Synopsis from Goodreads:

Mackenzie Bell loves two things: tennis and the Kendrick family. She doesn’t want to be anything like her mother, who hops from one husband to the next. It’s one of many reasons why she’s never dated. The other reason? She’s in love with her best friend’s older brother, Jesse Kendrick.


My mini-review:

I received this eARC from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way alters my opinion of the work.

Doubles Love is short and sweet, and nothing short of angsty. I should mention that it’s more of a novella than anything else. There’s only so much plot/character development you can try to fit into 70 pages, but this is a start. For what’s it worth, it had potential to be something else. The romance was predictable from the get-go, but the relationship between Mackenzie and her mother could have been explored further. I also would have liked to see the whole Olivia and Roger situation dealt with. There was no real resolution. One thing’s for certain though… this story is not over yet. Is there more to come?
