    Description

    A sexy, falling for my brother's best friend sports romance from number one New York Times best seller Lauren Blakely and performed by Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton!

    Let me make a few things clear. I didn't go to the wedding intending to dance with the best man, to dare him to show me a very sexy pic on his phone, or to accidentally kiss him in the hotel elevator after the reception ended.

    But you know how it goes. Things just happen at weddings....

    The next day, Crosby and I agree to put all those shenanigans behind us. The fun-loving, stupidly gorgeous all-star baseball player might be my brother's best friend, but he's my friend too and has been for years, so it's easy to move on, especially since I have a high-profile business to run. 

    But since he's newly single and I'm always single, it turns out we both desperately need plus ones. We agree to "publicly date" over the next week of galas, parties, and events before his baseball season begins.

    The only trouble is the more time I spend with Crosby, the more I keep imagining how much I want him to take my V-card. And when I broach the possibility with Crosby, his answer surprises the hell out of me.

    ⭐️⭐️ 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️

    Oh I love it when Lauren Blakely's book are extra steamy and this one really is. This is a new series that I am very excited about. I knew I would love this one because I love a good friends to lovers romance.
    Nadia & Crosby are perfect, their chemistry is off the charts as is their steam level! Because they have been friends for years, their relationship takes off quick but doesn't feel like insta-love. I love Nadia because she is women who knows what she wants and she is also a women working in a "man's world" being an owner of a football team. Crosby is a famous baseball player so these too have a lot of mutual friend and go to a lot of the same events. I was so happy he wasn't a football player because that would have been drama and as always with Lauren Blakely, the drama is low which just made this book even better. Did I mention how hot this book is? I am not normally a fan of adult virgin's in romance books but this author has showed me different twice now. I loved that even though she is a virgin, she isn't innocent and her virginity isn't really an issue or a big deal.
    At the end off this book we get some sneak peeks into the rest of this series and let me tell you... I CAN'T WAIT!!

    Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton are my FAVORITE narration duo so that was just icing on this yummy piece of audio heaven!

    Fabulous friends to lovers

    This book is FANTASTIC!! This has all different types of things that I love-best friend's little sister, friends, sports...truly, there is something for everyone here. The Virgin Rule Book had me grinning, sighing and fanning myself. Lauren Blakely has definitely hit a home run with this one!

    I love Nadia. I love how strong she is-both personally and professionally. She's in a high powered position and she holds her own-and why wouldn't she?? This author writes some of the best heroines in all of romancelandia because she lets them hold their own. I would be friends with Nadia in a heartbeat.

    Crosby was so much fun to get to know. Superstitious-which comes with the territory of his profession *I* think-but funny and sexy as hell. He also has some great swoonworthy lines. I fell for him right away! I loved how he respected and appreciated Nadia.

    The chemistry these two have is OFF THE CHARTS. There is one particular limo scene that had me fanning myself for sure!! The rest of their sexy times were hot as well and you'll definitely want a fan to help cool you off. There is more than them than the bedroom, and their friendship is fantastic. Watching that grow and develop into more was just so satisfying.

    The supporting cast of characters made me smile. I always love seeing old friends (though this IS a standalone) and seeing new friends that I want to know more about. The writing is sharp and fun, clever and full of heart. I didn't want this book to end.

    Now, Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon?? GOLD in these performances. They absolutely brought these characters to life for me. I felt like I was listening to a play and I loved every moment of it. Their voices just worked so well together!

    The Virgin Rule Book is sexy, hot and smart. It's fun and a book I read in one sitting (and also didn't want to stop listening to!!) I just loved it. I absolutely highly recommend this book and I can't wait for the next one from this author!!

    Nadia & Crosby!

    The Virgin Rule Book
    By: Lauren Blakely
    Narrated by: Teddy Hamilton, Erin Mallon

    Lauren Blakely had me at Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon! This combination was a winner from the start, and then I listened. A romance to sit back and enjoy, Blakely weaves her magic with Nadia and Crosby. Nadia, the sister of Crosby's best friend has always been around. Cute and funny, but always at a distance. Now at a wedding, the two are dancing and all bets are off. This friends to lovers romance is everything I love. Nadia is a high powered professional in football, and Crosby loves her for her it. Crosby is handsome baseball player with a playful side and Nadia is head over heels for him. Low drama, lots of passion and lots of witty banter had me in love with this couple. I can't wait to see what is coming up next in this new series!

    Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon are amazing together. I love both of these narrators. Teddy always has me falling for the hero,and he fits into Crosby's personality with ease. Erin always has me laughing, and with Nadia, she is the perfect fit. As always, Blakely casts her story flawlessly.

    Absolutely loved it!!

