"Geeky has never been so sexy"(Carly Phillips) in this cosplay romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling author of Boys of the Bayou series.
Maya Goodwin doesn't believe in holding back. Ever. As a cop, she never hesitated to throw herself into harm's way to save someone. Even after an injury on the job forces her to retire, she's not afraid to keep risking it all to get the life she wants. With a new career teaching martial arts to kids already underway, she's looking forward to the future - and taking a chance on the unbelievably hot Dr. Alex Nolan.
Maya - daring and spontaneous - is the exact opposite of what Alex always thought he wanted. But when a nine-year-old daughter he never knew existed shows up on his doorstep, Maya is the one who helps them hold it together. With love on the line, will the guy who's always played it safe be willing to take the biggest risk of all?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Erin Nicholas celebrates geek culture in this upbeat, sexy romance. Looking to connect with his ten-year-old daughter, staid doctor Alex Nolan reaches out to cosplayer Maya Goodwin for a crash course on comics and fangirls. We identified with Maya and her love of superheroes (we've been known to crush on Captain America, too). And we loved the sweetness of this story, which is a perfect escape.

An adorably sassy story! It's funny, it's heartwarming and it's steamy in all the right places! It's always a nice dose of reality when an author tackles a topic that many know very little about and weaves a story in such a fashion that you leave more knowledgeable. I really enjoyed seeing the familiar faces in the series again, and meeting the new characters. Fun story!
Feisty go-getter Maya Goodwin is always good for telling it like it is and going for what she wants out of life. She might have had a career ending injury that cut her life as a cop short, but she didn't let that stop her. She loves the studio she opened up to teach kids imagination and martial arts! It's a blast to interact with them and see them bring out new sides of themselves!
Dr. Alex Nolan has always lived his life on the cautious side. He doesn't take chances, and he holds himself back from the crowd. He's not one to reach out and grab what he wants, so for him to feel drawn to Maya the second he lays eyes on her is very out of character for him. He recently learned that he has a 10 year old daughter, and he's desperate for a way to connect with her. Maya happens to be big on certain things that she's a big fan of, so he sets out to get her to help him win over his daughter. Could a daredevil and a cautious doctor ever wind up being a perfect match?
Sexy Dad Alert!!!
There is nothing sexier in this world than a man doing everything possible to be a good dad. This is a fun, sexy, drawing on the the emotions opposites attract romance with the added bonus of having a great family bond to it.
Dr. Alex Nolan is hot hot hot with his whit and charm but what puts him over the top of uber sexy is his need to bond with the almost 10 year old daughter he never knew he had. It is this very need that puts him straight in the path of one sexy, talented and smart Maya Goodwin. What neither of them expected was to fall hard and fast. Loved every heart pounding, action packed, fun fill turn in this journey.
Many Types of Love!
Love comes in many forms. Erin's writing of this book shows the many dimensions of the word "love". Emotions play a big part of the story of a young daughter, Charli, her mother, Rachel, Alex, her father, and a new martial arts instructor named Maya. The story of Charli & her father finding each other, plus dealing with the different forms of the disease, hemophilia, is so touching. Their common ground is "Super Heroes" & learning to deal with the disease. Finding one's self & acknowledging what is important in your life, makes the book even more meaningful. Wish I could give it more than 5 Stars! Loved it!!!!
