Carrie Soto Is Back
Warning!! Prepare to clear your schedule and warn your loved ones you will be ignoring all duties, responsibilities, and family members for at least 48 hours as you devour this incredible book. Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Daisy Jones & the Six, and Malibu Rising, is one hot novelist for a reason—she is at the top of her game, just like protagonist Carrie Soto is ... or WAS before she retired as the most decorated player in tennis with a record of 20 grand slams. That is until a young Chinese American player, Nicki Chan, rises from the rankings and ties her record, prompting Carrie to come out of retirement at 37 to reclaim the history she made. Known as "the Battle Axe" for her ruthlessness and singular vision focused always and only on winning, Carrie is coached by her father and is helped by her agent, Gwen, who believes in the possibility of this crazy idea. Did I mention there is also a male tennis star, also on a comeback, named Bowe Huntley, who has been trying to break down her walls for years? All of this is exhilarating and will sweep you up completely and totally—and what a rush! No doubt, there is a bright future for this rising author.
