    ...laugh out loud, irresistible.

    Lauren Blakely is one of the hardest authors to review. She can deliver the goods, like nobodies business, but it's hard to put into words your thoughts without giving too much away. Most Valuable Playboy is another diamond. Whether you love or hate Cooper, the delight comes from getting inside the mind of a semi reformed playboy. He's cocky, famous and clueless when it comes to women. One in particular blows his mind and runs off with his heart. Violet is everything he desires, but never knew he wanted. Life is about to get interestingly complicated in this laugh out loud, irresistible courtship. Ms. Blakely is always a sure bet for an entertaining read.

    Sooooo much more than a sports romance....

    Most Valuable Playboy by Lauren Blakely is so much more than a sports romance...Lauren is an absolute GENIUS when it comes to combining humour, angst and panty-melting sexiness! We meet Cooper Armstrong, the new starting quarterback for the Renegades. For years he's been a backup (mostly a bench-warmer) for the now retired former starting quarterback....and they're winning!!! As most professional team players, these guys have their superstitions (not shaving, not washing their game socks...or other undergarments *Ugggghhh*) while on a winning streak...Cooper's is not having sex...with ANYONE...the WHOLE season!!! This, from the guy who's been voted "Best Butt in the NFL" and who also happens to be a TOTAL player with the ladies, especially when it comes to the lady who has the highest bid to win a date with him at the annual players charity auction! We also meet Violet Pierson, who is not just Cooper's longtime friend but she's Cooper's best friend Trent's younger sister! Violet owns a hair salon in San Francisco and she's had a bit of a crush on Cooper for YEARS!!! She'll also do anything for friends...and that includes pretending to be Cooper's "girlfriend" in his time of need! But IS it fake? With the way they kiss (sigh) and the way they can't seem to STOP kissing?! Will they be able to turn off all these unexpected feelings when Cooper no longer needs the protection of having a "girlfriend"? I ADORED this book...I totally fell in love (AND lust) with Cooper and I want Violet as MY bestie! I LOVED the back and forth banter between all the players on the team and Cooper and Violet, which happens to be one of Lauren's trademarks, and she definitely didn't disappoint! That steamy, hot-as-hell first kiss? Yeah, that was just a teaser for sooooo much more! Lauren has not ONLY scored a Touchdown with this one, but she DESERVES the WHOLE enchilada, the SUPERBOWL of Superbowls! I wish I could give it a whole lot more than 5 ⭐'s, making this a MUST READ for me!

    Lauren Blakely scores again

    4.5 stars!! Lauren Blakely scores another touchdown with Most Valuable Playboy. Charm. Humor. Forbiddance. Male POV. Football. Sexual tension. Cooper Armstrong. Violet Pierson. A bachelor auction… What more could you ask for? This book had it all and I enjoyed every second of it. I'm calling an audible and changing up the order of my favorite Blakey boys because the dreamy and lovable quarterback, Cooper Armstrong, needs to be on that list. When I first learned Lauren Blakely was releasing a full length football romance -we got a glimpse of her sport romance skills with the novella Out of Bounds - I was over the moon excited. Like being drafted by your hometown NFL team excited. Like throwing a 60 yard pass into the end zone to win the game excited. Like winning an MVP award excited. With all this excitement, I am beyond thrilled that Lauren not only met expectations but exceeded them. I mean, of course she did. The women is a pro, an absolute pro, at the friends to lovers/ best friend's sisters/ fake relationship tropes. Each story better than the last. Most Valuable Playboy is equal parts humor, heart, and amazing character chemistry. Cooper and Violet are perfect together. They share a bond that goes much farther than just friendship; even before they enter their faux relationship. The way Violet initially came to Cooper's rescue without being asked because she just knew he needed her proves it. They were so in sync with each other. Their back and forth banter and jokes were easy and fun. I just loved them. The forbidden element gave this story an incredibly sexy and delicious tension. He wanted her. She wanted him. But obligations, hidden feelings and fear stood in their way from going after what they wanted. Goodness! This story is so good. So soooo good. I could not get enough of this book. If you are looking for a book a sweet, charismatic guy to swoon over or a kick-ass, strong and independent female to admire or a fun, captivating story to get lost in, well the queen of the rom-com has just what you need. I simply had the best time reading Most Valuable Playboy. I'm excited to see what more this team has to offer.

