Basic story: Cole Sharpe is a high-flying sports editor who, after years freelancing, is finally ready to become a staff member at Oxford magazine. He has his reasons for needing the job and has been assured he’s a shoe-in. It soon becomes clear however, that he isn’t the only contender, and his competition is the perky, diminutive and tomboyish woman he was eyeing up at a recent ball game. Cole finds her fascinating. And she’s not his usual type. At all.
Penelope Pope (isn’t alliteration great?) eats, sleeps and breathes sports. She moved to New York from Chicago for a fresh start and is desperate to land the job at Oxford. She’s not bothered about being one of the few females on staff, she’s used to a predominantly male environment. She’s always been one of the guys and is comfortable remaining in the friend zone. When she gets to know Cole, she sees no reason why this would be different. The Cole Sharpes of the world do not go for awkward, skinny women, not when there are glamazons at every turn. He’s easy on the eye and could just be her first friend in the Big Apple. So what if his sexy smiles warm her on the inside and his presence gives her goose bumps. He’s way out of her league.
Soon the pair are spending almost every moment together and the idea of friends with benefits may not be so far-fetched after all…
Why you should read it: I love Lauren Layne! If you have read the Stiletto series (which focuses on the women who work at Stiletto magazine, Oxford magazine’s sister publication) then you will definitely want to read this. Cole was a peripheral character in the series, so it’s great to see his character in greater depth. I liked Penelope, low self-esteem notwithstanding.Read more ›
This is a wonderfully fun and highly entertaining book - and heralds great things for the new series.
The writing is good, and the ease into the world of publishing is smooth and understated. Great start and it never falters. I read it straight through the night (which I may be regretting later today!) because I was invested in the outcome, and the journey to get there from the very beginning. By having most of the men in happy relationships, it was so easy to make the office atmosphere full of banter and wit, rather than excessive angst- which was both refreshing and great fun. I enjoyed the sports side too, which was interesting from the journalism viewpoint. As the story progresses and things heat up, it is impossible not to be swept along, and by hearing their thoughts, it adds both to the amusement and the frustration at them both.
If you want an entertaining, fun, sexy and very satisfying read - this will definitely bring a smile to your face. Thank you Ms Layne for a winner!

One-Sentence Summary: A sexy freelancer and a tomboy go head-to-head for an editorial position at a magazine
Review: Reading a Lauren Layne book is like eating a tube of Pringles: once you pop, you can’t stop! You gorge yourself on the feast for heart and mind and then when it’s all over you end up in withdrawal because you have to wait another 6+ months for the next book in the series.
Well, I have been looking forward to Cole’s story since the moment we first met him in the Sex, Love & Stiletto series and I am pleased to say it didn’t disappoint.
Cole smiled. “Penelope. Are you physically shaking it off right now?”
“Don’t judge, it helps,” she said.
He lifted his arms and mimicked her motions so they were both flapping like birds. “You’re right. It does.”
“What are you shaking off?” she asked.
Cole shrugged. “Nothing. I’m flawless.”
There was throat clearing from the doorway and she turned to see Lincoln Mathis watching them with raised eyebrows.
“Oh, hi, Lincoln!” She let her arms drop to her sides.
“Oh, hi, Lincoln!” Cole mimicked in a breathy voice.
She ignored him, mostly because he had a point. She probably had been a little breathless, but it was one hundred percent justified ………
…… Penelope felt a blast of misty water hit her cheek and turned around to see Cole holding a blue squirt bottle. “What are you doing? That’s for misting my plants!”
“You looked hot,” he said with a shrug, setting the bottle aside.
Penelope is a sport fanatic who is up against Cole for the position of senior sports editor at the highly successful Oxford magazine.Read more ›
