Review - The Player by Claire Contreras

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.
Every man wants to be me and every woman wants to tame me. Until Camila.
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.

My 5 Star Review

If you have read Claire’s books you know they are emotional and almost always bring you to tears. I saw on Facebook she said this book was not like her other books and I have to agree. The Player is a sexy, sweet sports romance and like her other books, I loved every minute!

Camila, our heroine, is super strong and levelheaded. When push comes to shove she is the first person to stand up and fight for what is right and I loved that about her. We first meet Camila when she learns a developer is them out of their neighborhood so they can “improve” things. Meaning her family, friends and local business owners will be homeless and some jobless. She refuses to take this lying down and is the first to confront them.

That’s where she meets Warren Silva. Warren is a professional soccer player and lives overseas. He is only in town on holiday and while there he is attending to some of his business affairs, that’s right he is one of the investors. Camila is instantly attracted to the fit, tattooed man who looks like he doesn’t belong in the business meeting, but he is the enemy. When Warren begins pursuing Camila she is quick to say no and slow to give in.

I love so much about this story, first I loved that Camila was a rockstar of a heroine. She is was strong, determined and feisty. I absolutely love that she had no clue Warren was the famous War Zone and I loved even more when she discovered it that she didn’t care. If anything his millionaire, playboy status only deterred her more. 

I also loved how Warren turned out to be so much more than a douchey player. Sure he had his playboy ways, but once he met his game changer he was all in and ready to fight to prove he was worthy. This story took on a life of it’s own while I was reading it and I completely fell in love with these characters. 

The Player has Claire’s usual writing style, it's addictive and heartfelt, but it was also super sexy! I felt like I really understood the world these two were living in and I couldn’t get enough. I love how the story isn’t what I expected and it’s not even your usual sports romance, it’s more. Lastly, this cover, hello! He is exactly who I pictured as War when I was reading the story and that’s just icing on this amazing story!
