Oh, how exciting! The first review for Grand Slam is just in...
Every top athlete works damn hard to get where they are, but sometimes life happens and something can throw them off their game. In Grand Slam, Travis Connolly is the top seed men's tennis player, but a car accident leaves him recovering physically and mentally. Enter sports psychologist Marie Sherratt. In her efforts to help Travis, she discovers his darker desires, and he begins to help her understand just what this BDSM stuff is all about.
What results is a hot, torrid affair that will leave the reader tingly and warm.
I have to say, I love both Lily Harlem and Lucy Felthouse on their own, but when they team up, man can they right a damn fine book! The dual first person narrative is well done, with both Travis and Marie having their own distinct voices, and it draws you deep into each point of view.
The sex scenes are hot, and the build-up of sexual tension between the two main characters is expertly paced. The BDSM in the book isn't too heavy, so even more vanilla readers will enjoy it, but there's enough detail for those who enjoy the kinky stuff, too.
Given the main characters are both from England, there's a fair bit of English slang, but the authors don't use too much and the meaning is always clear. Oh, and they find the North American slang just as amusing!
I don't want to give the ending away, but let's just say this book will leave readers...satisfied. I highly recommend it! - Michelle Graham
