    The thing about Abbie Arden is that she can't be anyone except herself. I liked the character immediately because she is genuine. Genuinely conflicted, genuinely curious and hers is a story that should be read. The banter between Max and Abbie reminded me of the Spencer/Hepburn heat with a Spanish accent. I'm looking forward to reading the next book by Amy Bates and I would heartedly recommend "Love Match" for a read that will leave you giggling and wondering about the gift of risk.

    "I enjoyed this book" I finshed this book in between homework today and must say that I really enjoyed it. I thought books like these (concerning tennis, that is) didn't exist, so I was more than excited to cop it. The protagonist, Abbigail Arden, is one disturbing character. I actually feared for her public reputation 1/4 way through the book! She is a character that I feel everyone can identify with, only she lacks the ability to hide her flaws as well as everyone else. For good cause though! Max is a deep character too. If you dig hot, Spanish-speaking (or English-with-an-accent-speaking) tennis guys, dig this Tadeo fellow. My favorite part of the book was the epilogue. On the pros side, this is a good (and rare) book for tennis fans. I recommend it, even for none tennis fans. Ms. Bates wrote this non-tennis-fan-friendly, so everyone can enjoy it. The characters are rounded and you can feel their emotions. Cons are a few typos every so often, but not enough to ruin the... More > experience. Final vote: Get it.< Less

    "WONDERFUL ESCAPISM, A JOY TO READ." I love this book, it transports you into Abbie's world and it's easy to imagine yourself as her as it's written from her perspective Anyone who ever had a crush on someone (that's everyone!) will love this book and will identify with Abbie. I found myself imagining my favourite "famous person" as the leading man and was totally transported into dreamland forgetting about everything around me and not wanting to put this book down.It really engages you emotionally, is full of humour, is very descriptive and I loved the very profound epilogue. You don't need to like or understand tennis to enjoy this book (but if you do, you'll also enjoy it!) If you like love stories you'll love this book, I highly recommend it!
