    1. Five stars,Dinjolina?Yeah.Five stars. *rocks on the balls of her feet*But, but. stars to a cont. romance?Mh-mmm.That about sums it up.Five stars by you? But you are on a 3 to 4 star maximum almost always!Well, the hell with you, mister! I LOVED this book! It had it all! A hunky ex football playerThey don't even have football in your country!Ok, we do not have it. But it was the ball. That kind of ball, being held by a man? A man with a six pack? It is sexy. If the hero was a tennis player I do n [...]


    2. 2.5 starsWell, I have to say that the first half of the book was more than good; I'd say it was a solid 4 stars, even if the heroine was so stiff and rude that she already grated my nerves. It was witty, fast paced, well written and had a yummy, gentle but also very sexy hero that compensated for the lack of charm in the heroine's part. Brett is an ex pro-athlete and current football coach in the high school where Chris(=Christina) comes to work as a tennis coach. What Brett doesn't know, is tha [...]


    3. Review posted: Happily Ever After - ReadsChris is a first time high school tennis coach, moving into her second year of teaching and trying her hardest to distance herself from her family and her past. After struggling in the pros as a tennis player, she never lived up to her parents expectations in anything and after taking enough hits to her confidence she starts doing for herself instead of trying to please everyone else. That includes breaking up with her controlling, emotionally abusive boy [...]


    4. The Game of Love was ACES and scored a Touchdown with me! Sports themed books are one of my favorite’s to read. As seems to be the norm for me now these days, I saw some of my peeps taking about this book and quickly added it to my TBR list. A tennis player heroine? SOLD! Lots of sports books feature mostly hockey and football jocksbut no one hardly ever writes about a tennis player. As a big fan of both watching and playing tennis - I knew I had to read itw.Christina seemed like a hard nut t [...]


    5. As most of you all already know, I am someone who loves a good contemporary romance. In fact, contemporary is my preferred genre and I would be one happy chick if authors continue to pen just straight old contemporary romances without the mystery, suspense or paranormal aspects in the mix. Don't get me wrong, I love reading a mix of all these genres from time to time, but still at heart I am a big fan of plain old contemporary romances when it comes down to it.34 year old Brett Wallace is a reti [...]


    6. Chris St. James is looking for a fresh start. She left her pro tennis career along with the emotionally abusive boyfriend. She found a new job as a teacher and a tennis coach. But her first day at her new job didn't go as planned. First she found out that all the donation money automatically goes to the football team (which is totally not fair) and when she lost her temper and complained it kinda make her look bad in front of her colleagues. And then there's Brett Wallace - a pro athlete that co [...]


    7. Former tennis star Chris St. James just wants her life to normalize. She's walked away from her pro career and has taken a job teaching and coaching the girls' tennis team at a small high school. Her first order of business is securing new tennis uniforms for her girls and planning a tournament to raise the team's profile. But first, she must get through Brett Wallace, former pro football player and coach of the boys' football team.Brett enjoys his status as beloved local son, and his cushy job [...]


    8. One of the best sports-related romances I've read in a long time. And a real surprise at $4.59 for the Kindle. Ms. Murray has written an captivating, interesting and fun story built around a female pro-tennis player and a retired NFL football player who is now a high school coach. Both are strong characters who have been victims in one way or another. Trust is an issue for both. The dialogue is well-written, there is humor, heartbreak, and lots of romance. A secondary cast is strong and a big pl [...]


    9. LOL! Loved this one. Fun, funny sports-rom with very witty dialogue. Reminded me a bit of a Julie James bk. Love a good sarcastic character and the h-Chris was at the top of her game. The banter back and forth between the Chris/Brett as well as the H-Brett with his family was hilarious. Side characters were fun too. Already bought the new bk out by JM, The Officer Says I Do, a new series. Hoping I'll like it just as well.


    10. ~* 4.5 Stars *~Fun, Feisty, Sweet, and SexyFormer professional tennis player Christina St. James doesn't have an idyllic past. Raised by emotionally stunted and controlling parents who withheld love and demanded perfection from their less-than-perfect tennis-playing daughter, she was ripe pickings for the sort of emotionally abusive bastard that was her NHL star goalie ex-boyfriend. Getting away from him was one thing. Building herself back up into someone who could look herself in the mirror wi [...]


