Review: The Catch by K. Bromberg

The Catch The Catch by K. Bromberg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Holy. Angsty. Wow!! K. Bromberg gave me what I was looking for in the conclusion of The Player duet. There was turmoil, despair, betrayal, nostalgia, comraderie and love IN SPADES!

THE CATCH starts right where we left off in The Player... Scout has to choose whether to honor her father's last wish or to protect the man who has come to mean EVERYTHING to her. Stuck between a rock and a hard place, she makes the best decision she can and oh how the repercussions were felt.

I really liked that, for the most part, Easton and Scout were a united front. However, I wasn't a fan of Easton's treatment of Scout when things didn't go his way. Or when the going got tough. Not cool, bro. Although I understood where he was coming from, I was looking forward to him getting out of his own way.

I was also hoping for more depth to Santiago's character. He played a significant role in this drama, most notably causing the injury to Easton's shoulder in the first place. I thought he would get added definition and dimension in this conclusion. He didn't. He was still the villain and although we do learn a bit more about him, nothing we learn salvages his reputation or redeems him. Sad.

Overall, I enjoyed how wholesome this story turned out to be, which is weird considering the characters were thrown loop after loop and so many secrets and nefarious deeds were being clung to. It's just that there was so much unexpected warmth between Easton and Scout, which had nothing to do with the amazing steam that existed there as well ;) They stood strong and ended that way and their epilogue was just icing on the cake. I'm thrilled with where the author has left them!
