The Player by K Bromberg
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?
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.

Title: The Player
Author: K Bromberg
K Bromberg's latest book, The Player, was such a treat. I'm not a baseball fan, heck, I live in Canada and our national sport is hockey, but heck, she made me actively curious to know more about those players. To know who they are, how much they truly love the game and especially, to find out what really happens behind closed doors (bad, bad me!!!). it's no surprise that Easton and Scout's relationship had me hooked from the very beginning. It's truly hard not to be caught when you have the baseball player mistake his physical therapist for a hooker! And of course, Scout knows how to take it as much as she can dish it, especially having had grown up with her father and the many other teams he rehabilitated. She's trying to fulfill her father's last wishes of getting the contract to Easton's MLB club as soon as she brings him back to the field fully healed after a cheap shot from an opponent months ago... all on a deadline and while attempting to keep the professional distance as their attraction gets stronger.
This is the kind of romance that you can't help but wonder who will come out the winner: the players, the contract, the professionalism or the last wishes of a man who only wants the best for his daughter. Scout has so many secrets that they sometimes get in the way, and yet, i get it too. Secrets are information that can't be used against you in anger, but when it comes to Easton, one things i noticed is that you can't judge a book by its cover. He's different than what i would have thought - thoughtful, spirited, loving and so very involved in the things he loves from his charity to the people he loves and when he finds it in himself, his sport. Together they were perfect, even with all the broken parts of each other. Baseball may not be a sport that i love, and most times i can't even find the time to watch a game since i can't understand it more often than not, but K Bromberg absolutely opened my eyes on why it's thrilling and oh so very addicting... i can't wait to read the next instalment of The Player series.
