NOBODY BUT YOU is another wondrous Jill Shalvis story
about people with flaws, and people who will win
your heart. NOBODY BUT YOU is book 3 in the Cedar
series. But once again Shalvis has concocted a
rambunctiously endearing story that captures your
attention and holds tight. As the story continues you
come to realize this is anything but irreverent. It's
lovely and enticing. NOBODY BUT YOU is another winning
episode centering on the people of Cedar Ridge.
Sophie Marren is royally pissed at her ex-husband. So
when it comes time to divide the goods in their divorce
she takes the one thing her husband loves above all else.
His boat. Sure at one point Sophie had dreams that she
would take that place in her ex's life and heart. But she
is now a realist. The boat named after himself is the one
thing that would matter. Lucas didn't just break up a
marriage but in addition he put quite a kibosh on
So that's how Sophie wound up living on the darn boat.
Several problems with living on a boat. And as time goes
on Sophie becomes glaringly aware of how perhaps
shortsighted she was in choosing this as her demand.
Kind of funny how Sophie Marren meets Jacob Kincaid. She
her boat at his dock. The cabin Jacob is staying in has
been vacant for a long time. No one would notice her
boat. Well that's what Sophie thought.
Jacob returns home to Cedar Ridge to recover and finds
himself quite entertained by this strange woman who
randomly docks by his cabin. It is readily apparent
she is having issues, and somehow Jacob winds up enmeshed
in Sophie's life. The more Jacob gets to know this
somewhat mess of a woman the more she steals his heart.
Jacob had thought the best way to recover after returning
from his tour of duty was in a private subdued manner. As
it turns out living in the cabin by the lake is anything
but—but in a very good way.
Every book in the Cedar Ridge is amazing in its own
The stories abound with endearing characters, and the
dialog is spot on and funny. I'm talking laugh out loud
funny—so be prepared to get strange looks if you are
public. Just saying. Jill Shalvis is one of the premier
contemporary authors who never fails to entertain with
her sassy bright tales. NOBODY BUT YOU is the latest in
this talented writer's repertoire.
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.
