Publisher's Summary

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.

OK romance, but a cliffhanger

This is one of my pet irritations. a book that is incomplete unless you buy the rest of the story. This story is incomplete without also listening to The Player.

5 The Catch Stars

I am left with a full heart after this book.

I said it before I am not a fan of cliffy’s and well that still holds true but… wow these books were phenomenal I can forgive the cliffy. ;)

Easton really surprised me in this book, because I felt in the first book he held back so much. With this book he let it all hang out, sure he took time for himself when needed and I can’t fault the guy for that he had to work through things on his own before he could let Scout in.

Phew and Scout she was awesome she let Easton have the time he needed and she would seek him out when she knew he needed that too. She really goes through a lot in this book more so because of the health issue her father was having. You see her struggle and I liked that Easton was there for her when she needed him. Very much liked that she was there for Easton without judgment that was a surprise to me and it made me like her all the more for it.

What a great end to a two book series, it tied everything up but still left us with so much to think about. A full heart.

Total fan of the narration too both Andi and Joe have that special something that brings this book to life in our ears. I can’t think of a better duo to have done this book justice.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Predictable

The overall story was good. It just took long to get the point a fee of the times. I do want to do any spoliers but there were a few times when I was thinking... come obviously this is what is happening.... get to the point.

One of my new favorites

I listened to “The Player” and The Catch” back to back. I cannot imagine not having the second book ready to go. I think I would have hated “The Player” as a stand alone book because the end was torture. Even the beginning of “The Catch” was tough, but so worth it!!
I highly recommend these books!

Don’t judge a man until...

... until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins. That’s the moral I took from this story.

Right up until the moment Easton confessed to Scout his huge secret I was angry with his behavior towards her and was referring to him as a “man-child”, and wondering what the hell such a well-put-together woman was seeing in him. Then it all became clear, and I felt like such an @$$hole. I thought he was being a typical alpha male jackass, and then I felt like the jackass.

This was a good story, made so much better by such an awesome team of narrators; Andi and Joe are at the pinnacle of their profession.

It was more than a romance; but the love scenes were really hot, too. I’ve noticed now that Kristi writes a kind of physical and emotional intimacy that makes me cry and want what she describes for myself, an incredible level of articulate closeness that just blows the mind and wrecks the heart. I find it easy to empathize with what the lovers are feeling and saying to each other, the way she writes it.

The only reason I didn’t give the story part of this 5 stars is because I’m trying to save my 5-star ratings for things like War & Peace or Dune.

Becoming a fan of Joe Arden's narration

So, as you might remember from my review, The Player left off on a big cliffhanger. So when I started this one, I was ready to find out exactly what had happened. And at first, I was a bit confused based on what was happening. But let me tell you what, Bromberg's writing must have a direct connection to my tear ducts, because her books always make me cry! And this one was no exception. I totally understood why Easton was upset on the one hand, but I don't think it makes sense for him to blame Scout the way he did, because it makes no sense that she would do something that also made her lose her chance at getting the contract for her dad's practice if she was doing what Easton thought she was doing. And then of course there is the secret that Easton has, and when we find it out, it is somewhat along the lines of what I'd thought. When Easton finally realizes that what Scout did was her trying to make the best decision she could at the drop of a hat with no support from him or his agent, I liked how it happened. I feel like that was a pretty realistic way of handling it all.

When Easton got drunk, he was so cute. I loved that part. And it seemed as if all of it was resolved so quickly, and I knew there would be more. Of course there was with his secret. But not just that, I knew the part about Santiago had been alluded to over and over throughout the first book and this one as well, so I was not shocked when my hunches were proven to be correct. And with that situation, I am so glad that Easton didn't get drawn into the whole thing of thinking that Scout was lying to him about that, when she wasn't at all, I feel like that was so much more realistic than how it is normally turned into big drama for a similar thing in other stories.

Again, I loved this book. Made me so ready for baseball season here in Kansas City, even though after losing my favorite, Eric Hosmer, it seems like we may be back to the less successful Royals team I grew up with most of my life. I'm pretty sure I'll read any and everything that Bromberg writes, and you should pick her books up too! Also, I love Andi Arndt's narrating, she pretty much will make me listen to anything. And I'm beginning to become quite the fan of Joe Arden as well.

Betrayal! Agony! Aaaahhhhh.....but love too!

I sometimes wonder how much an author can throw at their characters. ....... this story does not disappoint. Two delightful characters struggling to swim through all that life can throw at them but ultimately showing that love wins every time.

Perfect performances from Andi Arndt and Joe Arden top off this tale which is well worth the credit.

Warning - book 1 has a serious cliffhanger, so make sure you have this one on hand before you start listening to The Player

Home run

I love to listen to a variety of stories. Though I'm not a fan of baseball, I'm a huge fan of this book. It was well written, dare I say even poetic at times. A great mix of heart, heat, and humor. The voice actors did a phenomenal job of bringing such an engaging story to life.

In my eyes better than book 1

Book 2 in the Player duo and my heart goes out for Easton Wylder. If I hadn't have fallen in love with him in The Player, I'd definitely be head over heals in love with him after reading The Catch. The Catch answers all the questions I didn't realise I had from the previous book, it put the whole story in perspective for me and also added a little angst and challenge to the chemistry emitted by Easton and Scout. Covering some sensitive issues that had me snivelling quietly into my hankie, K Bromberg has given me everything I felt was missing in book 1, and I finished the book with a smile on my face, happy that I decided to finish the duet (I was in two minds after the first book, which yes, I thought was good, but I needed to feel more, book 2 gave me that feeling, you know the one, where is this book going and why can't I stop reading). Again told in dual POV with wonderful characters, an excellent story, lovely writing and lots of passion. This book cannot be read as a standalone, book 1, The Player should be read first. Perfect narration. I love these guys.

Great end to the story

This duet was a lovely slow burn, with real characters and believable drama. Narration was great and I listened to this one in two days. After a string of bad books this was such a relief to have this one released
