Love is the Biggest Gamble of All . . .

Cocktail waitress Sophie Dalton doesn't exactly have a life plan. She's perfectly happy being everyone's favorite party girl. But when a Las Vegas bachelorette party goes awry and an uptight businessman mistakes Sophie for a prostitute . . . well, Sophie wonders if it's time to reevaluate her priorities. Swearing off her thigh-high boots for good, Sophie slinks back home with damaged pride-and a jackpot of a hangover.

Yet what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay there. On a trip to Seattle to open a new office, Grayson Wyatt meets his latest employee-who turns out to be the same woman he recently called a hooker. Wealthy and gorgeous, Gray is a man used to getting what he wants. And it doesn't take long to figure out that smart, sassy, sexy Sophie is everything he's been looking for. As their late nights at the office turn into hot morning-afters, they realize their Vegas misunderstanding may lead to the real thing . . .

Lauren Layne is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, right up there with Kristan Higgins, Rachel Gibson and Candis Terry. Her writing is fun, sassy and full of emotion, but has me laughing and smiling throughout each one of her romances I read.

ONLY WITH YOU was no different!  I have to say, I stinkin' LOVED Sophie.  Probably one of my favorite heroines of all time, and I am usually not a big 'heroine' fan, as I love my heroes, but Sophie was very much an Annabelle Granger (S.E.P. Catch Me If You Can) for me...Just awesome!  The family member who is "Off the Beaten Path"of what the family expects, kind of a goofball, but has a HUGE heart and liked by ALL, except for the hero, or so we think!

and Gray...oh Gray, who wears Gray...haha!!  For as much as I loved Sophie, I felt for Gray. And every time we find him alone on a weekend, my heart just went out to him.  It was the times when he let him guard down that I loved him the most.  Definitely a modern day Mr. Darcy!!

I swear by the last few pages I was simply holding my breath wondering how he was going to come back from "That"...but OMG....was that one of my FAVORITE ending in a romance that I have read.  I cried...I was so happy I cried!!  Thanks A LOT Lauren!!

Lauren Layne is a snarky cynic with a serious weakness for happily ever afters.

Marrying her high school sweetheart was a good start. *cue Disney soundtrack.*

But Lauren wanted all romance, all the time.

Now she writes fictional happy endings, and considers her job done well if you swoon while reading her books. Don't worry. You will.

Once upon a time she lived in a Manhattan high-rise, but now she's on the laid-back train in the Seattle area. If you ever find yourself in Issaquah, she'll probably buy you a drink. Maybe.
