  • Great chemistry in this friends-to-lovers romance!

    The Virgin Rule Book is the first in a new baseball series from Lauren Blakely. This kicks off the Rules of Love Series, which judging by this book, should be a lot of fun! Nadia Harlowe has inherited a professional football team and she's doing her best to make a name for herself. She's recently moved the team from Vegas back to her hometown of San Francisco. She's a powerhouse that is smart, outspoken and has some spark and sass as well! Crosby Cash is a baseball player for the San Francisco Cougars and he also happens to be the best friend of Nadia's brother Eric. He's gorgeous, charming and hasn't made the best choices where women are concerned lately. So much so that it's having an effect on his reputation. Knowing he needs to clean up his act, he makes a pact with his buddies that he's going to stay away from women until at least after training camp is over and maybe longer. Since Nadia and Crosby have known one another for so long, they decide to buddy up to attend functions that they both need dates for, but since neither is dating, it makes sense to go together. Sounds like an easy fix, right?! Not so fast... The two enjoy spending time together, they have a lot in common and the sparks are there, the question is should they act on them? Their friendship is so important to them that they want to make sure nothing endangers it. I enjoyed Nadia and Crosby! They had great chemistry and it's always fun to see a friends-to-lovers and in this case best friend's sister romance work out. This one doesn't have much angst in it, but it has plenty of swoon for all those romance lovers out there!

  • 4.5 stars!

    The Virgin Rule Book is the first book in Lauren Blakely’s new series, Rules of Love and what a start to the series it was! It has amazing characters, sexy, flirty banter, laugh out loud antics and just the right amount of romance and steam. Nadia is the owner of a football team that she recently inherited from her father. She is a powerhouse of a woman. Wealthy, sexy and confident. After a series of unsuccessful dates she vows to herself to give up men and dating and focus on her career and the success of the team since making the decision to move the team from Las Vegas to San Francisco. Crosby is a pro baseball player for the San Francisco Cougars and he is also Nadia’s brothers best friend. He has just made a promise to himself to take a break from women and dating as he is just about to start training camp for 7 weeks. All of that changes when Nadia and Crosby decide to be each other's plus one at Nadia’s brothers wedding and she ends up confessing that she is a virgin and wants Crosby to be the one she gives her virginity to. This is where they decide to enter a friends with benefits situation but neither can stick to their agreement for long, as they realize fairly quickly that there is much more than friendship between them. Crosby and Nadia have fantastic chemistry. The build up between them was so addicting between their flirty text messages, accidental touches to so much more. Once they stop fighting their attraction and let their guards down it was pure magic between them. I loved the moments with Nadia’s best friend, Scarlet (from My One Week Husband) she is that supportive, encouraging best friend that I love. This is going to be a fantastic series. LB dropped just enough hints to keep us guessing and wanting more of the rest of the characters in the book. I am particularly excited for Holden’s story after that little teaser at the end! If you love a good romantic comedy, sport romance, or friends to lovers story this is the one for you! Highly recommend.

  • Sweet, Swoony, and Sizzling!

    I loved this sweet and swoony friends to lovers romance! Nadia is a prominent business woman who runs a professional football team. She has wanted to date but it seems the men she meets are intimidated by her power and wealth. She has pretty much given up on finding love. Crosby is a successful, sexy baseball player who gets taken advantage of by the women he dates over and over again. He has decided to give up on dating for awhile. Crosby is Nadia's brothers best friend but they have been long time friends as well. When they meet at a wedding, they begin flirting which leads to more. Since they are both so busy with their carreers, they decide to enter into a friends with benefits relationship. Nadia may be a virgin physically but she knows what she wants. Now that she has found the right man, she isn't afraid to ask for it. When Crosby learns that Nadia is a virgin, he doesn't run, but is surprised by how much he wants to be the man to give her all the dirty pleasures she dreams about. But can these flirty friends go back to just friends when both their seasons ramp up? This is a fun & flirty, sweet and off the charts sizzling romance with enough heartfelt emotion to make you swoon and cheer for these delightful characters. Nadia is strong and sassy, and Crosby is sweet with a deliciously dirty talking mouth, making them perfect together and their chemistry is explosive! I also love all their friends and teammates who were funny, supportive and loyal. What a great start to the Rules of Love series!

  • Fun and Flirty!

    This was a fun, flirty, funny, and sexy story that had me smiling like a fool. I loved the chemistry and connection between Crosby and Nadia. Their romance progresses organically even when they are pretending it's nothing more. I love how we also get introduced to the other characters and it gave me just enough to want to read the next ones in this series.

  • Brothers Best Friend Romance.

    EDITED TO ADD: There is a prequel novella that gives you more of an insight with this couple. It is best read beforehand but if you’re as forgetful as I am, afterwards, still was great as I wanted more from them. 4.5 🌟 There are three things you need to know about a LB novel, it's going to be fun and flirty with great intimacy, the storyline will keep you intrigued with amazing characters that all connect up somehow, and they are great easy reads with little angst. Oh wait.. I miss counted.. there's four things and the most important one for me is that when reading any LB book, you will have a huge smile on your face and probably snorting out loud with her humor. The banter between the couple or secondary characters is very witty. This being the first book in a new series, we are getting some brand new characters to get to know and I feel they will all be connected to baseball in some degree. Crosby and Nadia have been friends for some time, he is her brother's best friend and has been around the family since high school. After a series of bad dates and girlfriends, Crosby has taken himself out of the dating league to focus on the next season. Nadia is back in San Francisco and owner of the football team, she's a smart and business savvy woman but has little experience with men, so she too is not dating to concentrate on getting the team to the next Super Bowl. These two make a pact to be each others Plus One to the next few events that they need to attend but the more time they spend together, getting to know the adult version of themselves, the harder it is to keep it hands free and not 'accidentally' feel the other one up. But who needs rules when the chemistry is so strong and feelings now come into play. One thing that shined so bright for me in this book was the way the sexuality of all the characters weren't or didn't need to be stated. They are a bunch of people, living their best lives, and no labels need to be attached to who they love. I loved that Crosby didn't have to communicate that he had a gay friend, Grant was his friend, full stop. And I think a line from Crosby is so potent....."I try to operate under the assumption that I don't assume anyone's orientation at all - it's not up to me to try to glean who people love." This is something we all should follow. Once you get to the end of this book, we get a little glimpse to who and what is to follow with the next books. I am very captivated and can't wait for more!
