Series: Counting on Love Series Book #3
Author: Erin Nicholas
Blurb: Sometimes it takes a couple of tries before you get love right. Emma Dixon is known for getting in over her head—and having a great time doing it. She’s aware her shenanigans rub Nate Sullivan the wrong way, but getting a rise out of the cocky surgeon is one of her favorite pastimes. Truth be told, exasperated looks aren’t the only things she wants from the guy.
Nate has no intention of taking another trip down the falling-in-love road. Women are carefully compartmentalized—to his bedroom. Women who don’t mind his take-charge tendencies. Women very different from sassy, sexy, independent Emma. But his usual strategy of arguing with Emma to keep from kissing her goes out the window when his son falls in love with her friend’s daughter. Emma sees a normal teenage romance. Nate sees his plans for the boy’s future ruined.
As Nate tries to derail the relationship, Emma runs interference, putting herself directly in the path of the chemistry that grows stronger every time they butt heads. And that could very well lead to the best surprise of all.
Warning: Contains a guy who knows exactly who he is and what he wants and a girl who’s going to change his mind about, well, everything. Plus inappropriate use of chocolate cake (of course, that depends on your definition of inappropriate).
Thoughts: “So why don’t you ever ask me to take my clothes off?” What can I say? Erin Nicholas definitely knows how to start of a book with a bang! Every book I have read of hers manages to capture your attention immediately. And to be honest, after getting to know both Nate and Emma through the first two books of this series, I was already dying to read this one. This is probably the one I have been most looking forward to – other than Connor’s of course -which will be last in the series. (Oh, I can’t wait for that one….sighs impatiently)
Emma was of course Emma…the epitome of the three F’s: fun, flirty, and flighty….but with each book we get to see a different side to her. In this one, we got to see her more serious side, and to watch her grow up a little bit more. And Nate was Nate….the epitome of the S’s: serious, steadfast, and sexy….but we get to see a new side to him as well. Who knew he was hiding a little bit of a Dom underneath all those stuffy shirts? We definitely see a whole new side to night – a bossier side than we even guessed at!
The bottom line? This is a typical Erin Nicholas read. Fun and entertaining, yet such a compelling story that we can’t put it down. And – never fear – it holds what I have come to call the “Erin trademark” – a hot, impulsive, sexy spot that the core couple makes love at – one that has you looking at the oddest things with new eyes….LOL Last book, it was a car wash – this time, we get a truck. It also has the “Erin’s ending” – what I have come to associate with the big HEA scene at the end that just is so sweet and romantic that it makes everything worthwhile. For Erin’s fans…you won’t want to miss this title. You simply have to read Nate and Emma’s story. New readers, this can be a standalone with no problems….but the others are sooo good – trust me, you’ll want to read them too!
