Jewel does it AGAIN! Every time I'm afraid that the next book won't be as good as the last, I'm wrong every time! And it has happened yet again! You first meet Lake and Cage in the AMAZING Jack & Jill series, which by the way is a must read series! Technically this could be a standalone if you don't mind spoiling some pretty crucial parts of the J&J series. I personally would recommend to my friends to start with J&J, but some people don't mind spoilers so have at it! It's definitely worth it, Lake and Cage are worth every word!
Both Lake and Cage have gone through some pretty tough situations in their past, and they've actually met 3 years earlier and shared a sweet yet fleeting moment. So seeing each other again after all this time seems almost serendipitous, and the irony behind the situation just adds to that.
"One day. One kiss. One moment. One unforgettable memory."
The connection these two have is absolutely out of a fairy tale, the snarky prince and the stubborn princess dancing their little courtship dance. It was so sweet and heartwarming. Then you add in Jewel's signature humor, hilarious witty banter, great sexual build up and you have a perfect book! Seriously, I was laughing so hard at some parts that my stomach actually hurt and I had tears in my eyes--NO JOKE. I loved every minute of this story and in this crazy messed up world we live in, it's SO nice to be able to escape with Lake and Cage. If Jewel keeps this up I'm going to run out of room on my top reads of 2016 list. Lake is such an admirable, loveable, quirky, character and honest to a fault. She lost her leg in an accident but she doesn’t let that define who she is, she isn’t disabled and she most definitely doesn’t act that way. And Cage is just... Cage. The way he treats Lake will make you fall out of your chair, like seriously. He is so swoonworthy and everything you could ever want in a fictional daydream, he is probably one of the most thoughtful and generous male characters I've ever read and he is for sure top book boyfriend material.
I absolutely loved the journey that Lake and Cage went through, and Jewel is such a master of words, it's all of the little things that you remember while reading this story. Everything from Lake's cat, Trzy to Cage's little secret mementos, to the more than loveable side characters. Every part of this book fell into place like floating puzzle pieces finding their home, it felt so organic and I actually found myself ooooing and ahhhing out loud like a fool. Not to mention the huge smile on my face the whole time. I said it before and I’ll say it again. This book is absolute perfection and I really didn’t it want to end. I feel like I can’t adequately express how magnetic Jewel’s writing is, it’s brilliant, and captivating. And even though I felt really happy and content while reading this book, I also had tears because of the depth of emotion that was involved. If you want to feel good, or NEED to feel great, this story will do it for you.
Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.
With 10 years of flossing lectures under belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.
After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.
When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree a a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course . . .heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
