King of the Court by Melanie Munton
CAM DONOVAN Cam has been the king of college basketball for the past three years. Every season he dominates the basketball scene, and the entire country loves him. Well, everyone except for the only girl whose attention he actually wants.
REESE BRADLEY As the new trainer for the men’s basketball team at North Calhoun University, Reese literally can’t stay away from the cocky star forward. She tends to avoid Cam’s type. The big-man-on-campus, alpha male type. But she’s finding it very difficult to ignore him and his relentless flirting.
THERE’S JUST ONE PROBLEM Reese is the coach’s daughter. Cam’s coach has made it very clear that all members of his team are to keep their hands off Reese, no exceptions. With his final season at NCU under way, the last thing Cam needs is for his team’s dynamic to be screwed up, all because he couldn’t keep from screwing the coach’s daughter. He has to stay far away from her if he wants to take his team all the way.
MAKE THAT TWO PROBLEMS
Trey Warren. Point guard for NCU’s rival school. A.k.a., Cam’s long-time arch rival and coincidentally, Reese’s greatest nemesis. Trey is the one person who can send Cam’s basketball empire crumbling to the ground. Not to mention make matters between Cam and Reese even more complicated.
As the highly publicized rivalry between Cam and Trey intensifies, the attraction between Cam and Reese heats up to scorching levels. No matter what, they know they have to resist each other. The more they deny their feelings, though, the stronger the pull between them becomes. But can they withstand secrets, betrayals, rivalries, and the ever-present press? Even if they break all the rules, will they be strong enough to fight through the forces conspiring against them?
AFTER ALL, EVEN KINGS CAN BE OVERTHROWN…
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from Ari
King of the Court was my first book from author Melanie Munton and I must say that it was a great read with spot on chemistry and enough angst and drama to have me sneaking off to read in between Christmas festivities.
KotC was a good sports romance that checked off a bunch of my must-have boxes. I freaking loved Cam and his cheeky, self-assured, baller attitude. He’s everything I wanted with hot sprinkles on top. Still, he had a softer side and the way he relentlessly pursues Reese were probably two of the things I loved about him most. Reese on her part was a good heroine. She’s smart, dedicated to her job and despite her best efforts not immune to Cam’s charms. The sexual tension between the two sizzles off the pages and pulls you in to the story. Although at times you kind of just want to shake Cam and Reese and get them to cut the crap and just make out already. The banter between kind of made up for that, though. The subplot of Cam and Trey’s rivalry adds yet another element of tension that has you reading as fast as you can to find out how everything will unfold.
Steamy, exciting, and packed with plenty of feels, King of the Court is sure to conquer its way to the top of your TBR list. Four stars.
