full description

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.

“This is why so many of us read romances, aside from the the assurance of a happily ever after for the characters. We want to see love allowing someone to abandon their defenses and be their most unfiltered self and still feel acceptance.”

Excerpt from Someone Like You


Lincoln opened the closet door and pulled out her pink dress.

“I hung it up!” she said in surprise.

He lifted a teasing eyebrow.

“Or you hung it up,” she amended, fresh embarrassment running anew. 

“If it makes you feel better, I turned my back while you stripteased your way out it.”

Daisy let out a horrified laugh. “I did not.” 

“I can’t say for sure, what with my back turned and all, but there was quite a bit of humming of what seemed to be Britney Spears.”

Daisy groaned into the coffee. “If this mug were bigger, I’d try to drown myself.”

“If it makes you feel any better, Wallflower,” he said, laying the dress across the foot of the bed, “I slept on the couch.”

“Before or after we . . .”

“After we did not,” he said with a wink.
