Nobody But You

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 Ridge 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 Sophie's career.

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 has docked 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 way. 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 in 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.

SUMMARY

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.
