I received an e-arc of Winning the Player from NetGalley in exchange for a review from Destiny Romance. This in no way has influenced my review.

For the first time ever, I read a book and understood the sport that it was centered around or included. I love footy, the AFL (Australian Football League) I have been going to and watching the footy since I was 2 years old. I have grown up watching it. So it was really different reading a book not only set in Australia but which also includes a home grown sport.

I felt sorry for Aubree. I understood what it is like, even though it wasn’t what I wanted it to be, how an injury can ruin what you love. I use to dance all the time but then I dislocated my knee, tore my ligament and had a few other things happen that now prevent me from dancing. So I understand her heartbreak, to an extent, of how an injury can stop you doing something that you planned to do forever.

I also really enjoyed Aubree, yes she did have quite a few negative thoughts, but like I said before I understand why she was so negative, she had trained and worked hard her whole life for something, which then came crashing down on her. I don’t like that she ran away from her problems and does a few more times, but I guess that is how she deals with them. I felt that Aubree was a really ‘real’ character. She wasn’t fake.

Life is what you make of it. You take the good with the bad. Turn a negative into a positive.

Hunter. Hunter is a name that I always refer to as those hot bad boys. He may not be a bad boy but he is definitely hot. He is the footy boy, but he is also the Alpha male. Meaning that I wanted to hit the hell of him for 80% of the book. He was arrogant, rude and so immature.

Winning the Player is my first experience reading a Leesa Bow book and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was different and being set in Adelaide Australia, it’s close to my heart. With realistic issues and characters that are fun and diverse, I will be picking up more books from Ms Bow.

Aubree Taylor is a 6 foot tall twenty-one year old that had high dreams and higher nightmares. She dreamed of playing professional basketball and college basketball in USA, but they all came crashing down three years ago.

Aubree went travelling around the world for two years and has finally come home. Not really ready to face her reality back in Australia, Aubree still headed home to her mother. Picking up her friendship with Maddy and other friends from her basketball days, Aubree isn’t going to hide any more.

Finding a job where her mother works, Aubree is slowly trying to work out what to do with her life. One thing she didn’t count on was seeing Hunter Stone so soon. Hunter Stone is 6 foot 5 inches tall and plays professional Australian football. Hunter is known for his womanising ways and seems angry to see Aubree hanging around the bar scene again.

Hunter and Aubree seem to keep running into each other, but their encounters never seem to be very pleasant. Although Hunter keeps trying to bring up what happened on Aubree’s last night in the country two years ago, Aubree is embarrassed. The more time they spend together thought, the more Aubree wants Hunter. She has always had a secret crush on him.

Aubree gets an offer to start coaching basketball when the new season begins. She is a little apprehensive and annoyed because she really just wants to play.

Hunter starts to drift away from Aubree and she is worried.

This is a party-filled journey of Aubree Taylor as she struggles to retake her life after a devastating sports injury. She knows what she wants, but getting it is something altogether different and the men offering themselves to her just aren't making a blip on her radar. There are fake friends and annoying ex-boyfriends that just won't leave her alone. She is convinced there's no chance of finding a happy future, especially when she can't move past her own emotional pain. There is plenty of support from friends and family, and even from unexpected places. This story provides great insight into the world of elite sports people, particularly football players and highlights many of the pitfalls of stardom. The characters are well rounded and falible. Well worth reading.
