I Knew You Were Trouble (Oxford #4)

I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE                    LAUREN LAYNE

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.

PAT'S REVIEW


What a fun read. First, there is Taylor, who is working at an ad agency in Manhattan and feels like she has the perfect job. The thing is that on her first day she meets a man in the elevator who described her to her face as an ice princess. Nick works at the same agency part time and also as a bartender, and is also a writer. All of these jobs for some reason seem to bother Taylor and from the first day forward they are constantly going back and forth, Nick seems to think it as playful banter. Nick is always trying to fix things or help people, but when he finds out that she is dating Bradley another co-worker he is trying to figure out why. On the day when she finds out that her Aunt who raised has passed away suddenly it is Nick who gives her words of encouragement. On her big day of moving into a new apartment and one with her boyfriend, he leaves a letter saying he can’t move in and goes back to his girlfriend before her another work employee. Now stuck and need a roommate, you guessed it Nick moves in and this is where the fun and games really take off. They become a couple after a while and you find out so many things about the two of them. Everything is good until he has to go to Oregon for a book convention and see his family, asking her to go with him she declines. This is where the story takes a turn when he gets back and walks in on her and Bradley in a conversation. Not getting it all everything falls apart and does not go as either one of them planned for the night. Now it is really up to Nick to find a way to right the ship. Can he do it? Read this fun story about two people growing up together, there are a few twists at the end which add for a good ending. A really good book. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
