    1. 4 StarsThanks to Jessie, I knew love felt like pain. Deep, cutting, dying-inside pain.One More Shot is the first book in the Hometown Players series, and if you enjoy angsty and sexy second chance romance, it's one you don't want to miss. I'll admit, I was sold the second I read that synopsis. Friends to lovers and a second chance romance? Gimme! I will never pass that up. Add it some angst, a manwhore hockey player and the girl whose heart he broke and who in turn broke his? Yep, that's a recip [...]


    2. 4 Second Chance Stars. Jordan and Jessie grew up as best-friends and then on night changed it all. Unfortunately that night took a wrong turn and they ended up being apart. Six years later they meet again in their hometown and this time Jordan is decide to fix the past and have Jessie again, only this time for good, Is this their second chance or some things are meant to stay in the past? I’m a sucker for second chance romances, so the blurb for this book got me from the beginning. I’m also [...]

    4. 4 - "I'm bigger, so I win." Stars!One More Shot is the first book I have read by Victoria Denault, and as a debut novel it was a pretty stellar start to the Hometown Players series.”Put yourself out there… take a risk.”The book focuses pretty much solely on the relationship between Jordan Garrison, NHL Superstar and player for the Seattle Winterhawks, and his childhood crush/friend Jessie Caplan. To say this couple has had their ups and downs would be an understatement, and at the start of [...]


    5. Spoiler Alert Jessie and Jordy have a misunderstanding that tears them apart for yearswhich was ridiculous to me since Jessie didn't bother sticking around to get the full story. I felt like Jessie had trust issues and she couldn't let go for so long. When push comes to shove, if she wanted Jordy and loved him so much, she would have gotten the full story before she became irrational and hid out for so long. The other thing I didn't like was that Jessie's sister kept interfering. I wanted to sma [...]


    6. Thank you to GRAND CENTRAL PUBLISHING and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.2.5 starsI’m not going to lie – it was the abs that first attracted me to this book. I’m a huge fan of cover abs. If you have abs on the cover of your book and it somehow appears on my screen, you can rest assured I’ll be reading the blurb. The second thing was the setting. A large chunk of this book takes place in Maine, and I’m always interested to read a book that t [...]


    7. I have been reading a lot of overly emotional books of late and when I decided to read this book it was because I wanted some mindless fluff in the way of a hot hockey player. But, WOW, what a surprise this book has turned out to be. I was completely hooked from the very first sentence. This book follows the relationship between Jessie and Jordan through a dual POV from Jessie and Jordan, we are treated to a series of flashbacks and it serves well to heighten the angst and chemistry between thes [...]


    8. One More Shot (Hometown Players #1) by Victoria Denault NHL star, Jordan Garrison, has been in love with Jessie Caplan since he was eighteen.  After a misunderstanding they fall apart, now six years later, he has a chance at making things right. I loved this book!  One More Shot is a heartwarming story that had me captivated from the first page. I really liked Jordan’s character.  After his heart broke, he never became serious with anyone because they didn’t measure up to Jessie.  He s [...]


    9. Well this book was a huge disappointment, I thought it was going to get better at 50% but NO it just got worse. What I hated the most when I was reading this was the back and forth between Jessie & Jordan. They didn't really got back together until 86% in the book. It was really annoying how much they keep fighting and with Jordan saying things like " fuck her, fuck love, I'm over her I'm just going to go fuck other chicks so I can get over her" wow REALLY dude!? And then we have Jessie sayi [...]


    10. Decently written in general, but I don't like when a book centres around constant misunderstandings, and this book had them in spades. So much unnecessary drama and angst that I didn't even care if they got back together or not. DNF @ 51%


    11. 10/15 -- This was my first book by Victoria Denault and I enjoyed it very much. Some hockey related details are not very realistic/accurate and it's much exaggerated back and forth until Jordan and Jessie get together (Jordan himself calls it a "ridiculous dance"), but I liked the story and the heroes anyway. I will definitely read book 2 of this series.___Ausführlichere Rezension auf Deutsch: buecher.ueber-alles/?p=20680


    12. Okay, I have to be completely honest here: I read this book when it was just a Jordan Staal fanfiction on Mibba and I have no shame.I had no idea Denault had reformatted and published her fanfiction, so I was SO surprised when I found this book on here and the summary sounded eerily familiar. I kept saying to myself, it can't be the same story, but it is and I truly enjoyed it.Jessie Caplan and Jordan Garrison grew up with each other in Maine with their brothers and sisters. Jessie and Jordan we [...]


    13. I thought this book was a great first book for a new series. So Jessie and Jordan were best friends and Jessie lost her virginity to Jordan. They both loved each other but a lot of mistakes and misunderstandings happened. The next moment he is drafted to the nhl and she moves to Arizona to go to college. They haven't talked in 6 years. Her grandmother passes and he comes to the funeral. Jessie is still mad at him for what happened in the past. She becomes his physical therapist to get him back o [...]


    14. "He came all this way and he can't do anything more than stand there like he's Krazy-Glued to a Ford? Suddenly I hate him more than I ever have before."This book covered so many of my favorite themes I just could not control myself and had to have it. Friends to lovers, love/hate and a hockey book. Umm . yes please. Jordan and Jessie have been the best of friends since she and her sisters moved to town to live with their grandma and they got all wrapped up in the Garrison boys.After a tragic ev [...]


    15. One More Shot had so many things I like bundled into one. Second-chance romance? Yes please! Sexy hockey players? You betcha! Strong heroine? In spades or pucks!Jordan and Jessie have been friends since they were young kids…their families have been intertwined for many years before that. They both have feelings for each other that eventually hit a boiling point right before Jordan gets the chance to go pro. What happens is a whole cluster of unintentional misunderstandings and actions as a res [...]


