Before I even started reading this book, I had a huge smile on my face! I mean the blurb people! Shenanigans running amok I say! Who doesn’t want to read a feel-good story like that?!?! Well, the reality did not disappoint my expectations!!

I won’t say that the story was just one huge comedic relief session, because it was not, but it also was not angst driven. Yes, it had its drama moments, but not angst. So really, the drama was more just part of a conflict and all stories have conflict. I enjo

Lead The player brings a pleasant, sweet and sexy story to read, and although it is not my favorite by the author it still brings a good story.Enzo and Alaina have good chemistry and their attraction is palpable in the book, but for me there was something missing in their relationship together, perhaps because it was a short book, their development as a couple left something to be desired.I liked the friendship of Alaina and her friends, they brought humor and camaraderie to the book whic

I have to admit I haven't read any of K.Bromberg's books so I was unfamiliar with the world that this Everyday Heroes was set in. I have now added her to my list to read and catch-up on her books. I was drawn to this book by the hunky rockstar on the cover and I also liked the sound of the blurb. The book starts at a bar where our main female lead Alaina is out with her friends looking for a hunky guy to have a one night stand with- no strings attached. She spots a hot guy at the other end of th ...more
Karen's Utterly Unashamed
Coming off Forevermore and Everlast I had ridiculous expectations for this book. Now, it was good don't get me wrong. It had a lot going for it. Rock star, one night stand turns lasting, a oopsie baby, a little crazy stalker action, some great friends, steamy sex scenes, and a good story. Really the only thing that was missing for me was "feels".

I liked Alaina and Enzo but I wanted more from their chemistry. It was insta lust, insta love which I'm fine with but I wanted it to grow deeper.

I loved it. It wasn’t your typical rock star read and the characters were easy to connect with. It was a fairly easy read and while there was drama, I loved seeing the characters evolve and accept each other. Yeah, Enzo had his issues from his past but Alaina was understanding of it. I haven’t read that the books that this world steamed from but I plan too if they are as great as this one. I don’t want to give too much away but it was an each read with some chuckles along the way. The main chara ...more

I was so excited to see this author was gonna write a story in The Everyday Heroes World as I’m a big fan of her writing.

Alaina is a very likeable character. A night out looking for a one night stand leads to more than what she expected when she meets the hot and sexy Enzo.

I absolutely loved this story. It’s a well written story that I ended up reading In one sitting. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

When Alaina has a hot night with a gorgeous man, she's disappointed when he sneaks out the next morning without a word. But she gets over it and moves on. But you can imagine her surprise (and displeasure) when her best friend's fiancé's best friend and best man turns out to be her one night. Only he has a different name and she comes to find out he's actually a famous rockstar. Yeah, she knew he looked familiar but couldn't place him. Now she knows and it makes h

Perfect Player! 🔥

I kept seeing this book everywhere and added it to my TBR list right away. I couldn't help myself! That hot, beautiful cover sealed the deal, along with the very intriguing teaser. Now that I've had the pleasure of reading it, I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and was sorry to see it end.

A beautiful woman glances around the bar she's been hanging out in with her best friends and locks eyes with a gorgeous guy and he's definitely looking back. Smoldering back, r

4 Star Review Lead Player by Alex Grayson

Alex Grayson is a new author to me. This was a fun and entertaining read that kept me invested form the first to the last chapter.

What happens when a hot one night stand sudden;y reappears? That is the position Alaina aka Eve finds herself in when the best man at her best friends wedding turns out to be Taylor aka Enzo, a man she had a hot and passionate night with.

The banter between them was fun and the chemistry between them sizzled. There was some d

Alaina is on the prowl, she is looking for a quick one night release and she finds it in the sexy stranger across the bar. They share an amazing night together where both understand that is all it will ever be. Alaina is shocked when she runs into her sexy stranger again because her sexy stranger isn't such a stranger. Enzo, the sexy stranger, is actually best friends with Alaina's best friends's fiance and the lead guitarist for a famous rock band. Not only is she surprised to see him and that ...more

Predictable But Enjoyable

I’d probably give this book 3.5 🌟 if I could.

I decided to have a dip into the Everyday Heroes World books and try some of the novels by authors I’d not come across before. As I was enjoying some rock star books at the moment I decided to try this one.

I like the concept of Enzo being the lead guitarist and main songwriter for a rock band and wanting to leave because touring was miserable. Basically the novel is set at a time of change for someone who has been living life

4.5 Stars for Lead Player (The Everyday Heroes World)
This is the first book I have read by Alex Grayson and it certainly won’t be the last, in fact I’m left wondering why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now because if Lead Player is anything to go by I’m going to love playing catch up on her previous books.
If you have read Cuffed, Combat and Cuffed you will already met the Malone brothers and we get to meet them all over again as Ms Grayson joins K.Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes World.

This is a cute little read, sexy and fun with a nice amount of emotion. It’s part of K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes world, which I haven’t read, and this can easily be read as a standalone.

Alaina has had seriously bad luck with men and is on the prowl for a hot one night stand, and she gets it when she eyes a sexy stranger at a bar, they share some intense eye-fucking, and she takes him home for a night of mind-blowing sex. Though they agreed it would be one night only, Alaina is hurt w

I'm going to premise this with the fact that I have not read any of The Everyday Heroes World of K. Bromberg's and I also have not read Alex Grayson before. So, it was a fresh new world and I don't think I needed any of them to like (or not like) this book. It was an enjoyable and sexy book with a little drama thrown in for good measure.

