Book Review - Irresistibly Yours by Lauren Layne

ABOUT THE BOOK


Meet the men of Oxford magazine! In the first captivating spin-off of Lauren Layne’s Sex, Love & Stiletto series, a not-so-friendly battle of the sexes turns into a scorching office romance.

Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures he’s got the inside track. Then his boss drops a bombshell: Cole has competition. Female competition, in the form of a fresh-faced tomboy who can hang with the dudes—and write circles around them, too. Cole usually likes his women flirty and curvy, but he takes a special interest in his skinny, sassy rival, if only to keep an eye on her. And soon, he can’t take his eyes off her.

Penelope Pope knows all too well that she comes off as just one of the guys. Since she’s learned that wanting more usually leads to disappointment, Penelope’s resigned to sitting on the sidelines when it comes to love. So why does Cole make her want to get back in the game? The man is as arrogant as he is handsome. He probably sees her as nothing more than a barrier to his dream job. But when an unexpected kiss turns into a night of irresistible passion, Penelope has to figure out whether they’re just fooling around—or starting something real

REVIEW

I absolutely loved this book.  I always love Lauren Layne's stories, but I am also a huge baseball fan.  Combining two of my favorite things resulted in an epic combination.  So often in this story I felt like I've been Penelope so many times in my life.  It's hard being a female sports fan!  Cole was easy to like as a character and his character believably transformed throughout the story.

OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
