Nobody But You (Cedar Ridge #3)
Forever / March 29, 2016 / $7.99 print and digital
Opening a Jill Shalvis novel for me is like going out to girls' night with good friends. You know you're going to have a few laughs, but you're going to end up thinking about some more serious stuff, too. Nobody But You is no exception.
This is the third book in the Cedar Ridge series and while I'm a huge fan of Shalvis's, I had missed the first two books in the series. Luckily, all the books stand alone, so even if you haven't read the others you'll be fine visiting Cedar Ridge for the first time with this book.
Sophie Marren is the kind of hapless heroine who ends up living on her ex-husband's boat—which she took in the divorce because it was the only thing he cared about—even though she is prone to seasickness.
From her vantage point, she could see the impressive Rocky mountains shooting straight up to the limitless, shocking azure sky marred only by a single white fluffy cloud that resembled a pile of marshmallows
Her stomach, normally in love with marshmallows, turned over again.
This is our—and not coincidentally our hero Jacob Kincaid's—first view of Sophie. Later, not even at this point, she pukes on his shoes. It's not an auspicious beginning to a relationship.
