#RepeatWorthy “The Baller” by Vi Keeland


My musings…

I am a sucker for a good athlete-romance book and have enjoyed the other Vi Keeland books I have read, such as Cocky Bastard, Throb, and Beat.  So, I went into this book expecting greatness, and I wasn’t disappointed.  There were times that I didn’t know where she was going with the plot, and there were some concerns with the characters, particularly Brody, that could have ruined the book for me, but, just as before, Vi Keeland did not lead me astray

So, lets talk about this particular quote.  When reading The Baller, this line stuck out to me.  I have already discussed in previous posts that I prefer to read about strong individuals, especially heroines, but this line resonates with me because even the strongest people have a breaking point.  Just like the characters in the book, there is only so much a human can take.


This idea is so relevant to humanity and should be considered when interacting with others, and I truly love when words in a book connect to the real-life world I live in.  It is one of the major reasons I chose to teach English.  This book had several lines that really spoke to the fragileness that even the strongest people can possess, so, if you interested to see what other gems lie inside of this book, check out the synopsis and link below.


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.
Simple right?
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.

Author’s note – The Baller is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
