I got my paws on a review copy of this Novel by fellow Brit Babes Lily Harlem and Lucy Felthouse, first of all here’s the blurb:
California had seduced me with promises of a new life working at Los Carlos Tennis Academy. What I didn’t expect was the dark, brooding number one seed, Travis Connolly, resisting my help. He wasn’t interested in my psychology skills. Instead his attention was drawn to the edgy, sharper corners of my desires, proving that they existed, setting me challenges and driving me crazy to the point of combustion.
I’m the best tennis player in the world—officially—so why would I need a damn woman full of psychobabble to get me on form? Despite my irritation, however, I can’t resist pushing Marie Sherratt’s buttons even though doing that shows her the darkest shades of my lust, the parts of me I buried deep. So I set her a challenge, one she rises to, one that has me rising too, and before long my game relies on her calling the shots, hitting the target and bending to my will. One thing was certain, being not just master of the court, but also of Marie is seriously good for my soul.
I love how well Lucy and Lily’s writing styles compliment each other. The book gels really well, which is a challenge when you’re writing with another author. Marie and Travis are interesting characters who engage in some seriously sexy scenes with a liberal dose of dominance and submission and the odd bit of spanking.
I would have loved to have read more tennis match scenes,to give this novel a deeper grounding. Sometimes it was hard to tell it was about Tennis at all. However, that’s a relatively small niggle. The characters are hot, the story intriguing and satisfying. If you enjoy a bit of sport sprinkled fiction with hot BDSM scenes then give Grand Slam a try.
