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.

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.”
There are many reasons by Lauren Layne is a Go To author for me. I simply love her writing and the way she packs a punch in every love story. She excels at the Enemies to Lovers and Friends to Lovers story line delivery, and with Hunter and Brit, she gives us that slow-burn besties story that soothed this readers soul.
Everyone at Oxford Magazine knows that Hunter and Brit are not only boss and subordinate, but also the best of friends. When Brit decides she needs some help in the art of seduction she knows she trust no one other then Hunter to help her out. While the premise isn’t entirely unique, Layne always adds her signature “pow” moment. This comes where someone who is in denial, or just being an idiot, spouts words that should have been kept in their inside voice. People are scared and not always considerate, and they decide they know best. Clearly being in love with your best friend means that you are risking so very much.
Hunter and Brits path from friends to more is a fun, sweet and heart-string tugging experience. While Brit isn’t necessarily lacking confidence, it’s clear she doesn’t see her potential and is left wondering why she doesn’t feel like she’s able to keep a boyfriend. When Hunter is made aware as to why that could be the case, well he’s forced to see the truth in their relationship and just what he needs to do to secure both his and Brits happiness.
I Think I love You is a wonderful conclusion to the Oxford series. As always, I can’t wait to see what Lauren Layne has next up her writing sleeve!