    16. I fell in love with this story very early on.Jordan and Jessie have a long history as friends growing up together and then as more than friends for one fantastic, amazing night until a terrible misunderstanding, or mistake depending on how you look at it, ruins everything they shared that one special night. Jessie runs away from it all and Jordan runs into the arms of every available and willing woman, never speaking to each other again, until the death of Jessie's aunt brings them both back to [...]


    17. Funny, sweet, and emotional. A phenomenal debut novel! One More Shot is a wonderfully well-rounded second chance romance.I was so pleasantly surprised by this book! One More Shot is Victoria Denault’s debut novel and the first in the Hometown Players series. I’m always a little uncertain when reviewing new authors but for some reason this book called out to me and I took a leap of faith with it.Y’all… this book. I loved it! It’s told in alternating POV between the two main characters, [...]


    18. Rhayne's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsOne More Shot is book one in the Hometown Players series. It is a beautiful romance filled with a little bit of everything to keep the readers engaged, entertained, and hoping for love everlasting.I was blown away by the writing style of Ms. Denault. It looks like this is her debut novel and debut series and you would never know it. I think a second chance romance is one of the harder styles to write and write well. There needs to be a preci [...]


    19. A well designed story about love, heartbreak, and just how painful it can be to make a bad judgement call. This is my first read by Victoria Denault and it was good enough to keep her on my radar. I loved the hero, downright adored him, but the heroine gave me the urge to smack her with her own book more times than I could count. The writing was good, the story line was pretty good, and the happy ending wrapped everything together to deliver a great gift so my rating is at a shaky 4 stars. Jorda [...]


    20. This was a great second chance, friends to lovers story. One More Shot is the first book in the Hometown Players series. It's angsty and sexy And I I absolutely adored it! Jordan and Jessie grew up together, from a young age Jordan looked out for Jessie. Eventually, as teenagers they fell in love, but then decisions are made that jeopardize their relationship.The years go by and eventually as fate would have it, they have been reunited. Jordan sees this as a second chance and he is bound and det [...]


    21. Loved it. Just what I love the most: properly developed storyline; good writing; and characters that you root for.Did I mention the angst? It was so intense that I wanted Jordan to be real so I can kill him with my bare hands. I hate manwhores like Jordan but somehow - now matter how atrocious his sins were (think Ross Geller "we were on a break but multiply that by probably a million), Miss Denault managed to make me forgive him. This is really how you write a second chance romance. You build a [...]


    22. What a great story! I read this in one sitting and just couldn't put it down. From the first page I was hooked and just couldn't get enough. Work fell to the wayside as I immersed myself into this story. I admit, I'm a sucker for the second chance at love trope and I felt like Victoria Denault did this story justice. I cared about these characters and their story and I just couldn't get enough. Looking forward to reading more from Victoria Denault and I can't wait to read the next book in this s [...]


    23. 3.5 StarsI wanted to love this one more. I really, really did. I love sports books, and let's face it - that cover alone could get a person like me to read this book. But, I am a character-driven reader. the plot could be weak, the writing sub-par, but if I love the characters, that stuff doesn't matter much. I need characters I can believe in and rally around in order to enjoy the book. I loved Jordy. He was awesome. But, Jessie, I pretty much hated. Jordy and Jessie were best friends who, one [...]


    24. 2.5 More assumptions and miscommunicationsSource: eARC for Honest Review Courtesy of Forever via NetGalleyWell this is a debut author and it was pretty good but unfortunately for me it was another book filled with loads of assumptions and miscommunications. As you all know of late that this theme is driving me batty because it's been overdone. I let the the first round of assumptions and miscommunications go because they were young and stupid at the time but now 6 years later and they are still [...]


    25. I was given a review copy via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I'm not a fan of this cover and the reason why is going to sound really shallow as it's all because of the hair I really don't like it just doesn't feel like its Jordan because of this. Everything else about the cover I don't mind as it's in keeping with the book.From the very second I started this book I loved it and I didn't stop loving it even if there was a few things that annoyed me at times I was able to forgive every [...]


    26. Oh my God this book. I had to stop at about 60% through the book because my blood pressure couldn't take it anymore. This is the story of one self involved, righteous, non-reflecting, self-victimizing, deaf, stupid poor little girl and a a guy who gets constantly shit on for not doing enough when he is basically doing EVERYTHING! Jessie hates and despises Jordan because of the classic and cliche romance trope of 'when we were young and in love I misconstrued something, blamed you and ran away, n [...]


    27. Gotta love a second chance romance This was a change of pace for me I have been reading emotional books and re-reading old favorites and this bad boy caught my attention I have this thing about hockey and baseball players they are pretty darn sexy pretty much underrated Jordan and Jessie's relationship started when they were 8 and carried on for many years they have loved each other since then and so many road blocks have kept them apart Conversations they should've had would've eliminated so mu [...]


    28. Title: One More ShotAuthor: Victoria DenaultSeries: Hometown Players #1Genre: Contemporary RomancePages: 352Heat Level: 3 out of 4 flamesOverall Star Rating: 4 out of 5 starsReviewed by Naughty Book Snitch KayI'm a sucker for sports romance novels. I don't know whether its my love for sports or all the hot bods that the books make you think about. Maybe both. This was a total surprise for me because it was a new author I tried. That's not my strong suit. I do try new authors but I'm always a lit [...]


    29. A second chance for both of them…Jordan Garrison is living his dream as an NHL hockey player. If he’s a bit of a man whore, well, that comes with the territory, doesn’t it? Jessie Caplan tried not to care what he was up to as their time was long past but that hasn’t stopped her from wondering about him on a daily basis. They were together and then they weren’t, with both having different views on what actually happened. Thrown together again years later, would this be the last time the [...]
