Book Review: Turned Up by Erin Nicholas

Turned Up

So book number 3 in 2018 is Turned Up by Erin Nicholas.

Dillon Alexander has been Kit Derby’s nemesis since third grade, when he beat her in the school spelling bee. They’ve been competing ever since, driving each other to be the best at everything from science fairs to bake sales. While working together one night during their senior year, they stopped bickering long enough to share an emotionally charged kiss. But a tragedy that same night left them both racked with guilt, driving Dillon out of town and leaving Kit determined to keep her distance.

Now an emergency room physician, Dillon has returned to their hometown of Chance, Nebraska. Soon he and Kit fall back into old habits, sparring in public while trying to stay out of each other’s arms. But when a blizzard traps them overnight at Kit’s grandmother’s farmhouse, the real competition begins: Who will be the first to give in to the feelings they’ve denied for a decade? (Thanks Amazon)

Turned Up is the third book in the Taking Chances trilogy by Erin Nicholas.  I’ve been meaning to read this for a while as I really enjoyed the first two so was very pleased when I finally got to it in my TBR pile!

Dillon and Kit both appeared in the previous two novels, so it was like coming back to old friends.  It was nice to finally learn a little more about the pair of them, and the reasons why they have been forced apart for so long.  What I really enjoy about trilogies such as this one is the fact that you get to revisit settings and characters – I loved catching up with Avery and Bree too.  I also liked coming back to Chance, a small, all-American town where the inhabitants all look out for each other.  As you all know, small town American romances are a favourite of mine and this one certainly fit the bill.

Dillon and Kit have undeniable chemistry, and its obvious from the outset that they each struggle to contain their feelings when they are around each other.  It was therefore nice to follow their story as they each learned that letting go of their past might not be such a bad thing after all.

If you want to read a light, easy romance then this is the book for you.  Whilst you don’t need to have read the first two in order to enjoy this, I definitely recommend that you do.  Happy Reading!
