But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

Just when I felt like everything was falling apart, I'm beginning to wonder if maybe they were finally falling into place.

I have a mix of shattered, soulful, sweet, and swoon-filled tears in my eyes left from The Catch. My feels are still flying at full force. My emotions are still entwined around every bit of this book. This surprise of a story snuck up on me, throwing a HUGE CURVEBALL my way, and I LOVED EVERY FAST-FLYING MINUTE.

After just one chapter, my heart jumped, racing out

WOW!HOLY FREAKING WOW THIS BOOK!!!Talk about a story that will blow your mind away and I was totally blown away and right fucking now hours later and several re-reads.. Yes! I re-read it 3 fucking times because I want to relive the moment but still it felt like the first time I read this book. The feels I had never waned, instead I fell in love harder and harder each time. Gah! Kristy Bromberg, you are brilliant and yet again you never cease to amaze me! Kudos to you!!

GAH! Every time I pick up a K.Bromberg (aka Kristy Bromberg) novel, I’m reminded WHY I love her stories and writing SO MUCH and this story was no exception. I don’t know the last time I felt this much exhilaration after finishing a novel! Kristy Bromberg completely HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK! Everything, I say EVERYTHING, about this final installment to The Player duet was executed to perfection.

Well, can the follow up be just as good if not better than the first? The answer is YES! The Catch picks up right where The Player ended and after I picked my jaw up off the floor, I was able to dive in and enjoy all things Easton. If you waited to read because this was a duet, go now. One click and take the next two days off.


Not wanting to ruin anything, I will keep this short and sweet. Kristy did a phenomenal job with this duet. Both books balanced this surprised filled story in

Wow wow wow wow !!

Kristy's written all the words !!! And boy she did us proud :)
She blows my mind with what she comes up with but this is Bromberg at her finest!

Secrets & lies no matter how hard you try they always come out sooner or later.
It's then you find who was doing it to protect you or who was doing it to spite you.

GAHHHH! You guys, I am positively flaily and nearly buzzing from the afterglow of reading this book. This book that I literally could not put down for more than a few minutes at a time. This book that held me completely in thrall while Ms. Bromberg masterfully and cleverly unspun all the webs she’d woven for us in The Player. This book that sent my heart on some kind of rollercoaster ride as it pulsed with anticipation and excitement, and then fluttered happily with emotion and sweetness while S ...more

If you have read previous books written by Kristy then you will already be aware of how consuming reading her stories can be. This duet series definitely packs a punch and is right up there in my favourites of 2017.

So just to recap, at the end of The Player Easton and Scout are definitely falling for each other, he is well on the road to recovery and hopefully his place back on the team and she is hoping to secure a permanent contract but then it ended with a big cliffhanger and I was like WTF?!

I've been impatiently waiting for The Catch since I finished reading the last word in The Player. After that cliffhanger I was definitely expecting lots of dramatic moments (with, of course, a couple with off-the-charts chemistry) and Kristy delivered that and so much more!

➦I have a confession to make. I haven't actually read a single book by K. Bromberg that didn't reduce me to tears at the end. It happens EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

➦I just double checked, it's true, it's true. And this book right here is pretty angsty all the way through but I really wasn't prepared to kind of sort of bawl my eyes out at the end. They were happy(ish) tears too. K. Bromberg just knows how to pull on people's heartstrings, I tell ya!

The conclusion to Easton and Scout's story is not the expected.
They are tested.
They are forced to look deep within themselves and mature.
They are forced to face the unexpected and the known.

This book is full of twists and turns but more than anything, it will make you feel. Not just happiness or sadness or that butterflies in your tummy feeling . . . it will make you feel the whole gamut of emotions.

So let me tell you a story (not about this book). I read on the treadmill. This is how I get my reading time in. I run and read. I don't advise this with The Catch. At all. I probably cried for 50% of this book, and not because it was emotional and angsty--although there is some angst (DO NOT let that deter you)--but because it was emotional and heartfelt, and ALL THE GODDAMN FEELS. I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but K. Bromberg is a master of her craft. And if I haven't said this before

And right there- three simple fucking words and I'm a dead man. A total goner to this woman who is a mess of contradictions and who unexpectedly stole my heart along the way.

The much anticipated conclusion to The Player duet is finally here and boy was it a doozy. If possible, I actually enjoyed this book even more than the first one. Where the first book was more of a slower pace, this one was one quick paced twist after another.

What a fantastic, emotional and steaming HOT, roller coaster ride full of twists and turns!
Just when I thought K. Bromberg had shown us her best with The Player, here she goes blowing that up, and reaching the top of writing awesomeness with this conclusion of Easton and Scout's story!

The Catch brings us exactly to the point where The Player left of, and one major clusterfuck of a situation. No, I will not reveal anything about it, given this is a comple
This duet deserves the World Series championship title! Oh. My. Heart!! It could not be fuller than this. It's exploding with so much love for Scout and Easton. For this duet. For this entire tale. For all the ups and downs these two faced full-on. For all the challenges and bumps in the road they tackled and were able to survive together.

After the heart dropping conclusion in “The Player”, the only thing that was on my mind was getting some much awaited answers. For months I kept wondering how this story is going to play out an even though in the back of my mind I was sure everyone was going to get their own happily ever after, I was still a nervous wreck! If there was any couple that deserved happiness, it was these two. But you know what they say: The road to happiness isn’t paved with sunshine and roses.

And now in book #2 it seems that it wasn't Scout's fault and nobody else's either! It's the fault of the secret Easton's been keeping forever.

"The Catch" is the second book in the "Easton and Scout" Saga, as I called it. I read "The Player" and unfortunately I wasn't very enraptured by the story, maybe because I was not in the mood back then, or just because nothing felt new to me. Maybe after reading so many romantic stories nothing surprises you anymore and you just want something out of the ordinary to click for you.

This second book starts right after the events where the previous one ended. Secrets are out, decisions were made and now Easton and Scout not only have a public battle ahead of them, but their private lives aren’t getting any easier as well.
With Easton’s deadline getting closer and Scouts credibility on the line, their next move and whether they fight together will definitely affect their future and their careers.

The Catch is a curveball of angst, drama, more angst, raw emotions, passion and even more angst!!! Yes, this book was filled with lots of angst that will play with your heart and emotions but trust me when I tell you K. Bromberg will catch your fall. She will have you frustrated with Easton but in the end, you will be left satisfied with the tough choices they had to make and how they were able to overcome the hardships and secrets that

Cure to ending the dreadful reading slump = contemporary romance novels.

Shout out to the contemporary romance genre for never failing me. Tbh I've never been so appreciative of stumbling across this series. This series honestly made me feel like I was doing crack.

It was that addictive

What's even more addictive? Easton Wylder.

I was given this book for an honest and unbiased review.


Book 2 in the Player Duo, The Catch continues the story of Easton Wylder and Scout Dalton. Of course, the story has taken some unexpected turns and secrets have been revealed but there are more turns in this story than in a baseball diamond.
