Blog rating: 3.5/5 stars

The story starts out with a sexy bang *grin* as Jack meets Brooke, thinking she’s the office cleaning lady, and has them in a lip lock and her top off within minutes. Jack’s in town on a mission to help Brooke, and in his mind that help comes in the form of giving her $250,000 from his Uncle’s life insurance policy. Brooke won’t accept help from anyone for any reason, determined to put her time in at the small town clinic as a phys
I have given this 1 star overall as if I am honest, I really didn't like this overall and it actually really annoyed me in the end - I am pretty angry as I write thinking about it and it isn't often that a book actually makes me angry. It would have been a d-n-f if it hadn't been for the fact that I was so near to the end by the time it started really making me angry.

The beginning of the book was pretty good and I was really looking forward to it. It seemed quite fun, interesting and there was s

I love this author. Like the small town setting and the characters.
If you liked this book check out the Bradford series by her. By the time I was done reading it I wanted them all to be my friends. Great series.

Erin Nicholas tells a story that keeps you interesting from start to finish. There is a wonderful chemistry between the hero and heroine that I just want to keep reading and wishing it didn’t come to an end because I could not get enough. I laughed, I cried, and sometimes I was doing both at the same time as the main characters try to put the past behind them and not worry about what other people think.

Brooke Donovan has tried so hard to live a quiet life. Her late husband had made a financial a

4 Stars.

A nice easy read that had me rooting for the hero.

Hotblooded is the first book I’ve read by Erin Nicholas. I had no idea what to expect going into this book. Two years ago at the Lori Foster Reader and Author Get Together there was information about it in the goodie bag. I looked it up on Amazon, and added it to my TBR list. It had been so long since that happened, though, that I didn’t remember anything about it or what had peeked my interest.

The story is about a young woman, Brooke Do

This was my first read from this author, and it won't be my last. I saw the book promoted on another author's blog, and it looked interesting. I apparently have more of her on my Kindle (I can't be the only one where stuff gets lost on my Kindle!) so I'll have to read the other things I have. This was a fun story with great characters. I found myself getting frustrated that just little pieces of things were revealed here and there, lol. I was wondering why everyone hated Brooke? Why wasn't she m ...more

Steamy, Sexy, Sweet - This is how I would describe Erin Nicholas's writing. I loved this book and as with every book I read of hers I fall more in more in love with her writing style - she is an AUTO MUST BUY for me.

HOTBLOODED - just like the title says it is "HOT" and gets your "BLOOD" going within the first few pages.

Brooke Donovan is a young widow that is stuck in the small town of Honey Creek, Texas, where her husband had established a small clinic. Now she has no other choice but to stay

Another steamy read from Erin Nicholas. Just like her single titles and her awesome Bradford series, she hits this mark on this book.

To be blunt, Brooke is basically marked as the town slut even though there was no indication that she ever was one (although her mother was another story). She has come back to the hometown that she hates to run the clinic her husband had set up before he died. If she shows up each work day for two years, her college tuition debt will be paid off. So simple and pai

When the daughter of the town’s most "notorious woman" and the hot new doctor connect both inside the exam room and out, blood pressure cuffs are surely needed. A great romance with plenty of spice; it is nice to see a couple act on their desires and quickly. Brooke and Jack have a long way to go if they are going to be able to stand within five feet of each other and not combust.

Erin Nicholas has given us another set of characters and a new town to fall in love with. This one kept my Kindle in

Hotblooded is full of emotions, turmoil and passion. But beyond the romance, Hotblooded is a story about emotionally healing, finding real love and forgiveness. It has a secondary cast I hope we see more of and I would like to see more of Jack and Brooke, yes they had their HEA but I want to see them living their lives in love and happy, there is a teaser at the end that made me smile =) OH and that freakin' cappuccino machine...cold cappuccino would be my favorite too ;-)

I loved this book!

Just when I think her stories cannot get any better, Erin Nicholas amazes me again.

This love story has a hero and heroine that, despite their baggage, are adorable. I believe the characters acted and reacted much like I would in the same circumstances; making me feel like I was part of the story, rather that an observer.

I love that Erin Nicholas's voice is relatable and her wit is infectious. I often caught myself laughing at the banter between characters (and the characters' t
Jan 07, 2013 Bridget rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This had the makings of a good book but it fell short, in my opinion. I enjoyed it, now, don't get me wrong, but I didn't feel like the story went where it could have and should have gone. There just wasn't enough... the relationship between Brooke and her father-in-law could have been explored much more and that could have made the story that much better. Imagine a bit more back and forth between those two. And Mr. I'm-Your-Hero would have had even more reason to be exactly that. I don't feel l ...more

Often times I'll read a "steamy" story, but the characters are so flat that I'll find myself flipping through the pages just to get to the steamy stuff because I don't care about the characters. In the case of Hotblooded, I read every, single word. Ms. Nicholas does a brilliant job of sculpting multi-layered characters that you will be rooting for from beginning to end. There's more than just steam to this story, thanks to the wonderfully complex and emotional characters, it will leave you Hotbl ...more

The author has talent in creating imagery in a
person's mind. However, this story is a "glorified"
short story, made into a novel though obsessive
sex thoughts and scenes. It would be better classified
in the erotica section. There it may have earned a higher
rating. The story could have been good if it had been
"solidly" elaborated on. Also the obsessive sexual
tendencies weren't consistent with the character types.
I won this through a Goodread's giveaway. I am sure it will
be appreciated by someone

3 Stars for Erin Nicholas's Hotblooded

Love a hero who goes after what he wants...namely the heroine! Jack is an irresistible blend of sweet and sexy. Brooke has a lot of issues thanks to her mother. It was nice to see her overcome them in the end, even if I thought the ending didn't live up to all the previous build-up in the book!

Candice Fitzherbert
This was a goodreads firstreads win. it even came with a little one cup package of cuppaccino lol. the joke becomes apparent when you read the book. This is a romance novel with all of the steamy sex scenes, but there is another story underneath of all that. you really feel like you know the characters after reading this book. I loved it. Will definitely read more by this author.

Hotblooded by Erin Nicholas is a fabulous read with winsome characters and an engaging storyline. The dialogue between Brooke and Jack is humorous, sexy and thought-provoking. To read my review in its entirety, please visit http://www.bookreviewsandmorebykathy....

This was a very typical Erin Nicholas book-- sexy, funny, sweet, with a heroine that's made a few mistakes and a hero is hot and yummy and wants to do the right thing! Loved it! Would recommend it to any romance fan!
