Title: Sweet Spot
Virginia Miller is an up-and-coming tennis star. She’s gone from a ratty tennis court in a park in south London, England, to the world’s top training facility—Los Carlos Tennis Academy in California. In awe of the talent around her, Virginia is all the more determined to make the most of the opportunity and show that she’s worthy of her place there. Her mentor, Nadia Gorlando, has every faith in her.
But Virginia finds herself distracted—Nadia, as well as being a top-notch tennis player, is seriously sexy, and Virginia’s mind keeps wandering where it shouldn’t. Will her crush get in the way of her career, or can she find a way to push the other woman out of her mind before it’s too late?

Oh how I enjoy a Lucy Felthouse title! This one is focused on the world of tennis, and an up and coming contender in Virginia with her mentor and friend Nadia. When Virginia decides that a bit of alcohol will help her to reveal her attraction to Nadia, she gets horribly drunk and her behavior embarrasses her and puts her in hot water at the Institute.
Embarrassed by her own behavior, Virginia’s point of view is highlighted with a solidy defined voice and feels wholly appropriate. Her own concerns about offending Nadia when she reveals her feelings have her hesitant and awkward, which is endearing. When these two finaly DO act on their attraction, their connection is incredibly sexy and hot, with the inset of Virginia’s thoughts and desires adding to the steam. My only complaint is the over-reaction to the twist in the story.
Virginia’s behavior at the party after the US Open was out of character, and when the reasons are explained, I found her overreaction highlighted her youth and immaturity, and felt more than slightly preachy. The situation was horrid, but one would expect that reaction IF the plan had succeeded, and not so much for someone who escaped without injury. It did, however, serve to show more of Nadia’s character and emotional connection. A hot and steamy short that gives an insight into their lives and concerns, you don’t have to be a sport fan to enjoy this.
