Blurb

Juliette Smith, star tennis player, is starting over at a new university. Traumatized by hazing at her last school, all she wants is to attend classes, win tennis matches, and be left the hell alone.

She should have known her coach, Drew King, would be a problem from the moment he flexed his sexy-as-hell forearms.

What happens when you mix a pissed-off woman with a bunch of snooty teammates and a hot coach?

A heated match, complete with team politics and a forbidden game of singles with the coach.

It’s reckless and hot until one of them taps out.

Unable to admit she may be better off as a double, Jules is convinced she needs to play the game of life alone. Then life throws her a lob and she runs smack into her past.

Coach King is back, and he wants to take control of the game. But she’s not certain she wants his advice when it comes to the life she’s built.

The power struggle is on, but this time off the court.

Review

I got the chance to first read Break Point as a novella in Hot for Teacher and fell in love with the story there.  So when I heard that it had been made into a full length novel, I was itching to get my hands on it.  I love taboo stories about teachers and even though this was technically a coach it still works for me.  I was so excited to see how the rest of Jules and Drew’s story played out.  Now if you’re like me and you’ve read the story before, make sure you don’t just skip over the first part to get to the juicy bits that you haven’t read before.  Blaufeld added some new stuff in there; you’ll want to read those bits too!


Jules Smith is a survivor, she’s got a tough shell and she knows she needs to protect herself.  She’s definitely got some sass and while outwardly she seems to know her worth, she also has a soft spot of vulnerability that she’s hiding from everyone.  And she’s independent to the extreme.  Drew King is her hot tennis coach.  He’s dominant, demanding and just everything yummy about being an alpha.  I loved the
chemistry between the two of them.  It was passionate, red hot and leapt off the pages.  There was some great character development here, especially with Drew.  When certain things come to light, he definitely steps up to the plate.  He has a tender, playful side to him that I adored.  Jules, I had a hard time connecting to because some of her actions I don’t agree with but that didn’t keep me from enjoying the book.  And I wish I saw more development in her throughout the book, it just seemed like it
was *POOF* all her issues are gone.


Overall, a pretty great sports/taboo romance.  I absolutely enjoyed it.  It was pretty low on the drama/angst scale and my emotions definitely didn’t go careening out of control unless I was swooning over Drew.  Break Point was an easy read that kept me smiling.  If you like sports romance, taboo romance or even just romances with swoon worthy guys, this is definitely worth a chance. -Peace and love, Buxom J
