Baseball wasn’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 perfect world broke apart.
Wow. Just wow. I can’t even really explain this book because I’m not sure I will ever be done ‘processing’ this book. I will say, this book is best if you go in blind. Just do it. Yes, me, the QUEEN OF SPOILERS, is telling you to go in blind.
So, the book is told in alternating 1st and 3rd person, which was weird for me at first, but it worked. And every time I thought I had figured out what the major conflict of the book would be, I was wrong. So, so, wrong. I am not sure I loved any of the characters. They are all a bit flawed in their own ways; Ty could be frustrating, Tobey is a douche frequently, and Chase is a wimp. Yet, they all had some good qualities as well; Ty could be fierce, Tobey was a good guy at times and I think had genuine affection for Ty, and Chase was pretty swoon-y a few times.
So, how do I describe this book? Love triangle, surprise pregnancy, serial killer, famous athletes, and even a hit of taboo (its probably the tamest taboo but still there). Its all of those things. And you won’t see any of it coming. Once you start it, you won’t be able to stop so get ready for a moonshot!
- POV: 1st (Ty) and 3rd

- HEA: I am not going to tell you. I am not even going to hide it in the spoilers. Seriously, go into this one blind.
Idol by Kristen Callihan, Hide/Seek by Brooke Page, Gingers Heart by Katy Regnery…then you will probably like Moonshot!
Really, Idol by Kristen Callihan is similar? I loved Moonshot and I’ve had Idol on my radar for a while… great review! (What did you think of the ending?!)
Same angst level as Idol. Same ‘will they, won’t they’ and secret relationship trope as Idol. Also, Torre and Callihan are both excellent writers who write really well developed characters!
Okay, now I’m super excited to read this & I’ll definitely go in blind.