    Another winner from Lauren Blakely!

    *Advanced copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review** Another winner from Lauren Blakely! You can never go wrong with a witty, swoony, funny, engaging story! Cooper Armstrong has been in the NFL for a few years playing for the Renegades, but he's been riding the pine. He's finally moved into the coveted starting quarterback position and he's also back again to help with one of his favorite events - the bachelor auction to raise money for the children's hospital. What Cooper isn't expecting is the owner of the team's sister to be putting the full court press on trying to lure him into bed. He needs help and he needs it fast! Enter Violet Pierson, who is not only his friend, but the sister of his best friend. He's known her since he was around 7 and she realizes that he needs help and she makes a bid to win him at the auction so he doesn't have to endure a night with the owner's sister. What starts out as a bid that Cooper will ultimately pay, ends up with him telling the entire crowd that they are a couple. When they are asked to kiss on stage, they do so and the sparks that fly are beyond either of their imaginations. Cooper is torn not only because Vi is his best friend's sister, but also because he's sworn off sex and relationships this season to focus on the game. Will the feelings he develops be the one touchdown he wasn't expecting to score? This was such a fun book and I loved the characters; not only Vi and Cooper, but Cooper's teammates too. I also loved that this was told from Cooper's point of view. It's not often you get a book from the male POV and so it was nice to get in his head to see what he was thinking and where he was at. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to see what Jones book brings for us!!

    Touchdown!

    Most Valuable Playboy? How about MVBB? Most Valuable Blakely Boy. Sorry Colin, Chase, and Clay, but you’re going to have to step aside- there’s new player in town and his name is Cooper Armstrong. Gah, I even love his name! (And what’s with me loving all these “C” names in Ms. Blakely’s books?!?) (But don’t worry Brent, you’ll forever be my number one.) Do you ever think you sound like a broken record when it comes to writing reviews? I do, when it comes to my reviews for Lauren Blakely. Maybe if she’d stop writing all these swoony and sweet, sexy and sassy, funny and flirty books that have me fawning and flailing over fictional characters I could mix things up a bit. But nooo, she continues to write these amazing books, leaving me no choice but to try and put together coherent thoughts that generally just leave me gushing and raving over them like a total fangirl. Ok, enough of that, onto the review. Cooper and Violet are childhood friends- that right there is a touchdown in my book. Add in the fact she’s his best friend’s little sister and we’ve got a 2 point conversion! 2 of my favorite tropes all rolled into one fun, sweet, and sexy as hell package, what more could a girl ask for?!? Seriously, Cooper is everything a girl could want- he’s charming, adorable, a complete sweetheart! Throw in the fact that he loves his mom and isn't not afraid to show it…major swoon. Violet is so awesome in her own right. She’s someone you could see yourself being friends with- hanging out, have GNOs, drooling over hot football players. I love when an author makes the heroine just as cool as the hero and Violet is one pretty cool chick. Together, Violet and Cooper have such fantastic chemistry! You could feel it from the first moment they shared the page. And things only got hotter as the book went on. But it's not merely the chemistry that makes these two so good together. It's the friendship they've shared over the years that just makes their relationship even more special, a friendship that made me fall in love with them. Even though their romantic "relationship" started out fake, there was nothing fake about how they truly felt about each other. What a feel good story Most Valuable Playboy is. I think I had a silly smile on my face almost the entire time while reading. When it comes to romantic comedies with a whole lot of heart there really isn't anyone out there better than Lauren Blakely.
