Genre: New Adult, Romance, Sports
Pre-Order Available on:
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.” ***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.
Five Boundless Stars
One unforgettable memory.”
One, is one of the greatest love stories I’ve read. It’s a Romantic Comedy but its so much more than that. It’s everything.
I never expected that Lake and Cage’s story would continue. I’m thankful Jewel gave this piece of them. They met by chance on the search for Jessica/Jillian. But they knew in that moment.. That it was fate, destiny, whatever you wanna call it. They were meant for each other.
Both have experienced some form of a tragedy. Lake losing a part of her self in a tragic accident, she couldn’t control. Cage losing a part of himself, after his father passed. But they didn’t let it define them. They were both in their own ways survivors.
I loved Lake and Cage. They are by far two of my favorite characters. And it’s impossible not to love them, for all that they are.
Jewel’s writing really had me in awe. I’ve read many of her books and I feel that with every book, she just gets better and better.
