Block Shot, the second book in Kennedy Ryan’s Hoops series (which can be read as a standalone!) follows the story of Jared Foster, August West’s step brother and talented sports agent. The story starts out when Jared is in college, pledging to a secret society which means there were a lot of dumb, inappropriate, and questionably “legal” asks to show loyalty to The Pride.
Banner Morales, a beautiful and incredibly intelligent Latina, works at the laundromat off campus to help her earn some money on the side. As she doesn’t look like the majority of her classmates, she knows she has to work hard, both academically and in real life, to get to where she wants to be. Banner is not skinny and she tries her best to hide it behind baggy, frumpy clothes. She and Jared are classmates and have been studying together. However, neither of them know that they have crushes on each other.
