Darcy Stone has never been easy to get along with. When she didn’t fall in line with her parents she went to boarding school. When she didn’t fall in line there she went to jail.

Staying out of line meant that Darcy kept her heart close and didn’t allow for anyone to hurt her because if even your own parents can’t love you, who ever will?

Physical Therapist AJ Colten has been in love with Darcy forever, but watching her battle her way back from a life-altering accident solidified it. His only issue is that it’s obvious she doesn’t want anything to do with him.. and that her siblings are his best friends.

What’s a guy to do?

Hott Review:

What I liked: I love that this is a book about rescue dogs. It takes a wonderful person to pull together resources for animals in need of loving homes and I really liked that Ms. Shalvis brought this to the attention of so many.
What I didn’t like: Still the One is not my favorite Jill Shalvis read. Darcy is so very abrasive that Still the One made me tense and I couldn’t enjoy it. Plus, the off-color language felt excessive.

Author Bio:

New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis lives in a small town in the Sierras with her family and far too many assorted quirky characters. Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books is, um, mostly coincidental.

Look for Jill’s latest, ONCE IN A LIFETIME, on shelves and ereaders now, and get all her bestselling, award-winning books wherever romances are sold. Also, visit her website for a complete book list and daily blog detailing her city-girl-living-in-the-mountains adventures.
