In this charming Oxford Novel, hailed by Keri Ford as “a sizzling-loud friends-to-lovers story,” Lauren Layne poses a provocative question: What do you do when you fall in love with your sister’s ex?
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.

My Thoughts:
Every time I read a Lauren Layne book, it immediately becomes my favorite and I think that I can't possibly like a book more than that one. I thought that Cole and Penelope's book was my favorite, but after reading this one. it's my new favorite. 
Jackson and Mollie are just so right for each other. Jackson was married to Mollie's older sister, Madison. He has always had more in common with Mollie though, Madison's younger "nerdy" sister. No one really understood the bond that Mollie and Jackson had, not even Madison. 
After having his football career ended, Jackson takes a position at Oxford, a position that he will up and leave as soon as he gets a coaching job back in Texas. Mollie needs a new place to live and Jackson offers up his guest room, he has always been attracted to Mollie, but he never thought he would fall in and find himself in the position of having to choose his dream job or his dream girl. 
This book had steamy sex scenes , a manipulating ex-wife\sister, and all the hotness of the Oxford men. This is a book that you can't not read.
