About King of the Court

We don’t get a lot of NBA superstars coming through little ol’ Pine Hill, Texas. That’s why everyone is all in a tizzy over the fact that the USA men’s Olympic basketball team will be training here of all places before this year’s Summer Games. With little else to talk about, rumors about the players have been spreading like wildfire, and there’s one man in the middle of it all holding a match.   Ben Castillo. NBA champion. Olympic gold medalist. Widely hailed ‘King of the Court’.   The morning he walks into my dingy diner, I have enough sense to keep my head down and go right on wiping tables, pouring coffee, and serving up short stacks. A man who looks like that—superstar or not—has only ever meant trouble, and more trouble is the last thing I need, what with taking care of Nan and scraping by on tips from truckers.   If anything, he seems drawn to my indifference. His steely gaze pierces me behind the counter. My knees nearly buckle under the weight of his attention. But while Mr. Pretty Boy is probably used to snagging city girls with a smile, this gal is country strong.   I won’t be some clich├ęd convenience for him on his way through town. So look over your choices carefully, Benny-boy. We serve up sides of hash browns here, not heartbreak.

Review by Lisa Kane

I've read every book this author has written. And I've loved almost every one. King of the Court is no exception. 

Ben Castillo is the man-he has it all, basketball championships, tons of money, adoring fans. 

But he is going through a bitter divorce and he's closed off his heart. He's not even sure that his soon to be ex wife ever really had it. He's been chosen to represent the US in the Olympics and training is set to begin in Pine Hill, Tx. The coach has quite a bit of land there and it's remote enough to have somewhat of a private setting. 

Raelynn Birdie is drowing. She works early mornings at a diner making scant tips and the afternoons for a cleaning company. She grew up in Pine Hill, but she moved to California for college. She's literally a genius. She had a full scholarship in astro physics and is on track to making quite the name for herself. But then her grandmother Alzheimer's has progressed to the point where she needs care in a memory unit. She raised Raelynn and Raelynn will do everything she can to get her the best care. She moved back to Pine Hill. Unfortunately, that care costs a ton of money and just about every dime she makes goes to the private facility providing her Nan's care. 

Ben and Raelynn have their first encounter at a gas station where Ben and Anthony, one of his teammates, are lost trying to find the training camp. Raelynn helps them out. Let's just say she makes quite the impression on Ben. When he sees her at the diner she works at, he's not about to let his chance at getting to know her slip past him. She's attracted to him, but he's only in town for a few weeks and she has enough problems without becoming a star basketball's play thing. 

Their relationship may have started out as a slow burn, but it heats up pretty fast. They have some major complications and are separated for some time. But fate placed these two together and isn't about to let them stay separated for long. 

I loved King of the Court! Both the main characters are strong and determined and just good people. There are so many secondary characters, I kept thinking of stories about them to make this story part of a series. (hint hint!)
