About the Book

As Lauren Layne’s salacious Sex, Love & Stiletto series returns, a jaded columnist discovers a steamy way to get over an old flame: falling for him all over again.
As Stiletto magazine’s authority on all things breakup-and-heartache, Emma Sinclair writes from personal experience. Five years ago, Emma was Charlotte, North Carolina’s darling debutante and a blushing bride-to-be. Now she’s the ice queen of the Manhattan dating scene. Emma left her sultry Southern drawl behind, but not even her closest friends know that with it she left her heart. Now Emma’s latest article forces her to face her demons—namely, the devilishly sexy guy who ditched her at the altar. 
After giving up everything for a pro-soccer career, Alex Cassidy watches his dreams crumble as a knee injury sidelines him for good. Now he’s hanging up his cleats and giving journalism a shot. It’s just a coincidence that he happens to pick a job in the same field, and the same city, as his former fiancĂ©e . . . right? But when Emma moves in next door, it’s no accident. It’s research. And Alex can’t help wondering what might have been. Unlike the innocent girl he remembers, this Emma is chic, sophisticated, and assertive—and she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. The trouble is, Alex has never wanted her more.

A Lauren Layne Romance is the Christmas Hallmark Movie of Romance...Addicting, Heartbreaking and leaves you with a HUGE smile on your face! Her writing is flawless, her characters are sassy, sexy and fresh, and the Stiletto Series is seriously fun! THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE is definitely going to be a Top Tasty Read for 2015!!

So I have been waiting for Emma's and Cassidy (Alex's) story from book two of the Stiletto Series, when they first made an appearance as secondary characters...and so with much begging and pleading on the fan's parts, Lauren gave us THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE, and man can she take my heart and mangle it into chop meat, only to make it into a melt in your mouth bacon cheeseburger of romance! That's right people, I said this book is the Bacon Cheeseburger of Romance...and make that a Blue Cheese Bacon that is top notch!

The emotion was spot on, and at times devastating, the sexual tension/or pretend ignorance of the other was hysterical at times, but could take the pages from slow burn to sizzle, and the storyline was fresh and so real, you almost feel as if you are working alongside these fantastic characters!

As a whole, the Stiletto Series is one of my all-time favorites (#TeamMitchell), and as for THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE, well, you will have no trouble Falling In Love with this romance!

I for one am SOOOOO excited that the series is taking a spin in the Oxford direction and I am SOOOO hoping that Lauren is going to give Daisy (Emma's Twin) a story....Cole maybe or Lincoln??
