Title: One Author: Jewel E Ann Genre: Romantic Comedy Release Date: July 28th, 2016
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.
Fuck Gravity, I started falling when I opened this book, and never stopped. Falling for Cage, falling for Lake, and falling head over heels with Jewel E. Ann over and over and over again. Her writing is beautiful, it addicting, is inspiring and liberating, its fucking heartbreaking, and exciting, hilarious and SEXY. AS. FUCK.
“Lets never be in love. Lets fall every day without ever touching the ground…FUCK GRAVITY.”
Before you one-click this book, kiss your other book boyfriends goodbye, and tell them you love them,because once you meet Cage Monaghan, and his hypnotizing dimples… well there’s just no going back, and Cage does NOT share.
We met Lake & Cage in Jewel E. Ann’s Jack & Jill series. They both had small parts but well fell quite hard for them right off the bat. In the series the two of them meet and they share “One Day, One Everything.” …sigh even though Lake & Cage played such a small part in the big picture that was the J&J series, their story just jumped off of the page and touched my heart. I knew instantly that I wanted to know SO much more about them, and that there was SO MUCH MORE to their story. And Oh My Gosh was I right. This story is EPIC! Not for the faint of heart.
“This is it. This is where you sink or swim. This is where the survivors are separated from the victims.”
Lake is a fucking warrior. She’s my hero and she’s my bookgirlfriend for life. She’s fun and feisty. She’s wild and brave. She’s got layers, and so does Cage. I love that she refers to him as the Man of her Dreams from the first chapter… like there was never any question. And there simply wasn’t.
“Losing my leg was easy compared to losing my heart to Cage, even if I did willingly hand it to him.”
Jewel is a poet, she writes these words that are like a siren song to my soul and I feel every single one of them. The Jack & Jill series is a romance-suspense, however ONE had me turning pages just as fast, had my heart beating out of my chest just the same. I felt that fire, that passion that need for more more more and she delivered, oh man, she delivered.
…I mean who else could write something as poetic as:
“…blah, blah, blah, I wanted to be his.”
Haha! Just kidding but I do love the quote that that’s part of so much here it is: “Independent woman, I belonged to no man, blah, blah, blah, I wanted to be his. The desire to find on e guy that made me want to wave my white flag lived in the non-feminist part of my brain. Cage was white flag worthy.”
…I just can’t even find the words, all I can do is tell you from the bottom of my little blogger heart, how much I truly LOVED this book.
If you haven’t read the Jack & Jill series.. R E A D I T. Its brilliant, suspenseful, sexy, funny, its everything. If you’re still reading this, then I think / hope its because you’ve put your faith in me as a blogger, you know I wouldn’t lead you wrong. You CAN read this amazing book as a standalone, it will be just as brilliant but there are so many spoilers for the J&J series, you’d be doing yourself a disservice, so first do yourself a favor and: ONE-CLICK End of Day (Jack & Jill Book 1) for FREE!!!
