Charlie Davenport is the bad boy of British tennis - and third in line to the throne.
He’s a beast on the courts, and a wild animal in bed (according to all the tabloids). Girls are lining up for chance at his crown jewels, and when I stumble into the wrong Wimbledon dressing room and catch a glimpse of his game, set, AND match, I can see why. So what's a little good luck kiss between f̶r̶i̶e̶n̶d̶s̶ strangers?
I know better than to get involved with a bad boy like Charlie. But now he's on a winning streak, he thinks I'm his lucky charm - and you know what's luckier than a kiss?
Suddenly, I've got paparazzi on my trail, exes coming out of the woodwork -- and you don't know 'cutthroat' until you've seen a pack of hungry socialites set loose near the Royal Family.
I'm in way over my head, and even worse - I'm falling in love. Can this American girl win her Prince Charming? Or will we both crash out of the championships in flames?

Review: All-Stars 1: Royal Player
Royal Player by Katie McCoy is the first book in her stand-alone contemporary romance series, All-Stars . Told in dual POV between Charlie (the spare prince/Wimbledon tennis ace) and Emmy (the aspiring fashion designer/Wimbledon tea girl) this story is quirky, romantic, and fills the niche of pauper to princess love stories that we all secretly (or not-so-secretly) have wanted to happen at least once in our lives. I find I can really get into the light-hearted romance and writing style of this author and I thoroughly enjoyed this story. With just enough angst to keep it from being all fluff and no substance this was a fab book set in London and centering on Wimbledon. Enjoy!
This was really cute. I love how Charlie and Emmy’s characters evolved and it told parts of their stories... it was romantic and steamy in parts..
Readable but nothing exciting really happens. If you’re looking for an easy romantic comedy to read than this is it!
