From New York Times 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.
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.

I liked this book but didn't love it. I agree with another reviewer who said 3rd pov took away from main characters. I don't want to spoil, so I'll just say I'd have rather his pov be deeper. I felt his pov was more wrapped up in the ex instead of the development with the current love interest. Over 300 pages so no dissapointment there. Too bad it did not fufill potential for me.

A deliciously sweet romance about a cocky, dirty talking footballer and the confident know-it-all reporter. It was unique and heartwarming from word one.

I love sports stories. I loved meeting Brody and Delilah as they worked through their histories and came together in the end. I liked that her father was a former football plauer, as that added to her credibility as a sportscaster. Worth reading.

Brody is smart, funny and the best in the field. He’s a player too – but there’s some secret in his past he’d like to keep private. He has his way with words that can make you cringe, laugh and turn on at the same time. He has a big and compassionate heart, and that side of him would make you fall even harder. Delilah is going to prove herself that she can be good in her work. But her first interview caught her off guard when the mighty Brody Easton gave her a glimpse of him after dropping the tower. It was an epic first meeting, and I’m glad she easily recovered. Our girl is fierce, but the heartbreak she suffered from the past made her careful and emotionally unavailable for anyone. That is until Brody came along. She did try not to fall for his charms. She tried hard enough, but her control was no match for him. He can easily break down her barriers. Their banters kept me hooked, and thoroughly amused, had me reading till the wee hours of the morning, and let us not talk about the oozing sexual tension between the two characters. It was a very long foreplay, and both were really stubborn – but when it finally happened it was definitely worth the wait. I love Brody’s honesty, his ability to chase after what he wants without inhibitions and his ability to fight hard for it. He knew when he would stand back and wait. He’s a perfect gentleman even though it brings him trouble at times. I love everything Vi Keeland writes – and I mean everything. But this one (The Baller), tops my list. I had so much fun and laughed a whole lot but at the same time there was an ample amount of drama to bring tears to my eyes and crush my heart a little bit. I love the twists and turns and all those surprises that caught me off guard. This is something that you should not miss! Rating: 5 Stars

Well hot damn. Vi out did herself with The Baller. I've been dying to read this one. I didn't even need to read the blurb, the cover alone sold me. And I have to say....Vi did not disappoint. We are only a couple of weeks into 2016 and I already know without a doubt that The Baller will be in my top 10 reads of 2016. This is by far Vi's best work, and I've loved everything I've read that she has written. The Baller has everything I look for in a book. It's flirty, funny, sexy and has characters who I easily connected with. I knew 10% in that I would love Brody Easton. What I didn't expect was the plot twist. She made my heart race with anticipation, wondering what was going to happen. And my feelings never wavered when it came to Brody. I have a feeling Brody Easton is going to top some Book Boyfriends lists! He's at the top of mine! #BrodyCanPlayMeAnyDay Get ready folks because I'm going to be screaming for everyone to READ THIS BOOK!!

Researching and editing would help this story tremendously. By the way, it is "bye week" not "bi."

I'm not even finished this yet, but I can't get into. I wish I loved this like everyone else. It's just missing something for me. Characters seem kind of flat and sterotypical. No wow factor for me. Bummed because I really wanted to like it

4.5 stars. Love her books, this one was another great read. It was steamy, funny, heartwarming, sad and all around wonderful story. It was about 241 pages. Highly recommended.****

I loved the storyline but it kinda fell short for me... I loved the idea of this book but I felt like there was a lot missing and the 3rd POV felt unnecessary to me and took away from the main characters story line.

A good entertaining read. Laugh out loud in spots and it kept my interest enough that I was anxious to finish it up
