Uptight, prickly, perfectionist Brynn knows she’s not the easiest person to love, and nobody likes to remind her of it more than childhood nemesis Will, who’s not only back in town, but moved right next door with a score to settle.
Trope: Enemies-to-Lovers, Neighbors, unrequited love
“If you have yet to read Lauren Layne, you don't know what you're missing. Funny, witty, and sexy, this book is simply a feel-good fantastic read.”
Will Thatcher is exactly the type of sexy playboy good girls like Brynn have always avoided. And yet there was still something about him she just couldn't resist. When Will moved across the country three years ago, Brynn vowed it was time to put him behind her. She never thought Will might have other plans . . .
Back in town, Will intends to get what he's always wanted-gorgeous, unforgettable Brynn. For years, he tormented the untouchable ice princess in a desperate bid for her attention. Now he has a new plan, and he'll do anything to rewrite their stormy past. This time, he's out to show Brynn that the imperfect man might be the best mistake of her life . . .
Most of my books are set in NYC. This one is set in Issaquah, a suburb of Seattle where I lived for years and have fond memories of.
This book is written in third-person, with alternating POV. Some people only like first-person. You've been warned!
This is the second book I ever wrote! I love it, but my style has changed a ton in the 10+ years since I wrote this!
Brynn and Will bicker a lot and many readers find they're too mean to each other! I love me some banter with teeth, but it is childish at times. Proceed with caution.
🔥 This book is steamy with explicit sex scenes.
While this isn't a reader favorite in numbers, people that love this one really love it. I've gotten more emails about this book—and the bathroom scene...than any other of my books!
He let out a harsh laugh. “Do you even hear yourself? A guy is standing here trying to tell you something and all you want to do is be rational.”
Brynn licked her dry lips, all instincts on high alert. “Fine. What do you want to tell me?”
His eyes roamed over her hair, his chin resting against his chest briefly in defeat before he raised his head again. “Just forget it.”
Before she realized what she was doing, she reached out a pleading hand. “Wait, I want to know—”
You'll never forget your first.
This series will always be beloved to me. Writing Only With You was the moment I pursued my lifelong dream of becoming an author.
These books literally changed my life.
❗️I am proud of and love these books. Especially Made for You! But I wrote them more than a decade ago, so please be forewarned that my style has changed quite a bit!
