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?
Stephanie’s 4 Star Review:
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Even if you’re not a baseball fan there’s enough romance in this story to overcome the game. HA! I don’t like watching baseball, but reading about hot players is a whole other story. 🙂
So Easton Wylder is injured. He has to have physical therapy in order to be allowed to play again – says his contract and the new GM for the team. Cute Scout Datlton. She’s his new therapist. Their beginning is very typical of what you’d think a player’s prankster friends would put together. However Scout just uses it as ammunition to assume Easton is like every other players she’s met and interacted with.
Now he’s on a mission. Proving her wrong that he’s not the one who hurt her. He’s more than the summation of his previous sexcapades. Good luck, dude. HA! So he sets out to get her to really see him. She continues to hide.
Major secret she’s holding onto – that could cost her a major contract as well as her career. She has to remember keep a clear mind and hard heart. It’s her daddy’s mantra. Clear Mind. Hard Heart. Then she can’t get played. She won’t be hurt. She’ll stay on course and get the one thing her daddy always wanted…
I’ve only met one person in life that allowed their parent to dictate what they were going to do with their life. I can’t imagine not standing up for what *I* wanted. Isn’t that the whole point of free will? Not that I think Scout couldn’t choose to do something for herself – she just loved her daddy so much she didn’t want to be a disappointment. Gosh, can you imagine the pressure?!
Then you have Easton’s dad – where Easton can never do anything right. No matter how many wins he has. His dad always pushes him to do better. Someone break the cycle already!
If you like to read romances where the characters are trying to find their footing amongst finding their parents dreams – The Player is definitely one you have to read.
