Review: I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne (Oxford #5)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept.

Lauren Layne wraps up her very popular Oxford series--spun off of her other reader favorite series, Stiletto--with the friends-to-lovers story of best friends Hunter Cross and Brit Robbins. Both work at the prestigious men's magazine, with Hunter as the head of Oxford's operations team and Brit his senior product manager. They've known each other for six years, becoming the closest of friends while working incredibly well together. No one knows Hunter as well as Brit does and vice-versa. After yet another failed "relationship", Brit decides to listen to her girlfriends and undergo some much needed coaching. Maybe if she could figure out why she isn't deemed worthy enough to be "forever" material, she'll be able to right whatever wrongs she has. The only guy she wants "coaching" her when it comes to seduction and flirtation is Hunter. She trusts him to tell it like it is while making sure that she's okay and making the best possible choices. They've always been comfortable with one another, but now there's a different kind of sensation that sizzle between them. From friends to lovers but will they get forever?

I Think I Love You was a sweet story that highlighted the importance of friendship and how it can transition into family and love, the former among those who were part of Stiletto and Oxford and the latter between Hunter and Brit. There was no denying the closeness between the two main characters, nor the comfort level that these two had already reached in their friendship. While a lot of the friends-to-lovers books I've read tend to have at least one or both in the couple have had more than platonic feelings for sometime, I liked that Hunter and Brit were seriously just friends before the whole seduction coaching thing started. The chemistry between them was more sedate compared to the other couples in the series, but once these two became more aware of each other in a more lustful manner, well, all bets were off. I appreciated their romance, and I loved seeing the previous main characters all get together here, giving this series that I've gushed and squeeed over the send-off it deserves. I'm giving I Think I Love You five out of five stars, and will be making time to FINALLY read the Stiletto series very soon. ♥
