With professional basketball as the backdrop, Fast Break could have been an exciting, fast-paced romance, but the character development is spotty. And while there’s an emphasis on winning, there’s no background on how Marc gets the disparate team members to work together. They just begin to change, win and grow up without the reader ever seeing how he achieves these miracles. Hopefully this will be explored in future books in this series. Meanwhile, the enjoyable romance is built on a good foundation.
