USA TODAY BESTSELLER • In this charming Oxford Novel, hailed by Keri Ford as “a sizzling-loud friends-to-lovers story,” Lauren Layne poses a provocative question: What do you do when you fall in love with your sister’s ex?
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.

Loved Jackson and Mollie
I pretty much enjoy anything this author writes. I think it is because of the way her stories flow. There is usually good dialogue between the characters and while there is some drama it is not overly done. And before you know it you are at the end. The situation between Jackson and Mollie is a little tricky. They first met at Jackson’s wedding to her sister, Madison. You could feel just a little spark between the two at that time. Mollie fell “in love with the groom” but of course she knew nothing could/would ever come of it. Fast forward a number of years. After being involved in a car accident, Jackson’s career as a quarterback with the Texas Redhawks is finished. Oh and so is his marriage. Hence his new job at the Oxford Magazine. Jackson struggles a little in his new job. He was defined by his status as a football player and to have it taken away so suddenly is hard for him to grasp. He is standoffish and doesn’t fit in with the crowd at work. Jackson offers Mollie a place to stay. He begins to really start to see how Mollie is all grown up, how sweet, beautiful and desirable she has become. But Mollie struggles with their growing romance. She doesn’t want to betray her sister, but she wants to do something for herself for a change. But what happens when Jackson finally falls for the right sister? This is another good read by Lauren Layne. I love how she is able to pull in the characters from the other books and make them an integral part of this story. You get a little peak into how things have changed for them since their stories. Perhaps we will finally get to see Lincoln’s story soon?
A well thought out Love Story.
Would have given 5 stars but typo errors, a hanging letter belonging nowhere. Tighter editing & proof reading would have earned a full 5⭐️.
