Review: HUSTLE ME (Bank Shot Romance #1) by Jennifer Foor
John (Jammer) Thomas is not one of the good guys your parents want you to end up with. He’s been on his own since he was seventeen, traveling from city to city, making enough money to survive by doing the only thing he’s ever been good at.
He’s covered in tattoo’s and has a mouth that would make a grandmother cry.
He doesn’t do relationships.
He doesn’t care about anyone besides himself.
He’s a drifter.
At first look, she’s just a pretty little thing behind the bar, but Charlene (Charlie) is so much more.
After her parents died in a fire she was put into the foster care system. Thanks to her good grades and hard work, she earned herself a scholarship.
Feeling like she was finally going to make something for herself, she finds out she has inherited a bar and a kid brother, from a father she never even knew.
While she tries to manage her new life, people from her father’s past come to collect old debts and threaten everything Charlie has left.
Can she really trust Jammer, or is he just helping her for what it pays out?
I loved, loved, LOVED Jammer and Charlie’s story and couldn’t put it down!! I laughed and cried and cheered and wanted to do some damage a few times too! I love a book that can make me feel all that and leave me wanting to reread it right away so I can spend more time with the characters!
Charlie is a strong young woman with some serious past hurts that make her less than confident in believing someone could love her. Jammer is a tatted up, sexy billiards hustler with a smart mouth and he finds himself entwined in Charlie’s life while also dealing with his own issues. There are also some other key players that I came to love – Ryan, Jammer’s mom, Elle and Zach, Joseph. Stole my heart just a little. They all add so much to the complexity of the story.
I loved the dialogue between Jammer and Charlie! It was witty, sexy, and full of emotion.
When they first meet:
He stuck out his hand. “I’m Jammer.”
“What kind of name is that?” It sounded ridiculous.
“It’s the name you’ll be calling out the next time you’re holding a shower head between your legs and wishing it was my mouth.”
Oh my…I just died laughing! And then the moments in between…Jammer certainly has a way with words. 🙂
“…Settling down was never an option for me. It wasn’t even a blip in my vocabulary. Now being without you for even five minutes makes me all fucked up in the head.” I grabbed her leg and pulled it up on my lap. “Are you a witch or something? Did you put a bitch spell on my and make me go soft?”
And yes, I was here a few times…
Even windshield wipers wouldn’t have been able to control my tears.
And then…well, you’ll have to read the book to find out! Add this one to your TBR list today!
