Game, set… match made in heaven.
Spoiled socialite Quinn Valenzuela has no interest in sports or his family’s huge sporting goods empire, Sparta Athletics. So when Quinn learns his grandfather has died and he’s in control of the corporation, no one is more surprised than Quinn himself.
Dedicated COO Porter Davis has little time and less patience for brats like Quinn who have never done a day’s work, but circumstances leave him with little choice. Quinn claims he’s ready to leave partying behind and grow up, but it’ll take more than words to earn Porter’s respect. As it turns out, they can work—and play—together after all. A friends with benefits arrangement makes sense for the two busy men, but are they too different for it to ever develop into more? Not if Quinn can convince Porter he has his head in the game.
This book was not at all what I was expecting. Just based on the title alone I thought I was reading about a tennis romance. I did not get that at all. I got so much more. Yes, there was tennis in here but not what I thought. This is the story of a slightly older businessman Porter Davis and a young cocky socialite Quinn Valenzuela that has everything handed to him. They could not be any more different. It is a classic love/hate relationship. Quinn loves to goad Porter and Porter hates him. At the same time, they both have their inner monologue that we get to see what the feel and they both find each other attractive.
Quinn is coming home after getting a phone call that his grandfather passed away. Porter runs the family-owned sporting good empire Sparta Athletics. When Quinn finds out it was left to him to run he is shocked, baffled by it. Porter is as well. Porter thought his best friend and Quinn’s mother Marisol would be the one to inherit the sporting goods empire
Now as I was saying they could not be any more different. One wants to earn and make the money the other wants to spend it, globetrotting the world looking for sugar daddies. Not a bad thing when people are ok with it. Quinn is footloose and fancy-free, Porter is very serious by the book. To let off steam he plays tennis with his assistant. Quinn goes to clubs. So when Quinn decides to stay and grows a backbone and wants to give this business opportunity a go they form a tentative friendship. This is where the story takes a twist.
I liked it, their friendship was good. Then when things change you can see them change and they go from enemies to friends to friends with benefits. They think it is perfect but it is? What happens one decides he wants more what will happen when the may not? You will have to read it and find out. You get all of the elements and some hot and sexy times. These men are hot and passionate. You won’t be sorry.
