Book Review – The Hot Shot (Game On, #4) by Kristen Callihan

First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…

What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.

Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.

Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

The Hot Shot was another sexy and entertaining standalone sports romance in the amazing and addicting Game On series, and I really enjoyed it! The storyline and characters were amazing, and I loved Kristen Callihan’s writing style.

   Chess and Finn were wonderful and I loved them and their story so much. I loved their personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. I loved reading the book from both Chess and Finn’s POV, and most of their banter and interactions with each other. The secondary characters were wonderful as well, and I really enjoyed their added humor and entertainment to the story. There were a few parts that I didn’t like, and I felt a little something special was missing that would have made it a five star read for me, but other than that I don’t have anything else negative to say. I’m a huge fan of football, and the Game On series has been one of the best sports romance series that I’ve ever read. The Hot Shot hasn’t been my favorite installment in the series so far, but it was still an awesome read, and I was pleased with the conclusion to Chess and Finn’s story.

   The Hot Shot was an incredibly sexy and entertaining standalone sports romance, and I would highly recommend it and the entire Game On series! Kristen Callihan did a fantastic job with this book, and even though there were parts that I didn’t like all that much, I was happy with the outcome to Chess and Finn’s story. The Hot Shot definitely won’t be my last Kristen Callihan book, and I can’t wait to read Jake Ryder’s story!
