Summary

World number one tennis star Elin Larsson is in hot pursuit of a record number of Grand Slam titles. But between pressing injuries and growing anxiety, it's starting to feel like her heart isn't in it.

Gorgeous rival player Toni Cortes Ruiz bursts onto the scene, chasing her first slam.

As their paths keep crossing in big matches, a growing attraction starts to burn between the competitive women. Elin's used to winning - but not when the woman she's falling for is on the other side of the net. As scandals, the media, and the world starts closing in on them, Elin and Toni need to decide whether they're competitors or on the same side.

Contains mature themes.

Tedious

Tedious, monotonous story. I have lost time I will never get back, My fault for persisting to the end in hope of an improvement. Waited in vain.

Loved the book hates the accents

The book was super sweet. The narration was great however the accents were AWFUL. I loved the way the story flowed. It did get a tad boring in the middle

Before you use a credit....

Cutting right to the chase.....the only reason I took a chance on this book is because it's narrated by Lori Prince, whom I adore. However, I'm not sure why this is under the romance category. This book is 91% tennis, 9% "romance" and I use that term loosely. There is zero description during intimate scenes....no real emotions are talked about, there's no real passion. You're left to your own imagination. I want to be led through it.....that's why we buy these books. It is verrrrryyyyy slow starting out and takes forever before anything happens between the main characters. IF you love tennis you will love this book. The author really is a good writer but understand what you're spending your credit on before you use it.

Tennis!!

Competitive natures, mild rebellion, quick sparks, navigating injuries and missed cues...it's all there and wonderful. I really liked Slammed. It was a fun listen with the unintentional humorous bonus of Lori Prince's Hispanic accent (which sometimes sounded Hispanic, sometimes sounded Russian and sometimes sounded Indian). Soooo worth the listen.

Great Sports Romance

This is a story about athletes. you can feel the pain of training, dread of the media, conflict of relationships, and the struggle of what if its over. The characters are strong women who know themselves. Very refreshing read.

Oh ya!

That was some most excellent lesbian romance! I greatly enjoyed this book. I believe it will be one of my all time favs. Tennis isn’t one of my sports...but this book has left me wanting to follow it more. I really appreciated the diversity of characters. I also appreciate the healthy competition among partners. I highly recommend this book.
