Game On (The Ballers of Rockport High #1) by E.M. Moore
I knew I’d ruffle feathers, but the day I walked into Rockport High, I had no idea the cheap shots that were to follow.
You see, the Ballers and I have a history. They play basketball. I play basketball. But they hate that I play basketball as good as them. And the only thing they hate more than that, is me.
That’s right. I’m a girl, and I. Can. Play. Make no mistake about it.
The Ballers can do their worst, but I will earn a spot on the RHS boys’ team. This is my last resort to make a name for myself, and I can’t let them interfere—even if the so-called kings of the school have declared war against me.
Game On is a reverse harem high school bully romance novel.

Seventeen-year-old Quintessa Dale is the daughter of famous NBA player Timothy Dale. She has been playing basketball since she can walk alongside her father. Even though she is as good as it gets, she has to switch schools because her female high school team is no longer supported by the school.
I loved this book, even though the high school bully books have been all over the shelves. Since I played the game back in the days, I kind of breathed the book. When they say you can feel the ball, hear the buzz and imagine the court, I can see it, because I’ve felt it.
All in all, I tried to focus more on the story and not second guess little things that annoyed me, like how easily the Ballers shared their girls, or how good Tessa was, but no one acknowledged her talent. I understand people felt she was in her father’s shadow, but come on!!! If you’re that good, nothing else matters.
BUT, the guys were good enough to make you pay attention, the plot was captivating enough to catch you into reading cover to cover, so it was enough for me.
Changing school, being bullied by the most beloved guys in school and also having you parents in the heat of the divorce was bad enough to make Tessa your typical high school girl.
This is a 3-book series that I read in a row. It will no go into my re-reading selves, but I am glad I managed to have my hands on it.
