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?
The Player from K. Bromberg is the first book in a duet that I have been anxiously awaiting. Because… KB and BASEBALL!!
This is the story of Easton (perfect baseball name, btw) and Scout who are both living in the shadows of their dads. Easton is an uber talented ball player and Scout is the therapist assigned to him and his team. Rather predictably, Easton is injured and Scout is the one who has to rehab him back into shape within a certain amount of time for Easton to be able to play again. If you have never encountered physical therapy or physical rehab before, its extremely hands on. Touching, rubbing, two people all over each other. Very close and lots of skin-to-skin contact. Nice 😉
What was not predictable was the characters themselves. I loved both of them, probably equally, and thats unusual.. but in The Player, Easton was the one who was never questioning, never wavering. He was laser focused and intense. Maybe thats the athlete in him? But it was sexy AF. Scout was tough, feisty but still vulnerable. I loved that about her. It was like she was sitting on go, ready to run at any moment.
The book had just enough emotion to keep my feelings tied up and KB certainly packed in the heat with this one! It was great and im definitely looking forward to the second book, The Catch.
