Book: Carrie Soto is Back
Author: Taylor Jenkins Reid
Thanks to Netgalley and Random House/ Ballantine books for an eARC in exchange for my honest review.
I know nothing about tennis, so I was a little concerned that I would feel lost while reading, but Taylor Jenkins Reid does not make you feel that way. By the end of the book, I felt like a tennis expert, sort of.
The story follows Carrie Soto’s career before she retired and throughout her comeback. You see her grow as a person, improve her game, as well as better her relationship with her father. Carrie is a very cocky person that does not accept losing so I could see people not liking the character. However, you will find yourself rooting for her to succeed.
The little bits of romance between her and Bowe I did enjoy. I love how he remained by her side through it all.
I think if you like Malibu Rising you will really enjoy this book. Taylor Jenkins Reid’s writing is great, making it so easy to get enthralled in
a story. If you have read her other books you will pick up on some references and characters you already know and love throughout the story, it was a fun and welcome surprise.
