R E V I E W ➠ You're The One by Layla Hagen



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Hot. Flirty. Romantic.
It all started as pretend…
My best friend, and one of the most powerful men in New York, needed my help.
Our first kiss was unexpected—but it still made my skin sizzle, my knees go weak.
The next one was in front of his tight-knit family. We had to be convincing. But it was so wicked hot, it almost convinced me too.
On our first night together, he told me that I had to keep us both in check, because he didn’t know how to keep the lines from blurring…
He touched me like I was precious, and held me close… barely stopping his fingers from pushing down the straps of my dress…
On our second night, our banter turned to flirting. Hunter—my best friend was now Hunter—the man. Intense. Alluring. Sexy as hell.
How was I supposed to not fall in love?

“Know me so well, do you? What do you think I want?” “I think you want me to push and push until you have no choice but to give in.”

Not my first read by the author and this is stand-alone. I’ve read enough books by this author that I knew I’d enjoy it. This is a friends-to-lovers and an interesting one at that.

Hunter is a wealthy and successful man, a man that started from the bottom, a man that well hasn’t been paying attention to his work-visa. He has lived in the states since he was a baby but push forward many years and well, should have paid more attention because now he is in a pickle.
Josie is a successful lawyer who has always worked hard in her life. She is a woman that knows what she wants and speaks her mind, she is also the best friend of Hunter. These two, I have to say even at the beginning after the “arrangement” was accepted, lines were starting to blur, but neither one of them know of each other’s feelings. So naturally they both ignore it and move on as this was just another time together. It’s really sweet to watch them titter-totter around one another. Sadly one doesn’t believe in actual marriage while the other hopes to have it all, husband, house and 2.5 kids.

The only thing that bothered me was the climax. I wont lie but through out the whole build up, i had no indication something was coming until when it did, it just didn’t seem right for the action. i don’t want to give it away but it kind of brought me back a step, and i wasn’t a huge fan of the ending, that’s all I can say truthfully. Threw me off just a little.
