@debbiereadsbooks, @goddessfishpromotions, @authorlizam ,
College students Nate and Olivia are a perfect match on the courts—and in the sheets. Everywhere else, they’re polar opposites and sworn enemies. But as the chemistry builds, a figure from Olivia’s past unexpectedly pops back into her life and the couple realizes they have more in common than they thought. Are these star-crossed lovers doomed to repeat their parents’ mistakes, or can they build a life together once the final set is played?
Love All is a steamy new adult, enemies-to-lovers billionaire sports romance with a sassy female heroine and he-falls-first vibes.
This story has also been published as a Kindle Vella Story.

Olivia stopped abruptly and I nearly slammed into her chest as she swiveled to face me.
“I don’t get it,” she said. “Last night, you couldn’t have been less interested. And now you’re threatening to stalk me?”
I hadn’t expected that. “Not interested? I am the picture of interested when it comes to you. You just caught me off guard last night. I’m used to this—to you hating me. So when you suddenly seemed to be coming on to me, I just wanted to make sure it was for real and that you weren’t being forced to seduce me by some brilliant terrorist. Despite what you think about all of us guys, consent still matters to most of us.”
Her eyebrows furrowed together as she tried to piece together everything I’d just said. “I don’t hate you.”
“You’ve literally told me you hate me at least a dozen times.”
She rolled her eyes. “Well, I don’t. You’re annoying and arrogant and entitled and demanding and self-absorbed and—”
“Olivia,” I interrupted. “You started to tell me that you don’t hate me, but all of these words suggest otherwise.”
That earned me a half smile.
“You frustrate me. But I think I could see us being friends. Except…”
“Except you want to jump my bones every time you see me?”
4 out of 5 (very good)

On the tennis courts and in the sheets, Nate and Olivia are perfect. Elsewhere, not so much. Can they really make a go of it?
Sometimes, I have issues will college-aged characters, mostly cos I'm way older than that. These two though, are perfect for each other and I loved them both!
Olivia is working hard to make ends meet: Nate doesn't have to. Olivia tars Nate with the same brush she uses for all entitled men, and steers clear. But something changes as they get to know each other properly. Olivia is big enough to admit she might have been a teeny bit wrong about Nate.
But when Olivia gets the shock of a person entering her life she never knew, things spiral out of control for Olivia. She will not become like her mother. Nate wants to help but only makes things worse.
I loved how these two bantered off each other. There is a good deal of passion between them, and it burns bright and hot, right through the book. Well, dims a little but given what happens, hardly surprising.
I loved that Olivia made Nate think about his own family situation and that there are ways out of it if he just takes that step.
It's steamy and smexy, but emotional and a bit dark in places when Olivia explains about her tattoo.
First I've read of this author AND the first tennis book! I will admit, while both Olivia and Nate play tennis here, the actual playing of tennis is not described in any great detail and I liked that. As the least sporty person on the planet, I appreciated that. But I'd like to read more by this author, I like how she spins and tells her tales.
