The man known for one night stands!!

What a beginning to the Just Everyday Hero's: Night Shift about the Dixon family, their friends and a continuation from the Day Shift!!
Great introduction to the Dixon family
This book was the perfect mixture of sweet and hot. I thought the way Amanda and Ryan first got together was hilarious and enjoyed watching the many stages that their relationship went through - it reminded me of the song about taking two steps forward and two steps back. Ryan wasn’t a guy I would have picked out of a crowd for Amanda, but it turned out, with the right woman, those qualities she needed in a partner were within him after all. I loved the way he supported her and understood her. Amanda was a character who I emphasized with completely. The need to be a good role model and protector for her siblings, oftentimes requiring her to stifle her own needs, is something most older siblings can relate to.
One thing I especially love about Erin Nicholas is her ability to create a world and the characters in it is such a way that EVERY character is someone you want to know more about. There were so many amazing supporting characters, including Amanda’s siblings and Ryan’s co-workers, in this book and I can’t wait to read their stories as well.
This is the first in the series of Night Shift: Just Everyday Heroes by Erin Nicholas. This is the love story of Ryan and Amanda.
Ryan Kaye is a paramedic who every woman loves. He is a serial dater, but never one for making a commitment. Amanda Dixon is not looking to be one of those women. She has too much to do, too many other people counting on her and no time for playing around.
Of course, fate, in the form of her three sisters, steps in. Let Amanda walk the wild side one weekend. Let her live the life of Emma, her party girl sister and walk in the other ones shoes.
In walks Ryan and he is there to save the day, or more precisely Amanda from a bad date. But he wants the night he never actually had with her. What follows is a series of close encounters, hearts opening and eventually healing. Can enough of it take place to secure Amanda’s place in Ryan’s future? Can he commit and can Amanda let someone else take charge? Heartwarming family story. Can’t wait for the next one…
