As she watches the trainer’s hands move up Jack’s muscular loin, Lizzie tries to keep her composure, but she cannot hide her admiration. When Jack catches an unwitting look of prurient pleasure in Lizzie’s eye, the real game between the plucky, spirited beauty and the reckless, thrill-seeking playboy begins.But Jack’s overtures only anger Lizzie. She can’t forget the unsportsmanlike stunt that lost her the Boca match. She knows he is a notorious playboy. What’s more, Christina Richter is his partner off the court as well as on it. Still, Lizzie cannot deny her attraction. When she finally gives in, the relationship is threatened not only by Christina but by the number one men’s player, Rodolfo Salazar, a volatile sexy Spaniard, who would like nothing better than to cross the net to get to Lizzie before Jack does.Even so, no one stands in the way of Lizzie and Jack’s union more than Lizzie and Jack themselves. Only time will tell if two players on opposite sides of the net can find love.
I received this book to review three days ago, and I haven’t put it down since. Seriously. It’s that good! It is a very interesting read and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.I was a little concerned about the book’s focus on tennis, since I am not really a big sports fan. But, that definitely didn’t stand in the way of me enjoying the book. This book is a great read, especially if you are a romance lover like myself! It keeps you guessing, and you are always wondering what is going to happen next. I really like how fleshed out the characters are, they were easy to imagine and easy to relate to. I felt like I really got to know all of the characters while still keeping on pace with the story. Perfect balance!
GoodreadsIts a book I couldn’t put down until the end.
I could not put this book down because I always kept wanting to know what would happen next. Great story line, the characters were well developed and I loved the ending. Please do not pass this book up. You do not have to be a fan of tennis to enjoy it as much as I did. Trust me you will not want to stop reading it.
From the get go you feel the sexual tension between these two and it’s a fun and entertaining ride to the end. I was very impressed with the fast pace of the story and how well it kept my interest. Even during the tennis games it kept my interest.
I enjoyed this book, because it is a romance that felt more unpredictable and surprising than most of the romances I have read. The romantic tension between Lizzie and Jack is tangible. The ending is not predictable.
Starling is able to develop the characters nicely and you are really able to relate to Lizzie. She is definitely not a Mary Sue! I was actually interested in reading what was going to happen next. That does notusually happen with romances. I can pretty much figure out who is going to end up with who. Starling is able to keep you guessing.
A highly entertaining read for all those who love tennis and smouldering romance between athletes”
How many of you have watched the movie Wimbledon? If you enjoyed it, you will definitely enjoy this book. The characters in this story are all highly entertaining whether the main lead or supporting characters. The pace of the story is fast and fun, you will not get bored even during the game.
