Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.
Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.
So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in the renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.
Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.
And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble,/i>. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to side in the club’s best interest if he’s ready to play.
But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat or is one of them bound to get burned?
From an author who NEVER fails to bring me to my happy place, Bromberg’s latest release, THE PLAYER, was EVERYTHING I could have ever wanted in a beautiful, sexy, and sweet sports romance. A man with a passion…a woman with a need to prove herself. They weren’t expecting anything from one another, but what they received, was a kind of love and respect that is not easy to walk away from. They filled an unsuspecting need in one another and with every whisper, every touch, every grand gesture, brought them closer and closer to falling over the edge. If you’re familiar with this author’s writing, you already know that you will DEVOUR each and every page. But with that sense of familiarity, you will be surprised with the amount of depth and heart that Bromberg brings to every single page. Easton and Scout will become an instant addiction.
“You’re nothing like I expected.”
“I’m never what anyone expects. It’s a blessing and a curse.”
What starts out as a heated and tension-filled battle of the wills, turns into a beautiful and touching love story where Easton and Scout grow to depend on each other for more than just their bodies, even though the sexual tension is through the roof! They break down each other’s walls and slowly but surely start to trust each other. With outside forces trying to break them apart – their jobs, their family – they will have to work harder than ever to maintain the beautiful bond that they have created. The mantra ‘Clear mind. Hard heart.’ that Scout’s father has instilled in her the very beginning starts to matter less and less with every interaction with the charming and infuriating Easton Wylder. He muddles her mind and softens her heart, and soon, the mantra that was all but a shout when she started, has faded to a whisper.
She’s fucking addictive.
I want her.
Must have her.
The scent of her perfume.
Say yes to this, Scout.
The softness of her lips.
Say yes to me.
The tentativeness of her tongue as she fights her will to dive right in.
Let me the fuck in.
Two people living in the shadows of their fathers. Two people with the urge to run. He’ll slay every dragon for her. But she has to let him in.
OMG! You guys! As I’m writing this review, I’m having flashbacks of this amazing romance. I can’t even tell you how much this book and these characters have touched my heart. THE PLAYER is some of Bromberg’s BEST WORK, and I for one, want to DEVOUR it over and over again! Be prepared for the last sentence to leave you absolutely breathless. I wasn’t expecting it, but deep down, I know I should have. My heart hurts but I have complete faith that this author will take me where I need to go with Easton and Scout’s story. This book, like ALL OTHER from K. Bromberg’s work, is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! You WILL NOT get enough of this story. I guarantee it!
