A hot-headed college golfer falls for her swing coach in this fun and sexy sports romance.

Lincoln Reeves may be a pro golfer and revered swing coach, but when I meet him, he is just one more person telling me I’m not good enough.

So, I do what any girl in my position would do. I tell him to get lost and take his arrogant, annoying smirk with him. I never expect to see him a

I’m not a huge golf fan, but I’ve read Rebecca Jenshak’s other NA sports romance series, and had high hopes this would be another win for me. I’m happy to say I enjoyed it a lot.

Keira is a Valley U golfer and one of the best on her team. Due to her coach being a jerk, she doesn’t get the playing time she should. When she meets Lincoln, a professional swing coach, she isn’t sure she needs his help, but she’ll do anything to make it to the top so she enlists him.

This was a super cute, light-hearted and sweet read.

Now truth be told, I'm not a golf fan. *whispers* I'd rather watch grass grow. Stop judging me! It's not my sport, mkay? But I AM a huge Rebecca Jenshak fan. So when she puts a grumpy golf pro and a a hot-headed college golfer in a blurb, you bet I'm going to be all over it like white on rice.

Lincoln Reeves and Keira were wonderful together. There's no angst. No crazy drama. Just two people falling for each other. Keira is a talented g

Easy, sweet, and low angst golf romance set in the Valley U world. A heroine who needs to get out of her own head on the golf course, and a hero that needs to get out of his own way on the love course? (Hey, I tried.) Keira is a golf LOVER. She eats sleeps and breaths the sport. Unfortunately she has a coach who isn’t a fan of her, so she doesn’t get the playing time or the support that she needs. Insert Lincoln Reeves. He’s the owner of a sports advice website, a former golf pro, and forever go ...more

I usually like Miss Jenshak books. Especially the Valley U series. Sweet Spot is the spin off from Valley U series. I am shock upon finishing this book, I do not like it at all.

I can not get any connection with the characters, the character and story development and the romance. Sweet Spot is more focusing on the golf instead of the romance. The connection between characters also confusing. There is no angst, plot or twist that grab my attention.

What a disappointment!

I am kind of at a loss as to what I am feeling about this book. Which is really weird. I know my head is still at this very distracted place that is making it very hard for me to get lost in reading any book, but obviously I signed up to review these books because I was very excited to read them. So when they land on my kindle I get that little flutter but then I have to physically force myself to sit down and read. And a book I would normally inhale in a day is taking me two or three days to ge ...more

The one thing I have found with Rebecca Jenshak and her books, is that they are so well thought out, detailed, passionate and absolutely everything a person needs for a sports romance. What I love about Sweet Spot is that it is not just a book about golf, it is a book about self discovery. Not just for Keira but also for Lincoln.That they do have a place in the world. Not just as individuals but also as a couple. Their connection is absolutely sizzling. Even though Lincoln fights it most of the ...more

Another enjoyable return to the Valley U universe with Golf Coach and business entrepreneur Lincoln Reeve’s getting his HEA in the form of College student/come rising golf star Keira Brooks. I was intrigued by Lincoln in The Fake so it was good to get a deeper understanding of him in Sweet Spot

We’ve only had a few small moments where we’ve shared that personal connection, but I want more of it…

I don’t like golf?? Every time I think about it the only images that comes to my head are old white rich men and Sharpay Evans skipping through a golf course with Troy and Chad following behind her in misery. Anyway. I don’t like golf and had no idea what was happening but I loved how determined this heroine was. Go girl, get it.

Over the past year, I have absolutely become such a fan of Rebecca’s work. She writes really low drama, sweet and and romantic story lines. I love the athlete aspect, as it is one of my favorite tropes, and I enjoy that her stories do not tend to follow the arrogant jock route.

Lincoln is the coach, a man dedicated to his business of helping athletes. He is beyond sweet. He is portrayed as grumpy in the synopsis, but I found him to be the far

SWEET SPOT was a delicious slow-burn, full of sass (Keira) and swoon (Lincoln), and I think it was quite possibly my favourite Rebecca Jenshak book to date.
Golf isn’t a sport I’m particularly crazy about (watching paint dry springs to mind), but this story had me really getting into it without being bogged down (read: bored) with all the terminology. Valley U is one of my happy places, and if you’ve read Rebeccas ‘Smart Jocks’ series, then you might just recognise one or two characters. It was

I am a sports romance junkie and I could not wait to get my hands on something new and exciting: golf romance!

It did not disappoint. Rebecca Jenshak has quickly become a sports romance go-to. I loved how this one was a little bit different, but still connected with her previous books. It's got all the elements of a New Adult romance but it's almost like it's a NA/contemporary hybrid. I had so much fun reading!

I love sports, I love to watch it and I love to read about it, but golf doesn't have the same appeal on me, because I see it more as an old, presumptuous, rich men kind of thing. But despite this, I decided to read this story to see if an author I esteem makes me like it.

