Review - SOMEONE LIKE YOU by Lauren Layne

Lauren Layne’s bestselling Oxford Series continues with the poignant, heartwarming story of New York’s most eligible bachelor, Lincoln Mathis, a man who’s living a lie—until his dream woman takes away the pain.

Lincoln Mathis doesn’t hide his reputation as Manhattan’s ultimate playboy. In fact, he cultivates it. But behind every flirtatious smile, each provocative quip, there’s a secret that Lincoln’s hiding from even his closest friends—a tragedy from his past that holds his heart quietly captive. Lincoln knows what he wants: someone like Daisy Sinclair, the sassy, off-limits bridesmaid he can’t take his eyes off at his best friend’s wedding. He also knows that she’s everything he can never have.

After a devastating divorce, Daisy doesn’t need anyone to warn her off the charming best man at her sister’s wedding. One look at the breathtakingly hot Lincoln Mathis and she knows that he’s exactly the type of man she should avoid. But when Daisy stumbles upon Lincoln’s secret, she realizes there’s more to the charming playboy than meets the eye. And suddenly Daisy and Lincoln find their lives helplessly entwined in a journey that will either heal their damaged souls . . . or destroy them forever.

Lauren Layne’s USA Today bestselling Oxford series can be read in any order:

4.5 of 5 Stars

Lincoln and Daisy are both hiding from their past. Lincoln has everyone that he works with believing he is a ladies man when in fact his heart and soul belong to someone who doesn't even know who he is anymore. Daisy is trying to get over the abuse her ex husband caused. When Lincoln and Daisy first meet they are instantly drawn to each other. Almost like they knew the pain each other was hiding. Their friendship grew a little faster than they expected along with some feelings that caught them off guard.

Daisy was the first person he trusted with his secrets. As their relationship grows they start to push each other away, both afraid of being hurt again. What they soon realize is that they are meant to be together to fully heal their hearts.

I have read all of the Oxford series and with each book Lauren seems to pull me in just a little bit more. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next.
