Sandra's Review


The Virgin Replay is the third book in the Rules of Love series by the ever-talented, Lauren Blakely. I am loving this series full of ballplayers and badass babes. You can read each one as standalone but I recommend reading the series since it’s fantastic! And Grant and Declan’s story (Men of Summer series) is also connected. If you have read any other books then you have met Sierra (Grant’s sister) and Chance (Grant’s teammate). I have been waiting for this story and it’s so worth the wait x10. 
The bro code. You know, aka the guy code. Don’t touch a friend’s or teammate’s sister, daughter, mom. Hell, even cousin. You don’t want to mess with friendships or chemistry on the field. 
Chance never had an issue with this code. He was married to his college love for ten years so he was never tempted to break the code. Any code. But over the last year after a very public divorce, he has been thinking about it. Sierra Blackwood was a temptation. A beautiful, smart, baseball-loving bar owner who make him weak in the knees. The problem? She was his long-time friend and teammate’s little sister. That didn’t mean he couldn’t ask her to be his fake date to a wedding they are both attending anyway, right? That’s not breaking any rules, right? Not like anything is going to happen. 
Sierra was married to her bar. It was her baby. She worked hard to get where she was today. She didn’t need a man to keep her happy but that didn’t mean she didn’t have secret crushes or wicked desires. With him. So, when he asked her to be his fake date for a Hawaiian wedding? She couldn’t say no. And she hoped he wouldn’t say no to her question. She knew he was the one she had been waiting for but would he bend the rules for one night? It’s not like they would be a thing. It would be a fling. That’s all. No-strings attached. It’s a win-win really. But, what will happen when they have to go back to reality? 
So delicious!! Sexy, passionate, sweet, and filthy. I just love these two. Sierra knows exactly what she wants and Chance is a fabulous listener. I loved their friendship over the series. It was build-up to this. Everything. They are fun, hot, spontaneous, and beautiful. They just did it for me. I can’t wait for the next book!! 🍒
We won’t rock the boat either. 
We’ll rock the bed instead. 
“You like it a little hard? A little dirty?” 
Her breath comes in a harsh pant. “I do. I don’t want to be treated like a flower. I want to be treated like a woman. Like a woman who’s not breakable.” 
“Kiss me hard. Kiss me ruthless.” 
5 out of 5 stars

The Virgin Replay is the third book in the Rules of Love series by Lauren Blakely. This series is so freaking good! We have already fallen in love with Chance and Sierra throughout the series, and now we get to watch them fall for each other! Ever since Chance became single, there has been a sizzling attraction between them. He goes to her bar with his teammates, but sits at the bar and chats with her. But she’s totally off limits because she’s his teammate’s sister and he’s not willing to risk ruining his relationship with Grant, Sierra’s brother. Chance is a good guy and he likes to follow the rules and do the right thing. Sierra is a temptation he’s willing to bend the rules for. He needs a date to his cousin’s wedding, a fake date of course. And it turns out Sierra also has something she wants Chance for. She doesn’t have time for relationships, she’s too busy making her business the best it can be. Sometime in the Hawaiian sun, things stop being fake but are still only going to be temporary. Even though they both want more, neither one is going to admit it. And then it’s time to put all feelings on the table and take a gamble on love. Oh man! I love this forbidden, friend’s sister love story! It’s sexy, sweet, fun and addicting! We get to see all our faves and I love every minute I get to spend with Chance and his friends and teammates!



A virgin, an athlete, a fake romance, and only one bed in the hotel room.

Following rules shot me to the top of my game as an all-star baseball player, and the golden rule is this — don’t hookup with your teammate’s sister.

But ask her to be your fake date when you desperately need one for a family wedding? Nothing in the guy code against that. Plus, the flirty, feisty Sierra’s my friend too, so why the hell not pretend we’re madly in lust for two days in Hawaii?

No hardship in a make believe kiss here, a fake smooch there, as long as we don’t cross any dangerous lines.

Then, the hotel books us into the same suite. Which means she’s showering near me, putting on itty bitty bikinis in the same room, sliding into that king-size bed wearing only a black lace cami.

But I resist…until the night she tells me she’s been waiting for me to be her first. And there’s nothing fake about my desire to say yes, even though that’s definitely against the code. But, maybe only if someone catches feelings? And neither one of us will.

Until I do…