    I absolutely adored this book and this couple!! Crosby and Natalie are absolutely perfect together!! Natalie is Crosby's best friend Eric's sister so pretty much off limits as long as he has known her. They go from long time friends, to each others' plus one at events, to friends with benefits, to totally and madly in love. They have incredible chemistry and set the sheets on fire for sure, but their friendship is the sweetest and the feelings that develop between them happen so organically and honestly did not take long. When Crosby tells Natalie:
    "You are the best thing, and you have been happening to me for years". I was totally swooning!
    Their story is so sweet, so sexy, so much fun and oh so special. I loved it so much! Listening to this as an audiobook was just awesome! Teddy Hamilton is perfection as Crosby and Erin Mallon slays as Natalie. They bring these characters to life with such feeling. This is such an entertaining listen that will put a smile on your face that will surely stick around even after it's over. Fantastic start to this new series and I can't wait for what else Lauren Blakely has in store with this one!

    Crosby and Nadia...Finally!!!

    Being the owner of an NFL team in Las Vegas, Nadia is a very busy woman. She doesn’t have much time to date, but has decided to make the time, and enlist the help of a professional matchmaker. When the results of that endeavor prove to be fruitless, Nadia decides maybe she should focus on her job instead of trying to find Mr. Right.

    Crosby, a big-time baseball player, hasn’t had any trouble finding girlfriends—they just end up being expensive disasters…every time. When he decides to take himself off the dating market, his teammates are there to help.

    Nadia’s brother Eric is Crosby’s best friend from childhood, but that hasn’t stopped her and Crosby from having a great (sometimes flirty) friendship, too. Both being in professional sports, their paths cross from time to time.

    While attending Eric’s wedding, Crosby and Nadia are chatting, and shared their similar woes w/the opposite sex. Since they attend some of the same sports functions, instead of attending solo, they have the bright idea to be each other’s Plus-One. They’re friends, and get along great, so what could possibly go wrong? The fact that they’re both attracted to each other could be an issue.

    This was a beautiful story. I’ve waited it seems like forever for Crosby and Nadia’s story, and it was so worth the wait. You’ve got an NFL lady boss who isn’t afraid to ask for what she wants, and a hot AF baseball player with a seriously on-point gift for dirty talk and flirting. Even though we already knew these two were made for each other a while ago, Lauren gives us a great fairy tale we all deserve. With all the heat and swooniness we've all come to love. THERE'S A LOT OF NASTY TIMES!!

    Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon give a great performance narrating, and stick around for the extras at the end. I’ve already laid claim to one of those extras (hot Brit James Joseph)! You won’t be disappointed.

    Audio Queen LB does it again

    How do I love The Virgin Rule book and the incomparable Lauren Blakely? Let me count the ways:

    ~ The way she takes care of her loyal listeners by making us feel like we're in a special world just for us as each story unfolds. Like how she just build a luxe hotel in San Francisco area real quick like for this book. Like how Dr. Insomnia's Tea & Coffee Emporium has a new San Fran location that serves wonderful organic black tea. See also, Nadia's favorite artist & the song she jams to getting ready for her first date with Crosby that neatly ties into that picture of Crosby's she asked to see.

    ~ I'm pretty sure she uses "climb him like a tree" in every book, and I'm here for it.

    ~ The number of different names for Dick Pic is just one of the MANY, MANY witty turns of phrase that either make you giggle or paint just a clear picture you can't help but feel like you've fallen into the story. (Phallus photo was a missed opportunity there, though.)

    ~ Feminism. All the Feminism. I found the broader romance genre after stumbling into the romantic suspense sub-genre, but I stayed for the feminism, and few people bring it as well as Lauren. The Virgin Rulebook has a female NFL team owner, a female lead sports network anchor, a female NFL general manager, and a shopping trip for books about powerful women for an 8 year old.

    ~ Inclusive romance the way the world should be. Lauren writes people who are real and who love in all the real ways people love. The worlds she creates where all the experiences of love and of sexual orientations are NORMAL is such a wonderful place to be. Gay pro athletes? Check. Pansexual parent finding second-chance love with the opposite sex of their first marriage? Check. And it all just flows through the story like it's an average Tuesday. As it should be.

    ~ No one knows their core audience better. Casting Teddy Hamilton as a pro athlete. It's the best Teddy there is. Dropping in a few uses of "dope" because IYKYK.

    ~ She puts her heroes in henleys. I appreciate her picking my fave color of navy this go-round.

    ~ The foreshadowing! Lauren's followers know what's coming, but even if you don't the drops and hints and tidbits that become full-blown stories are the greatest little breadcrumbs. I'm looking at you Holden, Declan and Grant.

    ~ Her audiobook casting is second to none. Teddy Hamilton saying “sweetheart” the way he does is why fainting couches exist. Erin Mallon voicing a bad-ass boss lady is the only way to do bad-ass boss lady in audio.

    The Virgin Rule Book is a fun and heartwarming romance. Somehow Lauren once again makes you feel like you're listening to your bestie's new friend tell you how she met the one and not listening to a tale of true fiction. Lauren hits all the notes you need in stellar contemporary romance: love, lust, insecurity, friendship with fidelity, conflict that doesn't make you want to throw the book, and a happily ever after. The bonus short story epilogue is icing on the cake as are the sweet teasers of books to come from these various Bay Area ballers and their hive. Yet another 4.5 stars for an author and narrators who consistently deliver without becoming candidates for the same-old-same-old file.

