ARC Review: The Player by K. Bromberg
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?
New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.
A mom of three, she plots her novels in between school runs and soccer practices, more often than not with her laptop in tow.
Since publishing her first book in 2013, K. has sold over one million copies of her books and has landed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists over twenty-five times.
In April, she’ll release The Player, the first in a two-book sports romance series (The Catch, book 2, will be released late June), with many more already outlined and ready to be written.

I have to start off by saying I’m not a sports person whatsoever, but I do very much enjoy Ms. Bromberg’s writing. So I went way outside my comfort zone with The Player.
Easton is as cocky as he is talented. A superstar baseball player who is charming, very sexy and confident. Under the famous exterior, is a kind and caring man who know what he wants and is not afraid to go after it. The truly has a heart of gold. Suffering an injury that could stop his career, Easton promises to defy the odds and get back on top of the game.
Scout is feisty to say the least. I liked her. She’s proud woman and good at what she does. And like all good women, Scout is a bit stubborn too. She is also a women with secrets. Secrets she keeps along with her heart bottled to herself. However Scout is a no nonsense, stand her ground and go after what she wants kind of woman.
Ms. Bromberg has just done what I call the impossible. I enjoyed a sports romance. Even if she did leave the readers on edge with a cliffhanger ending. Her writing is masterful and intriguing. The attention to detail is amazing. The characters are deep, well developed and relatable. The plot is delicately balanced with just enough drama, romance and comical moments. I really enjoyed how the “little things” stood out.
Scout and Easton are fun together and good for each other. The passion, attraction and banter between the two put a big smile on this reader’s face. The chemistry they created is to the point of combustion. The Player is a super hot and fun read with some deep emotions at play!
Readers note: Being a non sports fan, I want to give Ms. Bromberg some major props on The Player. I didn’t feel overwhelmed with baseball. Yes it was part of the story but not the whole of the story. A truly excellent balance.
