GOING DOWN EASY (Boys of the Big Easy) by Erin Nicholas

Publication Date: August 28, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

1379193D-1419-43FE-8528-3C1BF2FAD357Hot fling or real thing? There are no Big Easy answers in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Erin Nicholas’s sultry series.

As far as flings go, single dad Gabe Trahan is pretty sure that Addison Sloan is his best bet. Once a month, Addison comes to New Orleans and then…It. Is. On. Until Addison returns to New York, it’s just hot, happily-no-strings-attached sex. And beignets. And jazz. But lately for Gabe, it isn’t nearly enough.

Sure, maybe Addison’s gotten a bit hooked on Gabe. After all, who can resist a guy who’s so sexy, so charming, and so…available? But maybe he’s too available for her right now. Addison’s just moved to New Orleans, and relationships are definitely off the table. Besides, guys always bail when they learn her secret: she’s a single mom.

Only Gabe’s not running. Worse, he’s thrilled. But Addison never signed up for ever-after romance, and Gabe won’t settle for anything less. Now it’s a battle of wills—and when it comes to the woman he’s falling for, Gabe isn’t above playing a little dirty.

~*~*~*~

Donna review 4.5 stars

I enjoyed this contemporary romance between two single parents, each approaching parenting in different ways. It was real and honest…not to mention super sexy. Gabe and Addison started with a no commitment sexual relationship that grew to so much more. Their struggle to realize that their contented status-quo wasn’t enough, made for a heartwarming story. I also loved their kids, so different but meshing well. My only pause was how fast Addison went from “no way” to “ok, I’m ready”. It seemed unnaturally fast. Other than that, it was a touching and smoking hot romance. I love the people around them and cannot wait for the next book in the series.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

82F52181-5028-4E67-93D9-F329E8415E8ASophia Birch loves nothing more than the spotlight–as long as she’s playing a part. A theater geek from an early age, Sophia now runs a little hole-in-the-wall playhouse that feeds her passion… even if it sometimes makes it hard to feed herself! And then one night it all nearly goes up in smoke. Desperate to save the only copy of an irreplaceable script, Sophia rushes back into the burning building.

Police officer Finn Kelly knows crazy when he sees it. And a woman running back into a burning building definitely qualifies as crazy. She also happens to be incredibly sexy. But when he finally finds her ruffling through drawers and refusing to leave, his only option is to carry her out over his shoulder….and then decide whether to arrest her.

