How do you fall out of love with a man who’s all in?

Counting on Love, Book 2

Isabelle Dixon never should have said yes to that first date, but she couldn’t resist Shane Kelley’s larger-than-life personality. Except now Shane seems determined to make their no-strings fling into something more.

If she thought dating Shane was hard work, breaking up is proving to be much harder. Especially since she’s planning on making some major life changes that don’t include staying out all night, Jell-O shots, and a sex toy shop punch card. She needs a restful cabin getaway—alone—to gather her thoughts. And the strength to finally end things for good.

Shane has always prided himself on being the good-time guy. Exactly Isabelle’s type…or so he thought. Yet ever since he suggested her moving in, she’s been pulling back. Thing is, Shane does everything with gusto—including falling in love.

He’s not about to let her get away that easily. Even if it means chasing her heart down a crazy road to prove that no matter what life throws at them, they make a damned good team.

Product Warnings
Contains a strange road trip with several weird tourist stops, some hot sex in a car wash, and two people who are just crazy enough to be perfect for one another.


My Thoughts

My name is Crystal and I'm addicted to anything Erin Nicholas writes. There. I said it. Now you all know I'm hopelessly at Erin's mercy. I'm pretty sure she likes seeing people like me who are big fans squirm when she posts those tantalizing excerpts and sneak peaks into her upcoming titles. I for one am a pretty patient person unless it comes to a book I want to read. It's just not possible and if any of you have ever read an Erin Nicholas book, you know what I'm so impatient about.

I knew that Isabelle and Shane were together in Shes's the One, but I wasn't sure how I would feel about them having their own book. I absolutely loved their book! I even like it more than the first. Is that bad? Don't get me wrong, I loved She's the One but It Takes Two was a little more emotionally driven. Something big has happened in Isabelle's life that requires her to make some changes to her lifestyle. So naturally, fun-loving, energetic Shane has to go. It should be easy right? Wrong.

Even though it all started out fun and games, well, it still is, Shane loves Isabelle. Plain and simple. He loves her so much that he wants her to move in. He just doesn't understand what her issue is with it. He knows she loves him so why the act of not wanting it? There are lots of questions on his part but as readers, we find out what's really going on. Don't worry, I'm not going to ruin what the big secret is but it's a big deal. It also has you reading as fast as you can to see which way the story goes. I know I was rooting for Isabelle and Shane together. They just fit perfeclty!

And talking about fitting perfectly...their chemistry is off the wall. These two go at it at every chance they can get. I mean, hello! Two words - CAR WASH. Oh! And I also have one word - Khalua. Spicy scenes add even more to this already fantastic story! I can't get enough! :)

  1. A car wash, huh? That sounds...interesting. lol I haven't tried her books yet but will keep an eye out. Sounds excellent :)

  2. I LOVE her books! She is one of the first few authors I really read when I got my Kindle in 2010. I have read all but 1 book of hers but will be rectifying that problem very soon. Lol. They are awesome!
