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!

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 the 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 side in the club’s best interest if 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?
