Losing At Love Synopsis:
Grass courts, tennis whites and the fiercest competition in the world. Wimbledon. After two crazy weeks in Paris, the girls of the Outer Banks Tennis Academy are headed to London with just one thing on their minds: winning.
Indiana Gaffney is fresh off a surprise win at the French Open junior tournament. Sponsors are clamoring for her attention, but what she wants more than anything—aside from a wild card to Wimbledon—is to be with Jack Harrison, but international fame and a secret relationship rarely mix well.
When Penny Harrison dreamed of playing at Wimbledon she never imagined agonizing pain shooting through her ankle with every step. With just a month until the tournament and the whole world expecting her to win, she’s determined to play, with or without the support of her coach or the love of her life, Alex Russell.
For the first time ever, no one expects anything from Jasmine Randazzo. After a crushing first-round defeat in the French Open juniors, the tennis world has given up on her, but worse than that, so have her parents, her best friend Teddy and maybe even her coach. With everyone writing her off, can she find it within herself to go after her dreams?
This is the second book in the series, and if you haven’t read the first one, well, you really should. I gave this book 3.5 cups, mainly because the amount of tennis details took away from the storyline a little.
Indy and Jack’s relationship is growing, but difficult to hide. It was great seeing them really come together emotionally and intellectually. This books shows them really solidify as a couple.
Jasmine is my favorite. Watching her take control of hee life was awesome. I would read the whole book just for that.
Penny is me. Well, me with athletic talent lol. Stubborn and hard working, this installment highlights her struggle with injury. The emotional turmoil she endures is nerve wracking.
All in all, the book was entertaining, and if you are a tennis fan you will love it even more. I would definitely recommend this book for YA lovers.

Jennifer Iacopelli Bio:
Jennifer Iacopelli was born in New York and has no plans to leave…ever. Growing up, she read everything she could get her hands on, but her favorite authors were Laura Ingalls Wilder, L.M. Montgomery and Frances Hodgson Burnett all of whom wrote about kick-ass girls before it was cool for girls to be kick-ass. She got a Bachelor’s degree in Adolescence Education and English Literature quickly followed up by a Master’s in Library Science, which lets her frolic all day with her books and computers, leaving plenty of time in the evenings to write and yell at the Yankees, Giants and her favorite tennis players through the TV.
