    Loved the Characters!

    I really enjoyed this book, and I almost loved it, but there were a couple things that I didn't quite like, which I'll get to in a little bit; they are sort of spoilery so I'll give warning when I do. Jackson was living his dream as a quarterback for a pro-football team in Texas, but then he is in a car accident, which causes injuries to his shoulder and hip, so he can no longer play football, and to top it off, Jackson's wife, Madison, also divorces him shortly after the accident. Jackson is now working at Oxford magazine in New York, which is a great opportunity, but he is in a pretty down place, and is having a hard time adjusting to his new life. Mollie is Jackson's ex-wife's sister, who lives in New York and Jackson has always felt a connection with Mollie; Mollie is someone he could always talk to, and for him it wasn't necessarily a romantic connection, more of a friendship connection, but for Mollie, she feels more for Jackson than just friendship, and when Jackson and Mollie meet up for dinner, Jackson realizes that he may feel more for Mollie than just friendship, but both are trying to brush off their feelings because Jackson was Mollie's sister's husband. I loved the chemistry between Mollie and Jackson, and I liked both of them as characters. Mollie is feisty, smart, and I like her confidence. I like how she brings out the best in Jackson, and doesn't let him wallow around. They are definitely adorable together, and they have some great spicy scenes. The author did a great job of balancing story and romance. Despite the sort of taboo aspect of their relationship, I really wanted them to work out. There are characters from previous books, so you may want to read those first, but I don't think it is absolutely necessary, but there are some spoilers for the past books in this book, so you may want to take that into account. I love the scenes with the other guys and Penelope at the Oxford office. Those scenes were so fun, and all the characters are great! I'm really enjoying this series, and I look forward to more! Okay Spoiler Time!!! SPOILERS! I get that Mollie's sister, Madison, is sort of vile; she cheats often on Jackson and lies to the tabloids, and she only cares about herself, but I still wasn't in love with Mollie getting with her sister's ex-husband. Jackson really loved Madison; he says so in the book, and they were married for years; it wasn't just a flash in the pan type of thing, and even though Jackson wasn't happy in the marriage since almost the beginning; he still stayed married to Madison, and Madison was eventually the one who got the divorce. I think I would have liked for Jackson to not put up with that crap, and left at the first signs of how devious Madison is. It would have been better if Madison and Jackson's marriage was a fluke, or something. I also wish that Jackson had felt more for Mollie in the past. It seemed to me like he was only starting to notice her because she got a makeover. I know they always had a connection, but he never really noticed Mollie, so it made feel like Mollie got a bit of a raw deal.

    Loved it

    LOVED!! As with every Lauren Layne book I've read this one just made me smile and kept me completely entertained from beginning to end. The characters in this series feel like your best buddies and the story is light, witty, and warm. After a devastating car accident put an end to his NFL career, Jackson Burke is Oxford new health and fitness columnist. He's hoping it's a temporary gig until he can get his foot into the coaching door. Not only did he lose his career but as soon as the verdict came that he would never play again his marriage imploded. Mollie Carrington has always had a crush on Jackson. Him being married to her sister made that just a bit awkward. Luckily she was over that now. Right?? Now that he's in New York they have a chance to reconnect. That shouldn't be a problem. Right?? You definitely want to grab a copy of this one. I highly recommend it.

    If wishes were horses

    This is book # 2 in the Oxford series. This book is just fine as a standalone novel to read. I always tell my readers that it is better to read a series book in order as the author intended. This series is so much fun when read in order. Jackson and Mollie go way back. He used to be married to her sister. The same one who raised her after her mother died. Mollie was in love with him even then. Mollie gets to know the "after football" Jackson when he moves to New York for work. She is still there for school, and they get together and catch up. He is bowled over with how grown up she is now. Together, they spark some serious heat! This story is an amazing story of love, loss, and forgiveness. I cried and I laughed and enjoyed every page. Be wise: Pre-order! You will be glad that this book is on your shelf. I intend to re-read my copy when it comes out. ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley.com and its publisher for an honest review

    Oxford Series Book 2

    "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.

    Another great book in the Oxford series

    This book surprised me. Having read Cole and Penelope's story in Book One (Irresistibly Yours), I couldn't really envision how the author would manage to include an outsider (Jackson Burke) in the Oxford/Stiletto clique. It turned out better than I expected! When I realized the hero was the heroine's brother-in-law (ex brother-in-law, but still...) I wasn't sure how this was going to play out. I mean, it sounded all a little awkward and I wasn't sure if I'd like the story after all - I'm personally not a fan of love triangles, and even though Jackson and Madison are divorced by the time he moves to New York and meets up with Mollie, it still felt weird at first. The book has funny moments (the Oxford/Stiletto teams are hilarious and I wish I could be part of their group), swooning, romantic moments that will make your heart flutter, and sexy moments (that are downright steamy and descriptive, and prudish me could have done without them and still enjoyed the story all the same - but that's just prudish me, like I said). If you're a fan of Lauren Layne's books, I have no doubt you will love this book. If you've yet to discover the men of Oxford magazine, you should definitely consider starting now (I would recommend reading Irresistibly Yours first, but you can enjoy I Wish You Were Mine even if you haven't read the previous books, since both characters are new to the Oxford/Stiletto world). ***I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review***
