How steamy is it? Hot Damn

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.*

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.

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.

Love ❤️ the book

I loved the story line and narration...the quirks, the heartfelt story line, the significance of family, the triumph and tribulations of life and most of all relating to how much faith and love can really make or break lives.

Loved it!!!⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️

This was really a great series. Andi Arndt is such a great narrator. And I wanted more of Joe Arden. Good baseball romance and interesting characters with an unexpected twist. I wont ruin it too much but that's why Santiago hated our hero. Definite daddy issues in this series!!! But I enjoyed these books immensely. Great writing and narrators.

So Good!

Even though I loved the first book, THIS book was better. I had a full range of emotions I didn’t expect, and the author yanked each one out against my will. You won’t be disappointed!

The narration was amazing like always. I look specifically for books with Andi Arndt and Joe Arden.

Overall, I enjoyed both books and couldn’t put them down!

The Player and the Catch Must Must Read

These two books exceeded my expectation. Bromberg has a way with a story to pull you in and keep you there with Scout and Easton in a true love story of real life. Keep it up and bring me more.
Thank you

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
