Goodreads Summary:
As Lauren Layne’s salacious Sex, Love & Stiletto series returns, a jaded columnist discovers a steamy way to get over an old flame: falling for him all over again.

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 fiancée . . . 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.



My binge-read of this series has concluded with this last book. I'm a little sad but The Trouble with Love was every bit as fun and sexy as the previous Sex, Love & Stiletto books.

This second chance love story worked for me. It helped that we've been seeing them here and there since the second book in the series. With all the build up I couldn't not be excited for Emma and Cassidy's story. Especially given the knowledge that their engagement ended on bad terms, things were bound to be juicy!

Emma and Cassidy are the same type of people: cool, calm and collected. Even if they didn't admit it outwardly, both were still dealing with their broken engagement. It was heartbreaking to learn of their past but the tender moments and sexy times they share so many years later still felt natural. They made for a frustrating pair but at the same time I really enjoyed the coldness they shared towards each other. Their civil treatment of one another only served to amp up the tension between them more and more over time. Further proof that they belonged together.

I love love loveeeee the friendship between all the Stiletto ladies and their men. They seem a little too perfect but one can dream right? Whether it's the girls' hilarious teasing nature or the guys' awful advice session, I adored them all. Such a tight-knit group of friends.

Now that I've finished the Stiletto books I'm not sure if I should take a break or jump right into the companion series. Although with the peeks we got of the Oxford men, I'm positively sure I'll get sucked right in ;)
