The Virgin Replay by Lauren Blakely Blog Tour

The Virgin Replay. #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely. Available Now.

A virgin, an athlete, a fake romance, and only one bed in the hotel room.

Following rules shot me to the top of my game as an all-star baseball player, and the golden rule is this – don’t hookup with your teammate’s sister.

But ask her to be your fake date when you desperately need one for a family wedding? Nothing in the guy code against that. Plus, the flirty, feisty Sierra’s my friend too, so why the hell not pretend we’re madly in lust for two days in Hawaii?

No hardship in a make believe kiss here, a fake smooch there, as long as we don’t cross any dangerous lines.

Then, the hotel books us into the same suite. Which means she’s showering near me, putting on itty bitty bikinis in the same room, sliding into that king-size bed wearing only a black lace cami.

But I resist... until the night she tells me she’s been waiting for me to be her first. And there’s nothing fake about my desire to say yes, even though that’s definitely against the code. But, maybe only if someone catches feelings? And neither one of us will.

Until I do…

Sierra has a crush on her brother's teammate, Chance. Although he has flirted with her each time he has come into her bar over the last year, he hasn’t asked her out yet. She is her own woman, is the owner of her bar, confident, sassy, independent, and wants to give her innocence to Chance.

Chance sees Sierra as the woman she is, but he doesn't want to break the bro code. He doesn't believe in dating a teammate's sister. But when he needs a fake date for a family wedding in Hawaii, Sierra is the first woman to come to mind.

Is it safe for Sierra and Chance to be alone and think nothing will happen between them? Can they spend time together and not end up with one or both brokenhearted?

I loved the others in this series, and I really enjoyed Chance and Sierra, they were fun, flirty, heartfelt, friends-to-lovers, chemistry sizzling under the surface, and the story is perfect for Sierra and Chance. And don't forget the epilogue from Tom the cat.

The Virgin Replay is the third installment in the Rules of Love series. It can be read as a standalone but reads so much better if you read in the order the author intended. It is even better if you read the Men of Summer series before this series.

Chance is the closing pitcher with the San Francisco Cougars. He has very specific rules on how to life his life. Be a good teammate, be a fantastic closing pitcher, and don't date a teammate's sister. He's got the first two with no problem, it's the third he's having trouble with. Sierra is Grant's sister. Grant is Chance's catcher on the Cougars. Sierra owns the Spotted Zebra, a bar that the team's players frequent often. Sierra and Chance friendly flirt when they are together, but Sierra has plans that involve Chance. When they are both invited to a location wedding in Hawaii, Chance asks Sierra to be his fake date to show his family and ex-wife he's finally moved on from the very public divorce. Sierra agrees but the date turns out to be anything but fake.

I loved getting the small glimpse of the characters from Men of Summer. Lauren Blakely definitely hit the ball out of the park with this one. It's a great friends-to -lovers read. Fun and flirty, and the sexy chemistry comes through with Sierra and Chance.

I can't wait for TJ's book! I need to know all about the romance writer!

This is the third book in the series, and whilst each one is a new romance, there are links across this and other of the author's sports romances – I love catching up and seeing different sides of the story!

Sierra has been a stalwart in earlier books, and so we all know how hard she works in her bar to be successful, and independent of her rich and famous baseball playing brother. We also have a strong suspicion of her crush on Chance, but due to his friendship with Grant, there are bro codes not to be broken.

However, as fake dates to a wedding? Surely Grant can't complain at that... but then they find themselves together in Vegas... Yep, these two are definitely riding the wave of chemistry, but also years of friendship and closeness.

I really enjoyed how they smoothly slip into wanting more, and knowing that it is both unacceptable, but inevitable. The Hawaii wedding setting, the crazy thing they do in Vegas – fabulously entertaining and enjoyable.

All three books so far have been really brilliant at taking the virgin from the title and making it clear that this is not to be seen as a slur or an ambition, but just is how it can be, and who should judge anyway? Thank you, Lauren Blakely, for a great series!

Sierra is feisty, competent, strong, and, sigh, still a virgin. She's been so busy with school and running her business, that she put relationships on the back burner. However, now that she has a successful business, her friends and family are pushing her to take a break for herself. Sierra loves her bar and especially enjoys nights when a certain sexy player comes in to flirt with her.

Chance knows that baseball is what he has. He holds on to it with everything he is. He also knows that you don't date your teammates' sisters. But there's just something about Sierra that he can't let go. He loves their banter, comes in to chat with just her, and doesn't really date ever. He knows that it can lead to heartbreak and a life full of regret. He has his family to show him why relationships are not for him.

On a whim, because they are heading to the same wedding and Chance doesn't want so many questions regarding his cheating ex-wife, who will also be at the wedding, Chance and Sierra decide to attend together. Sierra wants to be wild and spontaneous and Chance just wants to be near her.

Their spontaneity might get them in trouble, or it might lead to something so much more. It's a fun story where sometimes you have to get out of your own way to find happiness.
