Oxford #3
Lauren Layne
Releasing Dec 6th, 2016

Lauren Layne’s bestselling Oxford Series continues with the poignant, heartwarming story of New York’s most eligible bachelor, Lincoln Mathis, a man who’s living a lie—until his dream woman takes away the pain.
Lincoln Mathis doesn’t hide his reputation as Manhattan’s ultimate playboy. In fact, he cultivates it. But behind every flirtatious smile, each provocative quip, there’s a secret that Lincoln’s hiding from even his closest friends—a tragedy from his past that holds his heart quietly captive. Lincoln knows what he wants: someone like Daisy Sinclair, the sassy, off-limits bridesmaid he can’t take his eyes off at his best friend’s wedding. He also knows that she’s everything he can never have.
After a devastating divorce, Daisy doesn’t need anyone to warn her off the charming best man at her sister’s wedding. One look at the breathtakingly hot Lincoln Mathis and she knows that he’s exactly the type of man she should avoid. But when Daisy stumbles upon Lincoln’s secret, she realizes there’s more to the charming playboy than meets the eye. And suddenly Daisy and Lincoln find their lives helplessly entwined in a journey that will either heal their damaged souls . . . or destroy them forever.

Advance praise for Someone Like You

“Fun and flirty, sassy and steamy, with a deep emotional pull that will keep you turning the pages.”—Kelly Jamieson, author of Top Shelf

“An unsung hero with a story that touched my heart. Emotional and gripping. A top favorite of 2016 for me.”
New York Times bestselling author Melanie Moreland

So, I was saving this one for when I was in the perfect mood, and I think anyone who is a loyal LL fan (or just a lover of romance in general) knows that you need to be in a certain mood for different type of books. I knew this one was going to gut me, so I had to mentally prepare and I didn't want to be rushed, I needed time to devour each word, have a good cry and come out feeling light and happy. I have to be honest, I do feel happy but I feel like SOMEONE LIKE YOU will be one of LL's books that will stay with me for a LONG LONG time. I absorbed the sadness and the joy and I just don't know what to feel right now. I feel like I need a BIG LONG cry, but it's not that I am sad, I am so happy I think. The end is just INCREDIBLE....I am getting emotional just thinking about it. 

Lincoln is a character that for so long lived in a place of fake, always quick with a joke, always flirting, keeping things on the surface, except for the love he had for his friends that had become more like family, but even they didn't know the truth. And lordy, be prepared to just break down, cause you will. The emotions from this book will consume you and you will feel a WHOLE lot from sad to elated, to joy to pain to laughter, and then just happy, you will just be happy, the kind of bawling tears in your eyes HAPPY!

And I have to give LL a shout out for the mention of J.C. and a certain scene that always makes my heart melt.

SOMEONE LIKE YOU is one of LL's best. 5++ stars for this highly emotional, will wrap around your heart kind of a romance.
