Описание

A year ago, Jackson Burke was married to the love of his life and playing quarterback for the Texas Redhawks. Now he's retired and single. 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 that 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.

Contains mature themes.

    "I Wish You Were Mine" by Lauren Layne is book two in the Oxford series. This is the story of Jackson Burke and Mollie Carrington.Jackson was the quarterback for the Texas Redhawks, married to the love of his life, and life was great. Then he was in a car accident that ruined his football career and he is now single. Jackson is now working as a columnist for Oxford magazine, but very frustrated with his life. There is one person that has always been there for him and she is his ex-wife's younger sister.Mollie and Jackson have been friends for a long time. Their friendship lasted through his divorce to her sister Madison. Mollie has always loved Jackson but never acted on her feelings.Situations play into Mollie and Jackson spending a lot of time together. Will Jackson see Mollie as a woman and not his ex-wife's sister? Will Mollie act on her attraction to Jackson? There were times in the book that I got frustrated with Jackson and Mollie. Jackson still seems to be hung up on his ex-wife who is a nasty person. Nasty doesn't even describe how bad a person she is. Even though Madison treats Mollie horribly, she feels obligated to her since she practically raised her.I enjoyed Jackson and Madison's story. The intimate scenes were steamy too! The supporting characters were great. I want to go back and read the first book in this series. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Random House Publishing Group for an honest review. FYI, contains mature content.

    I received a copy of this from the publisher via NetGalley.Eight years ago, Jackson Burke, an American football player, married Madison. Madison has a sister called Mollie, who is eight years younger than her and whom she raised after the death of their mother. In the present Jackson and Madison are divorced, Jackson is working at Oxford magazine in NYC after a traffic accident ended his football career and is looking to pick up his (always affectionate) friendship with Mollie now that the divorce is out of the way.I struggled a bit with this book because the things I thought were best about it – the realistic portrayal of the complications of falling for your sister’s ex-husband/ex-wife’s sister – just weren’t very romantic. There are reasons why it isn’t a good idea (and these were explored here) and it was all just the tiniest bit “icky”. Mollie had always had romantic feelings for Jackson and we are told early on that Mollie is the reason he has moved to NYC and part of me couldn’t stop finding this a bit inappropriate.Jackson wasn’t a terribly likeable person either: initially he was offensively rude to his work colleagues and I had real difficulty accepting that he was a health and fitness writer whose articles were really well-written – he showed no discernable interest in writing or in health and fitness, except I think for one reference to him going to the gym. Mollie’s work life was a bit insubstantial too, other than being the reason why they had to stay in NYC.Mollie seemed to forgive Jackson very readily for not having told her that all along he was striving to get a coaching job with his old team in Texas and leave her behind. He told Madison (but then, they had a shared history – see ickiness above) and also had that two-hour dinner with her (ditto). I did enjoy the scene where Jackson returns to Texas and never makes it out of the airport, though.The Oxford setting had no real impact on the plot and seemed just there to tie this story into the series, which is clearly gearing up to focus on Lincoln next.
