You can’t see my goofy grin through the screen, but trust me it’s there. Reading a Lauren Layne novel is like eating a truly rich dessert with a whipped cream topping. Her books are decedent with a touch of whimsy.
I Think I Love You is Ms. Layne’s finale to the Oxford series and really the Stiletto series too. It was the best friends to lovers romance I’ve read in years! I was delighted by the end and in tears after the epilogue.
Brit and Hunter have been friends as well as boss/subordinate for more than six years. Brit is the classic, friendly blonde next door. She’s every man’s best friend but never their girlfriend or wife and she’s sick of it. Hunter is her very best friend. She’s met his family, they know everything about each other… so who better to teach her how to appeal to the opposite sex?
I honestly can’t say enough about this book. Hunter and Brit lived the friends to lovers trope which I have seen done a million times, the difference? I believed them. They were weird and quirky with muffin tops and insecurities but they both saw the very best in each other. At the end of the day, they were each other’s very best friend. I felt their natural progression to a romantic relationship and any roadblocks in their relationship felt valid and honest.
This book was low on angst and high on sweet and sexy romance. I absolutely adored this novel. I need to go back and reread both the Stiletto and Oxford series because I am not ready to say goodbye! Brava Lauren Layne!
