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!

Recommended Read – Just Like That by Erin Nicholas

Image from Erin Nicholas’ website
Just Like That is pure fun and enjoyment. I love how the sexy, witty banter between Danika and Sam had me smiling and laughing out loud. 
After getting a glimpse of Sam and his character trait of never wanting to be needed in Just Right, I was hooked on how Danika changed him. He wanted to help her while at the same time he wanted to run in the opposite direction. He wanted to be needed by her. The idea of anyone else helping her killed him. That made me love Sam even more. 
Danika needs no one. She’s made sure of that because of her childhood. If it’s broken, she can fix it. However, she can’t fix a broken wrist and it kills her to have to ask anyone for help.
Sam doesn’t do relationships, period. One night and that’s it. So when Sam gives rules to his friends regarding Danika, I laughed out loud. It was priceless. That’s just one of the many moments that had me laughing.
Sam and Danika are the driving force of the story. These two characters make the book an outstanding read. The moment when they finally get together forever is perfect for them. The moment is symbolic and fitting for them. 
This book is filled with humor and sexy romance. I recommend this book to any reader looking for a contemporary romance with laughs and sexy banter.
5 Stars = A must read 
Some rules just beg to be broken.

Sam Bradford knows a lot about women and a lot about sex. Considering how much time he’s spent on both, it’s no wonder he’s regarded as something of an expert. So, when two women set him up with their sister for one purpose only-show her what great sex can really be like-he’s definitely willing and able.

Danika Steffen can take care of herself. With the right tools she can fix anything-even her needs in the bedroom. But her sisters know that if they want her to have a happily ever after, they need to show her that there are very good reasons to let a guy closer than arm’s length

This should all be a piece of cake for the notorious playboy. It won’t even violate his one-night-only rule. Until a date with Danika Steffen ends not in her bed, but with a trip to the ER.

Danika may have a broken wrist, but Sam’s the one suffering…an intense case of guilt. And instead of doing things to her, he only wants to do things for her. Which would drive her crazy if not for the sneaking suspicion that Sam needs a little TLC too. And damned if she doesn’t want to be the one to give it…

Warning: Contains an I’ll-do-it-myself girl who can fix anything, a commitment-phobic guy who can’t fix anything, and a whole new way to look at butter. Yes, butter.

Recommended Read – Just Right by Erin Nicholas

Just Right is just as fun the second time around. Jessica and Ben pulled me in just like before. 
Opposites attract or opposite desires for the future attract in this book. Ben doesn’t want to be a doctor anymore. Jessica can’t wrap her mind around Ben not wanting to help people. Conflict abounds between them.
It’s easy to understand why Ben doesn’t want to be a doctor anymore as his past is revealed. Ben’s decision leads Jessica to wonder if the fantasy she created around Ben is better than the reality. A potential promotion for Jessica has her trying to keep Ben out of trouble. The biggest trouble is the chance of losing her heart to the guy who doesn’t want to be committed to anything anymore.
The chemistry between them keeps pulling them together even through their attempts to resist. Ben believes Jessica is a good girl. Jessica has worked too hard on her good girl image to let Ben’s sudden bad boy ways detour her. It’s a tug of war with desire that keeps you turning the pages.
Erin Nicholas infuses humor and fun into the book. The conversations and innuendos add to the enjoyment. 
I recommend this book to any reader looking for a fun, sexy romance.
5 Stars = A must read 




If only he wasn’t so good at being bad…
Dr. Ben Torres, better-than-a-Boy-Scout, surgeon extraordinaire, has been interested in ER nurse Jessica Bradford-and her bright red peek-a-boo thong-for a long time now. But punching a patient in the nose-and the subsequent suspension-is probably not the best way to get on her good side.
Or is it?
Jessica is one step away from the big promotion she’s worked for all her professional life, and now everything rides on her ability to keep Dr. Perfect-aka handsome, heroic Ben-on a short leash until the potential lawsuit blows over. And to keep her raging crush on him under wraps.
First order of business is to pry her knight in shining scrubs’ perfect ass off a bar stool. Except he refuses to move until she agrees to-and then loses-a bet for 48 hours of her undivided attention.
It’s all downhill from there. And despite herself, Jessica can’t help but give in to the temptation to go down with him.
Warning: Contains hot love in a store dressing room and in the front seat of a car-at the expense of a very nice strawberry patch, unfortunately-oh, and hooker boots. Can’t forget the hooker boots.
