    Loved it

    I think I say this every time I read a Lauren Layne book but I can't help myself. I. Loved. This. Book!! Cole was always one of my favorite secondary characters in the Sex, Love, & Stiletto series and I was doing a happy dance when I saw he got his own story. Pairing him up with a character like Penelope was perfection. They are both quick witted, laid back, and full of life. This book is a fun, sexy read that I simply could not put down. Although I was sad when it ended, it is Cole after all, I'm hoping we see these two in future books. I for one can't wait! I highly recommend this book.

    Different but fun

    Different story line but kept my interest. There was a soft side to the characters and a nice story line.

    Simply Fantastic

    I didn't think I will like this book, afterall, I only gave one star to this author's previous book " Love the One you are with". But this book, the pacing was perfect, it has one of the best dialogue EVER. It was sexy and not too dirty, it was funny but maintain its class, it was perfect in so many ways. I will be reading more books by this author that is for sure.

    I love watching those playboys fall!!!

    This fabulous book is Cole's and Penelope's story. Both competing for the same job. Having to work together is no hardship for Cole. She's nothing like he's ever wanted before but he can't help himself, her vulnerability, her smile, and those big brown eyes are his undoing. She's been hurt and emotionally scarred. When Cole Sharpe starts paying attention to her she tries to keep things in the friend zone but he's not having any of that. What an amazing, sizzling HOT, extremely entertaining read! I love watching the playboy fall. Penelope, well, my heart broke for her. She was in no way a weak woman but I'm happy this author wrote her as such a kick butt sports editor. I have some catching up to do as far as most of the secondary characters in this book that have their own stories already in a related series. I can't wait! Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

    Sweet and sexy romance

    I enjoyed this sweet and sexy little romance story. It wasn't my favorite Lauren Layne book but it was still a very good romance. This book is the first in a brand new series so I was eager to jump in right at the beginning. I understand that this series is a spin off from her Sex, Love, & Stilettos series which I still haven't read. I know, I know, I really need to get that series read as soon as humanly possible. This book may share some characters from the earlier series but this is a great place for new readers to jump in because this book reads perfectly as a stand alone novel. The characters were wonderful. I really liked both of them a lot. Penelope was a bit insecure about certain things but very confident in others. She was a bit of a tomboy who prefers beer to wine, hotdogs to fancy food, and absolutely loves sports. She is actually a sports writer who is interviewing for a job as the new sports editor at Oxford. There is just one problem....Cole didn't realize that he had any competition for that job. He simply assumed that it was his for the taking. Cole was still amazingly nice to Penelope even though they both wanted the same thing. The pair are forced to interact with each other in a professional manner but they soon realize that they can't ignore their chemistry. The make a deal with each other and decide to keep it professional Monday through Friday but on the weekends things move to a whole different level. I liked the chemistry between this pair a lot and thought it really worked well in the story. I wanted these two to be together and was glad to pull up a chair and watch it happen. This was a wonderfully written story. It was a bit predictable but it was so well done that it didn't matter to me. I was glad to see this couple get their happy ending. I think that the biggest strength of this book was the characters. They felt real to me and were well developed. I just loved their banter and how they interacted. I thought the pacing of the story was well done and I really had a hard time putting this one down. I would highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. I have read several of Lauren Layne's novels and have found her work to be consistently good. I plan to continue to read her new work and make my way through her other books in the very near future. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.
