    4 Laying the Groundwork Stars* * * * Spoiler Free- Free and Live Now!I happened to love the book, Most Valuable Playboy. It was a delicious best pals to lovers tale and told oh, so well. We got all of the feels from Cooper's point of view and knew what was at stake for the each of these characters... the Bestie they were and how they needed each other. In this quick novella, we have a bit of back story and see how both Cooper and Violet interact...

    Ainda não li Most Valuable Playboy e Most irresistible guy mostra o que se passa antes do livro. É curtinho e gostosinho de ler, com enredo tradicional de ele-é-meu-amigo-e-amigo-do-meu-irmão-não-posso-arriscar-nossa-amizade-embora-o-ame-desde-o-útero-da-minha-mãe-mas-agora-algo-aconteceu-entre-nós-e-estou-num-impasse-entre-me-entregar-ou-me-acovardar (muito demorado escrever usando - entre as palavras, nunca mais farei isso).
  • Patricia Lopes
    A rather entertaining prequel, nice introduction to the characters, I wonder what is coming next??
  • Annie
    I wish it was longer!

    This is a sample, like what you'd download as a Kindle sample, to see if you want the whole book. It's billed as a prequel novella, and it's free. But it's really just an overly long, repetitious sample. The characters are fine, the setting and premise is fine, but I would expect a novella to be more like a short story, somewhat complete in itself. Not just a tease to get you to buy the first one in the series.

    This was a wonderful surprise novella from Lauren Blakely! I loved Most Valuable Playboy so much and loved getting into Violet's head pre-MVP to see how things played out according to her. It is such sweet prequel and I just adore Cooper & Violet! I loved it so much I had to reread MVP again after it because I needed more!
  • Shannon
    Really fun and quick prequel to Most Valuable Playboy. I liked getting the "beginning" of things from Violet's pov, seeing Cooper through her eyes. I really loved that their friendship was so important to both of them!

    OMG That chemistry, love is in the air.Starting again Most Valuable Playboy right now.

    review to come.
  • Sandra
    2.5 Star. Short prequel novella. Obviously an intro to a full length novel about these characters it doesn’t really stand alone as it is simply and intro to Vi & Cooper. I am still interested in reading the full length novel but I would say don’t bother with this one.

  • Janet Harrall
    This prequel is a brilliant taster of what's to come in the next story. I love stories of best friends with that underlying heat and tension between them. By the time I got the last chapter I was hot under the collar.Cooper and Violet have reached the point in their lives where things could change. Violet fantasises about become more than friends but would never act on her feelings for fear of losing his friendship. Cooper does a lot of flirting ...
  • MJ
    Well would you look at that. Lauren Blakely is a sly one. Giving us a bit of Violet's POV from Most Valuable Playboy. A book I loved that is the usual wonderful that only Ms. Blakely can bring, in the sexy, fun-loving characters of Cooper and Violet. Two besties who find that a fake relationship to help Cooper's image and save him from a particularly aggressive woman may lead to something more.This little snippet gives us a bit more being in Viol...
  • Rhonda Brant
    Very short, but very entertaining story about Violet and her brothers best friend Cooper, with whom she has had a crush on since she was a little girl. I really enjoyed this short story, it is a cliffhanger, but it’s one that you want to get the next installment. Cooper is the new quarterback for the local NFL team and Violet is his biggest fan. Things are definitely hot between the two of them, but will their special friendship keep them from ...
  • Brandan WH
    A great startI read the synopsis for the main book so was pleased that this prequel was available ave for free. Now I feel that I can go into your main book with some much context. We learn how long Violet has had a crush on Cooper. But, she’s decided that their friendship is not worth more than the possibility of a relationship. She’s never acted on her attraction but knows that she can’t lose him as a friend. This little taste was more th...

So between fantasy and the little flirting, she'll have to make do, right?Favorite passage: After all, he was my first ever crush way back wh...
  • Joycee
    Happy ending indeed!I enjoy this trope - long-time unrequited crush-into-love.I know this is just a prequel, and Coop and Vi’s story is truly “Most Valuable Playboy” ... but I’m selfish and don’t want to read about any other (even if temporary) obstacles to their HEA. I loved all the interactions and actions already. I guess maybe I’m just missing out on a similar buildup to Jones & Jillian’s tale ...
  • Kristen Holt
    I started reading this thinking, this sounds really familiar. Why does this storyline sound so familiar? Because I'm so quick on the uptake, I figured out that this is a prequel - book .5 that happens before Most Valuable Playboy.Usually, I'm all over anything Lauren Blakely writes, but this one failed to amuse. I learned absolutely nothing new, and it was literally a condensed retelling of the first part of book 1. I'm a little miffed, but glad ...
  • Opinionated
    Kinda sweet....I thought this was a sweet story until it got to the end and finished abruptly. Obviously this was some kind of prequel, but I was disappointed that this wasn't clearly pointed out in the email that recommended the purchase.I have read, and enjoyed, Blakely's work before, but I would have preferred to have been made more aware of this book's status up front, rather than be left feeling 'tricked' into this acquisition.

    Yay! I love Lauren Blakely and I loved this surprise novella that she just released! Most Valuable Playboy was a great book and I was excited to see that this was a prequel to it from Violet's POV. It was a super quick read but it was so sweet and it was cool to see the events of the auction from Violet's perspective. If you've read Most Valuable Playboy and wanted more of Cooper and Violet, be sure to grab this!
  • Carol Ann
    This novella is sweet and sexy with fun banter. It gives the backstory for Most Valuable Playboy, which I adored!! Violet gives us her point of view about her almost lifetime crush on Cooper, and we get to see what she is thinking as she tries to keep Cooper in the friend zone. I enjoyed the fact that Violet is a hair stylist and cuts Cooper's hair so he looks good while playing quarterback. Love the way Lauren Blakely writes, and the only compla...
