Diamonds and Dirt Roads (Billionaires in Blue Jeans, #1) by Erin Nicholas

A pretend relationship…within a pretend relationship.

Attorney Evan Stone knows every crazy stipulation in billionaire Rudy Carmichael’s will. After all, he wrote it. And he’s determined to make sure each one is fully met by Rudy’s triplet daughters. Even if that means dating the workaholic CEO, Ava. Or pretending to at least. And even if it means resisting the so-right-for-him-she’s-totally-wrong party girl, Cori.

Cori’s only got three things on her to do list from her dad:

  • Move to Bliss, Kansas.
  • Run his pie shop with her sisters for a year.
  • No dating. For six months.

But stepping in for her sister when it’s clear that Ava and Evan aren’t fooling anyone with their “romance” isn’t really dating. And falling for her sister’s pretend boyfriend while pretending to be her sister…well, that’s ridiculous. No matter how real things feel whenever she and Evan are together.


Billionaires in Blue Jeans

Not your typical billionaire romances...

A tough corporate CEO, a nerdy research scientist, and a globe-trotting party girl walk into a conference room…


Where the sisters, Ava, Brynn, and Cori, find out they have been named co-heirs to their father’s multi-billion dollar conglomerate. Whether they want it or not.


But they also inherit a list of conditions that have to be met...

Triplet daughters of a recently deceased billionaire have to follow his will to the letter to get their inheritance. So...they move to Bliss, Kansas and take on his 'rules'. They've completed Rule# 1, which was move to Bliss. Rule #2 is to run Rudy's pie shop (WHAT??). Rule #3 is different for each daughter. Book #1 is Cori and Evan's story, although it didn't begin that way! Cori, the 'party girl' of the trio cannot date anyone for six months. Ava her workaholic triplet sister must date someone from Bliss for six months. Since Evan is on the triplets side and is the attorney that wrote the ironclad will for their father Rudy, Evan and Ava decide to 'date'. One problem, Cori and Evan are attracted to each other, very attracted to each other! Trying to find loopholes around their father's will, trying to get Evan to help. Cori, trying to ONLY do the accounting for the pie shop when she LOVES to bake and is quite good at it and trying to watch her sister 'date' the man she is rapidly falling for, keeps this book moving right along. Small town romance at its finest.

Whipped cream and sprinkles! I freakin LOVE this new series! It has all the normal sparks, sizzle and sexy Ms Nicholas is known for but with the added fun and madness of a crazy family will and triplets! Evan is torn between the Rudi he knew, the Rudi the girls knew, the crazy stipulations of the will, what his head tells him he should do and the crazy attraction he just can't resist.....and really doesn't want to resist.....does he? I love Cori, she may be the fun triplet but she is also the one who looks out for other people: her sisters, her co-workers, the 'old guys', Evan, everyone - even when they don't realise it, but no matter how 'fun' she is she lacks self confidence and self belief and that is all down to Rudi. Can Evan show her the Cori he sees, convince her that his Cori is the real Cori - whipped cream and sprinkles are good but she doesn't need them! I loved every page of this book, read it in one sitting and cannot wait for the second one due out on 10th April.

Wow I love this new series! Rudy trusted him with his three triplet daughters inheritance. Ava, brynn, and cori are all so different. Evan was Rudy’s best friend in Bliss and the towns lawyer. The girls each had a plan to follow for a year. Can they handle a year in a small town or will someone mess up?!

I will never look at Bacon and Nutella the same away again... Loved this crazy fun romantic twist on classic billionaire falls in love with a small town journey. Adore Bliss, Kansas and all the interesting charters we get to know during the course of this adventure. Rudy Carmichael left this world with billions in the bank, a thriving business and more than a few regrets. He has some crazy conditions on the inheritance that he leaves his can't be more different triplets. Attorney Evan Stone is the man he trusts with this idea to help his girls find what they truly need to be happy. Along with his life time best friends Parker and Noah they are willing to do anything to help Ava, Brynn and Cori. I laughed, cried and cheered. Looking forward to my next visit to Bliss.

I have loved every series by EN so I was beyond excited for this new series! This first book in the Billionaires in Blue Jeans series has completely drawn me in. Triplets Ava, Brynn, and Cori have to move to Bliss, Kansas in order to fulfill the terms of their father's will. The terms couldn't be crazier and I loved every second of these sisters looking for loopholes and trying their hardest to step into roles that are completely out of their comfort zones. This first book in the series focuses on Cori, the youngest and funnest of the triplets, and Evan, their father's lawyer who wrote the will. Everything about these two is fun but even more than that, they're loyal, caring, and all around awesome. I'm really looking forward to the rest of this series!! I can't wait for Ava!!

