When Jacob was injured in the war, it changed him for life. Now all he wants to do is come home to Cedar Ridge, settle in at his lakeside cabin and get some much-needed peace and quiet. But there’s no peace to be had when he finds a spitfire of a woman camping out on his property. Half the time he’s not sure whether he wants to spank her or kiss–or maybe both. He’s in a dark place and a dark mood, and here’s this wildly hot woman who is also funny and light and may be the balm be needs to soothe his aching soul.
Sophie Marren is pretty much penniless after leaving her abusive husband. She doesn’t have the money to pay rent or the slip fees for docking the boat where she’s been sleeping. She was getting along just perfectly until the good-looking, brooding, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy moves into the lake cabin that the slip belongs to. Sure he’s hot as the noon sun with those dark lens and even darker ‘tude, but god forbid she tie herself to another man who’s always telling her what to do. But the more she gets to know Jacob, the more she sees how willing he is to battle for her wounded heart…a battle she might just let him win.




All a scorned woman needs in this life is her belittling, philandering ex-husband’s boat, right? Ok, maybe not. But in the case of Sophie Marren, that’s all she has. In a moment of vengeance his prize possession seemed worthy compensation for his years of undermining and neglect.

Now with a lack of prospects, funds and a place to moor the ruddy thing, her life is anything but smooth sailing.

For those who have read My Kind of Wonderful, you’ll remember Jacob Kincaid as the prodigal twin brother to Hud. He has been serving in the Army Special Forces and his return to Cedar Ridge coincides with the failure of an army mission. It’s time for him to make amends with his family, which is some ways is the biggest battle he has ever faced.

His solitude is disturbed when he discovers Sophie and her illegally moored boat. Rather than be put out by her, he is instantly smitten and with her effervescent personality it’s easy to see why. As much as men are the last thing on her mind, Sophie can’t help but be attracted to her brooding neighbour. The chemistry between these two is instantaneous and their banter pleasure to read. Jacob becomes a strong and encouraging presence in Sophie’s life, no matter much she is reluctant to depend on anyone other than herself.

This is the second occasion I’ve read a Jill Shalvis novel, and much like the first, she’s writes in such a wonderful way, it feels as though I’ve been doing it forever.

Nobody But You is a  sweet, sexy read with oodles of personality. I laughed and giggled my whole way through this. Along with the laughter was a heartwarming story of a man and woman wading the tide for their second chance. A must read for fans of contemporary romance.