Excerpt

Finn would have noticed her even if she hadn’t been wearing hot-pink lingerie. And nothing else.
He really would have. She was totally his type—brunette and curvy and, apparently, a little crazy. As evidenced by the fact that she was trying to sneak into a burning building. He did seem to be attracted to crazy. No matter how hard he tried not to be.
He watched the woman stop at the east corner of the Birch Community Playhouse, the one farthest from where the firefighters were working. Then he frowned as she slipped into the shadows along the side of the theater and out of sight.
Dammit. He started after her.
As one of the cops on scene, he had to keep the area clear for the firefighters and keep the crowd of onlookers safe. If one of them happened to have a great body and be dressed in nothing but a pink bra-and-panty set, well, he’d just call that a perk. And as he jogged across the street, Finn couldn’t help but wonder if she was in costume or if the alarm had caught her in the midst of a wardrobe change. If that was her outfit for the show, he might need to buy a ticket.
He turned the corner to the back of the building and looked around. He didn’t see her. She’d gone inside. Dammit. He climbed up the four steps that led to the back door of the theater.
Finn touched the door and found it cool. It seemed that the flames were still contained to the wall on the other end of the theater, but it was a mistake to assume anything when fire was involved.
He stepped inside and pulled the flashlight from his belt, then shone it back and forth. He turned a full circle, not sure where to go next. Just then Finn heard a door slam somewhere behind him. He swung toward the sound just in time to see the woman step out from a room.
Her eyes went wide when she saw him.
“Boston PD! Stop!” Finn shouted.
She had covered up. Kind of. She now wore a robe, short, sheer, and unbelted. Which really did nothing to cover his view of her panties and bra. Or all that skin.
And maybe that was why she suddenly took off at a run.
Finn stared after her for a moment, a little stunned. She was actually running from him?
The woman made it to the other end of the lobby and through one of the doors leading into the main theater before Finn got to her. He grabbed the door as it was swinging shut, nearly smashing his fingers. The lights were off in the inner theater but, as he plunged into the darkness, he got a big whiff of whatever body spray or perfume she wore. He took a deep breath. It was nice. Lemony. Sweet and…
Jesus. Finn scowled and turned his flashlight back on. He was thinking about how she smelled? How about the smell of smoke that was going to be chasing them both pretty soon?
“Hey!” he called into the theater. You have to come out, ma’am. It’s not safe for you to stay in the building.”
“Just give me a damned minute!” she shouted.
“I’m sorry, ma’am, I can’t do that,” Finn said.
“I have to find something. Then I’m coming right out.”
“Ma’am, I will have to remove you myself if you don’t come out immediately.”
“Oh, for fuck’s sake!” he heard her exclaim.
“Ma’am, this is your last warning. Stop what you’re doing and come with me.”
Enough of this. Finn stalked over to her, put a hand around her upper arm, and turned to remove her from the building.
She dug her heels in, though, pulling against his hold. “Hey, you can’t—”
“Oh, yes I can,” he told her calmly, careful to keep his eyes off her body. The heat from her skin had immediately soaked through the thin robe, and Finn felt it traveling from his palm up his arm. “I’ve given you several opportunities to cooperate.”
“You’re arresting me?” she asked.
“Are you doing something that you need to be arrested for?” he asked, moving her toward the door, even with her resisting.
“No! I need to get something. It’s very important. It belongs to a friend of mine. It’s irreplaceable.”
“Ma’am,” he said calmly, “don’t make me carry you out of here.”
She pulled against his grip and leaned all her weight into fighting the forward motion across the room.
Well, shit. He’d kind of figured it would come to this, but he wasn’t sure he was ready to touch her more. Still, it didn’t look as if he had a lot of choice. Reminding himself that he was a professional, he bent and hooked an arm behind her knees, looped the other around her back, and lifted her.
She gasped, and for a moment she didn’t fight. And he thought maybe the hard part was over. But as he headed out the door, trying to ignore how warm and soft and fucking lemony she was, she started to wiggle.

Getting Dirty: Sapphire Falls book three by Erin Nicholas

Rated: 5 Stars

IMG_2191.JPG
Travis Bennett is exactly the kind of guy Lauren Davis has been avoiding for the past nine years. Religiously. Stubbornly. Successfully. She knows too well how easy it is to let lust ruin perfectly laid plans. And a small town farmer with no ambitions beyond the borders of his own cornfield is not going to change her mind. She’s got important stuff to do. Her company is literally working to stop world hunger. Her plans are much bigger than Sapphire Falls. No matter how hot those farmers might be.

The problem is—Lauren is falling in love. With Sapphire Falls. To kick her sudden desire to buy a welcome mat and start baking pies, she asks Travis to help her get over her crush. She wants him to show her what life in the small town is really like behind all the sweetness and sunshine and remind her that there’s no place for French manicures and Gucci heels on the farm.

IMG_2190.JPG
Getting Dirty is sexy and funny. Lauren wants to hate Sapphire Falls. It’s a small town that reminds her of a time she was willing to give up all of her dreams for the proverbial white picket fence and 2.5 kids. Travis Bennett loves everything about Sapphire Falls. The sense of community, friends he has had since he was a kid, and his farm is everything he wants and needs. Lauren thinks Travis is the perfect person to show her everything about the town. She thinks the more she knows about small town Sapphire Falls, the more she will hate the life, and be in a hurry to get back to her ‘normal’ life. Instead the longer she is there the more she becomes unsure if she will ever be able to leave. The chemistry between Lauren and Travis nearly set my kindle on fire. I love the entire Sapphire Falls series. They can each be read as a stand alone, but I recommend them all. This may be my favorite book in the series so far!

SYNOPSIS:
Sapphire Falls, Book One

Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class reunion.

Then he meets the new girl in town.

Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high stress lifestyle. Her only plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free life.

Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her.

Mason sure doesn’t look—or kiss—like a genius scientist geek. In fact, he makes Adrianne’s heart pound like nothing she’s ever experienced. Passion like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple boring life.

Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.

REVIEW:
I loved it! Getting Out of Hand is the first book in the new series, Sapphire Falls by Erin Nicholas. There were charactors I loved, and others that I wanted to hate. Erin Nicholas makes her charactors seem so real to the reader. Mason wanted to ignore the invitation from Sapphire Falls, a little town he swore he would never step foot in again. A town that in his mind only wanted him back now for his money. When his assistant has to force him to take some time away from work, he figures he would make it a quick trip. The first thing he sees sees when he gets to town is Adrianne. Things heat up and their story had me flipping the pages. This is a great new series and I highly recommend it for readers looking for a great love story.

Review: Up by Five (Counting on Love, #5) by Erin Nicholas

Up by Five (Counting on Love) by Erin Nicholas
Publication Date: April 8, 2014
Reviewed by: Reading In Pajamas/ Dawn
Rated: 5 Stars

20140402-081255.jpg
BOOK DESCRIPTION:

He’s got the last thing he ever wanted…and it’s the best thing that ever happened.

Counting on Love, Book 5

Ace paramedic Conner Dixon has sworn to never live with another woman after raising his four younger sisters. Now that they’re all in love, Conner’s ready to retire—from worrying, fixing problems, and cleaning up messes. Yet when fellow paramedic Gabrielle Evans’s apartment burns down and she needs a place to stay, he can’t say no.

Gabby’s penchant for poker and her ability to overhaul a transmission definitely make her different from Conner’s usual women—not to mention a total lack of interest in getting involved with him. With her sights set on medical school, Conner’s crazy mix of family and friends is the last thing Gabby needs right now.

But within forty-eight hours of moving in, Gabby’s up to her eyeballs in a family crisis and Conner’s got the last thing he wanted—a girl and all her stuff, all over his stuff. Still, the more she makes herself at home, the more he thinks that maybe this is exactly where her stuff should be. For good.

Warning: Contains a girl who thinks she wants to be just one of the guys, a guy who happily proves why that won’t work, and a very good reason to buy cinnamon roll icing—you know, other than for use on cinnamon rolls.

REVIEW:

Wow! Blown away! I have loved this entire series and couldn’t wait for Conner’s book. He was the doting brother in the first four books in this series and I just knew it was going to be excellent. Conner had worked with Gabby for years and thought of her as one of the guys until one night a fire ripped through her apartment building. When Conner saw Gabby with an oxygen mask on her face and her barely there pajamas he was awestruck. Her pajamas showed Gabby was definitely not just one of the guys and she was clearly one smoking hot woman. Gabby was everything that he never looked for in a woman. Tall, brunette, smart and fiercely independent. Conner could think of nothing else and since he had a spare bedroom insisted Gabby stay at his place after the fire. Gabby had always had a thing for Conner, but she tried to avoid even thinking about it because Conner didn’t do relationships, and Gabby didn’t do one night stands. With the sparks flying between these two they knew they would have to come up with a compromise because there was no way they could keep there hands off of each other. Gabby was starting med school in two months, so they set an expiration date and about set the sheets on fire with the passion arcing between each other. As their time together nears the end, will they be able to stick to their original plan? Or will Conner and Gabby realize they need each other? I absolutely loved this book. It was funny, romantic, and there was amazing chemistry between the characters. This book can be read as a stand alone, but the series, Counting on Love, is such a fantastic series I recommend reading them all.

Hot firefighter Cody Madsen has stayed away from Olivia Dixon for almost two years—technically. Even though he talks to her every day and sees her every weekend. But there’s no kissing, touching, or telling her how he really feels. Because they’re just friends. Anything more than that would mean crossing the line that Olivia’s older brother has firmly drawn between them.

Olivia wants what her three sisters have—true love. She could almost believe she’s found it with Cody, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s her older brother’s best friend and her brother won’t have it. And he’s never steered her wrong before. Her head is telling her to trust her brother, but her heart won’t let go of Cody.

