Lauren Layne is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen romantic comedies.
A former e-commerce and web marketing manager from Seattle, Lauren relocated to New York City in 2011 to pursue a full-time writing career.
She lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart, where she writes smart romantic comedies with just enough sexy-times to make your mother blush. In LL’s ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books.
Lauren Layne delivered a well written and fulfilling romance, high on sexual tension.
Love Story is the third book in the Love Unexpectedly series, and it can be read as a standalone. The “older brother’s best friend” is one of my favorite tropes!
This novel was told in the heroine’s and the hero’s POV and in flashbacks. Flashbacks in a book can be very tricky, they usually work better on-screen, and they worked well here since they were short and in small doses through the story.
The plot was really good , but I had a hard time trying to relate to Reeve He was very cruel to Lucy and kept withholding information and deceiving her, because of his own insecurities. I felt bad for her.
Overall Love Story was a very entertaining read. I plan on reading other books by the author!
I voluntarily reviewed an eARC.
