His best strokes can be found off the court.
Ender Hemsworth has been called many things:
A Cock on Legs.
Captain of Sigma Chi.
Big man on campus.
Star athlete at UC Berkeley.
And he's always scowling like someone took a piss in his Cheerios.
Adelaide Vikander has been called one thing:
Twenty Types of Trouble.
And she likes to take the proverbial 'piss' in Ender's Cheerios.
When they're forced to live together off campus, sparks fly and panties drop.
Will Ender, the cold and unfeeling 'Cock on Legs' grow a torso, a head, and a warm, beating heart?
Note: THE SLAM is a full-length novel. No cliffhanger. HEA. Dual POV.
3.5 Star Review by Ashley
Oh how I love me a good sports romance! While this author is brand new to me, I was totally enamored by her writing style. There was something so charming and downright sweet about this story that I couldn't help but want to see the two main characters in The Slam get their happy ending.
Adelaide captured my heart right away. She was witty and so much more than her condition. Her character reminded me so much of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. Insanely smart and just a touch socially awkward. From school to sports she is good at everything she does. But when it comes to relationships and romance she is clueless. She enlists the help of her buddy Ender; they work out a trade of sorts. She'll be his tennis coach and he'll be her dating coach. These two care for and annoy each other in equal measures. But it didn't take long for real feelings to get involved. I liked seeing Ender jealous of her would be daters. Some of his and his brother's antics were downright comical.
I really loved that Haleigh Lovell didn't try to make this story something it wasn't. She kept both Ender and Adelaide true to themselves in their journey of self discovery. I laughed with them and got angry with Ender when others were careless with their words towards Adelaide. There was the smallest touch of drama as these two really came to grips not just with who they were but who they wanted to be. When they both realized that there was more than friendship between them I had a big, cheesy grin on my face. I liked that while this book ended, Adelaide and Ender's story is far from over. And these two have forever to figure it out.
