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.
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.
When I first started reading The Baller I was not in a good mood and I was working out walking on a treadmill at the gym. My bad mood quickly was replaced with me laughing out loud, having to stop periodically because I was laughing too hard to walk or read until I could get myself under control. I am well aware that the people next to me most likely thought I was a crazy person who had just lost my mind but I didn’t care because it was worth it.
Brody, oh my oh my Brody can melt the panties off of any woman and he not only knows it he uses it to his advantage at times. Delilah is a female sports reporter who has grown up with the football lifestyle, her father was a former player so she knows her stuff. When she has to interview Brody for the first time let’s just say she wasn’t shy about being naked during his interview. These two go back and forth and it’s a form or foreplay with them. Brody wants Delilah, Delilah doesn’t want Brody, or does she? As the two get closer there are some very serious, angst filled, emotional scenes that I didn’t except at first with how the book began. When someone from Brody’s past comes back into his life you can’t help but wonder what will happen especially when she wants Brody back. Personally I wanted to push her off a cliff and I even messaged Ms. Keeland with those very thoughts and a couple others. I prayed that Brody wouldn’t hurt Delilah like it looked like he was heading to do, these two were meant to be together.
In my opinion The Baller is the best book from Vi Keeland yet. She was able to balance out the humor, the sexiness and the serious issues that were raised perfectly. She showed that you can have a book full of humor and life events that are not a laughing matter and still make a story that will leave you not only with a smile on your face but also wiping a few sad tears away from your eyes at the same time. The Baller is a must read in my opinion and one you won’t want to wait to start.

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.”
