Review of ‘Personal foul’ by Lucy J. Madison.

Good romance with some background on basketball.


This is an easy read romance with a basketball background action. It gives a good insight to the game and the job of the referees. The characters are likeable though a little “too perfect” to be real. There is good chemistry between them and the secondary characters add interest to the story.

I had an issue in the author’s use of verb tenses. She would switch from past to present depending on the scene. It might be fine from the grammatical or the structure of the story point of view, but it didn’t work for me as it distracted me from the story. However, don’t let this put you off if you are looking for a light romantic read to spend a nice afternoon. 3 stars.
