Publisher's Summary

I may have moved from Texas to Colorado, but my reputation followed me - right along with my furniture. Everyone knows...I'm a player. Since I'm one of the billionaire Walker brothers, most of the world knows what I am. It's not like I ever tried to hide it. I never cared about what other people thought about me. I lived to party...or I did until I realized what I really wanted to do with my life. Now, I'm having one hell of a time convincing Paige Rutledge, our new attorney in the legal department at Walker Enterprises, that I'm more than willing to settle for just one woman in my bed, as long as that female is her. Unfortunately, she's not buying it, but I'm not giving up. There's never been a woman I couldn't charm into bed if I wanted to. Problem is, I've never wanted one quite this badly, and the more I get to know her, the higher the stakes are for me. Luckily, I'm a gambling kind of guy. Paige is uptight, driven, and totally hiding something. I want to find out her secrets, but when I do, they are nothing like I imagined. She confuses everything for me, but with her, I'm finding out that maybe I actually don't mind if things get complicated. What's a guy to do when one female turns my life upside down from the moment I meet her? I have no idea what other men might do, but I'm determined to get what I want, and I'm not opposed to doing anything to achieve my objective. Paige is mine, she just doesn't realize it yet....

A SIMPLE TALE OF STRENGTH & LOVE

Sebastian Walker had been a party going Player after his parents died but, for the past year, he's turned his life around and his sole focus had been entirely taken up with working at Walker Industries developing alternative and sustainable energy sources. His mind wasn't at all focussed on women.. but one elevator ride changed everything because he had an instant overwhelming reaction when he saw and smelt the aloof stranger who he was pressed next to. But his good looks, charm and panty-melting smile had absolutely no impact on the beautiful woman who stiffly told him to move away. And just like that Sebastian was hooked, his interests grew and his fate was set.. but she was going to give him a challenging ride.

Paige knew exactly who was standing next to her in the lift on the first day at her job but, due to a traumatic event in her past, she had closed her emotions off and focussed entirely on her career. She also knew of Sebastian's partying player ways and she had been there done that and got the emotional scars that went with dangerous rich men.. but the more she got to know the real man behind all the headlines the more she liked what she saw. Then one night Paige came face to face with the monster from her past and Paige had no alternative but to open up and let Sebastian in.. into her well kept secrets, into her body.. and eventually into her heart.

This was very much a relationship focussed dual POV story as the instant chemistry was fought against initially by Paige.. but luckily Sebastian went after what he wanted and never backed down from a challenge.. and there would be challenges. These two characters didn't do stupid things, didn't cause unnecessary dramas and didn't stray so theirs was a tender respectful growing together romance that solidified and reached an unbreakable love. There was character growth, good sex scenes, humor, passion, characters from the previous book and also some emotional angst when the past came back to dig up memories.. SPOILER: memories that may be a trigger for some listeners of being drugged and raped. J. S. Scott has written a tender well paced love story and she always uses the voice of Elizabeth Powers to tell her stories who I like so, if it ain't broke....!

Worth a credit? Yes, even if I did waiver between a 4 or 5 star rating, this was still a very enjoyable listen as the swoon-worthy hero showed the heroine how to open up, feel again and let emotions and people back into her once solitary life. But I don't think much to the cover.

Out of the ashes of heartache, comes love ...

When your world falls apart, it's your heart that points you in the right direction.  Many times I have heard it said "you can't judge a book by it's cover, Player proves those words right.  Scott uses her talent to enlighten, inspire and surprise. Sebastian and Paige have a depth that  goes way beyond attraction.  Both are running away from painful memories, hoping to survive the fallout.  Sebastian is the Walker brother that everybody tends to underestimate. The party boy has matured and is working to live down his past. Paige is a woman with a secret in her past that has shaped her present.  Neither Paige nor Sebastian are what they seem. For out of the ashes of heartache, comes a love worth fighting for.

Player!

Loved this one! Crazy when you meet your soul mate in the elevator at work and they literally blow you off. Sebastian meets the newest junior lawyer on her first day at work and he is intrigued. Paige graduated from Harvard and came to work at Walker, not her dream job, but far away from the East coast. These two were made for each other and this reformed player does a great job healing Paige and the emotional scars she has. Great addition to this series!

Great Read

Player! (The Walker Brothers, #2) was another great read by J.S. Scott. Sebastian is a Walker brother who had left a life of partying to help his brother with the family business. He meets Paige, the new attorney in Walker Enterprises legal department. He tries to prove to her that he is ready to put his player days behind him and settle down with one woman. Paige is not willing to be with one of the companies owners and doesn't want to complicate her life anymore than it is. But they can't deny the attraction they have with each other. I loved reading Sebastian and Paige's story and can't wait to read more by J.S. Scott.

Good... but something was missing

So, I really liked Trace and Eva's story, and was excited to Sebastian. While it was a good listen, I feel like there was something missing. I felt like the plot needed to be a little bit more exciting. Regardless, the Walker Brothers are pretty solid characters.

Worth the wait

The narrator wasn't the best but it I still enjoyed listening. I just loved the romance of the story. Looking forward to the next book. I do wish there was more involvement from characters from the other books.
