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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "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.

    "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.

    "I Enjoyed the Book So Much-I'm A Soccer Fan Now"

    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.

    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.

    "Worst Book in the History of Books"
    What disappointed you about The Player?

    The writing was immature and lame. The story line was mildly better but the character development was so pathetic all I wanted in the end was the book to be over.


    What could Claire Contreras have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stopped writing at the first page


    What didn’t you like about Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing ’s performance?

    I suppose their voices are fine however the script was so bad I just kept on eye rolling and asking them to hurry up and get a point or conclusion


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the cover


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate good books and diverse stories but this book really shouldn't be in the adult romance section

    "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.
