After the Kiss: The Stiletto Series

After the Kiss: The Stiletto Series - Lauren Layne I decided to give this debut effort from Lauren Layne a go because the summary reminded me a bit of one of my favorite movies, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and I am happy to say, I enjoyed this book just as much as the movie! Julie Greene is part of a trio of women who write articles about love in the leading women's magazine and when her boss throws her a curveball...write about a relationship...what happens after the first kiss, Julie knows some drastic measures are going to have to be taken! Enter the nerdy looking Wall Street guy Mitchell Forbes. A man upon appearances is just what a steady kind of girl would want in solid relationship. Too bad Mitchell has just ended a long relationship and his friends think he can not just have a fling. Surely Julie, a known flingster, is the perfect choice? They are exactly what they think they want until the heart takes over and a vicious co-worked threatens everything they have found together.This was a quick, fun read and I am so ready for more from Lauren Layne! I loved watching this opposites-attract couple find each other and how they completed each other. Julie is not subtle, she is too bright, too intense...everything that Mitchell steers clear of but he soon learns to realize that a little disruption in your life can be refreshing. And the same philosophy works for Julie. Mitchell makes her explore things she tended to ignore (running on a Sunday morning?) and she loves how he accepts her for who she is, flaws and all. Mitchell can finally just be himself without being 'on' like he has in the past. The friendship between Julie and her two co-workers adds a nice sense of warmth and makes me very anxious for their stories! I really adored this fun, flirty, sexy, and emotional romance and recommend it to any romance fan looking to smile with happiness! 4 starseARC provided by Random House (LoveSwept) via netgalley
