ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Time, NPR, PopSugar

Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. But by the time she retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. She has shattered every record and claimed twenty Grand Slam titles. And if you ask Carrie, she is entitled to every one. She sacrificed nearly everything to become the best, with her father, Javier, as her coach. A former champion himself, Javier has trained her since the age of two.

But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself sitting in the stands of the 1994 US Open, watching her record be taken from her by a brutal, stunning player named Nicki Chan.

At thirty-seven years old, Carrie makes the monumental decision to come out of retirement and be coached by her father for one last year in an attempt to reclaim her record. Even if the sports media says that they never liked “the Battle-Axe” anyway. Even if her body doesn’t move as fast as it did. And even if it means swallowing her pride to train with a man she once almost opened her heart to: Bowe Huntley. Like her, he has something to prove before he gives up the game forever.

In spite of it all, Carrie Soto is back, for one epic final season. In this riveting and unforgettable novel, Taylor Jenkins Reid tells her most vulnerable, emotional story yet.

Ragnarlian ,

So entertaining!

I absolutely LOVED this book for a myriad of reasons and listening to the audio version makes it even better. You don’t have to be a tennis fan but if you are it’s even that much better, but this book is so much more than tennis. Get it! So entertaining and I am truly bummed that it went by so quickly.

Disappointing

Unless you’re very into tennis, this book is a bore. It has no climax, no deeply rooted story line(s) and the main character isn’t likable at all. It is very surprising and disappointing coming from this author whose other books I loved or really enjoyed.
