When Jacob was injured in the war, it changed him for life. Now all he wants to do is come home to Cedar Ridge, settle in at his lakeside cabin and get some much-needed peace and quiet. But there’s no peace to be had when he finds a spitfire of a woman camping out on his property. Half the time he’s not sure whether he wants to spank her or kiss–or maybe both. He’s in a dark place and a dark mood, and here’s this wildly hot woman who is also funny and light and may be the balm be needs to soothe his aching soul.
 
Sophie Marren is pretty much penniless after leaving her abusive husband. She doesn’t have the money to pay rent or the slip fees for docking the boat where she’s been sleeping. She was getting along just perfectly until the good-looking, brooding, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy moves into the lake cabin that the slip belongs to. Sure he’s hot as the noon sun with those dark lens and even darker ‘tude, but god forbid she tie herself to another man who’s always telling her what to do. But the more she gets to know Jacob, the more she sees how willing he is to battle for her wounded heart…a battle she might just let him win.

MY THOUGHTS

I always think that Shalvis will write a book that doesn’t wow me.  She still hasn’t done it.  Even though there is a basic formula, couple meets, has some sort of distress, outside forces pushing them away from each other and finally to the HEA, they never fail to be awesome reads.  It is definitely how she writes, the words she uses and how the characters are not all cookie-cutters.  The dialogue is always full of spark and wit.  I am picky about that how characters interact and speak to each other.

“Nothing,” she said. “It’s just that I’m trying to make better choices.”

“Of which I wouldn’t be one.”

“It’s not necessarily your fault,” she said. “It’s that you’re a man.”

“Guilty as charged.”

 

This little chat between Jacobs, away from Cedar Ridge in the military with Sophie, just over a heartbreak, is firey (red- hair, of course), just starts the beginning of this relationship.  This story is easily a stand alone in the series and covers the Kincaid family’s resort. My favorite part is Sophie living on her ex’s boat which make her sick and seasick.  The fact that both Jacob and Sophie can recover from their heartache with each other is just perfect.
