Sunny Shelly’s Review: Hard Pass, by Sara Ney

Release Date: June 16
“Hard Pass.”

That’s what the last girl I slept with said when she got her first sober glimpse of me. She laughed, walked out of my penthouse—and I never saw her again. It doesn’t matter that I’m a rich, professional athlete; what mattered was my face. 



Beauty might only be skin deep for some—but I know better.





“Pay Up.” 


That’s what the last girl I spoke to said over the phone when I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. Desperate to sell a set of rare baseball cards, she’s clever and entertaining. I’m instantly smitten, but nowhere ready to reveal myself. Thank god she has no idea who I am—or what I look like.


I’m a professional athlete–how hard can playing the love game be?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Hard Pass is a funny, lighthearted, easy read from Sara Ney, kicking off her new Trophy Boyfriend series. I thought that Miranda and Noah were adorable! They each believe that there is nothing special about them, but to one another, they are a prized treasure.

Miranda is selling her grandfather’s beloved baseball cards to fund her new design business. Noah, the shortstop for Chicago’s beloved baseball team, wants to buy one but has some serious self-esteem issues. He and Miranda hit it off over text messages, and they both like one another and feel a spark of a connection. But because Noah is so down on himself, he sends his pal Buzz in his place, which leads to an epic case of mistaken identity when Miranda later runs into both guys at a club.

Noah is such a sweetheart. He’s kind and reserved, plays baseball for the love of the game, not the fame. I kept waiting to see *what* was wrong with his face that made him such a “hard pass.” I felt so badly for the guy, but he was such a sweetheart! Miranda thinks she is a plain jane, but she is sassy and spunky and Noah thinks she is beautiful.

This story is a perfect summer binge read, complete with likable characters, funny sidekicks and a lot of steam. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
