I give this book 5/5 glasses of wine!
Summary: 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.”
Review: This book is a stand-alone book but it is an extension from Jewel’s Jack and Jill series which I also highly, highly recommend. One is unlike any book Jewel has written before, as far as story line goes, but it still contains the high quality writing you come to expect from Jewel. The characters are amazing and so well suited for each other. You had glimpses of them before in the Jack and Jill series but to see them blossom into their own characters is amazing.
There were several moments (more than I can count) that I literally laughed out loud but I don’t think I ever had anything other than a smile on my face. It was just a very pleasant, heart-felt book to read. There was absolutely no angst which is common in Jewel’s books. I actually kept waiting for something terrible to happen or certain somebodies to be manipulating that would bring up my anxiety level. I have to say it was pleasant to not have to take a valium during the reading marathon I was doing. And I do mean marathon. Once I really got going on the story I couldn’t put it down. And I believe I finished it about 8 hours later.
So if you need to relax a bit after reading the crazed, slightly deranged Jack and Jill series then you should pick up One. You should ABSOLUTELY read it after the Jack and Jill series though because there will be some spoilers for you if you don’t.
