Review: I Think I Love You (Oxford #5) by Lauren Layne

Posted on

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.


My Review

“He was the perfect combination of elusive and attainable. He had a bit of that will he ever settle down vibe going on, with just enough Midwest niceness to make him the of guy women wanted to settle down with.”

“You’re you. We’re us. I trust you in a way I don’t trust anyone else.”

“This was what it meant to ache for a kiss. To want it so badly, a little piece of you would die if you didn’t feel his lips on your, like she couldn’t survive if Hunter didn’t kiss her….”

I Think Love You is a super sweet and swoon-worthy romance. It is the ultimate friends to lovers/workplace romance. The characters are real and easy to connect with. Their story will suck you in and keep you glued to the pages. It’s the kind of story that you can easily devour in a single day and that will leave you with a ridiculous smile on your face.

I Think I Love You is a fantastic addition to The Oxford Series and follows the story of Hunter and Brit. Hunter and Brit are the best of friends. Brit knows she can count on him for anything. So, when her dating life produces less than perfect results, Brit decides she needs help in the seduction department. And who better to call on for help, but her BFF, Hunter…When Hunter hears Brit’s request, his world is knocked off its axis. To him, Brit is the total package and even though he knows he shouldn’t, he can’t help but agree to his friends request. Will Hunter and Brit be able to keep things strictly friendly? Or will all these lessons uncover a passion unlike any Hunter or Brit have ever experienced? There’s only one way to find out….

I absolutely adored Brit and Hunter together. They had the best friendship and the most explosive chemistry. It’s the kind of chemistry that is so palpable, you can feel it oozing off the pages. It’s the kind of chemistry that everyone around them can see and will be left wondering how long Brit and Hunter can ignore it. I knew from the moment that Brit came up with her “I need to learn to seduce” plan that things were going to head in a certain direction. But, that didn’t stop me from enjoying the story. Nope. There is just something about a Lauren Layne book. I can’t help but get lost in the characters and their story. And when it comes to Hunter and Brit…I just couldn’t get enough of the two of them. I mean their pull was just insane and I appreciated how careful and real they were about what was happening. They knew the risks, but sometimes you have to jump in order to get what you’ve always wanted…

I Think I Love You was the perfect icing on the cake to The Oxford Series. I loved everything about it from beginning to end. From smart writing to a sweet story-line. To familiar faces and happy endings. To swoon-worthy romance and light drama. This story was just the read I was looking for.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book via the publisher & NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*
