Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Tess Hamilton was a top tennis player with attitude. She led a jet-setting life, was a media darling, had money to burn, and kept her family cringing. After a career-ending injury, all that's left is the attitude, and she's desperate for money. Max Fontaine has raised his sister, Gaby. Now 16, she's poised to become the new phenom in tennis. Concerned about Gaby's penchant for temper tantrums, Max sends her to Glass Slipper Inc. for some moderation training. Aurora, one of the Glass Slipper's godmothers, recommends Tess as a coach for Gaby. Who better to guide her than the original bad girl of tennis? Max isn't happy, but Gaby is ecstatic. And Tess slowly realizes that coaching isn't so bad. Max and Tess can't be in the same room without going for each other's throats, which, of course, is a cover for their attraction. Readers will enjoy Kauffman's excellently well-written contemporary romance with its lively byplay, humor, and very human characters. Maria Hatton

I just love Donna Kauffman's books! She puts such great twists in romance, and the fairy godmothers add some great humor! Tess is such an independent person, I love watching how she grows throughout the book. I also love the chemistry between Max and Tess! Gabbi is a great joy throughout the book, and I love how Donna goes into detail about the emotions that Tess is going through! There are a couple steamy scenes, but this book is great!

I had read 3 of Donna Kauffman's books (The Big Bad Wolf Tells All, Cinderella Rules, & Dear Prince Charming) before purchasing this one and loved them all. However, if you're looking for the kind of romance or sizzle that was in some of her previous books, skip this one. Or just read the last 75 pages. This is really a book about tennis masquerading as romance. I was so disappointed by this one that I am writing my first ever Amazon review about it.

Donna Kauffman is a fabulous adult fiction writer. I enjoyed every one of her books (some more than others, but enjoyed them all).

Tess Hamilton has been tennis pro since age 15. But after a shoulder injury during a game and loosing her sponsorship, Tess needs to find a new way of getting money. So, when her brother ends up in Wimbledon (and he's getting married), Tess decides to fly to London and try to get another sponsorship.

Gabrielle Fontaine has just become pro and in her eyes, is being held back by her brother. Now at Wimbledon she's seeking advice and help and a coach that isn't picked out by her brother.

Aurora is now trying to help Tess out by giving her a place to stay and hopefully a job. Although Tess thinks no one knows her financial status but herself, Aurora's a smart lady and knows something's up. Aurora is able to get Tess to help Gabrielle, even though Max isn't happy about it.

Watch sparks fly between Max and Tess. And see Gabrielle go to Wimbledon.

Tess is, or was the bad girl of tennis. Up and comer Gabrielle seems to be taking over Tess's shoes even with Gaby's brother Max trying to prevent this. Through unforeseen circumstances, Tess, Gaby and Max end up together at Wimbledon and the sparks fly! Great sexy fun!

I enjoy this author, and I usually buy her books. However, the last book, Sleeping with Beauty, wasn't really one of her best. I was disappointed when I read it and ended up giving it to a second hand bookstore--not what I usually do with a Kauffman book.

I liked this book a lot better.

Kauffman clearly has a love for tennis and that shows in this book. But also, she managed to write a character, Tess, whom I found believable and endearing. I also liked her hero and his little sister. These were much better characters than those in Beauty.

The Godmothers from Glass Slipper, Inc. were back in this book, but this time the focus is on Aurora. I am beginning to be tired of these mavens and hope Kauffman gets a new plot device, but unlike Beauty, I didn't find Aurora's appearance in this book overshadowing the romance.

And the romance is back in this book unlike Beauty. If I were to rank the books including the Godmothers, I liked Cinderella Rules, then Dear Prince Charmind, then this book, and Sleeping with Beauty a distant last.

Format: Paperback
The fairytales continue with Aurora, Mercedes and Vivian at the Glass Slipper as Aurora puts the company to good use to help get two friends of her family to notice each other.

The novel follows (mostly) the beautiful former tennis star and party-girl Tess Hamilton as she tries to find her place in the world after being retired from tennis (before 30). Whereas most retired tennis players of Tess' caliber would live off of their saved winnings, the hot-headed Tess spent hers as quickly as she got it and the IRS walked off with most of the rest. Not willing to let her family (or the public) know that she is almost broke Tess tries to stir up some advertising interest but doesn't have any luck until she is invited to her brother wedding just weeks before Wimbledon (the last place Tess wants to be).

Tess is taken in by Aurora who (sneakily) invites her to be the "mentor" of a young tennis prodigy with a temper much like Tess'. The only problem there is Gabrielle's big brother Max who is a patient as Tess is impatient and uninterested as far as relationships go. As with any good Donna Kauffman novel the characters win each other over (but with more than the normal amount of strife and tension) and win the reader over as well.

I spent the majority of the first part of the book upset at Tess for being such a hot-headed arrogant party-girl. After several chapters though she sort of becomes less evil and more pathetic as she tries to figure her way out of her financial predicament with her pride intact. I gained a lot more sympathy for her after that.

All in all the book was good and a fast read.

I found this book randomly thumbing through the shelves of book stores.. I buy a ton of books based on if i can read the first 2 chapters in the book without wanting to do other things instead.. this book lasted my 2 chapters but I was hooked on the relationship of the characters.
For anyone who has ever wanted to step out of their own world and have a feel good read that makes you happy this is the book for you! It took me almost no time at all and granted I was in finishing high school when I read this- but I enjoyed every second of it! By the second half of the book I was on vacation and I would not put it down! So now I am buying it for my kindle because I want to be able to read it at any time! I enjoy Donna Kaufman books and even bought her Cinderella after wards to hopefully continue the magic and it worked!
READ THIS BOOK!!!
