This book was so bittersweet. I knew it was going to be the end and I was both happy and sad. I really like all these characters -and even when a particular book wasn’t that great… oh, the characters. I made it my mission to read all Lauren Layne’s books and I’m getting there!

At first this story didn’t call to me. I wasn’t really that much into it for about the first 28% of it, I’m not gonna lie but as time passed, I found myself enjoying it more and more and by the end, I was a goner.

”I THINK I LOVE YOU” is the fifth and final installment of the Oxford series. The conclusion to the series ends with one of my all-time favorite tropes -- ”friends to lovers”. While I found the story to be a sexy and enjoyable read, at times it was a little frustrating as well. I couldn’t wrap my head around how two educated people who were the best of friends could be completely clueless about their own feelings.

After yet another break up, she's beginning to wonder what's wrong with her. The men of New York didn't seem to take her seriously as girlfriend material. She was attractive, loyal, friendly, and made people feel comfortable. Sh

Favorite Quotes:

That man was the physical form of halitosis.

“If I use some of your face stuff, will I grow ovaries?” “Nah,” she said, not lifting her eyes. “Just leave your man card on the table, and we’ll be even.”

“It’s gardenia,” she said, as she turned him around and began washing his back. “And it’s nice. I bet Lincoln would like it.” … “Because he’s like an old woman trapped in Clark Kent’s body,” Hunter grumbled.

Sometimes it is hard to let go... to say goodbye to an experience that you loved. I suspect it would also be difficult for authors to close out long-running series, series which have brought all their readers together with characters they have grown to love. I Think I Love You has become the last book of the Oxford series by Lauren Layne and we get to have a final look at all the characters from this series and also the Original

Welp. If only I could swap my enjoyment of the fourth Oxford with this one because as far as series enders go.. this left a lot to be desired.

In I THINK I LOVE YOU we have a bestfriends who become more situation. Bestfriends who are oblivious to what's in front of them. Bestfriends who have friends betting on when they will each wake up to the inevitable. Bestfriends who each have their own struggles or disconnects with their love lives. In Brit's case she can never find someone to stick around,

I Think I Love You is the finale to the Stiletto/Oxford series by Lauren Layne, which also just happens to be my favorite contemporary romance series to date.  It is bittersweet to say farewell to all the characters I’ve come to know and adore. It is also the friends to lovers trope I usually crave in a romance as well.

Brit and Hunter have been BFFs for years.  He really isn’t looking to settle down but does love to date.  Brit,

A sweet friends to lovers story. In the final book of the Oxford series, Hunter and his best friend, Brit, are left to find love. Of course they are best friends who don’t feel anything for each other, or do they? The ease of their friendship, the knowing of each other’s nuisances and the sweet devotion they feel for one another is perfect and everyone can see they are each other’s soul mate but them.

Witty, charming, and delightfully romantic!

I Think I Love You is a passionate, friends-to-more RomCom about the determined and focused Brit who doesn’t want to be just one of the guys anymore and decides to undertake lessons in the art of seduction, and the sexy, considerate Hunter, who suddenly finds it harder and harder to keep his attraction for his best friend in check.

The writing is crisp and light. The characters, including all the supporting characters, are charismatic, fun-loving, and lo
With book five of her “Oxford” series, Lauren Layne brings the summer heat and closes out her series with a truly enjoyable read. She allures with an enticing romantic comedy that wittily describes the tricky yet exciting prospect of dating one’s best friend.

Brit Robbins and Hunter Cross have been best friends since they met and when one too many men friend-zone her, Brit enlists Hunter to teach her the art of seduction. Hunter isn’t sure mock dating is a good idea, but is also unwilling to let

Such a lovely story, I enjoy it a lot!It has one of my favorite tropes friends to lovers and also it's an office romance.Should I say anything else? It started really well and the characters were lovable and we'll developed!

Hunter and Brit are best friends,they know everything about each other.Brit needs help with her appeal to men and who is better to help her than Hunter? Soon they will understand that they have feeling for each other and things will get interesting.

I Think I Love You was a wonderful end to the Stiletto/Oxford Series. We got to catch up with every couple from the previous books, and I loved seeing all of the people I had fallen in love with. And while his book could easily be read as a standalone, I definitely recommend going back to the very beginning with Julie and Mitchell in After the Kiss from the Stiletto Series. Trust me, it's so worth it! This final book was about Hunter and Brit and their story was sexy, charismatic, funny and char ...more

This was a fun little book! My actual rating is closer to 3.5 stars but I have decided to round up. I knew I would want to read this book as soon as I saw it. I have had a great time with the Oxford series so far so I had to see how everything would wrap up. This book is the fourth book in the Oxford series but it works perfectly well as a stand alone. This wasn't my favorite book in the series but I thought that it was a very enjoya

Cute but a little predictable. I had the same issues with this book and the last book, and that is, I've read this before. And I'm not talking about the bestfriend-to-lovers trope, which happens to be a favorite of mine, but rather the characters and their motivations.

