Publisher Description

Indulge in this collection that begins with Mr. Right Now and Captain Romance -- two romances between virgins and athletes that complete the bestselling RULES OF LOVE series. 

Mr. Right Now

I’ve got a problem. After a dozen failed dates - but who’s counting - I’m done hunting for Mr. Right. I’m more than ready to cash in my V-card, and at this point I’ll gladly hand it over to Mr. Right Now. When I go out with my friends for a night on the town, I bump into the perfect candidate. A guy from my past who kissed like a dream but took off before we could say goodbye. The swoony, charming pro athlete is back in the city and he’s as ready to help me with my project as he is to win baseball games. The next morning, I’m deliciously satisfied and I know I’ve chosen wisely. But when he leaves again, I can’t stop wondering -- what if Mr. Right Now is actually Mr. Right? And how do I get him back?

Captain Romance

I don’t have luck on my side when it comes to romance. That’s why I’m laser focused on my career as a sports reporter and making a mark as a woman in this tough field.

When one of the city’s baseball stars asks me to spend a night on the town, I have to draw the line. Just friends, I say. 

He’s good with that.

Very good with that.

So good that I start falling for my new friend.

Of all the swoony, charming, thoughtful men in this big city, why is the one I want thoroughly off-limits? But if I want a chance with the guy they call Captain Romance, I’m going to have to put more than my heart on the line. 

This collection also includes Kiss Your Tulips, Limo Bang, and DogFishing, three stories set in the Rules of Love world.

Good but I wanted more

The stories were good but I wanted more of each one. I felt that each story would have been much better if they were individual books with an expanded story. I enjoyed them so much but they were over to soon. This book was an interesting wrap up to the series. I love Lauren’s books. Until next time y’all happy reading.

Low angst & lots of love in this boxset of five novellas

The Virgin Scorecard is book four in the “Rules of Love” series and features five fabulous novellas: Mr. Right Now, Captain Romance, Kiss Your Tulips, Limo Bang, and Dog Fishing. These are perfect to read when you don’t have much time and will have you smiling as they have low angst and insta-love. In signature Blakely fashion, there is plenty of wit and smolder, with swoony heroes and heroines you will route for.

Mr. Right Now is a sports themed romance and second chance love. High school sweethearts Shane and Clementine reconnect and their easy banter and smokin’ hot chemistry was like no time has passed. Even with his career and travel demands, she was never far from his mind, and after a little hiccup, they find their HEA. Shane was coming off a recent heartbreak, but it goes to show you what happens when you are with the right person. I loved his honesty and sweet words.

Clementine is a virgin with a terrible track record with past dates which had me cracking up. She was so genuine, adorable, and easy-going, and I was so happy she finally got her HEA with sexy Shane!

Captain Romance was friends-to-lovers featuring Erin and Sullivan. Our hero is also a pro-ball player and has been smitten with one of the reporters covering his team for years, but needs to keep his dirty desires in check as she is off limits! I really felt his longing and her attraction to him and loved how they took their time to get to know one another. This slow burn was worth the wait as they developed a really strong friendship first which made their sexy times that much more special. I love how they brought out the best in each other, how well they got along, and how they each admired and supported the other’s career. My only wish is that she wasn’t a virgin. I realize this is the title of the book, but felt it was awkward in this situation and not necessary. But other than that, I truly loved this couple!

Kiss Your Tulips features Drew and Frankie. Drew finds love in the local flower shop when he meets the owner and is immediately smitten. He’s loyal and thoughtful, and almost too good to be true, but this is a romance written by Lauren Blakely after all, and her heroes are always loaded with tons of character! He loves Frankie’s sense of humor and rises to the occasion as they banter with their love of puns.
Limo Bang features Marlow and Hudson, two billionaire rival owners of the San Francisco baseball teams who can flirt like the best of them. This one is uber-sexy as they make bets that only the rich and famous can do, and always end up naked!

DogFishing is only a chapter and features Nova, the last of the girlfriends to find love with the female comedian we met in Mr. Right Now.
