With friends like these…they may never date again!

A Bradfords series short story.

Out of their entire group of friends, Kevin Campbell and Doug “Dooley” Miller are the last bachelors standing. And if their friends’ wives have anything to say about it, they’re both going down—the sooner the better.

Sure, sometimes it’s torture to stand by and watch their friends enjoy true lo

If you love the Bradfords, you will love this short! I love the Bradfords and I loved this short!! Sexy times with the Bradfords and their spouses...very HOT! Not much of a story, more like catch-up and a set-up for Kevin and Dooley's books, honorary Bradfords and the last hold outs! I can't wait to read their books! Thanks for the freebie treat Erin Nicholas!

A short, steamy and sexy novella that is a fun-to-read addition to the "Bradfords" series. This one updates the “couples” from previous books while they hatch plans to find HEAs for the “adopted” Bradfords, Kevin and Dooley, who will get their stories told soon. If you’ve read the other books, you won’t want to miss out on this freebie “extra.”

A very short novella that shows the couples of the last three books & the two single friends Kevin and Dooley and their friends trying to set them up. Dooley it seems has secrets, which I think we will find out later. Enjoyable novella.

Slick's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

I was really excited about this very, very short story freebie* from author Erin Nicholas and Samhain publishing because it promised to catch up on the lives of the Bradford family and boy did it ever. Just The Way I Like It is really a summary of the first three books in the Bradford series with some bonus material involving all three couples and their two single friends Dooley and Kevin. I absolutely loved how they Erin summed up the first three books (
It was such a joy seeing the gang together again!

I remember while reading Just Like That wishing that Doug and Kevin (especially Kevin) would have their own books, but I thought since it was a Bradford series so it will only be about the Bradfords.
Now, you can't imagine the level of shriekness my voice attended when I read on Mrs. Nicholas' website that the guys will have their own books. And even more, when I found out that the novella was free on Samhain's Publishing, just perfect!

I truly love the Bradfords series and was so excited to hear that the series is continuing. This novella is a wonderful bridge from the first three books in the series to the next two books. I fell in love with the Bradfords and "the guys" and I am thrilled that this novella gives us a glimps of our first three couples and their lives. I am excited about the introduction of questions as to why the remaining two "guys" have not found the loves of their lives yet.

Erin Nicholas amazes me with her

Another great read from Erin. This is a short story in the Bradfords series to set you up with a little insight for the fourth book in the series Just for Fun. It’s a quick look into how the newly married men want the single guys to be able to find the love they now have. The wives can’t help wanting to get involved and the sooner they find these two wives the better.

Dooley and Kevin are the only bachelors remaining from this tight group of friends that are more like family and the guys just don

Contemporary Romance

Short story in The Bradford's series.

Although I have not read the prior books in this series, the author did a great job providing a short "Character Guide" at the beginning of this book that gives the reader some history of each character featured in the prior books and this book. This information was VERY helpful knowing how everyone fit in the story.

The author also did a great job providing additional information about the prior relationships in this book as well. I was

The one that got me hooked!

This was the first Erin Nicholas story I ever read and it turned me in to the rabid Erin Nicholas fan that I am.

Though this book was part of the Bradford series, it gave enough background on all of the players that a first time reader could keep up and did so without weighing the story down with history.

On the strength of this novel alone, I bought every other novel written in the series and have never regretted it. Trust me when I say you won't regret it either. If

This is a strange novella. It goes on at great length about the sexual encounters of the married couples who are all friends and/or related to each other. It mentions the three or so couples attempting to find women for the two single men still in the EMS service which seems to be the common job of the men...excepting Ben who's a trauma surgeon in the same hospital. Suddenly it ends with the two men planning to go to a charity shindig. huh? I'm obviously missing something...and maybe the 3.5 on ...more

Just the Way I Like It is a short read that comes between books 3 and 4 in the Bradfords series. It gives readers of the series a glimpse of Jessica, Ben, Sam, Danika, Sara, and Mac. We get to see a little bit of their lives after their happily-ever-afters. Plus, we get a chance to see Dooley’s and Kevin’s points of view, which makes the anticipation of their books even greater.

A must read for anyone who has read the Bradfords series. Just the Way I Like It is a perfect compliment to the other

Just Right, Just Like That, and Just My Type introduced us to the Bradford clan. Erin Nicholas has given us the perfect catch up and preview in Just the Way I Like It! Jessica & Ben, Sam & Dani and Sara and Mac are steaming up the pages, and other places, again! Kevin and Dooley are along for the ride as the girls and guys try to fix them up so they can find wedded bliss too! Now I can not wait to see how our bachelors meet their matches in Erin's next books!
Lee Anne - OMG! It's TOOOOO Cold!
Cute story about a group of friends. They are trying to fix up the two bachelors with girls as they others are all married. It give a little romance and sex for each of the married couples.

I did feel like it just ended. I would have liked to have gotten more at the end.

Overall a cute and short read.
This was a great book! I am a huge fan of the Bradford series and have read all of them at least half a dozen times. It was so nice to see what everyone was up to. The only complaint I have is that I wish it was longer even though this book was only to serve as a catch up before the next two. I can't wait to read about Kevin!

Good if you've read the others in this series

I'm a big fan of Erin Nicholas, but I made the mistake of reading this book before I read the others in this series. Instead of a stand alone, it should apparently be read after book four and before books five and six. It was still a fun and sexy read, and only whets my appetite for more.
Sep 11, 2012 Melissa rated it it was ok
The cover and titled made this look like it was going to be a good read. The ratings on and made it look even better. Maybe I got a shortened version of the story. I'm not sure where this story was going. It seemed to end abruptly just as the story was starting to unfold. I guess I shouldn't complain I did download it for free.
This might be a good book but I couldn't get more then a few pages in. I will say that I have not read the other books nor anything else by this author. Before picking up another book by this author I will be thinking long and hard about it.

Loved this book & getting to know this special group of friends. Definitely going to read more in this series because I have to find out if Dooley & Kevin ever find their special someone. An enjoyable read!

It's my own fault for not paying more attention, but I expected more of this book. This is a short that takes place partway through a series. While I think the characters are great, this is probably better for people who have read the previous books in the series.
