Transferring to another school and transitioning onto another tennis team is something Juliette Smith needs to do. This is her second chance at getting a college education and pursuing the sport she loves, and she has her new coach, Andrew King, to thank for that. He makes sure every swing of her racket, each serve, lob, slice, and backhand are on point. But she can't help but wish that he would notice more than her prowess on the court. With one discussion in his office, it becomes clear that Coach King is as drawn to her as she is to him. A coach and a student can never have anything other than the kind of professional relationship expected, but the feelings swirling around them can no longer be ignored. When they're together, they're just Drew and Jules, but for how much longer can they keep their illicit love affair secret?
Break Point is a prequel novella penned by Rachel Blaufeld and is part of the multi-author anthology entitled Hot for Teacher. Tennis is one of my favorite sports to watch, so I liked that it served as a backdrop of sorts in the love story between Drew and Jules. This sucked me in immediately. I found myself intrigued as to what led to Jules's transfer and wanted more of their back stories, which I hope we'll be getting in the second part of their romance. And yes, as is the case with many prequels, this ends in an especially evil cliffhanger because I desperately wished it was already January 2017 so I could find out what happens next with this hot twosome. I've read all of Rachel Blaufeld's books, so I got a kick out of this being at Hafton University. The first part is a 4.5-starred read, so the bar is raised high for the second one! ♥
