Publisher's Summary

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.

Every man wants to be me, and every woman wants to tame me. Until Camila.

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.

Freaking perfection. Zachary Webber is the hottest soccer player ever!

Yes! Yesssss! This book was damn near perfection. Such a gorgeous sports romance/ friends-to-lovers novel. Claire Contreras gives us angst and conflict, but without all those pesky whiny inner monologues. Warren is amazing! He's sexy, charismatic, possessive and determined. Still, he's got a soft side too and that had me swooning as much as when he was turning up the alpha vibes. Camila is a fantastic female lead. She's strong, driven, and vibrant. She's not easily charmed by Warren and stands her ground, but isn't a complete shrew to accomplish this. Their chemistry and attraction sizzles and and damn near sets fire the pages when Camila finally gives into Warren. Both grow, together and part, throughout their journey in the story and when they finally come together they're even better for it.

I don't know who cast the narration for this audiobook, but they deserve a prize! Why? Two words: that accent! *fans self* Zachary Webber absolutely blew me away. He doesn't sunspot narrate the story, he breathes it into life. From Warren's softer side to his naughty bedside manner he embodies the character flawlessly. Megan Tusing is equally terrific in her narration. From seamlessly switching accents to her male voice, she's utter perfection. This audiobook is not to be missed! All the stars.

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS ONE

Any additional comments?

Really good story. Though I would have liked hotter Nukie scenes I think this one is a keeper. I could listen to this one a few times a year. The narration is also is very very good. I want more books read by Zachary and Megan. You will Enjoy it.

Just plain boring...

Minority, here...

Great narrators, they got the one star.

Other than that, flat story, flat characters, flat scenes, everything flat. It was hard to finish it, it was so boring. I kept peeking at my other books longingly, but my OCD, as always, got the best of me.

Thank God this audiobook was for free, but what about my wasted time??? 😕

Enter at your own risk.

Good story, Cover model is HOT! but I hate....

Good story, Cover model is SMOKING HOT! Books should really give the cover models credit on the jackets because it's their images that get readers to even look at the book before they find out about the writer or story. It's only fair IMHO. But what I hate is whining. Megan Tusing narrating is ok but the constant whining voice is irritating. Zachary was great even as Camilla. Megan does not pull off a tough New Yorker even a little. A New York woman who blushes when gorgeous men at a bar hit on her. When does that ever happen? Maybe for someone who is new to the city but a seasoned New Yorker that Camilla is supposed to be wouldn't have batted an eye and would've had a witty retort faster then an eye-roll so that was totally unbelievable for me.

Camilla was written with the reactions of a teenager. I just didn't buy her a true female lead character. The idea of the story I liked but does the guy always have to be rich? I mean that is becoming so tiresome. I liked the book but it could've been better. Strong female characters are not a turn-off I wish there were more than just in J.D. Robb's In Death series.

Eye Candy on the Cover

I enjoyed this book if for nothing else that gorgeous body on the cover. So with that being said, my mind was very open to the words that lie within. I really liked Camila and Warren's story. Hot famous soccer player chasing the poor do-gooder pretty girl only to find out that their pasts are connected and not in a good way. These two have to find their way to loving each other despite the sins of the fathers. I really like that the reason of life and one's personal happiness wee emotions explored in this romance. Something we can all think about.

Zachary and Megan were amazing capturing the emotions of Camila and Warren but Megan's Warren sounds just a little to feminine. Overall this was an enjoyable listen.

I'll take a famous soccer player with a side of sizzle

Pheeeeeeeew if only stories like this happened in real life :) Warren is everything you want in a man; hot, rich, sweet, and incredibly charming! Camila is your typical strong determined heroine who tries to resist the temptation that is Warren. I really enjoyed this listen. The narrators were PERFECT and there wasn't too much angst. Lots of anticipation, and hoping that he'll get the girl, but not angsty to the point of wanting to slap the heroine like some books! It's the perfect combination of drama, comedy, and romance!!! I definitely recommend

I LOVE Zachary Webber but.....

I am at chapter 16 and still don't know why I'm listening to this book except that it's free and that STILL does NOT entice me to keep listening. Zachary Webber is great... be should be the voice on all GPS devices, but this Player book is seriously BORING. All I know is that he wants to have sex with her and her family is a mystery. Usually I don't mind (too much) the sexual references, but this book came out of the gate with the deisres, wants (of course in other words) and has been there ever since and the funny part is I am not the least bit interested in finding out if he gets her, what he did to her, why he left and why (at least in the beginning) she hates him. If you are going to have narrators pronounce Latin names, please, please, PLEASE have genuine pronunciations!! I just can't believe this is the same guy from Lucky Suit with Andi Arndt, which is one of the most delightful listening I've done in a LONG time. I've also listened to 30 Day Boyfriend, which I was a little disappointed that there was not MORE Zachary, but still enjoyed listening just as I did in Most Valuable Playboy, In the Wind and We Own the Night. "The Player" is a huge disappointment and I JUST CAN'T LISTEN TO IT ANY MORE. Sorry!!

Oh Zachary Webber

I want to listen to Zachary Webber all day, every day!
The story was a fun romance. It certainly pulled at your heart strings and there were a few sad moments. Sometimes I wanted to smack Camilla upside the head, but it was fun seeing both develop. Most importantly, the connection wasn't forced. It was insta-attraction, but not instalove and by the end, you understood why they worked as a couple.

I so wanted to love this book

Ouch! This hurts. I was so looking forward to this book, the hype, the cover, the synopsis and the 5⭐️reviews, all had me literally on the edge of my seat with anticipation. All for nothing. I mean nothing. I mean absolutely nothing. I felt no chemistry between the main characters ( and believe me I wanted to), I felt no compassion towards them, not even a hint of it. The story had so much potential, I loved the whole synopsis (bad boy soccer player meets innocent do gooder, a few hiccups and then all is right with the world). Sports romance is one of my favourite genres and save for the last few chapters that had a little more passion and fire, it would have been a star less.

dragged and it was a struggle to fiinish

1st tome I've read this author and she's definitely not for me.
Zac Webber got my attention as I love his narration (aka Jacob morgan). it was nice and slow and I kept waiting for a twist....so kept listening, to no avail. a lot of chapters with nothing much to say.
if you want a drawn out fluffy story with the occasional choice word in there then this is the one. if you want grit try Meghan March or A. zavarelli...they'll knock ya socks off.
