Review of ‘The Long Shot’ by A.L. Brooks

Golf, family friction and the most adorable love story. That is ‘The Long Shot’ by A.L. Brooks. Morgan has yet to win a major – and as the daughter of a multiple major winner father the pressure is always there. She’s also been unlucky in love and comes across to the media and public as cold. In reality she’s anything but. When a tv company wants to make a documentary about the women’s game with her as the main focus, she’s not keen. Producer Adrienne is respected and a supportive mentor to those in her crew. She’s not about to shaft Morgan, but Morgan doesn’t know that. Their powerful attraction is  a no-no while they are working together on the documentary. But I’ve rarely rooted for a couple more than this pair. 

I loved Morgan. She was vulnerable due to past heartache and had a lot to deal with regarding family issues. But she was an absolute sweetheart. Adrienne was quite a bit older than her and worried about the age-gap. Morgan was drawn to her immediately and who could blame her? Their story was tender and loving and had me swooning. I especially liked that a more mature character got to shine. An excellent story. Highly recommended.

Review of ‘Diamond Dreams’ by Ali Spooner

‘Diamond Dreams’ is the story of Cam St Angelo and her move to college and the softball league she has been dreaming of joining. Cam comes from the Louisiana bayous and her close-knit family life is a far cry from the life she leads at college. And very different from that of her roomie Tab.

I loved finding out about the life of the St Angelo family and I’m glad this is the first in a series because I want more of them. Cam’s youngest sister Sandy was adorable and her parents were loving and accepting people. The story was told at a relaxed, easy-going pace that was perfect for the type of life lived in the bayous . Cam’s sexual awakening was natural and beautifully done. She was a lovely character, full of wonder and hope and seemed to charm those around her. I was so glad she had Tab to introduce her to college life. She was sweet, generous and kind . I know absolutely nothing about softball but that didn’t matter at all. I rather enjoyed finding out about it through Cam’s eyes. I can’t wait for the next one to come out.

I was given this ARC in return for an honest review.
