The Ballers may have the upper hand at RHS.

I underestimated them, their cruelty, their ability to look the other way when something hits them over the head, but camp is a whole other story. Their asses are mine.

I've rated this 3 stars when really it should probably be 4. Let me try and justify that;
First off I rated Game On 4 stars when it probably should have been 5. But I'm going to stick with my gut.

Second it went in a direction was wasn't rooting for. That's kinda unfair when the writing was just as brilliant and absorbing. I was really frustrated a lot of the time and it was slower than book 1 too. Not as much happened.

This series is a new experience for me in RH.

Okay, first off E.M. you a phenomenal human being and your books hit my heart hard.

I had such high expectations before reading this book because of my abundant love for Game On. I was not a bit disappointed!!! This book didn’t leave a single box for me unchecked.

EXCEPT maybe a bit more steam with these smoking hot ballers. Because OMG, are you kidding me?? They are all so smoking hot that I’m jealous Tess gets them all to herself. Needless to say, they are all on my list but I am SO hooked on R

Holy Fucking Hell!

Ok, where to start? I guess let's start with this. Y'all know I LOVED Game On. Like it's been my favorite book this year. So I'm not going to lie, as much as I was anticipating this release, I was also scared to death of it. I had such high hopes for this book that I was scared I was going to be let down. Had I built it up so much in my head that E.M. could never live up to it? I already had in my head what I just knew was going to happen. So if I started reading and that's wha

Not even going to lie I'm so mad. I want Lake to pay and I want the next book now! I need the next book now. I did not see that coming and the end wrecked me. I literally have tears running down my face right now.

E.M you had me going there for a while. I really was starting to feel sorry for one individual and then torn as to how I could feel that way. Then he had to go and mess it up. I felt so close to Tessa in this heart wrenching book. She is such a strong FMC and deserves way more th

Game On introduced us to Tessa and the Ballers of Rockport High. Their relationships were contentious at times, and super hot at others. But they let her down and betrayed her trust. Now it is time for the annual summer basketball camp and Tessa has a new Motto "Bigger, Badder, Better." She isn't going to let Lake the Snake get to her and going to concentrate on winning on the court. That is all well and good until certain members of the Ballers decide to try to make right what they screwed up. ...more

3.5 stars. For a tiny minuscule moment there I actually felt sorry for Lake. Hah Fudge him guy needs to pay. There is no helping that twatwaffle.

First book was the bullying, fake love stuff. This one was the make up redemption. Which wasn’t as good as the first. It feels like it went too easy as if the guys had only done pranks. It started off strong but then pretty much went holiday camp mode.

Hayes deserved to be forgiven, his words, actions and general possessive bodyguard thing. Nice to see m

This series is consuming me!! I am absolutely head over heels in love with Tessa and the Ballers. Well all except Lake. He can go and take a flying leap.

Tessa is back on her stomping grounds. She is bigger and badder. She really gives the guys what for, and does not bend an inch. They have a lot to make up for, and yeah she is not just letting them walk over her. So the question here is do the guys get back in her good graces? Did Lake have a good reason for being such a dirtbag? Does she forgiv

All. The. Stars.

EM Moore hit it out of the park again with book 2. No sophomore slump here. It still teeters on that line of high tension, that we experienced in book 1, without tipping it over into unbearable.

I love the characters, even the ones I hate are great characters. Every one of them pulls an emotion out of me. They are alive and breathing on the page.

I highly recommend this series.

Summer Camp Drama

This second book in the series finally gave up some answers. Although Tessa is still weak in my opinion and she gets on my nerves with her justification of all of the bad things the men in this book do! I hope the third book will show her a stronger women! I hope her justification of everything goes away! Sometimes people are bad just to be bad not because of other things going on in their lives!

There will be a GENERAL spoiler that I think most readers would have seen coming, but don't read if you don't want to know.

First of all, let me just say Hayes, Hayes, Hayes....Madam, Hayes. After book one, I wasn't quite sure who was falling into first place for me. Despite the guys' horrible rejection and bad bystander behavior, I was still hoping for Alec & Sloan. Now, don't get me wrong, I think they both find some redemption in Foul Line. But really, this book is Hayes time to shine.

It was such an awesome surprise that the second installment got released earlier than expected, as I was really anticipating this second installment

The story takes places over the summer when the guys (and Tessa) are at her dads basketball camp. We therefore doesn't get to "enjoy" all the bullies at their school - except Lake of course.

I was really glad that Tessa didn't roll over for the 4 boys right away and that she let them suffer some. Still they could have suffered more, because as her bes

5 stars for Foul Line by E.M. Moore. This is book 2 in The Ballers of Rockport High series. If you have not read book 1 you must before you read book 2. This book picks up right before camp is supposed to start. Going to camp we have Tessa, Ryan, Alec, Sloan, Hayes, Lake and River and this spells trouble. Lake starts off with Tessa right off the bat. We also learn that Hayes has been standing outside Tessa’s house everyday when school was going on , so what will happen between them now that they ...more

Love this series so far!

