I’m naturally gifted on the field and between the sheets. With flashy cars and enough media attention to put the Royal Family to shame, I’m the definition of Most Eligible Bachelor.
I’ve never met a man who doesn’t want to be me or a woman who doesn’t want to tame me. Until I meet Camila.
From the moment I lay eyes on her, I know I have to have her.
She wants to keep me at arm’s length.
I want her naked in my bed.
She thinks our worlds are too different.
All I want her to think about is screaming my name.
She says I’m bad news.
I have three weeks to prove her wrong.
I love sports romances. I mean what is not to love, right? Hot, sexy, and athletic men who are alpha in every way. So, again, what is not to love? In The Player, Claire Contreras gives us one hot, sexy alpha man in Warren Silva.
Originally from New York, Warren is now living out his dream by playing in Europe. He is currently the hottest commodity in the world of soccer. Men want to be him and woman just want him. And though he is at the top of his game, there is so much more to him. He is also a smart man who invests in his future. A bit cocky, he comes by it naturally with all the success he has found.
Camilla Avilla is a strong, stubborn and determined woman, who can at times be on the shy side. That is, until someone messes with those she cares about. When she first meets Warren she finds him very attractive, but has no idea who he is. But she also knows they are complete opposites in every way. For this reason, she keeps her distance. Even when he brings out the charm that has woman falling to their knees.
Back home to take care of some business needs, Warren meets Camilla and is instantly drawn to her There is just something about her. Though the chemistry between these two was instant and hot, they come from entirely different worlds. Camilla is not used to men like Warren and his intent pursuit on winning her over. What could he see in her? Warren on the other hand had never met a woman like Camilla. She is not drawn to the player or his money. No, what draws her in is the man, in spite of who he is
Though Warren is used to women being readily available to him, for the first time he finds himself working hard to win over woman. But there is something about her that pushes him to pursue her. She is so unlike any other woman and that intrigues him.
Just when you think everything may just fall into place for these two, secrets are revealed that may be too much to overcome. Can they find a way to be together? Is love enough when so much stands in the way? It is definitely worth reading The Player to find out. You will love Warren and Camilla and will find yourself cheering them on. I found The Player a very charming and sexy story and would definitely recommend it.
I give The Player by Claire Contreras 4-stars!
