Oxford #1
Lauren Layne
Releasing Oct 6th, 2015

Meet the men of Oxford magazine! In the first captivating spin-off of Lauren Layne’s Sex, Love & Stiletto series, a not-so-friendly battle of the sexes turns into a scorching office romance.

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.

Laura's Review:
I first have to say I was majorly distracted by the character name of Penelope Pope. Every time her full name was mentioned all I could think of was the movie Someone Like You where Marisa Tomei is lamenting about her boyfriend cheating on her with Penelope Pope. But, luckily, she isn't referred to by her full name all that often, so I was able to move on. I guess we have to run out of character names at some point??
Anyway, I thoroughly loved this book just as I've come to expect when reading a new book by Lauren Layne. Every one feels like I could be watching it on the big screen as a romantic comedy. While this one felt just a little tiny bit low in the chemistry department compared, I still enjoyed watching Cole and Penelope's relationship develop.
I can't wait to see what Ms. Layne has in store for the rest of the Oxford men!
