Book Blurb:

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.

My Thoughts:
Oh well, there are absolutely no words to describe how brilliant an author Jennifer Armentrout really is! And I’m afraid, that no matter what I say or what words I’ll use to do it won’t do her justice. Yeah, you guessed right, I absolutely loved Tempting the Player! No big surprise here, right?

Jennifer Armentrout is one of those authors whose work hasn’t failed me even once to this day. Either she writes YA or adult, her stories are incredible and manage to stir such emotions that has made this author one of my absolute favorites!

Tempting the Player is her second adult contemporary romance in her Gamble Brothers series and its the story of Chad Gable and Bridget and if I just loved the story of the first Gable brother, Chase, let me tell you that I loved this one even more because somehow, it’s even better! I don’t how that is even possible but it’s true! Chad and Bridget’s story just blew me away with its humor and sexual tension and with how deliciously hot those sex scenes were!

Honestly, if there’s one thing that Jennifer Armentrout can do perfect (and there are many more believe me!) that is building a painfully delicious sexual tension between her main couples. In every single title I read by this author, that is one department she never fails to deliver. Never! And not only that, but it seems that book by book, she gets even better if that is possible. I mean how many levels of sexual tension are there to get better and better by each book?

So be warned, Chad and Bridget share some really HOT scenes in Tempting the Player!

The story of Tempting the Player is rather typical, not big surprises here, but the way Jennifer Armentrout delivers her stories is what makes them so unique. It’s not the actual stories that are so great (which they are now that I’m thinking about it) but it’s also the way she writes them. Her sense of humor is just priceless!

All in all, Tempting the Player was a pure delight to read, a story all fans of the genre and all fans of the author shouldn’t miss. It’s simply wickedly entertaining!
