Book Description

This is the revised ebook edition

Off the court, tennis star Jason Cartwright's playboy image is taking a public beating. On the court, he's down forty-love. A knee injury is shutting down his game, and the paparazzi are splashing his love life on every magazine. A comeback is in order, but the makeover he needs to save his faltering career is in the hands of the woman he loved and left fifteen years ago.

While single-mom, Izzy Connors, sees people for who they really are through the lens of her camera, even without it, she knows Jason isn't the star he appears to be. Although his charm and good looks haven't dimmed since he broke her heart, all she sees is his wasted talent and playboy lifestyle.

Can Izzy put the past behind her and help Jason get his game, and his image, back on track? Or will the click of her camera shatter his world as well as his heart?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh voice, fun story October 15, 2010
    Finally! A fresh voice in contemporary romance. Game, Set, Match by Nana Malone is a delightful, sexy story with well-written characters and an entertaining storyline. The heat between old flames, Jason and Izzy, is obvious from their first encounter. They volley witty dialogue and calculated innuendos at each other like a fast-paced tennis match, and you're never sure who's going to win. Both characters have scarred pasts that cause them to make mistakes in the present, but they're also both determined to learn from that damaging past and move on.

    From the first page, Izzy's personality grabbed me. She's a workaholic mother who'll do whatever it takes to protect and guide her foster son, Nick, a boy she loves just like her own. In the process, she's forced to deal with Nick's birth mother, a drug addict who cares about no one but herself. Izzy also has to deal with the fact that the odds of a single, black woman being allowed to adopt a white boy are slim to none. But Izzy faces each problem with grit and determination, and under her don't-rock-the-boat demeanor, she wrestles with insecurities and self-doubt, just like the rest of us, often paying the price of putting everyone else ahead of herself. She's most at home behind her camera, where she sees others for who they really are and she can keep her own real self hidden.

    The fallout from Jason's bad boy image reflects on many current issues in our culture. Ms. Malone does a wonderful job of showing him as both a public superstar and as a private person dealing with his dual images. His charm and talent were both obvious, but his inner turmoil was the most appealing aspect of his character.

    The sexual tension between Jason and Izzy, along with the blackmail plot surrounding Nick, builds and builds to a delicious and satisfying conclusion. Game, Set, Match is a wonderful new addition to my romance library that I'll read again and again.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Game, Set, Match by Nana Malone October 13, 2010
    Izzy Conners has been raising the now teenage Nick, pretty much his whole life. Although not his birth mother, he has lived with her and she has cared and loved him as if he was her own. Sabrina, Nick's biological mother has issues of drug abuse and dropping off the face of the Earth at convenient times. Izzy is acting currently as a foster mother, never being able to convince the courts to proceed with adoption. Izzy often wonders if it is because she is black, and Nick is white - but the courts say mothers and children should always be tried to kept together.

    Fifteen years ago, Izzy and the now tennis superstar Jason Cartwright were friends - and maybe even a little more. But they lost touch - until now. Izzy has been scheduled to photograph Jason for Sports Illustrated. Jason is currently on the sidelines with a knee injury, but that doesn't mean he is still not in the public eye. They reunite and there are definitely some sparks. But, Izzy is in a relationship with her manager Simon, although what Izzy feels the first five minutes she is with Jason is 100% more than what she has ever felt with Simon.

    As they work together, their attraction flares. But life likes to throw curveballs, and this one comes in named Sabrina. Nick's birth mom, and former lover of Jason has come back home. No one wants her there, but she causes trouble nonetheless. Izzy wants to do everything right for Nick, and Jason wants to prove to her he is more than just a playboy gossip tennis star.

    Game Set Match is a pretty straight forward story of two people reuniting and working around adult, real life problems to make their relationship work. Izzy's number one priority is Nick. Everything else goes on the back burner.

    Nana Malone's Game, Set, Match is a great read. I really enjoyed the book and was immediately pulled into the lives of the characters. Even with a celebrity in the cast, they all come across as real people with real life drama and passions. I was laughing one minute and blushing the next with the seamless mix of humor and hot scenes. I hope to get more of Izzy and of course Jessica soon!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price December 24, 2010
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I do count my pennies and hesitated on spending the amount requested for this ebook, but decided it would be my splurge for the month. It was an enjoyable read and I thought Jason's character was allowed to evolve and grow naturally. Izzy, well, I was surprise she didn't have a breakdown trying to keep everybody happy and holding so much in. She didn't make it easy for Jason and I was please that her son had her back. The friends connection was not left hanging and was funny. As for Sabrina and the coach: never give up YOUR bedroom and way too much patience in handling the coach. I would recommend this story--it was fresh, no shaky plot, the sex scenes were good, and the ending was so sweet.

    The storyline dragged for to long. The self sex scenes were more explicit than the couple scene. The book didn't hold my attention ,however I did finish it, and wasn't surprised that I didn't like it....

    5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read - sexy, suspensful, story September 10, 2010
    By MH
    I'm so excited Amazon realeased this book early. I've been a huge fan of Nana Malone and her blog for a long time, and really couldn't wait to read her first book.
    Izzy and Jason are a couple I'll remember for a long time. And talk about laughs! Izzy's assistant Jessica is a scene stealer. I hope she gets her own book one day.
    And thought I should warn you: You'll want to wait until your significant other is around to read the love scenes. If you love steamy, this book definitely delivers.

    More About the Author

    USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.

    It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

    While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
