I Think I Love You
Wrapping up the Oxford series we hit on a friends to lovers story with a twist. Brit and Hunter have been friends, just platonic friends for a while now. Not surprising as Brit is friends with just about everyone. It’s just strange that she and Hunter have never crossed the line. She’s tired of it all, though: she wants to be wanted and be in love like her friends. And, when the latest ‘prospect’ dumped her, she’s feeling like it is a problem with her. If only she knew how to move from the friendly banter she has with everyone, and find a way to femme fatale……
Hunter is a chick magnet, but in a way that doesn’t make him one of those ‘poster boys for douchery’. He’s content with the friendship with Brit – in fact, it’s nice to have a female’s perspective when she’s got no ulterior motives where he’s concerned. And he trusts Brit to be his friend, and that they can share everything, implicitly. But, when her last option heads south for greener pastures, and she asks him to show her just what men want, and how she can seduce them with an eye to more – he’s conflicted. He helps, but he’s conflicted.
Of course, we all know that the lessons bring them both to new revelations: perhaps Brit’s looking outside of the office for a new man that isn’t her boss isn’t what she wants after all. But, will Hunter stop being immovable in the face of her more ‘obvious’ plays for him, or can they find a way to discover one another along with a hope for the future? Told in 3rd person POV, the story is light and quick, with plenty of moments from the whole crew that we’ve met earlier, showing connections and friendships as they’ve grown and developed over the years. Brit is particularly adorable with her series of challenges as she is trying to epitomize the standards she believes are needed to achieve her goals. And when she starts to set her sights on Hunter, the awkwardness of her ‘new skills’ combined with Hunter’s hands-off policy just show the sweetness of their relationship as it is, and what it could be. A solid conclusion to the series, and sure to bring a tear to many as they think of another series end.

A game of seduction between two best friends goes deliciously wrong in an irresistible Oxford Novel that brims with wit and sexual tension.
Brit Robbins knows that dating in New York City is hard—she just hoped to have it mastered by age thirty. But after yet another promising suitor says they have no sparks, Brit decides it’s time to torch her dating game and try a new plan. And who better to coach Brit through the art of seduction than the guy who first gave her the “let’s be friends” card?
Hunter Cross has always figured there’s nothing his best friend Brit can do to surprise him. But Brit’s request is a surprise he doesn’t see coming—and one he’s definitely not prepared for. Hunter and Brit have always been careful to keep things perfectly platonic, but the fake dates and faux flirting are starting to feel like the real deal. And soon Hunter realizes he has taught Brit too well. Not only has she become an expert at seduction, the man becoming thoroughly seduced is him.
