TBT Review: The Baller by Vi Keeland

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men's locker room.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.
And by all, I don't mean he told me any of his secrets.
No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera.
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby--screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don't date players.
And it's not because I'm one of the few women working in the world of professional football.
I'd date an athlete.
It's the other kind of player I don't date. 
You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid. 

Brody Easton was the ultimate player. 
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him. 
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for. 
Turned out, I was that girl. 
Simple right? Let's face it. It never is. 
There's a story between once upon a time and happily ever after...
And this one is ours.

Flip a coin. Heads- you give me. Tails- I take yours. It's a total win-win for you.
I normally don't read a lot of sports romances but the blurb of The Baller had piqued my interest a lot. The reason for that is that the main female character Delilah was a sportscaster. I think that was the main reason I decided to read this book. As a woman in the sports world that is mainly dominated by men it's important to be strong and not take any crap from anyone. Delilah grew up in this world so she knew exactly how to act and communicate with athletes.

You have a dirty mouth." "This dirty mouth wants to do dirty things to you.
I just loved the first interaction between the sexy Brody Easton and Delilah Maddox. Brody had me hooked from the first scene he was in. There is just something about these alpha and cocky athletes that does things to us women. He definitely knew what he wanted and went for it. Delilah was hesitant because she didn't want just a casual thing. There are also some things in her past that made her kind of hesitant to get involved with Brody. Brody doesn't give up though. I loved that he wasn't this player (in the period of the book) that went and had casual sex with any women. He was focused on Delilah!! I really loved that about him. 

They say blood is thicker than water, but that doesn't mean shit. Everyone needs water to live.
Both Brody and Delilah have history, a very sad one. I was happy both of them closed those chapters in this book. I did love the first half of the book more than the second. Because I thought the interaction between the two got a little less. I loved them as a couple. In the second part we get 3/4 chapters in a new/third person's POV. Normally I don't like that but it worked really well in this book. I hope that person gets her/his own book. The writing was excellent, I am definitely looking forward to reading more books by Vi. 

When life knocks you down, stop and look around for one thing that's good, because there is always something. Then cling to that good.
