Release Day . . . She’s the One by Erin Nicholas

I’ve anticipated the release of She’s the One by Erin Nicholas. This book kicks off her new series, Counting on Love. This series is a spinoff of her much loved Bradford series. If you haven’t read the Bradfords then you’ve been missing out. I can’t wait to start reading this new series. It’s up next on my reading list.

Also, check out Erin’s blog for a great read that bridges the Bradford series with the Counting Love series.

She’s the One Blurb from Erin Nicholas’ website:

Counting on Love, Book 1

Sometimes you see love clearly. And sometimes it has to smack you in the face.

When a stranger walks up and punches him, Ryan Kaye assumes there’s a good reason. But he’s stunned to learn it’s over a one-night stand that never happened —with his friend’s sister, straight-laced Amanda Dixon. When Ryan confronts her about the lie, Amanda apologizes, but Ryan realizes he doesn’t want her to be sorry…he wants the night they supposedly spent together.

Amanda’s not looking to add anyone to her long list of commitments, so she was only trying to let a nice guy down easy by telling him a fling with Ryan broke her heart. So what if the fling only happened in her dreams? But when Ryan Kaye tempts her with the chance to go crazy and fulfill a few fantasies, she can’t resist. Thank goodness one night isn’t enough time to fall in love…

Warning: Contains a hot paramedic who knows how to get a girl to let her hair down, a girl who thinks she prefers her hair up, some naughty laser tag, some naughty role-playing and a lot of falling in love.

Anticipated Read – Just What I Need by Erin Nicholas

The Epilogue A Bradford novella.

Expect the unexpected…especially when a Bradford is expecting

As family and friends gather to see Dooley and Morgan get married, anticipation is high—but no one saw this much excitement coming. A wedding that doubles as a baby shower, a limo that doubles as an ambulance, a hospital room that doubles as a honeymoon suite… Sure, why not? It’s a Bradford wedding, after all.

Dani’s in labor, Sam’s in a daze, Ben’s taking charge, Sara’s crying, Jessica’s got a secret, Dooley’s missing his honeymoon-in other words, things are crazy. As usual. But through it all they’ve got each other. As always.

Warning: An epilogue to the Bradford series (seriously, this is an epilogue, so keep that in mind) featuring all the couples, a wedding, a baby—or two—and donuts. Because you have to have donuts.

Aniticated Read & Giveaway – Just A Kiss by Erin Nicholas

She’s unforgettable… and that’s exactly what got him into trouble the first time.
The Bradfords, Book 5
As a paramedic in the busiest ER in the city, Kevin Campbell knows there’s no such thing as a typical night-but this one definitely has them all beat.
His dad’s been stabbed with a fork, his mom’s been in a fight, and it’s all because of a younger half-brother he never knew existed. And if that’s not enough, everyone seems to agree that Kevin should take the boy in for the six months during his mom’s rehab. Oh, and the annulment he thought he got fourteen years ago? Never went through.
It’s really too bad he gave up drinking and swearing.
Eve Donnelly is shocked to see Kevin again, but not surprised they’re still married. After all, she was the one who refused to sign the annulment papers. Now that she’s got Kevin back in her life, nothing else matters. Not even her past fourteen less-than-virtuous years. In fact, the truth about her life without Kevin isn’t even worth bringing up. She hopes.
When Eve offers to help Kevin with his younger brother, a sweet, devout preacher’s daughter seems like an answered prayer. Besides, things can’t get more complicated. Can they?
Warning: Contains a bad boy gone good, a good girl who knows all about being bad, and lots of hot, sweet, so-this-is-how-married-couples-do-it sex. 
Available at      Kindle*      Samhain      Nook

*Kindle version is currently not available. If this isn’t fixed by the time the winner is drawn the winner will get a gift certificate to Samhain to purchase Just A Kiss.

Just For Fun by Erin Nicholas Review – A Recommended Read

Loved Just For Fun! The Bradfords series by Erin Nicholas just keeps getting better and it was already amazing. Dooley had me in chapter one.
Dooley is the primary caregiver for his dad. Wow! I already liked Dooley, but after reading that he takes care of his dad at the expensive of falling in love, I was a goner for him. This fact added to the Dooley I already liked from the previous books in this series. Now I understand why he appears so laid back and easygoing. He doesn’t want a romance to take away from his dad and he’s fine with that. Let me just say wow again. As someone who’s taken care of a parent, I really admire this trait in Dooley.
Just For Fun is the perfect title because Morgan and Dooley get together just for fun. No commitments. No expectations. Just fun. Of course, the fun for the readers is how it turns into so much more than fun for both of them.
I completely understand what motives Dooley at the same time I understand Morgan’s motivations. Dooley wants to be there for his dad and not spend money. He’s tight with money because of his past. Morgan wants the stability of money and to make more than enough to share with those she loves because of her childhood. Now she has the opportunity for a job in California where she would make even more money, which is a huge temptation for her. Dooley won’t leave his dad and family. So even though Dooley and Morgan are in love, they have to come to terms with what they want and how that will effect their relationship.
The guys (Kevin, Sam, Mac, and Ben) add to the story. The advice they give Dooley for how to handle Morgan to the way they help Dooley figure out his relationship with Morgan is fun, humorous, and great to read. The references to the movie Pretty Woman are priceless. The friendships leap off the page. I feel like I know the characters and just reading what they say I know who said it.
A recommended read for any reader looking for a sexy, contemporary romance that’s full of laughs, love, and an incredibly sexy hero who reads romance books.
5 Stars – A Must Read
Note: I received an ARC of this book. 

