Rie Warren has done it to me again! I've been a fan of hers for awhile now. I loved the first 2 books of this series. This is the third and final of the series and for me Rie saved the best for last!

Calder Malone was in love once. But, then his brother married her. Calder was at the top of his game and then his brother passed away in the service. Calder spiraled out of control. Drugs, alcohol and women were what he used as a distraction. Until he almost lost his footb

Damn you, Calder Malone. You insinuated yourself under my skin and into my heart very early in the Bad Boy Ballers series and I was waiting (im)patiently for your story. And holy moly, what a tale you had to tell.

You’re an amazing man. A ridiculously talented athlete. And an awesome human being. Yes, a human being with a heart—one that bleeds from the pain of loving someone so much and holds onto the grief and guilt. You’re determined to make things right—and damn, you try so hard to your own d
This is the first time I have read this author and I really enjoyed this sports romance. For me though it was also a second chance at love story, an unrequited love story and a story that love can heal broken hearts and souls. The story of two brothers and a woman they both loved. This book can be read as a standalone, I had no problems not reading the previous two books in the series.

I absolutely loved Calder and Reggie! Their story will break your heart and then put it back together again. Th

I must say, why have I waited so long? Baller Made was my first glimpse at the work of Rie Warren. Calder has been in love with Reggie ever since they were kids. Reggie loved Calder but her first romantic love was Calder's younger brother Chris. Chris married Reggie but his first love was the United States Air Force. Chris lost his life doing what he loved but left behind a young widow and a load of guilt on the shoulders of his brother. Calder turned his guilt to drugs and liquor and almost los ...more

This is the third book in the series and it could certainly be read as a standalone. It was the perfect ending for the Bad Boy Baller series. Calder is not just super hot and a fan favorite, but he has a heart of gold and a nagging conscious. He might have loved Reggie first, but the girl of his dreams married his brother, Chris. For that reason alone, she is off limits, even after Chris' war-time death. That doesn't make him crave her any less. To ease his grief, he turns to drugs and nearly lo ...more

While I love, love, love Rafe and Brooks' story (the first two books in this series), I think Calder just came out on hem...oops...see what I did there? LOL The feels in this book are phenomenal <3

Anyway, as I was saying, I love Calder and Reggie's story, broken hearts need mending and the mountains they needed to climb to make that happen were daunting. I was moved to tears at Calder's sense of loyalty to his brother's memory and his internal struggle with his feelings for Reggie, but

I loved Calder and Reggie’s story and getting another snippet at the end into the lives of Rafe, Peyton, Brooks and Delaney was an added bonus!

Calder and Reggie grew up together, he has always loved her but she ended up marrying his brother. When Chris, Calder’s brother died serving his country Calder spiralled into drink and drugs, he has finally come out the other side stronger but his relationship with Reggie and his family suffered.

Calder had his life spiral out of control, but has been doing everything to get it under control and get his career back on track. He does everything he can to prove to his new team, the Carolina Crush, that he's worth the risk they took on him. His career is going good. His personal life...not so much.

Reggie was Calder's childhood best friend. He wanted more, but was too shy to ever go there. Unfortunately his

Wow, what a send-off!!! This was the perfect way to sign off from what has been a fabulous series.
Reggie has always been a part of Malone brothers lives, first as their friend and eventually as partner and wife of Chris.
Calder hid his feeling for her from his brother and watched as the two most important people in his life set out on a future together, one that they hoped would have it all but that in the end was so cruelly cut short not emotionally by the time they spent apart but eve

Book 3 of the Bad Boy Ballers series, though the main story holds up well read as a standalone, I'd say reading the series in order is going to give you the best experience. Additionally, there's an epilogue that has a section devoted to the couple from each of the three books, so that's going to be a lot more meaningful if you've read all three books.

I liked the way the way Calder and Reggie have so much in common here: Calder, a football center, has be

I loved that series epilogue it was great to tie all the loose ends together and see the beautiful families being created. Rafe , Brooks and Calder were some seriously hot alpha men and I truly enjoyed their individual stories and how they came together as a team/family to achieve so many goals and happiness all around.

Can I just say right now how much I am going to miss these guys? I mean seriously, if you haven't read this series yet then stop whatever you are doing and do so. This book can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading them all, you won't be disappointed in the slightest, in fact you may even be thankful. This series is one of my all time favorite sports romance and Calder has won over my heart.

Rie Warren with her brilliant writing style did it again! I've said this more than once, but it doesn't make it less true, Baller Made is now my new favorite! And I even forgive her for the little slights to my beloved Denver team! Calder Malone is the black sheep of the NFL, and not for staging protests on the sidelines, but for bad drug usage. He's gotten off of them, and made a new beginning with a new team, however, that doesn't change the pain level that he still carries around, but he's de ...more

Calder and Reggie's story is a very complicated one.

Calder's brother Chris was married to Reggie (Regina). However, Calder has always loved Reggie. They have been friends since they were young, living next door to each other. It just happens that Chris got there first. However, after Chris is KIA overseas Calder looses it. He turns to drugs to help ease the pain he feels from losing his brother.

Great Sports Romance

Written in true Rie Warren style, Baller Made is a second chance story about the one who sort of got away. Since being childhood friends, both Calder and Reggie hid their feelings for each other until it seemed like it was too late. Then tragedy strikes, hitting them both hard - taking away Calder's brother and making Reggie a way too young widow. When circumstances put them in the same town, it leads to realizations, opportunities, and some pretty intense moments.

What happens? Things get interesting the night after the game when Coach D takes the team to the Venetian for a show. Who is there? What happens?

Baller Made is the story of Reggie and Calder Malone. Finally, we get to know why Calder got all messed up with the drugs and alcohol while he was playing for the Ravens. And oh man, oh man, who could blame him. Really,

I received this advanced copy of Baller Made for an honest review through the Crazy Cajun Book Addicts.

This is a must read romance book it's perfectly put together with an Calder an NFL star and Reggie the sexy sleek stripper, both bought together through tragedy of her military husband and his brother.

Reggie's always loved Calder as well as his late brother Chris but knows she needs to distance herself from Calder who went off the rails whilst suffering through his grief and leaving his family

Saving the best for last… "Baller Made," the final book in Rie Warren's "Bad Boy Ballers" series is arguably the most heart wrenching in all of her written works so far. If you don't agree, it is a tearjerker to say the least.

A story of redemption and of familial love, "Baller Made" follows footballer Calder Malone and Las Vegas showgirl Reggie. It's a love that shouldn't have been. But, it was there. And with the history they share plus the baggage they carry, finding their happily ever after

This is Calder and Reggie’s story, and what an amazing one it is! Calder is determined to prove to his family and team that he is a different person from what he used to be. Reggie is just as determined to draw Calder out of the dark and into the light. These two are perfect for each other. This storyline is emotional, with drama, and hot sex. I love this whole series, but this one is definitely my favourite!
This is a beautiful and heartfelt story which is well written by this talented author.

Wow what a moving third installment. Calder Malone was not only a comeback kid with the Carolina Crush he is also struggling with demons that make him beautifully vulnerable. I just wanted to jump through the pages and give him a big hug. Calder didn't need me though because he had Vegas dancer Reggie in his corner. Their connection ran deep but there were lots of hurdles to jump.
