Most Irresistible Guy (Most Valuable Playboy, #0.5)

When he wrapped his arms around me and pulled me close at my brother’s wedding, my heart beat faster. When we danced into the night, my mind raced far ahead, entertaining all the possibilities I’d longed for. And later, when Cooper told me he’d won the starting quarterback job before he shared the news with anyone else, I started to believe we could be more. But I didn’t want to lose him as a friend, so I chose to focus on him solely as m...

    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).

    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!

    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...

    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.
  • J.E. Benoit
    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...
  • Sandra Shipman ~ Two Book Pushers
    Most Irresistible Guy is a short prequel for Most Valuable Player. You can read it either before or after but if you haven’t read MVP yet then I recommend reading it. It’s a fun little treat before the main course. I loved Cooper and Violet in MVP so it awesome to get a bit more of them before they heat up!
  • Georgina
    Great prequel! Both Cooper and Vi need to stop playing around and wasting time. Violet has been Cooper's cheerleading and lifting him up. They have lightly flirted back and forth. Enough years have gone past with these two bestfriends. Look forward to reading the next installment, Most Valuable Playboy.
  • Stacy
    This was a fast read & a good introduction to the characters. Now I need to get the full story on these two characters & see if I can find out what happens. Will they get a HEA or is this the beginning of the end to a great friendship.
  • Meighan
    2.5 starsWish it was longer! I would have loved to get more of their backstory, more of how Violet developed and held on to her feelings for Cooper. A great little build up to Most Valuable Playboy, which was a really great book.
  • Angela Crockett
    A must read!I enjoyed the romance between the two best friends. Why do we deny our true loves? Sometimes it is better to grow and mature to better appreciate what you have. This was that type of story. When you can feel the bond. Highly recommended
  • Cassandra
    Short but AmazingThis gives us the prequel most Most Valuable Playboy and it's really nice to read Violet's POV. I enjoyed it and even though I've read Most Valuable Playboy before it makes me want to read it all over again. Great short story by Lauren Blakely.
  • Kyle Hakim
    Violet has a crush on Cooper, her brother’s bestfriend. She supported him wholly and even lifted up his mood when he lost a game. She was a hairdresser. She tried to suppress her feelings towards him. She bid for him in the auction and he kissed her in front of everybody.
  • Jodie's W.I.N.E. List
    Quick readThis very quick read sets up some background for the start of their relationship. They don't have their HEA yet, but you can see it developing. After reading this one, you'll definitely n Ed to pick up the next so be prepared to one-click it.
  • Amber H
    Beautifully Written & Way Too ShortThis story ends all too abruptly! The way the author describes Vi’s feelings is fun, quirky, and absolutely flawless. I can’t wait to delve further into this tale of love!
