The Ball's in Her Court - Book Review

She's got a great job, a loving group of family and friends and basketball skills like you wouldn't believe, but Denise DeWalt's life is far from perfect, and she's about to come face-to-face with a past she hoped to leave behind forever.
Twenty-six-year-old Denise thinks she's come to terms with her childhood in the foster care system, but when her old nightmares return, Denise realizes that she must deal with her past once and for all if she ever wants to move on to a brighter future with Rich, the only man who can see past her former life. As Denise's search leads her closer and closer to the one person she hoped she'd never have to face again, she begins to realize that her future depends on just one person--herself.
This emotional and inspirational love story proves that life is full of unexpected twists and turns--especially when it comes to facing your demons, fighting for love, and finding happiness for the future.
My thoughts:
I enjoyed this book, but it was heart-wrenching. Denise's childhood abuse and journey through the foster care system would be obstacles to happiness most couldn't overcome. Throughout the book I rooted for Denise and hoped that the hero, Rich, wouldn't give up on her. I think most men would have.
The Ball's in Her Court was interesting and well-written but you need to plan on being frustrated and even depressed at times as you immerse yourself in the story. I laughed and cried and felt immensely relieved when Denise finally accepted love, peace, and family.
A month-long book tour will run in conjunction with this book's release. Heather will be doing giveaways on her blog throughout the month and has just informed me that The Sister Pact will be included.
