ARC REVIEW I Wish You Were Mine by Lauren Layne
Mollie and Jackson have quite a past they were in-laws. Unfortunately Mollie fell in love with Jackson the night he married her sister. Through the marriage Jackson and Mollie became close they became best friends. When Jackson started having problems with Madison, Mollie was the one he went confided in. Madison became a manipulative, cheating, spotlight hogging b***h. She loved the notoriety she got being married to a NFL player. She started horrible rumors about him just to make her cheating self look good to her fans. When Jackson was in a horrible accident and was forced to retire, he wasn't even out of the hospital before she served him divorce papers. Jackson was devastated by the end of his career and his marriage he found himself with a wide open future and no idea what to do. He finds himself moving to New York with the new job as fitness editor for Oxford magazine; he picked New York because that's where Mollie was.
Mollie had mixed feeling about Jackson being in town she was happy he was here but sadden by the fact it meant it was because his career and marriage were over. Mollie was looking for a place to live and Jackson offered one of his spare rooms until she could find another place. Both Jackson and Mollie didn't want to feel the way they felt because Madison. But passion overrides any doubt and they end up in bed together. Jackson's hesitancy to move forward and face the fact that his career in football is over comes between him and Mollie as well as Madison who always has an ulterior motive.
Overall, this was a great one and it sets up a little for Lincoln's story which I'm happy to say will be the next book.
