{eARC 5 Star Review} Irresistibly Yours (Oxford #1) by Lauren Layne

Irresistibly Yours (Oxford, #1)

Irresistibly Yours (Oxford #1) by

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.

{Rating} 5/5 - I loved it!
They promise not to fall in love but some promises are made to be broken. I loved Cole and Penelope. I loved their friendship, their bantering, and the way they are together, fun and cute and hot.
Penelope is sweet. She's the girl next door, the girl you'd want to be BFFs with. She's smart, dedicated and feisty. She's also still dealing with a professional and personal betrayal, in a new city without friends, and has issues with confidence and self-worth. I liked how open and positive she is. Cole hides behind a mask of charm but he has an amazing heart; he's loyal, protective and devoted to his brother.

The chemistry between Cole and Penelope was evident in every interaction, you could feel the strikes they sparked off of each other from their first meeting, to competing for the same job and only intensifies as they get closer.
I loved watching Penelope and Cole fall in love and am now eagerly awaiting the next installment in the Oxford series.
