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

Grrrrr! It started off really good. Cute, funny and I really loved Ben. Then it just went flat around half way through. I didn't like Jess. I skimmed to the end after 65%. Not sure if I want to move on with the series:(
I enjoyed this book quite a bit, was it perfect no and there were parts I found annoying as we were supposed to especially Jessica's insistence on making Ben perfect and wanting him to still be an ER surgeon when he quits and says he doesn't want to instead wants to be selfish for once in his life.

Jessica is an ER nurse and incredibly responsible who always does the right thing but that wasn't always the case, she grew up with a do-gooder father who gave away all the money they had except for es

Shelves: contemporary
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 ...more
It started off cute and light, then got strangely preachy. The heroine was interesting at first, then it started to get like she had a really really misspent youth, but... eh, the reveal didn't really seem so bad to me that she felt like she had to do penance for a whole decade. And the hero, who spent many of his younger years in Africa...

Okay, seriously? Africa is a big continent with a lot of stuff going on. So these hints about African masks, and helping farmers learn how to farm, and not ge
ER nurse Jessica Bradford is the epitome of a hard worker in control of everything she touches, although on the surface it appears that way, inside she is often lonely but her past mistakes continue to drive her to set a positive standard for others. Jessica does entertain one revolving fantasy though, that of Dr. Ben Torres, the man oozes sex appeal and bad boy status, and Jessica can’t seem to get him out of her mind.

Ben has had a crush on Jessica since he caught her bent over and a glimpse of

this was the one that got me started on Erin Nicholas....I think she is a very talented writer....I've read all the Bradfords books to date, and they keep getting better.....definitely worth the time and money IMO. I'm also hoping there will be additions to the Bradfords series.:-)

Really enjoyed this book was nice little book to get lost in for a couple hours and as training to be a nurse totally related to some of it. Wish all paramedics where as hunky and the ones in this series. Really do recommend as a good read.

Done Saving People From Themselves?

This series must be read in order. This is the first book.

Jessica was a wild child. She did what she wanted when she wanted and how she wanted. Mostly to prove to her father that his ideals and his philosophies on life were wrong. He was all about sacrifice and service... Until he died. She felt it was all her fault and quickly changed her life around. She became an upstanding and responsible mother to her two siblings... She kept the rec center going... She is

Everyone has a favorite “go to” author. The one that no matter what….you know you’ll love their book and smile while reading the whole time! Erin Nicholas is that author for me! No matter what she writes, I love! She never disappoints!! I read the Bradford series a long time ago, but decided to a re-read of each book so I could leave reviews!
Just Right is book one in the Bradford Series. It’s about oh so sexy doctor, Ben Torres and always in charge Jessica Bradford. When Ben gets fed up with me

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 broth

Just Right is just as fun the second time around. Jessica and Ben pulled me in just like before.

Opposites attract or opposite desires for the future attract in this book. Ben doesn't want to be a doctor anymore. Jessica can't wrap her mind around Ben not wanting to help people. Conflict abounds between them.

It’s easy to understand why Ben doesn’t want to be a doctor anymore as his past is revealed. Ben’s decision leads Jessica to wonder if the fantasy she created around Ben is better than the r

This is the first book in the Bradfords series and I cannot wait to read the rest. Erin has such a way of bringing her characters together that have you feeling like you’re right there with them. I did not want to put this book down until I was finished reading it.

Dr. Ben Torres is a surgeon at the same hospital where Jessica Bradford is an ER nurse and many people consider him a hero. He’s been interested in Jessica for a long time, but one night while working in the ER has his temper getting

This book is a great start to such a wonderful series. Erin Nicholas has a knack for creating characters that are believable and relatable yet somehow larger than life. When I started reading, I couldn't seem to stop.

My favorite moment has to be the bar scene where Jess first goes to rescue Ben. I don't want to say too much for those of you who haven't read it yet, but you'll know it when you get there.

If you like romance that's realistic then you're going to love this book. It will definitely

Erin Nicholas is a hidden gem. The Bradford family series surrounds the lives of a close-knit group of paramedics. Both her characters and her storylines are believable and well-developed. She's managed to create a world that I'd love to be a part of. I'm happy to have found this series. I've since read all of Erin's books and enjoyed them all. Erin is a relatively new author on the scene and is one I'll be watching out for.

I picked this book up because it was a freebie on my Kindle! Boy am I glad that I did. Erin Nicholas is a new author for me so I wasn't sure what to expect. I could not put this book down and before I was even finished reading this one I downloaded the next two! This book has just the right amount of romance, sex, laugh out loud funny and seriousness. This was a perfect read for a cold snowy day. Did a nice job warming me up!

Hot, Steamy, and Romantic

Ben and Jessica two people trying their best to be what other people want them to be. Ben discouraged by life wanting to be a bad boy with no responsibility Jessica a former bad girl all about responsibility when they connect watch out inferno. This book was very hot and steamy. Romance and humour was spread throughout I never wanted it to end

There's not much I enjoy more in my little book world than getting a freebie from Amazon and completely loving it! I'm the exact target Amazon's going for because as soon as I finished this book, I bought the next 2 in the series. I loved everything about this one - characters I fell hard for, great story, strong supporting cast that made me look forward to their books.

Great read!

Fantastic start to the Bradfords series

I absolutely loved this story. Jessica is a bad girl turned good, after a tragic event as a young adult. Ben is a bit of a closet bad boy,who decides that maybe he's due for a career change after tragedy strikes while he's on duty at the hospital.

The chemistry between these two is sizzling. Ben is hot and sexy (and a bit stubborn) but an overall great guy. Jessica is a bit uptight at the beginning, but Ben loosens her up and brings out a bit of a wild side

I really enjoyed this book. It presented so much more than chemistry and sexual tension. The questions brought up by the main characters are very easy to relate to in our daily lives. The situation was complex and each character's personality was superbly showcased.

Anytime someone writes about nurses and doctors and does it accurately - it tickles me silly!!! I love Ben :) And I love Jessica. Their attraction to each other burns throughout the book and the hospital scenes were great!
