It’s said you never forget your first.

She was my childhood best friend. We were inseparable. We kept each other's secrets and grew up knowing we would always be there for one another.

In the most devastating moment of our lives, we shared our grief--and found comfort in each other's arms. Somehow, the worst day became the best night.

And then she left.

Toying with Her. With me? Yes, please!!

This was my second Lane read. It was very different from the first book I read by her. And I loved it. Rorke stole my heart. And my panties. He wasn't perfect but he was mine. So dear Sterling, you can keep your toys, I'm keeping Rorke.

Snarky judgments have made Sterling a loner. Her sin? To develop a sex toy. Tired of feeling alone, Sterling goes back home to her Southern roots. To the family that still loves her-sex toy maker and all. To LO

I enjoyed Toying With Her thanks to Rorke. Damn, he was dreamy and one hell of a man. Head over heels in love with Sterling and did everything to make her know that and made her feel comfortable with who she was. The real Sterling and not the woman who created the bestselling vibrator.

I really hoped for more background story since they'd known each other since the were kids. I felt the focus was on Sterling's occupation and the attention especially the negativity that followed it. She was guarde

This is the first story I've read by Prescott Lane and it will not be the last! I ADORED this sexy, sweet and fun second chance romance! I loved Rorke and Sterling so much! The chemistry between these two was off the charts hot! I needed to find out what was going to happen with these two! I wanted them together forever so bad I could taste it! Toying with Her is the perfect steamy, heart fluttering romance that had me hooked from the start! ...more
This is only the second book I've read by Prescott Lane and I gotta say, she keeps surprising me at every turn. I absolutely ADORED Sterling and Rorke's story! These two characters are SO FEISTY and I LOVED it! TOYING WITH HER is a second-chance, friends-to-lovers type romance that pushed all the buttons for me - heavy attraction, insane chemistry, and amazing banter. I couldn't put it down! Ms. Lane mixes the heavy and the light-hearted perfectly, rounding it out to make a damn good romance.

Toying with Her was much more than I expected it to be, I definitely wasn't prepared to laugh so much or fall hard for all the characters. It's a sweet Southern romance wrapped up in a sexy bow. Sterling is a beautiful, stubborn woman who isn't quite as city girl as she leads everyone to believe. I really enjoyed that she was a sweet girl through and through, just protecting herself from the backlash of judgement. She's faced with judgement and ridic

Toying with Her by Prescott Lane
4 stars!!!

“I think I was made to love you.”

Prescott Lane delivers a hilarious and extremely cute read with Toying with Her. This book contained one of the most hilarious lines I have ever read, I had tears rolling down my face and got a stitch. I loved the Southern sayings, I loved Momma with a passion and I fell in love with our hero and heroine. The South’s small towns are well known for being stuck in the dark ages, where the bible is the be all and

'Toying with Her' was a second chance romance that was sweet, had me laughing and oh so heartwarming.

Sterling is a sassy, takes no crap badass. She owns her own company, and the inventor of the very well-selling sex toy. She's made quite a name herself. But it doesn't matter how rich she is, because no amount of money can make her happy. She needs to be surrounded by love, so she decides to go back home to Alabama and spend her summ

Nestled along the shores of Mobile Bay, the pace here tends to be a little slower, the tea a little sweeter, and the sun a little hotter.

So no friends, no boyfriend, and no dates in almost three years, because men were either turned off by my profession or turned on for all the wrong reasons. I was feeling pretty desperate. And mansperate, too.

It's interesting story, which is at times very funny, while also very sad. It points out some of the problems in our society, people's inability to accept what is different, to cherish change, and their cruelty towards those they deem 'immoral'. Also it's a romance novel so there is that too. I loved both Sterling and Rorke, and I think their story is a perfect one.

