    Very enjoyable

    This was a great YA read. It reads a little older than a typical YA book which added to the enjoyment. Vaughn Yarborough has spent the last few years playing tennis on the Junior Professional tennis circuit. Now he's ready to trade all that in for a little normal as he starts his first year in college. Before he can walk away he needs to get through the summer camp for underprivileged kids he's committed to. He needs to get through it without getting distracted by the very tempting Carlyn. She had a huge crush on Vaughn for years so when Carlyn is not only given the opportunity to help him with his camp but also get training from his coach on her game it seems too good to be true. Turns out it is! I think everyone will enjoy this book, I definitely recommend it.

    A Sweet Coming of Age Story

    **I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own** Courting Carlyn is a sweet, coming of age story about two teens finding themselves--and love. All Carlyn wants is to make the tennis team at Avery, the college her mom attended when she was alive. But, Carlyn's chances of making the tennis team are slim. Enter Vaughn Yarborough, resident tennis star. Vaughn needs Carlyn's help. He wants to go to Avery but the university wants proof that he won't cause any scandals if they admit him to the university. This causes Vaughn to create a tennis camp for under-privileged kids, but he needs a female tennis counselor with a squeaky-clean reputation.... such as Carlyn. Carlyn accepts Vaughn's offer which allows her to not only be paid for her counselor position, but she also gets the opportunity to train with his coach. However, his coach has an agenda. He wants Carlyn to persuade Vaughn to go pro rather than going to college...in exchange, he'll train Carlyn and help her make the team at Avery. But, Carlyn is falling for Vaughn...will she choose love or her dream of playing at Avery? This book was a light, fun read. It has a couple of tropes in it such as: instalove and shy girl crushes on popular guy. These tropes don't take away from the story at all, I just wanted to mention them in case you aren't a fan of these particular tropes. I enjoyed this story, but I didn't love it. The romance didn't feel 100% real to me, so I didn't feel all that connected or invested in the characters. Although, I do think the tennis aspect of this novel helped make it feel more original and new. Overall, I think this is a cute, light, summer read.
