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.

Every time I open the cover of a Lauren Layne book I do so with a smile on my face. Why? Because I know for a fact that I’m about to experience a fun, romantic story that will take me away from the stresses of life and, that before it’s all over, I’ll be sighing over the characters, the story, and the romance. And, guess what…it happened again. This sweet friends to lovers story brought all the feels and also the heat!
Brit and Hunter are best friends. They hang out, they have fun, they support each other but they don’t see each other a possible romantic partners. So, when Brit needs Hunter to help her practice her seduction skills, they’re not worried about the situation getting out of hand. However, as the fake dates and flirtations start to stir feelings in both of them, their story really takes off. Both Brit an Hunter find themselves outside their comfort zone and soon enough they’re pushing against the inevitable pull of desire and love. Their chemistry is hot, their banter is fun, and these two are the perfect match. I loved these characters and was rooting for them to find their happily ever after from the very beginning.
Sadly, this is the last book in this series. It was good to see the other characters playing a role in this story and I was glad to leave this little tight-knit group of friends on a happy note. This is the kind of series that you can read over and over again and know that the characters will always touch your heart, there will always be a smile on your face, and you’ll end up feeling over he moon thanks to the lovely romance. As always, Ms. Layne spoke to my heart with this story and I can’t wait to see what she’ll share with us next!
