Description

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 regard 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?

  • Cliff HANGER-Beware

    Good story, but I was not expecting the story to end on a cliff hanger! I followed the characters and enjoyed their story, but was caught completely unaware when I flipped the last page to see "The End." and the next story doesn't come out until the end of JUNE!!! Start this story at your own risk. Be prepared to fall in love with the characters and to not know what's going to happen to them for a couple of MONTHS!

  • K. Bromberg hits a HOMERUN with The Player

    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. 5 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

    K Bromberg once again had given us another 5 star read with The Player!!! Enter Easton Wylder, the star baseball player for the Ace's, whose love of the game has been the only constant in his life, that is until an unfortunate injury sidelines him during the season!! The famous Doc Dalton, one of the most respected physical therapists in the game is to under take Easton's rehabbing, or so he thinks!!! Scout Dalton is the daughter of Doc, a therapist herself working under the guidance of her father for years, she knows she got what it takes to get this ball player fit and ready to be back in the line up. They have a rocky start at their first session, especially since Easton doesn't believe she's his actual therapist, but that matter is put to rest when the feisty brunette let's him know EXACTLY who she is!!! What follows is a heartwarming and emotionally gripping story of two people, who are insanely attracted to each other, but trying not to step over the professional line of their jobs. Their relationship has to battle some bumps in the road, and outside influences, and their trust in one another put to the test!!! I absolutely fell in love with Easton and Scout's story, and Bromberg has once again proven she is a master at writing these captivating stories, that keep you on the edge of your seat, but wanting MORE!!!! (less)

    The Player was enticing, bold, and 100% addicting! I love a good sports romance. But make it a baseball romance, and I'm a goner! The passion, dedication, and hard work leaped off the pages and immediately consumed my heart. Austin Aces catcher, Easton Wylder, has known little else besides the game his entire life. So when a dirty play-inducing injury sidelines the baseball star, he'll do whatever it takes to prove his career isn't over. Physical therapist, Scout Dalton, has the opportunity to do what her famous doctor/father has never done...secure a contract with the Austin Aces. And all it takes is to get Easton back on the field, but in a strict time limit. Scout's brought in to do her job. But when her job involves the sexy and cocky enigma that is Easton, she's found having a hard heart towards the player will be her most difficult task yet. The Player fully annihilates your perception of other sports romances! Not just a story about the hot player who gets the girl, but an emotional story about the fear of losing those you love, the doubt and insecurity of a life without passion, and the joy of realizing what love truly means. Easton and Scout's dynamic was perfectly unique in the story, but not without it's flaws or setbacks. Both needed something from the other. But what they weren't expecting was an utterly profound connection to one another that neither knew they were missing. The courage it takes to let someone in, and the apprehension to trust one's true intentions, showcases the strong emotions and concerns real life exhibits. K. Bromberg has quickly become an instant must-read author for me. Her expressive and fierce writing is brilliantly displayed in The Player. This book challenges your emotions, and inhabits the reader's ability to see beyond what they think they know, and rely on what they feel instead. The Player was simply suberb! And that ending? Goodness gracious....I need the next one NOW! 5 fanatic stars!

    O.M.G!! I was gifted a copy of this book to read/review and that's the first thing that comes to mind! This is my honest opinion and I was not given any incentives for doing so. I didn't know whether to throw my kindle, cry, or swoon - maybe a little bit of all the above. Mrs. Bromberg has hit a homerun with this book! My review may be a little impartial since I love baseball, but it's just that good. While it does touch a little bit on the sport itself, there is a romance story like none other that I've read. About 20% in, I knew there was going to be heartbreak of some kind. At 50%, the sparks were flying. Around 75%, the tears were falling and I was holding my breath waiting for the strike to be called. But then I was put back together and I didn't want this story to end. Easton and Scout came to life on each page, with every word. It's lust and swoon worthy, it's heavy and sweet, light and sexy, funny and heartbreaking. The blurb is pretty spot on so I won't give anything else away, just be prepared to spend an entire day falling in love with Mr. Hot Shot and Ms. Kitty.
