Lauren Layne’s Sex, Love & Stiletto series simmers to a boil as two high-powered magazine writers find love amid a war of words.
As a leading columnist for Stiletto, Grace Brighton has built a career warning women about rotten, cheating liars. She just never suspected her fiancé would be one of them. After Grace takes a heart-mending hiatus, her first assignment is to go on a couple of dates with a counterpart from the men’s magazine Oxford and report her impressions. Grace 1.0 may have been instantly smitten with the gorgeous correspondent, but Grace 2.0 has sworn off relationships for six months, and she’s not falling for his outstanding bod and trophy-winning kisses . . . or is she?
Jake Malone wants to get back to the fly-by-night, who-knows-what’s-next guy he used to be, and he knows exactly how to do it. Oxford is adding a travel section, and Jake—with no wife and no kids and a willingness to live anywhere, eat anything, do everything—is perfect for the job . . . except that his playboy reputation makes his new editor nervous. To get the gig, he must agree to a fluffy joint article with Stiletto. But after just one date with snooty, sumptuous, sensational Grace Brighton, Jake starts taking this assignment a whole lot more seriously.
So, I'm now a HUGE Lauren Layne fan. Not that I wasn't before but meaning, mid way through the book I looked her up on Facebook, followed her page, signed up for her weekly emails, pre ordered "Cuff Me" ... Well you get the point. I love her style of writing and love how I fall in love with every single character, every single time. Grace and Jake, my favorite so far. Loved their connection, loved their story, loved the comedy, loved everything about this book! Jake and Grace have been assigned to work together for an article. After a nine year break up and not wanting anything to do with men, Grace all but jumps at the opportunity. Jake however, only took it on with a couple conditions.. He gets to do the travel section after this is through and travel the world but first..... They have to go on five dates and right an article after each one. The readers get to pick who is falling for who faster if at all etc..
What they do to each other back and forth is hysterical! Of course there's all the in between dates too and meeting in the hallways at work... Lunch trips far away from people watching. Jakes tracks gig happens just a few days before their finale after the 5th date. He has to go to Costa Rica sooner then his Boss originally thought and now has to leave Grace. Read to find out if he does indeed go! You won't be disappointed! Finished book one yesterday, book two today and starting book three right now! Love love love her books!!!!!!!
