I received Courting Caryln from the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This has no impact on my thoughts. My thoughts are my own.
I absolutely adored Courting Carlyn. I got that feeling right away that I just knew I would like it instantly and I kept wanting to stop reading to give the book a hug, but I didn’t because I was on lunch breaks most of the time when I was reading it and I didn’t want to get strange looks for hugging my e-reader. I also love those moments when I actually forget that I’m reading an advanced reader’s copy book. This book was also the first one I had read by Melissa Chambers and I really liked her writing style.
Courting Carlyn had a famous tennis player in it and a girl that had a crush on that tennis player. They ended up having to work together at a tennis camp all summer with a no fraternizing rule. This did not stop the two from developing a friendship and then a secret romance. I really liked that the romance wasn’t instant love. The build up was just right and it had all of the ingredients for a sweet summer contemporary romance book.
I’d definitely recommend this book if there are more readers like me that like the whole secret dating plot. It’s definitely a five star read since I enjoyed it the whole whole way through. I also didn’t want it to end. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for giving me the chance to read this!
