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 forOxford 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.

What a great story regarding forbidden love. This book draws you in and has you gripped from beginning to end. Sometimes the heart wants what it wants and you can’t help who you fall in love with. I couldn’t help feeling sorry for both Mollie and Jackson throughout this book, would they ever catch a break and get the HEA they both deserve.

This story started 8 years ago when Mollies sister married Jackson. Mollie had been in love with Jackson since she met him, but she could never act on it she always remained his friend.

When Jackson is involved in a career shattering crash and he is served Divorce papers his world is ripped apart. Yes he knew his marriage wasn’t in the best shape but he never expected to be kicked whilst he was down. With his career in tatters he leaves Texas and moves to New York where he becomes a sports fitness journalist at Oxford. He keeps himself to himself and he hasn’t spoken to Mollie for 8 mths but he knows she still cares as she updates him regularly.

Mollie loved Jackson and she couldn’t believe her sister had done what she had but if she was honest she had watched their downfall and stuck around to help pick up the pieces. She continues to reach out to Jackson but gets no reply until one day he agrees to meet with her.

After 8 mths of not seeing one another, Jackson is surprised to see the bombshell Mollie has become and Mollie realized she is still very much in love with this magnificent man. With their friendship back on track Jackson makes her an offer she can’t refuse….but are they both prepared for the consequences
