Tempting the Player (Gamble Brothers #2)
When the paparazzi catch them in a compromising position, Cha...more
I'll admit it: Tempting the Player was far better than J. Lynn's first foray into the world of adult fiction, Tempting the Best Man, but it wasn't quite enough to rock my boat. In their entirety, Lynn's novels are entertaining... and that's about it. Which is precisely why I pick them up when I need to get my mind off of a few serious issues and simply relax, but really, I can't award these books any more than 3 Stars because I just like them. I don't love them like I did On Du...more
The premise of this book is so fun. In the public eye, Chad is this bad boy player, but in reality, most of that is fiction. He's told he needs to clean up his image to get the contract extension he wants. The way this goes down is comical, but I don't want to say too much because I don't want to spoil anything.
Here's what you need to know...Chad is a hot...more
I rounded to 3 stars, because I didn’t wish it would be over.
The main plot was watching a relationship develop - with conflicts occurring and being resolved - which is good. But the conflicts were my problem. They are attracted to each other and both want sex. There are three sex scenes which are started with one person being pleasured, then all of a sudden Bridget calls a halt and leaves. Eac...more
“There isn’t a ‘but’ in this.” He cupped her cheek, tilting her head back. When he spoke, his lips brushed hers. “I want you. Bad. Right now. Against the wall. On my bed. The floor and maybe in the bathroom later. I have a shower stall and a Jacuzzi we could put to really good use. I know you’d like it.”
Well hello there, Chad Gamble. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Oh, Jennifer Armentrout…umm…err…I mean Ms. J. Lynn, you never cease to amaze me. Each time this author comes out with somethi...more
I love how we get the POV from both leading characters. Chad the playboy handsome sportsman and loveable insecure Bridget.
This book had me melting from their first encounter. I was excited to read this book after thoroughly enjoying the authors first in the series and it most definitely did not disappoint.
I definitely am not one to resist bad boy turning good with sassy gorgeous good girl, this book kept me entertained from beginning t...more
We have our pro baseball player, who is godlike. He is beautiful and a total player. He has girls just dangling to him.
Well when he meets Bridget, things are going to change, possibly.
Bridget isn't a model or a celebrity nope, she has student loans she is barely managing to pay. A curvy figure and red hair. She has her own version of fashion and it's bright and eccentric.
Suddenly when she is coming apart in Chad's bedroom she gets co...more
Oh, Lordy. Just when I thought I loved Maddie and Chase, Bridget and Chad came and stole their thunder.
Compared to Chase in Tempting the Best Man, I think Chad beat Chase on the sexy scale...big time. He's possessive and intense, whereas Chase was more playful. I fell even more in love with the Gamble brothers this time around, and I can't wait for the third book in the series.
If you want to relax with a fun, easy, steamy read, this is the series for you.
Chad Gamble is a player on the field and off. He’s the middle of the 3 Gamble Brothers and th...more

I already knew I would love this one because:
1) JLA wrote it
2) It's about a sexy Gamble brother and
3) He's a baseball player!! My all time favorite sport!!

My review can also be found on my blog Collections.
These Gamble books are such fun reads! They do what they're suppose to do, keeping me entertained and causing me to fan myself over all the heat coming off the pages. I really loved Bridget and Chad's story even more than Madison and Chase's. It was hotter and steamier... Just the way I like it!
What I felt was a rushed ending in Tempting the Best Man was not the case at all for Tempting the Player! The story was longer and had what I thought was...more
Since I enjoyed reading Tempting the best man and the Gamble brothers intrigued me so I couldn wait to read Chads story. I really liked Bridget and Chad. Sure, he is a "player" but there is more to him than meets the eye. Bridget is really funny and a very good person. I think that they are perfect for each other. The storyline was interesting. I liked the idea and how it was realized. They really have chemistry and some scenes were really steamy. Miss Gore was a chara...more

SUMMARY (55 words or less)
Okay, I knew Chad was my guy in the first book and he lived up to my expectations. This book had a lot of twist I thought I could predict and would be wrong. This is an easy read with just enough angst, sex, dr...more

Rating: 4.5 stars
"Flowers. Fine dining. Fine- looking man.
And threw in an N: No expectations."
Tempting the Player is the J. Lynn's second installment of the Gamble Brothers series and I can say this is better than the Tempting the Best Man.
This time, J. Lynn was able to build up the characters, Chad and Bridget, individuality first before they met. Chad, the player, both on field and in bed; and Bridget, the struggling college student who has a weird- good sense in fashion.
The more you hat...more
This was such a fun read! I'd already fallen for the Gamble brothers in Tempting The Best Man ~ but WOW, Chad was so great! He's a playboy superstar baseball player, who has been playing so hard his team is exasperated with his antics. AND he's just enough of a dominant to be delicous!!
Bridget (think Garcia off of Crimnal Minds here) is totally not Chad's normal skinny, model perfect chick.
Chad thinks she's so hot, but she'd freaked and left on him after their first meet and he didn't know how...more
Tempting the Player got me hooked from chapter one!
Book one of Gamble Brothers was sweet and angsty, but book two was sizzling
Chad *ahem* (view spoiler)[ is better in bed than Chase (Sorry, I love you too Chase but Chad is simply *yum* however personally I feel Chase is a better person than Chad) ;D (hide spoiler)]
To continue his contract,he now has to salvage his reputation, keep his hands(specifically his manhood) to himself, and here comes Ms Gore the publicist to make sur...more
Si vous voulez lire une romance contemporaine, dynamique, qui répond exactement aux définitions du genre, sans vous prendre pour une imbécile, lisez le second tome de la série de J. Lynn dont nous ne dirons jamais assez le talent.
A partir d’une intrigue archi-rebattue et à l’épaisseur d’une feuille de cigarette, elle trousse une délicieuse histoire très sexy qui vous fera passer un excellent moment. Ce second tome est d’ailleurs totalement dans la lignée d...more
Chad Gamble is the star pitcher for the Nationals. With a reputation as a womaniser, the team management hire a publicist to make him tone down his image. Recent articles and photos of Chad with numerous women, are hurting his teams image.

Rachel's review was first posted at Romancing the Book's blog.
Okay, let it just be said that I had no idea what to expect with this book. I’d read some of Miss Armentrout’s YA books and wasn’t so sure how I would like her contemporary romances.
At this moment I’m thanking my lucky stars that I’m a book reviewer for Romancing the Book. This romance had everything: Great dialogue, strong plot, feisty characters, and steamy scenes that make a girl sweat...more
Slowly, he pulled his hand free and stepped back. With his eyes locked onto hers, he brought his finger to his mouth and sucked off her arousal.
But then it goes down hill after that. Bridget and her insecurities, notices his phone has gotten a text from what looks lik...more

I was laughing my butt off and I literally mean that.

The comical scenes were priceless!
Just irrevocably in love with this book!

# 1 New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout Lives in West Virginia.
All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.
Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.
