I was really excited when I saw this book hit Netgalley. I've been dying for a F/F book, but this one missed the mark for me.

It wasn't a long read but sadly it felt like it was. I know that the romance genre is full of tropes, but each author has to make it their own, and I don't think it happened here. The book didn't stand out.

I wish the author luck in her future books and wouldn't not recommend this book to other readers. We all love different things. 2.5 Stars.

There is a positively delicious abundance of story lines, characters, and upbeat and/or intense elements in this book. What a treat! Plus it all felt so magnificently expansive and yet beautifully intimate. Even the third-tier characters and their intricacies feel so alive and multidimensional. This is simply a tour de force and I feel it should not be missed. Superbly wonderful!

Alex Dalton is an imposingly integrated person and a genuine femme fatale, plus a blistering force on the sports playi

When I read the blurb I thought this was going to be a book focused on basketball but found that the basketball was more of the backdrop to the main plot of the romance and the gambling drama. I enjoyed the two characters they were likeable and provided diversity in their backgrounds which I really enjoyed. Alex comes from a family that accepts her sexuality to Britain that has a religious family who would not be as accepting about her sexuality. At times I did find both characters making odd ...more

3 1/2 Stars. This is the first Jamie Maddox book I have read and I really enjoyed it! It was a good solid romance. I liked how the characters took things slow, dated, and had a realistic relationship. It wasn't just a first time meet-have sex then U-haul which seems to be common in a lot of romances lately. Both characters were likable and you believed they were in love.
There was a secondary character POV which I didn't care for. You can understand why the author did this as that story-line con

I was excited about this book. It sounded like my kind of story for the description.

But then I got into the book. And at first I wasn't sure what was going on. Alex was a player with a mysterious illness who was golfing at the beach. Brit was in a remote part of the world. And then there was this PJ guy, who I had not idea where he fit in.

Within a couple of chapters, things started coming together a little bit. But there was still something missing from the storyline. I struggled to get into it.

this was a bit difficult getting thru because of the topics from the start, thought this was all about basketball but then after reading it then hit me that it was all about someone being a lothario,can't commit to relationships,love, don't know how to deal with ones feelings plus lots of other issues..then there was drugs,gambling and school cheating...another thing it was too much detail and dialogue going on, kinda had me a bit on the bore side, the writing could have been better but i'm not ...more

a bit difficult to get thru this book, wasn't what i expcted,the cover says 1 things and the writing says a different, then there's the whole storyline where it goes one way,it was all over the was too much to get my mind around then i had to deal w/ the fake Russian accent and women jumping from 1 bed to another then another and so on, nah not my cup of tea...
I wanted to like this so much more than I did. I loved the premise of a basketball coach and assistant coach falling in love. There were two major problems for me though: the major conflict could have been resolved with a fully honest conversation (one of my biggest story pet peeves), and the gambling thing. I get that it sets up the conflict, but I really didn't need PJ's perspective.

Really liked this book!

At first, I thought the development of the PJ character was distracting but as the storyline flowed, it all gelled well. Really liked the story. Well done!

I was after sports fiction, and this fit the bill. Would have liked a bit more sports, but still an interesting read with engaging characters.
