5 out of 5 stars

The Virgin Game Plan is the second novel in the First to Score series by the talented, Lauren Blakely. I was so excited when she announced she was writing a series with not only virgins but baseball!! I grew up loving the game. It’s the sport my family both played and loved to watch. And living in the Bay Area we had two teams. The A’s and the Giants so it’s fun that this series has two SF teams who are rivals. Ok, moving on…
Holden was only a player on the field. He needed to have a connection with a woman before he took her to bed. He also didn’t need distractions. His life was baseball. So when he met a woman who gave good flirty banter and knew her baseball, he was a goner. They spent one unforgettable afternoon and evening together. It ended too soon. Their plans axed a week later. It was over. Or so they thought…
Two years. It was almost two years since that day. Two years since they were in the same town, let alone room. It was fate that brought them back together. Then, a wrench is throw. Reese was Holden’s new manager’s daughter. He was new to the team. She was new to her publicist job. Risks all-around, folks. Off-limits. She was the forbidden fruit. Will they take the risk?
I ♥️ Holden. He is seriously swoony. Sweet. Funny. Smart. Determined. Reese is a badass with her love of baseball, coffee and retro clothes. I want to hang out with her. With them. They are fun, beautiful, and so lovable. I also love their friends!! I can’t wait for them to fall.
The man has a mouth for innuendo and lips made for dirty talk. Words seem to fall from his tongue laced with seduction.
“My God, you’re stunning,” I say as I regard the beauty in front of me wearing a red lace bra. ‘Look at you. Still in your power color.”
She bites her lips, nodding. “Is it working?”
“I feel powerless in front of you,” I say speaking from the truth of my bottomless desire for her.
“Is that a new location in Candy Land?”
“It is. You’ll find it a little east of Blow Job commons. Just south of Lollipop Woods.”

The Virgin Game Plan is the second book in the Rules of Love series by the fabulous, Lauren Blakely. I am loving this series something fierce! These characters just make me happy! They are all sexy, sweet, funny and talented. I’m envious of their friendship bonds and I want to be friends with the women they fall for! Lauren is the queen character development. She introduces us to them once and we are always eager for more. So much more! The Virgin Game Plan is Holden and Reese’s story. It’s fresh, flirty, and funny. Holden and Reese met years ago and had an instant connection. They talked, shared things about themselves and both wanted more after the night was over. Fate had other plans and their lives and dreams took them in different directions. Now, it’s two years later and they find themselves in the same town, in the same circles. And as soon as they see each other again it’s like no time has passed. They want to pick up where they left off. Until her father becomes Holden’s new coach. Now she’s off limits. But they can’t seem to stay away from each other. Is love worth the risk? I love this story! Holden is swoony, sexy, funny and smart. Reese is independent, knows who she is and talented. They are the perfect match. Career driven, but also want to follow their hearts. They show us that both are possible! This forbidden romance made me swoon so hard! The sexy, second baseman and the coach’s daughter have off-the-charts chemistry! 




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

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.