Such a wonderful book!!! I loved every word. Rudy Carmichael really did his triplet daughters in. To benefit from their trust, he made stipulations on all 3. Stipulations that really tried them. For the girls... they had to move to Bliss and live there for a year. Ava had to be the chief baker...getting her out of her comfort zone as she really didn't know the first thing about baking pies. And she had to date 1 guy seriously for 6 months. For Cori, she had to be the behind the scenes girl...doing all the financial stuff and showing a commitment to the shop. And no dating for 6 months. For Brynn...the shy introvert...she had to be the face of the shop. She was the one who had to be front and center for all to see...bringing her out to deal with the customers. And she was to date 6 guys in 6 months. Sounds easy enough. Enter Evan stone...the lawyer who is handling the trust. Evan thinks he has come up with the best solution to Ava's date one guy problem. He was going to pretend to be her boyfriend for those 6 months. Foolproof? Maybe it was...until Cori came into the picture. With all her crazy ideas and ways...Evan soon found himself falling for her. To make matters even stickier...Cori had to fill in for Ava on a few occasions and pretend to be her. I am loving this new series and these new characters. I so can't wait until the next one releases. Job well done!

What a wonderful start to a new series by author Erin Nicholas. The sisters, triplets learn that they have to all sort of disappear to a small town in Kansas for a year to make ...pies. What a well written and at times extremely soul touching but yet funny book. I love how Erin Nicholas has the ability to reach into my past and touch a little bit... Adding it to her stories. It is like she know me personally, which she does not, and finds she needs to showcase my flaws and fix me. These sisters, like so many of us ( whether by blood or not) have issues as well as their strengths. Some were expected and others were happy surprises. I invite you to sit back, grab some crispy bacon, a jar of Nutella and just enjoy some Bliss.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is the story of 3 triplet sisters, Cori, Ava and Brynn. Their rich, eccentric father has died and for them to inherit at all they much follow some rules he set forth before he died. That is where the hero, Evan comes into this story. He was Rudy's lawyer and he is supposed to make the sisters follow the rules to inherit. This is Cori's story. She is the globetrotting, anti commitment and fun triplet and her and Evan hit it off in a BIG way. But one of her conditions is no dating. Evan has just slept with an old friend and rumors are rampant so to combat that he decides he should fake date Ava, because she is supposed to date a guy for 6 months as part of her condition. To be honest I liked the premise of the story. But the reality was kinda hard to swallow. For one I HATE the love triangle around sisters. I find it kinda gross. Second, I did not like hearing how days before Evan slept with his old friend and their fun and games. Lastly, Evan is the one who is supposed to make sure the sisters follow the rules and he proposes this fake dating. So it did not put him in a good light. Despite those things I did enjoy the story and that is because I loved Cori. She was a wonderful character and I really enjoyed getting to know her and her sisters. While I did not love this story, I would love to read more in this series.

This highly entertaining, sweet, and super sexy small town romance is book one in the Billionaires in Blue Jeans series and it features Evan and Cori but also introduces us to Cori’s sisters, Ava and Brynn and Evan's best friends, Parker and Noah. This story has it all! A set of beautiful billionaire triplets with completely different personalities and three handsome best friends who all run different businesses in Bliss, Kansas. The sisters are in Bliss to fulfill the requirements of their father’s will. All three are to run a pie shop for six months. All three have specific jobs at the pie shop and they each have dating stipulations to fulfill. Cori is the carefree party girl and her job is to keep the books for the shop and no dating for six months. The lessons learned are life-changing. Watching her fall in love is beautiful. What a brilliant story line! The characters are AMAZING and they made me wish they were really my friends. I can’t wait to read the next book in this fabulous series by an author that NEVER disappoints.

Wow...Just wow! I love everything Erin Nicholas has ever written. I truly have. I always have a favorite within a series, but love them all! So...when a series starts out *this wonderful*, then I can't wait to see where this series goes! I absolutely love Cori! She is my favorite type of heroine. She has a little baggage. She's a little sassy. To outside observers, she might not take life too seriously. But at the end of the day, she's simply a good person with a big heart. And the hero, Evan, is her match. He struggles between being the man his grandfather wishes him to be and being like the father he admired so much. This story is NOT "opposites attract" - these two were perfectly made for each other. And I LOVE THAT! Erin Nicholas writes like I think. :) I fall into the story like I am one of the cast of characters. It's like I'm standing right there watching all this go down with my own eyes. I can't wait for the next story!!

