When the opportunity arises for journalist Tally McKenzie to meet tennis ace Cash Gallagher, she grabs it without hesitation. Desperate for a killer story to advance her career, she’ll have to betray her idol and her own morals into the bargain if she is to succeed.
Renowned bad boy Cash wants one thing; to remain at the top of his game. He’s fought hard to get there, and he’s not about to lose his crown, especially over a woman.
When Cash divulges personal information, Tally seizes her chance and writes an explosive article. Incensed, Cash sets out to get his revenge. Except the darling of centre court gets more than he bargained for—a passionate affair with a woman he should detest.
But Cash is a man with secrets—secrets that could destroy his career. Dare he take the risk? Or is the cost too great, even for his perfect match.
Tracie Delaney is the author of the Winning Ace trilogy. She loves nothing more than immersing herself in a good romance, although she sometimes, rather cheekily, makes her characters wait for their HEA.
When she isn’t writing or sitting around with her head stuck in a book, she can often be found watching The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones or any tennis match involving Roger Federer. Her greatest fear is running out of coffee.
Tracie studied accountancy, gaining her qualification in 2001. Her maths teacher would no doubt be stunned by this revelation considering Tracie could barely add two plus two at high school.
Tracie lives in the North West of England with her amazingly supportive husband. They both share a love of dogs, travel and wine.
Arghhhh!!! Winning Ace is one of those romances that leaves you cursing out loud when it ends. You know the kind – the one where you are so consumed with the couple and their lives that when you hit the last page of their story that you immediately go to Amazon to one-click the next book because you can’t let go just yet. Yep. That was me and Winning Ace.
The desire to further her career puts Tally directly in the path of Cash, a professional tennis player and her teenage crush. Immediately sparks fly and there’s a intense chemistry between the two of them. Their initial meeting leads to a whirlwind romance and adventure. It’s exciting and captivating.
Honestly, there is a lot to like about this couple and you will be psyched you grabbed this book. I found myself feeling addicted to their banter and wit. My lady bits squealed over their sexual chemistry and the author’s ability to create a bedroom scene that will have your pulse racing. It’s all awesome.
But more than anything, I loved how Cash is completely bewitched by Tally and chases after her relentlessly. It’s what every girl dreams about and it will make you swoon. And while Tally desperately wants to be caught – these two have lots to get past to find their happily ever after together. However, their struggles endeared them to me and left me cheering them on.
Overall, I thought Winning Ace was an excellent debut novel and I wicked excited to get my hands on the other two books in this series. I cannot wait to see where the author takes Cash and Tally next! I would definitely recommend checking this book out!
