Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway: I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne

I Think I Love You
Oxford Book 5

By: Lauren Layne
Releasing July 10, 2018


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 Thoughts:

First off, let me say I love Lauren Layne's writing, but I'm not a huge fan of friends-to-lovers romance. Here's why, friends-to-lovers plot line can so awkward, because you don't know if you want to cross that line. If you cross that line you cannot return the place you were once at. So, we find Brit and Hunter at this perilous journey in I Think I Love You. Boy it was soooo awkward. However, I think it was made super awkward when Brit basically asked Hunter teacher her be a man-eater. Okay, she didn't say those words, but she wants to know how to catch the right kind of gentleman. Again the perils friends path in jeopardy.

As awkward it was to read the first half of the book, Lauren does capture the readers attention. She does make the story fun to read, with oh my gawd kind of moments, which makes the reads laugh at the situation. Those who have been with the series since the beginning are going to enjoy this story. Those who are picking up the series for the first time are still going to like story. Even though there's a lot of secondary characters in the story from previous books, you don't lose the focus which happens to be on Brit and Hunter. So, if you are one of those people who love that friends-to-lovers story, if will be one don't want to miss. Those who been the series from the get go you don't want leave before you finally get see Brit and Hunter together in I Think I Love You. Overall, it was a fun read. I was laughing and yes biting my nails at some point wondering if Hunter was going to man up and take charge of the situation.
