    Sexy, Fun, & Sweet!

    So, Sexy, Fun and Flirty! This was such a fantastic read. I just can’t get enough of Lauren Layne’s Stories. This one took my breath away, making me giddy and happy. Get ready for the hot suit wearing guys of Oxford Magazine, some serious fun, a whole lot of sweetness and off the charts sexy in this incredibly entertaining story. Taylor Carr has landed a job at Oxford Magazine the headquarters of Hot Guys and these polished, successful, serious, clean cut guys are just her type. Except for one of the part time writers who seems to constantly gets under her skin. But when Taylor’s boyfriend of ten months Bradley Calloway backs out on move in day, into a new two bedroom apartment, she is in need of a roommate fast. Nick Ballantine has been a constant thorn in Taylor’s side since the first day on the job when he labeled her the Ice Princess. The last several months their animosity and heat towards one another is off the charts. Their conflict is full of the best one liners, great verbal sparing and sizzling Chemistry. So when Nick volunteers to be her new roommate in front of Bradley, she accepts. These two clash and it is ridiculously fantastic! I loved being absorbed into all, the bickering and the tension. And when they combust Lauren Layne brings it, with some great sexy scenes. I also enjoyed getting to see other characters from previous stories as well. I enjoyed the animosity of their relationship immensely and loved the many great moments between them and I couldn’t get enough. You do not want to miss Taylor and Nick’s story! Loved, Loved, Loved it! Highly Recommended! Received an ARC through Tasty Book Tours via NetGalley and voluntarily wrote an honest review.

    Another amazing read in the Stiletto/Oxford world! As expected in a Lauren Layne novel there is plenty of snark, humor, yummy men, and romance. To the outsider it would appear that Taylor Carr and Nick Ballantine can't stand each other. Funny though how there is such a fine line between love and hate and that line is getting pretty fuzzy between these two. When Taylor finds herself with an apartment she can't afford and desperately in need of a roommate how can she afford to turn down Nick's request to move in. Taylor's determined to keep things platonic. Nick might have different ideas though! This is one for the must read list! I highly recommend it.

    What a great pair!

    I really enjoyed this enemies to lovers story. This was a pretty quick read and I found myself flying through this fun little book. This is the fourth book in the Oxford series and while fans of the series will enjoy seeing some of their favorite characters, this book could easily be read as a stand alone novel. This was one of those books that I could just totally lose myself in and ended up reading it for hours at a time. It definitely lived up to all of my expectations. This book is about Taylor and Nick. The book starts out with short chapters showing some of their history with each other which I thought really set the stage of the book quite well. Taylor is planning to move in with her boyfriend, Bradley, but is surprised to find a break up note at the new apartment. When Taylor starts looking for a roommate, Nick decides to taker her up on it and the stage is set for a whole lot of fun. I thought that Taylor and Nick had wonderful chemistry together. Each of these characters had some very painful moments in their past that really shaped how they deal with life. It became quite apparent that Taylor was very misunderstood because of how she was raised. Nick is a really good guy and sometimes others have taken advantage of his kindness. These two just seemed to fit together perfectly once they gave each other a chance. I really liked the way this book was written. The characters were wonderfully developed. Their chemistry with each other was intense and their banter was a lot of fun. I liked the fact that it took this pair some time to really get together since it felt more realistic. I must admit that I was pretty sick of Bradley before the book was over but Taylor and Nick seemed to feel the same way so I guess that is okay. I would highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This is a fun little book that tells a really wonderful story. Lauren Layne is one of my go to authors when I am in the mood for contemporary romance and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept via NetGalley.

    Another winner.

    Lauren Layne is one of a handful of authors that can break your heart, while keeping you smiling the whole time. Readers don't have to like every character, but by the end, it's hard not to love them. I Knew You Were Trouble is an ideal example of that. Taylor is a little much at first meeting, but as more is revealed about her, it's easy to understand why. She hides painful insecurities. Nick pushes her, because he sees the beautiful woman behind the abrasive attitude. Another winner.