There’s having fun… and then there’s falling in love.
The Bradfords, Book 4
It was a chance meeting, a spontaneous, hot moment, a never-to-be-repeated encounter. So when the gorgeous redhead he knows only as Sugar walks into the bar and heads straight for him, Doug “Dooley” Miller knows he’s in trouble. But he’s sure not going to mind.
She needs a date to some swanky something-or-other. He’s a fish-sticks-and-denim guy, but for a woman who’s not afraid to get naughty in an elevator, he can stand a couple days of smoked salmon and Armani.
Morgan James admits she doesn’t really know Doug, but she needs him to keep her mind-and hands-off her ex. A man who, despite the fact he stole her ideas, she’s afraid could charm her into repeating her mistakes. Only Doug can make her forget the weasel exists. Besides, it’s just this one time.
What started as not even a one-night stand has Dooley feeling things that he’s never felt before. And that’s outside of the bedroom. Don’t even get him started on what’s happening between the sheets. Why does he have a feeling that, as far as flings go, they’re doing something wrong? Then again, if they’re falling in love, they might just be getting that right.
Warning: Contains a woman who knows what she wants, a man who knows what he doesn’t want, and a proposition that shows them both that they’ve never really wanted anything like this before.

5 Star – A must read
With friends like these… they may never date again!
A Bradfords series short story.
Out of their entire group of friends, Kevin Campbell and Doug “Dooley” Miller are the last bachelors standing. And if their friends’ wives have anything to say about it, they’re both going down-the sooner the better.
Sure, sometimes it’s torture to stand by and watch their friends enjoy true love. But all that touching, teasing, and goo-goo eyes? It gets old. Plus, Kevin and Dooley have their reasons for staying single, and a trio of meddling women can’t change that.
Or can they?
That’s the question that’s making them nervous. Very nervous…
Warning: This Bradford series epilogue contains six meddling friends, two sworn bachelors and a bunch of crazy set-ups. It’s also a sneak peek at the next two books where Kevin and Dooley do find true love…without any help from their friends.

Just My Type by Erin Nicholas Review – A Recommended Read

Just My Type is another amazing read in the Bradfords series! I love each story in this series. Every time I’m reading one I think this one is my favorite then I read the next one and think nope this one is my favorite. They are each that great.

Sara is the youngest Bradford. She’s always been taken care of by her sister, Jessica, and brother, Sam. Things in her life have been arranged for her from childhood. She never does anything alone. Now, life is changing with both her siblings married and a baby on the way for Jessica. Sara decides it’s time to go after what she wants and she wants Mac no matter how resistant he is to the idea.
Mac is older than Sara and always thought of her like a sister until one day it all changed. Then one kiss from Sara and he can’t deny his feelings, but he can make sure he doesn’t act on them. Or can he?
Sara and Mac’s desire for each other heat up the pages and add to the conflict. Mac wants everything to stay the same and Sara simply wants Mac.
Sara gradually changes and becomes less of the princess that everyone believes her to be. She’s able to find out who she really is. There is one scene with a snake that gives me the heebie jeebies. Of course, I hate snakes. I must say I admired Sara more after that scene. She is far braver than me.
Mac is a smokin’ hot guy who doesn’t believe good girls are for him. Unfortunately for Sara, he thinks she’s a good girl. So she tries to become a woman he wants. Instead she finds the person she really is, which is exactly Mac’s type even though he didn’t know it.
Of course, there’s many bumps in the road to their happily ever after. Each bump had me turning the pages to find out how it would all work out.
I recommend this book to any reader wanting a sexy contemporary romance with fun and humor mixed in.
5 Stars: A must read
Warning: Contains hot sex at the beach, kinky online shopping and yes, cotton candy flavored body powder does exist.
There’s only one problem with the woman Jason Mac Gordon wants: she wants him back. But she’s off limits. Way off limits. She’s his best friend’s little sister, she’s too young and too innocent for him. Mac knows from past experience to hide his not-so-nice preferences from the nice girls he seems to attract. That definitely includes the woman he’s thought of as a sister for years. At least until recently…
Sara Bradford always gets what she wants, which is partly Mac’s fault. He’s helped spoil her for years. So she has no intention of taking no for an answer from him on anything—including his refusal to sleep with her. If he thinks she’s too innocent, then she’s just going to have to get un–innocent and show Mac that she wants him—the good, the bad and the sex toys.
But will Mac prove that he’s not the guy she thinks he is or will she convince him that she’s just his type after all?

