Thank you to the Author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Now, this is the fifth book in the Singles series and while I think it can be read as a stand alone I think it would have been nice to see who was already in the other books and to just of had a little bit more background to Eve’s story, not that I didn’t enjoy the book! I did really enjoy the author’s style of writing, the story actually made me want to go out and try to play some tennis, the fact that it was in Ibiza as well just really gave me the overwhelming urge to just go outside in the side. I also like the premise of having the Singles group in the story as I felt it really just gave it something extra having some more diverse characters sort of just right there. Eve’s story had a few surprises and it was great getting to know her, of course as this is the fifth in the series I may just have to add another four books to the TBR pile.

Rating: 4/5

Would I read again: Yes

Would I Recommend: Yes

Would I read another book from this author: Yes
