SOMETIMES YOU CAN GO HOME AGAIN . . .
After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.
Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease-and tempt-him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other.
*I received an eARC of this title for the purpose of an honest review.*
This book is part of the Cedar Ridge series and while I think you’ll enjoy the whole series you can read this one and not feel totally lost. You will want to learn more about the town and it’s “characters” but you’ll be completely taken with Jacob and Sophie!
NOBODY BUT YOU is the story of Jacob, the long lost twin brother. Those who have read previous titles will know Jacob, but honestly if you haven’t read the series, somehow I think you’ll feel more for Jacob. I personally fell in love with Jacob. Then you have Sophie, a recently divorced woman, who’s ex is well a big jerk to be nice. You can’t help but feel for Sophie, although at times I could only laugh at the things that seem to happen to her.
When Jacob first meets Sophie sparks fly but coming from a bad relationship Sophie isn’t about to let that affect her. To bad she didn’t plan for Jacob. I found myself quickly turning pages or swiping my Kindle as it were. There’s just so much chemistry between these two you can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next. There’s more to this story than just the romance between Jacob and Sophie, you have the returning of Jacob to his family, after years of no communication. You have Sophie trying to figure out just what she wants and who she wants to be, add in Sophie’s ex and well you get a story that full. There’s more to life than just falling in love.
NOBODY BUT YOU is an excellent story. It’s well-written, engaging and full of wonderfully drawn out characters and a setting that makes you want to leave today to visit! Fans of Jill Shalvis will love this one. If you are new to Ms. Shalvis you’ll find a story that is easy and fun to read. The story is full of depth but nothing too heavy. There are some strong emotions expressed but you don’t feel overwhelmed. I highly recommend you add this one to your list of new buys today. You’ll be glad you did! A wonderful addition to anyone’s bookshelf.
