A year ago, Jackson Burke was married to the love of his life and playing quarterback for the Texas Redhawks. Now he's retired and single. 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 that 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.

"A smart, sexy, and absolutely irresistible read." (Mira Lyn Kelly, author of Truth or Dare)
I feel this was a decent story but I couldn't get past the narration. From the moment the book started I disliked the readers voice. I stuck it out til the end hoping I would just get used to it, but no such luck. I would suggest listening to the preview before purchasing this book, if the narrators voice doesn't bother you, then and only then would I definitely recommend you use a credit/$ on this one.
Really great listen, a lovely story of a former Quarterback Jackson who is trying to find a new life after injury, and his ex-wife's younger sister, Molly, who he has had a great, long-standing close friendship with. Molly is a science nerd, who has had a long-standing crush on Jack, and is a quite relatable and likable character. Nice drama and fun as well...the ex-wife Madison is a nasty diva. Oh, the complexities of former sister and brother-in-law in a relationship! Really liked this.
