REVIEW – ONE by Jewel E. Ann

CoverOne copy


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.

Until …

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 moment.
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 love our story. I love it so much because in every chapter you make me fall in love with you all over again. Let’s never be in love. Let’s fall every day without ever touching the ground.”
“Fuck gravity.”


Jewel E Ann became one of my MUST READ authors since I read Undeniably You last year. Her writing is intoxicating. She has created some of the most incredible book boyfriends that not many can rival. ONE is a spin-off of the ”Jack & Jill”series. The main characters met in Dawn of Forever and the little scene that they share definitely had us readers wanting more of Cage and Lake’s story! Well, all I can say is that you will not be disappointed with the journey Jewel takes these two characters on. I find myself still sighing over all things Cage Monaghan.


Lake Jones, little sister of Luke from the ”Jack & Jill” series has recently moved to Minnesota, with her hairless cat, Trzy. She needed to start fresh somewhere that didn’t have all the painful reminders of her past life before the tragic car accident that resulted in the death of her fiancé and the loss of her leg. She works as a tester of prosthetic legs for the scientist that creates them. For the most part, she’s happy with her life, but she’s been going through a long dry spell in the romance department. Lake still mourns the loss of her fiancé, but she also hasn’t been able to forget the man she met three years ago while on a mission to help her brother, Luke, find his fiancé, Jessica. Although they only spent a couple hours together, it left a lasting impact on Lake. Cage was able to take up space in her heart and she found it impossible to let him go.

Luckily for Lake, her newest neighbor happens to be a Pro-NFL player for the Minnesota King’s and during a house party, she comes face to face with the man who’s been the focus of all her fantasies, Cage Monaghan. Cage is currently the new Quarterback for the Minnesota King’s and his performance on the field is guaranteeing a Super Bowl win. When they bump into each other, there’s no denying the attraction is still quite strong between them.

For me, it was Cage who made this book amazing. I did love the moments spent with their families, especially with Luke & Jessica, but for the most part, it was Cage that stole my heart! His love for Lake seemed limitless. I loved that he never saw her disability as a flaw and that Lake was complete perfection in his eyes. Even his jealous tendencies were adorable to me.

Lake’s vulnerability, for the most part, was endearing. I did love her ability to laugh in the face of adversity and also her tender side. Her scenes with little Shayna really tugged at the heartstrings.

The romance between the two almost seems like it’s insta-love, but you have to remember Cage and Lake met years ago and that it only took a few hours to develop a strong attraction towards each other. The love between Cage and Lake is beyond intense. I was almost surprised at how for the most part the story seemed to be very low on drama. But then we get to the 90% mark and I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest!! I couldn’t breathe!!! This was going to make or break my love for this book!!! Jewel really knows how to literally pull the rug out from under you and nearly drive you to drink!! I do enjoy books that torture me a bit because if everything flows too easily in a story without any major conflict involved, I tend to lose interest quickly.

ONE is a standalone, but if you haven’t read the ”Jack & Jill’series, I highly recommend that you do. For starters, it was an AMAZING series and most importantly, Lake and Cage meet in the third book and you’ll want to experience that part of their history. You’ll understand why this book had to be written.

ONE is available now. Be sure to one-click!!
