Totally His by Erin Nicholas
Totally His (Opposites Attract) - Erin Nicholas
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

With a father that made a living scamming women, Sophie has learned to depend on herself and guard her heart. When her theater ends up with some fire damage, she suddenly finds a hot cop invading her life.
The hot woman in pink lingerie caught Finn's attention right away but her guarded heart is giving him quite the challenge. 
Sophie and Finn are about to be hit with a hurricane of past hurts, family drama, and sexual chemistry.
 
Maybe she'd give him a chance. The thought flashed through his mind. Maybe he'd like theater. Or maybe this was an opposites-attract thing. That seemed more likely. Or hell, maybe they could just date for the sex. 
 
Third in the Opposites Attract series, we have our guarded heroine Sophie and open hearted hero Finn. Sophie's two girlfriends were the heroines of the two previous books but I had no problem starting here in the series. If you like Jill Shalvis, you'll enjoy this couple’s similar in tone playful encounters. The first half of this book was incredibly delightful with Finn and Sophie meeting and acting out some great fun and hot chemistry. 
 
How he wanted to say sweet things like how gorgeous she was and how lucky he felt that she'd let him close like this. Close was hard for her. This was not sex-only dating, and he knew she knew that. 
 
A fire gives our couple their meet-cute but Sophie actually ends up being the great theater friend Finn's mother had been raving about. Finn is the oldest and every since his father died, he's taken on the role of leader and taking care of everyone. I liked his calm, cool, and take care of business attitude that was also accompanied with a sense of humor and sexy demeanor. He was a great companion to Sophie's kickboxing, I don't want any part of a family, and feisty self. The first half was them meeting, feeling each other out, and sparking off each other and I enjoyed it immensely. After that, it seemed their relationship was a bit rushed with their second meeting kind of snowballing into a pretty invasive personal talk and not a ton of long interactions. The story started getting a bit repetitive with Sophie fearing getting close to Finn and his family, being hot and heavy with him, and then proclaiming she must stay away. 
 
And he wanted to eat ice cream in bed with her. He wanted to read out loud to her. In bed. And he wanted to talk dirty to her. In bed. In the shower. In the kitchen. In his truck. There were so many dirty things he wanted to say to her, do to her, hear from her. 
 
After our leads sweet, lively, and down and dirty beginning, I was little disappointed in the second half not providing some more depth to their relationship. A vast majority of the scenes take place in the theater, Sophie doesn't spend any time with her friends, and not a ton of scenes of Finn and Sophie interacting with the large amount of secondary characters. For the big role Finn's mom plays in the story she actually stayed a bit too much to the sidelines along with Finn's brother and partner. Having Sophie and Finn's friends and family stay to the side too much gives the story a lack of depth that small town (this actually takes place in Boston but there is clearly a community of people that the author is focusing on to provide a small town feeling) contemporary romance is known and loved for. 
 
Sophie's father provided a good antagonist to keep our leads from an easy happily ever after but for the most part this story was pretty heavy angst free. This was a sweet story that wasn't afraid to also get down and dirty. I greatly enjoyed visiting the Kelly family starring Finn and will look forward to his firefighter brother Colin hopefully getting top billing next time.

Totally His (Opposites Attract) - Erin Nicholas

He’s the type of guy to keep a dachshund so she won’t be traumatized by another move. He’s the type of guy to get involved in the theater for his mom. He’s the rock of his crazy family. He’s a cop. He’s a good guy.

Totally His (Opposites Attract) - Erin Nicholas

“Okay, yes, I’ll go to a play with you sometime,”he said. “I’ll even buy. But you have to sit close and explain stuff to me that I don’t understand.”

She looked confused for one second, and then her lips curled. “You thought I was asking you out?”

“Oh, you’re not dedicated to helping people learn about the theater and fall in love with your greatest passion?”he teased.

She tipped her head. “You like chocolate martinis?”

"Um…what?”

"Those are probably my greatest passion.”

He chuckled. “Never had one of those either.”

“Hmm, so many things to help you learn to be passionate about.”

Heat streaked through his gut. Yeah, he definitely wanted to try something new.

Totally His (Opposites Attract) - Erin Nicholas

 

The lure of Erin Nicholas is that through the drama and heartbreak she never holds back on the realism.  Using the defining moments in life such as falling in love, facing fears and learning about what makes us who we are, she stays true to life and allows hints of the childhood fairy tale to filter into adult happiness.  Totally His takes on fear and self - doubt with the humor that is Ms. Nicholas' trademark and the emotion that every fan expects.  Sophie makes neurotic sexy while Finn thrives on keeping readers guessing.  With a flair for fun and a penchant for romance, this couple shoots for the stars and hits the bullseye.

Opposites Attract (Nerds of Paradise Boo... Opposites Attract (Nerds of Paradise Book 1) - Merry Farmer

Opposites Attract by Merry Farmer is a totally fun read.  Ms Farmer has given us a book that is loaded with humor, drama, sizzle and suspense.  I loved the characters in Casey and Scott's story, they are a perfect fit in this book.  I enjoyed reading Opposites Attract and look forward to reading more from Merry Farmer in the future.  Opposites Attract is book 1 of the Nerds Of Paradise Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
