The Baller by Vi Keeland

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets.
No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera.
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players.
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.
I’d date an athlete.
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.
You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right?
Let’s face it. It never is.
There’s a story betwe

3.5 out of 5 stars

I really enjoyed Brody and Delilah coming together and all they went through. It was sexy, sweet, and more emotional than I thought it would be. It started out strong with really good animosity, flirting, and fun between Brody and Delilah. We learn some things from their background and I was excited to read.

And then - bam! There was a major shift and I felt it gave the second half a different feel from the first but it was really good as well. There was a nice bit of angst, mild drama, and lots of emotion happening. It's really hard to say more without spoiling anything. I will admit I had a hard time getting into it at first after the shift but by the end I enjoyed the journey it took Delilah and Brody on.

I liked the writing. It gave me enough that I was interested but it wasn't super in depth or overly detailed. I thought it moved along well, all be it a little fast paced. There was an interesting POV exchange happening. Loved every snippet I could get of Brody, he was so sweet. I will say that the POV's change a bit with the shift, adding an extra one, by the end I thought it wrapped up too quickly, uneventfully, and felt like there wasn't enough closure there.

I thought the overall storyline was great. I liked the characters and how their relationship evolved. I was hooked and wanted my HEA! Loved the ending and epilogue. Really emotional but it made me happy. Really good read!

Complimentary copy received for honest review.

Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!

    1. It's was one of those, "I liked it... but" reads, at least for me. It was my first book by this author. I'd read her again for sure, a friend recommended Cocky (which she is a co-author with) and Worth the Fight.
