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’m a huge lover of sports romance stories, especially ones like K. Bromberg’s The Player; Bromberg’s newest release has a story line that incorporates the perfect blend of steam, drama, and baseball, and her main characters, Easton and Scout, are multidimensional, allowing readers to truly understand the reasons behind their actions and what’s at stake for their personal as well as their professional lives.
Easton Wylder may be a cocksure ball player, but there’s more to him than just his catching and batting skills, and when Scout Dalton enters his life, those other attributes are exactly what make her fall for him, realizing that not only is Easton a god on the field but he’s everything she never knew she needed, and for once in her life, she’s more afraid to leave him than to risk her heart being broken yet again.
It took me a bit to completely warm up to Scout, but that’s only because she held everything so close to the vest, not allowing her fears, her emotions, or her true feelings to come out until she was ready. Once she got a handle on everything and recognized what she was building with Easton even if she knew it was unprofessional, it was almost like she felt freer to be who she truly is and Easton is partly responsible for easing her mind and her heart.
K. Bromberg creates the absolute best setting for Easton and Scout’s story; both of them love the game of baseball and because of the sport’s importance in their lives, the game becomes a pivotal character – one that holds both of their futures in its hands.
It’s made clear throughout The Player that K. Bromberg took the time to do her baseball research, and in understanding what it takes to play professional ball as well as the business aspects of the game, she presents readers with a complex knowledge of America’s favorite pastime and allows them to see why it’s so much more than a game to Easton and the Austin Aces.
K. Bromberg hits one hell of a homerun with The Player, and even though the story ends with a cliffhanger, it’s the perfect starting point for book two because everything Easton and Scout have worked for rests upon a team and a sport that seems to be more about business than anything else, which means readers will have to wait to see what the last pitch in the last inning means for both Easton and Scout.
