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 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.
One begins when Lake gets a new neighbor. He's huge and she's super nosy. But, one night when she's on her way out she has a chance meeting with the friend's of her neighbor. The problem is she sees the man she never thought she would ever see again, Cage. After talking to him, and learning more about him, she knows she can't stay away. And he wants more of her as well.
But, these two will have a lot of obstacles like their jobs, being in the spotlight, friends and family as well coming in between them. Cage and Lake aren't going to let that stand in the way of what they feel for each other. They will fight till the end for what they want.
I went into this book not knowing anything about this author's writing style or anything about the previous books written by this author either. And, I thought this book was really good! It blew me away with the heroine's awkward humor and personality. She was amazing and I utterly adored her.
Then, Cage, the hero, seemed "normal" but he really wasn't either. And he loved the heroine beyond anything imaginable. They have a beautiful relationship that was really interesting to read about and watch the journey unfold.
The only thing I didn't really like about the book was it went by too quickly. And there were two instances that happened in the story that the hero and heroine didn't discuss with each other and it felt like it had no real impact on the story at all, so I felt they were sort of pointless to it.
I'm looking forward to reading more of this author's books now!
