Forever Mine

Opposites Attract series

by Erin Nicholas

Maya Goodwin doesn’t believe in holding back. Ever. As a cop, she never hesitated to throw herself into harm’s way to save someone. Even after an injury on the job forces her to retire, she’s not afraid to keep risking it all to get the life she wants. With a new career teaching martial arts to kids already underway, she’s looking forward to the future – and taking a chance on the unbelievably hot Dr. Alex Nolan.

Maya – daring and spontaneous – is the exact opposite of what Alex always thought he wanted. But when a nine-year-old daughter he never knew existed shows up on his doorstep, Maya is the one who helps them hold it together. With love on the line, will the guy who’s always played it safe be willing to take the biggest risk of all?

I love the heroines and heroes in this series.  The women are fun and sexy and a whole lot geeky.  It’s so refreshing to see them actually be so into their particular thing and own it  🙂  And Nicholas does a fabulous job of giving them heroes who can actually appreciate them.

Maya is totally kick ass – she’s great with kids, strong & athletic, creative & fun … her only problem is that she doesn’t acknowledge limitations.  And unfortunately Alex is a hemophiliac, which means that he’s learned to be cautious.  It’s not stopped him from living his life, which is so admirable, but he can’t quite throw himself into things with the same enthusiasm that Maya does.

Life has also taught Alex to keep his condition to himself, which you can bet will cause some trouble between the two of them.  He spends a lot of time keeping his secrets and trying to separate the different parts of his life.  Unfortunately Maya’s go-for-it attitude doesn’t play by those rules  🙂   They will need some good communication and understanding to be able to figure out a place in the middle that will work for both of them.  But no one should underestimate Maya – that girls a fighter when things are important.

Entertaining and full of heart, Forever Mine helps cement Nicholas as a must-read author of charming contemporary romances.

(Characters will continue to reappear in each story, since they are such close friends, but it looks like each will stand on its own.)
