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.
Irresistibly Yours (Oxford #1)
By: Lauren Layne
Released October 6, 2015 (Loveswept)
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.

Just Read It! You will absolutely love it.
Irresistibly Yours has humor, real life angst with characters that make it impossible to put away and not fall in love with them.
Sexy Cole Sharpe and Tomboy Penelope Pope are new friends who are trying desperately NOT to fall in love with each other. Penelope lives a life totally clueless about her effect on men. She believes her persona as a tomboy who loves sports automatically places her in the friend zone.
She identifies herself as the “girl men love to hang out with”. She uses this coping mechanism to prevent herself from reading too much into guys’ interest in her. The author gives Penelope such real emotions it’s hard not to identify with her.
As colleagues, they work fabulously together. As friends with benefits they are hot and steaming up the sheets. A must-read for lovers of steamy, sexy and erotic romps in the bed.
It’s wonderful how Cole insist on showing Penelope she can be the hot, sexy Belle of the Ball and eat a hotdog at the ballpark. He is determining to demonstrate she is very much the woman any man would love to have at his side drinking beer and eating pizza as well as HOTT for her body in his bed!!!
You are going to fall in love with these two. It’s very satisfying to read about a boy who simply likes a girl and all her insecurities. And funny? The witty banter Cole and Pen exchange makes each of them the perfect half for the other. He knows her quirks, her likes and her expectations.
