The story of second chance romance always be one of my favorite. And I love the story between Dillon and Kit. I especially adored Dillon determination to win Kit back. He is fierce and unwaver on his conquest. When both of them stranded on the secluded cabin during snow storm, both of them forced to break down their own emotion ...more

Only that I didn’t quite know what to feel about their complicated history that started in high school which Nicholas outlined, seeing as I was expecting (and perhaps hoping for) more of a straight-up competitive ‘hate’ to love s ...more
Taking Chances #3
Super sweet romance! Snowed in with a hot sexy crush that you have major chemistry with. Sign me up ;)
This was book 3 in this series about 3 different romances in small town of Chance. Best friends who have all found love ❤️
Thanks NetGalley for the arc in exchange for my honest review.
I'm glad I stuck with this - a cut above most CRs I've read recently.
It starts slowly, with the set-up hammered home just a little too often. Yes, we get that Kit and Dillon (doctors in a small Nebraskan town) are personally and professionally at odds, while still lusting after each other. But the set-up's delivered with humour against a convincing hospital background, and Kit's kick-ass doctor is worth cheering on. Though it's pretty clear, as soon as the words "snow" & "isolated hous ...more
This was such a quick book to read. Very entertaining with a very sexy romance. I loved that the characters have a lot of history and you can tell from the first page. This was an opposites attract situation and I love those kinds of romances. The ending was a bit abrupt. I would have liked it if the book was just a little bit longer to wrap up things nicer but besides that, this book was a solid...more
Erin Nicholas once again gives us a fun, super sexy story that warms the heart and gives us all hope for out HEA. Love her writing style and I ado ...more
This was a small town, enemies to lovers, second chance romance. It is the 3rd in the series, and while there are characters from the 1st 2 books (it's a small town romance, it would be odd if there weren't) you don't need to have read the other books to enjoy this one...although I do recommend them.
Yeah, there was a lot going on in this one, and this doesn't always work for me. In fact, if you have read my reviews, one of the main issues I have i ...more
Erin Nicholas offers up a spicy, fun, and entertaining romance in Turned Up, the third book in her Taking Chances series. Rivals since childhood, Kit Derby, the town’s resident psychologist, and Dillon Alexander, one of the town’s physicians, explore a relationship that neither one can really define after years of one-upmanship, a teenaged tryst that left them both feeling things they had no idea how to handle, and a few other encounters that left them off balance. Packed with emotion, along wit ...more
My favorite. Emotional, and heart warming.
When Kit Derby and Dillon Alexander were kids they were competitive. Now as adults even more. Both in the medical field he an ER doctor, and her being the town physiatrist.
But when she happens to be first on the scene of an accident. She has to do what she can.
Soon that involves delivery a baby.
A shocking turn of events puts them overnight at her grandmothers house. It was there intention of just looking i ...more
I received a copy from Thomas Allen & Sons in exchange for an honest review.
I love Erin Nicholas. I read her books from Forever Romance last year and fell in love with her works because she always writes the best small town romances that make your heart flutter and your stomach do little flips. Turned Up is no exception. I was 10 pages in when I knew this book was at least a 4 out of 5 stars read because of how it was written. The sexual tension from the characters were pal ...more
Dillon Alexander and Derby have been arch rivals since kindergarten. He's the big bad ex-Marine, all-round celebrity emergency doctor who has recently returned to be an ER doctor in his home town of Chance, Nebraska. She's the local psychiatrist, essential when your small town is in the tornado alley and suffers more tornadoes than anywhere el ...more
Turned Up is exactly the type of book I'm looking for when I'm in the mood for a rivals-to-lovers romance.
Kit Derby and Dillon Alexander have been rivals since the third grade. They always argue, always strive to be better than the other, and as a result they both have become two of the most "type A, overachieving, kick-ass [people]" (Bree, Kit's best friend's words, not mine). Now both are back in their hom ...more

I struggled with this last book because the internal conflict seemed a bit weak to me. Same basic story as the first two, but without any year jerking moments which saved the first two books. Still, I am glad I read this last zone in the series. Happy ☺reading 📚!
Wow! Turned Up is an amazing book. I loved every aspect of this book. Turned Up has a lot of heart swoon moments. Just wow. Erin Nicholas is an amazing author. Erin Nicholas has all the qualities I find amazing in an author. Erin Nicholas always delivers with her books. Her books are a breath of fresh air.
In Turned Up we finally get to read Dylan Alexander's and Kit Derby's story. Let me just say together they are a powerhouse. Kit is the town p ...more

I have read several books by Erin Nicholas and none of them have ever disappointed me. They have just the right amount of story, steam and sex!
I absolutely love chapter 12 and never dreamt the book would take that kind of unexpected turn.
I'm looking forward to future stories about their weddings! ...more
