Publisher's Summary

Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford magazine for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures that he's got the inside track. Then his boss drops a bombshell: Cole has competition. Female competition, in the form of a fresh-faced tomboy who can hang with the dudes and write circles around them, too.

Penelope Pope knows all too well that she comes off as just one of the guys. Since she's learned that wanting more usually leads to disappointment, Penelope is resigned to sitting on the sidelines when it comes to love. So why does Cole make her want to get back in the game? The man is as arrogant as he is handsome. He probably sees her as nothing more than a barrier to his dream job. But when an unexpected kiss turns into a night of irresistible passion, Penelope has to figure out whether they're just fooling around or starting something real.

Contains mature themes.

Just ok

I've never left a review before but this book wasn't that good to me. I am a traditional romance lover so I love all the sappy and cheesy moment but the story wasn't written well. It didn't really flow and I couldn't get into it. There was so much focus on other things outside of the actual relationship. It really didn't do it for me. The narration really didn't help the story. I liked that their was duel POV but it was read by one person. I hate when a female voice tries to play both a man and female. It sounds so weird and I think that's partly why I couldn't get into it. Not worth the credit for me.

Great writing, but did nothing for me.

Would you consider the audio edition of Irresistibly Yours to be better than the print version?

I thought that I'd love this story, but unfortunately, it fell a little flat for me. I didn't really connect to any of the characters as much as I would have liked and while Penelope was charming, she was way too insecure for me to truly connect with her as a woman. She was always putting herself down and it just made her seem whiny. Cole was just okay as a hero. He was a bit of a jerk towards the end but they still had their HEA. My biggest complaints are it took so long to get to the sexy times and there wasn't the usual banter that typically draws me into romance like my usual reads.

Would you be willing to try another book from Lauren Layne? Why or why not?

Sure, she's a good writer.

Fantastic series starter!

I have to admit that a story centering around a men’s magazine didn’t really get me all excited to read it (or listen, as the case may be). But this series came highly recommended to me and so I decided it was time to see if it lives up to the hype. And, guess what? IT TOTALLY DOES!

I was sucked into this story immediately. It took me a little time to adjust to the narrator, but by the end of the book I felt like she was perfect for this story. The romance is sweet and sexy and unexpectedly deep. There are no frustrating willful miscommunications or immaturity. Instead we get authentic, completely lovable characters and a fantastically heartwarming story.

Loved it! Definitely recommend!

Amazing book and amazing reader!

If you could sum up Irresistibly Yours in three words, what would they be?

Absolutely wonderful book

What did you like best about this story?

Loved the interplay between Penelope and Cole. They were mostly honest with each other, traded barbs but also had respect for each others skills. He's a player with women but doesn't come on strong with Penelope. She's not very experienced but she holds her own with Cole.

What does Lucy Malone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a great job showing Pen's insecurities but keeping her spunky! I also enjoyed how she voiced Bobby, thought she did a great job.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It started at Yankee stadium....

Any additional comments?

I loved the book when I first read it and loved it just a much listening to it.
