Book Tour, Reviews & Giveaway: The Baller by VI Keeland

Meet Brody Easton in THE BALLER!
A standalone Contemporary Romance novel by 
New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Vi Keeland 

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room. 
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster. 
The famed quarterback decided to bare all. 
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. 
No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera. 
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me. 
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me. 
But I don’t date players. 
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football. 
I’d date an athlete. 
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date. 
You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid. 

Brody Easton was the ultimate player. 
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him. 
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for. 
Turned out, I was that girl. 
Simple right? 
Let’s face it. It never is. 
There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… 

And this one is ours. 

A new song had just started, and I was enjoying his company when a voice behind me said, “Can I cut in?” 

My head whipped around, even though I had no doubt whom the gravelly voice belonged to. 

Michael was gracious. “I hate to share. But I suppose I have been hogging the most beautiful woman at the event.” He let go of my hand and stepped back with a gentlemanly nod. “Thank you for the dance, Delilah.” 

Again Brody Easton had caught me off guard. Before I knew it, I was dancing with the arrogant jerk. He wrapped his arms around me and pulled my body tight against his. Way tighter than Michael had held me. 

“Good to see you again, Lois Lane.” 

The man had balls; I had to give him that. I looked him straight in the eyes. “Nice to see you with clothes on, Easton.” 

“Do you prefer me without?” 

“I prefer you on the other side of the room.” 

He chuckled. It was a hearty laugh. “That’s what happens sometimes when you decide you want to hang out in the men’s locker room.” 

I tried to pull back, but he tightened his grip and held me in place. I craned my neck. “Let go of me.” 



“That’s right. No.” 

“I can scream at the top of my lungs.” 

“I’d like to hear you scream.” His tone made it clear he meant he wanted me underneath him while I was doing the screaming. 

“You’re an asshole. You know that?” 

“I do. You asked me that yesterday. For a reporter, you should really try changing up your questions more frequently.” 

My eyes bulged. 

Easton shifted his hand down to the small of my back before twirling us around the dance floor. Figures the prick can dance. 

“Are you seeing anyone?” 

“You can’t be serious?” 

He ignored my comment. “Would you like to have dinner tonight?” 

“We just ate.” 

“Dessert at my place, then?” 

I couldn’t help but laugh. “Did you hit your head at the game yesterday?” 

“On a diet, huh?” 

“Yeah. That’s it. I don’t want to go to your place for dessert because I’m on a diet.” 

“Well, that’s just a shame.” 

The Baller is a new sexy down and dirty football novel by the fantastic VI Keeland! Sports romances are one of my favorite genres and this book was freaking fantastic! I would give this book a 4.5 stars and highly recommend to others. VI Keeland is one of my favorite authors as well, I have read almost all of her books and this one was no different she seriously knows how to write the best sexy scenes around! The humor that she brought to this story had me laughing quite a few times but there was also great seriousness as well.

Brody is a hotshot baseball player with a cocky attitude and he oozes crazy sex appeal. Deep down there is more to him and only one person knows that true person but she has been gone for many years and broke his heart along the way... So he doesn't do relationships he likes to keep things simple.. he only does the "sex" thing .. So when the new sports reporter Delilah comes into interview him for the first time in the locker room he doesn't expect the sparks to fly and he knows he needs this girl like he has ever needed anyone.

Delilah has worked hard to get where she is in her life and she doesn't have time in her life for a relationship, but on the other hand she doesn't do one night stands either... she is the type of girl who needs the heart and flowers .. but she doesn't mind some steamy hot sex either.

Go get this book and find out what happens... cause it is a whirlwind you don't wanna miss! Thanks for another great book and I can't wait for more!

Vi Keeland is one of my favorite authors and I jumped at the chance to read her latest release The Baller! Being a huge fan of this author and sports books in general had me turning each page feverously with a need to know what happens with the unlikely pair of Superstar Brody Easton and sports reporter Delilah Maddox. This book was a 4 star read for me and I highly recommend that you one click this awesome story!

Delilah Maddox has worked hard to earn her on air spot as staff football sportscaster despite what her male colleagues insinuate about how she got her job. Football has been a part of her life forever and she is no stranger to the ins and outs of the game.

Brody Easton has a reputation that precedes him, one where he has publicly announced that women do not belong in the locker room. When she walks up to Brody for her first on air interview and he drops his towel all bets are off when she can't keep her feisty personality from her on air report.

But when the tension between these two begins to ignite how it will pan out for the well known playboy and the girl who guards her heart with a brick wall? You will need to read this fantastic story to find out!!!

Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
