Regan Hunter came to tennis late in life, but she’s worked hard to become one of the world’s top players. Beating the odds has made her unstoppable on the court and neurotically controlling off of it. So when her manager hires a new coach, a has-been who left the sport after a scandal, Regan wants him gone, fast.
Ben Percy, a former Grand Slam winner, is well aware of Regan’s reputation for driving coaches away—usually screaming. But working with the notoriously mercurial Regan could be just the break he needs to take his career to the next level, and he’s never been one to scare easily. He must stick to only one rule: hands off Regan.
Keeping his distance from Regan is more difficult than Ben ever imagined. Behind her tough, sexy exterior is a woman he wants to get to know better. And Regan feels a connection with her patient, easy-on-the-eyes coach that’s hard to ignore. But with the biggest championship of all on the line, romance may be completely out of bounds…
Just in time for the French Open Tennis Tournament, I finally had a chance to read a romance about a sports I’m so familiar with, and enjoy watching.
I was lucky so far, the authors whose sports romances I’ve read were really good with describing the on field activities, so I never felt left out, but there’s a special kind of pleasure to take out of a book where you know what they’re talking about when they’re on the field. It was one of the reasons why I wanted to read this book.
With a pretty cover and a duo of promising characters-one of whom is now retired, once champion tennis player turned coach, and one is a late bloomer, promising talent- this book seemed to offer a lot from the start. I was determined not to be swayed by my love for tennis though, and I can honestly say that I loved what this book had to offer.