    11. Brett ‘The Wall’ Wallace is a retired NFL player who has returned to his home town to couch the Northeastern High School football team. Wary of women after him only because of his past career Brett is instantly intrigued by Chris who seems to want nothing to do with him.Chris St. James is a retired pro tennis player who has just moved to town to couch the girl’s tennis team and teach high school math. Embarrassed and resentful of her pro past Chris hides it from everyone, and wanting nothi [...]


    12. "Love is nothing in tennis. But in life, it's everything."my favorite quote from the book!From the back of the bookChris St. James is ready for normal. After walking away from her pro tennis career and a toxic relationship with a star hockey player, she's starting a new life as a teacher and tennis coach in a small town. Now all she needs is an average guy to share it with.Brett Wallace is no average guy. Forced to retire from the NFL after an injury—and suddenly single after being dumped by h [...]


    13. It was so much fun reading The Game of Love. I really enjoyed it and now I want more from Jeanette Murray. Both characters, Brett and Chris were hilarious and the sexual tension between the two was steaming off the pages. Whenever these two were in a room together or just standing next to each other, I wanted to scream "Kiss already!" Chris has a past and her past has left some scars that when she sees Brett she can't help but dislike him. But the more time she spent around Brett the more he sur [...]


    14. First time reading this author and it won't be my last. I love sports romances featuring high school coaches, (maybe cause I'm married to one) and this has a double bonus about two coaches, retired NFL star, Brett, who now is the football coach at his old high school and a former pro tennis player, Chris, who is the new tennis coach/ math teacher at the school. They start out as enemies/adversaries both competing for donated money for their programs, but their relationship quickly evolves as the [...]


    15. I struggled with the silly misunderstandings and lack of communication but still found this to be a well written romance. Despite both of them letting their paste rule their lives, I liked both Brett and Chris.


    16. Joint review with Lou originally posted here: thebookpushers/2011/08/26/Publisher: Carina PressPublish Date: August 29thHow we got this book: NetGalleyLou: Nicole and I are big fans of sport romances, so when Nicole told me about this story, I agreed to a joint review coz’ there’s something about hot sports heroes that does it for me . Whilst it did feature a sporty premise, Brett and Chris are athletes that have now retired from their game. Brett has been coaching football, and Chris has ju [...]


    17. So I have been without power since just after 9am on Sunday the 28th, thanks to Hurricane Irene. As a result, I am tired, cranky, and frustrated. All I want to do is yawn and glare at things. Don't expect great revelations from this review. Fair warning. Anyways, I really liked this. I've been on a sports kick lately, and I went to another baseball game last night, so I was in the mood for something good. This is an ebook from Carina Press. The hero, Brett, is a former NFL star, now a high schoo [...]


    18. Chris St. James, tennis pro, is tired of being the target of her parents and ex's disappointment. She's never been good enough at anything for either of them and they have never hesitated to list in detail her many shortcomings. When her ex, an emotionally unstable hockey player, starts setting off warning signals she decides to move away. As luck would have it, she gets a job coaching tennis. This is exactly what she needs. She loves her job mentoring and bringing out the best in these young hi [...]


    19. My Review:I love sports-themed books and seem to have a weakness for books featuring high school football coaches, so you know that this book has a lot going for it already. I really did enjoy this book. It's a sweet little read and was thoroughly entertaining.Brett's character is awesome and I absolutely adored his family, especially his brothers. They all have a wonderful relationship with each other and his reactions to them letting themselves in with their keys to his house is priceless. It' [...]


    20. This is a time I wish for half stars. This is a 3.5 star book. I liked it -- a lot-- but not enough for four stars. Grade: BMostly because of the mis-communications, little omissions, and just plain stubborness of both Brent Wallace and Chris(tine) St. James.Ex-Pro Football Star Brent Wallace has practically sworn off women after he learns his wife was only with him for the fame and fortune. She obviously didn't take her vows very seriouslyr richer or richer should have been her spoken words So [...]


