Rating: ★★★★

The Player and The Catch are a duet romance series featuring a hot shot baseball player who badly injures his shoulder and the physical therapist assigned to get him back on the field.

I’m a big fan of sports romance books so this one hit the spot with its engaging characters and interesting story and plot lines.

Considering this is a two-part book, there was ample time to really get to know our two main characters: Scout and Easton.

The Player starts off with a hilarious introduction for these two.

A slight misunderstanding mixed with his teammate’s love of pranks led to some fun banter between Easton and Scout before things were cleared up.

Yes, a woman can work in the male-dominated, pro sports world. She’s not a lady who takes her clothes off for money!

While both Easton and Scout have important career goals they are desperate to meet, they clearly have no issue with mixing business with pleasure.

I was actually kind of surprised how quickly and easily they jump into a fling without much concern about the professional ramifications of their tryst.

They didn’t even seem too concerned about being seen together in public which I found somewhat hard to believe but that never became an issue.

I expected Scout especially to have more concerns about blurring the lines between them, but she didn’t.

Instead, the story line focused more on the “will he or won’t he” be able to return to baseball given his injury.

Easton was an interesting character because he was the son of a famous professional ball player and even though he was phenomenal in his own right, he had expectations to live up to and heavy burdens he carried on his shoulders.

The story, especially into The Catch, really becomes focused on him, his family, his injury and the fallout that follows after it.

Sure Scout has her own side story with her father but I found that less compelling. She was sort of a hard one for me to peg.

Was she a strong woman who was trying to make it in a male-dominated world, or was she just following Daddy’s orders?

She could hold her own in the locker room, but she became more of a supportive character to the Easton show as the story unfolded.

In addition to this being a great sports romance from all angles (player relations, injuries, rehab, owner issues, contract negotiations, etc) there was an interesting suspense angle that plays out as you get into book 2.

I sort of saw one of the storylines coming but a second one I hadn’t seen coming at all which gave Easton an even greater story arch.

With this story spanning two books, I will say that Bromberg kept me engaged the entire time.

Her story pacing was great and kept me reading until the very end.

I’m always a sucker for a sports romance and this one is a keeper.
