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.

Excerpt from

A new song had just started, and I was enjoying his company when a voice behind me said, “Can I cut in?”

My head whipped around, even though I had no doubt whom the gravelly voice belonged to.

Michael was gracious. “I hate to share. But I suppose I have been hogging the most beautiful woman at the event.” He let go of my hand and stepped back with a gentlemanly nod. “Thank you for the dance, Delilah.”

Again Brody Easton had caught me off guard. Before I knew it, I was dancing with the arrogant jerk.  He wrapped his arms around me and pulled my body tight against his. Way tighter than Michael had held me.

“Good to see you again, Lois Lane.”

The man had balls; I had to give him that. I looked him straight in the eyes. “Nice to see you with clothes on, Easton.”

“Do you prefer me without?”

“I prefer you on the other side of the room.”

He chuckled. It was a hearty laugh. “That’s what happens sometimes when you decide you want to hang out in the men’s locker room.”

I tried to pull back, but he tightened his grip and held me in place. I craned my neck. “Let go of me.”



“That’s right. No.”

“I can scream at the top of my lungs.”

“I’d like to hear you scream.” His tone made it clear he meant he wanted me underneath him while I was doing the screaming.

“You’re an asshole. You know that?”

“I do. You asked me that yesterday. For a reporter, you should really try changing up your questions more frequently.”

My eyes bulged.

Easton shifted his hand down to the small of my back before twirling us around the dance floor. Figures the prick can dance.

“Are you seeing anyone?”

“You can’t be serious?”

He ignored my comment. “Would you like to have dinner tonight?”

“We just ate.”

“Dessert at my place, then?”

I couldn’t help but laugh. “Did you hit your head at the game yesterday?”

“On a diet, huh?”

“Yeah. That’s it. I don’t want to go to your place for dessert because I’m on a diet.”

“Well, that’s just a shame.”

5 touchdown stars

I bloody loved this book. It ticked all my boxes for a humorous romance. The characters absolutely zinged off the pages, I connected with all of them including Grouper and Marlene. Even Willow, you can’t help but feel for her too even though you want her to go away!

I loved Brody Easton, I loved his character, his voice and his dirty ways – hahahaa. Oh man, he can drop his towel for me any day ☺ I wanted to scream at him a couple of time come on, come on don’t do that lol… but damn he’s man and of course fooking it up comes with the terrority hahahaa.

I loved Delilah too, she was fun, placid, an easy going character that put others before herself. She was also caught up in the past and then with the elephant in the room, she had to deal with that as well.

Im my opinion what makes a good book is a few things, characters first, they have to connect, then story, it’s got to hold you but what takes a good book into the realms of a really good book/great book is the deliverance as well. Vi delivered The Baller with some serious panaché and flair. There are some corker lines throughout The Baller, some really great ones that give characters that extra edge too.

I really loved my trip with Brody and Delilaha and I thank the powers that be very much for allowing me an ARC. I highly recommend this, especially if you like romance with some great all round excellent characters, lead and secondary, and of course if you have a penchance for sport (which funnily enough I don’t – go figure, lol.)