    21. After Chris retires from pro tennis all she wants to do is start fresh with her new career as a teacher and tennis coach at a high school. She wants to avoid pro athletes at all costs because she has been hurt by their egos before. But when she arrives at her school and sees how football is running everything she instantly takes a dislike to their coach and to add insult to injury he is a retired pro football player. Chris and Brett start off with an equally antagonistic relationship. Chris does [...]


    22. I really enjoyed this debut book by Janette Murray. When I was in junior high and high school, we had some very attractive coaches, so it was no stretch on my part to picture Brett Wallace. Now I confess we didn't have a women's tennis team (that I was aware of) but we did have a men's tennis team but I only knew about that because I dated one of the tennis team. There were no uniforms, no stands for fans to watch the matches, etc so these elements of this story didn't seem that urgent to me, bu [...]


    23. This was a nice and easy read. It was well written and engaging. While there's certainly nothing new in this book, I enjoyed it. What I liked:1) The alternating povs, not limited to the MCs, but also the the h's bestie.2) This book is about adults and they act adults for the most part. There are no juvenile antics.3) The writing. It was very engaging. While this plot isn't original, the writing made me invested in what happens to the MCs. 4) The H. He was a really nice guy. Sure, he had his own [...]


    24. Originally posted at: longandshortreviews.cThe game of love, just like any other game, is a gamble. When two people have a history in the pro athletic world and have been burned, the last thing either needs is a new relationship. But here they are, meeting by chance, and despite what both want, Chris and Brett find playing the game of love could end up the best thing they've ever done.Chris and Brett didn't hit it off right away. It takes time for her to warm up to this ex-NFL star. She's alread [...]


    25. I give it a 3.5 on 5Chris St James has a difficult childhood. She doesn't get along with her parents and they never support her choices. When she broke up with her boyfriend, Dax, her parents were disappointed. Chris St James used to be a professional tennis player. Brett Wallace used to be a NFL football player. Both of them are coaches at the same school. Chris thinks that every male who is a pro athlete is a jerk because of her ex-boyfriend, Dax. The book starts off with Brett and Chris wanti [...]


    26. 2.5 starsI've had this on my TBR list for a while, and was anxious to read because I'm always on the lookout for new, hot sports romance books.While this did include two pro-athletes in a relationship, there was very little talk of actual sports (except the HS girls' tennis team, which bored me to tears), so if you're looking for that, you'll want to look elsewhere.All in all, I thought this book was okay. It didn't blow me away, but found it a satisfactory read. I wasn't wowed by either the her [...]


    27. ** Taken from AtastyreadRetired tennis pro, Chris St. James meets retired WR Brett Wallace and it is mutual dislike at first sight, well she dislikes him and he thinks she has hot legs. He shows her that all jocks aren't chauvinist pigs with his support for her tennis team and for her as a coach and she shows him that not all woman are pro ho's looking for a piece of the pie. But can she set aside her past and fall in love with another jock, or will the past show up and ruin a future with the gu [...]


    28. Full disclosure: I received this book as a free galley through netgalley. I did not receive any compensation, other than the pleasure of reading it!Chris St. James is the smart, beautiful, sassy new tennis coach who crosses paths with Brett Wallace, the most-likely smart, hunky, laidback football coach on her first day at a new school. Both Chris and Brett are former professional athletes in their respective sports who have retired and become high school coaches and teachers. Thanks to some male [...]


    29. CUTEA cute but predictable romance about two ex pro athletes. Chris St. James is a former pro tennis player, she's given up her career and left behind her ex a hockey player. Jaded and disillusioned she plumps to coach tennis at a small high school. Brett Wallace who was forced to retire from the NFL because of injury is now the head football coach. He has his own past hurt, namely his ex money grabbing wife. From the first moment Chris and Brett meet sparks fly, Brett is handsome and charming b [...]


    30. The plot was meh. The high point not much of a wow. Loved Brett. He was fun, real, considerate, loving. But seriously the guy is a grade-A masochist. Why he put up with Chris's crap, I have no idea. She's so not worth it. She's a cold-hearted, stereotyping, judgmental, venomous bitch, especially at the beginning. Sure, she got burned by a pro-athlete, so she becomes a man hater, specifically if he's an athlete of any kind. That's just sad. And frankly I find her a sad excuse of a woman. What's m [...]
