Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures he’s got the inside track. Then his boss drops a bombshell: Cole has competition. Female competition, in the form of a fresh-faced tomboy who can hang with the dudes—and write circles around them, too. Cole usually likes his women flirty and curvy, but he takes a special interest in his skinny, sassy rival, if only to keep an eye on her. And soon, he can’t take his eyes off her.
Penelope Pope knows all too well that she comes off as just one of the guys. Since she’s learned that wanting more usually leads to disappointment, Penelope’s resigned to sitting on the sidelines when it comes to love. So why does Cole make her want to get back in the game? The man is as arrogant as he is handsome. He probably sees her as nothing more than a barrier to his dream job. But when an unexpected kiss turns into a night of irresistible passion, Penelope has to figure out whether they’re just fooling around—or starting something real.
Hello, another amazing book by Lauren Layne! IRRESISTIBLY YOURS, I give you all the golden stars and green check marks in the world. I had a lot of fun reading this book and pretty much ended up binge-ing it all day. It had the hot factor in quantity *heart eyes* and the cuteness of these two characters never left the pages. Cole and Penelope made my heart go all mushy and dripping down love - I wanted MORE.
It had what I love most in the world: SPORTS. So if you like sports or your characters talking about sports, this is the book you're looking for. Cole and Penelope are competing for the same job in a magazine *oh yeah* and it's for a sports' editor. These two know so much about the topic, it made me happy inside to see them just talking about it and be at home with each other. And let's not start on Cole's nickname for Penelope, like PLEASE YOU'RE SO CUTE BYE COLE.
You see it as soon as they see each other that this is going to make you swoon hard and when you find out Cole's massive crush on Ms. Penelope, YOU JUST FALL IN LOVE COMPLETELY. You cannot not love this book - adorkable, sexy, good friendships, sports, and office romance??? Check, check, check! I'm 1000% excited for the next books in this series, they sound good and !!! More cute couples with steamy scenes on the side = yes please.
