Revenge is supposed to be sweet…
Caitlin Monroe is ready to confront her past. Years ago, her father ditched her mother for the NBA, leaving her pregnant and alone. Now he’s a big-shot coach, and Caitlin’s ready to take the so-called “family man” down. But on her way to the team gala, her car dies, and it’s her father’s sexy new star player who comes to her rescue.
Brady Hudson wants nothing more than to put his past behind him and concentrate on winning the championship for his new team. But when he finds himself the recipient of unwanted attention—attention that could destroy his career—he introduces the beautiful woman he saved on the side of the road as his "girlfriend."
Brady needs to focus on his job. And Caitlin isn’t about to date an athlete whose career is riding on her father—though he is a convenient way to get the dirt she needs. But sometimes love has other ideas, and it’s not long before their pretend relationship becomes a liability neither can resist…
Erin: Meet cute romances are soooo my cup of tea and Jamie Wesley’s Slamdunked by Love pushed all my buttons! A daughter out for revenge on her deadbeat father who also happens to be a high profile NBA coach and a chance meeting with the star player on her father’s team who just so happens needs her to be his pretend girlfriend? Oh heck yeah, I am going to be all over that!
Caitlin Monroe and Brady Hudson were fantastic together. Lots of chemistry, even more cute, witty banter, and plenty of swoony, steamy moments. I loved the growth that Jamie Wesley showed for both these characters. They were believable, likable, and relatable, which is tough to do when writing about a famous athlete. The writing in this was spot on, the pace fantastic, the premise sucked me right in and once I got going, I didn’t want to stop. There are lots and twists and turns as Caitlin and Brady continue their “pretend” relationship, and watching these two learn to trust one another after having so many issues with that very thing, was all kinds of fun.
Check this one out, people. If you’re looking for something sweet, swoony, and entertaining, this one will surely hit the spot.
