    3.75-4 starsThis was a very cute, very decent sports romance...That said, this about sums it up beyond that:In other words, by next week, I fully expect to have forgotten practically everything about this book, with the exception of two things that really irkedstuck out to me:1) As I said in a status update, one of the main characters here, Marlene, watches The Price is Right (every day apparently). For those who don't know what that is, it's a f...

    4 ~ 4.5 STARS "I am sort of irresistible." This is my first book by this author and I have say that the humor and chemistry was spot on fantastic. I even loved the backgrounds on both characters and of course sweet Marlene. I somewhat struggled when I got through the biggest hurdle in the story only to find that the heroine needed to let go of her past further and of course the addition of another character's POV into the story didn't thrill me e...

    4.5 Stars!!“The Baller” was such an enjoyable read! It was funny, sexy and pure and simple awesome. Needless to say I enjoyed the heck out of it. This book has a little bit of everything and exactly what I usually enjoy – fantastic characters, entertaining dialogue, a lovely romance and a great storyline. That being said, I have to admit I was a little reluctant to start this one since my first experience with this author was a bust. So, ye...

It was about making the choice to live life with all it’s chaos around you, and in the midst of it all, having calm in your heart.” I saw this hot cover and the author’s name and I didn’t even have to think twice or even read the blurb to know I will love it and I was right I am totally fangirling.

    2.5 to 3 stars!To be fair, I did enjoy this book. At least some parts of it. But there were a few things that really bothered me and it just ruined the whole book for me. And what made me even more upset is that it was so unnecessary. But I'm getting ahead of myself.Delilah is a newly minted sportscaster tasked with the plum job of interviewing the players of New York Steel football team. Brody Easton is the quarterback. He's cocky, arrogant and ...

    2 Confused Stars. Delilah is a sports reporter that in one of her jobs had to interview the players of a big football team in the locker rooms after the game. There she meets Brody, he’s sexy, obviously but she doesn’t date players, the metaphorical ones, not the actual athletes. Until Brody makes sure he changes her mind… but what Brody didn’t expect is that while he was convincing her not to resist him, he was unwillingly falling for he...

    "Brody Easton, the man who'd entered my life like a storm, had turned out to be my calm. How was that for irony?" 3.5 StarsWhat can I say? This book was a guilty-pleasure read yet at the same time it was overloaded with angst and so much more.The Baller tells the story of Delilah Maddox, a football sportscaster of World Media Broadcasting and Brody Easton, quarterback of New York Steel. These two met when Delilah interviewed Brody at the locker ...

    I love this Author but this one fell a bit short for me,it was just too bloody predictable.Hot,sexy,dirty talking Guy....checkHot,drop dead gorgeous girl....checkThey skirt around each other.....he doesn't want a relationship,she doesn't just want sex.....add into the mix a beautiful ex with issues and I could totally see where this was going and I found myself skimming and didn't even finish it.I think,again,it's a case of a popular book just no...
  • Stacey is Sassy
    The dirty talker can sweet talk too.I've decided after reading The Baller that Brody should be our first cloning candidate. I really, really like him. The Brody is a smart bloke and knows how to get people on his side. A smile and a compliment to the ladies, a pat on the back and man talk for the lads. The Brody doesn't talk down to kids and is respectful to the older generation. There's a slight malfunction that might need to get tweaked in the ...

    As soon as I saw my friends going on about Brody Easton, I knew I had to start this one ASAP! So first chance I got I jumped in. This book is definitely hot, fun and sexy, but I did like how there was more to Brody. Brody isn’t your typical star quarterback, he is this absolutely fantastic guy with a huge heart. I can see why everyone is drawn to Easton. Hell, I was all about some Easton while reading. The back story added so much heart to the ...

    4 "Brody, Brody, Brody!" STARSI had so much fun reading this with Maida. Let's just start by saying that I (sorry forgot to share) we LOVED Brody. Seriously, what's not to love about a sexy-as-f*ck athlete with the swagger, attitude and charm to boot! There's a locker room scene early on in the book that was just priceless! Boy, what this girl would have done to be there! Delilah Maddox, professional sportscaster and Brody Easton, famed quarter...

