    Five adorable stars!!! I thought it would have more drama and angst and honestly I wish there was some but I’m fine with this cute sports romance!!! The ending made me cry but honestly can we have more female protagonists who are athletes please? I need to read something cheesy now because this book got me all in my feelings!!!

    I Stan for SeAndre! What can I say about this book other than I loved it? Selena and Dre are just too freaking cute for words. I loved every bit of their journey, that didn’t seem forced, but their natural progression. Can’t wait for the next set of books AW and NF. 😉

    Great feel good story. I love the way Alexandra connects her stories. After reading one you want to go back and reread an earlier one. This collaboration with Nicole Falls is fire. I love characters. Looking for Kage’s story next.

    Selena and Dre were a vibe. I really enjoy sports romances and this author is a beast at them. Selena and Dre worked so well and it was a pleasure reading their story. I can’t wait for her next sports themed romance with these two teams. Great read.

    Repeat Read I’ve read this book 3 times! I adore Dre and Selena as individual characters. Each of them had interesting backstories and super cool personalities. But then together is fire! Their love story is so good. I’m sure I will be reading this book again. Particularly as new characters are introduced in the series (and btw those stories are also fire), I find myself drifting back to Dre and Selena.

    3.5-4.0 First things first we STAN black love ! I enjoyed this book but it also has some negatives. Selena and Dre were great together, their chemistry and easy conversation really made it feel like you knew them. The relationship progressed nicely from a friendship to romantic relationship. I really liked them together. Overall an enjoyable story. The negatives for me was the dialogue/slang and Selena. I am black and I understand the culture and I personally talk with slang but I thought it was t 3.5-4.0 First things first we STAN black love ! I enjoyed this book but it also has some negatives.

I am black and I understand the culture and I personally talk with slang but I thought it was too much in this book and it felt forced a lot of times. Like we get it but there were really no real conversations without slang it really wasn’t annoying as it was excessive. Next we have Selena who was needy, pessimistic, and made too many assumptions. Selena did not really annoy me but it was like girl get out of your head with these made up scenarios. The way she approached situations from a pessimist view also received eye rolls. I wish the story added more of Dre coaching or more interactions with the team. But there were plenty of basketball scenes that were good. Overall I would give it a 3.5-4.0 and would recommend.

    3.5 for personal reasons I loved the WNBA rep in this book, I loved Dre and Selena's relationship, Selena's drive, all of it--I was really vibing for most of the book. Until my absolute least favorite trope in the world (view spoiler)[Unplanned pregnancy (hide spoiler)] came in AT THE 80% MARK! I was so upset. Also the nickname lil baby was a little cringe for me but I guess if they were into it 🤷‍♀️ However, that personal opinion doesn't detract from how much I liked the rest of it, and (view sp 3.5 for personal reasons I loved the WNBA rep in this book, I loved Dre and Selena's relationship, Selena's drive, all of it--I was really vibing for most of the book.

    I had all the feels!! Selena was the starting player for the Nymphs, but when her once favorite idol became part of the coaching staff she was not happy. DeAndre was once a champion basketball player, but life got in the way and caused him to fall. With friends taking a chance on him, DeAndre made an impression on Selena they both wasn't expecting. Both being warned to stay away from each other, they didn't listen and they grew into a beautiful couple. They shared, supported and loved each other I had all the feels!!

    Selena and Dre!! Alexandra Warren is a really great writer. I was so disappointed with book 1 that I almost didn't pick this up but I'm glad I did. I loved Selena's character, she was a bad bitch with determination and competitiveness and refusal to quit. She had to prove to herself and others that the WNBA deserves just as much love as the men's NBA. She's stubborn and heard headed and sassy. Dre's back story is heartbreaking, he really lost everything at the hight of his career, he really learn Selena and Dre!! Alexandra Warren is a really great writer.

He got his second chance to come back and I was invested from the beginning. I loved the characters individually and they were great together too

    Oh my goodness I loved this read. Dre and Selena was spectacular from the beginning and I knew that once they both got to know each other the romance and sparks would be chart topping. Definitely some moments where my heart broke for Dre and his journey but without his past he wouldn’t have been in the presence of his future... I love it and I knew that Alexandra was going to bring heat to the pages she never fails. Excited about finishing out this series

    Enjoyed I love the wit, banter, connection, chemistry, and love between Selena and Dre. It's hard to keep away from what the heart wants. When these two gets to know each other more intimately, they realize that one without the other will be detrimental to their hearts. Enjoyed how they went after their goals even with the unexpected twist. Enjoyed I love the wit, banter, connection, chemistry, and love between Selena and Dre.

    Last Shot This book was all of that! I loved everything about it. First I loved the fact that the author knows the game of basketball. I love basketball and to add a little romance to it made better. From every jump shot, media play, fans, to hit sex, this book rocked. The consistency of the flow, well written characters and thought out plot, it's definitely a good read Last Shot This book was all of that! I loved everything about it.

    Cute Story I enjoyed reading Selena and Dre's story. At first Selena couldn't stand Dre but he was able to break her wall down. Dre redeemed himself from being kicked out of the NBA from his early playing days. All he needed was a chance. I'm glad they both were able to find what the other was looking for in each other!

The story was so sweet seriously from the come back that Dre made to the whole journey with Selena:-from foes to friends to lovers. The teasing, the chemistry , their interactions…it was all amazing to read. And even at the end with her pregnancy , beung able to play hard was such an amazing , inspiring story and basketball always just hits a soft spot for me so that was a plus.

    I actually read this a while back but forgot to review. One Last Shot is the perfect baseball story I have read. It has the perfect amount of steamy scenes, baseball and a cute banter-y couple.

    Excellent story I love the maturity in both of these folks. They remained professional while quietly giving in to their desire for each other. I loved that the people who meant most rooted for them quietly as well. Ready for the next installment.

    Another good collaboration I really enjoyed DeAndre and Selena's story. Dre's falling into trouble in the league was a big disappointment to Selens. He was her hero and she felt let down but being around him and hearing his story had her opening her heart to him. Another good collaboration I really enjoyed DeAndre and Selena's story.

    This was cute. (Also, this book is so black, I love it. So rare to see AAVE used in romances successfully like this.)
