America’s tennis sweetheart, Charlotte “Charlie” Silver, bounced out of Wimbledon with a huge injury. She needs someone to help her ranking climb, and possibly win a major. She finds that someone in the infamous tennis coach, Todd Feltner. Todd decides Charlie needs to completely changer her look and mindset, and turns her into the “Warrior Princess” in order to defeat her foes on and off the court.
What follows is a jet-setting life, going from tournament to tournament, becoming tabloid fodder and possibly finding love, with a crazy coach thrown in the mix. With a trio of delectable men, the tennis superstar, the famous Hollywood actor, and the normal hitting partner, Charlie is in for a wild ride as she attempts to win. But not everything is as it seems, and Charlie might be losing her true self, in order to be the “Warrior Princess” people want her to be.
The Singles Game, by Lauren Weisberger (of The Devil Wears Prada fame) is a delightful summer read that takes you in to the world of tennis, where no one plays by the rules.
