One by Jewel E. Ann
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.
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 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.
"My mouth said thank you, but my heart said I love you."
Jewel E Ann hits it out of the park again with One. This can be read as a standalone, but if you plan on ever reading the Jack & Jill series, you should read it before reading One because there are some spoilers.
Lake Jones lost a leg in a car accident, but that wasn't the worst part. She lost her love. She lived, and Ben died. While she was grieving, she met Cage when she was traveling with her brother. She couldn't give him any information about herself, but she comforted Cage while he was grieving the death of his father.
It was one moment. It was one lasting memory.
Years later, Lake moves to Minnesota to start a new life. She didn't know that Cage was Minnesota’s NFL starting quarterback because she doesn't follow football.
The story about Lake and Cage is refreshing, funny, and absolutely adorable. This wasn't a tear jerker, but it definitely gave me the feels. I can't wait to see what Jewel E. Ann cooks up next!
