Love the One You're With (Sex, Love & Stiletto #2) by Lauren Layne

Love the One You're With (Sex, Love & Stiletto, #2)
Love the One You're With, the second book in the Love, Sex & Stilettos series, was a funny, entertaining and engaging tale about two magazine writers and their "He said, She said" approach to dating. I loved the interactions between Grace and Jake, their dialogue was witty, flirty, filled with double meanings and often downright sexy. It reminds me of those old Hollywood screen couples with all that sexual chemistry often manifesting themselves in their bantering and downplayed lusty looks. The plot and pacing simply flowed, the writing smooth. This is a story that reads like a movie, easy to visualize but the characters still had depth and were fully fleshed out. It was sweet, romantic and yes the couples antics trying to top one another was simply hilarious. Fans of romantic comedies would definitely love this one.

Synopsis:


As a leading columnist for Stiletto, Grace Brighton has built a career warning women about rotten, cheating liars. She just never suspected her fiancĂ© would be one of them. After Grace takes a heart-mending hiatus, her first assignment is to go on a couple of dates with a counterpart from the men's magazine Oxford and report her impressions. Grace 1.0 may have been instantly smitten with the gorgeous correspondent, but Grace 2.0 has sworn off relationships for six months, and she's not falling for his outstanding bod and trophy-winning kisses... or is she?


Jake Malone wants to get back to the fly-by-night, who-knows-what's-next guy he used to be, and he knows exactly how to do it. Oxford is adding a travel section, and Jake—with no wife and no kids and a willingness to live anywhere, eat anything, do everything—is perfect for the job... except that his playboy reputation makes his new editor nervous. To get the gig, he must agree to a fluffy joint article with Stiletto.



But after just one date with snooty, sumptuous, sensational Grace Brighton, Jake starts taking this assignment a whole lot more seriously...

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making. Pretty soon you will be amazed on the intricate storyline balanced well with the main characters developing romance.  Fool Me Once is definitely a Catherine Bybee book.  The first in her new series, First Wives,  Fool Me Once is also a spinoff from her popular Weekday Bride series.  And yet again, Ms. Bybee delivers in her great characters, well thought out plot and melding her two series together without one overpowering the other.
