ISBN 978-1455586806


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.

What I thought about Nobody But You

I've been waiting for Jacob, the missing Kincaid brother to come back to Cedar Ridge.  Hud has just been a mess over him being gone and with good reason.  One of the things I love about this series is the closeness of these siblings.  Their banter and teasing has been the cornerstone of this series for me.

In Nobody But You, the action revolves around Jacob and Sophie.  Sophie's enduring the final stages of divorce, and she's attempting to find her new way in life, determined to not make the same mistakes again.  When Jacob comes into her life, she's constantly trying to figure out how far she can go with him and not repeat history.  She's not the most trusting  heroine and with good reason.

I really loved Jacob.  He's down to earth and willing to give Sophie the time she needs. He's trying to get things on better ground with his twin brother,Hud. But he's not having much success on all three counts, at least he doesn't think so.

I missed the friendly banter between all the brothers, their wives, girlfriends and sister in Nobody But You. They've got some serious stuff to resolve and there's not much time for fun. The dialogue here mostly involves Hud, Kenna, Jacob and Sophie and I missed the rest of the family.  

This is a great series.  It's an easy, pleasurable read with just the right amount of drama, and plenty of love.  Recommended.
