Unique Facts About The Author, Derek Adam:

  • The first time I ever saved a life was during a clinical rotation 2 weeks into my training academy. Just after arriving to work the ER for the first time, I found myself with an elderly patient who coded in front of me. We were able to bring her back via CPR. I promptly went out to my car and cried. I was hooked.
  • I’m big into gaming, it’s one of my top hobbies. Every year I participate in the Extra Life 24 hour gaming marathon to help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network 🙂
  • I can play piano, and guitar, but can’t read sheet music. I learned to play everything by ear
  • I’m 37 this year and desperately wish I had a Powerwheel of my own. Not a big go cart. or a little race car. I was a big plastic, electric Powerwheel. I get jealous when I watch my kids drive theirs.
  • Siberian Husky is my favorite breed of dog, and I look forward to adding another to our family someday soon.

Completely Yours by Erin Nichols

Kiera Connelly leads a quiet life, and that’s just how she likes it. She’s built a name as a graphic designer and meets up with her friends online, all from the comfort of her living room couch. But when a rare outing turns disastrous, Kiera finds herself up close and way too personal with an unbelievably hot real-life hero.

Zach Ashley doesn’t see himself as a hero. He’s just a regular guy who gets to help people every day as an EMT. But when he’s called to a scene and has to treat his most gorgeous patient ever, he finds himself mixing work with pleasure. He never hesitates to put his life on the line…but will he ever risk his heart?

This is my first book from Erin Nicholas and I am so pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

I feel like this sounds corny, but this book was so cool. I thought the author took the concept of the gamer/nerd trope and totally turned it upside down. As I read this book, many times I found myself admiring the author’s creativity. She took ideas that might be ones we’ve seen and completely flipped them around and then made them something totally new.

One really great example of this is Keira and her gaming. Also, Zach’s sister and her love of gaming. I feel like so many times the stereotype is that girls don’t play games or if they do, its in a hyper-sexed up aspect. This is not the case in this book. I also enjoyed seeing Zach not getting the concept of gaming and why it could be found fun.

With that said, we do see Zach and Keira evolve throughout the book. At some point, both of them, and even other supporting characters, learn some valuable life lessons. I appreciated this for both Zach and Keira but also for the supporting characters. However, it didn’t feel forced. It felt like based on the way the book was going, it made sense that our characters would need to either step up to the plate or be left behind.

I really found myself enjoying this story. When I first started it, I wasn’t totally sure I would like it. I know I said it before, but the way the author approached this book and was able to make common ideas into totally new ideas was really enjoyable to read. I will definitely be checking out more books from this author because I ended up enjoying this story so much.
