Description

World No. 1 tennis star Elin Larsson is in hot pursuit of a record number of Grand Slam titles. But between pressing injuries and growing anxiety, it’s starting to feel like her heart isn’t in it.

Gorgeous rival player Toni Cortes Ruiz bursts onto the scene, chasing her first slam.

 

As their paths keep crossing in big matches, a growing attraction starts to burn between the competitive women.

Elin’s used to winning—but not when the woman she’s falling for is on the other side of the net.

As scandals, the media, and the world starts closing in on them, Elin and Toni need to decide whether they’re competitors or on the same side.

 

A sparkling lesbian tennis tale about rivals and romance and putting everything on the line.

    Lola Keeley mentions her crush on Steffi Graf, well I had one on Martina Navratilova. Should answer all questions…! In the book Toni has a crush on world number 1 Elin and she gets her chance to know her better. With some intrigues from different sides they stick together and help each other, fighting against each other on the field and falling in love on their journey from one tournament to the other. Lola Keeley creates scenes where you really can feel into it, mentions situations of which you sure never thought of in the life of a tennis player. Gave me a new view and admiration for them (and all sports where you have to travel so much) and what they do. Very good book

    Good book and based on the carrier of one of my favourite tennis player of all times. The book is very interesting and when you start you can’t put it down. I love sports books, specially Tennis. This has become one of my favourites.
    I didn’t like this authors first book but decided to give it a second chance and I don’t regret it because it’s a very well written book, all characters are well created and I specially loved Alice. If you like sports books that this is one you can’t miss.

    Lola Keeley has a hit on her hands with her newest novel Slammed. This is a story told in the first-person POV through the eyes of Elin Larsson, the number one women’s tennis player in the world. At the age of thirty-two, she has just about done it all in her sporting career. In fact lately she has been feeling that her heart is not really into competing, except for one goal she has yet to meet. She wants to beat the current record of winning grand slam titles.

    The record is twenty-two wins, and at the beginning of the story, Elin has twenty. With only three more slam title wins to beat the record, she is determined to continue at least that long. But there are many obstacles in her way, including a persistent injury, and all the talented competitors she has to face at each tournament. Then there is Antonia (Toni) Cortez Ruiz, a young and very talented tennis player moving quickly up the ranks. They keep meeting at different tournaments, and the attraction keeps getting stronger between them. But will any relationship they may have survive the competitiveness they both have for the game, especially if it interferes with Elin’s career goal?

    I am so glad Ms. Keeley decided to let the reader see the story through the eyes of Elin. She did an excellent job writing in this POV, and made the story come alive. We also have a better understanding of Elin’s thoughts and feelings about all the people and action happening around her. It made the tale feel real to me. The plotline is riveting, especially the second half of the book, when the conflict of the story gets really exciting and complex. The romance between Elin and Toni is handled perfectly. It isn’t rushed and weaves its way beautifully through the story.
    I loved this book. It is well-written and one that you should not pass up. I am very pleased I had the chance to read Slammed.

    I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.
