Publisher's Summary

Money, power, prestige...failure. Bryce Coulter is...The Player.

Don't call it a comeback....Because no one else is. Poised to live up to his legacy, tennis player Bryce Coulter loses it all on one swing. Now, with the pressure on and his future in jeopardy, the last thing he needs is a smart-mouthed training partner with attitude and a killer swing - or maybe she's exactly what he needs.

Rich, spoiled, and moneyed - seen that, been dragged through the dirt behind that. Tami Ivey, gets enough of the bad boy trust fund kids at work. She doesn't need it in her sanctuary too. Playing tennis is the only way to connect to the girl she used to be before tragedy struck. The day Bryce Coulter turns up at her court, she turns on that classic attitude. If there's anything she's learned it's how to make a guy run. Except, he's not running. And maybe she doesn't want him to....

    "Bryce and Tami - Perfect Match"

    Nana Malone is my absolute favorite author and I have been anxiously waiting for this series to be released in audio version -- and this did not disappoint -- Ms. Malone does such an amazing job with contemporary sports romances that I know I'm in for a treat when she writes in that genre. Tami and Bryce feel an instant attraction for each other but they each have their own reasons why a relationship between them would not work out. But Tami makes Bryce feel alive so he continues to pursue her much to his Grandfather's dismay. There's always trouble when family brings drama. Tennis brings Bryce and Tami together but will it be enough to keep them together. I love this first book in the series and can't wait to listen to Dax.

    Perfect narrators -- Traci and Sebastian complement each other's style well. They made this a very enjoyable listen. While I prefer the duet style narration, these two did such a wonderful job, I gave them all the stars.

    Absolutely worth the credit. I'm off to listen to the next book in the series.

    "Love-Love on and off the court"

    This is the first book by Nana Malone that I have listened to, and I was blown away. I absolutely loved her book! She incorporates humor and realistic situations and incredible love scenes into the book. The narrators for this book were top notch, and they both did an impressive job. I found this book to be totally original. This book is my favorite "sports romance" that I have listened to. I will definitely listen to it again and recommend it! This book makes me want to get the tennis racquet out. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook by the author, narrators, and/or publisher. I can't wait to listen to more books by this author and narrators! My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it.

    Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.

    "Cute Story-Great Narration"

    I love me some Nana Malone, Traci Odom and Sebastian York, so I'm so happy because this series is just going to be awesome! As usual, Nana Malone has written an engaging, easy-to-fall-into romance with a bit of heat, a bit of conflict and a lovely HEA. The voices and styles of Traci Odom and Sebastian York complement each other well, and they make a great narration duo. This is a light-hearted, sweet romance without a lot of heavy or angsty drama. Totally credit-worthy! I'm off to see what Dax gets up to...

    "Great story with great narration!"

    This was a fun sports romance from Nana Malone! Bryce and Tami are both tennis player that have obstacles to overcome before moving forward in their careers and relationship! Loved the story and can't wait to read or listen to my next book by this author!

    The narrators were on point for this book. I loved the narrating style of this book and their voices worked well together. Will definitely listen to more books with these two narrators!

    Story
    "On the edge..."

    Bryce Coulter is a tennis pro that has it all, money, fame, and gorgeous looks from head to toe. The only thing he doesn't have is someone who loves him. Will Tami, the poor girl from the wrong side of the tracks, be the one to steal his heart, or his money?

    So the story goes, Tami Ivey is a born tragedy (isn't that how all love stories start out?). She was a rising tennis star when fate stepped in and changed the direction of her life very unexpectedly. So now she is working a low wage job, wearing tattered clothing and living in a rat hole of an apartment in a scary part of town. Along comes Bryce, strolling along through uncharted territory for him, and spots Tami, (love at first sight). Let the courting begin, (no pun intended, lol). Let's start with the story. It felt familiar somehow, and as the story was building up to this big blow out I had the light bulb moment! This is a slightly twisted version of the 1986 movie Pretty In Pink starring Molly Ringwald! Not that this is bad, cause I like that movie, but zero points for originality. The build up in the story was split between Tami facing her fears and opening her heart to true love, and a wolf amongst the sheep that was attempting to drive the couple apart. Well, the villains attempt fell flat for me. There was one attempt and it was pretty lame considering how hateful this person was supposed to be. He really needed to step up his game with the evilness of it all. Despite all this, I enjoyed the story enough to stick with it, but not to the point where when I finished I was blown away or even that I will remember it.

    The character development was hit and miss. With Tami, the author did a wonderful job giving her life, a personality, and a background. She was very believable and I liked her, and even felt sorry for her. The pain from the loss and the trust issues from the betrayal was really felt, and Tami displayed how they affected her spot on. Bryce was the total opposite. He is very one dimensional, and I felt zero connection with him. He was simply the handsome tennis player without a life outside of that. Boring. So the whiplash from boring inner monologue to complex inner monologue was the only thing that kept me awake during Bryce's part. Bryce's father Brent was a very supportive and friendly addition despite how Bryce described him. His grandfather and siblings were a nice addition with minimal background, but enough for their parts in the story.

    Narrator Review

    Traci Odom and Sebastian York supply the narration for this story. Now if you are a follower of the blog, you know how much I love Traci Odom already! She does a fantastic job telling a story. Her tone of voice for the personality type of Tami's character was spot on, well done. This is my first experience with Sebastian York. I thought he was wonderful. His voice has the perfect combination of depth and attitude, giving the impression Bryce is more manly than he deserves. The sound quality was excellent, and oh my panties melt when Sebastian/Bryce was in the throws of passion! Excellent work Sebastian and Traci!

    "Cute Sports Romance"

    This was a very cute sports romance. It was my first book by Nana Malone and her writing style is unique that the drama is believable and not so over the top that the reader wants to put down the book and roll their eyes.

    I love these narrators together - Sebastian is a go to for me but Traci is new to me.
    These two complement each other well in the book and their reading styles worked wells and make for a great audio book. I would buy a book with these two together anytime and give them all 5 stars.

    Story
    "A Nana Malone romance-always a winner."

    I enjoyed the dual narration, male and female voice for male and female characters. Tami is making it, just barely. Her dreams ended with the death of her mother. She'd taken care of her mother and ended training for a possible tennis future. Bryce is recovering from an injury on the court. His future is a question. Will he ever recover enough to compete again? It isn't your normal meeting over coffee for them. Rescuing Bryce from a robbery takes the last connection to her dream away. Her racket made a pretty good weapon.

    Replacing the racket is nothing to him. But she is proud and has good reason not to want anything from a wealthy man. She insists on doing it on her own. Bryce wants to do more than replace her racket. He wants Tami. The battle is a tough one, families, pride, history, all war against love. What will win? Is there a future for them?

    A good sports romance from Nana Malone who never disappoints.

    "Will he have the Comeback, Love or both?"

    Loved Bryce.. there is nothing like a man discovering the heart of why he played. it is not just the sports legacy but the passion for the game. he rediscovers himself in the eyes of an unexpected source, Tami Ivey
