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 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. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether 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?
What do you get when you have a cocky hot shot baseball player and a feisty heroine that can spot a bad play before you do? One hell of a sports romance with some sprinkled drama! This was a sexy sports romance at it’s best and Easton had me at the first pitch.
Being the son of a baseball legend has it’s good and bad side. For Easton Wylder, the bad thing about this is that everyone expects him to be great and lucky for him, he was. That is until a dirty play injures his arm and sends him on the disabled list for the foreseeable future. But Easton is determined to get back out on the field no matter what and when he’s introduced to his new female PT, he knows he has a lot of work ahead of him on and off the field.
“You’re nothing like I expected.
I’m never what anyone expects. It’s a blessing and a curse.
Scout Dalton knows what it’s like to be a part of something team. Having a father who’s also a sports PT, she knows the drill when it comes to the players and she’s refuses to be a notch on anyone’s bed post. Treating one of the biggest players of all, Scout is about to get a crash course on the meaning TEMPTATION and surrendering to it has never been more sweeter.
I will admit that I’m not really a sports fan but as I was reading this, I couldn’t help but picture everything and it made me want to experience that for myself. From the smell of the fresh popcorn, to cheer of the crowd, and that first crack of a bat, I wanted to be in that stadium taking it all in and that’s what I loved about this story. Now can we please get to “The Catch”?! If you’re not a fan of cliffhangers, I strongly suggest you wait this one out, otherwise your bitch o meter is going to be Sky high. For everyone else that likes to live over the edge and thinks they can survive the wait, this one is for you.
Gah! Baseball has never been sexier indeed!!! Be still my beating heart. All the feels of this book! Wow! I FUCKING LOVE IT, HARD! First few pages and I declared The Player a 5 star read! Again, where is that 10 stars when you needed it the most? Because this book from K. Bromberg is a MASTERPIECE. This is the kind of book you don't want to miss. Again and again, Kristy proved us she can deliver and she never disappoints ever! The Player? It's a FUCKING HOME RUN TO MY HEART!
Just like any other readers, I've been a fan of the author's writing. Over the years, I've been fawning over her releases, reliving each words and lines, re-reading books after books and there was never a dull moment each time. Instead, when I reread her works I can still feel the emotions I felt like the first time I read the book. It never waned but instead grows stronger each time and the scenes keeps feeling so real.Ahhh.. how I love your words Kristy!
The Player is no exception to that. Reading this book feels like I was with them. My God! Easton and Scout is a dream come true! They are EVERYTHING and I love them to pieces. I was so lost in their bubble because I can't help not to. Their push and pull is addicting. Fuck! It was like a drug I cannot resist. I've been drooling over Easton and been cheering over Scout like some gaga. I have all these smile in my face so wide my jaw hurts. Have you ever felt that moment you read a book and then you just pause for a while because you just need to feel it deep in your bones? Gahd! I did that to this book. From the moment they met, to the witty banters, to the walls that crumbled and the sexual tension so thick, to the hot AF sexy scenes and the sweetest of all romance. Shit just got real because it OWNED my heart and mind. The moment they fell in love put me to the highest of highs.
"Right now, I'm going to kiss you senseless, Scout, and I want to fucking enjoy it. So, for the love of God, woman, use those lips of yours on me and not on words."
Gah! This is my drug. The Player is my drug and I am so addicted but wont feel any other way.
Please bear with me with my ramblings because I intend to keep it like that. I have no words to say except that this book is PHENOMENAL, Perfectly written, portrayed and delivered with the characters not just easy to fall in love with but relatable too. Let your understanding of the book stay within the corners of the blurb and that hot as sin cover because I tell you this, there is no better way to read this book except not knowing anything at all. Trust Kristy to take you on a ride because she covered all the bases flawlessly. I was surprised even. But it was the best surprise. It's the, "When you thought you knew what's gonna happen next only to find out you're so wrong after all". Well, that's me after reading this book. Ahhh..I'm still on a high you know...I guess, the wait for book two just officially started. :)
Overall, I highly recommend this book. The Player is more than just a sports romance story. In fact it's everything you never thought it would be. Scenes after scenes were scintillating. It's passionate and powerful at the same time, emotions seeping through the pages. It ended in a cliffy but man it's a good cliffy!!The one you will want because you don't want your favorite characters' story end. No matter how much you wanted the answers that keeps boggling you and your emotions in circus because you felt hanging, you will still accept several cliffhangers, will even plead for more clifffy even because the story, the characters and the emotions feels so ALIVE that you want that connection to keep in there and to never end. Ahhh..this is how good the book is.
