Cooper is ready to be auctioned off to help raise money for charity until the woman placing the highest bid is the owner of his team's sister, Maxine. As Cooper tries to figure out how to escape this situation because Maxine could affect whether he is traded... Cooper's best friends little sister Violet, starts bidding to save him.
And just to keep Maxine at bay, Cooper announces that Violet is his girlfriend. Afterwards Cooper wants Violet to keep "pretending" to help his football contract re-negotiations.Violet also wants to keep up the charade to benefit her salon.
With both of them thinking the other has no real feelings or attraction to the other, they're sure to pull this charade off 😄
Plus Cooper has a superstition about abstaining from sex to win the Supper Bowl.That should be enough to keep things platonic right? These two fight the inevitable until a heated kiss sends sparks flying and puts Cooper's vow of chastity in jeopardy.
This fake romance gets really hot and sexy as the two play along. Lauren Blakely really knows how to do steamy with a happy ending 😍
And when it comes to narration.. Only the best will do on a Blakely book!! Zachary Webber's performance is seductive music to my ears. So if you're wondering if this 5 star💫 romance was worth the credit?? Ohh yeah, it was..

Another fun romantic book by Lauren Blakely! This story made my heart smile and my insides a little mushy! It was a very sweet friends to lovers story with NO drama!!! I love how Lauren Blakley can give us a beautiful romance without the need for the unnecessary drama added just for excitement.
Cooper is a great character for me because he is rich and well known but he doesn't act it! He didn't use his money to impress her and the money didn't change who he was. He still hung out with his friends, focused on his love for football and was a complete momma's boy in the best way!
Violet might be my favorite character! She is strong and confident. She stuck to her feelings, never trying to hide behind them or had insecurities! With her business, her family and her love life she always seemed to do what felt right and didn't really play "games". She knew who she was, what she felt and she didn't try to fight it! These too had great chemistry and I think that stems from the years they have known each other. I love friends to lovers because the love is not instantaneous and it is so easy to feel the love between the characters because you know it's not just physical attraction after all those years! Although I will say this book was light on sex but the few scenes it had were very hot!
The narration was spot on as always! You can sure tell the author is an audiobook listener, it shows in her casting choices! Zachary Webber has a great voice and perfect tone for a laid back good guy!

An honest to goodness, feel good, happy go lucky romance told from the hot sexy NFL quarterback’s viewpoint, and guess what? Cooper Armstrong might be a player on the football field but he's definitely not a player when it comes to girls, in fact he's quite the opposite, he's agreed to keep his snake in his pants for the whole season. Violet Pierson is not only his best friend, she's also his best friend’s sister, totally off limits. When they agree to have a fake relationship guaranteed to benefit both of them, they get more than they bargained for. A completely enjoyable feel good friends to lovers romance with wonderful characters, some sexy moments and a good few laughs. Zachery Webber nailed it as Cooper.

I love a good friends to lovers story and Lauren Blakely knocks it out of the park with Gus audio. And OMG Zachary Webber is so freaking amazing bringing this book to life. A must listen.
I keep trying Lauren Blakely blooks and 1/5 times I like one. This one just wasn’t for me. I found myself uninterested in the storyline quite early on.
This author manages to keep you reading from the first till the last word. Loved these characters. She whom has loved him for a very long time. He whom has loved her without being aware. Till they are thrown together to help each other out. It's then that he realises he has loved her all along. A great story. Loved the narration.
