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.


Ok when Cole Sharpe was first introduced in the stiletto series, i didnt like him. but now that i get to read a book full of a charming and irresistible baseball maniac that is Cole Sharpe, I'm totally sold. like 'here, u can have my heart body and mind im willing to give them all' kinda sold. i cant even remember why i didn't like him back then.

Irresistibly Yours is some sort of a spin off series from the Stiletto series. where in sex,love & stiletto we have those stilettos girls, here we have these Oxford guys with all its glory. and i mean glory in every meaning it can carries :p

so this is a typical Lauren Layne's book. You can pretty much guess the plot and everything but its still as good as ever, This book brings a fresh difference though, compared to Lauren other books. Where in stilettos we have Julie, Grace, Riley and Emma who are a bunch of very modern, classy, fierce and confident ladies with bombshell body figures, here in Irresistibly Yours, we have Penelope Pope who is very very very plain appearance and characteristics-wise. Shes not that fierce, pretty vulnerable, full of insecurities (but not to the point of annoyingness), shes short and basically a tomboy!!!!! I find it amazing that i can relate so much with her on the insecurities part and it's refreshing, coming from Lauren Layne.

This book has a lot of heart melting and panty dropping moments but theyre not as strong as Lauren's Stiletto series. Penelope and Cole doesnt have that deep of an intimacy like all the other pairs in Stiletto series has. They're comfortable with each other but the sexual tension isnt that strong with this one. (Although there are 2/3 hot scenes that got me gushing lol) 


The next book is gonna be on the devastatingly good looking Lincoln.... which im not feeling him that much yet. Maybe i'll love him soon too like how i did with Cole.

"The thing is, Mathis," Cole said slowly. "Everyone acts like the moment you realize you're in love is the big gotcha moment. But there's actually a moment after that... the one where you realize you could lose the person you love." - Cole Sharpe, Irrestistibly Yours
