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?
The Player is K. Bromberg’s new masterpiece. I’ve read the Driven series and a few other books by Kristy, and The Player is one of my favorites! I’m a huge sports romance fan and this book has so much baseball heart and these characters have such love for America’s favorite pastime. The writing is fantastic, the characters well developed and the story is great. It’s not your typical spoiled ball player/rehab therapist. Not even close. Easton is baseball royalty and he’s cocky and confident, but he has every right to be. But, he’s out of the game with an injury and when he’s expecting Doc, he gets Doc’s daughter Scout instead. A sexy, athletic, feisty PT. He quickly learns she can handle herself in and out of the locker room. Scout isn’t immune to Easton’s charm, but she has a job to do and it’s not sleep with the player. She has to remind herself to not get attached, but when she spends hours a day with him and learns more about him, her defenses are weakened. Easton is working extremely hard to get his shoulder better and get back out onto the field. After spending time with Scout, he’s determined to be more than just the player to her. He’s never wanted a woman the way he wants her. She’s perfect for him and not just because she gets him. She gets why he loves the game. She gets why he pushes himself. And she gets why it matters so much. Will Easton wear down Scouts walls and convince her there’s more to them than just player and physical therapist? Will Scout be able to put her fears aside and let Easton show her what it’s like to be cared for? I loved this story! So much. It’s deep and emotional. Easton and Scout both have similar past situations and they have their reasons for the walls they’ve erected. But they also know when something worth fighting for shows up. I loved their banter about baseball. The innuendos were top notch! I laughed, cried, got mad, swooned and literally yelled at the end! I’m not sure how patient I can be waiting for The Catch!
It’s intoxicating. It’s unexpected. It’s everything in a kiss I never knew I needed, and yet somehow knew was missing.
“We’ll start working our way to first base, and then, depending on how you’re feeling, we can move onto second.”
“Nice. You get to run in front next time so I can watch your ass, then.” I laugh.
“In baseball pants. That’s a requirement.”
New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.
A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.
Since publishing her first book in 2013, K. has sold over one million copies of her books and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over twenty-five times.
In April, she’ll release The Player, the first in a two-book sports romance series (The Catch, book 2, will be released late June), with many more already outlined and ready to be written.
