REVIEW: Carrie Soto is Back

Well, with these last few novels, I feel like TJR has become the queen of unlikable characters. Like Malibu Rising, the writing is great but I was not rooting for Carrie at all. And as not a huge fan of tennis, I struggled to keep interested – if I hadn’t been listening to the audiobook, I probably would have DNF-ed this one. I stuck with it but the progression and ending were super formulaic and predictable to me.

Also, if you’re going to have two languages in a book, give us a translation guide! I had to keep stopping to look up her father’s advice to her. I’m all for diversity, but help make it accessible!

Just because this one wasn’t my favorite doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy it. Definitely give it a try. Especially if you like tennis! 🎾

I read this one via Libro.FM ALC program, thanks to them for gifted access to this audiobook. All opinions above are my own.

What’s the last hyped book that just wasn’t for you?
