"My life has gotten a little complicated recently."

"Ohh-kay," she said slowly. What the heck does that mean?

"So my schedule sort of got filled up," he completed, looking miserable. "For... er, the foreseeable future."

"Oh." She stiffened. "Okay."

"But I really do like you."

"Sure." Can I just slink away now?

He ran a hand through his hair. "You don't believe me, do you?"

She shrugged. "I..."

He leaned down and kissed her.

I l0ove my Harlequin Romances! The reason I love them is very simple - you know exactly what to expect going in and usually, they deliver. This was the case here. I was overwhelmed by books that take themselves too seriously and I needed a nice, light and sexy read. This is exactly what I got, and I am once again reassured that things are right in the world:-)

This is a story about two nice neighbors - The nice and stable guy and the serious, hard-working, recently divorced girl next
Rating 3.5

I enjoyed the book, the hero tired of being a boring guy saw some guys going into an alley & found the notorious Players Club, a bunch of guys who are adventurous. The heroine his neighbour is tired of being an achiever and has sold her business to her ex-husband, wanting to do something different.

Somehow, the heroine finds out about the Players Club since she and the hero become hot & heavy, being sexually adventurous, she also decides to help him get in so that he can recomme

Reviewed for THC Reviews
"4.5 stars" Scott is the first book in Cathy Yardley's new trilogy, The Player's Club. Due to the shorter length, Harlequin novels in general and the Blaze line in particular can be rather hit and miss with me, but I'm happy to say that Scott was the best Blaze novel I've read to date. I read Scott for review, and in all honesty it probably isn't a book I would have picked up on my own. Based on the cover blurb, I had the mistaken impression that the members of The Player

How we got this book: eARC from author

Lou: When Minn emailed me this request, the blurb intrigued me and because it was a contemporary romance, I didn’t want to pass it up — despite the up and down relationship I have with Harlequin’s categories. This is the first book in the series about an infamous club called the Players Club, where rich males are members an

Oh boy, this is a really hard review for me to write. Not every book I read is a good fit with my interests and I hate to be too negative. It's not that I didn't like this one, but it felt like an average story to me and there were several things that bothered me.

Sometimes when I read a book, there aren't a lot of details about the characters or their backgrounds but the story still manages to pull me in and capture my attention. Not this book though. Scott and Amanda didn't feel complete to me,
Hot and romantic! That combination always makes the best Blaze book.

The romance between Scott and Amanda begins hot and heavy and keeps pace throughout the story without becoming boring or redundant or overdone.

The plot also keeps moving along and Scott's quests, his interactions with the Players and later to Amanda all make The Players Club: Scott an entertaining read.

It also makes you want to knock a few things off your bucket list, too, before it's too late. In theory, in my case, because I p

This book, first of a three series, delivers what you expect from a Blaze title - feisty heroine, hero who realises he's wrong, misunderstanding, bad guy usurped, reconciliation with happy ending! The writing flowed well, the story was quite good - though Scott did seem like a little kid wanting to play with the spoilt big kids.
this was a cute story. it was a bit predictable, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I will continue on the other books. The narrator was ok. She got tripped up on some pronunciations and had some trouble with the male voices, but I thought she did a good job of keeping me interested in the story.

Unique story line but the hero and heroine were not the strongest characters in the book. The next two featured characters were Lincoln and Finn.

Narrator was putting me to sleep...
I liked Boring Guy Scott, the data analyst. I liked next-door-neighbor Amanda, who meets Scott at 3 am on her fire escape with a baseball bat. Both Scott and Amanda are closet nerds, but want to rid themselves of this stigma by joining the secretive Players Club. However, I did not like The Players Club, a group of adrenaline-junkie rich guys and wannabe's. I felt like I was back in junior high, jockeying for position on the who's-the-coolest-in-the-hallway competition.

Amanda's got cool-nerd st
