Publisher's Summary

Virginia Miller is an up-and-coming tennis star. She's gone from a ratty tennis court in a park in south London, England, to the world's top training facility - Los Carlos Tennis Academy in California. In awe of the talent around her, Virginia is all the more determined to make the most of the opportunity and show that she's worthy of her place there. Her mentor, Nadia Gorlando, has every faith in her.

But Virginia finds herself distracted - Nadia, as well as being a top-notch tennis player, is seriously sexy, and Virginia's mind keeps wandering where it shouldn't. Will her crush get in the way of her career, or can she find a way to push the other woman out of her mind before it's too late?

Raw talent

Which scene was your favorite?


It is very sweet and I devoured this book in a few hours. It was just the perfect thing to take me away from real life for an hour or so.

Short and sexy

This is a short and sexy listen, slightly taboo about a tennis star and her trainer. I like a good short every now and then and this fit the bill. The story was great and it was super steamy.

Xanthia Bloom was a great narrator. Especially for this sort of book. She just had the right voice!

Sweet romance

Would you listen to Sweet Spot again? Why?

Yes, I enjoyed the narrators voice and the story was well written.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really enjoyed all of them. I'm a sucker for a strong female and there were plenty of those in this story.

What does Xanthia Bloom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

That accent!!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed! I also got angry and upset, but that's to be expected given some of the content.

Any additional comments?

This is the first time I've listened to F/F romance and it won't be the last.

Quick and easy listen but ending is very disappointing

At one point in the plot it was developed poorly and for the events involved brushed aside quite quickly. Also I couldn't marry the main characters reaction or overreaction with how she briskly explained it away. I didn't mind Xanthia Bloom's narration as much in this book but at one point a male character was talking and there's little differentiation between he and the main female character bar the accent. 2.5 stars at most

an enjoyable shirt story.

the story was week written and enjoyable, my only complaint was that it was short. I usually like the long stories. the narration was great, although I found it was a little fast. I just slowed the speed down and it was much better. enjoyable one day quick listen.

Good Quick Read

Any additional comments?

Sweet Spot by Lucy Felthouse was a good quick read. Virginia is an up and coming tennis star. She begins training with her mentor Nadia. Things start getting distracting as well as heating up for both women. Xanthia Bloom did a great job narrating and bringing life to the characters.

Coming out

If you want to know what it feels like to be with a woman and experience a climax than this is this story for you it is so spot on. I really enjoy this book. Back in my younger days I could relate to now all I can do squirm in my seat.
I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.

Quickie read

Sweet spot was a sweet little story. Due to it's shortness I feel I didn't get to know the characters very well. The story felt rushed. it was just ok for me.

Love/Love -- On and off the tennis court

Would you consider the audio edition of Sweet Spot to be better than the print version?

Absolutely. The audio version is done to perfection.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Virginia, the protagonist. Totally believable as she goes from one emotional extreme to another and then back again -- no small challenge for both author and narrator; but it comes across perfectly.

What about Xanthia Bloom’s performance did you like?

Terrific performance. She handles the erotic scenes with gusto and perfectly charts the emotional roller coaster ridden by the lead character. I've got nothing but praise for how she handles the accents; the two central characters are American and British tennis players, and each sounds absolutely natural. Amazing how she does that.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It certainly was. A little slow getting started, perhaps; but really the time spent establishing the relationships and setting up the "twist" was well worth while in the long run.

A sweet, thoughtful romance with steamy scenes

I enjoyed this. It's fairly short, but long enough to tell the story. I enjoyed the fact that the relationship was a slow-burn one, developing into a friendship between two women who each hoped the other was gay, but neither was sure. There's a nice story with drama as well. The lovemaking scenes were delightful.
The only thing which spoiled it a little for me was the narrator spoke rather too quickly, and her phrasing was sometimes a little "off" for me. And her accent isn't what I'd expect from a girl growing up in South London, playing on ratty old tennis courts.

Tennis with love

I enjoyed this story as it was only 2 hrs long, but felt longer in a good way. The story moved along nicely and I liked the fact that Virginia and Nadia had known each other for a few months before getting together. The narrator did a good job with the voices.
