Just to prove that not only women read romance...
I actually bought this book a couple of years ago and it had been languishing at the end of my kindle library until I picked it to read next.
It is no doubt possible to pick holes in the book for various reasons, however the proof is hide much the reader enjoys the story. Speaking for myself the storyline had a different twist on it, I felt for the characters (or most of them...)
I will be looking for other books by the author.

You don't have to be a fan of Wimbledon or even tennis generally to enjoy this book. I'm not and I did. Ok, its a common theme of a girl stuck with a louse of a boyfriend and a much better chance in the offing, with all the usual doubts and setbacks thrown in. But that's typical chick lit and I suppose it's the getting there that entertains us, even though the end is never in doubt. That said, this book stands apart for a number of reasons. Firstly it is well paced as well as well written. Problems are solved in a reasonable time rather than dragging through endless chapters, as is often the case so you end up wondering if anyone can really be that stupid or indecisive . There is sex but the reader doesn't have to wade through umpteen pages of detailed eroticism each time, which many writers these days seem to feel is necessary but which I personally find boring. There are also a few unexpected surprises to keep you interested to the end. And although the main characters are tennis professionals and all the action takes place during Wimbledon, there are not endless descriptions of matches or technical jargon. Finally, the Kindle version is virtually flawless. Well worth the current selling price of £1.99

After Wimbledon is a light, refreshing romance mixed with a dash of quirky and fun instances. Lucy Bennett’s career and love life could be falling down around her or she could be starting a new life with the man of her dreams. She has the whole duration of the Tennis World Championships to find out how she really feels towards her tennis career and her current boyfriend. But how will it all end?

The story follows British tennis player, Lucy Bennett, as she considers this year to be her last professional year at Wimbledon. She feels that she has reached as far as she can at the age of 28. She begins thinking of her future and longs to settle down and have a family of her own. The only problem Lucy faces is that her current boyfriend, American tennis ace Joe Harker, doesn’t share her desires but preferring to stay in the game. Oh, and her parents (especially her mother) feels that she will be throwing her career away far too early and her mum possibly longs to relive her own tennis dreams through her daughter!

I’m sure many of us have felt the need to go down our own path, even when against our parents’ wishes. At this point you tend to question whether what you are doing is right or wrong and at times there is a lingering pang of guilt. But you must do what feels right for you and this is exactly where Lucy is at.

As After Wimbledon focuses mostly on Lucy, the reader can understand her actions and empathise with her emotions, thus making Lucy a realistic and likeable character. Lucy is like any of us with her indecisiveness and at times she does ‘put her foot in it’ and has the potential to cause a scene. However, she also has guts and after much deliberation at times she does begin to stand up to those around her. Needless to say that I do love Lucy’s character!

I was so excited to read this book and it’s my first review for chicksthatread, so I hope you like it.

This is the story of Lucy Bennet, 28. She is a tennis pro and the book starts just before the beginning of Wimbledon, one of the Grand Slam tournaments. I’m a big tennis fan, so I was really happy about the theme and the surroundings.

Lucy has played professionally for 12 years now and is thinking about retiring and starting as a coach at her club. Or should I rather say her family’s club. Her parents, especially her mother doesn’t seem so happy about that.

Lucy is in a relationship with Joe Harker, also a tennis pro. Their relationship is not what you call a normal one though ;) Not telling you more here, find out for yourselves…

Then there is Sam Pennington, Joe’s arch-rival. Lucy’s had a crush on him for years, but she was too shy about it. Sam plays for Lucy’s club as well and guess what? He wants to retire as well and he announces that just before the tournaments starts.

Sam and Lucy start talking more and more and they get along really well. They were drawn to each other and I loved how Jennifer describes all these scenes, where their relationship developed. The most important thing: They want the same things in life, which I think is so sweet.

Now let’s talk about the tournament a little bit. The atmosphere was great and I as a reader felt so close to all of it. The matches, the press conferences and everything what happened around it. Jennifer found a perfect vivid and real way to put this into the story. Not only the tournament, but also Lucy’s feelings and emotions were included beautifully and very carefully. I could relate to Lucy all the way.
