Author: Jewel E Ann
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 28th, 2016
Lake Jones is a cover girl for cutting-edge prosthetic legs, a binge-watcher of Netflix, known to spy on her neighbor through her door’s peephole, and fond of laser games with her hairless cat. She’s also a bit sexually-frustrated.
God bestows a breath of mercy upon her in the form of Minnesota’s NFL starting quarterback. But this gift is no stranger. Lake met Cage Monaghan three years earlier.
It was one day.
One kiss that resurrected her dreams of finding love.
His dimpled smile distracts from his imperfections, which include: a love for country music, fishing, and a feline-hating girlfriend.
When life finally gives them their chance, it’s a humorous and heart-wrenching journey to find their place in the world.
“We would be Cage and Lake. We would be unpredictable. We would be reckless. We would give normality the middle finger.”
***This book is a standalone. However, it is HIGHLY recommended that any readers who have not, but may consider, reading the Jack & Jill Series, do so before reading this book. It contains spoilers to Jack & Jill.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but Jewel E. Ann is undoubtedly the best author writing books right now. That is not an opinion….it’s a fact. Her Jack and Jill series was my absolute favorite read of last year. Seriously, if you haven’t read that yet…..RUN AND GRAB IT !!! (Hint the first book, End of Day ,is free right now.) So when I found out Cage and Lake were getting a book of their own (and a second chance) I was ecstatic. I was worried though….I mean I had such high expectations and I knew there wasn’t going to be as much action as there had been in the JnJ series so I had doubts. Silly stupid me. I should know better. Every Jewel E Ann book I have read has been SPECTACULAR and this is no exception.
Cage and Lake are wonderful and it is so great to get to hang out with them again. Both of them will melt your heart and then, when they are together the heat will melt your lady parts. (Can I say that?) But what makes this book extraordinary is the fact that the story is not extraordinary. These are two real people, in real life situations, facing challenges and trials and every day life and they are trying to figure out how to do it together. Funny things happen because that’s real, sad things happen because that’s how life is sometimes. They have ups and down, they have stops and starts….it’s glorious. I adored every minute of it. Cage is right up there with the best BBFs ever written but Lake? Lake is messy perfection. I loved her
As with every Jewel book, One has ALL the emotions….EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. I laughed loud, I cried hard, I swooned big time and I cheered like crazy. This book…..this book is the ONE.
