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.
*AIEEEEEEEE* I swear these Gamble brothers know how to drive a woman crazy/insane with lust!!!
LOVED the story and CANNOT WAIT for the last Gamble brother to fall .... ...more
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.
This book had me melting from their first encounter. I was excited to read this book after thoroughly enjoying the... ...more
“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
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
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
Chad the sexy hometown baseball player and all around womanizer... Bridget the history girl with a mysterious past. You can bet the tension is alive and well in this one! ESR (easy sexy romantic) all the way... and you know I love my ESR books! ...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!!
Player is Chad's story, and I have to say I... ...more
Bridget Rodgers was out for a good time when her friend takes her to a private club she encounters Chad Gamble, the pro-ball player. Realizing he is her best friends fiancee's brother, Bridget keeps her knowledge to herself and embarks on a night of passion...in which Bridget makes a door dash, h... ...more
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. Lynn knows how to burn up the pages and I loved seeing Chad's progression from bad boy to bad boy with a sweet center. L... ...more
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
Another wonderful treat from J. Lynn, she didn't disappoint in this second book from those Gamble brothers. Great chemistry between Chad and Bridget and I love those HOT/STEAMY scenes and laughing out loud on some of those bickering dialog and funny scenes. Definitely my kind of book... ...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. Just when I thought I couldn't love one of the brothers more, I was introduced to Chad, and I fell instantly in love with him. I loved him and Bridget together!! Can't w... ...more
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
Ooooh ich hätte echt nicht so lange warten sollen das zu lesen... wieder einmal genial hab aber auch nichts anderes erwartet ...more
I know it's crazy to give books a 5 but this book deserves it just like Tempting the Best Man. I loved this second book from this author. I hope that she will be writing a third one to go with the last brother of the Gambles. I just couldn't put this book down just like the first one. It was a pa... ...more
