Synopsis: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.
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 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.”
***This book is a standalone. However, it is HIGHLY recommended that any readers who have not, but may consider, reading the Jack & Jill Series, do so before reading this book. It contains spoilers to Jack & Jill.
What I thought about One
I always have a hard time writing a review for a book that I loved. It seems harder for some reason.
One is the story of Cage and Lake, two characters that were introduced briefly during the Jack and Jill series. Now I loved that series hard, and I think that Jewel E. Ann writes a witty, tangled love story, so loving Cage and Lake wasn't a stretch.
In this second chance romance, Lake just happens to be living across the hall from one of Cage's teammates, and it doesn't take long for them to reconnect. Lake is one interesting character and for me, her learning to live with the loss of the leg was secondary to her guilt over the way she lost it. That made her interesting, and I adored her sense of humor. She jumped off the page for me and I couldn't get enough.
Cage makes a great book boyfriend, and he does some really lovely things for Lake. Together they had me smiling. I liked that this book was a bit lighter than the Jack and Jill series because it showed off Jewel E. Ann's sense of humor. It's what makes me want to jump on her books as soon as they are released!
So, basically I loved this. There's humor, there's romance, great secondary characters and it left me smiling.
