He was attractive in a disheveled, disreputable, range-wolf way. Debonair he was not. But he was sexy. The chip he carried on his shoulder only added to his appeal. So did his arrogance.
It began to rain. Great, splattering drops fell onto the flowers that Stevie had so painstakingly cultivated.
"Oh, God." Groaning...more
What is it about summer and romance books? I don't know and don't care. All i can say it Sandra Brown is a FANTASTIC read, not matter the season.
This story is about a tennis star and an ill-mannered sports writer who has taken it upon himself to knock her down at every chance. Before he succeeds an event happens and well...boy gets girl, girl gets boy etc etc!

“The Thrill of Victory” by Sandra Brown (published in 1989 under pseudonym, Erin St. Claire) is on my keeper shelf and I recently re-read it because I had fallen out of love with contemporary romances & wanted to know if it was as good as I remembered it.

overall good for listening while on the go/commuting/mind on other tasks. i enjoy tennis, followed some of the Olympics, so maybe i was just in the right mood to listen to this, though there isn't much sports itself. . . maybe the appeal to me was i kept picturing Kirsten Dunst and Paul Bettany in that ...more
Progressing slowly and climbing up to a line of sudden events that leaves your mouth hanging open, it is loveable from the beginning to end, not forgetting all of the middle along with that.

I'd recommend it if you have the urge for a quick, fluffy read.
