Lindsey Dorcus and Gail Shalan's wonderfully matched dual narration gives a satisfying emotional fullness to this warmhearted contemporary romance set on the sneaker-streaked hardwood courts of Tennessee. When former professional basketball player Elle Cochrane takes in her cousin's daughter, Vanessa, it draws her reluctantly back into the basketball world. Recognizing the former hoop star at high school practice, Coach Julie Parker pivots from fangirl to friend. Dorcus and Shalan alternate third-person performances of Julie and Elle, drawing listeners into their mutual attraction on and off the court. Portrayals of complementary supporting characters, including delightfully deadpan Vanessa and both women's supportive mothers, uplift Julie and Elle. This fun and flirty romance engages with mental health, chronic pain, sexuality, and careers for a memorable experience. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