    3.75 "Available or taken?" Stars! I was so excited, SO FREAKING EXCITED about this book. I love Vi Keeland and her stories but I am sorry to say this was not what I was expecting. The Baller is a sports stand-alone novel that tells the story of Brody Easton (a very famous football player, a man who has become a playboy after some stuff that happened in his past and now a cocky man who drops the towel around his waist everytime the heroine tries t...
  • XxTainaxX
    By the end of chapter one, Brody's antics had me cracking up. He is cocky, smartass, and hilarious. Toss in sexy as hell and he's the full package. I love how his relationship with Delilah grows and develops. His relationship with Marlene, an elderly woman, and others at her group home, is very sweet and adds to his appeal. The one thing that took some of the story's impact was how he dealt with his ex. I won't spoil but I'll state that it takes ...

    Find all of my reviews at: Baller popped up on my radar screen due to Casey (along with her merry band of perverts) reading a different Vi Keeland book . . . but referencing this one in the review. This just so happened to be the only Keeland story my library had available for request (for shame, porny librarian – you are failing here!). It also had a cover that pert near guar-an-teed an education regarding...

I liked the main characters - Delilah Maddox, a football sports TV presenter of World Media Broadcasting and Brody Easton, quarterback of New York Steel.

    4.5 Cocky Stars! I'm so happy that I finally found a good book! I couldn't put this down once I started it! Loved it! Delilah and Brody were awesome together! Delilah is a journalist. Her first time in the Steels locker room is going to be a piece of cake. She's ready for anything except for Brody the sexy, cocky, dirty talking quarterback for the Steels. I loved him right away. He's in a towel and he has a subway under it. Bahahahahaha!! Yes peo...

    3.5 When Good...Really Good Stars * * * I experienced Vi Keeland with the book, Worth the Fight, the MMA series. I loved it. It was direct, sassy and had a man who knew when the woman across the way was looking at him and wanting every thing his creative dirty mind wanted to do to her. It was a delicious read.At first, it seemed The Baller was on its way to captivating my imagination with Star Quarterback ...

    2 starsSo sorry guys this one was another miss for me. I'm surprised I actually finished it. I was going to dnf it, then I picked it back up and it did get slightly better.But halfway through the book I started to get really mad and I think those who read the book know what I'm talking about!!! Ugh!!! The only reason I didn't rate 1 star is because I thought some of the dialogue was quite cute and fun. I think Brody will be a big hit with some re...
  • Christie«SHBBblogger»
    It looks like I'm going to be the odd one out on this one. I really struggled with it. I'm giving it two stars, not because I hated it, which is what is perceived with a two star rating a lot of times. According to goodreads, two stars is stating that it was "okay". And that's how I would classify this book. Not bad, but I just wasn't feeling invested in the characters much and fought the urge to skim around halfway through. I put it down briefly...
  • Dilek VT
    Well, it was a very fun read, actually. I really laughed out loud and had a great time reading it. It is as hot as it is funny. There is a bit of a drama and angst due to the people from their past but no big deal. The story is told from 3 points of view: The hero's, the heroine's and the point of view of the other woman from the hero's past. There is no cheating with the other woman. You feel the chemistry of MCs spread all over the pages so str...
  • NMmomof4
    3 StarsOverall Opinion: I'm kind of bummed with this one. There were so many OW issues that I would even say it was close to a love-triangle story (and we even get the OW's POV several times). I wasn't expecting that AT ALL!! The story was going great, and then BAM the woman comes into play, and I felt like it was a totally different story. We had the H interacting with the OW and the OW's own POV so much that it made me lose the feeling of the ...

    ¡Me encantó! 😍❤😍No esperaba nada de esta lectura, últimamente traía un bajón literario que ni yo entendía pero este libro me devolvió la fe. En primer lugar debo aclarar que no conocía a la autora de nada. Esta novela la vi por mera casualidad y como amo locamente los libros con protagonistas que son atletas o deportistas me la apunte enseguida. Ni siquiera había leído reseñas antes (lo cual es muy raro en mi) simplemente me za...
  • Amy (Foxy)
    SIGN ME up to interview Brody Easton!!The man dropped his towel when sports reporter, Delilah, interviewed him in the locker room. The dropping of his towel to cause her to feel uncomfortable is just the grown up version of playground tactics by little boys who pull the girl's pigtails when they like them. The banter back and forth between these two was fun to read. Delilah made it clear she wasn't going to fall for his player ways. Even though t...
