The Baller by Vi Keeland REVIEW

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.

Review

★★★★★ 5 Stars ★★★★★

Oh my goodness! I just can’t seem to get enough of the sport romance sub-genre, I cannot resist when faced with these huge muscular men the size of a mountain and the strength of a bear. Watching these tough jocks fall hard for their heroines is an addiction for me.

Brody Easton. His name alone gives me goosebumps – he was perfection. Obviously he’s hot, that’s a given, as well as the fact that he’s built like a brick shit-house and an amazing athlete. But it was his personality that won me over, and Brody Eason made me swoon and swoon again.

Delilah Maddox is a professional sportscaster who’s father, like Brody, was also the star Quarterback of his team, so she knows the score, there are women everywhere trying to tame the big bad Football star.

Brody and Delilah had banter and plenty of it, it was funny and added wonderfully to the amazing sexual chemistry that was present throughout the whole book, I found myself smiling at their interactions and really rooting for them to get it on. Delilah is naturally hesitant to moves things along, she lost her one true love at a young age and although she isn’t particularly eager to get into a long lasting relationship she isn’t one for one night stands either.

“You’re spooning me? Brody Easton spoons?”
“Only you, baby. But don’t be surprised if you get woken up by my fork later.”

Brody also has a past that is preventing him from opening up his heart, but he wants Delilah, so Delilah he shall have.

I also loved the backstory, it was angsty enough but not so much that you were worried about the outcome. I always knew Brody would pull through and his huge heart of pure gold was such a great attribute, I adored him.

“This shit was not over. And I was going to find out once and for all why she was pretending it was.”

This was a little different to Vi’s previous works, it focused much more on the emotional connection and had a little less of the erotic scenes that are present in her other books, but that is what ultimately made me fall in love with this story, I really felt a strong connection, not only between the two main characters but also with Delilah and Brody’s close friends.

Sports romance lovers will not be disappointed!

The Baller is a standalone Sports Romance told in alternating POVs.
