Counting on Love, Book 3
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).
I’ve wanted Emma’s story since book one of this series! I love her feisty attitude. Nate thinks she only wants him because he hides his interest in her, but boy is he wrong. Hilarity ensues as Emma tries to keep Nate from making an ass out of himself with his son. The sexual tension between these two almost reaches combustion when he finally gives in and decides to give Emma a little more attention than most doctors give their patients. I read this while in the airport and on the plane and I got plenty of looks due to my almost constant laughter. Erin’s book are always so funny in addition to being full of lots of hotness and some romance thrown in. This is a great addition to the series. The irony of the ending made me giggle as Nate had to talk to his son about what was going on. Once again Erin has written a book that wiggled its way into my head and wouldn’t let go. Once I started reading, I hated having to put it down for trivial things like work or sleep. Make sure you have time set aside to read in one setting. And keep your pocket vibe close-you’ll see why. 😉
CONTEST TIME: Erin has graciously provided two ecopies of Best of Three to two of my lucky readers. Tell me have you ever lusted after one of your doctors?