This is book two in The Ballers of Rockport High series and you really should read Game On (Book One) before reading this book.

Tessa is a strong female lead character, although I would love to see her become even stronger in the next book. The Ballers; Ryan, Hayes, Sloan, Alec and Lake have always been a single unit moving through life together since they were little kids. They are all very good basketball players, but they also each have their own secrets and problems.

Game on

This book definitely had my eyes misting at the end. I still don't think the guys have gotten enough shit for everything they put her through but I'm willing to look past that for the HEA. Lake though! He's a TRIP! He definitely crosses the Foul Line in this book. Can't say I'm surprised, actually, I was expecting it. Although it would've been nicer for me personally if Tessa had gotten mad at the ballers at least once this entire book. Looking forward to the next book and hopefully we ge

This is the second book in the Ballers of Rockport High, and it definitely does not disappoint. We get to pick up in the summer at the basketball camp the group has gone too since they were in middle school.

We get to see the relationship between Tessa and her Dad more in depth after seeing lots of her relationship with her mom in the previous book. Tessa's relationship with Ryan, Alec, Sloan, Hayes, and Lake intensifies for both the good and the bad. I love that the boys do have minds of their o

This book was just WOW!
I fell in love with this series from book 1 and was excited to see how Tessa was gonna handle everything in this next installment and I wasn't disappointed.

After the events of the last book, where the Ballers chose Lake over Tessa, this book starts with her preparations for the yearly basketball camp and she is determined to not only show them what she's got but also make them pay.
Bigger Badder Better is Tessa's motto, but when secrets are revealed and games are played,

I really enjoyed the first book in this Series, Game On. I had never read any of E.M. Moore's works before and now wonder what took me so long. After reading the second installment, Foul Line, I am trying to figure out where the heck my day went and when can I get my hands on the next book. I devoured this book in a matter of hours and hated when I got to the Epilogue because I knew it was ending. I love Tessa and the boys: Ryan, Sloane, Alec, and Hayes.

Unbelievable! My very first Bully series & still my all time favorite is from Penelope Douglas then I was introduced to reverse harem with The Academy series by CL Stone. Mix those two taboo genres & you create one heck of a read!

Don't get me wrong, not really into the more mature rated reads with teens having sex but sometimes you just get caught up in it & find a good series with enough angst, drama & emotional pull. Then you are turning the pages & needing more! I wanted

Better than the 1st but still needs work

This book was better than the 1st one, but still needs work. Tessa finally got a bit more sass and backbone and we got more back story about the guys and their hangups. My only complaint is that Tessa is too soft hearted. She forgave them or moved on and progressed in their unconventional relationship too quickly. They should have actually had to work more for her. Hayes was the only one who did anything about Lake. Sloan, Alec, and Ryan had it way to easy

This book was an amazing book because it showed the different sides of our main characters. Our heroin Tessa is a bad ass who shows up all the other players at camp including our Ballers. Lake is our villain and knowing more about his issues opens your eyes to hate him even more. Loved that we touched more on side characters of Chase and his lacrosse buddies. We close some questions about Tessa’s personal life which was nice. But now we wait to see what Lake’s fate will be at RHS. Also we wait t ...more

My Hatred for A Fictional character

I don’t think I have ever, in the history of books read, hated a fictional character the way I hate Lake. He is the bully to end all bullies and he needs to PAY.
This book rocked my world. Much like Book 1 in the series did. I love how strong Tessa is, from her home life being crap, to school, and now camp. She does her thing even when it seems she is utterly alone. These boys and her family have some serious penance they need to pay. I can’t wait for book 3 to

Bigger. Badder. Better!

What a book! This series is fantastic! The raw emotions, scandals, secrets & angst stirred up with family drama and conflicting emotions has you on tender hooks throughout. The way in which the writer describes the scenes as Tessa’s love for basketball shines through along with her waring emotions has you feeling like you are in the front row or playing on the court along side her!

Freaking amazing

This book will carry you on an intense ride throughout. Tessa is such a strong character who fights for what she wants and deserves. Which included the ballers as well as basketball. From the start of camp you see alot of tension between her and the guys. Who all at times show Tessa how they really feel. And let out why they took lake's side at the end of the season in book 1. All this and much more will leave you needing more with a little cliff at the end. 100% you all need to

Can I just say that those steamy scenes were hot af...I'm talking melt your panties and need a fan kinda hot. But I also liked how they were just individual scenes so far, even though this is a RH and the FMC does have multiple guys, I like the build up that's been brewing.

There were a few grammatical errors but nothing that really takes you away from the story.

O. M. G.!

This series. It’s so good! I enjoyed the first book, though I would have liked to have seen a bit more backbone from our FMC, Tessa - it was still a 4-4.5 star read for me. But this installment. Oh my word! It was so freaking good. We get more insight to the guys, more backbone/push back from Tessa, more feels all the way around. I was sucked in and couldn’t put the book down. And that ending! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series! I haughty recommend you give this
