REVIEW: "Tempting the Player" (Gamble Brothers #2) by J. Lynn

Book Synopsis (from
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:
I wish some fictional characters existed in the real world. Chad Gamble is one of those characters. I fell in love with Chase Gamble in Tempting the Best Man but Chad absolutely stole my heart in this book. He takes sexy to a whole new level.

The chemistry between Bridget and Chad is electric and undeniable. Bridget is a feisty woman and I love pretty much everything about her. She's real. She has insecurities like a lot of women but she also knows how to carry herself. If I were Chad, I would have been drawn to her too.These two absolutely sizzle.

Keep an eye out for Miss Gore. I absolutely hated the woman at the beginning of the story but I slowly learned to appreciate her. Main reason being, she had me laughing hysterically at times.

Maddie, Chase, and Chandler are all in this book as well. I want these characters to last a lot longer than I think they are going to. Three books doesn't seem like enough. If there is one thing the amazing Jennifer L. Armentrout knows how to do perfectly, it's creating a steamy couple that draws you in. I don't think it's possible to put one of her books down. At this point, I am convinced that she can write anything and I will love it.

4 out of 5 stars
