Overview

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 multimillion-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.

    Highly Recommended - I LOVE Chad Gamble!!!

    The sequel to Tempting the Best Man does not disappoint. There is so much to love about this book it's hard to really pin-point where to begin.

    The premise of this book is so fun. In the public eye, Chad is this bad boy player, but in reality, most of that is fiction. He's told he needs to clean up his image to get the contract extension he wants. The way this goes down is comical, but I don't want to say too much because I don't want to spoil anything.

    Here's what you need to know...Chad is a hottie! As a professional baseball player, he can have any girl he wants. He's confident and successful with lots of wit to spare. Bridget is fun to cheer for. She's a few pounds overweight, but not winey or annoying about it. Oh, and I love that the fact that she isn't stick-thin is part of Chad's attraction.

    The sexy scenes in this book are off-the-charts-HOT! J. Lynn is a master at the sexual tension! I cannot wait for the next Gamble Brothers book. Bottom line, go buy this book immediately. You will stay up all night reading it and all the next day talking about it! Highly recommend!!!

    Can you say Scorching Hawt!! Thanks to Entangled Publishing for

    Can you say Scorching Hawt!!

    Thanks to Entangled Publishing for providing a copy in exchage of an honest review.

    Tempting the player (Gamble #2) is fantastic. A book that will leave you aching for more while fulffiling all your wicked fantasies!!!
    Here is a little background on why I'm completely crazy about this release.

    When I read Tempting the Best Man (Gamble #1) I loved the story and fell in love with the characters, Chase and Maddie where amazing and sweet and sexy as hell and I loved them but I also went crazy over Chad and Chandler. Even though I didn't know them I was intrigued and I wanted to know so much more.

    Obviously, the first thing I did once I finished that book, was to contact the author and almost begged for a second book and I wasn't the only one, lots and lots of fans wanted that too. So once the author announced that Entangled's Brazen imprint was going to release Tempting the Player I was ecstatic. It was like an early Christmas present.

    I crossed fingers and prayed to get an ARC of this book, yeah I'm crazy like that =D, one day I opened up my email and there it was SUBJECT: Tempting the Player ARC the best morning I've had in long time. I squealed, jumped and called a couple of friends(happiness needs to be shared) anyway once I settle down enough, opened up my ARC and the first thing I though was...

    What if I don't like it? I've been dying to get this title and waiting for it so much that, I was scared. But then I read the first chapter and I was a goner.

    Chad is my kind of guy, bad boy, with a sinful body, totally sexy and he knows it and owns it. He's also the super star pitcher for Nationals; he just have one problem, he doesn't know how to play by the rules, ohh and he's a self-centered arss... did I say one problem??? .. I meant two LOL!!!

    Bridget is one of a kind; she has a weird fashion sense, the most heart stopping green eyes that completely match her beautiful red hair, she's completely loyal, witty and trust worthy, but she has one problem she doesn't see herself as the beautiful curvier woman she is.

    One Night chance or fate decided to play games with this two and OMG!!!! This couple is perfect; they both have the perfect amount of snark and wit, they call it as they see it, and to make things more interesting they have a smashing chemistry.

    As the plot thickens, Chad and Bridget get caught up on a charade that could end up costing a lot more than their works it could cost them their hearts.

    This book is flawless, J. Lynn is the Queen of Sexual tension, and the buildup on this one was so magnificent that when the time came I was drooling my way through it. I love Alpha males and she has the male persona nailed (yes Nic I stole your phrase LOL), I have yet to read one of her books where I don't fall head over heels for the male character.

    Chad and Bridget are such a sweet couple but they have this strenght when they are together... well and Chad ohhh Chad. Where can I place an order for one like him? *drools a bit*

    Cant wait to read Chandler's story and for what I saw here, his book is going to be pretty interesting. God have Mercy on him LOL!!!!

    I adored that we get to see a bit more about Chase and Maddie and how the brothers interact.

    So, if you guys are looking for a sizzling hot romance that promise to keep you up at the wee hours of the night;with amazing characters and a beautifulled weebed story, search no more Tempting the Player is what you are looking for.

    I loved Tempting the Player. I loved how we got to see glimps

    I loved Tempting the Player.

    I loved how we got to see glimpses of Maddie and Chase and the rest of the Gamble/Daniel brothers. I loved how the chemistry and the wit between Bridget and Chad.

    I loved how the plot moved along and the problems that each character faced. The reactions to the conflicts was predictable, as was the ending, but it didn't make this book any less enjoyable to read. I highly recommend to anyone who likes hot, smart contemporary romance.

    The hero sucked

    ## I couldn't stand this book. The hero ruined it for me. He was insufferable. Cocky and arrogant and just awful. Why do authors insist on making heroes such man-sluts? And then we're supposed to believe and be grateful that he only wants the heroine from now on? And the resulting proposal sucked, too. The heroine was ok, although I didn't think it was necessary to bring up her weight quite so often. Don't bother with this book.

    It is nice to see a player fall in love.

