I think I've been secretly waiting for Harper and Jakob's story since Taking Shots. And I loved the format of One Timer. Harper and Jakob have been together for 20 years but now they're facing a crisis with their daughter. They decide to tell her the truth of how their relationship started. One Timer mostly runs parallel with Taking Shots and I really want to reread it now. However, it offers the perspective of Harper and Jakob on their own relationship as well as Shea and Ellie's.

Jakob falls head over heels for Harper on their first meeting. They start out as a one-night stand that doesn't end. Harper has been horribly burned in the past and is very hesitant to have a relationship. Jakob is persistent without being creepy and wears down her resistance to a relationship. What I also liked was the views into their lives later and the stress their relationship underwent when Jakob retired. One Timer was the story I always wanted for Harper and Jakob!
