Oxford #2
Lauren Layne
Releasing on February 2, 2016

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.


As an honorary member of the Lauren Layne Fan Club (Self made), I have to say, I wasn't sure if I was going to like I WISH YOU WERE MINE.  After Cole and Tiny (IRRESISTIBLY YOURS) and my four other favorite couples (The Sex, Love and Stiletto Series), I was like...Jackson does seem interesting, BUT.....

What was I THINKING....I WISH YOU WERE MINE had me laughing, crying, swooning like MEGA-Swooning, and falling so hard for Jackson and Mollie, I was sure that my heart would burst!  I WISH YOU WERE MINE has some of the BEST "lines" that will stick with me always, and will definitely be a re-read when I am in the mood for a Sexy, Steamy (like who LL....can we say it's getting HOTTT in the kitchen), and completely heartwarming romance.  

I love when I am so invested in a hero and heroine's story that I can't stop until I am at the last page, with tears streaming down my face, when things have gone black, I am literally in physical pain from the heartbreak.  Lauren Layne makes her characters come alive, and that is what a true writer does, they make the characters feel real to us, making us feel the high's and low's and all in between!

I WISH YOU WERE MINE is classic romance at it's finest!  Lauren Layne shines, her writing is superb and if you don't become a fan after this ....well...it MUST be you!
