Tempting The Player by J. Lynn: A Review


Tempting the Player

Chad Gamble, all-star pitcher for the Nationals, is one of the best players on—and off—the field. And right now, the notorious bad boy wants Bridget Rodgers. But with her lush curves and snappy comebacks, the feisty redhead is the kind of woman a man wants to settle down with…and that’s the last thing Chad needs.
When the paparazzi catch them in a compromising position, Chad’s manager issues an ultimatum: clean up his act or kiss his multi-million dollar contract goodbye. To save his career, his meddling publicist says he’ll have to convince everyone Bridget isn’t just his flavor of the week, but his girlfriend.
Being blackmailed into a fake relationship with Chad Gamble isn’t easy, especially when the sizzling physical attraction between them is undeniable. With a month to go on their arranged pretense, it’s going to take every ounce of willpower they have not to fall into bed together…or in love.

Reviews and Praise

"The chemistry sizzles off the page! TEMPTING THE PLAYER will make you laugh out loud and stay up long into the night." - New York Times Bestselling author Katee Robert
"A story that goes from simmering to singeing-your-eyebrows hot!" - Fresh Fiction

This was such a fun read!  I'd already fallen for the Gamble brothers in Tempting The Best Man ~ but WOW, Chad was so great!  He's a playboy superstar baseball player, who has been playing so hard his team is exasperated with his antics.  AND he's just enough of a dominant to be delicous!! 

Bridget (think Garcia off of Crimnal Minds here) is totally not Chad's normal skinny, model perfect chick.  
Chad thinks she's so hot, but she'd freaked and left on him after their first meet and he didn't know how to get hold of her again ~ until he comes face to face with her at lunch with his own BROTHER and his wife!  
How lucky can he get?  
He can't resist a kiss to show her how much they want one another...but once again Chad gets caught by the press.  And to keep his job with is team, he's basically forced to fake a relationship with Bridget...
only problem is, he likes it so much he's not sure he WANTS it to be fake. 

Bridget is blackmailed into acting like she's in a relationship with Chad for a month...
she knows this going to lead to being bad for HER.
She knows he's everything she's dreamed of in a man. 

Argh, I could go on...but the thing was I thought these two were great together. 
They made me laugh with their banter, and it was so cool Chad was so into Bridget, and even being as arrogant as he is, he's unsure with her. 
 It's so cute and sweet! 
 And this is from a guy who's about taking what  he wants...and not going any time at all between conquests.  OMG, the smexy times are AWESOME!!

I cannot WAIT for the next book...and I suspect the 3rd Gamble brother is going to
hook up with the blackmailer from this book, lol. 
Intrigued?  Good, you NEED to read this!!

  1. Thanks for another great review Melissa. I'm hoping print versions of these books are released soon as the ebook versions are not available for me.
