    Muy Caliente!!!

    Warren Silvia is a sexy, star soccer player who isn't used to being told no. Camila Avila doesn't know who he is nor does she care. They meet under unfortunate circumstances and he instantly wants to get her into his bed. She initially isn't interested, so he has to work at getting her to go out with him. She shows him how to appreciate the little things in life and he shows her how good a realationship can be with the right person. I loved Warren! Not only was he sexy, but he always stood up for Camila, even against his own family. I liked that Camila was a strong woman who stood up for self and what she believed in. They made a really good couple that was fun to read about. Claire Contreras writes in a way that pulls you in and keeps you interested. I read this book fairly quickly because I always wanted to know what was going to happen next. I will definitely recommend this book to everyone who will listen.

    Welcome to Swoonfest 2016

    Welcome to Swoonfest 2016, folks. Step right up and sit tight, you're in for the ride of your life. War Zone, aka Warren Silva, is seriously something else. He is yum in all of that manliness of his, plus he's got this laid back vibe, with a dash of (IMO) Alpha. Sure he may be fictional, but he has to be the smoothest swooniest hero out there. I mean, there's still Jensen that he competes with (in my heart) because I love him too much, but freaking Warren kills it. From the get, you just know you're going to be entranced and not want him to disappear. He's got skills. Soccer skills, that is...hahahah!! Then there's Miss Independent, aka Camila Avila, who wears her independence and pride well. She also has the biggest heart, a strong will, and has plans that do not include a hot to trot Soccer Star. These two are complete opposites, both playing tug-of-war; trying to keep the control in their hands. The buildup throughout the book was great, it didn't stop. Going from thick sexual tension, to feel good moments, to tear inducing feelings. There were even times where I felt that the bottom could dropout at any given second. This caused me to read the pages faster, all the while savoring everything I could. The fact that this book is a Sports Romance, revolving around Soccer really made me enjoy it more. I can't actually say that I've read a Soccer Romance before this one. But Mr. Hotshot Soccer Star and Miss Independent, really give us a run for our money with this book. If you are looking for different, sexy, fun, and steamy, this book is most definitely for you. I give it 4.5 Stars!!

    OMG!! Where to even begin with this book?? Claire Contreras has given us a story that we all dream about reading but never really get it I think. This story has it all. If I could tell an author about my image of a perfect story that I would want to read, this one would be it. It has everything in it you could want, plus so much more!! Outstanding job Claire Contreras!! I immediately fell in love with Warren and Camila! They are just so easy to like and fall in love with in the story. When Camila and Warren meet, she has no idea who he really is or how famous he is in the country that he is living in. I think that was a great aspect for this relationship to blossom like it did. Camila was a working woman and was not even out looking for anyone when she meet Warren and knocked him off his own feet. I truly believe in the saying, "When you see the one you are meant to be with, you will know" and that is what I felt like happened here with Warren. Warren was not going to let anything get in the way of getting Camila for his own either. Warren is a very famous soccer player in another country and is over visiting some family when he meets Camila. Warren is one of those stars that is definitely recognized when he is out in public but with him being away from the country he actually plays in, it is a little different for him, but he is still recognized quiet a bit in the states as well. When Camila sees someone recognize him, it is hard for her to wrap her mind around him being that famous because of how she meet him and how their relationship has developed without all the fuss over him. I love that Claire made a point to say that Camila fell in love with Warren for who he was as she knew him and not as everyone else knew him to be. As the story goes on, we get to see Camila and Warren go through some ups and downs and I actually felt like I was going through everything with them because the way that Claire Contreras writes, it just pulls you into the story and hold onto you. You don't want to put the book down until you are finished with the story and then you are sad that it is over and long for more! I really enjoyed being able to read this one and I know you will as well. Thanks Claire Contreras for such a great story and I can't wait for what is next from you!!!

    GREAT Book

    I have loved every book I've read by Claire Contreras and this is no exception, Warren and Camile's characters have such depth, are so well developed, both show so much emotion and are so likeable that I was rooting for each to realize how much they needed the other. I enjoyed watching them grow with the angst each had with each other and their families. The supporting characters were very interesting as well. Sports books are my favorite and this one did not disappoint. The storyline held my interest from the first chapter and I enjoyed the twists and surprises. GREAT book to recommend.

    A Must Read!!!

    I love sports romance books and The Player by Claire Contreras does not disappoint! Warren Silva, the playboy soccer "football" player and Camila, the quiet girl from New York. When these two meet in New York she has no idea who he is or anything about soccer. This is a fun, loving, heartwarming, sexy and HOT story! I completely enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it!