Alaina and her girlfriends are out for a night of fun and are looking for some fresh meat. Alaina has not been lucky in the man department for the last year so s

When I read the blurb for Lead Player, I knew I had to have this book in my hands. I am ashamed to say I haven't read anything by this author, so I didn't know anything about this authors writing style, so in a way I went in blind. I should start off by saying, this book started off with a bang and I became invested within a few pages. It also took me no time to finish this one because it's not that of a big of a book.

I did enjoy the overall concept of the story. Do I think it could have been b

A Quick Read With a Little Bit of Everything

Alex Grayson gives her readers a quick little diddy with so much angst, sexy and action it leaves your head spinning. This novella was perfect timing for me, as I wanted something to read, but didn't want the huge commitment.

Usually not a fan of insta-love, the blurb plainly states this was a one night stand, so I really wasn't surprised. Enzo and Alaina were both strong lead characters, so it was a treat to see how they were going to work things out.

Ok, so I read this book at the perfect time. I was looking through my books, trying to see which ones I wanted to read next. I was hoping for something along the lines of a rockstar/celebrity romance because I am always a fan of them! I found this little gem tucked behind a couple other books on my kindle shelf and immediately started to read.

I really liked the beginning of the book. however I felt like it was a little fast paced. The second main character (H) is known as a ladies man, but with

This is my first Alex Grayson read and I was not disappointed. I read it, I loved it. The plot flowed smoothly from start to finish…what was meant to be a one-night stand becomes so much more. Little did Enzo and Alaina know they would meet again through mutual friends. Enzo’s reputation proceeds him and he has an uphill battle convincing Alaina to take a chance on him. Grayson does a great job of weaving a story that details the progression of their relationship, which like most good love stori ...more

Lead player is an engaging and sweet romance. It is part of K.Bromberg’s Every Day Hero World.
The book starts off with some amazing flirting and chemistry. I was engaged from the beginning! I loved the passion and steam that Alaina and Enzo give us. Enzo and Alaina seem to be very complex characters and I would have really liked to have gotten to know them more. Their relationship has lots of passion. But have some baggage and it was interesting to see how that all effected their relationships.

Lead Player started out hot. Alaina has had some bad luck in relationships, so she’s just looking for one hot night. And behold, she meets Enzo. But both give fake names; Alaina because she wants this to be one night only, and Enzo because he’s trying to hide his fame. You see….Enzo is a musician who has become tired of the fame and is back in his hometown looking for some calm.

After their one sizzling night, Alaina never expects to see him again. Jokes on her because her one night stand ends up

I have to be completely honest here. I am not familiar with K Bromberg and The Everyday Hero world. I know, shame on me. Having not read this world before, all of the characters were new. It added a fresh take on a world making it seem like a brand-new world for me and I liked that. The main reason that I was intrigued by this book was because of the author, the blurb, and the cover model (huge fan of his).

The start of this book started really hot. HOT is actually an understatement. I loved the

YYYEEESSSS!!!! I am going to admit that I have read a string of books the past few weeks that started out solid and ended with me wishing I hadn’t ever started them – this is NOT ONE OF THOSE. Thank you, Alex Grayson, for writing something fun to read from start to finish! I needed something HOT and playful and a good summer read, and this git that bill perfectly.

I'm so in love with Lead Player. By the time I finished this one I had a huge smile on my face. I love what Alex Grayson brings to The Everyday Heroes World. Enzo will just melt you panties and make you swoon. Aliana is just so sweet. You feel their attraction from the very start and it is so hot. You get why Aliana is cautious when it comes to Enzo and the life he once lead. You will giggle just a little when it comes Aliana and her girls. And yes there will be a few times you want to yell at E ...more

Omg what an amazing read!!! I love K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes series & this book compliments them perfectly!! A one night stand that she can’t get rid of, but does she really want to??? If I was her I wouldn’t. Enzo comes off as an arrogant player, but he has grown up & is really looking for more. Alaina is extremely stubborn & when she keeps seeing Enzo she doesn’t want to give in.

Lead Player is a story that grips you right from the very start. A story that is like the beat to your heart, the words are like a beautiful love song and the journey is like an enchanting rhythm. Enzo and Alaina’s story was supposed to be just scratching an itch, but when their thoughts are consumed by each other and fate plays a part, one night might just not be enough. An emotional story that is angsty, passionate, witty and seriously sexy. A captivating addition to the Everyday Heroes World ...more
How would you feel if your sexy one night stand shows up to be the best man for your best friends wedding? AWKWARD. The story line between Alaina and Enzo is HOT HOT HOT. Once Alaina figures out who Enzo is, she wants NOTHING to do with him and tries to hide her feelings. Unfortunately, (swoon alert), Enzo has his eyes on the prize and is willing to take any measures for her. As the story started developing, I kept thinking oh man this is going to get crazy when two different arcs came into play ...more

Alex Grayson is hands down one of my favorite authors, so when I found out she was writing a novel for the Every Day Heroes World, I knew I had to get my hands on it as soon as I could!
