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.

I don't know if it's possible but the Oxford series keeps getting better and better. Although Cole might have started out my favorite let's face it he has some competition when it comes to Jackson. 

In this book we get to learn all about Jackson and how his career ended and why his marriage did as well. I have to say I liked him with Mollie and couldn't stand his ex. 

My favorite character in this book had to be Mollie. She was sweet but she was determined to show Jackson she was everything he needed and that if he would let go of the past he actually has a great future with his new job and new friends. Without her I don't think Jackson would have stuck around to see what could've happened. 

Layne did an excellent job in telling their story and not making it look they were doing something wrong by getting together. I also enjoyed that Jackson finally started to get to know his co workers. They are a bunch of fun guys and girls and I think he needed it to start to fit in. 

If you haven't started this series I suggest you start right away. The men of Oxford are taking over one book at time. Next up looks like Lincoln and oh boy I can't wait! This was a great addition to this series!
