A Shot at Forgiveness by Cardeno C. *Review
Posted by brriske
Sometimes to find love, you must first learn forgiveness.
A dozen years, two thousand miles, and a law degree after high school, Rafi Steiner continues to harbor resentment toward Isaac Jones, his childhood bully turned NBA star. When Isaac appears at Rafi’s favorite restaurant acting like a long-lost friend, Rafi bluntly dismisses him.
But Isaac is tenacious and he has his heart set on the grown-up version of the boy he always wanted and never forgot. The way Isaac sees it, he and Rafi are perfect for each other, if only he could sink the most important shot of his life: his one shot at forgiveness.
I LOVE Cardeno C, absolutely adore the work that is produced, I just wish they were longer! 70 pages is not enough for me!
After 12 years, Rafi comes face to face with his high school bully, Isaac. Rafi wants nothing to do with Isaac, but his is stubborn in his pursuit of Rafi. All is not as it seemed to be in high school though, and a heart to heart makes Rafi see all the things he never saw before, not that Isaac was a bully, but Isaac did many kinder things to Rafi than he remembered.
This little book is an hour reading time (for me anyway) of deliciousness, sweetness, sexiness and all sorts of other things, all rolled into a jam packed 70 pages.
I just want more. I ALWAYS want more, I know, but we only get Rafi, no Isaac! Nothing at all, so that, and the fact it is so short, is why it gets 4.5 stars and not 5. I’m sorry, but I gotta stick to my guns on this one. Like I said, I always want more, and more is POV from both (all, even) main characters.
I loved the about face that Rafi does, after Isaac talks to him, really talks to him, about what he remembers from high school, and I loved that Isaac sort of moves himself in while he is in town.
so, 4.5 stars
