Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: I really enjoyed the first book in the Outer Banks Tennis Academy series, Game. Set. Match. (See my review here.) And Losing at Love is a great addition to the series.
I have to say I’m not much of a tennis fan–watching the matches, learning how to play–BUT I love reading about it in this series. I found myself getting caught up in the matches and practices. I felt bad for Penny when she was injured. I rooted for Indy and Jasmine. I love Jack, Alex, and Paolo. I can’t believe Dom. And I can’t stand Caroline. I even learned more about the game in general. I may have to watch a few matches now.
Would I recommend it: Yes, I would. And I can’t wait to read the next book in the Outer Banks Tennis Academy series.
About the book – from Goodreads: Grass courts, tennis whites and the fiercest competition in the world. Wimbledon. After two crazy weeks in Paris, the girls of the Outer Banks Tennis Academy are headed to London with just one thing on their minds: winning.
Indiana Gaffney is fresh off a surprise win at the French Open junior tournament. Sponsors are clamoring for her attention, but what she wants more than anything—aside from a wild card to Wimbledon—is to be with Jack Harrison, but international fame and a secret relationship rarely mix well.
When Penny Harrison dreamed of playing at Wimbledon she never imagined agonizing pain shooting through her ankle with every step. With just a month until the tournament and the whole world expecting her to win, she’s determined to play, with or without the support of her coach or the love of her life, Alex Russell.
For the first time ever, no one expects anything from Jasmine Randazzo. After a crushing first-round defeat in the French Open juniors, the tennis world has given up on her, but worse than that, so have her parents, her best friend Teddy and maybe even her coach. With everyone writing her off, can she find it within herself to go after her dreams?
