Grass courts, tennis whites and the fiercest competition in the world. Wimbledon. After two crazy weeks in Paris, the girls of the Outer Banks Tennis Academy are headed to London with just one thing on their minds: winning.

Indiana Gaffney is fresh off a surprise win at the French Open junior tournament. Sponsors are clamoring for her attention, but what she wants more than anything—aside from a wild card to Wimbledon—is to be with Jack Harrison, but international fame and a secret relationship rarely mix well.

When Penny Harrison dreamed of playing at Wimbledon she never imagined agonizing pain shooting through her ankle with every step. With just a month until the tournament and the whole world expecting her to win, she’s determined to play, with or without the support of her coach or the love of her life, Alex Russell.

For the first time ever, no one expects anything from Jasmine Randazzo. After a crushing first-round defeat in the French Open juniors, the tennis world has given up on her, but worse than that, so have her parents, her best friend Teddy and maybe even her coach. With everyone writing her off, can she find it within herself to go after her dreams?


Have you ever come across series, which you wished you picked up earlier? Once you did, you could not get enough of. Outer Banks Tennis Academy is that series for me. Despite my lack of knowledge of tennis, there wasn’t a thing that I didn’t love about the book. Neither of them. I loved Game.Set. Match I enjoyed Losing At Love a bit more than the first book. To me, it felt that there was much more action going on through the book than the first book. Of course, here the girls got even more competitive than they were in the first novel. Reading Losing At Love you can’t help but feel connected to all of the three girls even if you didn’t experience what they had. Even after reading the 2nd book, I still can’t determine which of the girls my favorite is because each one of them has something, which I like. Each of the girls are so different, yet they connect so well with one another, most of the time.

I don’t know how Penny did it; actually I was surprised that she was actually able to go through it, for as long as she did. Towards the end of Game. Set. Match I wondered what would happen now, that she was injured. How it would affect her and of course if she able to hold off, for that long without training. It’s very clear how much Tennis, and competing means to Penny in this book. Despite her injury, she decided to keep on training and dropping out of Wimbledon completion wasn’t even an option to her, it was like she needed to win. Part of me was worried about Penny when she started to train before she was supposed to. I was sure that she would manage to injure herself even more, to point where it get to point where she would never be able to play again. I was glad when Penny finally came to her senses and withdrew from completion, and I knew how hard that was for her to do.

What I love about this book is how realistic it is. Not all of the books are realistic way that Losing At Love Is, especially when it sport related. Both the way the game is how completive almost everyone is. The communication between the characters. I love fact that it has more sports, more action then it does romance. I love Romance but once in a while, it’s good to read something that is slightly different. I didn’t even realize how competive the girls really are till I read Losing At Love. There isn’t anything that I would change about the book. After reaching the end, I am even more curious than ever what’s in store for everyone next.
