Tijan writes beautiful stories with big feelings and big moments where we witness the character slowly grow through little life moments and it’s so glorious to read. I don’t know how she does it, but her characters crawl into my soul and set up a permanent camp where I remember them long after I’ve finished reading them.
Charlie lost herself in a relationship years ago. She has recently resurfaced and thankfully her old friends won’t let her disappear again, even though every instinct inside her says to run and hide. It is with pure desperation, due to lack of job, lack of funds, and some small voice that says she really needs to get her life back in order, that Charlie says yes to the job that her old friend, Trent, offers her.
Working back at the summer camp wasn’t exactly her idea of a dream job, but little did she know that her dream team, The Seattle Thunder, would be the ones occupying the grounds for the next several weeks. The one problem Charlie has…weird question vomit. She was kind of a hot mess. Her life, her finances, and yeah…her questioning when she was nervous. Aside from that, everything was great. At least that is what she told herself.
“You’re a little odd, aren’t you?” I snorted. “Fantastically so.”
Meeting Reese Forester was a dream come true, becoming his friend, was an added bonus, becoming more than friends….that was complicated. Charlie wasn’t looking for a relationship. She is a shell of her former self and doesn’t need further complications. She warns him time and again, but Reese has a pull she wasn’t expecting, he continues to open up her heart and mend her broken wounds. Between Charlie’s old friends and her new ones, it’s nearly impossible to stay hidden and damaged, but she has to make a choice to make, run away and keep hurting or run towards a new beginning.
Teardrop Shot is quirky, emotional, romantically steamy and full of all the feels. It’s mending old friendships, mending one’s self, and forming new bonds. This entire book is such a fantastic read, it will stay with you long after you finish it.
It’ll go live on June 24th for kindle readers and then exclusively with Amazon (except for paperbacks.) It will also be going into KU on release day.
