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.
Someone Like You is a DESERT ISLE KEEPER for me, and I am stingy naming my DIKs. (How many books can I really take to my island?)

It is obvious that Someone Like You was written from the very depth of Ms. Layne’s heart. She pours herself into Lincoln and Daisy and crafts a beautiful and thought provoking story that will move the most stoic of readers. Lincoln seeks to feel in control in an uncontrollable world by manipulating what people think of him. It’s a dangerous and futile game, but sometimes life is so painful that the only comfort to be found is through these small acts of pretending to be in control. Lincoln’s transformation and rebirth is enthralling, gut-wrenching and poignant, with plentiful doses of laughter and charming appearances by Layne series regulars.
Someone Like You entertains and inspires, as a well-written romance should. 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. Daisy helps Lincoln find the strength to find himself again, and – while he’ll never forget the pain he experienced – he discovers hope again, and his tale will encourage anyone who has suffered. Ms. Layne has created a truly heartfelt story that will resonate with readers and have you thinking about Lincoln and Daisy long after you’ve finished reading. – All About Romance