Her solution? A dating site where she and Cody can each find their “Perfect Pick” once and for all.

But when the site yields some unexpected results, their real feelings come front and center. And they have to decide if it’s worth the risk to cross the line from friendship to love after all.

Warning: Contains a starry-eyed romantic, a wannabe knight in shining armor, and chocolate chip cookies. A lot of chocolate chip cookies.

REVIEW:

Going for Four is Olivia and Cody’s story. They were best friends for years and one night decided they were not allowed to drink together, they were not allowed to talk about sex with each other and most important was the no kissing each other rule. They both wanted to be together but didn’t want to risk their friendship. They both also knew that Olivia’s brother, Connor, would hate the fact that they were together. It was only a matter of time before Olivia and Cody couldn’t resist each other any longer, and after Cody accidentally saw Olivia naked that was all he could think about. Once they both let their guard down their chemistry was explosive. It was entertaining to watch Olivia and Cody get to know each other on another level. The sex was hot, but I felt too much of this book was spent avoiding each other and they spent too much time worrying about how Olivia’s brother felt. Can be read as a stand alone, but it is such a fun series and I recommend reading them all.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

How do you fall out of love with a man who’s all in?

Isabelle Dixon never should have said yes to that first date, but she couldn’t resist Shane Kelley’s larger-than-life personality. Except now Shane seems determined to make their no-strings fling into something more.

If she thought dating Shane was hard work, breaking up is proving to be much harder. Especially since she’s planning on making some major life changes that don’t include staying out all night, Jell-O shots, and a sex toy shop punch card. She needs a restful cabin getaway—alone—to gather her thoughts. And the strength to finally end things for good.

Shane has always prided himself on being the good-time guy. Exactly Isabelle’s type…or so he thought. Yet ever since he suggested her moving in, she’s been pulling back. Thing is, Shane does everything with gusto—including falling in love.

He’s not about to let her get away that easily. Even if it means chasing her heart down a crazy road to prove that no matter what life throws at them, they make a damned good team.

Warning: Contains a strange road trip with several weird tourist stops, some hot sex in a car wash, and two people who are just crazy enough to be perfect for one another.

REVIEW:

Isabelle and Shane embark on a road trip with the goal of trying to decide if they are ready to take the next step in their relationship. Shane wants Isabelle to move in with him. Shane is the happy party guy and he thinks Isabelle is the happy party girl. Isabelle is scared that if she is living with Shane he will see that she is not the happy party girl he thinks she is. Isabelle was recently diagnosed fibromyalgia and is scared that if she can’t keep up with Shane he won’t love her like he does now. Their road trip ends up being a soul searching trip with high emotions as Shane learns of Isabelle new diagnosis and needs to decide if he can be the man for her to lean on. Isabelle makes the road trip exciting with fun games and extra site-seeing stops. Shane and Isabelle can’t keep their hands off of each other and their road trip was made even more fun with the scorching sex in the most unexpected places. Isabelle and Shane started their relationship based on attraction and scorching hot sex, but will that be enough?

This book is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. It Takes Two is the second book in The Counting on Love Series.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

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.

REVIEW:

Amanda believes it is her responsibility to take care of her 4 adult siblings. She has always been the dependable sister, except for one time. That one time left her believing she has to be all business, all the time. Amanda has fantasies about Ryan, who happens to be one of her brothers best friends. Amanda also knows that Ryan is a safe fantasy, believing he would never be interested in her. Amanda’s sister’s birthday wish is that Amanda spends one weekend risking it all and Amanda knows there is only one person she would ever want to make that happen with….Ryan. But would he be interested? She already knew Ryan didn’t do permanent so he would be perfect for one night.

I loved this book from the first page and could not put it down. You could feel the passion sizzling between Amanda and Ryan right away and I couldn’t wait to see how it would work out. I love the way you got to know each character without losing focus on Amanda and Ryan’s story. Ryan wasn’t the playboy Amanda thought he was and Amanda wasn’t the perfect, good girl he thought she was. The passion was off the charts and the sex scenes were smoking hot as Amanda and Ryan got to know each other. This book is part of a series that left me drooling for book two.
