Best of Three by Erin Nicholas

ometimes it takes a couple of tries before you get love right.

Counting on Love, Book 3

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 totally love Erin's books and will drop all the other books to
I totally love Erin's books and will drop all the other books to read hers.  And Best of Three was another winner for me.  I love this series and now this book.  Nate is so alpha and hot.  Emma is sassy, funny and strong.  They complement each other perfectly.  I loved their chemistry and their bantering back and forth.   Erin did get me towards the end, emotionally.  I felt my short temper start to rise.  But of course it all worked out in a very heartwarming way.  I look forward to seeing a little more of Nate and Emma in the rest of the books in the series.  With Erin's books, she always seems to throw in a little extra something fun food wise and she did not disappoint this time.  She took my favorite dessert (chocolate cake) and oh momma used it in a very not way.  It will be a long time before I look at a chocolate cake and not remember its intended purpose for this book.  That was freaking sexy!

This book is awesome! This is the third book in the Counting on
This book is awesome! This is the third book in the Counting on Love series, and although I love them all, this is my absolute favorite so far. Yes, if you haven’t already guessed, I am an Erin Nicholas addict and can never get enough. She has such a wonderful way of making you a part of her stories. You will feel like you are right there alongside all of her characters while you are reading. One thing I really love about Erin’s stories is that no matter what kind of mood I happen to be in they will always cheer me up because they make me laugh out-loud and even cry, sometimes I yell at the characters, and other times I’m really hoping everything will work out perfectly. Every book in the series can be read as a stand-alone title, but I recommend reading them in order so that you get acquainted with all the friends and family that are involved in each of the books. Emma Dixon does not want to be compared to her three sisters, so she will do almost anything that will draw attention to herself. There are many things that are rumored about her that are not the truth at all, but she does not do anything to set them straight. She has hid her feelings for Nate Sullivan for years, and she is a major flirt with all the guys she knows. But the flirting is one thing that drives Nate absolutely crazy. Nate is a trauma surgeon at St. Anthony’s Hospital, and he plays defensive back for the Omaha Hawks. He’s also a single parent who has no intentions of dealing with relationships and the possibility of falling in love. Emma has been driving him nuts for a few years now, but he knows he is too controlling for her among other things and must do anything to keep from getting too close to her.  Nate’s son has fallen in love with the daughter of Emma’s best friend. He is determined to make sure that Michael and Shannon are not doing anything they should not be at their age, or that could ruin his plans for Michael’s future. Emma knows they are just acting like two teens in love but Nate does not believe that for one second, so she decides to prove to him that the teens are fine. Sparks start to fly as Emma tries to keep Nate away from the teens, and they grow closer than either one of them ever expected. Will a relationship bloom between them? Or will Nate walk away when he no longer needs Emma’s help with his son?

I have read this series twice and by far this is my favorite boo
I have read this series twice and by far this is my favorite book in the series. This partly stems from my love/hate of Emma's character. On one hand I love her because she is a little wild and crazy and on the other hand I think she sometimes fails to put other peoples feelings ahead of her own. I felt this way from the small parts she had in books one and two. Book three however was her story and what was a love/hate relationship is now a full on love relationship. Emma's character is a little misunderstood my her friends and family and I think for her it was finding the right balance in life and in order to do that she needed to find her better half in life that evened out the scales. I love Nate because he is that controlling guy but he can completely lose that caveman mentality when he is with Emma, the one he loves. I don't normally read books more than once but I would read this one a third time just because I love their story so much. I can't wait for updates on their relationship in the fourth and fifth book in the series.
