On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, sports agent Bess Beringer is ready to make some changes. Armed with a five-year plan—indexed and color coded—she’ll tackle her personal life with the same zeal that she brings to her successful agency.

A big, tall, ripped hunk of hockey player who’s just been traded to the Brooklyn Bruisers is not a part of that plan. Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz has a lot of baggage. He’s a ride-or-die loner with a bad reputation. He’s on the rebound. He’s also the sexiest thing on two legs, and for some crazy reason it’s Bess that he wants.

She knows better. But then she falls stupid in love with him anyway. And for a while it seems like maybe he’ll do the same.

Until she asks him for the one thing he can never give her…
Oh, how I enjoyed Bess and Tank! They brought me so much joy! Bess Beringer's name may seem familiar to you, and it's because Bess is David Beringer's sister, who stars in Bountiful! I love when authors do crossovers like these. 

Last time Bess lived in NYC, she had a fling with an unforgettable man. Fast-forward to the present and Bess encounters Tank, her former fling, and he's the new trade from Dallas to the Brooklyn team.

I can't stay away from you. I don't even want to try.

As the quote says, they couldn't stay away from each other. The sexual tension and the chemistry was so high with this couple. Tank just couldn't get enough of Bess. And he was so amazing with her! Bess, on the other hand, still can't resist Tank, but she has a rule: no dating athletes.

My no-sex-with-athletes policy is looking a little foolish right about now.

I really enjoyed this new addition to the series. I had some problems with the first 41% of the story, mostly because I wanted to see or feel a connection between the characters, and I couldn't find it. Their relationship during that time was purely sex and no talking about anything else, which frustrated me a bit. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy reading these scenes, but I also want to feel that what they have is genuine. Thankfully, this got fixed and some heavy issues were discussed.

I'd forgotten how this feels, holding someone you love in silence, just because they need it.

Speaking of heavy issues, my heart was torn! Reading about Tank's experience with something he had to deal with broke me. I'm so glad that Bess handled it all like a pro! These two couldn't have been more perfect for each other.

Bess makes me want to get up and hike back to the top of the mountain.

I was so happy to see the OG gang back in this installment! We have Leo and Georgia (Rookie Move) and Patrick O'Doul and Ariana (Hard Hitter)! My heart almost leaped out of my chest to see them again, even more so on this one than the previous book.

"My motto is simple. In any situation I just ask myself, what can I get away with? And then I do that."

Overall, Sure Shot is a quick, entertaining, and steamy read, that also touches on some heavy issues, which will squeeze your heart.
