I loved LOVED The Devil Wears Prada.
So I was excited to read The Singles Game by Lauren Weisberger. Today’s book was an interesting read on the world of tennis. It was a fun summer book. Let’s take a look at The Singles Game.
The new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada and Revenge Wears Prada—a dishy tell-all about a beautiful tennis prodigy who, after changing coaches, suddenly makes headlines on and off the court.

How far would you go to reach the top?
When America’s sweetheart, Charlotte “Charlie” Silver, makes a pact with the devil—the infamously brutal tennis coach Todd Feltner—she finds herself catapulted into a world of celebrity stylists, private parties, charity matches aboard mega-yachts, and secret dates with Hollywood royalty.
Under Todd’s new ruthless regime, Charlie the good girl is out. Todd wants “Warrior Princess” Charlie all the way. After all, no one ever wins big by playing nice.
Celebrity mags and gossip blogs go wild for Charlie as she jets around the globe chasing Grand Slam titles and Page Six headlines. But as the Warrior Princess’s star rises on and off the court, it comes at a cost. In a world obsessed with good looks and hot shots, is Charlie Silver willing to lose herself to win it all?
Sweeping from Wimbledon to the Caribbean, from the US Open to the Mediterranean, The Singles Game is a sexy and wickedly entertaining romp through a world where the stakes are high—and no one plays by the rules.
I may have expected too much from this book given my love for The Devil Wears Prada. The Singles Game is set in women’s professional tennis. Now I’m not much of a tennis fan but I loved the movie Wimbledon so I definitely wanted to read this one.
Charlie Silver has to make some changes to make her dreams of winning in the world of tennis come true. And that may mean her looks and status. Not only is that stressful but she has an overbearing bully of a coach. She changes her looks and mingles with celebrities It does sound all very familiar to Weisberger’s other book. The story was a little slow but I liked how the setting traveled all around the world. I found the behind the scenes of professional tennis very interesting and fun too.
There were some slow parts that dragged a bit but that could be because I’m not a tennis fan. This book didn’t hit me like The Devil Wears Prada but it still was a fun read. I think many will enjoy the characters and settings. It was sort of a new revamp of The Devil wears Prada I you think about it. Very similar in story.
Should your read it? Yes! Even if you aren’t a tennis fan this is a good beach read for the summer!
Thanks Simon & Schuster for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
