Review: I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne (Oxford #5)


I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne is available now!!

Read my thoughts on this friends-to-lovers romance!



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.

First time reading a book by Lauren Layne and I’m happy to say it won’t be the last!

I THINK I LOVE YOU is the last book in the Oxford series, it can be read as a standalone or as part of the series. I personally skipped the previous books and jumped straight into this one—my name is impatient, nice to meet you—and never felt out of the loop. Characters from the previous books make appearances but there is really nothing spoiler-y. You could go read the other books in the series after reading this one if you wanted. I will  definitely be doing that as soon as I have some free time because I fell in love with the characters who appeared in this book and Lauren Layne’s writing is lovely, how come no one told me before? Shame on you! You wanted Lauren’s books all to yourselves! But I understand why y’all did it… let’s move on.

The story itself is not one that I found very refreshing, it is actually a pretty classic friends-to-lovers romance with some office romance mixed in but it is great nonetheless. It is a fast-paced feel-good romance. You’ll feel all warm and fuzzy and content while your reading it and when you finish reading it as well. 

The characters are not the most original either but I bet you’ll love them anyway. They are lovely and smart and funny and they are open to giving their relationship a shot unlike in other friends-to-lovers where the characters refuse to take the step. 

All in all, I loved this book. It was a great escape for a couple of hours and it made me add yet another author to my list of auto-buy authors. If you need a short and sweet read to enjoy this summer then this book should be number one on your list.


Massive thanks to Loveswept/Random House for sending me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review!
