Review: Someone Like You by Lauren Layne

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.

I’m not sure how Author Lauren Layne can manage to make me love her stories more with each one I read but somehow she does absolutely that. Every time I sit down to dive in to one of her books I get that giddy excited feeling because I just know it’s going to be delightful. Someone Like You was more incredible than I could have ever imagined. Lincoln Mathis’s story was like no other that I have read by this Author. It was exceptionally well written and didn’t go at all like I thought it would. Lincoln’s story was not only compellingly emotional but it was breathtaking and it completely stole my heart. It is not one that I will soon forget, that is for sure.

From reading the other books in the series I always thought that Lincoln was your typical playboy that was just out for a good time. Boy was I so wrong about him.

“You must be Lincoln Mathis, the Manwhore of Whom I should beware?”

“You must be Daisy Sinclair, delicate flower to whom I’m not to speak.”

When Lincoln & Daisy meet, they have an instant connection to one another. Daisy recently has been through a lot of turmoil in her life and is a little shy about getting involved with anyone. Lincoln isn’t looking for a relationship at all but these two become fast friends and that is where the story simply grabs your heart and keeps tugging on it right up until the final page.

Someone Like You is humorous, enduring, genuine and beyond heartfelt. It really took my breath away at times. I totally fell in love with it and it is one of my top reads of 2016. What do you do when you have to move on from lost love? How do you let go of what could have been? What should have been?

“You do the only thing you can do, love.”
