REVIEW ➞ The Virgin Replay by Lauren Blakey


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…

I hit the jackpot. This good guy is a filthy fucker in bed.


Holy chemistry! Chance and Sierra have LOADS of chemistry and it is heating up the pages!

Chance and Sierra are friends. Sierra’s brother, Grant, is one of Chance’s teammates. There is attraction between them, however, Chance doesn’t want to cross any boundaries when it comes to her. Chance needs a fake date for his cousins wedding and Sierra is his first choice as a date.

This story had amazing banter, plenty of laughs, heat and insane amounts of chemistry. I loved Chance and Sierra’s friendship from the start, but when lines were blurred and crossed things just went to a whole new level that I loved even more.

I couldn’t put this one down and fell in love with it from the first page.

If you’re looking for a friends to lovers, fake dating, sports romance check this one out.
