Description

From New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.  
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.  
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. 
No.  The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question.  On camera.  
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players. 
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.  
I’d date an athlete.  
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.  
You know the type.  Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right?
Let’s face it.  It never is.
There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… 
And this one is ours.

Author's note - The Baller is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

    Brody was known for being a player. In more ways than one. When he met Delilah in the locker room, he horrified and excited her at the same time. Keeping her interest when she is trying to stay professional, is a whole new game. Delilah has to be taken seriously. In an almost exclusively male career, she wants to just be known for her own merits. When the hottest man in tight pants (or out of them) puts the moves on her, she finds herself wanting to say, "yes." This was an amazingly hot read. I loved these characters. I found them profoundly honest and it was refreshing. The heat level in this story was also turned up. Was a perfect summer read.

    I am new to Vi's books but after reading Egomaniac and The Baller I have become a big fan! Brody is the perfect drool worthy alpha male with a tender side. He has been through hell with a previous relationship so he is guarded about beginning a new relationship with Delilah. Delilah has relationship issues of her own. This is a very tender love story, with some hot sex thrown in, of these two working their way to each other. Such a good story so well written. Please read.

    This was a a good read. It was the kind of read where I was sad to see myself reach the end of the pages. If it were a series I'd buy them all. The only thing I would mention constructively was there were a lot of things in the book that were told and not shown which left me feeling the plot was a little shallow. For instance, we were told about all the things she did for Easton to love her but weren't really shown her allure through his eyes...

    I absolutely loved this book. I laughed out loud but I also was on the edge of my seat near the end. I didn't know what to expect when history made itself present. But the blatant dominance that Brody showed... How could you not adore him?! He's sweet & strong all in one bundle. & of course it's not a good book if there aren't twists in there! Well done

    Delilah, a newly appointed sports journalist meets Brody, the star quarterback of the Steel, in the locker room and the fun begins. I totally enjoyed the sexy banter between Brody and Delilah. Their relationship grows steadily and they seem to really enjoy each other. Little insecurities and jealousies creep up on Delilah but, she manages to deflect them. Brody's relationship with Marlene, the woman who is like a mother to him, is so sweet and heartwarming. I love how he interacts with Grouper and the nurses at the nursing home. He is so much fun with them that it seems to help with the realities of aging. The return of Willow is a struggle for Delilah to deal with. Willow is Brody's first love and she is back in his life. Delilah's first love died in an accident several years earlier and Willow's re-appearance triggers some deep emotions. Brody and Delilah's story is a great read!
