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

The Bradfords, Book 5

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 really don’t know what I’m going to do if or when this series comes to an end. As I’m finishing a story I cannot wait to start the next. I have honestly loved every story that I’ve read so far that Erin has written. The way all her characters come together in her stories make you love every one of them causing you to want to see what happens next with each one of them. Kevin has been a Paramedic with all his close friends for many years, but never got close to a woman to have a lasting relationship since the breakup with his high school sweetheart fourteen years ago. He straightened out his life and is doing pretty well. In one night his life is going to change drastically and the past is coming back for him. While at work Kevin finds out that his father’s been stabbed with a fork along with his mom being in a fight, but the biggest surprise is he has a half-brother, Drew that is only ten years old that he never knew existed. Drew needs to live with someone for six months while his mother is in rehab, so everyone talks Kevin into being the one to care for him. There is one stipulation, it has to be where Drew lives so he can continue to go to his school and have the least amount of changes as possible. Kevin agrees and moves home to his parents hose with Drew. He has no idea what he’s going to do to take care of him, let alone when he has to work. What else can happen in his life? How about finding out that after thinking your marriage was annulled for fourteen years, you’re still married? Eve Donnelly has loved Kevin for over fourteen years. She even married him, then, was afraid to tell her father, so Kevin left town. She knows they’re still married since she was the one who hadn’t signed the papers. She’s thrilled that he’s back and wants to try to rekindle the love they once shared, no matter what it takes. She offers to help Kevin take care of Drew he is thrilled, what’s better than showing the courts that a preacher’s daughter is a perfect guardian? The thing is Kevin doesn’t know is that after he left her, Eve rebelled against her father and now, she may not be the best role model. As his feelings start to resurface for her Kevin finds out about her past and starts to wonder if it will cause him to lose custody. Does he love Eve enough to try to work on their marriage and to find a way to keep custody of Drew or will he walk away because she no longer shares his beliefs?

What can I say about Just a Kiss? First I can say that I am a total Erin Nicholas fan girl. Complete with squee and stuff! She is one of my auto buy authors - regardless of subject matter and I have read her entire back list. She is one of those writers that superbly craft character relationships, complete with their ups and downs and that keeps me coming back for more. Second I can say that I do not want The Bradford series to end. *sob* Just a Kiss is Kevin's story. Finally. I've been in love with Kevin from the beginning for a few reasons - he's solid, steady, amazingly generous and a positively portrayed Christian man. That's something hard to find outside of inspirational romances. Kevin is strong in his faith and rather than preach and shove things in the faces of those around him, he lives it. He, as his heroine Eve comes to see, walks the walk. He does not judge, offers good advice and is always a supportive shoulder. Someone as wonderful as this totally deserves his HEA, don't you think? Eve and Kevin married the day they graduated from high school and spent less than 36 hours together. He thought their marriage had been annulled and whoopsie...nope! Eve never signed the papers. What follows is explosive sexual chemistry, a brilliant 10-year old half-brother, lies, confusion, longing and some pretty awesome sex. Most of the obstacles in this relationship are emotional and trust issues. There are some outside forces but those are more to amp things up rather than creating the actual problems. I love this in a story. Both Kevin and Eve grow and progress forward in a realistic manner throughout the book. It really is a joy to watch them rediscover each other - as they are now and not how they were 14-years ago. It is also wonderful to see most of the supporting characters come back to add their two cents and support. I found every aspect of this story to be plausible - from Kevin's conversion, Eve's falling away from the faith, their difficulties with each other and their expectations of one another and their eventual HEA. Another win for Erin Nicholas as I wait for her next release!
