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.

Can you say scorching Hawt??
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.