Sterling is the successful inventor of an extremely popular sex toy. From the outside looking in it seems like Sterlings got a good happy life but with her feeling more alone than ever, she decides to go back home to Alabama for the summer. I loved Sterling. She's come so far in her life but she hasn't had it easy. Coming from a small town where everyone knows your business and that frowns upon inventing sex toys, Sterling knows going back she's going to have to put up with the talk, but she's n ...more

Toying with Her by Prescott Lane tells the story of second chance love between Sterling and Rorke. After losing their virginity together in a barn during their lust filled teenage years, they both go their separate ways, missing the opportunity to declare their feelings to each other. Fast forward a couple of years and Sterling returns back home to a small conservative town that doesn't want anything to do with her and her

Toying with Her by Author Prescott Lane is a friends-to-lovers and second chance at love story.

"She is the one that got away. We never got our chance. Now she’s back, and she thinks we can be friends? I spent my entire childhood and teenage years being 'friends' with her. She wants to be friends? That’s fine. I’ll be her friend. But I’ll be damned if that’s all I am."

Prescott Lane is a fantastic author and one of my go to authors when I want to engross myself in a chemistry laden romance book. And that is what I have here in this second-chance, friends-to-lovers romance story. And again, Ms. Lane has hit this out of the park with another hit story with a story that has it all- Southern Gal, sex, angst, 2nd chance love, spicy, family angst, and an amazing banter between the main characters and also involving secondary characters.

"That's the thing about women. When they push you away, it means you need to love them harder"

Sound advice from Rorke's dad.

I loved this book, not only did it have a character that created a sex toy and made millions (go Sterling) it had southern charm and Witt, I loved the plot and I loved the characters harder.

Sterling and Rorke had been friends forever, their parents are best friends, they all lived in a farming town were everyone knew everyone's business, before you reached your destinatio

I LOVED this friend-zoned second chance romance, Toying With Her, by Prescott Lane! I found myself smiling, laughing out loud, and tearing up throughout this story. It definitely has a Sweet Home Alabama feel with Sterling leaving her NYC life and returning to her hometown in South Alabama for a summer.

"So I'm heading back home to my family that still loves me---sex toy maker and all."

One of my favorite parts of the story is that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how Prescott Lane created Sterling's chara

When you read the title and the blurb you think this book is going to be one of those laugh your ass off books where you will have tears running down your face so much and that you could possibly even pee your pants from laughing so hard!

This book is hilarious and swoon-worthy! Sterling is in a tough position. She's the creator and CEO of Paramour - a female sex toy company. Which being a woman in charge has got to be challenging but then being one in charge of a sex toy company with the toy she created has to be 1000% harder.

Sterling heads home to Alabama for the summer, where she learns her livelihood causes problems even for her Deacon dad and mom. While they don't care, Sterling is acutely aware of how her profession gives

I loved Toying with Her, a second-chance, friends to lovers romance peppered with humor and emotion that shows us more than one side of life in a small town.

"But I want to know what it’s like to be with someone who loves you as much as you love them. I’ve only felt it one time—that night with Rorke. And God help me, I want to feel that again. And for more than one night. And that scares the piss out of me."

I adored everything about this book from the main characters Rorke & Sterling to her parents. This story was not only sexy but funny too. I love humor in my book and this had it abundance.

Sterling needs a serious break and decides to come home and spend some much needed time with her parents what she didn't count on was how her hometown would now react to her given that she's now a millionaire due to the fact that she designs very in demand sex toys.

I really enjoyed this cute little second chance romance. The story is more than a woman who became a millionaire from creating a vibrator. The whole story was too cute and Rorke was so sweet and swoonworthy.

This second chance, friends to lovers story was absolutely unputdownable! The characters Sterling and Rorke were so well developed, so likable, I wanted to meet them.
Their chemistry was off the charts sexy, charming, and romantic. Their banter was fresh, smart and funny.
What made this story truly stand on its own is the poignant story of acceptance. Can't say more without giving up spoilers and this is one of those reads that's better enjoyed going in blindly!

I love second chance romance, even though Sterling and Rorke were only together for one night you would never think they were ever apart. They seem to fit so perfectly together. I hated that she was judged so harshly for inventing a sex toy I myself thought it was a good profession. I hated the small minded town people who thought Sterling had no morals and compared her to a whore I found those moments very hard to read because I didn't think she deserved that kind of treatment at all luckily Ro
