"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.
Maya Goodwin lives life without restraint, passionately throwing herself into work, play, and love. Even when an arm injury halts her career as a police officer, she keeps pushing to get what she wants. Dr. Alex Nolan, a renowned expert in genetic disorders, is never reckless , but with Maya, he discovers his wilder side. At first he wants Maya to teach him about superheroes and martial arts so that he can bond with his newfound daughter, Charli, but as he gets to know Maya, Alex realizes life is messy and can't be kept in compartments. With Maya's help, Alex shows Charli that even with hemophilia she can have fun, as long as she is careful. Nicholas successfully weaves facts about hemophilia into conversations without being overly preachy. At its heart, this contemporary romance is about families the family of friends that Maya has assembled and the family Alex is trying to put together with Charli and her mother and how the two blend together. This fun and flirty contemporary romance is a fresh and engaging take at the opposites-attract trope, with a lovable cast.

Love this series
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.
