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.


Sophie Marren has had enough with her ex. She left him, and took his boat. She is exhausted and incredibly seasick when she docks her boat. She is more than annoyed with she is told, more than once, to either get a permit or to move her boat. Jacob Kincaid is the man telling Sophie what to do. It is his dock in the town of Cedar Ridge and her boat does not belong there.

Jacob has just returned home after many years away. He did not leave on good terms. In fact, he and is twin brother Hudson never thought they'd speak again. Jacob is in the Army Special Forces and he has just experienced a difficult mission. Perhaps it is time for him to make matters right with his family.

One person he really must see is is mother. She has dementia and Jacob knows he needs to spend time with her. Also, Jacob has all but lost his once close bond to his twin and he is desperate to get that back. One thing Jacob does not have time for is his bone-deep attraction to this quiet, sexy woman who, for some reason, simply will not move her boat.

Nobody But You is the third book in the Cedar Ridge series by Jill Shalvis. I have fallen in love with the Kincaid family. Each story has been absolutely endearing and I love the conflicts they presented. In the case of Sophie and Jacob, they certainly had their challenges, but it was always clear that they were perfect for each other.

Although this is the first time in years I have read anything by this author, I love the "coming home" feeling that her books produce. She is extremely prolific and has written multiple series. I love keeping her books on my radar.

  1. I agree with you on how great the Coming Home trope is and I haven't read many books with it. This sounds good, heartwarming and funny all at once. Great post!
