Sarah Granger ↠ 8 SummaryI ve iven this book 5 stars because I ve been obsessed with tennis since I was a small child and this is the book I ve always wanted to read about it Haha Jokes I ve never watched a single tennis match in my life and the one time I tried to play tennis I hit myself in the face with the racuet But that second part is still true I enjoyed this book hugely despite often not understanding the tennis stuff It s well written and engaging and I was really rooting for the main couple It tells the story of Ryan Betancourt a pro tennis underdog who makes Greek Astronomy good and ends upetting to know one of his tennis idols rather well Wink wink nudge nudge Anyway what I really liked about it is that it felt authentic but was also kind of cinematic with a well paced build up to a climactic and satisfying ending no not that kind of climactic I m not sure if it will stand up as well to a reread but I can say that this is the first book I ve read in ages that I didn t delete from my kindle after finishing
