A STARLET REVIEW: THE BALLER BY VI KEELAND
Synopsis:
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 between once upon a time and happily ever after…

And this one is ours.

A new song had just started, and I was enjoying his company when a voice behind me said, “Can I cut in?”

My head whipped around, even though I had no doubt whom the gravelly voice belonged to.

Michael was gracious. “I hate to share. But I suppose I have been hogging the most beautiful woman at the event.” He let go of my hand and stepped back with a gentlemanly nod. “Thank you for the dance, Delilah.”

Again Brody Easton had caught me off guard. Before I knew it, I was dancing with the arrogant jerk.  He wrapped his arms around me and pulled my body tight against his. Way tighter than Michael had held me.

“Good to see you again, Lois Lane.”

The man had balls; I had to give him that. I looked him straight in the eyes. “Nice to see you with clothes on, Easton.”

“Do you prefer me without?”

“I prefer you on the other side of the room.”

He chuckled. It was a hearty laugh. “That’s what happens sometimes when you decide you want to hang out in the men’s locker room.”

I tried to pull back, but he tightened his grip and held me in place. I craned my neck. “Let go of me.”

“No.”

“No?”

“That’s right. No.”

“I can scream at the top of my lungs.”

“I’d like to hear you scream.” His tone made it clear he meant he wanted me underneath him while I was doing the screaming.

“You’re an asshole. You know that?”

“I do. You asked me that yesterday. For a reporter, you should really try changing up your questions more frequently.”

My eyes bulged.

Easton shifted his hand down to the small of my back before twirling us around the dance floor. Figures the prick can dance.

“Are you seeing anyone?”

“You can’t be serious?”

He ignored my comment. “Would you like to have dinner tonight?”

“We just ate.”

“Dessert at my place, then?”

I couldn’t help but laugh. “Did you hit your head at the game yesterday?”

“On a diet, huh?”

“Yeah. That’s it. I don’t want to go to your place for dessert because I’m on a diet.”

“Well, that’s just a shame.”

My Review

So I can honestly say that I will never again be able to go to Subway and order a “footlong” without a straight face and without thinking dirty, delicious thoughts of Brody Easton. Sigh….I can’t even begin to describe how much I LOVED this entire book! From start to finish, I was completely enraptured with Brody, Delilah and their tumultuous, sexy, hysterical story. It’s been a LONG time since a book grabbed me right in Chapter 1 and didn’t let go until the perfect epi. This one was definitely a can’t put down and let the kids fend dinner for themselves kind of book! Oh and I can’t forget to mention that cover…holy UPS can you deliver that “package” to my doorstep please! Miss Sommer Stein outdid herself on this one ;)

The Baller is the story of Brody Easton, starting quarterback for the New York Steel football team and the star of every ladies’ dirty dreams. Brody has a reputation as a player and did I mention his rumored “footlong”??? Not only is he deliciously delectable, but he is also sweet, funny and practically perfect on all counts.

Delilah Maddox is the up and coming sports journalist whom has been assigned to cover Brody and The Steel. You just know it’s going to be good when their first meeting is in the Steel locker room, post shower and Brody drops his towel! Of course, Delilah isn’t just some pretty bimbo that doesn’t know her stuff. She knows more about football than most NFL head coaches. As a result, they don’t exactly start off on the right foot and it only escalates from there. Brody, however, is instantly attracted to Delilah and wants to initiate her into the Brody Easton Banging Hall of Fame, but Delilah wants no part of it. She has herself currently off the market and on a man “cleanse”.

Fortunately for us, Brody and Delilah are thrown together as she follows him around the country to report on The Steel football games. As much as they find themselves attracted to each other, they both have some very serious past relationship baggage that has left them very guarded and emotionally detached. I’m talking some serious, bad stuff. And of course, just as they are working through their issues and starting to drop some walls, Brody’s past comes swooping in with a vengeance and threatens to ruin everything.

Luckily, we still get a good dose of hotness in between the drama. Brody can definitely bring it in the sexy department…

“Then, when you’re good and wet…when you’re soaked for me and I can smell that you want me, I’m going to hold our hands over your head and f*ck you. I won’t be able to go easy the first time. We’ll save that for the morning when the sunlight streams in on your naked body, and I can watch the way your face changes with every stroke, listen to the way your breath changes as I bury myself deep inside of you.”

Ummm….yes, please!! I seriously could go on and on, but as much I loved the hotness, I ADORED their banter and their “questions”.

“If you could have your pick of any Disney princess, which one would it be?”

“Definitely not Sleeping Beauty. She lies around sleeping all day, waiting for some schmuck in tights to come kiss her. Snow White’s voice would annoy the shit out of me. Plus, I’m six-two and she’s into short guys. I’m not sure I know any other princesses. Wait. No. That chick from Aladdin is hot. Or the Little Mermaid. But can a mermaid spread her legs?”

Could.Not.Love.Him.More. If you haven’t guessed from all my gushing, The Baller was a huge 5 star, MUST read for me! If you don’t meet Brody and Delilah and NOT love them, then you are seriously missing a gene. Make sure you pick up this one TODAY!
