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.
Love Cedar Ridge!
Nobody But You. A Cedar Ridge Novel. Jill Shalvis
This novel takes us on another visit to Cedar Ridge and the Kincaid family. As always with a Jill Shalvis novel there is laughter, sighing and a beautiful romance. If this is your first Cedar Ridge novel prepare to fall in love with the town and the Kincaids.
Sophie Marren is tired of her glass being half empty. She is recently divorced from her rich, cheating and demeaning husband and wanted nothing from him. The judge insisted she ask for something, so she got his pleasure boat. Pleasure being the appropriate word. She has no job, no home, dwindling money and horrible motion sickness. She has been "parking" it at a dock where there is an abandoned cabin. She lives on the boat, if you can call it living. After an encounter with a "Hottie Lake Patrol" guy she has to start moving again. It costs money she doesn't have to pay to dock at a public place, and when she is docked she gets visits from her ex's side pieces to looking for him.
After a particularly bad day, hottie guy comes down to the dock to check on her. She finds out he is Jacob Kincaid, and over a four hundred dollar bottle of scotch they get to know each other.
Jacob Kincaid on leave from the Special Forces after witnessing the death of his best friend and military brother in Afghanistan. Losing him made him realize what a fool he had been to abandon his real family years ago. He is haunted by memories, an emotional empty shell, and needs to make a decision about his life in the future.
Meeting Sophie has made him feel things he hasn't for a lot of years. Trying to re establish himself in the family is proving difficult, especially with his twin Hud. He left town at eighteen, angry and resentful. He has returned, battered, broken and alone. But, Sophie is changing that.
The characters are so much fun, an amazing blended family that works and a romance that will warm your heart. This can be read as a stand alone, but the first in the series is equally charming.
I received this ARC from the publisher and NetGalley for an honest review.

My favorite of the Cedar Ridge series
I don’t think Jill Shalvis could have wrote a better story! I loved the chemistry between Sophie and Jacob, the spunk and determination that Sophie has and the quiet sexiness of Jacob. I couldn’t get enough of this book, at the same time I didn’t want it to end. I truly enjoyed this book and will read it again in the future. I’m hoping that Jill will write Kenna’s story and that Jacob and Sophie will have major part in it. I received an advanced copy for an honest review.
Love Cedar Ridge!
Jill Shalvis does it again with Nobody But You, the long awaited story that brings Jacob home to Cedar Ridge. A broken man, Jacob comes home to heal himself and his relationship with his family. But it isn't easy. The rifts run deep for all of the siblings and Jacob has to find in himself what he needs to mend the relationships. His character is very realistic, a truly alpha male who is emotionally wounded.
Enter Sophie. She is the perfect match for Jacob. She's a hot mess in the true sense of the word and there were many laugh-out-loud moments in this story. But she and Jacob are perfectly suited. She is stubborn, often to her own detriment, and that forces Jacob to work that much harder for what he wants. She's a wonderfully-strong woman who is digging herself out from some life-changing struggles, which leaves her vulnerable to Jacob's advances. Neither is looking for something permanent, but we all know how that works out. The struggle is real and we the reader struggle along with Jacob and Sophie as they fight for their happily-ever-after.
