Hard to Handle, book one in the Play Hard series, an all new series of standalone books by New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg.

At first, the request seemed simple—sign a new athlete to the agency. 

Then I found out the new athlete was none other than the most wanted man in hockey today: Hunter Maddox

Gifted. Sexy. At the top of his game. And the only man who has ever broken my heart.

If signing him will help save our family business, I’ll swallow my pride and do what’s asked. 

But when it becomes clear his uncharacteristic antics off the ice are a hint of something deeper, keeping things strictly professional between us becomes more than complicated.

But I know better than to cross that line.

I’ll never date a client. Not even for him.


Win the Stanley Cup and do it before time runs out. 

Not a small feat, but it’s what’s motivated me since the start of my career. 

And time is running out.

Enter Dekker Kincade.

Feisty. Dogged. Damn gorgeous. The one I let get away.

I have no idea why she’s traveling with the team, but hell if resisting her is going to be easy.

But I have a job to do, and I refuse to lose sight of that end game. Even if she confuses me. Even if she sees parts of me I’ve hidden from the world. 

I can’t lose focus. Not even for her. 

“Giving half a heart is akin to giving someone a broken heart …so give them your whole one instead.”

Hard to Handle is an amazing well written story about love, forgiveness and acceptance. It’s a damn well roller coaster of emotions, it will tug your heart and break it then put back together repeatedly. Kristy Bromberg gave us all the possible feels through this book. They portrayed the characters  very well. You will fall in love deeply to their story all the way to the end. This is a perfect story of second chances and new beginnings.
Dekker is a sport agent that her father sent to get Hunter Maddox signed a contract with them. But the problem is Hunter and Dekker was a casual fling before. By that time that they were together.. Dekker realizes that she has falling for him that’s why she ended things between them thinking that Hunter won’t feel the same way.After three years of not seeing each other doesn’t change anything the attraction still lingers between them. They both know that there’s more to it, but they are both stubborn to admit it.

Hunter Maddox is a successful Hockey player, all man and cocky he’s the captain of the team and always on the top of his game. But carrying a guilt about his past puts a lot of pressure in him. He became distracted and off during the game.

So instead to attempt convincing Hunter to sign up with them. She done differently, and that mission is to help Hunter get his head on straight, focus on the game and win the Stanley Cup. And of course be the man who has a life to live through.

This book was definitely a great kick-start of a series and I can’t wait to read more of Kincade sisters. If you like second chance, friends to lovers sports romance with all the feels.. This book was definitely for you. This is a must read.
