Review: Grand Slam (Raw Talent #1) by Lucy Felthouse, Lily Harlem

California had seduced me with promises of a new life working at Los Carlos Tennis Academy. What I didn’t expect was the dark, brooding number one seed, Travis Connolly, resisting my help. He wasn’t interested in my psychology skills. Instead his attention was drawn to the edgy, sharper corners of my desires, proving that they existed, setting me challenges and driving me crazy to the point of combustion.

I’m the best tennis player in the world—officially—so why would I need a damn woman full of psychobabble to get me on form? Despite my irritation, however, I can't resist pushing Marie Sherratt’s buttons even though doing that shows her the darkest shades of my lust, the parts of me I buried deep. So I set her a challenge, one she rises to, one that has me rising too, and before long my game relies on her calling the shots, hitting the target and bending to my will. One thing was certain, being not just master of the court, but also of Marie is seriously good for my soul.

Stars: four-stars

This hot and steamy sports themed book has it all.  An incredibly hot and arrogant athlete who falls for a stubborn and tantalizing woman that he finds himself attracted to on a nuclear level – which leads to really hot, steamy sex.  Travis and Marie have incredible chemistry, and their story is super sex charged.  Marie is smart, sexy and unavoidable, and Travis is the epitome of a male athlete (need I say more?)   Their scenes together are seriously entertaining, at times laughable, and very erotic.

I enjoyed Grand Slam a lot!  I’ve never really been a big fan of the whole athlete/trainer type of book, but this one captured my attention from the start.  It’s a quick read and is very well written with a lot of attention paid to details – particularly the details of their sexual romps which are scorching hot!

Overall, it’s an erotic romance that teases and definitely pleases your literary senses.
