Standalone Sports romance

10th

SYNOPSIS

I’m naturally gifted on the field and between the sheets. With flashy cars and enough media attention to put the Royal Family to shame, I’m the definition of Most Eligible Bachelor.

I’ve never met a man who doesn’t want to be me or a woman who doesn’t want to tame me. Until I meet Camila.

From the moment I lay eyes on her, I know I have to have her.

She wants to keep me at arm’s length.
I want her naked in my bed.

She thinks our worlds are too different.
All I want her to think about is screaming my name.

She says I’m bad news.

I have three weeks to prove her wrong.

Reviewed by Gitte & Jenny

“I’d give up my career to chase moments with the right woman.”

The Player was an entertaining, sexy and romantic read with a hot footie player and a strong down to earth heroine. We loved how we saw both sides of the socio economic divide and the realities that come with it as well as the effects it has on people and actions.

In terms of what we seek out of sports romances we didn’t really get the excitement or the thrill of the sport aspect nor the authenticity of the game. Despite this, however, we read The Player in one sitting and were caught up in ‘the chase’ and consequent addictive romance of Warren and Camila.

‘He was untamed perfection. That was what every inch of him screamed. And I was not about to be the one trying to tame him.’

Warren has grown up in quite a unique family setting and is now playing for Man Utd, He’s incredibly gorgeous and a blinding footie player, commanding the pitch and living the dream. Despite him being an American we really did feel his international demeanour and ‘flavour’ but we never felt that British factor of the story even though he was based in the UK.  He has his finger in a lot of pies and shows himself to be not only an accomplished sports man but also a savvy business man. The latter being the starting of a beautiful yet at times fraught relationship with the beautiful Camila.

Warren’s not got an easy ride in getting what he wants though, as Camila has a strong head on her shoulders and does not suffer fools gladly. She is definitely no WAG! It takes a lot for her to let someone in and to take a chance on the unknown. The building drama and angst added to the story and there were a few moments where we went back and forth discussing the antics and actions of our couple.

“Life is short. We’re only here to chase moments. I’d rather make those moments worthwhile.”

We loved getting inside the head of both characters in this dual POV which definitely enhanced the story for us. The Player was a fabulous well written romantic indulgence, what we call an easy satisfying read that warms your heart and sets your pulse racing. For that, we definitely recommend this standalone read.

‘She wasn’t my New York girl. She was my game changer.’
