☆☆☆☆ 4 Bad Boy of Tennis Stars ☆☆☆☆
How could you not read this book? When I read the blurb, all I saw was Hot, British, Bad Boy of Tennis, and womanizer and I was SOLD!! Also, this is a Missy Johnson book and of course I had to read it.
Wildcard is the first volume of a three part series. It introduces us to Ryder Stevens, the hot British bad boy of tennis. He has it all from money, fame and countless ends of women lining up. The world is his oyster. But for Ryder, the game of tennis is no longer fun when you always win. He needs the thrill of being spontaneous and the edge. So when an unfortunate "hot tub" accident occurs, Ryder is put on the sidelines. Battered ego and put on bed rest, he has all the time in the world and so what does a celebrity do? Well, he answers fan mail or in his case "I don't like you mail." What!! Someone doesn't like Ryder Stevens!!! So what does Ryder do? I guess you have to go read Wildcard and find out who is the lucky lady that got this bad boy hot and bothered.
How fitting that I read Wildcard when the US Open tournament is taking place. All I can say is Missy Johnson, I need to know what happens next to Ryder!! I can't wait for volume 2.

Wildcard is a short, but hot read. This is about a British Pro Tennis Player finds his way of life. His hot, single and a manwhore. He starts up just enjoying life of being the top tennis player. He has money and can get any woman he wants, at any given time. Sometimes even a few women at a time. Until one clumsy night on one of his orgies, Ryder slipped and hurt his back. Which put him out of commission for a few weeks.
After finding out what was wrong with the boy he offered an all expense paid trip to help out. Which gave him time to spend and get to know Scarlett more. The more time they spent together the more he wanted her for something more than a one time lay. Ryder couldn’t believe what he was feeling for Scarlett, but does Scarlett feel the same? Or is she just using him to pass her time?
I cannot wait to read the second book, I was left with a big WTF moment that made me feel like slapping the hell out of Scarlett. Ryder started out a little rough being a manwhore and all, but he won me over quick.

Missy Johnson did her job well. She made me like and even feel so bad for Ryder Stevens. Ryder is at the top of his game. A tennis champion. He's cocky, confident, gorgeous and a serious player. You know the kind, new girl or girls everyday. Ryder is definitely not opposed to many girls at once. Tennis comes so easy to him it's just something he does Not something he loves. Due to an accident ( a hilarious mishap) Ryder is on the sidelines until he mends. Boredom leads to a friendship he didn't see coming. Book ends with a nice juicy cliffhanger. Great job Missy Johnson. You have me just dying for Sept 22 for book 2.
Can't wait for book #2! I need to start this review about the end of book #1. Fantastic cliffhanger! It is a WTF moment that will have you begging for the next book! This is a short book but MIssy Johnson does a great job introducing you to characters you fall in love with! How can you resist a playboy tennis star, a loving mom to a young boy with health issues? Through 98% of this book you believe this is a sexy star who whores himself around, falls for a beautiful mom and her son and learns how to love and then that pretty picture is ripped in half!
