No one writes a fiercely loyal, misunderstood, and independent protagonist like TJR. Reid’s newest novel centers around the questionable and undoubtedly cold character we caught a glimpse of in Malibu Rising: the ruthless and passionate professional athlete, Carrie Soto. At the time of her retirement, Carrie was the number one tennis player in the world. Jump to 1994, when her record is stolen by an up-and-coming star athlete, Nicki Chan. But Carrie knows Nicki is no match for her: and she’ll do whatever it takes to prove it. I loved getting to know and understand Carrie, and eventually found myself sympathizing and rooting for her. Carrie Soto is Back is an action-packed story of growth, resilience, and the undeniable power of family and connection. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup
