    It was suggested to me several months ago by my best friend and book buddy that I read Player s Ultimatum My best friend and I both love to read and discuss the books we ve read, but it s very rare that we actually agree on a book From our huge differences in what we find attractive in our heroes to conflicting themes our discussions arelike debates than actual discussions Even when it comes to erotica, I minterested in a good story whereas she s pulled in by the hot sex So whe It was suggested to me several months ago by my best friend and book buddy that I read Player s Ultimatum My best friend and I both love to read and discuss the books we ve read, but it s very rare that we actually agree on a book From our huge differences in what we find attractive in our heroes to conflicting themes our discussions arelike debates than actual discussions Even when it comes to erotica, I minterested in a good story whereas she s pulled in by the hot sex So when she made her suggestion, I downloaded a sample of Player s Ultimatum and buried it at the bottom of my to read pile Once I became a reviewer for BlackRaven s Reviews, I saw that this book was available and figured I d give it a go So with a smirk on my face, I began to read.Robbie Gutierrez is a soccer player who is trying to land a lucrative contract However, rumors have surfaced that he might be gay and that could hurt his chances of fulfilling his dream He enlists the assistance of his best friend, Yvonne Floyd, by asking her to pose as his fiance until the contract is landed Yvonne agrees but doesn t expect to meet the oh so sexy Paolo Saito, Robbie s team mate and rival When these two meet, sparks fly inways than one and it s page after page of excitement as the reader is treated to Paolo s pursuit of Yvonne.I liked Yvonne She was very down to earth and seemed so real Not possessing the usual beauty that is attributed to most heroines, Yvonne s tough as nails personality as well as the protectiveness she showed towards her best friend made her irresistible It s hard to explain but her beauty just came through the pages And Paolo he was my ideal hero Seriously Tall, dark, beyond gorgeous with a killer body and a total alpha male Some readers might be turned off by his aggressiveness, but I loved it Rough and rugged, he went after what and who he wanted and when he set his sights on Yvonne she was in a lose, lose situation Several times throughout Player s Ultimatum, I had to stop reading to contact my best friend because I was so giddy with what was going on between these two I couldn t keep it to myself Her response was a big ole I Told You So and yes, she did.I have no problem admitting when I m wrong and poor editing aside, Player s Ultimatum by KoKo Brown is one of THE BEST contemporary erotic novels I ve read this year Hands down I loved it From cover to end, this is a great story with a hunk of a hero, a very likable heroine, and sex scenes that require a cold shower after reading Player s Ultimatum is definitely going on my keeper shelf and will be one that I will revisit time and time again Yes, it s THAT good Originally Reviewed for Blackraven s Reviews

had mixed feelings about him at times but in the end I liked him too Yvonne is a graduate student and has a great head for business She s almost done with her degree when her best friend, Robbie, asks her to put her life on hold and help him out of a bind Robbie is a professional football player European football aka soccer and gay There has been some bad press around him that he is worried will cause him not to get a contract renewal and ruin his career Robbie convinces Yvonne to pose as his fiancee until the end of the season in exchange for paying off her student loans She agrees and joins him in Rome where Robbie s team is located to start her role as his fake fiancee Paolo had a tough life growing up and had to fight hard for everything he has He excels in football and is one of the highest paid players in the European league He s also very smart and has other business interests as well Paolo is known as a playboy but his rep seems to be a bit blown out of proportions the paparazzi and wanna be girlfriends Paolo has some mis placed anger toward Robbie because he replace a friend of Paolo s on the team with some deeper stuff mixed in It s not really Robbie s fault but Paolo wants to bring him down Because of this, when Paolo meets Yvonne and finds out she s Robbie s fiancee, he decides with some encouragement from a greedy jerk to try to seduce her and make trouble for Robbie through her.Yvonne and Robbie show up at their first game together and the press get to see them as a couple after the game Things are going pretty well until, while waiting outside the locker room for Robbie to come out, Yvonne ends up meeting Paolo and is instantly weak in the knees at the sight of him She also gets the impression that he doesn t like Robbie very well which makes her seemingly uncontrollable attraction for him a big problem Over the next few weeks they meet a couple times and Yvonne can never seem to control her attraction to himbarely keeping from doing things she shouldn t with him on multiple occasions Paolo tries seducing her but is also very attracted to Yvonne and finds thatandhe just wants to be with her and not caring about Robbie except for the fact that Robbie and Yvonne s relationship is keeping Paolo from being with Yvonne full time Yvonne manages to avoid anything to major going down with Paolo although there are a few intense encounters until she goes to a masked ball during the Carnival celebration Yvonne meets a masked man and feels a strong attraction Not knowing who her masked man is and not thinking he knows who she is , Yvonne ends up spending the night with him Before she can escape the next morning she finds out it was Paolo she slept with and he s not willing to just let it go He uses her wish for silence to blackmail her in to being his lover on a regular basis Not wanting to risk ruining Robbie s career and admitting to herself that she s not good at saying no to Paolo, Yvonne agrees to his proposal.Paolo and Yvonne engage in their clandestine affair and although Yvonne feels guilty about lying to Robbie, she feels she has to in order to save him in the end Yvonne is sure that Paolo will get tired of her sooner or later and hopefully he ll keep his promise not to leak anything to the press or Robbie I actually liked the method that Paolo set up for Yvonne to visit him without raising any suspicion It was kind of sweet because he gave Yvonne something she liked while getting time with her Paolo had his moments both ways..sometimes sweet and sometimes a real jerk Yvonne isn t what I d call a strong female character but she does have her moments They both start to have deeper feelings for each other as they spendandtime together Paolo finally realizes that he doesn t care about his revenge anyand just wants Yvonne He s determined to win her from Robbie one way or another Unfortunately, Paolo makes a wrong move and pushes Yvonne too far and she breaks it off with him regardless of the consequences She admits things to Robbie and they wait to see what happens I don t want to go in to too much detail but there is some surprises and some drama before everything is over To be honest, there was a little too much drama because Yvonne gets hurt at one point because no one bothered to let her in on the plan making her to feel betrayed on multiple levels Regardless of this, things do work out and Yvonne and Paolo get their HEA.I enjoyed reading this story I liked the characters but wished the secondary character would have been a littlefleshed out I think that Robbie should have been a littleinvolved and active in the story but maybe I m just being picky Overall, this was a good story

    I generally enjoyed this story I thought it was sort of a twist on a familiar theme someone needs someone else to pretend to be engaged so they don t have to do this or that In this case, it was gay Robbie who needed his best friend Yvonne to pretend to be his fiancee so he would belikely to get his soccer contract at the end of the season Yvonne figured it couldn t hurt Robbie was offering some pretty hefty financial incentives, and she did love him as a friend Nobody counted on I generally enjoyed this story I thought it was sort of a twist on a familiar theme someone needs someone else to pretend to be engaged so they don t have to do this or that In this case, it was gay Robbie who needed his best friend Yvonne to pretend to be his fiancee so he would belikely to get his soccer contract at the end of the season Yvonne figured it couldn t hurt Robbie was offering some pretty hefty financial incentives, and she did love him as a friend Nobody counted on Paolo, though Paolo who always gets what he wants and almost immediately homes in on Yvonne And unfortunately, Paolo has it in for Robbie In fact, it was Paolo s digging into Robbie s private life that made Robbie approach Yvonne And Paolo is the consummate ladies man He rarely dates the same woman twice, but there s something about YvonneI liked that Paolo and Yvonne were so drawn to each other I thought Yvonne was a little bit sloppy though at the masquerade ball when view spoiler she went off with a man she didn t know, who turned out to be Paolo hide spoiler Masks or not, it s a little sloppy, considering she s supposed to be Robbie s fiancee, to do that with ANYONE.I liked that while Paolo was blackmailing Yvonne, they really got to know each other outside of the sex Which was kinda hot And I loved that she sort of made him lose control, and he doubted himself, which he never did before her I do have to question Yvonne not knowing Paolo s age They sat and talked for hours about everything and age NEVER came up Not likely.And while I really enjoyed the overall story, this book could really have benefited from an editor My inner red pencil was going a little crazy It wasn t horrible, but I found myself pulled out of the story several times ETA TheI think about how this book stacks up to others I ve rated 4, I decided to lower the rating It was enjoyable, but not one I love

