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 team owner's recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who's dead set on winning more than a date with me.

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 we have to keep up the act while he's negotiating my contract. Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it 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!

*ARC Review* 

I'm very picky about sports romances especially ones that contain football. With this being said Lauren Blakely knocked it out of the park with this book. I know that's a baseball reference. ;) But anyway I really loved how she grasped the football aspect of the story. Her storytelling  shows she did her research and I was left very impressed with the sports part of the book.

 Now on to Cooper and Violet, I think they are my new favorite couple. They are made for each other and I loved the dynamic of this couple. Cooper was sweet, loving, caring, cocky, and I loved the heart he had. Cooper was such a sweetie but he also has a dirty side and OMG! I had to fan myself at one point. Violet was such a good match for Cooper. She was smart, funny, sassy, independent and didn't take any of his mess. There is just something about this couple I just can't get enough of!

I've read many books by Blakely and as usual I'm left with a huge smile and happy heart when I'm finished. Her writing is real and refreshing. The drama is never over the top and all matters are handled in a realistic manner. Blakely  has such a way with words and I'm sad this story is over! Well done and I can't wait for Jones and Jillian's story.
