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?
4.5 ‘Have a day’ Stars!

Can we just take a moment to say how amazing K. Bromberg is? Because this woman kills it to the max every single time she releases anything! Now, we all know how good she is at sports romance (I mean.. Colton!) and this time she did a fantastic job with this sexy, emotional and funny baseball story.
The Player is the first installment in this duet and it tells the love story between a cocky (and swoony!) baseball player and his sassy (and a bit broken) doctor. Easton needs to recover from an injury and Scout is the woman for the job. I am sure you can imagine what happens next: the sparks start flying.
He isn’t just another player.
He’s the player who can give me what I need to fulfill my dad’s wishes.
And he’s the man who has invaded my thoughts and taken residence there.
I love stories that have a little bit of everything in them and The Player, obviously, clicked all my buttons on that. It has a great list of characters, a couple with smoking hot chemistry and some fun and dramatic moments that will leave you waiting for more!
The worst part about telling yourself lies is you know the real truth.
And the truth is I want everything I just tried to convince myself I didn’t.
Of course, great love stories are not the easiest to read and that’s why this one is so great. Both main characters have some pretty dramatic situations in their lives and it makes The Player a very entertaining and fast read.
“I don’t like to play by the rules. A contract is business, Scout. But this? You. Me? This is pleasure.”
Moreover, what made this book great for me were, of course, the couple. Outstanding and deep characters that give you all the butterflies? Heck yes! The chemistry between Easton and Scout is absolutely amazing (in and out of the bedroom!) and you’ll definitely want more (especially after that freakin’ cliffhanger at the end!!!).
I taste me.
I taste her.
The two of them together are a drug I can’t get enough of.
I need more.
I want more.
I’m going to take more.
Therefore, my rating for The Player is 4.5 STARS because I literally cannot wait to read the conclusion of this love story! As you can see, I don’t deal well with the damn cliffies so I need The Catch yesterday! lol Highly recommend this one, for sure!
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.
She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.
On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled). She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out November 14th.
Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (2 books: The Player, The Catch) and the Everyday Heroes series (3 books: Cuffed, Combust, and Cockpit). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
