Where do I start with this book? How about simply—I LOVE It!
If you are looking for a great summer read, I would like to highly recommend this book to you. If you like a great romance story, then this has it for you. If you like a sports story that is easy to read whether or not you have ever held a tennis rack--then I would nominate this title. If you are looking for something to escape with for a few moments, then this might just be your ticket to leave on a trip. Whatever reason you are looking for to pick up a book, than Game. Set. Match has a good chance of fulfilling it.
The characters are fantastic and different from each other. The three main girls, Indy, Penny and Jasmine are at different points in their lives and careers and each handles it differently. Penny is the new darling of tennis. Indy is the one to be looking out for now that she is pursuing her dream and Jasmine is at a point where she has to make a change in order to keep playing. The first book in the series explores as each of these ladies take on tennis—and the guys of OBX.
The guys: Alex aka the comeback tennis star; Jack aka the agent and brother to Penny; Teddy aka the “normal Harrison,” Penny’s twin and complete ladies man are the love interests, liven things up in this book and keep it moving. Alex and Penny have a past and now they are trying to figure out if they can be together. Indy just wants Jack to admit he feels their undeniable chemistry while poor Jasmine wants her best friend to finally move her out of the friend column and into the girlfriend column. I am looking forward to the second book to see how all these relationships progress. No matter who is your favorite player, couple, guy or gal, there will be a character that you will want to support.
The story moves along quickly and does not get held up by too much description of the tennis matches or practices—I personally found it intriguing. I am not an expert in tennis so I cannot speak to the authenticity of the technically aspects of tennis. All I know is that the characters latched into me and stayed with me after I put down the book. My only thing I would change about it? It ended way too soon! I am looking forward to the second book in this series, which I hope will be out by the end of the summer!
