Perfect for fans of Alice Clayton and Emma Chase, Lauren Layne’s Oxford series heats up in this story of forbidden desire as a brooding jock hoping for a comeback falls for a woman who’s strictly off-limits.

A year ago, Jackson Burke was married to the love of his life and playing quarterback for the Texas Redhawks. Now he’s retired, courtesy of the car accident that ruined his career—and single, after a nasty scandal torpedoed his marriage. Just as he’s starting to get used to his new life as a health and fitness columnist forOxford magazine, his unpredictable ex shows up on his doorstep in Manhattan. Jackson should be thrilled. But he can’t stop thinking about the one person who’s always been there for him, the one girl he could never have: her younger sister.

Mollie Carrington can’t say no to Madison. After all, her older sister practically raised her. So when Madison begs for help in winning her ex-husband back, Mollie’s just glad she got over her own crush on Jackson ages ago—or so she thought. Because as Mollie reconnects with Jackson, she quickly forgets all her reasons to stay loyal to her sister. Tempted by Jackson’s mellow drawl and cowboy good looks, Mollie is sick and tired of coming in second place. But she can’t win if she doesn’t play the game.

Mollie Carrington is having an interesting first conversation with Jackson Burke.  She also has to do something that she’s not looking forward to and Jackson has the solution.  He reminds us that our life isn’t set in stone – there are challenges and bumps in the road.  Mollie reminds us that no matter how much we want it not all our family members know what love is – and they can be cruel.

The author has created an intriguing story and with American football winding down, what a perfect time to read this book.  She has also created a character that gave me the reason to turn the page.  I may surprise you but it is Mollie’s sister, Madison.  I had to know what she was up to.  She would be the perfect soap opera character.  Our author makes the story seem so real – the characters are so believable.

With all the stories going on here, you’ll find it very hard to put down.  You could read this story as a stand-alone but there are characters from the first book here so you may find yourself wanting to know more about them.  I fell in love with Lincoln and you’ll understand as you get to know him.  The ending left me smiling and wanting more.  A disappointment is that we will have to wait until December for Someone Like You to come out but Ms. Layne has plenty of other books coming out so the wait won’t seem so long.
