Blurred Lines

Blurred Lines is my all-time bestseller which always makes me smile, because it's the story that almost didn't get told!

It was the first book in my writing career where I trusted my gut instead of industry trends and experts. I said I wanted to write a story about two early-twenty-something best friends who realize they're in love with each other. No sales gimmick, no "high concept" trend, just a good old-fashioned love story that gave me butterflies as I was writing it.

Blurred Lines is a raw, no-holds-barred portrayal of two best friends making the choice to become lovers, and it’s the best I’ve ever read!”

a little taste

I’ve never been kissed like this. Never been pinned against the wall, my hands held out of commission by strong fingers and even stronger arms. Never had my mouth devoured like it was the best kind of dessert as a firm male body reminded me exactly how female I am.

excerpt from the book

This book is published by a digital-only imprint of Penguin Random House, and is not available in paperback in the United States.

For international versions/translations, please check your local retailer, as the Lauren Layne team is not always notified when books are translated/released in a particular country.

Thanks for your understanding—we wish all the books were available in every format, in every language, but much of that is out of our control and determined by reader demand and publisher strategy.
