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 multi-million 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.

The Review: When I first read Tempting the Best Man, when it was released, it was a real eye opener for me because it proves that Jennifer L. Armentrout can write anything and now, I’ve read Tempting the Player – book two in the Gamble brother series, it’s proves that everything that Jennifer comes up with is just pure amazingness.

In Tempting the Player we meet brother number two – Chad – a famous baseball player and quite frankly a player on and off the field with a very bad reputation. Always being in the spotlight isn’t good when he can’t keep his private life out of the newpapers and as a result of that, he’s in a position where he could possibly lose his baseball contract. And this is where Bridget enters his life. 

Bridget – a 27 year old women who works with Chad’s brother’s girlfriend Maddie, has heard of Chad before but she definitely wasn’t prepared be so attracted him when they meet in a club one night. Their attraction is undeniable but Bridget is unsecure about herself and pushes him away. When Bridget is blackmailed into dating Chad to help his reputation – neither Chad nor Bridget is prepared for their relationship – especially one based that's based on lies. Can they really survive it and have a future together? 

Tempting the Player is a fantastic sequel to Tempting the Best Man! Wow does this book sizzle with intense and steamy scenes – one that’s a very addictive read. I really didn’t know if the author could up stage Madison and Chase from the first book but with characters like Chad and Bridget she sure nailed it. I loved these guys even more, their relationship was a hard one – one that dealt with harder issues and it was definitely more emotional. I was wondering where their story could go but boy, I was not prepared for that whirlwind ending….what a shock, but such a joyful moment that really brought tears to my eyes. 

If you’re a fan of Jennifer L.Armentout’s then her adult series really won’t disappoint you and if you haven’t read any of her work – then what are you waiting for? Because you really are missing out! 

Thank you to Indulgence for giving me the opportunity to review this book.

Another winner from Jennifer. I'm planning to pick up her other YA series soon, I've only read Cursed so far, and maybe then I'll make a move on to the adult. Fantastic review Donna, glad you really enjoyed this.
