Title: One Author: Jewel E Ann Genre: Romantic Comedy Release Date: July 28th, 2016
Synopsis: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. Until … 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 is a beautiful and emotional love story that is about 2nd chances with your true love when you think love has “leave the building”. One is a spinoff/standalone to the Jack & Jill Series. Its hard to go into this without giving a lot of the previous series away (spoilers!) But what I can say is that this is Lake and Cage’s story.
Lake Jones is a sassy and independent cuss of a female who is living with a below-the-knee amputation. She always now tries to find the rainbow in her day since her life hasn’t been the brightest of recent. She has a habit of peeping in on her neighbors and adores Netflix. She is a cover model and test subject for new high-tech prosthetics . She tries to live her life to the fullest .
Cage Monaghan is a famous rookie NFL quarterback who has women coming out of the woodwork and doesn’t need any entanglements until he comes face to face with someone from his past. Lake and he had a brief moment in time , a hot moment and that was it until they reconnected at a teammate’s party and BOOM, they are back in each other’s life, good or bad, as it may be. He's got his second chance and he's going to take it before she disappears out of his life again.
This story will make you laugh, make you cry, make you think—Lake is a survivor and she is someone I rooted for in this story to find her HEA. I found Cage to be perfect for her, he was someone who could get her, see her and understand her. Not to say that they didn’t have their ups and downs but they got each other. Fans of the amazing Jack & Jill trilogy will love the appearance of past characters but do know One is a standalone spinoff and maybe we will see supporting characters in this book get their own in follow ups- that would be lovely.
My rating: 4.5 stars ****
