4.5 Stars
After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.

Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.

But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.

With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything Scouts love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle hes never been able to overcome. The secret hes never shared with anyone.

He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.

Do we all remember what happened at the end of book #1?
Scout was about to tell the team that Easton was ready to play again and then bam! Easton gets a call that he's been traded!!! WTH????
And now in book #2 it seems that it wasn't Scout's fault and nobody else's either! It's the fault of the secret Easton's been keeping forever.
And now that he's playing a few hours away in Dallas, Scout and Easton try everything to keep their young love alive!
But of course there are still secrets and mysteries left to uncover and family problems and ugh... it will take a while to get to that Happily Ever After ... if we'll get there at all!



I Loved it!!!

Finally back with Scout and Easton!
The end of book #1 was soooo grrrr!!!! ☺
And even though I suffer from Booksalzheimers, I remembered exactly how the last book ended! And that's why I was a bit confused why I was so confused with the beginning of book #2. It was all so very weird ... those first few chapters?! I didn't know who did what and who was at fault for what the hell happened? And what happened anyway???
Papers were signed and Easton is now playing for a different team!

I loved the story - I loved that we don't have 2 main characters who are fighting all through the book with the possibility of a HEA towards the end. Nope, we're only fighting a tiny little bit at the beginning and then we'll try to make this relationship work and we also try to make sense of everything that happened .... not an easy task!

I still don't love baseball and I never will. And we - again - have way too much baseball in this book! Ugh. Why? I don't get any of the word-games and references ... I wish american authors would release an alternative european edition of their baseball books - with a football player or a rockstar. ☺

And those two secrets that weren't really secrets, but the reader was made to think that they were supposed to be secrets. You know what I mean? Probably not. I know I'm weird! ☺
They should've been a secret for a bit longer - no - not longer, but better hidden! The reader immediately knows what Easton's secret is and we also know what the deal with Santiago is. It should've been a better kept secret somehow.

BUT - I really loved Easton and Scout! It was an amazing lovestory!
With lots of sexy times, mysterious moments, exciting and frustrating moments, sad & moving moments.
Great sports romance!

THE CATCH was the perfect finale in this adorable Baseball Romance Duet! Lots of sweet, romantic, sexy, exciting & moving moments! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Easton Wylder - this one is MINE!!! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

You will need to have read book 1, The Player before picking up The Catch as the story continues on where book 1 ended.

And where book one ended - Not Happy, Jan!

I was so happy to dive back into the world of the Aces, Scout and Easton.

And The Catch was just the conclusion that I needed, that Scout and Easton needed.

Once again Ms Bromberg has given us characters that you can't help but fall in love with - well, most of them, there were a couple this time that I really, really disliked.

Me head, my heart, my emotions were all over the shop.  Just when I thought I knew everything that was happening in their world, we were thrown another curve ball that had me spinning.

I adored that through it all, Scout and Easton were together.  Through thick and thin.  Sure, there was a little drama at the beginning, but it did not continue through the whole book - yay for  that!

I laughed, I cried, I got so mad I wanted to throw my kindle across the room.  Thank you Ms Bromberg that brought out all the emotions.

I can't wait to see what you bring us next.


Book #1


...if you haven't read any of Kristy's #Driven books yet - start with the first one NOW!!!!

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.
She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.
On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift (Releasing 10/4/16)), and a short story titled UnRaveled. She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out at the end of 2016.
Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (The Player (#1) and The Catch (#2)) and the Everyday Heroes series (Cuffed (#1), Combust (#2), and Cockpit (#3). She also published a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
