Book Synopsis:

“It’s your world, baby. Whatever you want, whatever you need, I got you.”

Starting Center for the Nashville Trojans Zebediah Kennedy has always been known as the guy everyone turns to for a good time. As a free agent going into the next season his future is unknown, but he’s determined to make the best of it, now matter how the cards may fall. His aim is to be a Trojan for life, but if circumstances dictate otherwise, the wizened vet will do what he has always done, adjust his approach and keep it pushing.

Kyra Macklin is a powerful, in-demand agent whose sole focus is ensuring her clients’ success on and off the court. She recently entered into partnership with a large sports agency and quickly learned that all that glitters isn’t gold. As she deals with professional disappointment, she is dealt a crushing blow in her personal life that upends her entire world.

At the time of her greatest need, Zebediah shows up for Kyra, being a port in the midst of her personal storms. And when the seas of his life experience a bit of turmoil, Kyra is right there to provide an assist. While personal and professional overlap brings them together, Kyra and Zebediah’s chemistry and attraction draws them even closer, creating a beautiful relationship neither saw coming.

Set in “The Athens of the South” Nashville, Tennessee, The “Nymphs & Trojans” series is a sports romance collaboration by Nicole Falls and Alexandra Warren that follows two fictional professional basketball franchises – the Nashville Nymphs Women’s Team and the Tennessee Trojans Men’s Team.

My Review:

If you know me then you know sports romance novels hold a special place in my heart. What I love most about each of the books in this series is the very clear detail that was incorporated into the stories that showcase the knowledge of the game of basketball, both on and off the court. It’s a refreshing bonus when paired with the romance of it all. The Nymphs and Trojans are a fictional treasure where I’m concerned. On a deeper dive into this book, seeing how Zeb and Kyra’s relationship progresses and unfolds was such a treat, and very well written. Their fun and flirty banter topped off by their unwavering support is something I loved most of all. And the Kennedy’s are a forever vibe. And getting small glimpses into my babies from the past books is always a plus. Oh and shout-out to Nicole for using my baby Jalen as inspiration and Zeb having an all black women management team 🙌🏾 Overall this was a great start to season 3.
