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?
I never thought a K. Bromberg would top Driven as my favorite of her books. And while Driven will always hold a special place in my heart for being my first of her books, Easton and Scout have wedged themselves into the top spot. The Player was captivating from the start, I couldn’t put the book down and I didn’t want to. This is huge for someone who doesn’t read sports romance on a regular basis and not only that, but also isn’t a huge baseball fan. And the thing is, Bromberg made me want to go to a game, to visit a Little League field, and take part in America’s pastime.
Scout is guarded. She hides her broken pieces under sass, confidence and bravado. Determined to prove herself as a woman in a male-dominated field, she takes no prisoners. Easton is cocky, confident and a bit jaded. He’s recovering from a nasty injury and wants the best of the best. The chemistry between these two is fiery, the push-pull between them magnetic and amazing. I loved their witty banter. I was definitely grinning a lot in this book. But it wasn’t all fun and games. There were some definite feels as well. The characters are beautifully written, wonderfully developed and complex. The secondary characters are just as great, adding additional depth to the story.
There is a lot in this book—a little bit of drama, a lot of feels, some humor and a whole lot of heart. Neither Scout nor Easton are who I expected them to be when I first started, as each page turned, I learned more. I don’t want to reveal too much. It’s definitely one of those books that you have to read and experience for yourself. I thought I was getting a typical sports romance but got so much more. I should have known not to expect anything normal from Bromberg. I cannot wait to see what happens next. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
We got the pleasure of asking K. Bromberg three questions. Here are her responses.
If you could have dinner with 3 people, past or present, who would it be and why?
3 people: Oprah Winfrey, my grandmother who I don’t remember but I guess I look and am just like, and … Nora Roberts.
If you could spend the day with a character from one of your books who would it be and what would you do?
Colton. We’d talk. I’d ask him if he liked how I portrayed his life.
What character in your books would you be least likely to get along with? Why?
Least likely… Santiago in The Player. You’ll have to read to find out why.
