Publisher's Summary

Off the court, tennis star Jason Cartwright's playboy image is taking a public beating. On the court, he's down 40-love. A knee injury is shutting down his game, and the paparazzi are splashing his love life on every magazine. A comeback is in order, but the makeover he needs to save his faltering career is in the hands of the woman he loved and left 15 years ago.

While single-mom Izzy Connors sees people for who they really are through the lens of her camera, even without it, she knows Jason isn't the star he appears to be. Although his charm and good looks haven't dimmed since he broke her heart, all she sees is his wasted talent and playboy lifestyle.

Can Izzy put the past behind her and help Jason get his game, and his image, back on track? Or will the click of her camera shatter his world as well as his heart?

Just okay

What did you like best about Game, Set, Match? What did you like least?

I loved Jason's and Nick's characters. I liked Izzy the least, because she was the main character and was supposed to be the best.

Would you recommend Game, Set, Match to your friends? Why or why not?

Nope. Izzy might be a good mom but she's a moron. She expects perfection and she's not even a perfect person herself. By the end of the book, I just wanted to scream at her. Annoying.

Have you listened to any of Traci Odom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I really liked her performance. I hope to hear other books she's narrated before.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

If izzy wasn't such a nit-picking, "i'm such a victim" annoying shrew.

Any additional comments?

Take Jason's character and reform him into a character in another book without a shrew for a leading lady.

Talented and a good read

What did you love best about Game, Set, Match?

I love Jason and Jessica, hell I love Izzy and Nick, I'll even through Sabrina in there to because she really isn't that bad of a person

Who was your favorite character and why?

What a difficult question. Every character (with the exception of Simon) has great qualities. I can't pick, so I won't. I loved everyone of them (to include Sabrina)

Which scene was your favorite?

OMG! The love scene after Izzy's open gallery. The love between her and Jason left me envious.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! I stayed up until 12am wanting to reach the end. Difficult task as I had two hours left and had to be up for work at 5am (although I pushed my clock until 6am). I loved it, I couldn't get to sleep because I wanted to know so badly what was going to happen next.

Any additional comments?

Ms. Nana Malone, you are talented. Please continue to write for this type of genre in the way that you've relayed Izzy, Nick's, and Jason's story. You are articulate and intelligent. I absolutely love the story and will be looking out for more. Please, please, please do audio as my job makes it difficult to read and work at the same.

A bit boring at times... could be better

Overall this was an entertaining story, a good buy on sale... I wouldn't waste a credit on this. It was a cute love story...but it was extremely boring at time. I literally skipped half of the book and could come back in without guess what happen in the parts I skipped.

Narration was ok...

A sale book, not a buy or credit.

Love the Story

I love this story but the narration of the characters threw me off. Her voice was very irritating. I had to stop and start back so many times. Jason and Izzy are so cute together.

Finally!

As a bw who's been married to a wm for 5 yrs in December, not to mention we've been together for 15 yrs. altogether, I've been waiting for books like this! It was a very good book. I just wish the rest of the world other than commercials and now books would go along with the changing times! Like Hallmark movies who only relegate black women to the best friend role, seriously?! Come on!
But as I said this was a very good book, wasn't to fond of the narrator, but overall a good book.

Crazy Love

Where does Game, Set, Match rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would put this story in my top ten it was very drama and real life I can see this happen to anyone in the sports world.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Game, Set, Match?

When Izzy and Jason was in her studio and they was about to have their first time together.

Have you listened to any of Traci Odom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Nope this was the first.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Izzy told Jason how she felt for him and how he felt for her.

Any additional comments?
