Nobody But You
From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis...
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.
Shalvis writes a story that will transport you away, and White’s narration is the icing on the cake.

Jacob Kincaid discovers that the home he vowed to keep in the rear-view mirror is just the place to recover and heal, after all. After leaving Cedar Ridge as soon as he was able, joining the army and working his way up to be a Special Forces officer, a mission going pear shaped left him in crisis. Missing his army brothers and his twin, he’s not sure just what he needs from the world, so he heads home to a cabin on the lake to heal and regroup. What he never expected, or wanted, was a connection with someone else, let alone the woman living at the end of his dock.
Sophie is reeling after a divorce: now finding her own feet after an abusive and controlling husband, no money, no real home but the boat, which she hates and is constantly seasick and she’s just never going to ‘go there’ with another man again.
These two are adorable together – they both have so much to give and are the type of people you want to get to know and hang out with. While none of the story trajectory is particularly surprising, that is NEVER a hardship, because the chemistry and the banter just make you want to cheer for them to find happiness, preferably together.
Narration for this story is provided by Karen White, and she just transforms the written words with her inflections, pacing and obvious enjoyment of the story. The second of this series that I’ve reviewed, both featured her as the narrator, and I have yet to not find her performance enhancing anything she presents. Both characters were clearly presented and distinct, and there were plenty of moments and situations that were simply laugh-out-loud. Shalvis writes a story that will transport you away, and White’s narration is the icing on the cake.
I received an audiobook copy of the title from Hachette Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Nobody but you
Awesome book romance and tribute to wounded warriors
Do not miss this one!
Jill Shalvis does not disappoint. I love the third book in the Cedar Ridge series. I think it is my favorite.
Jacob and Sophie are strong, funny and perfect for each other. I don't want to give away anything about their story except it is a must read!!
