One crazy dog—one awkward vet—one naked pool guy—and one life-changing month in California to make friends, fall in love, and twist fate.

Who gets paid to walk a dog and recline by the pool all day? Sydney Montgomery, aspiring museum curator and professional house-sitter, that’s who.

When her aunt and uncle need a house and dog sitter for thirty days in Palo Alto, Sydney can’t turn down the chance to be closer to her sister in L.A. Within twenty-four hours of her arrival, Sydney’s cleaning up runny dog poo, taking an uncooperative pooch to a handsome yet awkward vet, and being rescued from the bottom of the pool by a naked “pool guy.”

Lautner, “pool guy,” has a hot body and a cool persona. With eyes of iridescent blue oceans, he is mesmerizing, sexy, and addictive. What he is not—the pool guy.

Dr. Lautner Sullivan is a college wide receiver turned pediatric resident. He knows how to woo a woman with flowers, pastries, and sweet tea. Lautner is every girl’s dream, but Sydney is not every girl. She’s immune to rainbows, fairytales, pixy dust, and the “L” word.

The attraction is immediate, the friendship is earned, and the love is undeniable. Thirty days is their forever, but forever is not long enough.

A standalone Contemporary Romance novel!

Undeniably You by Jewel E. Ann

You know that first peak on a rollercoaster? Yeah, it’s like that. Undeniably You by Jewel E. Ann is like taking a ride on the world’s biggest, fastest roller coaster, you are laughing, your heart is racing and you are in complete anticipation of what comes next! As the ride progresses into a dark tunnel, BAM there is a turn you did NOT see coming and fear of the dark unknown takes a seat next to you, threatening to derail your journey…in a word-wow! In two words- Holy Crap!

Sydney had NO idea what a life-changing experience house sitting for her aunt and uncle would become! One month, one short month and the rest of her life will never be the same. From the “let-me-get-to-know-you,” crotch sniffing Swarley to the sizzling hot “not-the- pool-guy” to the kind of hot and sweet veterinarian, Sydney has entered uncharted waters that threaten to throw her off the course she has set for her life path.

Who knew that beneath that smoking hot body, charismatic personality and those sparkling blue eyes, Lautner was hiding more than a few secrets, especially when it came to Sydney? Sydney, with her own awkward moments, brilliant sense of timing and competitive nature is in full denial that Lautner is more than just a friend with outstanding benefits, an amazingly huge heart and an expiration date. One month and she is gone and back on the path to her future, that she sees only through tunnel vision. Is Lautner that easy to forget?

On the back burner there is always Dane, the quiet and stable vet. Will Sydney realize that life cannot be lived according to an excel sheet of goals? Will the tumultuous relationship with Lautner be her downfall? Where does Dane fit in? One seriously messed up woman, two warm-hearted men and more joy, pain and misunderstandings than there are jelly bean flavors, Jewel E. Ann has done it again! Apparently no bar is too high to beat!

Jewel E. Ann created characters like Sydney, who I went from thinking rocked one minute to "she had rocks in her head" the next! I felt rather sorry for Dane, until “that moment” and Lautner? He had me all over the board, from perfect,fun book boyfriend to the most mature of the crowd, especially when he held out for one sentence from the clueless Sydney. Now that’s character development! Every single supporting role was well-played, added tension, as well as laughter and a few tears.

Congratulations to Jewel E. Ann for making me laugh until I cried and then made me cry until I ran out of tissues and almost resorted to my sleeve. If you’re looking for an original romantic read that starts out light and plunges you into a powerfully emotional journey, spanning several well-plotted years, this is it!

I received this copy from Jewel E. Ann in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Great Review! You should be a writer yourself. I see Jewel has acknowledged you in her newest book Idle Bloom. (I won an ARC, lucky me)
