Nestled along the North Carolina coast, the Outer Banks Tennis Academy is the world's most elite training facility. In this pressure-cooker environment, futures are forged in blood and sweat, and dreams are shattered in an instant.

Penny Harrison, a rising female star, is determined to win the French Open and beat her archrival, Zina Lutrova. But when her coach imports British bad boy Alex Russell as her new training partner, will Penny be able to keep her laser-like focus?

Tennis is all Jasmine Randazzo has ever known. The daughter of two Grand Slam champions, she's hell-bent on extending her family’s legacy and writing her own happily-ever-after...until her chosen Prince Charming gives her the just-friends speech right before the biggest junior tournament of the year, the Outer Banks Classic.

With a powerful serve and killer forehand, newcomer Indiana Gaffney is turning heads. She’s thrilled by all of the attention, especially from Jack Harrison, Penny’s agent and hot older brother, except he keeps backing off every time things start heating up.

With so much at stake, dreams—and hearts—are bound to break. Welcome to OBX: Where LOVE is a four-letter word, on and off the court. (from Goodreads)
Let me just say that after reading Game.Set.Match. ... I want to take up tennis. Which is strange for me because I'm normally averse to anything that requires movement.

But aside from that, I loved reading this book! It was so easy to sink into and read all day.

Why?

Characters - Such a fun bunch! Penny, Jasmine, Indy, and their guys compliment and contrast each other in a way that never allows for a dull moment.

Drama - Penny, Jasmine, and Indy all have the same dream - tennis and love. But not everyone gets what they want. Except for readers! There was enough drama to keep me interested, but not too much to make the story outlandish. It was the perfect balance to draw me in without making my head explode. Don't get me wrong, I love drowning in feels... just not ALL THE TIME.

Romance - You have three girls and three different types of romance! What more could a girl want on a rainy day?! Each arc is interesting and yummy in its own way. And I can't wait for them to continue in the next book, Losing At Love.

Game. Set. Match. is the perfect book to snuggle up with at home for a day of reading OR to take on the go. I highly encourage contemporary readers to pick up this book! I, for one, am anxiously awaiting OBX #2, Losing At Love, coming out February 2015.

HAPPY READING!
