REVIEW: One by Jewel E Ann

CoverOne copy

Title: One Author: Jewel E Ann 

Genre: Romantic Comedy 

Release Date: July 28th, 2016



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.

There is nothing, and I mean, nothing I don’t like about this book. You hear? Nothing!

What a total swoonfest!!!

I totally HEART everything about Cage!!!!

I’ve met Cage and Lake in the Jack & Jill series, back when they were young uns. Cage has my attention even then. Lake, well, she did too, but not always in a positive light. What can I say, the bratty sis role in some of the scenes got the best of me, but I got it, no biggie. 

And now, it’s their moment to shine, and shine they did!
Lake cracks me up with her thoughts and lingo. I love her lack of filter, her vulnerability, her humor, her compassion and her strength.

Cage, now him, I can keep going! #SWOON One of the best grand gesture and proposal as far as I’m concerned! #SWOON He’s so grounded despite his status. He’s a total sweetheart. He’s funny. He’s thoughtful. He’s adorable in a manly way. And he’s sexy as hell.

"Give me you. Give me every tear. Give me every breath. Give me every fear. Give me every touch. Give me every smile. Give me every day."... "... give me forever. Give me the one thing I cannot live without..."... give me you."

I love how their relationship blossomed in the most endearing way. I’ve practically highlighted every sweet moments they have. It’s the stuff of fairy tale in a grounded way, if that makes sense. It’s like every Nicholas Sparks’ movies (I haven’t read any of his books) done the Jewel way. I can’t even fully explain their story as a whole affected me. I felt the sincerity in every line. The lines grabbed me and just wrapped itself around me in an embrace. The emotions that flowed between Cage and Lake dug itself in my psyche and reminded me what good relationships are about- the highs, the lows, and the middle grounds that make it worth while and enriching.

“Don’t forget to love me.”


I love how all the characters enhance the story, and I mean all the characters. Not sure how Jewel does it but each character is layered even when they’re just on the periphery. I love how I saw familiar names. I love how the new ones I was introduced to intrigued me (hint-hint). 

Jewel is such a dynamic writer. From the first book of hers that I grabbed (Only Trick), it hit me that here’s an author who thinks outside the box. The nuances she imbues on her stories and characters guarantee you that each of her characters will bring something unique to the table and each of her stories will take you on a ride that you won’t quite expect. And I love her for that!

On a more personal note, I do have to thank Jewel as I read this during a short visit to the hospital and it was the perfect distraction that I needed. Mwah!

Now on to savor all these warm fuzzy feelings… and looking forward to reading the bonus epilogue:D
