This is an intense story of forbidden love, loyalty and second chances. The characters are intense and the story is suspenseful and heartbreaking. Alessandre Torre or AK Torre (whichever her books go by) is an auto buy for me so I have read them all. I have enjoyed them all but not always given her 5 Stars. Moonshot however deserves it. I have to be honest I am not a fan of sports and don't know the first thing about Baseball so was a little apprehensive before reading this - it really didn't matter at all....
What makes this story so good, is the intense connection between Chase Stern and Tyler Rollins. Chase Stern, baseball player extraordinaire, was traded to the Yankees due to his inappropriate behaviour off the field. Tyler Rollins, a minor, who's father is the all star closer for the Yankees. Together their love is forbidden and doomed. My favourite line of the book - He scowled. “Life is a series of stupid decisions interrupted by luck.” Their relationship is hidden in the dark, kept safe from prying eyes. Until one tragic night everything they built was lost by mistakes and misunderstandings. In an instant their lives are ripped apart.
Ty moves forward with her life becoming Mrs. Grant, married to Tobey Grant and the Yankees. Her life changes from the ballgirl on the field supporting the team, to the woman in a suit found in the sky box. She's learned to love Tobey. Their passion for the game has brought them together.
Then out of nowhere Murders are committed and connected to the Yankees. They have to win the World Series to stop further deaths. They needed to replace their weak man and so they do with Chase Stern. He has to be the key to winning and stopping a serial killer.
I was tormented by this story, I had to sneak in the next chapter when possible. I needed to know, I needed closure! Ty is loyal to a fault. I loved her, I hated her, I loved her. The story is written in short chapters, which made it pace incredibly well. It kept the story flowing and only increased the intensity of the book. The ending was a complete surprise, bringing everything to light. 5 Yankee Stars....
