Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis

From Forever Romance/Grand Central:


After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.

Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She's broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I'm-too-sexy-for-myself guy who's now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob's dark intensity makes her want to tease-and tempt-him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other.

Nobody But You is classic Jill Shalvis, combining hilarious hijinx with heart.  Jacob's journey seeking home, acceptance and forgiveness is set against the beautifully imagined Cedar Ridge, Colorado.  Jacob is the long lost twin of Hudson Kincaid, who we met in My Kind of Wonderful.  Hud and Jacob had a big fight at eighteen and Jacob took off and joined the Army, not to be heard from again for nine years.  The reunion is anything but smooth and in true Kincaid fashion, Jacob is given hell.  The Kincaid family is a hilarious hot mess and I love them so much.  

He's also given hell by Sophie, the crazy heroine of our story, who is recently divorced and living on her ex-husband's boat out of spite.  Their story is sweet and sexy, but it's Jacob's journey that is poignant and inspiring.  It's a journey of self-discovery, forgiveness, grief and love that made me laugh and cry.  

You should definitely pick up Nobody But You so that you can love Jacob Kincaid as much as I do.  We can fight over our newest book boyfriend for hours.  :-)