    This story shows a guy who has a bad reputation and needs a new image. A sweet woman enters his world, gets stuck in a compromising position and then a fake relationship happens. The fact that it ends in a HEA is so cool

    Ever since reading Tempting the Best Man, I've been dying to rea

    Ever since reading Tempting the Best Man, I've been dying to read this book, to know Chad's story. I wondered what girl would make him actually settle down. Now, after reading Tempting the Player, I can say that I love Chad and Bridget so very much! They have such amazing chemistry together, right from the beginning. I loved they way they slowly fell in love over the course of the novel.

    Chad is a pro baseball player, and he's a player on and off the field. However, he is forced into a fake relationship with Bridget so that the contract with his baseball club doesn't fall through. I loved Chad immediately. He's funny, smart, and of course very hot! He can literally have anyone he wants, anytime he wants. I loved how Bridget made him show his emotional side, and he was so incredibly sweet to her when he got her the dress and the necklace, and when he did other stuff for her too. No, I'm not talking about what you think I am ;)

    Bridget was a really likeable character, and I loved how she was so eccentric. She's also nothing like the other women Chad has been with, and I think that was what drew him to her in the first place. I liked that she was different. The fact that Chad went straight to her even though she's not as thin and flawless as the supermodels he's been with, shows that Chad really saw something there. Something that would grow between them and hopefully blossom into something completely new.

    And of course that's what happened! Chad and Bridget slowly fell in love, with a lot of hot- no, smoldering scenes between them. Seriously, it showed me exactly why this book isn't meant for younger eyes! The sparks flying between them were white-hot and explosive, but the scenes were fun at the same time. I think I like Chad and Bridget even more than Chase and Maddie, though they're only ahead by a bit. Chad has an easy smile and personality that you can't help but love, and Bridget is just so awesome that you can't help loving her too.

    I was incredibly happy to see Chase and Maddie in this novel, and it was great to see that they're still totally infatuated with each other. I'd have loved to read more scenes of the four of them together, double-dating or something.
    There was a new character in this book, Miss Alana Gore, whom I did not like at all in the beginning. She blackmails Bridget into agreeing to pretend to go out with Chad, and I didn't like her strict, no-nonsense, nanny-like attitude. I was actually surprised to see something there between her and Chandler, the oldest Gamble brother. I can't wait to see how their relationship comes about in Tempting the Bodyguard! Anyway, though I didn't like her at the start and throughout most of the book, I loved her in the end. Essentially, she was the one who brought Chad and Bridget together permanently, and they probably wouldn't be together if she hadn't done what she'd done. So, Miss Gore, kudos for that.

    The ending was simply amazing. And perfect. It was a fit-for-Hollywood kind of ending! Chad is the sweetest guy ever, for all the things he's done for Bridget, and all he's given up for her. Bridget in turn has had to make sacrifices for him, so I was ecstatic when everything turned out great in the end.

    J. Lynn (or Jennifer Armentrout) is an amazing author, and I love every book by her. If you haven't yet read this series, start now! It's amazing, I promise you.

    Hot and so sweet

    This was sooooo much hotter than Tempting the Best Man :) Wow Chad was hot, so alpha, yet so sweet and romantic. What he does for Bridget on Christmas is incredibly romqntic. The storyline was stronger than Maddie and Chase. I definitely can't wait to read what's next with Chandler!

    Tempting the Player is the story of Chad and Bridget, who me met

    Tempting the Player is the story of Chad and Bridget, who me met briefly in Tempting the Best Man. This story is awesome! So far I've loved everything Jennifer L. Armentrout (J. Lynn) has written, but her adult fiction is my favorite. This book is one you don't want to miss. Especially if you loved Chase and Maddie's story as much as I did!! Chad is such a fun character, and Bridget is his perfect counterpart. Their story is so fun!!

    Must read right away!

    I can't tell you enough how much I loved this book! I actually think I like Chad better than I did his brother Chase (he was in Tempting the Best Man, which by the way you should check out also). Chad is this very confident, very hot baseball player that has the typical bad boy image. Le sigh. He drinks, he parties, and normally is photographed with numerous girls. Then there is Bridget, she's this nice, curvaceous, girl that loves color.
    Their first 'meeting' didn't go as planned so when they meet a month later, Chad had to prove a point. Well that point ended up in the papers. In order for him to stay with the Nationals he must pretend that Bridget is his girlfriend. Man, the chemistry between the two makes you want to fan yourself or go take a cold shower.
    I loved everything about this book, but the only bad thing (very, very small detail) that a few times Chase's name was there instead of Chad's (not a very big deal though).

    I'm a huge fan of romance with a good plot and this author never fails to deliver, whether it be an adult novel or YA. I enjoyed this book even more than the first, couldn't stop reading it until I reached the end. If you enjoy a good steamy romance you seriously need to pick this book up! :)

    I loved Tempting the Best Man, and Tempting the Player was even better!

    I think Chad is even better than Chase. Love how he knows what he wants, and doesn't care what anyone else thinks about how he runs his life. Though when he has to put up with Ms. Gore, I laughed my butt off. She is the perfect publicist for a player like Chad.

    This book was unbelievably hot! And done in a great way! Love the sexual tension the J. Lynn can create between her characters! If you have not read this book or Tempting the Best Man you are missing out! The only way to rectify the situation is to read both immediately!
