Just a Kiss - Erin Nicholas Title: Just a Kiss

Series: Bradfords bk 5

Author: Erin Nicholas

Genre: Contemporary

She’s unforgettable…and that’s exactly what got him into trouble the first time.

As a paramedic in the busiest ER in the city, Kevin Campbell knows there’s no such thing as a typical night—but this one definitely has them all beat.

His dad’s been stabbed with a fork, his mom’s been in a fight, and it’s all because of a younger half-brother he never knew existed. And if that’s not enough, everyone seems to agree that Kevin should take the boy in for the six months during his mom’s rehab. Oh, and the annulment he thought he got fourteen years ago? Never went through.

It’s really too bad he gave up drinking and swearing.

Eve Donnelly is shocked to see Kevin again, but not surprised they’re still married. After all, she was the one who refused to sign the annulment papers. Now that she’s got Kevin back in her life, nothing else matters. Not even her past fourteen less-than-virtuous years. In fact, the truth about her life without Kevin isn’t even worth bringing up. She hopes.

When Eve offers to help Kevin with his younger brother, a sweet, devout preacher’s daughter seems like an answered prayer. Besides, things can’t get more complicated. Can they?

Product Warnings
Contains a bad boy gone good, a good girl who knows all about being bad, and lots of hot, sweet, so-this-is-how-married-couples-do-it sex.

I have been a fan of this series ever since the first book, and Kevin has been a character I have always wanted to know more about. Can I just say that his book was very much worth the wait.

Kevin is one of the good guys. He has dedicated his life to helping others. So when he's tapped to help out the brother he never knew he had, and because his dad can't acknowledge him it's up to Kevin to take care of him. On top of all that, he discovers that the marriage he thought he'd annulled years ago was never annulled.

The very last thing he expected to feel when he sees Eve is lust and a need to have her back in his life.

Eve has been waiting for this moment for fourteen years. Ever since she refused to sign the anullement papers, and she isn't going to waste anytime going after what she really wants. Kevin back in her life.

Oh the sparks between these two are hot enough to set your e-reader on fire. Add in the complicated past between the two of them, and where they both are in their lives and we have a story that keeps you plugged in.

I have to say I honestly wasn't sure how Erin was going to handle these two. Especially considering how Eve wants nothing to do with religion and church, and Kevin is all about religion and church. And I think she handled it very well. It so easy to have a book where a character is super religious be very annoying and preachy and Kevin wasn't. He is a guy who simply lives his beliefs, and struggles with the things he has to give up to be Christian.

Over all I really enjoyed this story. I felt like Eve and Kevin balanced each other out, and made each other better.

I do have one complaint, and that is that there wasn't a lot of interaction between Kevin and Drew. I would have loved to see more between them.

If you have liked the other books in this series and wondered about Kevin then you won't want to miss this one.
