About the Book:
A chance encounter in a Rome hotel, two tremendously damaging photographs, and Hilton Joliet’s life is instantly altered. Previously working a dead-end job as an assistant in a portrait studio, she is now a freelance photographer for Game Set Match magazine, “the Us Weekly of tennis,” as she calls it.

Thrown rapidly into a jet-setting life of world-class tennis, the best seats at the best matches, and trailing the hottest young tennis stars and their model and actress girlfriends, Hilton, a former tennis player herself, can’t imagine a more fun job or a better way to jump-start her career while her boyfriend Luke finishes law school.

As Hilton spends more and more time away from home, grows closer and closer to Tanner Bruin—the world-ranked No. 3 player on whom she’s always had a huge crush—and becomes more and more hated by Aubrey Gage—the actress girlfriend of world-ranked No. 6 player Haidin Bayliss—Luke keeps a secret from her that could drastically change their six-year relationship.

It is through Hilton’s discovery of that secret, her love for the tennis tour, and her front-row glimpse into its most high-profile relationships that she starts to see how love doesn’t always mean near as much as she thought it did.

About the Author:

Daisy Jordan is an obsessive tennis fan and wrote this book so she could live out her dream-job fantasy through Hilton. Before deciding to write a book about the tennis tour, she wrote six other books, including Everything Happens for a Reason…, the Spin the Bottle series, and All That Sparkles Isn’t Real Sapphire. Even before that, she grew up in Indiana watching tennis all summer every summer on TV, and even attended a few pro tournaments. She now lives in Denver and religiously fills out brackets for every Grand Slam with her brother Josh.

My Review:
One word: Cool! I loved reading this book by Daisy Jordan. Once again, this is another new to me author and one that I am glad that I had the pleasure of reviewing for! Her talent is extremely skilled and she really knows how to hook her reader. While this isn’t  a Christian novel, it is not overly filled with sex or overpowered with  language (there was some language yes, but not every other word like some of these novels out there today). That was a bonus with me on Daisy’s book.

I loved reading Hilton’s story. She was such a sweet character! Even when all went wrong for her. She was determined to over come it all and follow her hopes and dreams. I loved her character so much and Daisy did a wonderful job chiseling her with her flaws and her issues. Truly a wonderful way to hook her readers!

Daisy wrote this story with lots of laughs, lots of drama and lots of secrets. She pulled them all together to create a fabulous chick lit novel! It’s full of fun with the tennis-loved how Daisy added the details of tennis in the front of the book (makes it good for us who do not know much about tennis!), and it’s full of photography-I can picture the pictures that Hilton were taking and could really feel like I was the one taking them, and of course, it’s full of the romance that make a good chick lit story. Oh and did I mention that there is just a wee bit of suspense with some secrets from Hilton’s boyfriend’s past????

Definitely check this book out. It’s worth 4 stars and recommendation but I must warn you….it’s HUGE!! It will take some time to read this book- I had to really PUSH PUSH PUSH myself but I did it in just a couple of days. Well done, Daisy and I look forward to more books like this one!
