Overview

Olivia Stradmore, daughter to Senator Jonathan Stradmore, has one goal in life--win her forth grand slam tennis title in as many years.

Olivia doesn't have time for a stalker who disapproves of her less than modest life choices. She enjoys the occasional tennis pro in bed, short skirts, and the chance to free her wild side.

Her dreams take a turn when her stalker, known only as Ty, runs over her with a van and puts her in the hospital. Ty will stop at nothing to possess what he covets.

Enter bodyguard Brack Jacobs--hair too long, attitude too uptight, and body too damn hot.

Brack has a job to do and sleeping with a target is not in the target's best interest. Doesn't matter that Olivia is sexy as hell and bent on adding a notch to her bedpost with Brack's name on it.

Life is not as straightforward as it seems and deadly consequences await them both.

Can Olivia change Brack's mind and turn a spark of desire into a raging inferno? Will Brack survive the flames or would slam, bam, thank you ma'am be his safest bet?

- A Completion Sports Book. Expect spicy sex, an alpha male, and more balls than a girl knows what to do with. Each Completion book is a standalone with only a sports theme in common.

When I started this book I was expecting a hot sports romance, but what I got was so much more…and so much better! Holly Roberts has delivered a story set in the sports world that had the romantic suspense junkie in me saying…yes, please! Olivia and Brack are a fun couple to watch, the supporting characters added a nice secondary dynamic to the book, and the action and suspense kept me turning the pages and smiling. So we have Olivia. She’s young, but she has a maturity about her that comes from her life as the daughter of a prominent politician, as well as the fact that she has also been in the public eye as a top-ranked tennis player. When Olivia’s stalker makes a failed attempt at abducting her, she ends up in the hospital…and then in the care of the very hot, very alpha, very controlling bodyguard, Brack, that her father has hired to keep her safe. And let’s just say that she pulls out all the stops when it comes to trying to get Brack to do more than just guard her body! And we have Brack. Just that name brings images of hot, hunky, alpha male! And even though he wants Olivia more than his next breath, he knows he has to stay focused on his job – protecting her and keeping her safe – which he knows will be compromised if he gives in to her advances. You could feel the tension between these two from their first meeting, and things just keep getting hotter every minute they are together. I just loved watching Brack try to fend off all of Olivia’s advances – she really was relentless with her pursuit…and I just loved watching him dump her in the ocean to cool her down! As the threats of the stalker escalate and become more personal, it gets harder for Brack to stay away from Olivia. And once lines get crossed it’s clear the stalker will stop at nothing to get to Olivia – including murder. This was a really great read that, as I said, had a bit of everything that I love! And just when I thought the story was over, there was a bit more to the story when it came to Olivia and Brack and really loved that the story didn’t end with the resolution of the stalker issue. There were twists and turns, lots of steamy sexy times, and a mystery (or two) that kept me engaged through the entire book. If you like sports romances layered into your romantic suspense, with lots of heat, then Slam is a definite must for your TBR! I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

This was a 3.5 star read for me.  I was given a copy of this book for my true and honest review. This was my first read by this author. Olivia Stradmore is a Senator's daughter and the current darling of the tennis world.  She also has a stalker... Brack Jacobs is an ex marine, ex cop and currently assigned as Olivia's bodyguard, not that she's happy about it either. I really enjoyed the story of Olivia and Brack. Olivia knows what she wants, and goes for it. And when she goes for it, holy hotness Unfortunately I felt like the story was rushed at the end.  The author spends a good deal of time on the relationship between the two, but then rushes the ending, without really giving much thought to explaining more about the stalker.  It just felt like BANG, done.  There was so much suspense and build up for the eventual confrontation, but it all sort of fell flat for me.  I also wasn't really happy with how the author had Olivia and Brack come together in the end.  It just seemed like a really odd ending. Overall, it was an enjoyable read, the end just wasn't as good as the rest of the book.

Sexy and fun romance based in the tennis world with a strong mystery which drives the drama. Olivia is successful on the tennis circuit and works very hard to win grand slam titles. What she doesn't expect is to have her life and career threatened by a stalker. Brack is hired by her father to protect her after a failed kidnap attempt by her stalker. For a woman used to getting her way and calling the shots, being trapped on an island with the overbearing Alpha male Brack is torture. Of course, the fact that she is completely attracted to him doesn't help and he seems to be immune to her … or is he really? There is great banter and chemistry between the two as he works to protect her and she fights to get back to her normal life. I loved how the mystery of the stalker unfolded and was truly shocked by who it was … great twists and turns that kept me guessing and totally glued to the page.

Awesome! Love how the females in this series are not only mentally strong but physically not weak either. Olivia goes after what she wants and while she lives her private life discretely to not embarrass her father she goes after what she wants with no qualms about society standards. Grabs you from the first line!

HOLLY SMOKE.......HOT.........Holly has done it again. I love this series and I don't think I can pick a favorite. Slam is another hit. This women can write there's no if and or buts about it when she start writing she is on fire. This story really hit home for me because Ive been in this situation not as bad as Olivia but still it was pretty bad so I think I understood very well what Olivia was feeling. Olivia and Brack have this awesome chemistry with one another. The sexual tension between the two of them was hot and when they let lose JUST WOW. I also had so many laugh out load moments in slam. Funny how someone's mind works to come up with such an awesome read.....lol If you haven't read this series you need to go and pick it up. I promise you will sit up all night devouring it. Well done Holly looking forward to the next one.....Yep that's my way of putting a rush on you.

HOLY HELL. I LOVE THIS BOOK. Just so you know i can't stand books that are first person. But the way Holly writes you get over that fact real fast.This story grabed me from page one and did not let me go till I was done with it. I want a green/blue eyed man.There is suspense, crazy stalker,HOT alpha man, hardheaded tennis star,hot erotic moments, and funny moments.I wasn't sure if i wanted to read a book with a tennis theme but i am so glad i took a chance. DO NOT pass this book/author up .
