About this ebook

A forbidden romance with the coach's daughter wasn't part of my game plan.

The woman I want is as off-limits as they come.

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.

THE VIRGIN GAME PLAN is the second instalment in Lauren Blakely’s contemporary, adult RULES OF LOVE erotic, sports, romance series. This is journalist/pod caster Reese Fallon, and professional baseball player for the LA Bandits Holden Kingsley’s story line. THE VIRGIN GAME PLAN can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person perspectives (Holden and Reese) THE VIRGIN GAME PLAN follows the forbidden relationship between twenty-four year old Reese Fallon, and twenty-five year old Holden Kingsley. Two years earlier Reese Fallon landed an interview with up and coming baseball star Holden Kingsey but an almost one night stand ended when an early storm finds our hero jetting to the next game, and Reese gets a job offer in South America. Fast forward to present day where Holden’s professional career lands him in San Francisco where he will reconnect with our story line heroine but all is not well when they discover that Reese’s estranged father is the new manager of Holden’s baseball team, and Reese is none too pleased to face the man that destroyed her family and her thoughts on love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Holden and Reese, and the potential fall-out as the forbidden aspect of their relationship may affect both of their careers going forward. The relationship between Holden and Reese is one of second chances but their timing was off two years earlier. Neither one stepped into another relationship in their two years apart, and reconnecting was easy as their feelings for one another grew during their time apart. Reese has remained a virgin, and Holden is the man with whom she will fall in love. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Reese’s father Edward Thompson, and his new wife Becky; Reese’s best friends Layla, Tia, and Grant Blackwood (catcher for the San Francisco Cougars) Crosby and Nadia (The Rules of Friend with Benefits / The Virgin Rule Book ); Declan Steele, Chance, Grant’s sister Sierra as well as several members of both teams. Grant and Declan’s duet begins with Scoring With Him. THE VIRGIN GAME PLAN is a story of reconnecting and relationships; family and friendships, acceptance and love. The premise is engaging, inviting and realistic ; the characters are feisty and fun; the romance is captivating and tender.

5 Star review The Virgin Game Plan (Rules of Love #2) by Lauren Blakely The second book in the Rules of Love series and it was just as entertaining and engaging as the first book. This is a forbidden sport romance story about Holden and Reese who met a few years ago and spent a passionate night together. Fast forward to the present and Holden is shocked to discover that the woman who he has thought about is in fact his coach's daughter and therefore totally off limits. As with previous books by Lauren Blakely there was plenty of heat and a great deal of humour. The camaraderie and friendship that Holden has with his teammates was entertaining. When I first read the blurb for this one I knew that this was going to be a fun, entertaining story and it was exactly what I got. Both the main characters of Holden and Reese were likeable, engaging and easy to relate too along with a cast of secondary characters who were also fun and interesting. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

The best things in life are worth waiting for... The Virgin Game Plan is the second book in the ‘Rules Of Love’ series by Lauren Blakely. This fun, flirty and light-hearted book is Holden Kingsley and Reese Fallon’s tale of destined love. Holden and Reese two years ago during a podcast interview. Reese was interviewing Holden, and from the moment they met, it was obvious these two were meant for each other. Holden is a sexy, strong and determined guy and a rising star of Major league baseball. He knows what he wants, but with Reese, it’s not that simple. Especially when they just had one night, and barely that. Life throws a curveball at them, splitting them into what-if?? Now they are back in the same town and have a real chance to be together. It’s not going to be easy, but it will be fun, sensual and the most fabulous time of their lives. I absolutely loved this book. It was just the antidote I needed for a stressful week and I devoured it in one sitting. Holden was a perfect hero and Reese a sassy woman who lived life to the full. I loved watching their relationship blossom. Grab this wonderful story today.
