One of the most swoony heroes out there!!!!
First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…
What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.
No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.
I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.
Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.
Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?
Kristen Callihan has been proven over and over to be a master craftswomen. Her stories are known to be thoughtful, compelling, and feature some of the best characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading about.
With The Hot Shot (Game On #4) she outdid herself.
Finn Mannus was everything a woman could wish for.
Sensitive, protective, passionate, funny – I could go on. From the moment he realized that it was more than just attraction between him and Chess he was utterly devoted to her.
They started out as being friends, roommates, and slowly their friendship turned into a much more deeper connection than either character saw coming. It snuck on to them. Chess and Finn had this deep and vibrant connection that was all-consuming.
They met at a calendar shoot, Finn baring his soul, and Chess was there to capture it all. From all the guys she had shot before, none managed to shake her out of her apathy as Finn did with one look.
A second chance encounter cemented their feelings – they craved more – just being around each other, in each others company was more compelling than all the other relationships before.
This novel was character driven. Specifically Finn Mannus. He was my favorite by far.
A big, touch football player that had this adorably sensitive and goofy side. He was so different around Chess, devoted, doting, caring. He would have done ANYTHING for her. But he was NEVER overpowering or made Chess feel that her feelings, opinions or decisions were unimportant.
I TRULY loved that aspect of him. Finn cared what she thought, how his decisions made her feel, and did everything in his power to make her more comfortable. He supported her through touch times, welcomed her strength and comfort, and stood by her openly and stoutly.
All in all The Hot Shot (Game On #4) by Kristen Callihan was a wonderful addition to the Game On series, and Finn Mannus a TERRIFIC character that I won’t forget so easily. The bar has been set very HIGH and I can’t wait to see what the author is coming up with next. It’s hard to trump Finn – he was almost endearingly perfect in his imperfect but loving demeanor.
