    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.

    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).

    ➳ Rate: 4,5 / 5 starsThis was soooo good and brought back so many fond memories of this series, it prompted a reread. Friends to lovers sports romance is the best of both worlds. It's also a fake relationship, can we talk about perfect plot?Get this free novella that's a preview of Cooper and Vi's epic story in The Most Valuable Playboy !➳ Order at: Amazon UK ⁕ Amazon US ➳ Follow me on: Blog ⁕ Instagram ⁕ Facebook ⁕ Twitter

    I wish it was longer!
  • Lynne Spreen
    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.

    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!

    review to come.
  • MountainKat
    Sweet story, especially since I knew where it was heading.
  • 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.
  • Marybeth
    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!

They've always been there for each other. He was her prom date when her boyfriend dumped her to go with another girl. Now she would save him from the claws of a hungry cougar that was determined to get her hands on the newest and hottest player in her brother's NFL team. Th...
  • Jamie Peterson
    The context and writing was good, but one of the things that makes this one of my very FAVORITE authors is that she's not known for cliffhangers. Series with shared characters and chronological events, yes, but almost all works by her can be read as a stand alone piece, until this. I realize this says .five in a series, but expected more of a novella type, than a tease. I felt that this was simply the same as getting a free preview of a book, tha...

  • 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...

  • Ana
    A quick novella that sets the stage for the first book in this series, this story gives us insight into how Violet feels about Cooper. Of course, I read this after the book but I still enjoyed seeing their interactions and listening to their banter. Because the story was told from Vi's POV, I was treated to her thoughts and enjoyed seeing her heart flutter around Cooper. It reinforced that these two were perfect for each other. Overall, this was ...
  • 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...
  • Maura
    A very cute little prequel novella to Most Valuable Player, which I like very much. It's a bit of insight into the the friendship that started strengthening between Violet and Cooper at her brother's wedding, about a year before he started playing Quarterback for his NFL team. There's plenty of witty banter between them, some sweet friendship bordering on romance moments and a few moments of building desire between them, but for the one kiss at t...

    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 ...
