Review: Sweet Spot by Rebecca Jenshak

Rebecca Jenshak goes from the hard court to the fairway with her latest release, and it's a standalone, although it is part of the author's Valley U book universe. Sweet Spot is the story of a promising college student-athlete needing to get her game in gear and the pro golfer and swing coach who could be exactly who she needs in more ways than one. Twenty-one-year-old Keira Brooks is a junior at Valley University and is part of its golf team. After one bad tournament, she's lost her spot on the team that usually gets sent to represent Valley U. The fact that her coach isn't all that keen on her and doesn't seem to have any qualms to encourage her or help her game makes things more difficult for her. Then she comes across Lincoln Reeves, who tells her exactly what she doesn't want to hear: that she isn't good enough. She makes it clear what she thinks of his opinion. She doesn't need it or him. Except she does. The thirty-year-old swing coach is the very person who could help her with her game. He quickly proves he's excellent at what he does. All Keira needs to do is listen and stay focused. And not fall in love with him.

I know golf is considered "boring" by quite a few people because it isn't a contact sport and more time is spent walking from hole to hole than actually hitting the ball. The thing is, I love watching golf on TV. There's something about it that's both calming and exciting. So, when I found out that Rebecca Jenshak's new sports romance was going to be focused on golf, well, suffice it to say that I was looking forward to reading it. The sports romance sub-genre is often packed with stories focused on football, hockey, soccer, baseball, and basketball, and while I love reading those, a change of pace is always appreciated. Jenshak's story had me from the get-go, and I liked the dynamic between Keira and Lincoln. They seemed to come along into each other's lives at just the right time, especially given that Keira desperately needed a coach who believed in her since the team's actual coach was a jerk who only paid attention when she was actually winning again. Aside from Keira and Lincoln, there were also some really great supporting characters who provided even more meat to the story. I'm giving Sweet Spot 4.5 stars. ♥
