"Why do you say things like that?"
He shrugged. "Because it's true. If I could do anything I wanted on a day off, I'd do... you."

Sweet mother of cocky, arrogant, dirty talking book boyfriends. Brody 'The Subway' Easton (the sandwich.... for reasons you can guess) has a reputation for starting trouble with female reporters. Delilah thinks she can handle the trouble that he dishes, but when he drops his towel during their first interview, one thing is for sure.... she has her work cut out for her.

We soon learn that all you see isn't all you get with Brody. Past that tough exterior is a guy with a huge heart. He has demons just like everyone else. Delilah wants to let Brody into her heart, but she has skeletons in her closet as well.

"I'm like fungus, I grow on you."

Once I started reading this, I couldn't put it down. Brody has no brain to mouth filter and just says whatever pops into his head.

"You said liquor and all I heard was 'lick her'."

He really does grow on you. His filthy mouth is just the icing on the cake, as far as I'm concerned. You never have to guess with him. Then he meets his match in Delilah. She doesn't immediately fall for his charm, which is shocking to him. He has stalkers.... uhm, 'fans'.... and could have his pick of any female. He. wants. Delilah.

"...I finally realized peace wasn't about avoiding things. It was about making the choice to live life with all its chaos around you, and in the midst of it all, having calm in your heart."

I wasn't at all expecting the emotional parts towards the last third of the book. It really helped round out the story and made me love it that much more (let's be honest, it isn't possible to love Brody any more).

If you think this is just a book about a cocky football player... you are completely wrong. It's so much more....

Review for Ramblings From This Chick.

I have to admit that my feelings are a bit all over the place after finishing The Baller by Vi Keeland. I have never felt so torn after reading one of her books as I do here. On the one hand, there were parts of this book that I absolutely loved and of course there is Brody himself! But on the other, there were some things that I really struggled with in this story and those kept me from being able to love the book as a whole.

Delilah Maddox has just landed her first job as a professional sportscaster when she interviews famed quarterback Brody Easton. He has a reputation for hating women in the locker room and she knows that he is bound to be anything but friendly. But when he drops his towel as she is interviewing him and starts talking to her in innuendos, she knows that it will be worse than she first thought. Brody makes it known the second she pushes back that not only does he want to screw with her, but that he would like to screw her as well. Delilah lets him know that she has no interest in players, and she doesn't mean that as far as athletes. Soon Delilah and Brody strike up a friendship and things get easier between them. That is until Brody makes it his mission to get her to go out with him. Delilah refuses to give in when she knows that all he wants is the chase and not to actually catch her. But when Brody tells her that he is willing to give something between them a real shot, can she let go of her fears and let him in enough to see if they could have something together?

The one thing that I didn't struggle with at all here was Delilah or Brody. I really liked them both. They each had things in their past that were similar and had changed them in different ways.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started reading The Baller, I knew it was a sports romance and that most likely the male main character would be an arrogant alpha male. It had those things as well as so much more which I've come to notice is a Vi Keeland trend. She writes beautifully flawed but strong characters. Characters that are dealing with some heavy emotional baggage but that strive to succeed through it and not let it pull them down. I could go on and on and on about how sexy, confident, funny Brody Easton is but I'm sure you've all read that in the majority of the reviews. He is all of those things and so much more as is the female main character Delilha. Delilah is a strong, confident successful woman doing everything she can to make a name for herself in a male dominated profession and she is doing it well. The fireworks between these two characters was off the charts and I couldn't get enough!

I'm going to be one of the few people that didn't love this one. I actually considered dnf'ing it, but pressed on in hopes that it would improve. It did for a few chapters, but took a nosedive early on for me. This was surprising considering the rave reviews and the #1 placement.

***Mild spoilers ahead

The author gave us a strong heroine and a hot, cocky hero, but I never really felt their connection beyond the physical. Truly, I didn't understand why Delilah could've fallen so hard and so fast for a guy whose actions consisted of sending her creative and thoughtful gifts on 2 occasions but constantly texted her suggestive comments and seemed to just want in her pants. Likewise, Brody seemed more bonded to someone else, which brings me to...

You throw in the pov of his ex?? What was that about? This pov made me feel the angst that was intended to bond you more to the plot, but I lost any connection between Brody and Delilah as well. It ruined it for me even more than the lack of substance that created their baseless relationship. The good stuff such as their long conversations during dates was rushed and glossed over. I just didn't get it. There was also a lack of character description that kept me from being able to imagine this book playing out in my mind. I needed more of everything. It just felt too vague. This one unfortunately didn't deliver for me.
