Faking it never felt so real...
Nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me at the charity auction.
Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.
She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Then my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he's negotiating my contract.
What happens next when faking it starts to feel all too real?
Lauren Scores Again!
What can I say about this book, true love at its best! Yet another couple that Lauren makes your favorite! Cooper and Violet won my heart in the "fake" play as she's saves him the hands of Maxine the team owners recently widowed sister at the charity auction! Can what they started as make believe turn real? Will Cooper find room in his heart for her and football? Will Violet be able to keep her heart in tact since she's loved him for so long? Will he unknowingly hurt her?
Omg you have to read this one by Lauren to find out! 5+++++++++ stars as she once again made me laugh, swoon and just fall in love with these two characters!! My heart is exploding with all her characters filling it in!!! Great story Lauren!
Take one for the team!!
Ladies, if you like football, very steamy love scenes, strong characters with tons of depth then you will love Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely. Cooper and Violet are two people who have known each other since she was in second grade but in her own words she thought 'boys were yucky" at that time. Love that line!! Violet comes to the rescue for her brother's best friend at a charity auction. During the course of the charity event Cooper and Violet start/confirm a "pretend" relationship. The "pretend" relationship easily and slowly begins to move into a "real" relationship the more time that Cooper and Violet spend together. Lauren Blakely stays true to her ability to write strong characters both hero/heroine. Cooper is the quarterback for the local pro-football team who just happens to be super swoon worthy, has a heart of gold, and of course a dirty-talker in the bedroom(requirement for a Blakely Boy). Violet is super sweet, strong, confident, and pretty funny too. I found myself smiling at how many funny moments I found in this story. Totally amazed at how Lauren Blakely keeps up the pace of great stories time after time. If you are looking for a storyline with strength, heart, confidence, dirty-talk, and a fun escape of pure entertainment you will never go wrong with a book from Lauren Blakely. I received an ARC of Most Valuable Playboy in exchange for an honest review. PS-You don't have to love football to love Cooper and Violet's story!!
Touchdown! Love this sweet, sexy, charming, funny sports romance! Blakely nails it in the guy’s POV as he falls hard for his best friend’s sister! Cooper is confident, sexy and so dang sweet! The football is just the right amount!
