  I was not a big fan of hers for reasons I cannot say.  I did like them together butter me the ending, when the truth is finally revealed is where I had some issues. It all had to do with the forgiveness and who was the one asking for it.  I cannot go into detail without giving things away but I just felt like that part of the story was wrong.  It just didn't sit well with me.  I really enjoyed this book.  But the next book is the one I am really looking forward to.  Kane and Jana are next and I cannot wait.
