What’s the worst thing that could happen to two commitment-phobes? A one-night-stand set-up date—that ends in the ER instead of the bedroom.
Now the girl who prides herself on not needing anyone for anything is stuck with a guilt-ridden playboy determined to take care of her until her wrist heals. In spite of his one-night-only rule with women.
But hey, there’s nothing wrong with making the best of being temporarily stuck together, is there? Because the key word is still temporarily.
I’m still so happy Karen White brought this new to audio series to my attention. I am loving the sweet, sexy, funny stories of these kind people. We see only a bit of the first couple here and a bit of their circle of friends and co-workers. The series seems to have two names The Bradfords and Everyday Heroes. The stories revolve around the Bradford family, their community center, doctors, nurses and paramedics.
Just Like That is about Sam Bradford. He is a paramedic and the middle Bradford child. He is the only male child between two sisters. He doesn’t commit to anything. He only has one night stands. So is he a bad guy? Nope. He’s oddly more committed to people than he would like to think.
Dannika has moved here recently (Omaha?) and her sisters are here. Based on her history, she wants to be independent and able to do anything and everything for herself. She doesn’t want to need anyone or ever be a burden to someone who loves her.
These two both have issues from the family history. It takes time to work through their feelings. I loved this just as much as the first book. It made me laugh, pant, swoon and cry – all the feelings! I can’t wait for more of these people. Next up is Just My Type at the end of December.
Karen White really handled Dannika’s voice so well. Dannika is strong and confidant, a whole different ball game from the internal debates in the previous book. I loved how definite she sounded, even when she is figuring things out in her mind. I enjoyed her voice for Sam also. The different voices for each character, were well performed. I listened at 1.5x speed which is something new lately for me, but it worked well.

I’m so happy this series is continuing to not only hold up but be so enjoyable! Definitely putting on my TBR. Excellent review, Anne.
Thank you! I don’t know how I missed out on this series as ebooks. I enjoy Erin Nicholas and these are awesome. But I’m glad to have it on audio. Karen White makes it better! I’m starting to listen to the 3rd one today.
Love Karen White’s narrations!
Thanks for the review!
I’m already well into the next one – Just My Type – as I peruse new soup recipes. It releases Dec 25, 2018 but I plan to do my review for next weekend.
This is completely new to me , but I do like this narrator! Awesome find.
This is book 2. I’m listening to #3 now. I wouldn’t have found it without Karen White. It’s perfect for me too as I’ve always liked Erin Nicholas. It’s funny and kind of sassy. I really like the connection of the group of friends and how well they know each other.
Ah yes it’s nice to have a novel like that. I think it’s the first time I see it.
Well you could give it a try. I have only listened to the audios but I’m loving them.
Love audiobooks and I love the 911 tv series so I’ll have to check this one out since it has paramedics.
I’ll warn you that although it is about people working at the hospital and a paramedic team, there isn’t very much about the actual work. It’s more about the people and their relationships. The second book has the most EMT type stuff. The first one has more hospital ER stuff. The 3rd one I’m listening to now, has none of the medical team stuff at all.
I’m not familiar with Erin Nicholas but I do like the premise of this one. And it sounds like audio might be the way to go. Glad you shared this one! 🙂
I like her books. I started with a geeky series where many of the people worked at a video game developer. Opposites Attract. Then I read her Billionaires in Blue Jeans series (less realistic) I have not read much in her Sapphire Falls series or her new NOLA based one. This series was written in 2010 but is just now on audio and I am loving it. I really appreciate her ability to create realistic, likeable characters with a well connected group of family / friends. Thanks for visiting.
I haven’t read Erin Nicholas before but this series is sounding really good. I will have to look for Karen White’s narration as well.
I like Erin Nicholas. She’s from Iowa, where I grew up. This series is set near Omaha NE.
Karen White narrates many of the Jill Shalvis books I love. She also narrated Stud in the Stacks by Pippa Grant which was a surprise hit for me this fall. Nobody does an emotional, indecisive woman as well. But she can do lots of other characters too.
LOL You had me at the opening. Talk about worst first date! This does sound like a fun series.
These are really funny and awesome. I just finished the 3rd one today. They also have people with real feelings based on their experiences and it’s easy to say they should just get over their hangup but that’s hard to do. I’ve come to care about these characters.
This does sound like a good series and I adore Karen’s narration. But I had so many titles on my “tbl” list that I passed – for now… maybe later in 2019! Thanks for the review.
My audio ARCs are out of control but I couldn’t resist and I’m so glad I am listening to these. They are fun but there are also real personal growth of the characters, characters I like.
