After the paparazzi catches him in a compromising position, baseball bad boy Chad Gamble is issued an ultimatum: fake falling in love with the feisty redhead in the pictures, or kiss his multi-million dollar contract goodbye.

He’s a player on and off the field…

Chad Gamble, all-star pitcher for the Nationals, is one of the best players on—and off—the field. And right now, the notorious bad boy wants Bridget Rodgers. But with her lush curves and snappy comebacks, the feisty redhead is the kind of woman a man wants to settle down with…and that’s the last thing Chad needs.

When the paparazzi catch them in a compromising position, Chad’s manager issues an ultimatum: clean up his act or kiss his multi-million dollar contract goodbye. To save his career, his meddling publicist says he’ll have to convince everyone Bridget isn’t just his flavor of the week, but his girlfriend.

Being blackmailed into a fake relationship with Chad Gamble isn’t easy, especially when the sizzling physical attraction between them is undeniable. With a month to go on their arranged pretense, it’s going to take every ounce of willpower they have not to fall into bed together…or in love.

3.5 - "Guys like him didn't date girls like her." Stars!

Tempting the Player is written in J. Lynn’s usual style, an easy
going ‘comfort’ read, with likeable characters, and a simple to follow plot.

Chad definitely has a degree in dirty talking, and I liked Bridget’s quirkiness, she reminded me of... ...more

Addicted from the get go, this book had me at 'chapter one'.
I love how we get the POV from both leading characters. Chad the playboy handsome sportsman and loveable insecure Bridget.

“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 kn... ...more

The sequel to Tempting the Best Man does not disappoint. There is so much to love about this book it's hard to really pin-point where to begin.

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 u... ...more

Tempting the Player Review on K-Books

"I want to be worthy of you."

Oh. My. Holy. Hawtness. There are no words to describe how incredible amazing and HAWT this book is. It is not surprise to anyone how much I adore Jennifer L Armentrout, no matter what she writes, YA or Adult, Paranormal or Conte... ...more

By Sarah July 27, 2016

27/7 - I really liked Bridget and Chad together. I felt her suspicions over his motives for focusing on her were realistic and his straightforward replies that he liked her, wanted her, not the stick-thin models he was known for dating, was fantastic. I loved the ending, it was swoon-worthily rom... ...more

By Rachael October 27, 2012


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... ...more

I've been in a bit of a book funk lately, not fully satisfied from my choices. It was all this one's to short, this one's to long, this one has no sex, this one has to much sex. Yada Yada. But this one, this one is just RIGHT!!!! I loved it. All of it. Every single thing about it. I could not get... ...more

Is there anything Jennifer Armentrout can't spin into pure delectable greatness??!! I absolutely love this series, and she's once again proven that you can't keep her boxed into the "YA supernatural" label! This one gets a very happy 4.5 stars from me!!

Well, well, well. I knew J. Lynn had it in her. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Tempting the Best Man, but this one blew my panties right off! I simply did not want this story to end. I could have taken Chad ALL DAY LONG!

Bridget was awesome. I loved that she wasn't phased (that much) by Chad's... ...more

I was a huge fam of TEMPTING THE BEST MAN,so when I heard there would be a book featuring another Gamble brother, I was thrilled. And TEMPTING THE PLAYER did not dissapoint! J.

So, J. Lynn has done it again. HOLY HAWT HECK this book grabbed me right from the beginning and took me on the roller coaster ride that is the life of any Gamble brother! This installment of The Gamble Brothers was much more erotic and sensual than the first one, I have to say. It definitely left... ...more

This was a pretty fast read that had me wishing it was longer. I just couldn't get enough of Chad and Bridget (the publicist was annoying as heck, but she was good).

I loved the chemistry between them (and between Chad and Pepsi, the cat). I loved the ending, but I wish the story had extended furt... ...more

oh man, I love a book with a fake relationship that turns into more. This book is a continuation of the Gamble Brothers series.

I loved it! Great addition to the series. Chad was way hotter than Chase. It was sweet, steamy and fun. A nice quick read too :) Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I felt the ending was to abrupt. ...more