    3.5 to 4 starsYou need to take this story with a grain of salt or you will really not enjoy it Suspend disbelief for a few hours.Yvonne Floyd agreed to become her best friend Robbie s beard until he gets his contract signed and delivered You see Robbie is drafted as Italy s new soccer star In a society that is traditional especially when it comes to their soccer players , questions regarding sexuality is dangerous and career ending Since Yvonne is up to her eyeballs in student loans, she ag 3.5 to 4 starsYou need to take this story with a grain of salt or you will really not enjoy it Suspend disbelief for a few hours.Yvonne Floyd agreed to become her best friend Robbie s beard until he gets his contract signed and delivered You see Robbie is drafted as Italy s new soccer star In a society that is traditional especially when it comes to their soccer players , questions regarding sexuality is dangerous and career ending Since Yvonne is up to her eyeballs in student loans, she agreed to be Robbie s fake fianc for pay and for the sake of friendship.Until she catches the eye of Paolo Saito, he is the team s captain and Robbie s nemesis.Paolo has it out for Robbie Robbie took the spot slotted for Paolo s best friend and consequently view spoiler committed suicide because of it hide spoiler So, yeah Even though it s not Robbie s fault, Paolo still had an axe to grind.Okay this is the part where the grain of salt comes along Yvonne insta lusts Paolo nothing wrong with that and Paolo insta lusts back nothing with that either and because Yvonne view spoiler bangs the shit out of Paolo not knowing it was him because they were at a masquerade hide spoiler he is now blackmailing her into a panty burning affair behind Robbie s back.Fine I ll bite.Because the story was decent and I love LOVE Paolo, I will take the odd premise I have to keep suspending disbelief because I can t understand Yvonne s reasoning for continuing the affair besides the hot, hot monkey sex She knew that Paolo hated Robbie who is her best friend and she is in this fabrication in the first place to keep him away from scandal How can she not deduce that he s using her to take Robbie down There were some eye roller moments in the book Some scenarios that were just a little scripted Some were just plain weird I think with better editing the book would have been awesome Odd scenarios like view spoiler She asks him to cut his hand off because he offended her with his advances and he is actually thinking about doing it Not pretending actually contemplating it With a knife and everything hide spoiler Cuckoo.But in the interest of story telling erase erase This would have been a solid 3 stars for me if it wasn t for PAOLO Hot Japanese Brazilian soccer player Arrogant doesn t take no for an answer possessive Gah I need a cold shower.What was wrong with him Paolo remembered walking in on a girlfriend once having sex with another man and he didn t even blink an eye Robbie pulled his fianc into his side and he wanted to tear the other man s head off and use it as a practice ball.Yum Yum.Heat level NuclearCharacters a Him me likeyb Her on the fence She kind of annoyed me but I really can t explain why I think it s because she just lets everything happen to her She just kind of reacts and goes along to what is happening around her Recommend Yes Only because Paolo is so yumerrific

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I ve been on the fence about this book for months I am a die hard sports fan and though hockey is my favorite go PENS soccer is my first love So, I tend to skip athletes as heroes because rarely do I find one that doesn t make me see red due to the authors utter lack of research One newer book actually had a hockey player receiving a penalty that was nearly an hour long seriously, wtf I finally gave in and borrowed this book and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU KOKO BROWN She got I ve been on the fence about this book for months I am a die hard sports fan and though hockey is my favorite go PENS soccer is my first love So, I tend to skip athletes as heroes because rarely do I find one that doesn t make me see red due to the authors utter lack of research One newer book actually had a hockey player receiving a penalty that was nearly an hour long seriously, wtf I finally gave in and borrowed this book and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU KOKO BROWN She got European football so bang on, she even managed to work in a version of the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE So, what about the romance Well that was up and down On the upside, Paolo sounded extremely hot He was not only built like a Ninja Turtle, he was smart and who doesn t love a Portuguese accent And he was an Alpha without being too much of an a hole He and Yvonne had a lot of chemistry and it never felt forced Also, I loved how they were drawn to each other yet it wasn t insta love On the downside, Yvonne had a tendency to act like a tween at a Justin Bieber concert when she was around Paolo She has a few too many TSTL moments when she thought he dropped her for Robbie I couldn t even laugh she sounded like an idiot and I never bought her not recognizing his voice, kiss, body or scent when they hooked up at the Carnivale party And this is going to make me sound like Elaine from Seinfeld, but all of the exclimaming They exclaimed at times there were as many per sentence as there were words at every turn and it got to the point where they all seemed to be screaming at one another I give this one 3 1 2 stars

    Never have I read a book where I itched to count the instances of the improper use of the exclamation point It made the book feel very, very silly There were quite a few times where I reread the paragraph to myself and inserted a period where the exclamation point was and it made a lotsense There were a LOT of editing problems with this book and lots and lots of lines that just plain and simple did not work The line with the milkshake was one The line where her orgasm was compared to Never have I read a book where I itched to count the instances of the improper use of the exclamation point It made the book feel very, very silly There were quite a few times where I reread the paragraph to myself and inserted a period where the exclamation point was and it made a lotsense There were a LOT of editing problems with this book and lots and lots of lines that just plain and simple did not work The line with the milkshake was one The line where her orgasm was compared to a Cat 5 hurricane was another Paolo s inner thought about Yvonne s hips being made for having babies and sex didn t work And I reread that section where she handed him a dagger and told him to cut off his hand as an apologyand he actually seriously considered it Just weird, weird, weird Now, why the three stars Well, the setting for oneItaly is a really romantic place to have a book set and the author did a good job on the descriptions of the settings The sex was pretty freaking hot if you could look past all the cheesy lines that were inserted along with the overuse of the exclamation points And the ending, to me, was not predictable at all It caught me off guard in some ways and really wrapped up a little too neatly in others, but there is definitelythan meets the eye to Paolo Saitoand it s interesting to watch the onion layers be peeled back Entertaining for sure, very descriptive, but not one that I ll read again
