From the international bestselling author of The Simple Wild and Ten Tiny Breaths comes a new second-chance, hate-to-love romance.

The Player Next Door by, USA Today bestselling author, K.A. Tucker, is now live!


Scarlet Reed has returned to Polson Falls, convinced that twelve years away is long enough to shed her humiliating childhood identity as the town harlot’s daughter. With a teaching job secured and an adorable fixer-upper to call home, things in her life are finally looking up.

That is, until she finds out that Shane Beckett lives next door.

Shane Beckett, the handsome and charismatic high school star quarterback who smashed her heart. The lying, cheating player who was supposed to be long gone, living the pro football dream and fooling women into thinking he’s Prince Charming. Shane Beckett, who is as attractive as ever and flashing his dimples at her as if he has done no wrong.

Scarlet makes it abundantly clear that old wounds have not been forgotten. Neighbors they may be, but friends they most certainly are not. She won’t allow herself to fall for the single father and firefighter again, no matter how many apologies he offers, how many times he rushes to her aid, or how hard he makes her heart pound.

But as she spends more time with him, she begins to fear that maybe she’s wrong. Maybe Shane has changed.

And maybe this time she’s the one playing herself—out of a chance at true happiness.

Yesi’s Thoughts 

A small town, second chance romance that brings all kinds of emotions… The Player Next Door is the latest novel by K.A. Tucker and it’s one to add to your summer reads for sure. Not only is it a second chance romance, but it also bring so much more… enemies to lovers, forbidden, neighbor, steamy romance too! Plus it can also be hella angsty along the way. Shane and Scarlett light up the pages and it can go either way for you… frustrated as heck with Scar and her inability to let go of her grudge, swoony as heck over Shane and his sexy firefighter, single-dad self, angsty as heck with the will they or won’t they back and forth, and really I could go on and on.

Bottom line, if any of the above interest you, then pick up the book and dive right in. This author has proven her talent when it comes to contemporary romance and I can’t wait so find out what she has in store next!