    I loved this sweet and swoony romance!

    I loved this sweet and swoony friends to lovers romance! Nadia is a prominent business woman who runs a professional football team. She has wanted to date but it seems the men she meets are intimidated by her power and wealth. She has pretty much given up on finding love. Crosby is a successful, sexy baseball player who gets taken advantage of by the women he dates over and over again. He has decided to give up on dating for awhile. Crosby is Nadia's brothers best friend but they have been long time friends as well. When they meet at a wedding, they begin flirting which leads to more. Since they are both so busy with their carreers, they decide to enter into a friends with benefits relationship. Nadia may be a virgin physically but she knows what she wants. Now that she has found the right man, she isn't afraid to ask for it. When Crosby learns that Nadia is a virgin, he doesn't run, but is surprised by how much he wants to be the man to give her all the dirty pleasures she dreams about. But can these flirty friends go back to just friends when both their seasons ramp up? This is a fun & flirty, sweet and off the charts sizzling romance with enough heartfelt emotion to make you swoon and cheer for these delightful characters. Nadia is strong and sassy, and Crosby is sweet with a deliciously dirty talking mouth, making them perfect together and their chemistry is explosive! I also love all their friends and teammates who were funny, supportive and loyal. What a great start to the Rules of Love series!
    Narrators, Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon really captured the feel of this sizzling friends to lovers romance. They really embody these characters flawlessly, expertly conveying their humor, confidence and caring natures. I really loved both their performances. Oh and you definitely have to stick around for the extra teasers at the end, they are a real treat!

    5 Plus One-ing With the Best Man Stars!!

    I absolutely adore friends-to-lovers books and when it’s a sports romance AND written by Lauren Blakely I know I’m going to have a GREAT time reading, listening to and/or doing both. The Virgin Rule Book is the latest example of why whenever she releases a book that it’s a no-brainer for me. In this example, I was able to listen to Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton do a phenomenal job of bringing Crosby and Nadia to life for me.

    I listened with glee as these two maneuvered around an attraction they’ve both been hiding from each other for years when they decide to up the ante so to speak and become friends with benefits. I mean it makes sense. Both of them are single and have events both professionally and personally (Nadia’s brother is getting married) they’re attending so why not be each other’s Plus One? Seems simple on paper, but not so simple in real life.

    The chemistry between these two is intoxicating. I laughed so many times while listening. Their text messages alone had me snort laughing more often than not. I loved how their friendship, already pretty solid, grew in leaps and bounds as they spent more and more time together. As they’re navigating their way to the physicality of their relationship, Nadia has a surprise for Crosby that was a shocker and hence the reason there’s rules!! I fell madly in love with Crosby when he didn’t let Nadia’s disclosure fluster him. He’s on board 100%!! And these two are SMOKING HOT together!!

    What’s clear to me as I listened my way through this book that there’s no way these two don’t belong together on an every single day basis. But there’s rules and promises that have been made… are they willing to risk their friendship? Will broken promises lead to tension with other friends and families? Can they both have the forever love they thought they’d never find?

    This book is sensational. Ms. Mallon and Mr. Hamilton are brilliant in their narration of this book. They truly brought Crosby, Nadia and the cast of secondary characters to life for me. The minute I finished it I was ready to listen again! I appreciate so much how Ms. Blakely picks the exact right narrators for her books allowing me to gleefully listen to her words the narrators bringing them to life!! If you’re looking for a great listen that will consistently bring a smile to your face and have you swooning all over the place, the The Virgin Rule Book is your next read/listen!!

    Sweet and Sexy Friends To Lovers

    From start to finish, THE VIRGIN RULE BOOK is Lauren Blakely perfection, and I just really loved everything about it. From the banter, the slow burn to full-on conflagration, the respect and like that Nadia and Crosby have for each other that makes for the perfect segue into desire, this is a book that I will both remember and recommend, and I enjoyed every delectable moment.

    I really like that Nadia is a strong savvy woman that knows what she wants...and what she doesn't. Lauren writes women that are well aware of what they bring to the table, and own it all the way, and this is what makes her books some of my absolute favorites. And Crosby, well, I fell in love with him right off the proverbial bat (see what I did there?). Underneath all the testosterone and swagger is another one of Lauren's men that is the epitome of swoon-worthy, and he is just wonderful.

    I have found with audiobooks, even with a great story, that the narration can either make or break the experience. Lauren has a knack for casting the perfect talent to voice her characters, and Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton are magic together here. They bring Nadia and Crosby to life in the best way, and made listening to an already great story next level.

    THE VIRGIN RULE BOOK is five stars worth of listening pleasure that has me anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. A definitely recommends from this happy listener.
