Irresistibly Yours

Irresistibly Yours (Oxford #1) by Lauren Layne

Publication Date: October 6, 2015

Publisher: Loveswept

Synopsis:

Cole Sharpe has been a freelance editor for Oxford men’s magazine for years. He’s finally ready to take a more permanent editor position with the magazine. It should be his, no problem. All he has to do is say he wants it.

When he does, Cole is shocked to learn that he has to apply for the position. Not only that, but Cole has competition. Female competition in tiny tomboy, Penelope.

Penelope Pope needs the Oxford sports editor job. She’s moved to New York to escape her past in Chicago. This job is exactly what she needs to pick up the pieces of her life and career.

Neither Cole nor Penelope is looking for love. Cole likes his playboy ways and Penelope is not his type. She’s all tomboy, while he likes curves. So, why can’t he stop thinking about her?

Penelope knows she’s just one of the guys–always destined to be in the friend zone. She’s fine with that. So, why does being around Cole make her long for more?


My rating: 5 out of 5 stars


Irresistibly Yours is the first book in the Oxford series, but it’s a spin off of the popular Stiletto series by Lauren Layne. I have read a couple of the Stiletto books in the past and thought they were a lot of fun, so I requested an electronic copy of Irresistibly Yours from NetGalley.

Irresistibly Yours was just as much fun to read as the Stiletto books. The chemistry between Cole and Penelope was hot! I liked their easy banter with each other and the way they tried to avoid falling for each other.

I would recommend Irresistibly Yours to readers that like a quick paced contemporary romance. Some of the characters from the Stiletto series are mentioned, but Irresistibly Yours can be read as a standalone novel. I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in the series about Lincoln, Cole’s friend and co-worker.