Layne gracefully brings the Oxford and Stiletto series to a close with this last entry.

This series is sheer wish fulfillment, gorgeous people at two super successful magazines living high style in New York. Interestingly enough, Layne chooses to bring together a couple who have been best friends for six years.

Brit and Hunter seem perfectly content with their platonic friendship. Brit is friends with everybody . . . and that's the problem. She comes to Hunter bummed after being dumped by yet anot

This book starts off with the heroine, Brit lamenting the lack of good men to date. Brit's friends at Oxford magazine have all found the ONE- except for her. Brit's best friend is Hunter.
Hunter is also her boss at Oxford. She confides in Hunter about her dating dilemma. He reluctantly agrees to give her lessons on dating and how to get a repeat date. She's so nurturing and kind, she constantly puts herself in the friend-zone.
The men that she dates don't feel the spark with her.

Friends to lovers is my absolute favorite trope! I especially love when one of the characters is trying to teach the other how to be successful in the dating world... this is the fifth and final installment in the series, but it can definitely be read as a standalone.... although there are many cameo appearances from previous characters in both the Oxford and Stiletto series...

This is sad it's the end of the Stiletto and Oxford gang. Brit wants help with figuring out why men don't want to stick around after the third date, so she asks her BFF Hunter to help. Of course, in the relationship coaching they fall into bed and eventually in love with lots of help from the gang. Nice end to the series.

I Think I Love You is the final book in the Oxford series, but it reads as a stand alone. I haven't read any of the previous books and didn't have any issue enjoying this one!

Hunter and Brit are best friends. They have been best friends for years. Brit turns to her BFF to get some dating advice. You can guess how this will end up, right. Overall, the story is predictable. Of course they realize they have feelings for each other. Of course Hunter freaks out about it-she's his friend, he is
‘I Think I Love You’ feels like the true end to Lauren Layne’s Oxford series, a not quite full-length tale of the last standing couple, who don’t even know they’re meant to be paired with…yet. Layne tackles the friends-to-lovers trope here and straightaway, I knew it would be a tricky one with questions that needed to be answered—questions that this trope always seems to invite for the pairing to be a believable and satisfying one.

Brit and Hunter slide in somewhere later in the Oxford series as

What a mix of bittersweet feelings I have right now! I still can't believe this is the last book of the Oxford series. Irresistibly Yours, the first installment, was my first EVER read by Lauren Layne and after that, I haven't stop reading (and loving) her books. I fell in love with the Stiletto and the Oxford crew and it's so sad to say goodbye to all these wonderful characters that have stolen my heart over the years (thank God I can re-read the books whenever I want lol).

Sissy's Romance Book Review
I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne is book 5 in the Oxford series. This is the story of Brit Robbins and Hunter Cross. I haven't yet read the previous books, so for me this is a standalone book.
This was a great Friends to Lovers romance. Brit asked her friend Hunter to help in coaching her for a better dating and seduction. But this turns into more than what they both plan.
Really enjoyed this book!

I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review.

To be honest, the synopsis for I Think I Love You almost scared me off. Anything where the plot sounds like it’s centered around a physical relationship is not generally my thing. However, I’ve learned that when it comes to a Lauren Layne book, it’s always best to give her the benefit of the doubt and I’m once again glad I did. While there were a few of the too-graphic scenes I don’t really appreciate, there weren’t more

This was an adorably sweet friends to lovers office romance with a good dash of angst and now all I can think is that I really need to go binge on all the Lauren Layne things!!!! This was precisely what I needed to pull me out of my book funk. I've started and stopped reading a good handful of books recently and this is the first one that I picked up that wouldn't let me go.

I don’t know if it has just been a while since I read anything in this series but I do not remember Brit or Hunter. I really liked both of them in this book, other than they seemed a bit out of touch with their own feelings but it seems like I should have remembered them. This is the fifth and final installment of the Oxford series and I am so sad to see this series end.

Ughhhhh guys I was pretty disappointed with this one. Mind you, it could be I feel that way because the romance I read before this was AMAZING but this one just seemed to fall a little flat for me. Honestly, it seems like all of Layne's books either fall into the LOVE or Mehh category for me--there really isn't any in-between.

This book was a friends to lovers trope, which is one of my absolute favorites I might add, and was of the variety where the girl thinks she isn't sexy/doesn't know how to

The final novel in the Oxford/ Stiletto crossover series – what is the plural of series?

Brit Robbins and Hunter Cross have worked together for years and are platonic best friends. But when yet another guy dumps Brit giving her the ‘you’re a nice woman but there just aren’t the sparks’ line she’s had enough and wants to know why guys always see her as “good ol’ Brit”. After a few glasses of wine with her friends Brit decides that she must be giving off a friend vibe rather than a girlfriend vibe
