The Player by K. Bromberg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Who was the dummy who went into this book thinking it was a standalone???
baseball. As the son of baseball royalty, the game was everything to him. So when he got severely injured, the team sent in the best physical therapist in the field, Doc Dalton. However, that's not who Easton got. Instead he was stuck with Doc's daughter, Scout, who was not only sassy, determined and capable, but she was absolutely gorgeous. Scout found that the more time she spent with Easton (and vice versa), the more she got to know the real him, the easier it was to fall for him. Could these two resist the temptation of crossing professional lines? If they stumbled, would they both make it to the other side unscathed?
This book was steamy and sweet with plenty of angst mixed in. Both Easton and Scout were operating under similar issues, burdened by the weight of responsibilities and high expectations. I personally think Easton had to work far too hard to get through Scout's walls and I'm still not sure if he's quite breached them. Regardless, I was thoroughly entertained by his efforts and how he had opened himself up to experience everything with her.
I'm loving where these two seem to be headed and I'm hoping for less of a back-and-forth, push-and-pull effect in the next. Please, let book 2 show these two as a united front! *fingers crossed*
