The Boys of the Outer Banks Tennis Academy

While writing GAME. SET. MATCH. I quickly realized that without any intention of doing so, I was writing about three extremely attractive young men, all of whom were fundamentally different in the way they live their lives, but especially in the way they approach love. I tried to think of a way to describe them to you without giving away too much of the plot and I couldn't! So instead, I bring you a short playlist, two for each guy, that represents them and their struggles with the L-Word in GAME. SET. MATCH.


Alex Russell


Raised by his single mum on the tough streets of East London, Alex Russell had way too much energy as a kid, so to keep him busy and off the streets, she enrolled him in every single sport available. Tennis was the one that stuck. After being spotted at a junior tournament, beating kids twice his size with a lot more training, the England's Lawn Tennis Association sponsored Alex and the rest is history. He has seven Grand Slam Championships and there are whispers of him becoming the greatest tennis player of all time...if he could find the time to train between parties...

Book #1 in the Outerbanks Tennis Academy series

Nestled along the North Carolina coast, the Outer Banks Tennis Academy is the world's most elite training facility. In this pressure-cooker environment, futures are forged in blood and sweat, and dreams are shattered in an instant.

Penny Harrison, a rising female star, is determined to win the French Open and beat her archrival, Zina Lutrova. But when her coach imports British bad boy Alex Russell as her new training partner, will Penny be able to keep her laser-like focus?

Tennis is all Jasmine Randazzo has ever known. The daughter of two Grand Slam champions, she's hell-bent on extending her family’s legacy and writing her own happily-ever-after...until her chosen Prince Charming gives her the just-friends speech right before the biggest junior tournament of the year, the Outer Banks Classic.

With a powerful serve and killer forehand, newcomer Indiana Gaffney is turning heads. She’s thrilled by all of the attention, especially from Jack Harrison, Penny’s agent and hot older brother, except he keeps backing off every time things start heating up.

With so much at stake, dreams—and hearts—are bound to break. Welcome to OBX: Where LOVE is a four-letter word, on and off the court.

Jennifer Iacopelli was born in New York and has no plans to leave...ever. Growing up, she read everything she could get her hands on, but her favorite authors were Laura Ingalls Wilder, L.M. Montgomery and Frances Hodgson Burnett all of whom wrote about kick-ass girls before it was cool for girls to be kick-ass. She got a Bachelor's degree in Adolescence Education and English Literature quickly followed up by a Master's in Library Science, which lets her frolic all day with her books and computers, leaving plenty of time in the evenings to write and yell at the Yankees, Giants and her favorite tennis players through the TV.
