Basketball lovers this is a book for you!! While this book was heavy on the basketball terminology, you don’t have to be a sports junkie to read it. I am definitely NOT a sports fanatic and I found it fascinating to see the fast-paced world of pro basketball. I especially enjoyed seeing it from a journalist’s point of view! Most of us that read have a least a little fascination with the written word in any format, so to see what an investigative journalist goes through is really something. This book was fun, sexy, fast-paced, and even had a little danger included!
This book was one you don’t want to miss! The heat that Tay and Rob generate is off the charts before anything even happens!! I love that is sort of comes out of no where for both of them. They are “set-up” by Rob’s sister, and Tay’s best friend, and at first can’t even make small talk. She is appalled by his table manners and he figures she is just so not his type that it’s not worth it. How wrong they are! An accidental brush while reaching for a napkin changes the game for both of them. You will love this one!! Definitely worth it!!!

Points on a Curve is a slam-dunk read. Diane Nelson spins a tale of unexpected love and intrigue that spans the globe, pulling the reader along with snappy dialogue and witty prose. Rob is an unlikely hero—not the usual alpha male, but a dare I say, semi-nerdy, sports journalist on the hunt for the story that will cement his career. I fell in love with Rob from the beginning. Determined not to like the woman his sister plans to set him up with, he’s surprised to find that Tay is exactly his type, and his nose for news tells him there’s more to her than a pair of legs long enough to wrap around his waist.
Trusting the wrong man cost Tay her career as a professional basketball player, damaged her credibility, and wounded her heart. Her attraction to her best friend’s younger brother is unexpected as well as impossible (for reasons I won’t disclose). Determined to reinvent herself, the last thing Tay needs is someone snooping into the past she’s trying desperately to bury, but Rob won’t take no for an answer, and no matter how hard she tries to deny her feelings for him, she can’t.
Both characters need to be rescued, Rob from his loner lifestyle and Tay from the mistakes of her past. The problem is, they don’t necessarily want to be rescued. At least not by each other. What they want is hot, no strings sex, but they both realize once they sink that basket the game will be over.
I thoroughly enjoyed the game these two played on the way to the final score—a slam-dunk love. Ms. Nelson takes you center court and gives you a full four quarters of sexual tension and intrigue before the final buzzer sounds on her characters. In the end, everybody wins, Tay, Rob, and especially the reader.
I give Points on a Curve five stars.
