Publisher's Summary

It all starts as pretend.

To everyone else, Hunter is the most powerful man in New York. Respected by his associates and feared by his competitors.

But to me? He's just my best friend. my sexy-as-hell best friend.

It was easy to agree to help him fake a romance.

After all, who knows him like I do? Convincing his tight-knit family takes a little more: An unexpected kiss that makes my skin sizzle, my knees go weak.

Before I know it, our banter turns to flirting and Hunter's hell-bent on charming me. On our first night together, we barely keep our hands off each other. Our second night together is intense and alluring and it lights me on fire.

How can I pretend I'm not falling for real?

Great story

Enjoyed the chemistry between Joseph and Hunter. Hunter is a sucessful businessman who has been in the states for most of his life. The only way he sees he can stay in the states is to marry his best friend Josie. Sounds like a doable plan until they kiss

Frustrating

Was getting over Josie constantly having doubts, or them not telling each other how they were feeling, it was a slow drag and a little frustrating, but I love Layla Hagen’s books, but this one wasn’t her best, but will definitely still listen to the rest of the series.

This was boring

I stuck with it, hoping it would get better but it never did. I fast forwarded through some of the 2nd half, especially the sex scenes!!
Waaaaay too many sex scenes

Sweet & Sexy Love Story

You’re the One is my first book by Layla Hagen and it definitely will not be the last. This is a best friends to lovers story and this author had me hooked right from the beginning with her storytelling. I thoroughly enjoyed Hunter and Josie’s friendship, his immediate trust in that friendship when he went to her for advice with his problem. I loved that Josie is a strong, independent career woman who can take care of herself and does not come across as a damsel in distress; in fact, Josie is the one that is there for Hunter in his time of need. Hunter is swoon worthy especially when he continuously springs surprises on Josie just to make her happy and makes her heart melt. The dialogue in this book flowed seamlessly and I loved seeing their interaction with each other and their friends and family.

I love audiobooks narrated by Joe Arden and this was my first time listening to Maxine Mitchell. I loved their performance and they really brought the characters and this story to life for me. I could feel all the different range of emotions Hunter and Josie experienced along with those of the secondary characters. I smiled and laughed as I devoured this book. These two narrators have helped me discover another author for me to read and I’m really looking forward to the next book in this series.

Good start and then it just fell flat

I was really invested in this story because I love interconnected series and I know how popular this author is. The story started very strong until at about 80% it sort of fizzled. I have no idea why, but the pace of the story hit a bump and I just was taken aback, Of course things worked out at the end but it's hard to stay excited and want to invest in the rest of the series when a book starts out strong and then it didn't reach its full potential. The narration by both Joe Arden & Maxine Mitchell was FANTASTIC!!

Ok

I am normally the type of person who likes most books I read and I’m not saying this wasn’t good, it started off good at least and then by the end it kinda dragged and got boring. I wanted it to hurry up. I’m not a big fan of Maxine Mitchell, every book that I’ve listened to with her in it, I feel like she sounds constantly panicked. I don’t think I’m going to listen to the rest of the series at this point. Maybe I’ll try it down the road.

Sexy Best friends to lovers

I love a good best friends to lovers story and that is what this was. Hunter and Josie have an awesome relationship. They have been best friends for 15 years. Now Hunter neeeds Josie and there is nothing she won’t do for him, even marry him but this marriage of convenience quickly takes a turn. This is a steamy story with some great narrators in Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell’s.

Amazing Story!

Love love loved Josie and Hunters story! Josie and Hunter have been best friends forever, Hunter is a British citizen living and working in the USA and he has been notified that his Visa was not being renewed. I fell in love with Hunter and Josie before this, their personality shined through their characters their chemistry was off the charts even though neither of them wanted to ruin their friendship by crossing those lines. I loved following their journey as they discover more about each other and their true feelings for each other that go beyond “fake”. Find out if they acknowledge their true feelings before it is too late. You also meet and the rest of the family. I am looking forward to the next book in this series! I loved the narration, well paced and well performed.

