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.
Mollie Carrington was twenty the first time she fell in love.
I Wish You Were Mine is the second book in the Oxford Series written by Lauren Layne. This book focuses on Jackson Burke, recently was a star quarterback with multiple super bowl rings under his belt but with the recent injury his now sitting behind a desk at Oxford magazine.
After 8 years Mollie and Jackson meet up and quickly begins a romance that puts Mollie at odds with her own sister as Jackson Burke is her older sister’s ex-husband.
Lauren Layne knows how to engross her readers and make you completely addicted to the book at hand. It was witty, steamy and full of humour. I just loved it and can’t wait to read more from her.
