Tempting the Player by J. Lynn

Gamble Brothers, Book 2

Synopsis: A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

He’s a player on and off the field…

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.

Review: I had a good time with the first volume and I was curious to get into the sequel to discover the story of the second Gamble brother.

We discover Chad, the brother of Chase, (ouep the names are a little too close for my taste) who must manage his problem of popularity. Indeed, as a baseball player, he is now better known for his escapades with women than for his game … Bridget is a friend of Maddie who is married with Chase and when she meets Chad, it is love at first sight. But she knows she can not expect anything from him. Yet fate will bring them together when she is forced to become his girlfriend to restore her image.

I had a fairly light moment with the novel. Bridget and Chad are pretty cute together and without knowing it, they fall in love. The novel is not very complicated or original but it’s nice. On the other hand I admit that I was a little disappointed with the end with a request in marriage after a month of relationship but well …

To conclude, it is a good light little romance.
