A brand new sexy and fun sports romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely!
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 owner’s handsy-as-hell sister who seems dead set on winning more than a date with me at the 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. Which would be fine except my agent tells me the next day that we’ve got to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.
Violet says she’ll take one for the team and pretend to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport. And soon enough, I want this game with her 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!*
MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a standalone sports romance by Lauren Blakely. I was super excited for this book for two reasons. One, it is written by Lauren Blakely, and I love her romances and two it is written in the guy’s POV! I am such a huge fan of romances written in the guy’s point of view. I just love to get inside their heads and live for awhile, and I know I am not the only person who feels that way. You will all be happy to know that I absolutely LOVED Most Valuable Playboy. It was everything I was looking for in a sports romance and more. It might even be my very favorite Lauren Blakely book to date!
Most Valuable Playboy is the story of Cooper and Violet. There are so many of my favorite Tropes in this story, I don’t even know where to start. We have a fake relationship, we have guy’s point of view, we have best friend’s sister. So many yeses!!! So many! Honestly, I think anyone who is a fan of sports romances will fall in love with this book. I think it is perfect for so many different kinds of readers.
Cooper is awesome. He is cocky, but also sweet (and a bit sour at times). And Violet is great. Since Violet and Cooper have known each other for most of their lives, it was so easy to see that their connection was pretty genuine and deep from the start. Even when it wasn’t romantic, and that is my favorite way to start a connection. I loved seeing these two together. And then when you throw in Lauren Blakely’s huge talent for writing sass, humor and romance, you have a winning combination. Lauren Blakely is officially on my auto buy authors list. I have loved everything she has written! And this is a fantastic book. I loved Most Valuable Playboy.
