Plot Summary:

New York Times bestseller Claire Contreras brings you a sexy new standalone…

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.

My thoughts:

(I listened to the Audible version of the book)

I enjoyed this book so much that I may actually start to watch soccer/football now! I loved how the relationship developed between the two main characters - it was definitely not insta-love. Camila might be one of my favorite female characters to date: she was smart, strong yet shy, and honest with herself and others. One of the best aspects of the developing relationship between Camila and her football playing STUD (Warren is SO SO HOT), is that they both communicate their feelings and intentions very well - though there are some aspects where openness is lacking which is a huge (and enjoyable) plot point. 


Plot: 4/5

Writing Style: 4/5
Overall Rating: 4/5

Final Thoughts:

The Player sort of confirmed the fact that Sports Romances might be my favorite niche genre. I can't seem to get enough of Alpha athletes and their love lives! This was my first Claire Contreras book, but it won't be my last. I also really enjoyed the authentic feel of her description of life in New York City as well as the different cultures that she touched upon. It made the story very well- rounded and multidimensional.
