Yours to Keep

I've been a fan of Lauren Layne ever since I read Only With You back in 2014. (According to Goodreads, I've read seventeen of the author's books which is a good indication that she a) writes a lot and b) is one of the authors whose new releases will generally catch my attention). But I hadn't read a ...

Cuff Me

Cuff Me is the third story in Lauren Layne’s New York’s Finest series, centered around a family of police officers. There are four brothers and one sister, two of whom (Luc and Anthony) featured in the first two stories in the series (Frisk Me and Steal Me) both of which I quite enjoyed, so I wa ...

Is this going to be another case of a professional lady who is perfect in her professional life and a total mess i ...

Runaway Groom

I’m not a big follower of The Bachelor or any other reality dating shows. While I’ve seen the occasional episode, I don’t have the patience to follow week after week of fabricated drama. But I will admit, the premise sometimes intrigues me… so I jumped at the chance to read Runaway Groom, a ...

Ready to Run

I’m an unabashed Lauren Layne fan, and this book only adds to that love. A hybrid of The Bachelor franchise and the fabulous Julia Roberts movie Runaway Bride, Ready to Run tells the story of ambitious producer Jordan Carpenter and reluctant contestant Luke Elliot. Of course, Luke’s runaway groo ...

I Knew You Were Trouble

Here’s the deal: I love - as in really, really love - Lauren Layne’s Stiletto and Oxford series, and I am ecstatic whenever there is a new book out. I know it means that I’ll be able to catch up with some of my favorite fictional characters, who now feel like old friends, and that I will get t ...

Walk of Shame

If you loved the Amy Adams/Patrick Dempsey movie Enchanted, then you are going to love this book. Essentially, it’s Enchanted fan fiction and I don’t mean that as a bad thing. Stuffy divorce lawyer Andrew has zero time for ridiculousness, frivolity, fluff - whatever word you want to assign to hi ...
