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.
Review by Lorena
I would like to stress to you that I love reading forbidden novels. Each and every one that I've read have had a unique story line.
This story was cute, cheecky and irresistibly sexy. A cute couple that are super hot and sexy together.
Jackson and Mollie are forbidden to each other because he happens to be none other than her brother-in-law but he finds himself attracted to her.
Madison and Jackson have been divorced but now she's back and wants her ex-husband back. The problem is that Jackson doesn't want her back. He can't seem to get his sister-in-law out of his mind.
Can Mollie and Jackson make it work if they even tried? They both have feelings for each other but Madison is what prevents them from being together.....or does she?
Totally enjoyed this forbidden romance book. I speak for myself and think that this was a great read. I didn't read the first book but plan on going back and reading it too now that I read I Wish You Were Mine.
