They were "just friends." Until one tried to teach the other the art of seduction ... And became thoroughly seduced.
I THINK I LOVE YOU
Oxford - Book 5
Releasing July 10, 2018
A game of seduction between two best friends goes deliciously wrong in an irresistible Oxford Novel that brims with wit and sexual tension. Library Journal hails Layne’s work as “exemplary contemporary romance.”
Brit Robbins knows that dating in New York City is hard—she just hoped to have it mastered by age thirty. But after yet another promising suitor says they have no sparks, Brit decides it’s time to torch her dating game and try a new plan. And who better to coach Brit through the art of seduction than the guy who first gave her the “let’s be friends” card?
Hunter Cross has always figured there’s nothing his best friend Brit can do to surprise him. But Brit’s request is a surprise he doesn’t see coming—and one he’s definitely not prepared for. Hunter and Brit have always been careful to keep things perfectly platonic, but the fake dates and faux flirting are starting to feel like the real deal. And soon Hunter realizes he has taught Brit too well. Not only has she become an expert at seduction, the man becoming thoroughly seduced is him.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I think I love you is the last book in the series and is making me sad. I began the Stiletto series back when it was first published and now it's over. I didn't want it to be and I wanted to see more secondary characters getting their happy end.
The book was everything I was expecting it to be. The friends to lovers genre is one of my favorites and the work in this book was well done. There was the awkward transition from best friends to lovers which was understandable and the jealousy. Brit was a good heroine and I liked that she stood up to Hunter and called him on his actions. She wasn't waiting on him, and in the end she made the decision on what she was going to do in her future. She is one of the best heroines in the seires. Hunter took too much time trying to decide what he wanted in some departments and in others he knew every single detail. He was hot and cold and that bothered me somewhat. I was expecting them to get together way sooner and I felt like we missed some things in the romance department. I wanted them to be a couple and happy for a while and there were always obstacles.
Overall, the book was satisfying and it was a great ending to the seires. The epilogue was lovely and we got a closure on our characters.
