Irresistibly Yours by Lauren Layne

Irresistibly Yours by Lauren Layne
Series: Oxford #1 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: October 6th 2015
Add to Goodreads

Meet the men of Oxford magazine! In the first captivating spin-off of Lauren Layne’s Sex, Love & Stiletto series, a not-so-friendly battle of the sexes turns into a scorching office romance.

Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures 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. Cole usually likes his women flirty and curvy, but he takes a special interest in his skinny, sassy rival, if only to keep an eye on her. And soon, he can’t take his eyes off her.

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’s 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.

Promo Tour + Playlist & Giveaway: Thrive by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Thrive Tour Banner
Click the banner to see other stops on the tour!

Welcome to the first stop on the THRIVE promo tour!! I’m so excited to be a part of the tour, because guess what? The ADDICTED series is amazing!!!! It’s one of my all-time favorite series ever. I seriously love this series so much–the characters, the stories, everything! I can’t recommend it enough!

THRIVE is book #2.5 of the Addicted series, and releases on July 18th! 8 more days until we get Lily and Lo again (I’ve missed them both so much)!! Even though this is book #2.5, it should not be skipped. It shouldn’t be skipped especially if you haven’t read the Calloway Sisters series, because some MAJOR things happen within Thrive’s timeline.

I have for you all the THRIVE PLAYLIST and a fabulous giveaway from the lovely Krista & Becca Ritchie today! So read and listen on to get a feel of what THRIVE will be like!

I leave you with one more note:



These are the songs that inspired us while writing Thrive and/or they were songs that we heavily listened to while we wrote the book.


“Set Me Free (Feel My Pain)” by Charli XCX – The entire book and the tone and the feels can be summed up with this one song. It will always remind us of Lily and Lo’s love and their arc in Thrive.


“Sleep Forever” by Portugal. The Man – For some strange reason, Portugal. The Man is always the perfect music to write to. And this song has so many Lily & Lo vibes.

“Grins” by Charli XCX – Another Charli XCX song. Honestly, we love her True Romance album. We listened to this song when we wrote the Comic-Con scene.

“We Are Stars” by The Pierces – Major LiLo feels. Lyrics: I just wanna be loved by you / I see nothing worse than to sail this universe without you.


“Diamonds” by Johnnyswim  – This song has major Connor & Rose feels. Upbeat, inspiring and powerful—it fits them so well during the happiest parts of their journey.

“On You Side” by Safety Suit – This song is also upbeat and reminds us of each couple, especially Lily & Lo. Lyrics: I am on your side, beginning to the end you know / beginning to the end you know / so I am never going to leave you aside / it doesn’t matter where you go

“Burn” by The Pretty Reckless – This is a Loren Hale angst song for us. He has a lot of moments in part two where he’s tested. Lyrics: Here comes the darkness / It’s eating on my soul

“Take Me Church” by Hozier –  Ditto to the “Burn”—this song exudes some serious Loren Hale angst, and it’s great to listen to during some of his scenes.


“My Silver Lining” by First Aid Kit – We listened to this one when we were writing any Ryke & Lo scenes. It reminds us of their complicated relationship, and their individual demons. Lyrics: I don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow / Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I’ve got to go

“Basic Instinct” by The Acid  – This one reminds us of Lo and his arc throughout Thrive.

“Skin & Bones” by David J. Roch – Lo again. But unlike Basic Instinct (above) this song we listened to heavily during his scenes towards the end of the book. Lyrics: Don’t lose your soul, you must fight for each breath / Don’t go quietly

“Retrograde” by James Black – We usually write to this song with serious scenes between Lily & Lo or scenes with Jonathan Hale.

“The Cold” by Exitmusic – We wrote a couple huge scenes to this song. It’s one of those powerful tempos that stir your emotions. And it definitely suited the book in a couple instances.

“Bygone” by Volcano Choir – The end of the book, this is a song that just reminds us of Loren Hale the minute it starts playing.


“Waiting” by Alice Boman – We just discovered this song, and we think it really fits Lily and Lo’s overall story—not just Thrive. They’ve been waiting for each other for a while. To overcome all their demons and struggles. They’ve been waiting to be together fully and without restraint.

About Thrive

Thrive by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Title: Thrive
Author: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Series: Addicted #2.5 (full reading order below)
Pub Date: July 18th, 2014
Add to Goodreads

Two years will change them forever.

When rumors spread like wildfire—like having three-ways with her boyfriend’s rock climbing brother—Lily Calloway spirals into a dark place. Her bedroom. Loren Hale is more confident and determined to keep their sex life private, even from their friends, and he helps Lily in the only way he knows how. But how much love is too much?

Their lives are filmed, watched, and criticized. And through it all, Lily and Loren have to face enemies they never thought they’d see, demons they don’t know if they should bury, and setbacks they didn’t think they’d meet. Not this soon.

And one rumor could be too much for them to handle. It will test their greatest limitations, and if they don’t hold onto each other, someone is going to drown.

A full-length New Adult Romance that bridges the gap between the second and third books. Thrive must be read before Addicted After All if you have not read the Calloway Sisters spin-off
