Book Review – The Catch (The Player, #2) by K. Bromberg

 

 

This duet is a grand slam!

 

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.

It’s official!! This duet is a grand slam! K. Bromberg has now been elevated to my list of go-to authors. I was beyond entertained! The Catch packs an emotional punch that came out of nowhere.

Here’s the breakdown: Following the huge shock at the end of book 1, Easton and Scout are left adrift. He’s struggling with the events that occurred and she struggles with his response to her.

My thoughts: My heart broke, I cried, I laughed, and I most certainly swooned. Easton’s story in the finale is so emotional. It’s the same with Scout, but the vulnerable alpha is like my kryptonite.

This duet resonated with me on several levels. Again, it’s emotional and sexy, but it was down-right heart-wrenching in places. It’s real life personified. Yes, it’s entertaining, but it’s more than that. It reads like an experience. I felt like I went through all the ups and downs with Easton and Scout. Relatable, that’s the word. Particularly the scenes between Easton and Scout.

I’m so invested in these characters. It feels like I just walked away from two of my good friends.

Kudos to K. Bromberg for knocking another one out of the park! She totally got me with the powerful dedication in book 1 and backed it up with this beautiful finale! The only slight detraction I have with this one was the angst. I’m certainly not opposed to it, but it was more than I anticipated.

Overall, I really enjoyed The Player Duet and highly recommend it.
