So Jill Shalvis. That means... QUOTES! Lots and lots of quotes! lol I had like 20 marked but worked my way down to just 4 for today. This series is really wonderful. A set of siblings that own a ski lodge and are trying to stay above water. There's a lot of heart tugging stuff in this one but damn there are some good chuckles too...

I am so with her some mornings. lol
From somewhere nearby came the song of the morning birds, all chipper and happy, making her wish for a shotgun.
The hero and heroine had been at a charity event and she'd been dancing with one of his best friends... 
She shook her head again and looked at him, eyes clear now. "And just so we're clear, wouldn't have been so gracious about you slow dirty dancing with someone else."

"No?" he asked, finding that kernel of knowledge fascinating. And also a little hot. "What would have happened?"

"Well, for starters, I'd be appropriately grief stricken at your funeral."

He burst out laughing.
 I just liked this one. lol

"You're being cautious."

"I'm trying," she said. "Join me, won't you?"
And, serious, FOOD!!! 

Before her fingers could reach out and touch, he unzipped her sweatshirt and discovered her secret.

She had nothing on beneath.

"I was in a hurry to get food," she said in explanation.

His growl was low and appreciative as his big, warm hands slid up her bare torso and cupped her breasts. "Make my day and tell me you're completely commando," he said hoarsely, his fingers rasping over her tight and aching nipples.

"I might be--" She broke off with a gasp when in the next beat her sweatpants were at her ankles.

Note to self: maybe not quite ready for prime time with Jacob Kincaid.

"Yeah," he said, voice filled with so much heat she nearly collapsed. "You went completely commando."

"Food, Jacob! I needed food!"

Nobody But You (Cedar Ridge #3)

*sigh* There's nothing better than a Jill Shalvis hero. Well. Maybe her heroines. It's a damn close call. Nobody But You was a wonderful addition to the series. Sweet, funny, sexy, heartwarming. Shalvis weaves so many elements together for a knock out read. The only thing that could have made it better was a kitty or pup added to the mix.

The quick of it is that Jacob bailed on his family years ago after a fight with his twin brother. He joined the army and it's been nearly a decade with no contact. But a major loss in his life has him reconsidering what's important and he's come home to make amends...somehow. And on his first day back he runs into a fiery stranger who's illegally parking her boat on his dock and has a host of her own problems to deal with. Lots of sexy sparks fly and maybe, just maybe, they'll be able to help each other through all those hard parts they're facing.

I loved these two. Both Jacob and Sophie were lovely characters. Slightly damaged but fighting to get their lives back after major loss and divorce (respectively). They had that fun banter and vibe between them that's a little volatile but entertaining as hell. And the sexy bits. Yum! Yeah these two rocked some serious chemistry.

Now the drama that pulled things along. They both had a lot to overcome with the people in their lives. Her with an ex husband who was a total wanker--seriously total fucking wanker--and a family who was  less than supportive--I do wish there'd been a little more resolution with her family and how they treated her but it was okay. And Jacob with trying to make things right with his siblings--including his twin brother--after bailing on them all so many years earlier. There's a lot of hurt for them to get past and it could be frustrating and saddening in turn but seeing them get through the issues was pretty uplifting too. It was really nice seeing both of them grow so much during the book. 

All in all, sexy light hearted fun with layers that'll pull at your heart and have you cheering for these two and their happily ever after. Shalvis continues to rock the contemporary romance genre. If her name is on need it. 

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.
