Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis

Book Description

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.

Nobody But You is the third book in Jill Shavlis' Cedar Ridge Series.  In this book, we FINALLY get to meet Jacob Kincaid, the twin brother of Hudson Kincaid.  Each book can be read as a standalone, BUT I would TOTALLY recommend this series AND Jill Shalvis in general.  She is a MUST buy author for me.  Seriously, I generally don't even need to read what a book is about, I just one-click it.  So far, out of the Kincaid's, Aidan has been my favorite.  You know, you always have your favorite out of a series, even if you LOVE the series.  And out of the two previous books, Aidan has been my favorite.... BUT I think Mr. Jacob Kincaid took my #1 spot.  

10 years ago, Jacob Kincaid wanted nothing more than to leave Cider Ridge, Colorado with his twin brother, Hudson, and never look back.  And while Jacob followed through with their plans, Hudson did not and they haven't been able to bridge that gap in those 10 years.  Jacob doesn't feel that he can really return home, but after losing a brother-in-arms, Jacob feels that it is time to try with this siblings.  So he returns back to Cider Ridge leasing a cabin about 10 minutes away from his family's resort, but doesn't let his siblings know that he is home right away.  He just wants time alone to figure out how to approach his family.  But that solitude flies out the door when he discovers a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.

 Sophie Marren is broke, seasick, and pissed of at men in general.  All three are the fault of her slimy ex-husband.  He took her money and got her fired from her job, so she took the only thing that mattered to him during their marriage: his boat.  With no where else to go and no money to go anywhere (even if she wanted to), she has been docking her boat at an empty cabin, or so she thought.  But Sophie soon realizes that "her dock" isn't empty and soon comes face-to-face with sexy Jacob Kincaid.

The attraction between Sophie and Jacob can't be denied, but neither are really looking for any sort of relationship.  But quickly, Jacob comes to realize that their is something special about Sophie, Cedar Ridge, and having a relationship with his family again.  But he needs to have patience to so them that while he may have to leave again (military life), he has every intention of coming home again.

This book was perfection for me.  The story between Jacob and Sophie was incredibly sweet, sexy, funny, and heartbreaking all in one.  And like the previous two stories, the dynamics between the Kincaids makes me wish I wan't an only child.  I am completely and totally in LOVE with the Kincaid family.  So again, if you haven't read this series from the beginning, I would TOTALLY start with Second Chance Summer and really get to know this AMAZING family. 

RATING: 5 out of 5
