Review: Offensive Rebound: Holding Court by MJ Fields

Offensive Rebound: Holding Court Offensive Rebound: Holding Court by M.J. Fields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story was about revenge. Plain and simple. Both Trae and Courtney hated her ex Brock for their own reasons. They each had their own history with him and had been burned in many ways by him. Somehow they fell into a friendship with each other that blossomed into a pseudo-relationship and grew into love.

Although a sports romance, it focuses more on the behind-the-scenes action than what actually happens on the court. I'm not sure how accurate it was but while reading it I found I couldn't care less.

Trae was a basketball legend, but due to a knee injury, he had to bow out of what could have been a successful and prosperous career in the NBA. As a single dad to a little girl with special needs, and after rehabbing his knee, he's given the chance of a lifetime: a season with the Seattle Stallions, even if they're the worst team in the NBA. The money alone will help his family and that's his sole focus... until he sets his eyes on Courtney.

Courtney has inherited the team from her much-loved father. And although she hasn't a clue what she's doing and the team sucks, she's determined to turn things around and make her dad proud. Predictably she encounters a few roadblocks along the way, such as her cheating fiance, Brock, who happens to be the star player of the team. On top of all that, she's finding it hard to earn the respect of everyone. With a wack support network that includes Trae and her BFF, she puts everyone on notice and goes about getting everything back on track.

Trae was a character that I love to love... Courtney was very easy to hate. I'm sorry not sorry. She was immature, spoiled, impulsive, and annoyed me right from the start. Somehow though, by the end, she kind of grew on me. Not even sure how that happened. Trae was always the star of this story for me. He was caring and compassionate, sexy and a dirty talker, and he supported the heck out of Courtney while making sure she knew his place as "THE MAN". It may not have been love at first sight for these two, but there's no denying that their connection was immediate.

Release Date: January 15, 2017
Genre: Sports Contemporary Romance
POV: Dual - 1st person
Steam: 4 out of 5
Series or standalone: Standalone, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a story about Christa (Courtney's BFF) and Parker (Trae's teammate)
