To believe one person can change your destiny sounds absurd. But it happened to me… twice.
Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.
Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today.
Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.
Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.
A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.
The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.
But this time around, I can’t have her.
This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

~ 4 Big Shot Stars ~
Big Shot is the second book in Kim Karr’s Sexy Jerk World. I found this read to be enjoyable and even more emotional than that of Book 1….Sexy Jerk, but it wasn’t my favorite of this authors books.
I kind of knew what Jace’s story was going to entail before going into it, because we get some of his backstory in Sexy Jerk. (NO, Sexy Jerk does not have to be read first) Big Shot is a complete standalone novel, but you will see some of the past characters in this story. So my recommendation would be to read Sexy Jerk first, so you can get a feeling of where this story is going to go. I don’t want to give a lot away, but I will say that Kim Karr definitely took this in a direction I haven’t seen from her before. I will say you do need to go into this story with an open mind.
Big Shot is told from Dual POV as well as from the past and the present. I will say that I wish she wouldn’t have spent as much time as she did in the past with Jace and Hannah, I wish we would’ve gotten to see them more together in the present time. With spending that much time with their past story, I felt that the ending that we got was just a little rushed and kind of hard to believe. Now with saying that, I still really enjoyed this second chance romance. Knowing it was a second chance romance made the ending a little bit more understandable and believable. Their love extends over the course of 10 years. I will say Jace and Hannah don’t have an easy path to their HEA. There are many ups and downs and some heartache in between. But in the end you will be left with a HUGE smile on your face. I did find that Jace was a little harder to love than Nick was in Sexy Jerk, but Jace’s redeeming side came when he interacted with his daughter Scarlett. Kids in any story steal my heart away 🙂
I thought the flow and pace of this story worked well for Jace and Hannah. I wasn’t expecting this story to pack such an emotional punch but it really did. Now that’s not to say there weren’t funny parts and of course melt your panty parts. This was truly a well rounded story.
I would recommend this story to anyone who loves a second chance romance, but just remember to think outside of the box as you read this story.
