“Life is short. We’re only here to chase moments. I’d rather make those moments worthwhile.”
Claire Contreras, cheers to you! This book was awesome!
The Player is about Warren, a talented soccer star who plays in the United Kingdom. He comes to New York on vacation and on family business where he meets Camila. Camila is from a family that fell from grace and she took it hard. Now she works for a non profit and can’t afford much, but she works hard and knows what she wants in life.
Warren is used to women falling all over him based on his looks and celebrity status. So when he pursues Camila and is shot down, he’s genuinely surprised, but still eager to go out with her. Camila is unsure of Warren, his fame and his fortune. She doesn’t want to tame the player, she’s tried that before and failed. But there’s something drawing them together, and they can only fight the attraction for so long.
“If you're at the other end of the chase, it would be impossible for me to be disappointed.”
I honestly was hesitant to go into this book, and yet at the same time I was intrigued. I’m not a big fan of the whole hot guy cover trend, and was worried this book was going to be all hot and no plot. That wasn’t the case here, we got a sweet and touching story with some very emotional and poignant moments thrown in.
This book pulled and yanked at all my emotions, at first it was hard to think a player like Warren was serious about Camila, but as the book went on I found myself a believer in change. There’s always something thrilling about seeing the player settle down, and I loved the way Warren fell for Camila. The attraction between the two of them was so charged, you could feel it coming off of the page.
I loved Camila as a heroine, she was quiet yet strong. She had to work hard for what she had and didn’t back down easily. She was also cautious, which I respected. It was so refreshing to read a romance where the heroine doesn’t follow at the heroes feet two seconds after meeting him. And I have mad respect for Camila (and Claire) for that.
If you want to read something explosive, filled with tension and longing, this is the book for you.
“I'd give up my career to chase moments with the right woman.”
Camila is a shy woman, always hiding behind and keeping quiet until the time comes when her voice is needed, to save her and all her locals but as soon as her eyes landed upon the handsome stranger in a meeting she knew she was doomed. After being hurt from a previous boyfriend she's unsure of any man, will she be able to give the handsome stranger her time or will she walk away?
Warren loves his football but as the season ends he heads back to his home town to see family and his investments. Not hoping to be there long Warren is taken back when his eyes land upon the most beautiful woman he's even seen. Will Warren be able to bag the girl he's after or will the spotlight prove to be too much for the woman in question?
What an incredible read this has been. From the very beginning I knew I was going to be hooked, I wouldn't be able to put it down until I had finished it and that's exactly what happened. I loved every minute of it.
The characters were on point. Camila was interesting to get to know, she's guarded and shy and it's great to see her come out of her shell around Warren, beautiful. Warren was charming, handsome and everything a woman could possibly want, a sexy footballer *swoons* Their story was wonderful and heartbreaking and brought me close to tears a few times, my perfect kind of read.
This book is about love and second chances. How love can always find a way even when the days look so dark.
This is my first read by Claire Contreras and it's an absolute perfect first, I can't wait to read more of her work.
Warren is known as a panty chaser and his looks and fame keeps the women coming. It is interesting to see with Camila how he had to work real hard for her to even go on a date with him and the most funny thing of all she didnt even know he was a soccer player.
There were so many great scenes in this book. as I was reading I keep having a smile on my face. This books deals with betrayal loyalty death and overcoming. The chemistry between Warren and Camila is electrifying. Loved it
