Review: I Wish You Were Mine by Lauren Layne

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 just finished this book a little while ago today. Can someone please tell me why my face is flushed and I still have that warm tingling fuzzy feeling inside me? Oh yeah! That’s right! This book will make you feel like that. I know that each time I read a Lauren Layne book I always say I loved this one the most but I am totally serious when I say I think this one is my all time favorite of hers. I absolutely cherished Jackson & Mollie’s love story. I never wanted to see it end.

I felt all the feels with this book. The nervousness of that first love, feeling. The butterflies in your stomach from hearing all the things you’ve wanted to hear for so long. The steamy.. like fog up your kindle screen sex scenes and of course the irritation of that one self- centered person. (You will know who I am talking about once you read the book and you will want to slap her just like I did!)

Jackson was purrrfect! He said all the right things. He said the sweetest things. He was bossy when I wanted him to be and sensitive when he needed to be. Just perfect! Mollie was just as great. She wasn’t afraid to tell Jackson how she was feeling, not afraid to put it all out there and take that leap of faith. Their friendship was funny, uplifting, sexy, hot and it made me feel all warm and happy inside. This was a fantastic, romantic read and one of Lauren’s best to date in my opinion!