Welcome Guest Author Erin Nicholas

Please welcome the fabulous Erin Nicholas to the blog. She’s dropped by to talk about the very sexy guys in her Bradfords series. These guys will have you rushing to get their books. Without further ado, here’s Erin. 

Thanks so much for letting me hang out with you Stephanie!  I love talking about the Bradfords and their friends and I know this is the perfect place to do that!

The Bradfords are Jessica, Sam and Sara—the siblings—and then their group of friends and “bonus Bradfords”.  On my website under the Bradford Extras tab I have a Who’s Who that better explains who everyone is—cuz there’s quite a group J. Just Right, book one, is Jessica’s story, Just LikeThat, book two, is Sam’s story and Just My Type is Sara’s story.  But then there are some “bonus Bradfords”, friends of Sam’s—Mac, Dooley (Doug) and Kevin.  It just so happens that Mac’s story is also Sara’s story J but Dooley and Kevin didn’t have books until recently. Just For Fun is Dooley’s book and is out July 24th.  Kevin’s book, Just A Kiss, will release in October!  Whew!

I‘m often asked which of the Bradfordbooks is my favorite.  I have a really hard time answering that question!  While the stories have (I hope) the same fun, sexy feel with enough emotion and conflict to make them satisfying, they’re different stories for sure.  I like them all for different reasons.  I think there are hot moments, funny moments and sweet moments in all of them.    I could tell which scenes in each book are my favorites—maybe.  Or which lines—possibly.  But which book?  No way.

Sometimes people ask an even worse question:  which of the guys is my favorite.

I absolutely can not pick between these men.  Honest. All the guys are charming and sexy in their own way.  They all have things that make them attractive and made them fun to write. 

Ben (from Just Right) has a special place in my heart because he was my first J.  I knew Ben before I even knew Jessica and definitely before I got to know the other guys in the Bradfordstories.  He’s the big hero, that guy that can do no wrong, who literally saves lives every day.  He’s a trauma surgeon in a busy ER and… he just makes everything better.  He is probably the most serious of the group.  Though in Just Right he certainly tries to be a bad boy—and definitely succeeds at moments!— overall he’s the one who you can really lean on, who’ll do the right thing. 

Sam… ah, Sam.  Sam is sexy.  Period.  Oh, and he knows it.  In fact, he’s quite proud of it.  Being dependable and responsible are not quite his thing though.  He has a big heart deep down, but he doesn’t let that show much.  He takes care of people but doesn’t make a big deal about it.  In fact, he’d rather people didn’t know that.  He’s protective of his sisters, loves to give his buddies a hard time and can make any woman feel sexy and wanted.  He doesn’t really have a type—he loves all women.  Which, of course, means that when he finally falls for Dani, he falls hard.

Mac is the wild child.  He’s grown out of some of it… wait, no he hasn’t.  He has a huge naughty streak—one that made me even hesitate a few times!  He’s also big, protective and doesn’t care much what other people think.  He’s like an older brother to the gang, especially Sara.  You know Sara.  His best friend’s little sister.  His best friend who knows all about his wild and sordid past.  His best friend who will never be okay with him being with Sara.  Not that that slows Sara down.  It was fun making Mac sweat a little.  Really fun.

Dooley is the goof off with a heart of gold.  He’s also got a naughty streak (what is it with these guys?) but he’s a really good guy deep down.  He acts like a big kid but he’s also sweet and sexy.  He just doesn’t feel like his life has a lot to offer a woman long-term so he keeps things superficial and fun.  Lots of fun.  But in spite of his protests, I found him a girl to be serious about—the perfect one for him.  And he didn’t stand a chance.  (Definitely really fun!)

And then there’s Kevin. He’s such a good guy.  He even goes to church J  But he’s… conflicted.  Cuz deep down (or not really all that deep down) he really likes being bad.  His good-guy thing is relatively new and it’s hard to give up drinking, swearing, partying and women.  Helikes women as much as the rest of them.  One in particular.  The girl that got away.  So, figuring things out for him took a little longer but it was worth the wait!

So, you can see that it’s just too hard to pick one guy!  They all have so much to offer.

I would love to hear who’s your favorite and why J  But I hope you’ll give them all a chance!
