Publisher's Summary

A sexy stand-alone forbidden sports romance from number-one New York Times best seller Lauren Blakely, performed by Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson!

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 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.

Oh Yeah Lauren did it again! I am loving this sports romance series and I'm super excited about upcoming books in this series too! Anyone who knows me, knows I do not enjoy adult virgin romances but Lauren has shown me that I can enjoy it as long as she is writing it! I loved how Holden & Reese met but I love even more how they both just couldn't forget...swoon!! The chemistry between them was so real and I fell in love instantly. This book was also pretty steamy. I love all the side characters and the build up to future book with their stories too!

The narration was perfect! Really Jason Clarke & Ava Erickson really became Holden & Reese. Both of them are naturals at giving listeners the feeling that the characters are the ones telling us the story!

P.s. I AM DYING FOR DECLAN & GRANT'S STORY!!!!! This was a tease for their book for me ;)

Second chances

This is book two in the Rules of Love series and we have Reese and Holden to follow as they fall in love and navigate through her career and her father's role as well as Holden's starting career and where his love for Reese will lead him.

Reese and Holden have a sweet and hot beginning but the timing just isn't right. When they are brought together again they both know they are meant to be but they still have an obstacle to overcome. Reese also has some past baggage to get past and to learn to trust and forgive. This story is so sweet and sexy as all of this authors books are but they just melted my heart with their story. I loved the other characters supporting our two love birds as well as the tidbits of the game. I'm not a big sports person but the focus isn't on baseball but on their love and it was great.

Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson were the perfect choice for these two characters. Gah, listening to Jason as Holden was delicious and Ava was perfect for Reese. She brought what was needed for her and I loved listening to both of them. I loved the book and loved the narration and highly recommend it.

Fantastic!!

I loved every second of The Virgin Game Plan!! This forbidden sports romance will make you swoon. I loved Reese and Holden. Holden isn’t your cocky baseball player, he sweet, sexy and has a great heart! Holden agrees to do a podcast interview with Reese and these two hit it off from the start! After one day together they want more, only life takes them in different directions. Time doesn’t lessen the feelings their short time together invoked. When their paths cross again their feelings haven’t changed, but a curveball neither expected makes this relationship seem impossible. I loved the way this story came together and way Reese and Holden fought and never gave up!

Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson were perfect together and gave the characters a spark that made you want to listen forever!

Home run!

As a huge fan of Lauren Blakely and sports romance I had high expectations for this new book and it far and away exceeded everything I had hope for. Holden and Reese are an adorable couple who were absolutely meant to be together and fate made sure that happened. The steamy, sexy, romantic love story with very little angst and not too much drama was just exactly what I wanted from this book and it delivered. Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson were perfection and brought all the heat and the feels to this beautifully written and flawlessly performed audiobook. Worth a credit for sure!

Wonderful romcom listen

Ooh, I just loved, loved, loved this book! I'm a huge fan of Lauren Blakely's, and she writes fantastic romcoms, and this is no exception. But this book also has so much heart and so much emotion.

Reese and Holden met just before Reese graduated from college, and they shared one perfect, amazing, idyllic day. They had the potential for so much more, but career opportunities got in the way. When they're both in the same city at the same time, they are ready to give their romance a real chance, but now Reese is off limits for a different reason - she's Holden's coach's daughter.

Reese and Holden not only have such amazing chemistry, but they have a really emotional connection as well. They just click, easily. They don't push or rush, because they're both in this for the long haul. I loved how they truly connect, how they are just so enamored with each other, how their relationship is driving by that recognition of your soulmate.

Narration by Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson was fantastic. They really captured not only the passion of our couple, but also the emotion and the exuberance of knowing that you've found your match. I could listen to this book over and over because it was just so enjoyable and so entertaining.

I found a new book boyfriend!

If you are looking for a new book boyfriend, grab this book! Lauren Blakely gives us Holden! Swoon worthy, athletic, good looking, faithful, there is nothing about this man that you won't like! Holden and Reese meet when she interviews him for her podcast. There instant chemistry is palpable, but circumstances takes Reese away for several years to follow her career path. Now two years later, their paths cross again. The feelings are still there, but when they realize Holden's coach is Reese's father, things look bleak. He can't date her, right? In true Blakely fashion, we are transported into Holden and Reese's world, experiencing their ups and downs, and getting to know their friends and immersing us in romance. It's sweet and spicy and will win your heart.

Jason Clarke and Ava Erickson are the storytellers for us and the perfect match for these two. Clarke has that warmth in his voice that has me under his spell immediately. He plays the part of the focused athlete and switches easily into the romantic man. Erickson has a voice that aids in the innocence of Reese, and let's us in on all her firsts with the ideal voice. This book made my weekend fly by and my heart full.

Fun and Flirty Sports Romance

It’s all a matter of timing, and for Holden Kingsley and Reese Fallon the timing is definitely off. After meeting and nearly sharing a super hot night together, their ‘date’ is cut short, unforeseen circumstances and all that. Two years later and they are both still carrying a torch for each other, sadly fate is playing a cruel game, and forbidden love comes into play. Can they just be friends? The attraction and chemistry are palpable, and together I knew they would be combustible, they’re the perfect couple, or they would be if circumstances were different. Holden is the ultimate book boyfriend, he’s kind, he’s caring, and he’s sexy AF. Oh, and now that they’re both back in San Francisco, and mixing in the same circles, it’s going to be difficult not to see each other. I’ve got to say this is one of my favourite Lauren Blakely romances. No games (apart from ones on the field), and pure unadulterated romance. Oh, and did I forget to mention, I listened to the audio version. Jason Clarke - enough said - inserts googly eyes (the absolute perfect Holden, down to a tee). Ava Erickson was wonderful as Reese. Together they nailed it.

Brilliant narration

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me listening throughout the day wanting to know what was going to happen next. My only issue really is the virgin element and some things that are said that leave me trying to figure out how and why. Otherwise, it’s a fun and entertaining story. I love that it had very little drama. And practically none in the relationship. The consent conversations were important to the characters and that really made an impact on the way they were viewed. I know I loved Holden just a little bit more for his concern.

I will say that out of the five...yes five epilogues, I felt only two were really about this couple. The rest were more to let us know about other characters. It was fun to include but not necessary for the conclusion of this couple’s story.

The narration was top-notch. When I heard it was going to be Ava Erickson and Jason Clarke I could have jumped in excitement. Talk about a dream team narrator pair-up, and they did not disappoint. Props to Lauren for using someone with a believable British accent for a side character. I love how Ava and Jason’s voices complemented each other and has their transitions were smooth and easy to listen to. Five star performances from both of them. The production was great with no issues.
