The Long Shot

One look and he knew it was a long shot.

Ryan King is a movie star with a secret. Women fall at his feet for a chance, but that’s never been what he wanted. Broken hearted after helping his closest friend claim the love of his life, Ryan is searching for a distraction. One who can keep his secret.

Shannon O’Neil’s life has changed drastically in the last few years. He served as a Navy SEAL to escape his father’s scrutiny, but an injury forced him to reevaluate his choices. Now he runs a successful security firm. One that recently took a consulting job to train a group of actors for an upcoming movie.

The attraction is immediate but long distance relationships have never worked for either. Still, they want to try. Navigating through their own family drama, and Ryan’s shooting schedule may prove too much of a burden.



I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Ryan King is a famous movie star who leads a double life. He has kept his secret close because not only could it change his career but he could lose his closest friend. Even though he could have any woman he wanted he does not have eyes for them. He is able to keep his secret under wraps by being seen with Raven every now and again. One night at the club Ryan sees someone that sparks his interest but is let down when he sees them with a woman.

Shannon was a Navy Seal who is hired to train Ryan, Raven, Luke and other members of the cast for the movie they are about to film.  After seeing Ryan at a club one night he was interested but there was no way Shannon was good enough for Ryan or that Ryan would even be interested since he was with Raven.

When walls are dropped and secrets are let out Ryan and Shannon sure make a great couple. They have great chemistry and wow is it explosive.  Can they survive hiding their relationship especially a long distant relationship with so many family issues getting in the way? Between Ryan’s brother Manny, Max his old fling, Shannon’s father and his sister man do these two have their work cut out for them.

To see these two very strong willed men knowing what they want and go after it and then also seeing the vulnerable side they showed one another made my heart happy.  I absolutely love Ryan, Shannon, Raven, Luke, and Leona but a few of the other side characters need a swift kick in the back side.  After all was said and done some things worked out for some of them and others well I guess karma comes around.

A few of my favorites:

I get it. There are times I sit there and think about all the shit I could have done differently, but it doesn’t do a damned bit of good. You just got to deal with it, make your choices, stick to them, and move on.

“It’s funny. I thought I was done with secrets, but with you, I don’t care. I get it. Any other case would probably piss me off, but I don’t want to hurt your career. I just want you.”

I want to feel like a part of our world. I’m just not sure I belong.” Ryan pulled him close. “You belong with me, which means with my friends. I don’t care what anyone things.”

I’ve always loved books, especially about monsters and magic, so I started writing. I’m working on a prequel and the next few books in the Others of Edenton series, and I have a head full of stories to share.

I’m a stay at home mother with a wonderful husband who lets me write and write to my hearts content.
