Blog tour HOTSHOT by Ahren Sanders

Title: Hotshot
Author: Ahren Sanders
Release Date: August 29, 2016

I don’t remember a time I didn’t love Crenshaw Bennett.
I tried to deny it, but my feelings grew deeper.
I thought he could never love me the way I love him.

I was wrong—outrageously, deliriously, and beautifully wrong.

One innocent kiss changes my life forever.

Suddenly, Shaw is mine.
Loyal, devoted, and the most loving man on this Earth.
Together, we create an explosion of fiery passion, devotion, and chemistry I never knew was possible.

All of my dreams are within reach, but I should have known it was too good to be true.

The past always catches up to you, and I’m left staring at my worst nightmare.

Faced with the unthinkable, I am forced to choose between the man I love and a past I cannot change.

Shaw’s fighting like hell to prove we can have it all, but can I find the strength to be the woman he needs?

My Review:

I completely fell in love with Lizbeth "Bizzy" Hastings & Crenshaw "Shaw" Bennett  from their first interactions at the beginning of the story. I felt the stirrings of chemistry even then and was immediately entranced. In other words, I was hooked and couldn’t budge from my spot where I was reading. Bizzy first met Shaw where she was getting chemo and she immediately struck up a friendship with his 14 yr old brother Nicky who was getting chemo treatments too. Bizzy had this way about her that drew people in, even in the face of something so terrible.  Bizzy found herself drawn to Shaw because he was older and very handsome. As for Nicky, she found they were in the same school and going thru something really bad , it drew them together and they became instant friends, like BFF and like a sibling.
Fast forward ten years and Bizzy and Shaw are still in each other’s’ life.   pediatric oncology nurse, Shaw is a hotshot sports agent, Nick is one of the top quarterbacks in the league. Then there is Nicky and Shaw’s brother Mathis. He too is very protective of Bizzy. She is Nick's best friend and with the three guys together, they check out each and every date. She's never gotten over her feelings for Shaw but she knows Shaw thinks of her as more of a little sister.  Shaw’s life is great, he loves his job and he makes more than he could in one lifetime, he has a great family. But where women are concerned and his dating, he hasn't always made the right decisions.  He spends a lot of time with Bizzy and his brothers when it hits him that there is this chemistry, this attraction he feels for her. They end up sharing this kiss and Bam- the attraction is thrown wide open for him. Suddenly the game changes and their relationship changes but before they can really explore what that means, Bizzy’s biggest rival and what I would call enemy, comes in and threatens to tear them apart. There are many twists and turns in this friends to lovers romance story and many times I was in tears ,  at how I wanted my couple to get their dream HEA. Hotshot is one of those stories that will stay with you way after the story is over because of how it resonates with you. Bizzy and Shaw are a great couple and even with their up and downs , back and forth- are true blue loves. The ending is sweet and will have you ahhhhing. One of the best Ahren Sanders’ stories that I have read and do highly recommend.

My rating: 4.7 stars *****
