Yet another Taylor Jenkins Reid book that I absolutely have to give five stars to. I honestly wasn’t sure about how much I would like this, especially considering the only sport I’m interested in typically is hockey, but I loved this book. I was hanging on to every word, and I felt like I was actually watching each tennis match. It was described so perfectly, and so easy to follow even for someone who doesn’t know the sport well. (I’d say the extent of my knowledge previous to this came from playing Wii sports tennis with my sister lollll) 

Carrie’s feelings of desperation, hopelessness, and being so power-hungry were written perfectly. Listening to the audiobook I was 100% in her head. I also adored the relationship between her and her father, and found myself falling in love with the love her that and Bo have for each other. 

I cannot wait to read more of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s books!!
