Overview

The Blake Boys Book One

This quarterback is making the greatest play of his life...

Quiet bookstore owner Morgan Reed can't wait to lie on the beach on her much-needed tropical vacation, but getting tackled by a tall, green-eyed stranger playing touch football isn't exactly what she had in mind. Neither is falling for said stranger, or going along with the eccentric islander who sends them off with a mock wedding. But all's fair when it comes to vacation romance, and Morgan has plenty of time to get back to reality when she gets home.

When he slams into the beautiful Morgan on the beach and sends her to the infirmary, superstar quarterback Seth Blake insists on helping her recover--if she agrees to share his bungalow with him. Seth is nothing less than smitten, and the best part is that the beauty has no idea who he is.

But when he finds out that their little "wedding" was the real thing, Seth finds himself in a sticky situation. Especially when Morgan finds out the man she fell for isn't at all who he made himself out to be...

I loved this book from beginning til end. I don't know why I haven't reviewed it before not but definite must read. The dialogue was quirky and funny; the characters were engaging and it was really sweet. Can't wait for the sequel to see what Morgan and Seth have been up to.

If your looking for a quick read, this is yout book. Story line was good, love scenes were boring [no steam at all], and ended at a wierd place. I never felt as though i was difficult to get through the book.

Unreal.  The circumstances surrounding the meeting, marriage and love affair between Morgan and Seth defies  probability.  I know this is fiction; but I think good fiction should be believable.

A sweet, simple romantic quick read For the Love of the Game is such a short story, too short to do it or its characters any justice. As a reader of its sequel, MVP, I looked forward to reading For the Love of the Game to get a better insight on the inception of the love affair between Morgan Reed and Seth Blake, whose story continues in MVP. Seth and Morgan are an interracial hero and heroine: she is a black book store owner from a middle-class family in Philadelphia and he is a multimillionaire, professional football quarterback from the heart of Texas. The pair meets on a tropical island vacation: his a welcome break after leading his team to a Superbowl win and hers a much-needed, spur-of-the-moment vacation for the first time in years. When they “accidentally” meet, she has no idea who he is (which I find hard to believe given that her bookstore would’ve certainly carried newspapers and magazines covering his triumphant feats and social life.) They strike up an easy friendship within a few days. Even though he’s attracted to her, Seth does not press her romantically or sexually. On a lark, they decide to get “married” by the island spiritualist. It is only after Morgan leaves the island on her way back to Philly that Seth discovers the marriage is real. He hightails it to the States, shows up at her bookstore and inexplicably convinces her to stay married to him. The rest of the story is Seth and Morgan’s road to getting to know each other. I’d made a special request to read For the Love of the Game because I wanted to get to know Morgan and Seth better as characters and hoped the plot would provide a worthy “backstory” to MVP and many of that story’s secondary characters. This offering simply failed to measure up to much more than a sweet, simple romantic quick read. Perhaps in a longer version, Rhonda Laurel could have fully developed her characters and offered a more interesting plot. -Reviewed by Angela

If only B&N supplied perhaps 100 more words, there would be no review of this project at all

Ok so I tried reading this book for the second time. As I said before I couldn't get pass page 30 but I decided to give it another try because I liked the overview. I love books about alpha males, playboys and jocks. HOW CAN YOU HAVE A HOT QUATERBACK AND NO HOT SEX!!! I am no prude I like my romance novels to include a little something okay. Anyway I gave the book another chance finished it I didn't like how it ended but still planned on buying book 2. I'm not giving up on this author just yet, BUT A WORD OF ADVICE TO THE AUTHOR, BOOK LOVERS LIKE MYSELF BUYS BOOK FOR THE ENTIRE PACKAGE. ADDING STEAMY SEX IS JUST GRAVY. IT WILL EARN YOU LOTS OF FANS. I don' t know a lot of people who wants to read clean romance anymore, not in this time and age that's just boring.
