5 Guard Me CROWNS
HOOPS Holiday, previously published as Full Court Press in the Team Player Anthology, by Kennedy Ryan is everything we have come to expect from her – emotional and beautiful writing, and this extended version only gave me more to love.
Decker has the perfect mix of cocky athlete and man with a beautiful soul. The way we meet him in the beginning showcases the arrogant aspect that seems to be a part of any athlete, but as the novel progresses we get to see the man he becomes (and what a man he becomes). Lord, did I love him. This man’s understanding, compassion, and emotion did me in, and I fell for another Kennedy Ryan hero.
Avery, for me, is very reminiscent of her other heroines. She is strong and making her way in a male dominated business. While she is this fierce reporter, Kennedy Ryan finds a way to still make her vulnerable and relatable. She has a past to overcome and issues to work through, but, once again, the author makes us root for her to win with the sympathy she cultivates for Avery.
This novella felt like a complete story, which is often difficult to manage for me with a novella. Kennedy Ryan, though, delivers complex characters, intense chemistry, and a love story that is more than lust, it is about that ever-lasting connection, the one you just can’t walk away from. Gah! Perfection!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
MacKenzie Decker was a question Avery never got to ask, much less answer.
They met when she was a young reporter fueled by ambition, and the ink on Deck’s first NBA contract was barely dry. Years later, they’ve climbed so high and lost so much, but one thing hasn’t changed. The attraction that simmered between them in a locker room before is still there. With success like theirs, everything has been possible . . .
But that was then.
The only question is…what about now?

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…
The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.
Her anger is…arousing.
Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,
gets me…well, you know.
If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.
I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.
I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”
They say even rich men don’t always get what they want,
but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.
Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?
She doesn’t even know how to play.
If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.
One night. One epic fail. One dollar…and I’m out.
I’ve moved on.
I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.
Anything they can do, I have done better.
They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.
And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?
Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.
I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.
Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.
But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.
