This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

I know I love Lauren Layne’s books
Knowing that this is the final book of Lauren Layne's Oxford series, I went into it feeling nostalgic, excited, and a bit sad. I have loved these characters. I have enjoyed every minute of time I spent with them. And I will miss them terribly.
I think it's fitting that Lauren Layne concludes with Hunter and Brit's story. We've seen flashes of them throughout the series, and we knew--as did their friends and co-workers--that there was more to this whole "we're just best friends" thing, even if they had no clue. Fortunately, the clue hits them big time and in the most delightful, fulfilling way.
It starts as a favor: Brit wants Hunter to help her become more appealing to men. What neither anticipates is that she will become more appealing to HIM, and vice-versa. My favorite moments in this book were the little ones as Hunter and Brit discovered that they might just love each other romantically: the way he notices how she looks in jeans, the way she reacts when he touches the small of her back. FABULOUS.
Not that anything will come easily to them. Lauren Layne sets up their inevitable conflict, going in a direction that is neither predictable nor hackneyed. This shows respect for her story and her characters. I enjoyed how she incorporated characters from other books in the series, whether as friends, bosses, or a Greek chorus of sorts. They help Hunter and Brit understand how they feel about each other and the problems they face, and they help them figure out what to do about it.
The epilogue is bittersweet, and you can sense that it is for Lauren Layne, too. These two series and their characters have brought us joy, broken our hearts, and delivered the quiver. They have been our friends, and for that, I am quite grateful.
I know I loved This!
I was totally swept away with this friends to lovers story. This was so sexy, so hot, and so sweet, I couldn’t put it down. Lauren Layne brings it once again. Filled with sexy, flirty, and witty banter and innuendo that will make your heart flutter, leave you breathless and loving every word. And that is why for me, Lauren Layne’s books are a automatic purchase.
Britt Robbins is tired of being, single. Her last three boyfriends had all gave her the talk, telling her that she was a great girl, but they just weren’t feeling it. What was wrong with her, guys never saw her as girlfriend material, she was always in the perpetual friend zone. What was she lacking, or missing? She needed a plan, she needed to make guys start seeing her as a woman rather than just a friend. Britt needed a lesson in the art of seduction. And she knew exactly who could help her, Hunter Cross her best friend.
Poor Hunter, his feelings for Britt has always been platonic, but he wasn’t stupid. He just doesn’t get why, any guy wouldn’t see that they were lucky to have a girl like Britt. But when she ropes him in to help her work on her “A” game he soon finds himself, seeing Britt, in a whole new light. Britt is awesome with her next door, girl charm as she finds out her sexy Hunter is really a sweetheart and seeing him fight his feelings for his best friend is touching and emotional. And when they are together they are hot, hot, hot! But what happens, when Hunter must return home, to run the family company? You have got to read this to find out.
I absolutely loved this book, not only did we see Brit and Hunter’s story, but I also got to connect with all the other Stiletto and Oxford couples as they make appearances throughout the story and see where they are in their lives. And it was great to see that they are all, still very much in love. It was the perfect conclusion to these series, it was like going home again. (sigh) Beautiful Story! Happy Reading Everyone!

I Think I love You is an adorable friends to lovers romantic comedy that drew me in from the first page. Brit and Hunter have been best friends for six years, Brit can't understand why she can't seem to keep a guy interested past the third date. So she asks her BFF, Hunter, to teach her the art of seduction. Hunter reluctantly agrees to help her and that's when all the fun begins. I really enjoyed the witty banner between these two characters, and how they navigated, each in their own way, their new found romance. This is the first book I have read in this series and this book definitely makes me want to read the entire series. I whole heartedly recommend this book.
