REVIEW: I Wish You Were Mine by Lauren Layne

A lnaked couple embracing each other in the darkness


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.

As always I want to thank Random House Loveswept and Netgalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

I think what most attracted me to this book when I first came across it was the forbidden love aspect of it. Jackson has never forgotten the one woman who has always been there for him, but she’s is ex-sister-in-law, that makes it all too taboo. I enjoyed seeing how Jackson adapts to the new life he is having to live. Yes it takes him some time to really get his feet under him in what he needs to do to find a new normal and a new home, but he gets there. Of course it is made so much easier by Mollie and her unwavering support of him. Madison was a bitch and I really hated her. She was such a spoiled little girl when she is supposed to be the older more mature of the two sisters. It was also fun to see the old Stiletto crew in this book. I love re-uniting with previous characters.

I gave this book 4 supporting kisses… 

Happy Reading… Adri
