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?
In my eyes, K Bromberg never fails to deliver and she has certainly not disappointed with this new book – the first in a duet. This book pulled me in, gripping me tight and held onto me for dear life until the end – yes that ending!!!!! I thought i’d figured it all out, thought I knew how Kristy was going to leave this in preparation for book 2 but i was wrong on so many levels – prepare yourself for a cliffhanger.
Easton Wylder is the star catcher for the Austin Aces baseball team. Having been injured in a game, he is now currently on the disabled list and struggling with his rehabilitation. Scout Dalton is assigned to get him back to match fitness. These two are alike in a number of ways, both living in the shadow of their fathers – Easton’s the legendary Aces player, Cal Wylder and Scout the respected physiotherapist, Doc Dalton.
Scout is all business, she has a job to do not only for her but her father also. She desperately wants to prove herself and getting Easton back to game fitness is the way to do it. East just wants back on the field, he will do anything he can to achieve that and relieve the pressure around him from his club and his own father – sometimes he just wishes his father would be just a dad which is what he needs right now.
The attraction between these two simmers right from the start. They are attracted to each other, it sizzles, it crackles until it reaches boiling point. Both have trust issues, Scout is easily spooked but Easton can be very persuasive when he wants something and that something he wants is Scout
Kristy just has this way with words that has you feeling her characters every single emotion. The Player is certainly right up there with my favourites of Kristy’s books, for me its actually really hard to pick a complete favourite as i love them all for different reasons. This book is packed full of intense chemistry, a dose of angst and will have you like me, hooked from the very first page. At the end, i was left wanting more, another quality of Kristy’s writing, no matter what the ending she always leaves me wanting, no needing more. Can i wait for book 2 … well, i’m going to have to I guess. It can’t come soon enough.