Rebecca Jenshak succeeded to get me into golf, and her writing made me enjoy this story and these bunch of interesting, hot and funny characters.

Sweet Spot is a sweet, new adult, sports romance. It takes place in the Valley U world and you do see some familiar faces from previous books, but it’s still a complete standalone. Keira is a headstrong golfer on her college team. She and her coach do not get along. When Lincoln, a former pro golfer, comes to her university to teach a golf clinic, he and Keira meet, but don’t necessarily get off on the right foot. After she finds out exactly what he does and realizes he may be able to help her g ...more

I’m a big fan of sports-related romances – but golf isn’t a favorite sport nor have I read even one romance with golf as the featured sport. I’m glad I decided to give this one a go. I had to do some googling on golf terms, but it was a fun reading experience.

Lincoln Reeves is a thirty-year old divorced workaholic and Keira is a college junior golf star. There wasn’t a lot of hullabaloo made of their age difference – barely even mentioned. I’m usually a little cautious with age differences, but

Tee Off With This One!

I love a sports romance, and even though I hardly know a thing about golf, I was swept up in Lincoln and Keira’s story.

Keira is still attending University and is on the golf team. After one bad tournament, and losing her temper, she needs help to get back on the touring team. Her couch isn’t helpful in any way so when she sees an opportunity with an ex pro turned swing coach specialist, she jumps at it.

The thing I enjoyed the most about this book was the slow burn. It wa
jos (sportschicreads)

This was my first golf romance and I don’t think I could’ve picked a better one. It is not a sport I know a ton about so it was really cool to learn more about it though this book.

Keira and Lincoln had such a playful connection with underlying sexual chemistry. Their coach athlete relationship was different from most. I loved seeing Keira come into her own as an athlete.

I really enjoyed reading an age gap romance that wasn’t forbidden. It was a nice twist on coach athlete romances!

4.5 stars really. While I’m not really the biggest fan of older man romances, because I prefer younger men myself, I really did like this story a lot. I classified it as New Adult, because Keira is in college, even if Lincoln is not. The story was sweet, and definitely kept my interest. It took me longer than normal because of the lack of driving places these days, and me really only listening to audiobooks while in the car. I did love both of the narrators though, they did a great job. And I lo ...more

Sports romance is one of my favourite genres to read, and Rebecca Jenshak’s latest book, Sweet Spot, hit the mark with its appeal and unique storyline. Rebecca is a master of penning a sweet romance that packs a punch. I'm a big fan of her Smart Jocks series so I was beyond excited to dive into Sweet Spot as it's set in the same world.

I really enjoyed Keira and Lincoln’s story. I fell in love with both not just as a couple but individually, too. These two were made for each other. Their banter,

I Love this book . Rebecca Jenshak brings here a sports sport with a not-approached sport that was a grateful surprise, a sweet romance with a low level of anguish and that when it ended up left me with a smile on my face.

4.5 this was adorable stars. I really liked this one because of how relatable it was, how real. Kiera is a girl that is completely focused on her golf game and Lincoln is the swing coach that comes in and wants to help her live up to the potential he sees in her. The instant they see each other, they know that something is there, but neither of them have time for anything other than what they are focused on.

Kiera is completely focused on her golf career. She gets no support from her coach and she's not thrilled about it. Then she meets Lincoln, a retired pro who's now a coach. He's a bit of a grump, he's older than she, but he knows what he's doing. Hiring him to coach her is the perfect idea. Linc is adamant that he doesn't want/doesn't do, a relationship, and Kiera is too focused on her golf to want one, too. She whatever it is they develop is not by any means going to

Sweet Spot was very much an easy read, very low on drama with 2 very likeable main characters in Keira and Lincoln. Keira is the sometimes fiery and determined golfer that really wants to improve her game and make it in the sport. Lincoln is who she decides is going to be her coach, and she goes about making that happen.

Obviously this storyline revolves around golf, I have zero interest in golf but I still found this to be an enjoyable read. The move from coach/client into a relationship is pre

Relationship goals, that’s what these two were for me. What happens when the college golfer with a crazy golf passion meets the hottie golf swing amusing meeting, and even more amusing book. These two cracked me up from their first meeting, and the second was even funnier...lmao...I can’t even with the shots over the shoulder.

Love a good sports romance and this was no exception. Since I am not a follower of golf, some of the references were a little foreign to me but that didn’t take away from the story for me. Keira is on the college golf team and Lincoln is a former golfer turned skills coach and she was hoping that he could help her improve her game. Loved their chemistry and attraction. Great story with great characters and I can’t wait to read more.

This is my first book by Rebecca Jenshak and I absolutely loved it. This is a sweet, sports romance with low angst and drama. I loved the story line. Different in that the heroine is the sports athlete instead of the hero this time.

Keira is a college golfer at Valley U. She is determined, focused and driven. She meets Lincoln, a former pro golfer and convinces him to become her new swing coach. They don’t exact hit it off immediately but as time goes on their connection
