The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel
From New York Times & USA Today Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy new novel.
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.
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.

I didn't even read the synopsis for this book, the cover had me hooked from the start. And when I started reading, well I couldn't put it down, Brody just cracked me up. He's so sure of himself, a ... Read full review
Brody. ‘Nuff said.
This is yet another fantastic story by Vi! It’s incredibly hot, well-written and flows smoothly.Delilah might be my favorite heroine ever. She is extremely realistic and acts accordingly. She doesn’t play silly games or have those internal “Should I tell him this extremely important thing? Nah, I won’t tell him this extremely important thing that would prevent a ton of problems in the future. I’ll just keep it to myself” struggles.
Brody is just too adorable. Loyal, smart, hot (of course), but also pretty realistic. He is confronted with some unusual circumstances and handles them in the best way he can. Which isn’t always the correct way, but that makes for some interesting conflicts in the book!
Vi featured an element from Brody’s past that I sort of wish she had handled a little differently (no spoilers!). It had the promise of making for some VERY interesting conflict, but sort of fell short of that when that catalyst was suddenly removed from the story. A lot of words were used to develop the aforementioned catalyst, and I felt the spark was somewhat lacking. Still very interesting, but not quite the “BOOM!” I was expecting or hoping for.
All in all, I really liked this book! I read all 300 pages in 2 sittings, and it’s further proof that I would absolutely read anything…ANYTHING…written by Vi Keeland!
