When I read my first book by Jewel E. Ann two years ago, I immediately knew she would be my favorite author.

This book once again proves that Jewel E. Ann is a truly remarkable author, one of the best in the contemporary romance genre.

With each book she releases, my love for her exceptional writing, unique storylines, dry humor and beautiful characters amplifies. She’s one of those authors you want to read again and again.

I honestly thought no couple could top Jessica and Luke, but Lake and Cag

➦This book has everything I could ever want in a romantic comedy - lots of humor, some angst and a bit of steam! The main characters are just so stinkin' cute! And don't get me started on the supporting characters. I hope Flint's book is in the works already, that's all I'm gonna say.

"Cage Monahan was the reason my life was spared. I didn’t know how I knew it… I just did.”


Though this story can be read as a standalone, fans of this author’s Jack and Jill series will adore this funny, sexy and heartfelt story. Lake Jones is Dr. Luke Jones’ sister who helped him search for Jessica Day in the Jack and Jill series. Fans of that series will remember the attraction and connection she shared with Cage Monahan in that brief encounter three years ago.

***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.

Well, it's official now. I'm seriously addicted Jewel E. Ann's books!!! :D Story, chemisty and the humor between Cage & Lake was soooooo good! And my god, I love Jewel's strong female characters very much. They are so different, unique and oh they're also very chatty! 😁 Btw I almost for

Cage Monaghan ... sigh ... I'll get back to him in a minute.

One is a spinoff/standalone to the Jack & Jill Series (End of Day, Middle of Knight, Dawn of Forever). However, there are LOTS of spoilers to the series, so I recommend you read J&J first if you haven't, but would ever consider reading it. And if I'm honest—I really think you should read the series. ;)

Has there ever been a more perfect couple? I don't think so. I adored these beautiful people. It takes a lot to be put on the perfect couple list and these two made it.

Oh how I loved this book, let me count the ways.

I love how this book made me feel when I was reading it. It made me so freaking giddy and excited. I literally texted my bestie all day to tell her how much I was loving reading this book. It reminded me why I love reading, the escape and happiness reading provides. I didn’t think about anything I had going on, I fell completely into Lake and Cage’s world.

I love how this book made me fall in love. Lake Jones is a FANTASTIC character, fantastic! Sh

After reading the emotionally challenging but absolutely sublime Jack and Jill series by this author I was thrilled to start this spinoff book and discover how wonderful reading this simply adorable, funny and very romantic book made me feel.
It was pure reading pleasure, I smiled, I laughed, I swooned and I really wanted all those feelings to last.
I also couldn't say whom I loved more: Cage or Lake (favorite couple-oh yes!!).

Lake was such a strong and courageous woman. Fiercely

When this popped up on my Kindle on release day, I frantically went to the back of the book for the bonus Epilogue Jewel promised/teased! OMG!!! Seriously, I didn't think it could get any better! THANK YOU!!!!

And now I have a question, a plea, a beg...any chance of a story for Flint? PLEASE!

I'm giving this one a second chance.

I feel like I didn't appreciate it the first time around. My book hangover after I read and loved Look The Part was just too hard to overcome.

Now after some distance I'm in the right mood for some new Jewel E Ann.
Wish me luck!! So far so good....

Jewel E Ann writes THE most swooniest heroes, I absolutely adored Cage Monohan, and his love interest Lake Jones. ❤️

This is a spin-off from one of my favourite trilogies of all time The Jack & Jill Series which features the two main characters in One. One can however be read as a standalone, but you will get spoilers from the trilogy, and if you are planning to read that, then I suggest reading in order.

One is an endearingly funny spin-off story from the Jack and Jill series. We met Lake and Cage in Jack and Jill and that series provides a nice backstory for both of them. Though this book can be read as a standalone, if there's a chance at all you plan to read Jack and Jill (which I highly recommend because it's that awesome), I'd read that trilogy first as this book contains huge spoilers for that series. That being said...

This book was pure humor from page one until the end! Loved the comedy, dual POVs, hilarious chapter titles, and that great ending. The dialogue was too cutesy in most areas but this was an enjoyable story.
The best book I read this year. I took it with me for the holidays and the choice could not be better. It is my first book of the author, and she totally blow my mind. I fell in love with the characters on first page and it was better and better. Just amazing reading which you can recommend to everyone. I will write full review when I get home, but you do not wasting your time, read it right now.

‘Best decision of your life, buddy.’

My favorite Jewel's book so far. Cage and Lake were a perfect fit, he was so dreamy, understanding and he loved Lake with his whole heart. I loved Lake's spirit, humour, the way she lives her life and I was maybe a little bit jealous of her job because as sad as it was, it was badass-y.

F*@k gravity, it’s time to fall in love with Jewel E. Ann and the magic she created with Lake and Cage. One of my top reads of 2016 BY FAR! Sweet, sexy, powerful, and inspiring. If I could add more adjectives without sounding like a true moron, I would.

One is labeled a standalone, however, to truly appreciate this story of love, recovery, and forward motion you MUST have read the Jack & Jill series beforehand. Fans of the previous books are in for a massive treat. I haven’

This book was pretty spectacular! Lake Jones is an amputee, but it doesn't define her. She's smart, snarky, and a devoted Netflix girl. She's super confident with a few pockets of vulnerability. I absolutely adored her. She had a life changing accident, but she grew stronger. She Lived for every moment, especially the moment she met Cage. He was a moment in time. They met when they were both mired in grief. There was a spark, but they didn't meet again for 3 years. In a coincidence brou

“One is enough. It’s unique. It’s a chance, an opportunity, an experience. One is never greedy. One is independent. One can change everything.”
In my mind, humor and angst go hand in hand with Jewel E. Ann’s books. One is a bit of a departure for her. It’s a sports romance that has all the wit, but none of the gut wrenching, anxiety producing conflicts I’ve come to expect. This book proves that Jewel can write lighthearted romantic comedy very well while maintaining an extremely touch

There is nothing, and I mean, nothing I don’t like about this book. You hear? Nothing!

I totally HEART everything about Cage!!!!

I’ve met Cage and Lake in the Jack & Jill series, back when they were young uns. Cage has my attention even then. Lake, well, she did too, but not always in a positive light. What can I say, the bratty sis role in some of the scenes got the best of me, but I got it, no biggie.

Before reading One I strongly suggest that you read the Jack & Jill series. It's a must! Because of the story and the fabulous characters. You will love One even more. I sure as hell did. I fell in love with the characters

While One can be read as a standalone if you do intend to read the Jack & Jill series by this author please note that there are spoilers for that series contained within. One is very different from the Jack & Jill series, while that series was steeped in mystery this one was more akin to a RomCom, probably not intended, but the banter between our hero and heroine will have you smiling from ear to ear and lau