I loved this story. It was just a lot of fun. The idea of being an identical triplet is fascinating. And Cori, Brynn and Ava are such different personalities! The story starts at the reading of their father's will. The stipulations in the will make for the beginning of a great set of stories. Taking the sisters out of their comfort zones and putting them together in a small town is definitely a way to shake up their lives. In this installment, we learn about Cori. She has the gift of making people happy. I think we all know someone like this and it is truly a gift. Evan is the first person to see Cori for who she really is. The two have a lot of sparks and are a lot of fun. The relationships of the sisters is fun to watch. I look forward to seeing how each of them changes through this experience. I can't wait for the next story in the series! I received an advance copy for an honest review.

I knew I’d enjoy a story by Ms. Nicholas however what I didn’t know was how much I would love these three sisters. Diamonds and Dirt Roads is not only the first story, in what I’m going to guess will be a trilogy (duh), but it also lays the foundation for this wonderful story about triplet sisters and a life chosen for them by their recently deceased father. I won’t go into too much of the story because it has to be read in order to be enjoyed, IMHO. It is funny, it is poignant, it is heartfelt, it is maddening, it is snark all rolled into one. This first story is about three sisters…triplets…and how their lives are about to change, in a BIG way. Their father has just passed away and he’s left some pretty big “restrictions” in his will that they must follow in order to inherit. At first I thought I knew how this was gonna play out. Nope! I’m happy to write that what could have been a cliché turned out to be so much more than I could have hoped. These three sisters, and their relationships to each other, will surprise you. I know they did for me. There’s the requisite tug and pull that siblings have but the author wrote such a strong bond between them… It was a great read for me. Diamonds and Dirt Roads is about Cori Carmichael and Evan Stone. Or is it about Evan and Ava? You’ll have to read it for yourself. To me, the book lays out the framework for the series so it can get a little involved in all the backgrounds but it held my interest through the book. It’s all information you need, as the reader, in order to put the story into perspective. I was pretty mad at their father. Why is it that folks try to make up for a lifetime of “wrong” by making people jump through hoops that they set? When I get this involved, it means the author did a great job of pulling me into the story. No worries! These are intelligent people who come up with their own loopholes. And pie. Enjoy this story! You won’t be sorry.

Yes, yes and yes the billionaire triplets have arrived in Bliss Kansas to run their deceased father's pie shop for the next year to gain their inheritance. Cori, Ava and Brynn have certain stipulations that they must conform to receive their inheritance. Evan is the lawyer from Bliss, handling the will. This is Cori's story. She is to maintain the books and not date for six months. There is an immediate chemistry between Cori and Evan, so why not pretend to date Ava and romance Cori. Sounds perfect to me!! Get ready for some fun loving sexy romance and plenty of food. Whip cream makes everything better in Cori's eyes. This is a great start to a new series, that will bring lots of laughter and happy tears throughout this story. Great chemistry between Cori and Evan!! I live in Kansas and Erin hit the small town atmosphere to the tee. I can't wait to read Ava and Brynn's stories!

I absolutely LOVED this Erin Nicholas read!!! From the one of a kind opening the book starts out with to the very last sentence, this book had me falling in love with her writing all over again. Cori has to be one of my favorite heroines Erin has created. She’s fun, outgoing, and just wants to bring a little bit of happiness to both of her sisters chaotic lives. Evan is perfect for her, even when he’s technically not supposed to be. This book had me laughing in some parts, and tearing up in others. A fantastic start to this new series that I would definitely recommend!

Life has a way of throwing curve balls. Ava, Brynn and Cori have just landed in the middle of one. Death has a way of being the ultimate wake up call. For billionaire Rudy, his call came a tad too late. Or did it? Diamonds and Dirt Roads begins a father's love letter to his beautiful little girls who have become fierce and lost young women. With the help of a to do list, a father guides the girls he never took the time to know, become the women they are meant to be. In book one Cori gets her time to shine. Misunderstood and brushed aside Cori is about to show the world she's more than just the party girl, she's thought to be. Erin Nicholas can always be counted on to pour on the charm with hypnotizing stories of heartache, humor and healing. You can never stop at just one.
