Blurb: It all started with a bet…

Kassidy Thomas decided to stop hiding behind her past, and start living, but she didn’t quite bet on that start including her singing a horrible song in front of the handsomest bachelor in the NFL, Wyatt Hamilton. She also doesn’t think he’d then consequently ask her out on a date, but turns out when you’re actually living life…crazy things happen.

He needs to win…

Wyatt Hamilton is a player in every sense of the word. Married to the game, he has no interest in relationships, love, or even second nights with the same woman. But from the second the girl-next-door beauty Kassidy knocks on his door to deliver a singing telegram, nothing goes as planned. He can’t stop thinking about her, and keeps showing up on her doorstep for more. That is, until the unthinkable happens…

And all bets are off.

Favorite quotes: In my mind, it’s all Kassidy, all the time.  I only have one channel.”

“I don’t lie.  I always tell the truth.  So, it’s true when I say this:  you’re beautiful.  When you smile, I swear, you take my breath away.”

Thoughts:  Catching the Player is a sweet romance, with a little sport twist to it.  Neither character is particularly looking for a relationship, especially Wyatt.  Wyatt is basically married to football – it’s his life.  He is dedicated to his sport and his team, and promises himself that he will never let a woman come between him and the game like he has seen happen with many other players.  Women are just distractions.  Unfortunately, life has other plans and these two can’t stay away from each other no matter how hard they try.  And they are a perfect fit!

At times I was a bit annoyed at Wyatt for his unwavering stance about relationships.  What redeemed it for me was that Wyatt was always upfront and honest about how he felt about things – he made that plain from the beginning.  I also loved when he finally caved and gave into the love he felt for Kassidy.  If you are looking for a sweet romance, Catching the Player is a good one to grab!
