Connor’s back. Just when Abby’s life seems all but perfect, the infuriating man comes charging back in to wreak havoc on her emotions once again. And in typical Connor fashion, he has yet another proposal for her. But instead of a wild and fast fling, he’s proposing... forever.

Brian’s not giving her up without a fight. Normally the tame one of the pair, Brian is holding

Dear author:
You do realize before people read the 3rd book in a series a majority of us read 1 & 2 first? You can not start making shit up that is not true at the end of a series...or actually & preferably never.

"We never told each other we loved each other." Uhhh...yeah you did...first book...I was there...

"I told myself I'd give you a month to figure out if you loved my brother." (view spoiler)

WTF!? Not only am I not a fan of love triangles but I'm definitely not a fan of love triangles that involves two brothers! Then this installment took it further by having the h dating them both at the same time in what they called "joint custody dating"! Sure it's fiction but seriously? This was just DIRTY! First she, Abby, sleeps with Connor then Brian and back to oh yeah! Connor. Abby loves Conner but then she's always loved Brian and didn't realize it but really she never stooped loving ...more

I'm happy with how the book ended. I think it was the right choice. I just need to pretend there wasn't sex with both brothers and then I'm fine with the whole story.

Violet Duke's writing and characterization is great. She was able to create three dimensional characters with interesting back stories that shaped their choices. The ending was satisfying and I would definitely read more from Duke.

I fell in love with Conner in the first book and was a bit unsettled with the ending. I loved Brian and his daughter, Skylar, but just couldn't imagine Abby not being with Conner. When the second book in this series came out about Brian trying to win Abby, I waited until the third/final book was released so that I could move right on to the conclusion without interruption. So glad I waited, because I would have been majorly stressing! The friendship between Brian and Abby is a powerful bond and ...more

In the third book of Nice Girl to Love - Choosing the Right Man, Abby is going to have to make a choice between brothers Brian and Connor. In Falling For the Bad Boy (book 1), Abby had a month of bliss with Connor, the bad boy brother of her best friend Brian. When the month was over, he let her go...and didn't come after her. Brian, in Falling for the Good Guy (book 2), finally realizes the extent of his feelings for Abby go far beyond the friendship they've always had. Seeing her with his ...more

*Sigh* Everything is now right in the world, because I just got through reading the final book, Choosing the Right Man. While waiting for this book, I was pretty much going crazy (and driving my hubby crazy) as I wondered who Abby would choose! Once I finished the book, the first thing I did was text my hubby telling him: “I KNOW WHO SHE CHOOSES!”

Well, I couldn’t help but wonder how Ms. Duke was going to write a whole book three on answering the question of who Abby chooses, but wowza–what a

Wow, oh my gosh. Well first of all, I loved Connor and Abby in the first book. I could tell Connor was falling in love with her and then at the end, he lets her go and sends her into the arms of his brother. I was like, what?? That is where the second book comes in. Even after loving Connor like I did, I was starting to love Brian and Abby together in this book too. Brian and Abby were just so darn sweet and it looks like she is starting to love him and she has always loved his daughter and then ...more

This is the third and final book in the Nice Girl to Love series and it is fantastic. I enjoyed the first two books very much, however, this story is the icing on the cake. It is so good I read it in one evening because I could not put it down. The writing is top-notch and the richly developed characters are authentic, funny and very likable.

Abby Bartlett is on cloud nine. She is finally a PhD after years and years of hard work and study. In addition to finding a new job, she has another huge

I’m going to admit to reading a review before hand and finding out who Abby ends up with. And I’m going to be honest and say I wasn’t happy with that choice. But it didn’t stop me from reading the book and after I did I was happy it ended the way it did. And I’m not going to be one of those people just because it wasn’t the brother I wanted to leave a bad review as on the whole the book was Awesome.

I felt like I was waiting forever for this book! I mean I needed to know who she was going to choose! Good guy Brian or bad boy Connor. I don't know how Ms. Duke made her decision - I'm just glad I didn't have to! Both guys are amazing and you want to root for both of them. But in the end, the way the story unfolds, you realize only one is her match. As the reader, you end up ok with her choice, even if you were rooting for the

Okay so I have thought long and hard on this review in an effort to not spoil anyone's read with my review. So here goes....

The Final Book - Finally! or is it....?? LOL. This book was hilarious as Book 1 Connor and Book 2 Brian ran the race against each other instead of a tag team. Poor Abby is ran through the ringer as even Mom helps the boys and her bring this to a close and help everyone find their HEA.

The guys are trying to balance the brother code versus knowing this is the woman they love

While I loved the first two books in this Nice Girl To Love series written by Violet Duke, I absolutely-over-the-top-adored this third installment.

