Forever Mine by Erin Nicholas
Oh man! I had been waiting for the release date for this book since I finished the first one. I could not believe my luck when it just so happened to be posted on NetGalley. Some of the perks of being a librarian :)
Readers are first introduced to Maya in the first book of the series, Completely Yours (so good!). I was really looking forward to her story. Nicholas totally delivers on a great story and my expectations are met. And then some. Maya is a totally kick-ass heroine. She was a cop who got injured on the job and rather than work a desk job at the police station, she opens up a martial arts studio. I love that she promotes these kids classes where they get to become superheros. If this was real life, I would totally sign my daughter up. Then there is Alex. He is described as totally swoon worthy, hot and I want to date him!
The chemistry between them is hot. They are kind of opposites. Maya is a total risk taker and jumps into any situation full force. Alex is way more laid back and careful. He has to think things through. He is conflicted about getting into a new relationship because his existing professional and personal life keep him quite busy.
I like all the details about their group of friends. It's like we are totally getting to know them as our friends :) The story just draws you in. Great sex, funny dialogue and geekdom were never so cool as they are in this book. I think I like it so much because I feel like I have a lot in common with Maya. I love science fiction, cosplay and nerding out with some good tv shows. You just don't always find that in contemporary romance. I think that is part of what makes this series unique. Pick this book up when it comes out! Read the first book if you have not read it yet. Totally a weekend read. I LOVED it!
