REVIEW – NOBODY BUT YOU (Cedar Ridge, #3) by Jill Shalvis




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.

Jacob Kincaid is an army special forces officer. After a mission goes wrong, he decides to take leave & head home to Cedar Ridge, Colorado. He wants peace & quiet and the comfort of family. The only problem is Jacob walked away from his family when he was 18, & hadn’t been back home since. He wants to make things right with his family, & he plans to start making amends first with his twin brother Hud. Jacob’s family lives in a small tourist ski town & they own the ski resort there. While he gets settled back into town, Jacob rents a small cabin on the lake just outside of town. His first day back in Cedar Ridge he has a run-in with a stunning, feisty redhead who manages to distract him from his own issues & makes him smile. This beautiful woman’s name is Sophie Marren. She’s recently divorced & is living on a boat on Cedar Ridge lake right in front of Jacob’s new dock. Sophie is trying to get her life back on track, but is a hot mess. She is quickly realizing taking he ex’s boat as payback is slowly just punishing her. Jacob & Sophie clash & connect, & sparks fly. She finds him hot as hell& he makes her feel sexy & wanted.


-“I’m really pretty vanilla.”

-“One of my favorite flavors,” he murmured.

-She was funny and light and…the highlight of his entire day.

Jacob & Sophie finally give in to their cravings for one another. It’s explosive & oh so delicious! Neither plans to let emotions or feelings get involved, but that doesn’t work out so well when they begin falling for each other. Suddenly Jacob wants more than a physical relationship & Sophie is scared after her last experience with her ex. They have to decide if they are going to take that leap for love, & at the same time deal with Jacob’s leave from the army coming to an end. I really loved this book! Jacob is so damn hot!!! Lol, I was swooning & giggling throughout. One of my favs by this author, & I’ve read most of her books.

-“You’ve wrecked me.”

-“I’m all yours.”
