I was totally enchanted with Catching The Player. Diane Alberts wrote a delightful story that all started with a bet and a singing telegram and ended with love. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
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.
I was totally enchanted with Catching The Player. Diane Alberts wrote a delightful story that all started with a bet and a singing telegram and ended with love.
Kassidy was an interesting character. She was burned once by love and never got her self-esteem back. When Wyatt Hamilton asks her for a favor, she can’t stop herself from agreeing. The day may have started off on the wrong foot but definitely ended on a high note. She knows she is not his type and that nothing could ever come of their time together. He keeps reminding her that football is first and he can’t be in a relationship. But, he keeps showing up at her door, helping her, getting to know her and just being a wonderful person … nothing like what she would have thought the hottest man in the NFL would be.
Wyatt is not relationship material. He is married to football and he will not let anything come between him and the game. But, Kassidy is making him feel things that he never thought he would. He told her, right from the beginning, that it’s just “sex” and he can’t figure out why he can’t stay away or stop thinking about her.
As they finally start facing their feelings and Wyatt asks for more, it happens. Now, he may have lost the one woman that could fulfill him. She understands his drive, his determination and will not make any demands on him, and she’s proven that time and time again. Now, to get her to just talk to him again.
I loved Kassidy. She is the total package. She was amusing, determined, smart and definitely the perfect woman for a football player. Wyatt had his moments that stole my heart and then moments that I wanted to slap him. But, it wouldn’t be a romance without a little bit of angst.
I also enjoyed the writing style of Diane Alberts. She kept the story flowing and knew just when to throw in the humor. She melded the characters together and made them seamless. She was able to put two people together that were totally different and yet, wrote them so that they complimented each other. I truly enjoyed reading Catching The Player and am looking forward to more of the Hamilton’s.
