Goodreads Summary:
Lauren Layne’s Sex, Love & Stiletto series simmers to a boil as two high-powered magazine writers find love amid a war of words.

As a leading columnist for Stiletto, Grace Brighton has built a career warning women about rotten, cheating liars. She just never suspected her fiancé would be one of them. After Grace takes a heart-mending hiatus, her first assignment is to go on a couple of dates with a counterpart from the men’s magazine Oxford and report her impressions. Grace 1.0 may have been instantly smitten with the gorgeous correspondent, but Grace 2.0 has sworn off relationships for six months, and she’s not falling for his outstanding bod and trophy-winning kisses . . . or is she?

Jake Malone wants to get back to the fly-by-night, who-knows-what’s-next guy he used to be, and he knows exactly how to do it. Oxford is adding a travel section, and Jake—with no wife and no kids and a willingness to live anywhere, eat anything, do everything—is perfect for the job . . . except that his playboy reputation makes his new editor nervous. To get the gig, he must agree to a fluffy joint article with Stiletto. But after just one date with snooty, sumptuous, sensational Grace Brighton, Jake starts taking this assignment a whole lot more seriously.


After loving After the Kiss, I knew I had to keep going with the Sex, Love & Stiletto series. Love the One You're With was equally as sexy as the first book in the series. The Stiletto girls are saucy and full of fun!

In this second book Grace Brighton and Jake Malone get thrown together to work on pieces for their respectable companies. Both agreeing for personal reasons. As hard as they tried to keep things professional neither could deny the stirring of something stronger and real as they spent more and more time together.

Grace was someone I rooted for without hesitation. She was always honest and genuine in her thoughts and actions. The Grace 1.0 and 2.0 inner voices were a little annoying at first but they grew on me. They turned out to be a fun way to express her inner turmoil. She did do some sneaky things but they were really for the sake of her articles for Stiletto.

I had some minor problems mainly with how the Grace and Jake coupling was a lot less memorable than the Julie and Mitchell pair. Grace and Jake were steaming hot together but they didn't give me as exciting feels. I did really enjoy their battle of the sexes. Super entertaining with no harm done.

After reading all the synopsis to the Sex, Love & Stiletto books I'm most interested to read Riley and Sam's story. We got a tiny preview of them in Love the One You're With but I couldn't be more excited to see them in action!
