USA TODAY BESTSELLER • A game of seduction between two best friends goes deliciously wrong in an irresistible Oxford Novel that brims with wit and sexual tension. Library Journal hails Layne’s work as “exemplary contemporary romance.”
Brit Robbins knows that dating in New York City is hard—she just hoped to have it mastered by age thirty. But after yet another promising suitor says they have no sparks, Brit decides it’s time to torch her dating game and try a new plan. And who better to coach Brit through the art of seduction than the guy who first gave her the “let’s be friends” card?
Hunter Cross has always figured there’s nothing his best friend Brit can do to surprise him. But Brit’s request is a surprise he doesn’t see coming—and one he’s definitely not prepared for. Hunter and Brit have always been careful to keep things perfectly platonic, but the fake dates and faux flirting are starting to feel like the real deal. And soon Hunter realizes he has taught Brit too well. Not only has she become an expert at seduction, the man becoming thoroughly seduced is him.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A When Harry Met Sally for the 21st century, I Think I Love You offers a fresh, witty take on the eternal question of whether platonic best friends can—or should—become lovers. When Brit Robbins is let down for the umpteenth time, she asks her pal Hunter Cross to help her up her dating game. But while play-acting at seduction, the longtime friends discover they may have genuine feelings for each other. The fifth and final installment in Lauren Layne's funny romance series set at a fictional men's magazine makes for an ideal lazy-afternoon read.
In Layne's middling fifth Oxford contemporary (after I Knew You Were Trouble), a woman who has almost everything turns to her boss for an education in love. Brit Robbins, an executive at the men's magazine Oxford, is ready for love, but love doesn't seem to be ready for her. After being dumped for the fourth time in as many months for want of romantic "spark," Brit wants a crash course in seduction to nab Mr. Right, and she knows just whom to ask. Hunter Cross is Brit's best friend, her boss, and the most successful playboy she knows in other words, the perfect person to teach Brit what men want. Her plan goes awry when their increasingly intimate lessons awaken feelings that neither is ready to face. Layne's reliance on overused tropes, sometimes trite dialogue, and easily surmounted plot obstacles prevent this simple romance from reaching its full potential, but contemporary romance fans looking for a quick, straightforward story will find it acceptable.
Awesome Friends to Lovers story
I haven't read the other books in this series - I don't think - so there were some things I missed out on but not much. It definitely makes me want to go back and read books 1-4!
I love a good friends to lovers romance! It's almost inevitable when one is needing help or advice - or lessons in this case - that one falls for the other or they both fall mutually. Plus I loved the way all their friends - and coworkers - seem to get involved because they are one big happy friend family. Even though they work together.
Definitely need to go read the other books in the series! This can be a standalone but I think it's more helpful to have read the other books in the series first.
Not worth the read
This book was just depressing. The title I Think I Love You says it all. There was no spark and the characters just fell into this blah friends with benefits relationship. The dance these two characters make between friendship and romance was lame. The love scenes felt trite and fell flat. Not worth the read.
Love this author and always recommend her. But sad to say this book was so boring and predictable that I couldn’t even finish it.
