The Virgin Game Plan by Lauren Blakely

Available Now! The Virgin Game Plan by Lauren Blakely.

A sexy standalone forbidden sports romance from #1 New York Times bestseller Lauren Blakely!

I had an excuse two years ago when I met her on campus. She interviewed me for a story on major league baseball's rising stars, and we shared a hot, passionate night that ended far too soon, and without a mention of who her father was.

Now I know the innocent but sexy woman I can't stop thinking about is the coach's daughter.

That means her dad is the guy who determines if I bat fourth in the starting lineup in every game, or ride the bench.

All the more reason to resist alluring, confident, brainy Reese every time I run into the reporter-turned-sports publicist.

That ought to be easy enough, until the time she confesses she's still carrying her V card, and she's been wanting me to cash it in since the day we met.

Staying away from her is going to be harder than resisting a fastball down the middle.

Especially since I'm pretty sure she's the one who got away, and letting her slip through my fingers again would be a rookie mistake.

Reese and Holden met when she interviewed him for her podcast, their chemistry was instant and off the charts. When life throws a curveball in between them, they go their separate ways. Neither forgets the other as their careers take off. After a few years, their paths cross and the sparks are still there. They want to explore where things might go, until another curveball.

Can these two navigate this thing called life and make a relationship work? Will things get in the way? Will they ever get their one perfect night together?

I love a second-chance romance and author Lauren Blakely has hit this one out of the park with Reese and Holden. They are fun, flirty, passionate, devoted, supportive, and very patient. They knew what they wanted and waited for the right time to go after it. This story has all the feels I love to read in a story to make it great. I hope you love it too.

This is the second book in the series, and a fun addition to the series. I love how these books link in with the Men of Summer series – it was really fun to see how others saw that relationship developing as a side plot.

This is a great mix of second-chance romance with sports at its heart. Reese and Holden definitely deserve a happily ever after, but there are some pesky rules standing in their way. Holden is a rule keeper, but he is wise enough to see that Reese is worth breaking every one, but whether that will end his baseball career and his longest friendship.

Such a good mix of sport, development of Reese's PR career, and the growing closeness between them. And some hints at future storylines!

The Virgin Game Plan is the second installment in the Rules of Love series. It can be read as a standalone but reads much better if read in the order that the author intended.

Reese first met Holden when she interviewed the up and coming baseball star for her podcast in college. They instantly hit it off and spent a fantastic day together. Holden has always considered Reese the one that got away. When they happen to run into each other again years later, they want nothing more than to see if they still have that spark until a curveball threatens what could be between them.

I loved how this relationship played out. They were so passionate about each other and fought to make it work. This is a fantastic second-chance romance!

M/F Romance

Reese is smart, driven, wants to make it on her own and not on her dad's name, but most of all, she's a good person. She loves her friends and mom, and knows that she can make it because of their support. Her relationship with her dad is another story and, despite her being a grown-up in the situation, I wanted more from him, for her.

Holden is caring, funny, charming, and all about his family and baseball. But when he sees Reese again, after two years, he can't deny their chemistry. If he could set aside his career for her, he would.

These two have to find their way around young romance, early life obstacles, and find their own normal. Neither wants to taint each other, but they also can't deny that they could have what most people search their entire lives for. Who are they to deny themselves? Especially when they both take a step back and really look at the situation.

The chemistry between these two jumps off the page. You can't help but root for them. Blakely writes a funny, young love story that will hit you right in the feels.

I’m a goner for her. “Reese,” I begin, laying it on the line. “I don’t do hookups.”
