To believe one person can change your destiny sounds absurd. But it happened to me… twice.
Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.
Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today.
Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.
Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.
A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.
The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.
But this time around, I can’t have her.
This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
My Feels (4 Stars)
Big Shot was my first Kim Karr book and was so excited when it landed on my Kindle. I wasn’t sure what to expect and being a sucker for a single dad story I dived right in. It started off quick and hooked my right away … until a few chapters in and we learned about the previous intimate relationship our main character Jace had with his best friend and his wife — along with a previous relationship vital to this current story.
Personally, for the way I read, it turned me off but I still powered through because the writing itself if wonderful. The way Ms. Karr crafts the stories around her characters and makes you feel as if you personally know them is truly a gift. And who doesn’t root for a single dad and relatable heroine who obviously truly belong together and are able to move past their hurtful histories to find love again.
So where there are some aspects of the story I could have done without, Big Shot is still a 4 star read that I would recommend to anyone. Just go in with an open mind I suppose.
