Book Description

If only he wasn’t so good at being bad…

The Bradfords, Book 1

Dr. Ben Torres, better-than-a-Boy-Scout, surgeon extraordinaire, has been interested in ER nurse Jessica Bradford—and her bright red peek-a-boo thong—for a long time now. But punching a patient in the nose—and the subsequent suspension—is probably not the best way to get on her good side.

Or is it?

Jessica is one step away from the big promotion she’s worked for all her professional life, and now everything rides on her ability to keep Dr. Perfect—aka handsome, heroic Ben—on a short leash until the potential lawsuit blows over. And to keep her raging crush on him under wraps.

First order of business is to pry her knight in shining scrubs’ perfect ass off a bar stool. Except he refuses to move until she agrees to—and then loses—a bet for 48 hours of her undivided attention.

It’s all downhill from there. And despite herself, Jessica can’t help but give in to the temptation to go down with him…

Warning: Contains hot love in a store dressing room and in the front seat of a car—at the expense of a very nice strawberry patch, unfortunately—oh, and hooker boots. Can’t forget the hooker boots.

Book Description

In super-nurse Jessica Bradford’s eyes no man measures up to Dr. Ben Torres the hero of the ER… until he punches an obstinate patient in the face. Now she’s concerned not only for the secret romantic dreams she’s been harboring, but also for her job. Their boss has put Jessica in charge of keeping Ben out of trouble so that his temporary suspension doesn’t turn into a permanent condition. The real problem is that trouble is exactly what Ben is trying to get into… and when she’s with him Jessica can’t seem to remember why that’s a bad thing.

About the Author

Erin Nicholas started writing as soon as she realized that books were actually created by people versus just appearing in those magical places called “libraries” and “bookstores”. She started writing romance as soon as she realized that happily ever after was real and that she could make the guys in her stories do whatever she wanted. She started writing sexy contemporary romances when she realized her mother actually did know the word “sex” and wouldn’t die if her daughter wrote about it. This is Erin’s second published title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Steamy Read August 20, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun sexy contemporary from Erin Nicholas. The heroine, Jessica, has been walking the straight and narrow ever since her father died when she was twenty, leaving her to raise her younger brother and sister. She's an emergency room nurse and oozes responsibility, so she's the first one the hospital administration chooses to babysit hottie Dr. Ben Torres, who's just put the hospital at risk for a huge lawsuit by punching out a patient. Since Jess has been crushing on Ben for a while she's more than happy to comply. Until she realizes that formerly upstanding Ben is hell bent on tossing aside his respectability and being very, very bad. With her!

JUST RIGHT was a funny, sexy, entertaining read that could have veered off into preachy territory, but fortunately never did. With a colorful cast of characters including Jessica's siblings, the local paramedics and the staff of St. Anthony's Hospital, Nicholas has the great beginning to a series here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic debut to contemporary romance series! December 9, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just Right is Book #1 in the Bradfords series which is about three siblings (Jessica, Sam and Sara). I first read Book #3 (Just My Type which is Sara's story) because I had no idea it was part of a series. I loved Erin Nicholas' writing and humour so much that I immediately bought Book #1 and #2 and I knew that I would be in for a treat. And I was not disappointed!

Just Right is Jessica's story: she is the eldest sibling, who was once a rebellious teenager but who stepped up and raised her brother and sister after their father died when she was just around 20. Since then Jessica changed her ways and became the always reliable, serious and responsible older sister and perfect nurse. Her Saturday nights are spent either watching the TV, scrubbing her bathroom or washing laundry, until her office crush forsakes the respectable role of a responsible take charge doctor and spends his days in bars getting drunk and not having a care in the world.

Ben is the star surgeon at the clinic, however he feels his life is not satisfying anymore. His frustration and anger mounts every time when he sees a patient he cared for not doing their part in the recovery. Then one day he explodes when a man he saved a couple of weeks ago has a DUI accident and causes the death of a lot of innocent people. Ben gets suspended for some time after punching the guy, to cool off as his superiors say, but Ben doesn't have any intention to cool off. He's had it with the ER and the stupid careless patients and all the stress and worrying which go with being a doctor. So he goes on a self-destruction or should we say college boy rampage: he gets drunk, plays pool and flirts with women. Enters Jessica, whom her brother (who is also Ben's friend) asked to babysit Ben and make sure he doesn't get in trouble.

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked it but... February 18, 2011
Format:Paperback
I actually did enjoy the story of Ben and Jessica. I liked Jessica's family and am interested in reading the rest of the series. But I found myself getting both bored at points and confused. The constant inner monologue from Jessica worrying about her past, and of Ben remembering the pain of returning from Africa, got to be repetitive with nothing new to offer. I started to find them both to be a little whiny. I liked their stories, but was disappointed I had to wait so long in the book to find them out. I felt the author could have done more with them to develop the characters earlier on.

Also some of the plot I found confusing and hard to follow especially when it came to the passing of days - how long did the story really last? I couldn't figure out when a day ended and another began especially with the hectic work schedule of ER personnel thrown in. And also the sex scenes were really hot sometimes, and then so vague other times that I didn't even realize they had actual sex. I never even realized Jessica DID have an orgasm until it was mentioned that she had had two already. There was a lot of build up and not much **climax**. I don't need graphic scenes, but just a little more description of what had actually just happened would have been nice.

Overall, a nice simple read, just don't expect to be swept away.

If I wanted a lesson on how to completely write a book series that will never be picked up by an agent or publishing house with any sense this is it!

Jessica is a once-wild-child shouldering the ever waffling level of guilt over her father's ambitions and dedication to others. After his death she comes home and takes care of her two siblings (apparently experiencing the level of confusion and frustration with picking kids up on time from school and paying bills that my brain damaged cousin would have IF she could drive). She now works in the ER at a local hospital.

Ben is a the typical Ivy League movie-good-looking guy with a magical talent for people and medicine. His dad was a missionary who spent his life and energy only doing that; generally acting like a piss poor father figure.

I am roughly halfway through the book and there has been NO:

discernible conflict
startling situation or event that will change either character's life permanently
sex
change in how the characters interact with each other

Toss in some diamond-in-the-rough street kids (one called Mario who is evidently a candidate for MENSA but lives a "fight club" life), a lame set up for Ben's grief (a wiped out village in Africa he spent 6 years on a mission to) and we have the weak tug of war in this book. She gets a bit huffy and leaves a bar about now. I was hoping for her to be hurt, aloof, make him work for it and hit a realization he would have to work through. Wrong; he brings pizza to her wayward children at the center and she melts all over him. *disappointed sigh*

All in all, I skim the pages to find dialogue or skip the page-long introspection that happens about every 3 pages.

Crossing my fingers.
