Baseball isn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…
The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase… he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil.
I tried to stay away. I couldn’t.
Then, the team started losing.
Women started dying.
And everything in my world broke apart

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words and for once, I really want to illustrate my mood and my feelings while reading Moonshot. I’m sure you’ll get what I mean.
First, we read about young Ty Rollins, seventeen years old and ball girl for the Yankees as her dad is their famous coach. She lives, eats and breaths for the game. The stadium is her turf and greasy dinners at ungodly hours her personal heaven.
When the Yankees purchase THE Chase Stern, her idol, she’s over the moon. Her dad is not so enthusiastic as Chase has a reputation as a Ladies man and he fears his daughter will be jailbait. Let’s say their first encounter was quite…striking.
Ty is moonstruck but she also is used to this men’s world, their promises and their needs so she’ll try to keep her distance with Chase.
I loved reading about Ty’s childhood, her love for baseball, the strong bond with her father and her relationship with the Yankees players as they were all a big family. The attraction between Chase and Ty was palpable and Chase will soon change his way for the refreshing Ty. She’s strong and pure at the same time. I loved how he really worshipped her and never pressured her in any way, respecting her youth.
But it was too easy of course and Mrs Torre had to spice it up, to crank up the angst level and I was all:
Second part of the book and this is a second chance novel but…there’s a twist or a slight problem. Something I usually HATE reading in books, something that makes me stop reading under normal circumstances. But this is Alessandra’s book we’re speaking of so I still plowed through the book.
Let me tell you this was a very, very good read but also one with much angst and highly frustrating at times. Everything was conspiring against their happiness and I wanted to yell many times or take Fate by the balls and force a happy conclusion!
I think I could not explain things better…
