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.

Carol [Goodreads Addict]
Nobody But You is book three in the Cedar Ridge series by Jill Shalvis. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, Grand Central Publishing, and by the author.

You know, every book in this series is amazing. After each of the first two books I thought maybe that one was my favorite. After just finishing this book, I feel the same way. Wow, just wow! I just knew I was going to fall in love with Jacob…and I most certainly did.

When I picked up this book, I was in the mood for romance. A lighter romance. Nothing too over the top. Just something sweet, fun and sexy. This book was it. It was not overly sexy or overly sweet, but the perfect combination. This is the first Jill Shalvis book I’ve read, but next time I’m in the mood for a book like this, I can see her becoming the author I’d turn to.

"What are you into?"
"Slow. Long. Hard. Hot. Dirty..." His teeth sank into her earlobe. "You still in?"

Sometimes a girl just needs a sweet, light and steamy romance with a quirky heroine and a broken but swoony heroine, and this book definitely delivered! It had the feels, the swoons, and the laughs. I enjoyed every single page of it!

Famous last words…

Nobody But You gave me the warm and fuzzies...eventually…with a little heartburn, nausea and fire in the hole first. Do you know one thing that makes me smirk the most in romance novels? When both the hero and heroine start up a relationship stating that they aren’t looking for love, don’t want love or the dreaded - don’t fall for me…I’m bad news. Do you know why it makes me smirk? Because I know these suckers will be eating their words. You can’t help who you fall in love wit

I think what I love the most in contemporary romances is the heady feeling that maybe all of it could be real… And if someone can make me swoon with a sexy and fun romance, it’s definitely Jill Shalvis.

There is a place I crave when I crack open a book by this author, there is a place I’m truly looking forward to visit each time a Jill Shalvis’ lands on my e-reader, and this place is my happy place.

What can I say? Jill Shalvis has a way of taking a simple, straightforward story and turning into an engaging, funny, and sizzling hot book. Nobody But You delivered on its premise, and then some. This book is feel-good romance at its best.

I'd receieved this book thru a "book review club" where random romances are sent once a week to read and review. I don't choose them, they do. But I signed up so I tried this. Nobody But You is the type of romance just a bit too "tame" for me. Three years ago it'd be a perfect fit but my tastes have evolved. So nothing whatsoever against this book, but this is aimed more for the Nicholas Sparks or Nora Roberts type fans. I'm a bit of a darker, grittier, steamier book reader. Moving on...

First thing first, Kenna doesn't get her own story?!?

Overall, meh. Sexy, understanding, funny, and a little bit clueless hero with life falling apart, sexy, and a bit wack-a-doodle heroine. They meet-cute, lust, misunderstand, and fall in love. It's Shalvis good but oh boy is my closet overflowing with the done there t-shirts I have from this author. I hope the Heartbreaker series has a bit more individuality or spark...or Lucky Harbor Sheriff Sawyer, I can always take more Sawyer.

This book was all kinds of wonderful! I can honestly say that I loved it and was rooting for Sophie and Jacob from the very start. This story really had a little bit of everything that I like to see in a romance novel and I found myself feeling perfectly content as I turned the pages. This is the third book in the Cedar Ridge series but each book in the series works perfectly well as a stand alone novel. This is only the second book by Jill S

This is the third in a series and you really should read the others to get the whole family dynamic down. And then stop before coming to this one if you want to maintain your calm.

If we ever develop the technology to measure stupid, this book will come with a warning that only industrial-strength instruments should be used. Indeed, I could see commercials bragging that their instrument can handle evaluating this story without breaking ala "The Idiometer 9000 isn't just tough, it's Nobody-But-You

*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 an

This one was a lot of fun. I loved Sophie and Jacob. They have great chemistry and adorable banter and I thoroughly enjoyed that they were nearly inseparable.

There is a touch of angst, but it's not horrible. Sophie and Jacob both have some issues to work through and they just so supportive.

Of course there's a tiny conflict and then a lovely HEA. As always, Jill delivers a fun pick me up when I didn't know what I wanted to read.

Nobody But You may very well be my favorite book of the Cedar Ridge series by Jill Shalvis. In this 3rd book we finally get to meet the infamous Jacob Kincaid. I couldn't wait to read Jacob's story since there was so much pain, regret and guilt regarding his character in the previous books. I had such high hopes for this book and Ms. Shalvis did not let me down.

I am a huge Jill Shalvis fan, and seeing that the Cedar Ridge series, is how I discovered how much I like her writing and story-lines, I have a pretty big soft spot for it.

I have been waiting for the elusive Jacob Kinkaid to have his story told, and the author once again didn’t disappoint. As expected our leading man is paired with a strong and sassy female, but both of them are not without their own issues, that they are workin

WOW - Shalvis has outdone herself with Nobody But You! Jacob and Sophie are such great characters, even if they were both pretty closed off to the world at the beginning of the story. Sweet, tender, sexy, humourous and sometimes a little sad, I couldn't stop reading, and I loved every moment.

It seems like Shalvis has maybe saved the best for last. While I enjoyed the majority of this series, I always find that Shalvis keeps her best stories saved for the third book in every trilogy. NOBODY BUT YOU is no exception.

Everybody in Cedar Ridge was waiting for Jacob to come back. And he finally came back.

After loosing his friend Bertt in a roadside bombing and being injured, Army Special Forces officer Jacob had to come back to Cedar Ridge and fix things with his family especially his twin Hudson. When he rented a cabin beside the lake, the very last thing he had expected was a mysterious, temperamental, green-eyed cutie.

This was a fantastic story! Loved it so much! I am ridiculously happy. :-)

Jacob and Sophie were awesome characters. I loved Sophie's attitude and feistiness. Fighting to stand on her own two feet and coming to terms with her past was a great thing. Jacob was amazing! Hard but so sweet and I loved the growth that he had throughout. By the end I was smiling and teary eyed.

Jacob and Sophie together are perfect! Seriously explosive chemistry and heat between these two. Love the bickering and animosi

I love Jill Shalvis... if you don't know this about me yet, where have you been? I honestly don't know what else to say about her books! They are always witty, fun, sweet, and sexy and I can always count on her to have me smiling like a fool by the time I turn the last page.

I'll read anything she writes... and so should you!

Thank you for the early copy in exchange for my thoughts!

Nobody But You is the third book in Jill Shavlis' Cedar Ridge Series. In this book, we FINALLY get to meet Jacob Kincaid, the twin brother of Hudson Kincaid. Each book can be read as a standalone, BUT I would TOTALLY recommend this series AND Jill Shalvis in general. She is a MUST buy author for me. Seriously, I generally don't even need to read what a book is about, I just one-click it. So far, out of the Kincaid's, Aidan has been my favorite.

As soon as a Jill Shalvis book hits my kindle I have to read it and this book was no different. If you haven't started the Cedar Ridge series you are definitely missing out. It's filled with humor, emotions and some of the happily ever afters I have read.

In this book Jacob is home and is on leave but in order to make it feel like home again he has to set things right with his family. What he didn't plan on meeting was one woman who would change his whole world.

Now more than ever buddy reads are everything to me, it’s been so great being able to read some books and chat with friends and I loved reading Nobody But You with my girls @reallyintothis and @laurayaminreads All three of us loved this one and agreed it was the perfect escape. It was also hilarious, heartfelt and steamy with lots of witty banter. The more books I read by JS the more I love her style, I can’t read to read more from her backlist!

Nobody But You is my first read from author Jill Shalvis, and came recommended to me as a sweet and light read. Set in the Colorado lake town of Cedar Ridge amongst the mountains and pine trees, we are introduced to two characters who are both averse to falling in love.
