After Wimbledon


After 12 years on the pro. tennis tour and four years with her sort-of boyfriend, Lucy Bennett has had enough.  She wants real life… and real love.

Her life, her decision.  Right?  Well, no one else seems to think so.  With opinions on all sides, Lucy’s head is spinning.  And she’s stumbling right into the arms of long-term crush and fellow player Sam.  Shame her boyfriend – his arch-rival – would sooner smash a racquet over their heads than agree to a simple change of partners.

As the Wimbledon Championships play out, Lucy fights for her life on and off the courts.  The question is: what will she be left with after Wimbledon?

Novel (approx. 70,000 words, 250 Kindle pages), suitable for age 16+ (sexual references, some sexy scenes – no graphic sex – and some mild profanity).  Written in UK English.
