Publisher's Summary

As Stiletto magazine's authority on all things breakup-and-heartache, Emma Sinclair writes from personal experience. 

Five years ago, Emma was Charlotte, North Carolina's darling debutante and a blushing bride-to-be. Now she's the ice queen of the Manhattan dating scene. Emma left her sultry Southern drawl behind, but not even her closest friends know that with it she left her heart. 

Now Emma's latest article forces her to face her demons - namely, the devilishly, sexy guy who ditched her at the altar. 

After giving up everything for a pro-soccer career, Alex Cassidy watches his dreams crumble as a knee injury sidelines him for good. Now he's hanging up his cleats and giving journalism a shot. It's just a coincidence that he happens to pick a job in the same field, and the same city, as his former fiancee . . . right? 

But when Emma moves in next door, it's no accident. It's research. And Alex can't help wondering what might have been. Unlike the innocent girl he remembers, this Emma is chic, sophisticated, and assertive - and she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. The trouble is, Alex has never wanted her more. Contains mature themes.

Love, love, love!

This is my favorite Lauren Layne book, which is saying a lot because I love all of her books. I’ve probably read this five times, I wasn’t sure if I needed the audiobook but I’m so glad I bought it. Don’t hesitate, this book is amazing!

A Novella Disguised as a Full-length Story.

This was the most difficult story to immerse myself. When first introduced, Emma had struck me as the only one of the four with a level head. Her own story, however, was unrealistically goofy. Yes, it’s fiction. But, Layne has always had a thread of reality that was relatable to her readers. Far too much wringing of hands an no communication. No way would a person with the inability to make a choice, or speak their mind be considered for, let alone get, a dream job as Emma’s.
The angst of Emma seemed to be less story-related & more word count related-leaving this Layne Fan truly disappointed.

So gooooood

I didn’t think I’d be more in love, but each book in this series just melts my heart more and more.

The Trouble With Love

Oh YES! We knew there was so much going on under all that ice between Emma Sinclair and Alex Cassidy and now we have the story behind it all. Add in all the characters of both the Stiletto and the Oxford magazines and this one has angst, banter, lust, sass, and a wedding, oh yeah, and of course lots of sexy times to keep it going. So perfect!
