After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

Okay, Sports Fans listen up – The Catch is the second book in The Player duo by K. Bromberg.  Highly recommend reading my review of The Player before jumping in; otherwise, this will be one GIGANTIC SPOILER for you!

The Catch picks up immediately where The Player left off. Scout has just delivered her assessment on Easton’s ability to return to baseball.  Scout, typically a strong take no nonsense woman, is left feeling uncharacteristically defeated and alone. She’s made a recommendation for the better good, but it’s left her in a lonely and unforgiving position. I wasn’t sure how she could have won this given the plot twist at the end of The Player, so the high level of angst wasn’t unexpected.

Scout and Easton stay true to who they were in The Player.  Scouts is determined as ever to win the Austin Aces contract for her father, although the spitfire personality I loved in the first book was somewhat muted given the all the drama. Easton continued to demonstrate his drive and determination in his pursuit of baseball glory, although he has many more issues to work through in the second novel. The Player also took a closer look into several secondary characters,  including Easton’s manager Finn.

Going to hide the 9th inning on this one…. Most of my reaction came to towards the end, so hiding in case I let the spoiler’s slip:
