The Slam by Haleigh Lovell Release Blitz + Review

 From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Haleigh Lovell, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

His best strokes can be found off the court.

Ender Hemsworth has been called many things:
A Cock on Legs.
Captain of Sigma Chi.
Big man on campus.
Star athlete at UC Berkeley.
And he's always scowling like someone just took a piss in his Cheerios.

Adelaide Vikander has been called one thing:
Twenty Types of Trouble.
And she likes to take the proverbial ‘piss’ in Ender’s Cheerios.

When they’re forced to live together off campus, sparks fly and panties drop.
Will Ender, the cold and unfeeling ‘Cock on Legs’ grow a torso, a head, and a warm, beating heart?

THE SLAM is a sexy and flirty New Adult Sports Romance that will make you laugh, make you wet, and warm your heart.


I am a huge fan of Haleigh Lovell’s writing and I am happy to let everyone know that she doesn’t disappoint in The Slam! I thoroughly enjoyed this story about Ender Hemsworth and Adelaide Vikander.  Not only did I love Ender and Adelaide but every other character in the book. The humor of this story...the ending…it was perfect and I really can’t wait for the next book to come out! I am dying to see what craziness Adelaide can get herself into!  
The Slam can be described in a different ways such as a romantic-comedy with a underlining sports theme.  Ender and Endric Hemsworth are the big guys on campus. They are dreamy tennis pros that decided to go to college instead of becoming pro right out of high school. They are having the time of their lives, then a girl from their past starts to live with them and everything that Ender once was used to will be changed forever.  
 Adelaide Vikander is childhood friends of Ender and Endric as they would come to visit family in Australia.  Ender and Endric remember Adelaide as a tomboy but when she comes to live with them, it is not what they remember as their time as children.  They always thought Adelaide was a little different and find out she has Asperger’s.

The book is told in Dual Pov, but let me just say that I freaking loved Adelaide! I loved being inside of her mind and knowing what she is thinking. She always had me laughing out loud with her witty comebacks.  Adelaide is taken under Ender’s wings to help her adjust to America and the culture. It doesn’t take long that the two to start having romantic feelings for each other.
I was seriously left high and dry with the ending. It was a great ending but I wanted more! I wanted to keep reading about Ender and Adelaide and it makes me excited to know we might get more of the both of them.  If we get to read about Endric, I would be completely okay with that too because he sounds like my kind of book boyfriend!
