Grand Slam by Kathryn Ledson

ERICA JEWELL'S GOT BALLS, AND THEY'RE ALL IN THE AIR... PR whiz and part-time vigilante Erica Jewell can’t lose sleep over her mercenary lover, Jack Jones, and his commitment-phobic ways. She’s not only renovating her house and training a weird new intern, she's flat out managing Dega Oil’s sponsorship of the Australian Open tennis, and, in spite of her horrible boss, doing a pretty good job. That is until a devastating explosion sends Dega’s reputation and share price plummeting. Public outrage over the incident upsets Emilio Mendez – rock star of the tennis circuit and the tournament's biggest drawcard – and he wants to cut ties with Dega. When Erica is sent to calm him, superstitious Emilio becomes infatuated and decides he can't win without her. He demands she stay close, much to the media's amusement and Jack’s irritation. Meanwhile, danger lurks. Someone is threatening Emilio and Erica, and she must race against time to discover: who’s trying to kill them and why? From the elite inner sanctum of the Australian Open to the packed halls of Chadstone Shopping Centre, can Australia’s favourite accidental heroine save Emilio, her job, and so-called relationship with Jack Jones?
