While the premise of a former African-American tennis star getting back on the courts for a second chance at fame seems ideal, this novel quickly turns into a formulaic and cold read. It's as if Forster categorized sections and plots, and wrote what seemed to fit. But nothing does. The dialogue is choppy and seems to be just a lot of filler. Forster binds together several factors, and it's this marriage of plot -- regarding heroine Lynne's past and present life and hero Sloan's powerful, then wishy-washy, feelings -- that will irritate the reader early on.
