Series: Ball Games #1
Author: Andie M.Long
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Hosted By:Francessca’s Romance Reviews
Camille Turner has returned to her home town of Rotherham to open her new business, a childrens play centre. She said she left to pursue her education but in reality she was driven away by the antics of fellow pupil Dylan Ball, whose parting shot, a photo of Camille in tight shorts, earned her the nickname Camille Toe.
After swearing revenge as she left the school gates behind her, Camille is reunited with a now older and apologetic Dylan who wants to be friends. She’d tell him to go to Hell but he does genuinely seem sorry. Plus he’s also matured into one sexy male. It’s so unfair.
But does Dylan really want to be friends or is it all an act to embarrass her once again?
Includes a Yorkshire/British glossary to teach you some rude slang ;)

As much as I love books set in the US there's something familiar about a book set in the UK it's like that could be me, that could be my life and the humour there's nothing quite like the British humour and this book had me laughing out loud. ~ Our Kindle Konfessions
Loved it! Such fun. Dylan *sigh* #teamballs ~ Surrender To Books
Omg I bloody loved this! Novellas are always hit and miss but this went out of the park. Absolutely brilliant. ~ Goodreads Review
Everything about this Novella worked, the banter between Camille and Dylan was both funny and sexy. The sibling bickering between Camille and Tyler was bloody genius and Camille’s mom was brilliant!! ~ Gemma Reads Too Much

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm not anti-novella like many people are but some, okay a lot lol, can be pretty poorly executed.
That wasn't the case here. I really enjoyed this. Even though this story is short, it packs a punch and delivers a well developed story and characters.
Camille left her home town for university after a rather mortifying incident that left her with the nickname of 'Camille Toe'. Oops lol. She returns back triumphant, ready to start her new business. She doesn't realise that her childhood nemesis, Dylan, has matured into a hunk of a man.
I loved Dylan and Camille was hilarious. There are many laugh out loud moments in this book. I super enjoyed the britishness of this book. I'm a brit and it makes a pleasant change. Fear not non-brits that you will not understand what is being said as there is an equally handy and hilarious dictionary included that covers the slang words used. I was slightly concerned how many terms there were for idiot and being drunk. Hmm. We must have a surfeit of drunk idiots here! That could be true lol.
I digress. This was a fun, sweet short read and I would definitely recommend to fans of romantic comedy. I look forward to the next Balls book.
