He leads the league in scoring. My heart won’t give him another shot.

I swore I’d never come back to Denver.

I’d never trust the wrong man again.

But here I am, back in the same place as the bad boy athlete who broke my heart.

Clay rules the basketball court, and now he’s gunning for redemption. But I'm not the same girl who fell for the man behind the all-star image and reputation.

He made me want him like I’ve never wanted anyone.

He made me feel like I was the only thing that mattered.

A single look can make me ache.

A whispered promise in his gruff voice makes my chest tight.

Clay’ll do anything to prove we’re worth another shot.

Shot Taker is a full-length grumpy sunshine sports romance and book 2 in the King of the Court series. Clay and Nova’s story begins in Game Changer and concludes in Play Maker.


I received a eBook copy of Shot Taker in return for an honest review from Valentine PR.

Nova has been given the chance to return to Denver work on her relationship with her sister and pursue her own career as an artist. What could possibly going wrong painting a massive mural in the stadium of the man who just told her only weeks before that their relationship meant nothing. When she's back in the line of sight will they both be able to keep it professional or will the intense connection force them to admit feelings? 

I love Nova she's just this sweetheart with her pink hair who fallows her heart and I just adore her. I admit that I've had moments where I want to stab Clay but he keeps redeeming himself. I spent the whole book cheering them on as they figure out how to make it work. I hope there connection and love for each other is strong enough to withstand what's coming. 

I've been dying to get my hands on this one and had hoped to savor it a bit as the final installment is just around the corner. I found myself completely lost in Nova and Clays story that I devoured it in one afternoon. Piper Lawson has done it again creating another beautiful story that captures the heart as well as the imagination. I loved the first book but this one blew it out of the water and she ripped my heart out with a cliffhanger. The author has done an amazing job balancing the story with the spicy scenes it's a perfect mix and it just enhances the story. 

I love all the supporting characters we've gotten to know in the series so far and hope to see maybe their stories. I really felt like I could connect with Nova and Clay they just feel so real not the ego basketball player I expected. I truly enjoyed every moment of reading Shot Taker it's my first basketball romance and now I'm addicted to them. Highly recommend if you are a fan of basketball romance with second chances and a sweet love story.
