As Carrie fights her way through the roster of the women's tennis circuit, she realizes that there are those who she will have to fight hard to beat. Her ultimate goal is to ensure that she beats Nikki Chan thereby keeping her record intact. When Carrie Soto puts her mind to something, she works until she achieves her goal.
I am a huge Taylor Jenkins Reid fan, ever since Daisy Jones & the Six, and this book is a very good reason why. She always tells a wonderful story that draws the reader in and makes you want to get to know the characters better. I found Carrie relatable and definitely wanted to see how she ended up - whether she beat Nikki and if she ended up happy. I truly appreciate the way Reid always finds a way to interweave her other stories into current ones, it's like she is making her own multiverse and I would gladly live there.
