One of my favorite things about Erin Nicholas’ Opposites Attract series, is that the heroines are straight up geeks. And I mean that in the best way possible. It’s a fun and refreshing spin on romance.

Maya and Alex meet when Alex comes to one of Maya’s classes. Maya is a martial artist instructor for kids. She makes her classes fun by incorporating super heroes. After Maya got hurt with her last job in law enforcement, she thought this would deb a good way to stay in shape and still h

Forever Mine is the second book in Erin Nicholas' Opposite Attract series and follows retired cop Maya and single dad Alex. Alex needs Maya's help with his daughter, who he only recently found out about. He knows nothing about kids or superheroes, while that seems to be Maya's specialty. So he enlists her help to save the world of a ten year old.

These characters were a great addition to this series, and I really liked getting to know them. From the beginning you co

Maya Goodwin has always lived her life on the edge and without fear for the consequences. When an injury to her arm forced her to give up her job as a police officer Maya took a job teaching martial arts to children. It's at her job that Maya first meets Alex Nolan when he shows up looking to learn more about the arts.

Not too long ago Alex got the surprise of his life, he is the father to an eight year old girl and now he is making it his mission to make up for the lost time in her life. Alex h

I had really enjoyed the previous book of the series, so I was pretty excited to read this one.

I loved love loved Maya and Alex. She's sassy and pushy and seriously kick ass. He's smart and maybe a little cocky and together they're absolutely adorable. Oh, and the chemistry is off the charts.

There are loads of cute, geeky scenes and talks about superheroes and cosplay. It was sweet to see Alex bend over backwards to learn things for Charli. I think the best part was backstory (view spoiler)

Sweet, charming, and heartwarming!!! Erin Nicholas once again has caught my attention with her newest release, Forever Mine which happens to be a beautiful feel good love story between a single dad and his daughter’s martial arts teacher.


With palpable chemistry and charming characters, Nicholas allowed her readers to feel the love and connection that was brewing between Alex and Maya. When Alex needed all the help he can get with his d

Forever Mine was so freaking cute! I constantly had a smile on my face while reading this book. This book put me in such a great mood! Forever Mine was fluffy, romantic, and a lot of fun.

The couple in this book was fantastic. I ship Maya and Alex SO HARD. Even though they seemed like they might be opposites, they worked so well together! Maya was super sassy, which lead to some hilarious banter between her and Alex. Their chemistry was palpable, and I ate it up. The author did a gr

Seriously people, if you haven’t started Erin Nicholas’ Opposites Attract series, you are missing out on some fantastic storytelling. I loved the first book in this series, Completely Yours, but I loved Forever Mine even more. Leave it to this author to take a serious genetic disorder and turn it into a romance plot line that not only works, but gives this book a realistic feel and educates at the same time.

Forever Mine is a contemporary romance that made me squee and made me sigh. It’s a celebration of geek culture, of women who love comics, and of cosplay. Sometimes I read a book and I love it so much that I basically can’t even describe how much I love it – I just shove it into people’s hands and shout “OMG READ IT RIGHT NOW!”

It’s a wonderful escape, like a vacation for your brain. I say that in a totally non-patronizing way too. I’m not doing the whole

FOREVER MINE, the second book in Erin Nicholas's latest series is every bit as wonderful as the first book, Completely Yours. This new series, Opposites Attract, has definitely become my favorite which is saying a lot because I'm a huge fan of the world and characters she's created in her Sapphire Falls series. But the Opposites Attract series goes to just a bit deeper level both in story line and character portrayal. There's still the same humor and witty dialogue, the same steam, and ALWAYS a ...more

OK, this was a fantastic addition to this series!! And no, you most definitely do NOT have to read the first book to enjoy this one, but it's super adorable as well, so I definitely recommend it.

I can honestly say that I loved both characters, and thought they both had some really unique aspects to their personalities, and were really well developed.

There are books that just get it right. And, this one is one of them. They tell a romance that you slide into, that feels good as you are reading it, that makes you want to turn the next page, to keep the Kindle open, to not go to sleep just yet. I think anyone who reads a lot knows this feeling, that enjoyment of just escaping into a book, to read something that you don't want to put down.

