A feisty beauty must choose between
winning back Mr. Right 
or giving in to Mr. Wrong.

Oxford Series #4
Lauren Layne
Releasing June 13, 2017

New York City’s hottest bachelors are stirring up trouble in this fun, flirty Oxford Novel, as a love triangle forces a feisty beauty to choose between winning back Mr. Right or giving in to Mr. Wrong.

Taylor Carr has it all—a sleek job in advertising, a stunning Manhattan apartment, and the perfect man to share it with: Bradley Calloway. Even after Bradley dumps her for a co-worker on move-in day, Taylor isn’t worried. She’ll get her man eventually. In the meantime, she needs a new roommate. Enter Nick Ballantine, career bartender, freelance writer—and longtime pain in Taylor’s ass. Sexy in a permanent five-o’clock-shadow kind of way, Nick knows how to push Taylor’s buttons, as if he could see right through to the real her.

Nick’s always trying to fix people, and nobody could use a good fixing more than Taylor. Sure, she’s gorgeous, with mesmerizing silver eyes, but it’s her vulnerability that kills him. Now that they’re shacking up together, the chemistry is out of control. Soon they’re putting every part of their two-bedroom apartment to good use. Then Taylor’s ex comes crawling back to her, and Nick figures she’ll jump at the chance to go back to her old life—unless he fights for the best thing that ever happened to him.

I am a fan of the Oxford Series, and I knew I had to read I Knew You Were Trouble as soon as I could! That being said, this was not my favorite book in the series,

Taylor has it all. Good Job, Boyfriend. Life is good, Until she gets dumped the day she is to move in with her boyfriend. Her leaves her a "Dear John", leaving her stuck. She has to move in and needs a roommate. Enter Nick.

I liked Nick (most of the book). Him and Taylor has a love/hate relationship. It kept you on your toes.  You knew from page one that they would end up together... and I loved seeing them get there (the long roundabout way!).

I liked Nick  more than Taylor at times, but then there was times I didn't care for Nick either. It was overall a decent read for me. I just didn't love it like I usually love this series.