Cute, sexy story of friends who marry and then fall in love

This is book 1 of a new series so there are a number of characters that are barely introduced. The heroine, attorney Josie has a number of siblings and hero Hunter, a wealthy real estate magnate and philanthropist has several cousins so there are plenty potentials for future books before any new characters come on the scene with friends and family. The plot concerns British born Hunter’s need to either take a chance of being approved of a green card quickly or marrying his American born best friend. Not even a mention of Dreamer laws but there was an insensitive, abrasive immigration investigator and a really horrible Scrooge of a partner at the law firm Josie worked at. The drama drags some and slows the pace towards the end and the epilogue was a lot of sunshine and rainbows chatter that did nothing for this story or the next but the rest was pretty predictable and pleasant. The narrator are pros who frequently work together so their narration had a rhythm. This is a good candidate for the escape package.

Can't wait for more

Layla Hagen once again starts of a new series with a bang. Another great family that listeners are going to instantly fall in love with. Best friends for 15 years Hunter and Josie have hidden their real feelings for each other and it is not until Hunter's green card comes into play that the chemistry flys of the page. But can a marriage based on convenience get past the immigration board? From the very first chapter to the last page in the book I was captivated with the interactions between Hunter and Josie. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell brought the characters to life.. With a perfect combination of friends to lovers romance and a story filled with laughter and love this is only the beginning. Cannot wait for more in the series!!

Few cute moments but gets monotonic very quickly

As someone who is used to listening to serious non-fiction, picking this up made me think I was back in my teens reading Nicholas Sparks. As someone in mid 20s, I was okay with having a few sex scenes thrown here and there and I thought the author had an interesting story exploring the evolution of childhood besties into lovers. Boy, did the author ruin the chance. It's cliched and you tend to question if the characters in context were ever actually friends. Besides touching on few topics like marriage scams, the book quickly hides itself in a male-dominated world where the girl has to sacrifice everything (including her last name and livelihood) to be with her best friend.

I loved it

You're The One was my first Layla Hagen novel and I loved it. This novel combined friend to lovers and fake marriage tropes into one sweet, feel good romance that had me hooked from beginning to end. I loved Hunter and Josie and enjoyed seeing them move from friends to so much more. Their flirty banter, intense chemistry and steamy scenes had me hooked and I loved their interactions with each other and their family. This was a fantastic story and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of contemporary romance.
I listened to the audiobook version of this novel which was narrated by Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell. These two were perfect choices for these characters infusing personality and emotion into their voices and bringing the story to life. I loved their voices and enjoyed listening to them narrate this novel.

Good read, no annoying characters

Easy and fun! Female narrator's voice was a bit aggy but not enough to put me off. I was rooting for them!

5 stars!

I’ve been a fan of Layla Hagen’s for a while now, so it’s no surprise when I say I LOVED THIS BOOK! Her writing flows smoothly, making this an easy read. While Josie is highly relatable, Hunter made me swoon! Their chemistry was off the charts and I was rooting for them from the start. This book is light, steamy, and VERY entertaining! I can’t wait to see what this author comes up with next!

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell were perfect for their roles and made the story come alive.

You’re the One is a friends-to-lovers, marriage-of-convenience contemporary romance written in dual first-person POV and performed in dual narration. It’s a standalone that ends with a HEA. No cliffhanger, no cheating.

I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

A great start to a new series.

What do you do when your best friend of 15 years can't get his US visa renewed? You do him a favour and marry him of course!

In my opinion, there is nothing quite like a friends to lovers storyline and in You're The One, Layla Hagan certainly delivers.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell as Hunter and Josie, guide us through the journey to their HEA beautifully.

Along the way we meet, what I hope are, future main characters in Hunter's cousins.

Oh my word!

I loved this audio so much. The characters and the story line are so much fun. The narration was so good. I enjoyed the dialogue and it felt like the narration just gave it an extra dimension. Totally worth it.
