Let me warn you, this is one of those books. You know the ones.

Erin Nicholas. Seriously? How do you do it? Just when I think it can't get any better than the last, she writes something like She's the One. She writes a story where I fall in love with the hero and want to be that heroine.
Ryan and Amanda are great. Ryan grew up the son of a free spirit. Everlasting love just wasn't in his vocabulary. Healthy living and healthy fun was how he rolled. Everyone has a good time and when the thrill was gone, no one got hurt. That is until he meets Amanda. Amanda is the mature sister, the responsible sister. Ryan was just a fantasy. She never believed he would be interested in her or any woman for more than fling. A slip of the tongue has Amanda living out those fantasies and so much more! This story had me laughing, crying, yelling (yes, yelling), wide eyed, and breathing a sigh of relief. I Love That!
Erin Nicholas is an amazing author and her stories captivate me immediately. I love that she can pull me into the story and make me feel like I am right there witnessing it with my own eyes. I love the fact that when I read her stories there is a flow and ease that makes her stories a pleasure and comfort to read. I highly recommend this book and all of her books.

Rating: 3.5 stars In She's the One (Counting on Love #1) by Eri
Rating: 3.5 stars
In She's the One (Counting on Love #1) by Erin Nicolas, Dr. Amanda Dixon is the director of clinical education at St. A's, a local hospital. She is sexy and smart and as the oldest sister in the family, the mother hen to her three sisters and brother. Conner Dixon, Amanda's brother, is the oldest Dixon, and took it upon himself to seriously look out for her and her sisters when their dad passed away years ago. Amanda presents herself as a professional, controlled young woman, but she yearns to be wild.
Paramedic and running back Ryan Kaye lives on the wild-side. Women are naturally drawn to him because he has a special charisma that just draws them in. He has a lot of experience with the opposite sex but has never been in a long-standing relationship. An unintentional brawl brings Amanda and Ryan together and that's when the fireworks begin. However, Ryan and Conner are very close friends, and Conner has made it clear that he does not want any of his friends dating any of his sisters. Thus, a relationship of any kind is challenging to say the least.
Ryan brings out Amanda's wild-side while Amanda causes Ryan to think about a long-term relationship. They are hot and heavy for each other, in addition to being extremely compatible. Naturally life interrupts their short-term bliss and they have to work hard if they want a future together.
This book has been on my TBR list since it was published a couple of months ago. The cover is hot and the reviews are really good, so I was super excited when I got the opportunity to review it for HJ. I wanted to like it, since I have truly enjoyed some of the Erin's other works, but I did not care for it. Getting through the first half was difficult and I found myself continually checking for how many pages were left to read. There are many characters introduced in the beginning of the story and I had to reread the first chapter to make sure I understood who was who in conjunction with their occupation.
On a positive note, the sex scenes are hot and left me panting; there is nothing like reading an Erin Nicholas love scene. I especially enjoyed the wittiness and banter of Amanda's sister Emma. Although She's the One was not my cup of tea, I plan on reading the next book in the series because I would like to know more about Amanda's three sisters, and the next book focuses on Amanda's sister Isabelle.
