His best strokes can be found off the court.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reconnected 4 April 2016

I had read Vivian's List and Liam's List a few years ago and enjoyed them both. I didn't, however, recall Ms. Lovell's name.

Bookbub offered me this book, and I liked what I read in the blurb, so I bought it. I'm glad I did. I'm glad because I got to reconnect with Ms. Lovell's writing. I'm glad because the book was well-written and entertaining, and mostly I'm glad because Ender was just the right type of hero for Adelaide.

Ms. Lovell has certainly either done her research or has had a close relationship with someone with Asperger's Syndrome. As a classroom teacher I have often had the opportunity to work with children on the spectrum, usually the more high-functioning students, and occasionally, I will have a child with Asperger's. Ms. Lovell's depiction was spot on.

My own eleven year-old son has severe autism and has recently had to move into a residence with full time help; he'd gotten violent over the years. As a single, older mom, I was unable to ensure either his, or my, safety, and the only option the U.S. offers is removal of the child from the home (at least where I live).

I appreciate Ms. Lovell's willingness to show someone on the spectrum being able to handle every day life. I thought Adelaide was charming, and Ender's whole attitude toward her was endearing. I would have loved to have seen more interaction with Edric.

So, I'm glad to reconnect with Ms. Lovell. She's become an author in my TBR pile.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5+++ Absolutely Slammin' Stars! 23 April 2016
By Roanne Germaine - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ender and Adelaide spent their summers together as kids. But through the years and distance, they grew apart. Then his grandma informed him that Adelaide will be living with him and his brother since she'll be attending the same university. He was also requested that he must take good care of Adelaide , especially that she has Asperger's , an autistic condition.

It has been years since they last saw each other . Ender is now an athletic tennis champion who dreams of becoming pro soon , and a hot fraternity president with a string of willing girls always available for him. Adelaide has blossomed into a naturally stunning beauty but she's not even aware of it.

They built a special kind of friendship. Adelaide helped him train and she really gave him sound advice. He, on the other hand, became her social life coach. He also helped her explore her sexuality. To her, it was purely for educational purposes. But the more they spent time together, the more Ender was falling for her. And he wanted to be more than a friend with sexy benefits.

The Slam is actually the first tennis-themed sports romance I've read. But this book also touched a little on skiing/ snowboarding and basketball . It's really a delightfully sporty hot read. More than that, The Slam is also laugh out loud, hilarious ! Adelaide is such an adorable character. Her innocent and unfiltered personality is so refreshing. Everyone will love her. This book is a must read!

This is only my first Haleigh Lovell book. But because I fell in love with The Slam, I am now stalking this author, one-clicked her The List Series , and will definitely be waiting for her next books. Although The Slam is a standalone, it's so good that I want a book 2! But I don't mind if Ender's brother, Edric, will get his own story, too. Actually, scratch that, I want both!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adelaide is different but when she moves in with childhood friends Ender and Edric to start college she can enjoy being herself! 12 July 2016

Ender and Edric spent their summers at their grandmothers in Australia. It was there they met Adelaide, and she and Ender became bosom buddies. Now that it's time for her to start college the guys grandmother Camille, now Adelaide's guardian, has sent her to live with them and go to UC Berkeley. Having Asperger's syndrome has always made her different but college far from home gives her a chance to start out new. This story takes on Adelaide's journey to find the life she has dreamed of, with new friends and old and maybe love. Some may see her simply as different but Ender sees who she is inside and out and she is so much more than just a girl with Asperger's!

4.0 out of 5 stars It was the perfect concoction of awkard 13 April 2016

4.5 stars!!!

This book was HILARIOUS!!!!! One of the cutest, funniest books that I've read in a long time. It was the perfect concoction of awkard, sexy, and laugh out loud comedy. What other romance novel have you read that the heroine has a bottomless pit for a stomach(and has no shame about it), breaks down the ridiculousness of tampon commercials and horror films, and then tosses in the words 'Erhmahgerd' and 'Smize'!?!? Adelaide. I loved her.

There are so many funny scenarios that occur in this book, but I really loved how Haleigh Lovell took on Adelaide being on the Autism spectrum. This is the first book that I've read that the lead character had Aspergers. It was very enlightening and given Adelaide's difficulty understanding social norms, the perfect opportunity for craziness and hilarium to ensue. Fantastic.

Can't wait to read more from Haleigh and hoping for a book for Edric!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Read 4 May 2016
By SmittyBiz - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Adelaide and Ender are characters that draw you in immediately. Adelaide's interaction with others is comical and throughout the story she has a positive impact on everyone she encounters. Her perspective on life is beyond refreshing. Ender is humbled by Adelaide's approach to life and a better man as a result of knowing her. We need more Adelaide's in the world.

The story line is well developed and once again, Ms. Lovell has written a really good book that focuses on significant social issues.

I was disappointed at the abrupt ending, primarily because I wanted more. This storyline is too good to stop at one book. Please consider a book two with an HEA on Adelaide and Ender. I would be curious as to how Adelaide would process having children with Ender.
