After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.
Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.
But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.
With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.
He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.
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?
It’s official!! This duet is a grand slam! K. Bromberg has now been elevated to my list of go-to authors. I was beyond entertained! The Catch packs an emotional punch that came out of nowhere.
Here’s the breakdown: Following the huge shock at the end of book 1, Easton and Scout are left adrift. He’s struggling with the events that occurred and she struggles with his response to her.
My thoughts: My heart broke, I cried, I laughed, and I most certainly swooned. Easton’s story in the finale is so emotional. It’s the same with Scout, but the vulnerable alpha is like my kryptonite.
This duet resonated with me on several levels. Again, it’s emotional and sexy, but it was down-right heart-wrenching in place. It’s real life personified. Yes, it’s entertaining, but it’s more than that. It reads like an experience. I felt like I went through all the ups and downs with Easton and Scout. Relatable, that’s the word. Particularly the scenes between Easton and Scout.
I’m so invested in these characters. It feels like I just walked away from two of my good friends.
Kudos to K. Bromberg for knocking another one out of the park! She totally got me with the powerful dedication in book 1 and backed it up with this beautiful finale! The only slight detraction I have with this one was the angst. I’m certainly not opposed to it, but it was more than I anticipated.
Overall, I really enjoyed The Player Duet and highly recommend it.
