Also by this author: I Wish You Were Mine
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 for Oxford 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.

I Wish You Were Mine is the 2nd book in the Oxford series and I just loved it. Jackson’s football career ended abruptly, he is newly divorced and he is working at Oxford magazine of which he doesn’t want to do. He’s not happy but what brings a smile to his face is Mollie. His ex-wife’s sister. He’s always thought fondly of her but never crossed the line with her or for anyone of that matter no matter what his ex wife has said. He decides to help out Mollie by having her as his roommate. What he doesn’t expect is to having feelings for her. Mollie on the other hand has always loved Jackson but would never cross that line from friends to lovers because of her sister Madison. She never imagined that her feelings for him would resurface as hard as it did. Friends do become lovers but what happens when Jackson gets offered another job to do something else back home? Obstacles like this with Madison’s interference has Jackson second guessing what he should do. You will have all the feels for this story just like I did. I was instantly smitten with this story and can’t wait to read Lincoln’s story. Even though this is a first for me from this author, I have definitely become a fan! She’ll have you laughing out loud one minute to biting your nails the next because of the sexual tension. I can’t wait for more!!
