Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.
Don't let the fact that I'm the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I'm only a player on the field. I've kept my pants zipped all season long -- and it has been long -- because 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.
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. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we've got to keep up the act while he's negotiating my contract.
Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is -- I've been riding the bench for years.
How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?
MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!
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!
I'd love to be waiting for Cooper in the end zone!
Lauren Blakely constantly impresses me with her natural talent and flawless ability to create seductive contemporary romances. Each time I pick up her latest release, I know it's going to be an exceptional read. Her glossy style is extremely consistent and reliable. No matter what, I can turn to a Lauren Blakely book and be guaranteed a rock-solid novel. Thank you for providing another game winning touchdown with Most Valuable Playboy.
I am a HUGE fan of the best-friend's-little-sister trope. You wanna know what's even better? When the sister is also the best friend! I got two of my favorite concepts rolled into one delicious treat. MVP is exactly the type of book I search for and hope to stumble upon. Thankfully Lauren Blakely graciously created this masterpiece for me to obsess over. This whimsical journey is truly fantastic and everything I could hope for!
Cooper Armstrong snagged my heart from the start. He's charming, genuine, talented, kind, and gorgeous. As the quarterback of a winning NFL team, he's can have anything he wants whenever he desires. Cooper is the type of man you dream of meeting and I loved every sweet moment. The entire book is from his perspective, which reeled me in even stronger. From his gunslinger throws to his generous charitable donations, Cooper had me swooning all of the place. How can you resist this yummy stud? Oh yeah, you can't!
Violet Pierson has known Cooper since she was in first grade. They're very close and have a stellar friendship that's never been tested. When Cooper needs her help, she doesn't hesitate before plunging in head first. Violet is gentle, warm, successful, loving and beautiful. Getting to know her through Cooper's eyes was delightful and I'd gladly be her friend. Violet's demeanor is relaxed and breezy so it's no wonder Cooper enjoys spending time with her.
Cooper and Violet's connection is obvious from the get go. Their flirting was always empirical and clinical until the platonic ties are tested. The farce was easy to pull off but denying their true feelings is not. It was a simple plan but there's no denying the electric chemistry and smoldering tension. It ratchets higher and higher the longer their game of pretend lasts. They're both benefitting from their fake relationship so what could possibly go wrong?
Lines blur as Violet and Cooper get lost in the make-believe, but it's only temporary. Right?
You're going to enjoy finding out. This sensational romance is dripping with all the best goodies. From entertaining football games with the sexy players to tantalizing fun between the sheets, it's nonstop greatness. The energy in this novel was cranked up the entire time and I had so much fun reading! Lauren Blakely once again proved why she's a forever favorite of mine.
