Review: I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne

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.

Kristine's Thoughts:
I Think I Love You is the 5th book in the Oxford series but can be read as a stand alone. Each book is about a different set of characters with the common factor being the Oxford offices and group of friends. I have read all of the previous books and could not wait to get back to the characters and shenanigans at Oxford. Even though it can be read as a stand alone I highly recommend reading the entire series. That way you are familiar with all of the beloved secondary characters who all add a little something to the story. Also, the series is fun and sexy and an absolute joy to read.
It's no secret that Lauren Layne is one of my leading guilty pleasure authors along with her Oxford series so it came as no surprise to me that I adored Brit and Hunter. I am a big fan of a good friends to lovers story and this one delivered. I was in their corner the entire time. A long term friendship and work relationship made the taboo relationship all the more exciting and sexy. I've said it a million times before that the anticipation is even sexier than the between the sheets action and I Think I Love You was filled with both. Both characters were wonderful to get to know and even though I found there to be a little less of the signature banter that Lauren Layne is spectacular at writing, reading will be sure to fall in love with them.
The story was a little bit predictable but that is to be expected once you hit the 5th book in a series. Having said that, it did nothing to lesson my enjoyment of the book. I was happy to get back into the Oxford offices and get a front row seat to yet another blooming relationship. It was a little bittersweet when I turned the last page knowing that there will be no more Oxford and no more office relationships. Over the course of the five books I feel like I got to know the characters and I will miss reading about their adventures in love and relationships.
If you are a fan of contemporary romances that are fun and sexy I would highly recommend I Think I Love You and the entire Oxford series. You won't be disappointed. Do yourself a favour and read the entire series from beginning to end. You'll love the stories and characters as much as I did.
