Review: Irresistibly Yours

Book Review: Irresistibly Yours, by Lauren Layne

Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures he’s got the inside track. Then his boss drops a bombshell: Cole has competition. Female competition, in the form of a fresh-faced tomboy who can hang with the dudes—and write circles around them, too. Cole usually likes his women flirty and curvy, but he takes a special interest in his skinny, sassy rival, if only to keep an eye on her. And soon, he can’t take his eyes off her.

Penelope Pope knows all too well that she comes off as just one of the guys. Since she’s learned that wanting more usually leads to disappointment, Penelope’s resigned to sitting on the sidelines when it comes to love. So why does Cole make her want to get back in the game? The man is as arrogant as he is handsome. He probably sees her as nothing more than a barrier to his dream job. But when an unexpected kiss turns into a night of irresistible passion, Penelope has to figure out whether they’re just fooling around—or starting something real.
Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: October 2015

Mature content: yes

Review: Irresistibly Yours is the first book I've ever read by Lauren Layne, and I honestly don't know how I missed out all this time! It is funny, heart warming, refreshing and I literally could not put it down! I loved that both main characters had flaws, weaknesses and insecurities. It made them realistic and believable. And I loved how perfect they were for each other. I was rooting for them from page one, even before they exchanged their first words. 

The plot is predictable, yes, but then that happens in most romance novels. In this case, the author manages to turn predictable into something that will keep you up late, make you laugh and that has a totally fulfilling happily ever after. So yes, this is a must read for anyone who loves romantic fiction and contemporary romance!

Happy Wednesday!