In this novel, Abby, a 'nice' girl falls in love with two brothers. Connor is a 'bad boy' who captivates Abby in ways she never knew existed. Brian, his brother, has been Abby's best friend for most of their lives. He is the typical nice guy who says and does the right things at the right moment. Abby also loves and cherishes Brian's daughter, Skylar,

Connor is the infamous bad boy who realizes he is capable of loving and Brian is the best friend who realizes his feelings for Abby have gone beyond friendship. My,my how do you choose?!

Yet another emotional roller coaster I kid you not. I don't know why Violet Duke is doing this to me. I thought Book 1 and 2 were emotional but oh boy book 3 takes the cake. I have no idea how Abby decided between Conner and Brian because I couldn't even decide who I wanted her to end up with. Violet made me love them both and it was just so unfair. I was being pulled in so many directions because Conner loved her and she loved him but so did Brian and what about Skylar?! That little girl wants ...more

This review is for all three of the Nice Girl to Love books.

I'm kind if neutral on the whole love triangle theme. When it is done well I don't mind the drama. These three books included not only a love triangle but a triangle including two brothers. This could have been a train wreck if not done well. Thankfully they were done very well and somehow I found myself rooting for each of the brothers at one time or another. In the first book I loved Connor. In the second book I was all about Brian.

Bittersweet Ending

Such a bittersweet ending with Abby. I love how it all played out. I could tell that Connor was the guy she was loved as more than friends. I know Brian is going be her best friend. Also Skylar is going be friends and family to Abby. Can't wait to see what happens next with Brian and Skylar. Plus from what I read can't wait to learn more about Tessa. ;)

This is the third book in this trilogy and you MUST read books one and two before this one as this is NOT a standalone. Okay, we finished book two yelling WHAT?!?!? and now in book three we have to come to grips if we are team Brian or team Connor and who will Abby choose. This book will take you through twists and turns and emotional highs and lows but we will finally get a happy ending! I definitely recommend this trilogy!

Wow!! I can't express how much I loved this book! Violet Duke has fast become one of my favorite authors and I will never hesitate to purchase one of her books! I was on pins and needles waiting for this 3rd book in the series to see how Violet would work it all out since I loved both Brian and Connor (as did Abby!) and, as I've come to count on, Ms. Duke does not disappoint her readers! Of course it helps that Abby chose the man I wanted her to be with! ((Big Smiles))

"Choosing the Right Man" is the third and final installment in the "Nice Girl to Love" series and we see Abby Sullivan in a quandary... Does she choose the nice guy or the bad boy? With whom will she share her "happily ever after"?

Connor and Brian Sullivan are as close as two brothers can get and would do absolutely anything for each other but if there's one thing that either one wants completely for himself, it's Abby. They're both in love with her...the question is, who is Abby truly in love

OMG the long awaited conclusion to this complex love triangle. i read the back of this book to see who she chose because i just couldnt wait lol.

2 brothers in love with the same girl. One has loved her as a best friend for years and slowly realised that he was in love with her and the other fell in love with her nice girl ways over less than a month period.

This review is for the first three books in the Nice Girl to Love series: Being a new reader to the romance genre, I was checking out various authors before I decided whose books to begin with and to purchase. With good reviews and liking what I read about Violet, I gave her Nice Girl to Love boxed set a test. Well, I think that in this test, Violet scored close to 100 as I see things. As I said, I don't have a lot of previous reading experience with romance books, just a few of mystery and ...more

This is the final book in Violet Duke's Nice Girl To Love trilogy. The first book was Abby and Connor's story which ended with a cliffhanger. Then came book two which was Abby and Brian's story and also ended with a cliffhanger. Now we reach the end of our journey...who will Abby choose?

I loved this book. I couldn't imagine a better ending for this trilogy. The characters have continued to grow and develop throughout the series. With

Okay, so before I get into this, I have to make one thing clear...I have never been a fan of love triangles. Especially when it involves two brothers. With that being said...Violet Duke has completely changed my mind about them. As if the story can't get any better...Connor comes back and he doesn't plan on going down without a fight. But Brian doesn't plan on letting go of Abby so easy. This book is a emotional rollercoaster ride on the path of having to make a choice...between the man she ...more

Damn you Violet Duke for making me a sobbing mess while reading book three of this series!! I have never been so torn when reading a series as I have been with this one. In book one I was absolutely convinced that Connor was the one for Abby. In book two I changed my mind and thought it was Brian who deserved Abby. In book three I was convinced that Violet needed to take a page out of Julia Kent's books and let them just have a happily ever after ménage!!! With that being said since Violet ...more

If you love a sweet romance filled with fun and likeable characters, these books are for you. Each book is pretty short(140-170pgs), so it is a quick and enjoyable read. Great series! Each book was better than the last. These book talks about Huntington's Disease and captured the life of a family in the midst of the disease, it is a heartfelt story that will make you cry along with the characters and laugh with them through the crazy journey that is their life.It was very emotional and of course ...more
