Release + Review - You're The One - Layla Hagen

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.

Johnaka's Review 
“Friends to lovers, 5 stars”

Hunter and Josie have been best friends since high school. Now they are well into adulthood and they have never crossed that line, hinted at crossing that line. But now that Hunter’s visa isn’t being renewed, he needs to find a way to stay in the states. His whole life and business is here. When Josie lists off a list of options on how to stay the one to stick out to him the most is marriage. Ever since that word left her mouth all he can think about is marrying her. The question is are his feelings real? Will he be able to convince her to do it?

I liked Josie and Hunter. To me it was obvious that they belonged together from page one. Just the dynamic between the two was spot on. All they were missing was the physical aspect. There really wasn’t any one thing that I didn’t like. I liked the couple, I liked the secondary characters. If you love a good friends to lovers romance look no further.

Jennifer's review 
Loooove it! You're the One was a great romantic novel. I loved the whole idea of the book. It was a great story with even better writing and undeniable chemistry.

The plot of this book was great. It's a fake relationship meets friends to lovers. I really liked the characters right from the start. It was a nice change up to most other books. I liked how the author explored the whole "you can't see what's right in front of you" theme.

Overall, I would read this book again. The author has a way of pulling me in and making me want more. I cannot see what she comes up with next.

Ratings:  Plot: 5/5 Characters: 5/5 Heat: 5/5 Writing Style: 5/5 Overall: 5/5
