Review – Hard to Hold (Play Hard, #2) by K. Bromberg

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, standalone romance and a new hero to steal your heart . . .

The contract with Major League Soccer was supposed to help repair my damaged reputation.

Then I discovered that I’d made a deal with the devil: the player I’m supposed to recruit is none other than the bad boy, star Premier League footballer, Rush McKenzie.

British. Tattooed. Sexy. A man currently at the center of a huge scandal.

The goal? To convince him to stay in the States.

But what’s wrong with a little fun in the meantime? No strings. No sweet nothings. Just a way to pass the time while we’re both struggling to prove our true selves to the world.

If someone found out our relationship was anything more than professional, it would only serve to prove all our critics right.

I never should have agreed to take the fall.

But I did and I’m a man of my word.

Even if it means risking everything I’ve worked for.

The only bright side is Lennox Kincade.

Gorgeous. Defiant. Rumor-tainted. Totally off-limits.

Sharing a house with the gorgeous sports agent should have been a fun distraction from the turmoil. Someone to help pass the time while the tensions back home die down.

But what started as nothing, ends up as something I never saw coming.

I absolutely loved Rush and Lennox’s story in Hard to Hold! It was a sexy, emotional, swoon-worthy, and entertaining standalone sports romance in the Play Hard series from K. Bromberg. I definitely can’t wait to read the rest of this series in the last two books to come!

   The storyline was somewhat predictable but kept me entertained from start to finish. Sports romance is one of my favorite tropes, and I’ve really enjoyed learning more about the sports management aspect in this series so far.

   The characters were phenomenal. I instantly fell head over heels in love with Rush and Lennox, and that love only grew as the story progressed. Rush had the biggest heart and was totally book boyfriend material. He completely won me over and had the perfect balance of cockiness and swoon. Lennox was a strong, independent yet vulnerable heroine with a heart of gold and an immense sense of loyalty. She also had a wonderful family that I can’t wait to get to know better in the books to come. Rush and Lennox had off the charts chemistry together, and I loved how their relationship progressed throughout. The ending was perfect and made me so happy.

   Hard to Hold was a sexy, swoon-worthy, emotional, and entertaining standalone sports romance that you don’t want to miss! Rush and Lennox’s story is a MUST READ, and I can’t wait to continue the Play Hard series in Hard to Score and Hard to Lose next year!