From the beginning, Maya and Alex have chemistry. And, the

This was an amazing book! I spent entire time sighing, awww-ing, and laughing. There might have been a discreet tear dropping down my face at the end too. Alex and Maya were so wonderful together and separately, I wish they were my real friends so I could have seen them fall in love in real life. Rachel was great, Charli was a sweetie, and Maya's friends? I need their stories NOW. They better have stories, Ms. Nicholas. Your dedicated fans (like me) will demand them.

LOVED this story!! Alex is deliciously yummy, I think we all need one like him. Good father, doctor, sexy, protective. Yep, delicious. Finding out he's a father to a nine year old daughter could have thrown him over the edge but he took it in stride, embraced it, and now he'll do whatever he can to give her a good life.

Forever Mine is one of Erin Nicholas' best work and I've loved everything I've read of hers. This was a truly emotional, heartwarming story that touched my heart deeply and it was more than a love story between Alex and Maya, it was also a powerful story about a father trying to make a connection with his daughter. I totally loved Alex and Maya together and I adored the fact that Alex wanted to put Charli's needs first at all cost no matter how misguided that was. I loved that Maya did everythin ...more

Forever Mine however touched me deeply in a different way that seems to need more than "I loved it!"

I enjoyed the previous book in this series and how the author made geeky look so sexy and enticing but I think she has outdone herself with this one. FOREVER MINE is a celebration of relationships - between a man and a woman, between a parent and a child, between friends, between co-parents - and was so heartwarming and uplifting.

Nothing could be cuter than a father trying to connect with his daughter by learning the things that she loves and that's what makes Alex Nolan such a sweet fa

Favorite Quotes:

She had never been this wrapped up in how a guy looked. It was as if she couldn’t stop looking at him. And thinking dirty thoughts. Was this what it was like to be shallow? She didn’t mind it as much as she would have thought.

I’m kind of hating that we’re on the phone right now… That’s a throw-you-over-my-shoulder thing to say, Maya.

You’re the epitome of girl power…

… he would never deserve her. But he was going to spend his life trying to.

this was a feel good story. The two main characters are both on journeys. One to accept that there are limitations when injured and that love forgives and pushes to the limits. The other to open to others and rediscover passion,love and themselves. To also connect with his daughter.
Maya and Alex are great. Maya is bubbly and infectious. her love of comics and the superhero concept is great and so is her attitude on life. I love how she doesn’t let things

This is the second book in the series - and a real treat. We get to see friends made in the first story, and it is Maya, the feisty ex-cop's turn to experience love and romance.

There is a lot to commend this book - it deals with a number of difficult issues, but also a couple of very simple ones. Alex has been compartmentalising his life and keeping safe, until he sees Maya and immediately recognises the attraction and

LOVED Maya & Alex in this story, Forever Mine, book 2 in Erin Nicholas' Opposites Attract series....
Adding to the dynamic was Alex's daughter, Charli. This story dealt with some real life tough situations (characters living with hemophilia), and Erin does very well with these sometimes heavy subjects. Maya was dear to me, as she is an ex cop, hurt in the line of duty, but that doesn't let her disabilities keep her down, and she continues to help and serve others. Alex is lovable guy, who is

I'm always on the lookout for books featuring smart heroines. The Opposites Attract series is about a trio of Lady Nerds, each with their own geeky interest. Each book stands on its own so you can read them in any order you want. Forever Mine is Maya's story.

Maya is all about cosplay, martial arts, and super heroes. I could care less about these things- much like Alex- but Maya's enthusiasm is contagious. She's spunky and passionate about her interests, as well as the people she loves. She initi

This is the second book in the Opposites Attract series. And when it comes to Maya and Alex, I don't think you could find two people that were any less alike. Maya is a risk taker. She usually has a good reason for taking the risk but she thinks of others before she thinks of her own safety. Her career as a cop ended when she was trying to rescue a dog. Alex always plays it safe. But then he has good reason for not taking risks. Now more so then ever, Alex needs to show his newly discovered daug ...more
