About the Book
Will their past determine their future?
Saint Ford has worked hard to achieve her childhood dream of becoming of nurse. Focused on her work and devoted to her patients, there’s no room for love. She doesn’t need a guy making waves in her calm, serene life—especially when he’s the unforgettable hottie who nearly destroyed her in high school. Dark, brooding Nash Donovan might not remember her or the terrible pain he caused. But he turned her world upside down . . . and now he’s trying to do it again.
Saint has no idea that Nash isn’t the cocky player he once was. Uncovering a devastating family secret has rocked his world, and now he’s struggling to figure out his future. He can’t be distracted by the pretty nurse he seems to meet everywhere. Still, he can’t ignore the sparks that fly between them —or how she seems so desperate to get away from him. But the funny, sweet, and drop-dead gorgeous Saint is far too amazing to give up on—especially since she’s the only thing in his life that seems to make sense.
When Nash discovers the truth about their past, he realizes he may have lost her heart before he could even fight for it. Now, Saint has to decide: is Nash worth risking herself for all over again?
My Rating: 5 Stars
“I needed my friends, loved my crew of misfits and rebels, but now I needed her more.”
Once again, Jay Crownover has given us a wonderful book. She writes super sexy, tattooed bad boys with huge hearts, and creates exceptional women to love them. Nash exceeded my expectations with engaging characters, an unputdownable romance, real emotion, steamy sex, and the author’s own flawless style and clever brand of wit and humor.
Crownover has a knack for writing colorful characters and Nash and Saint fit the bill perfectly. They have some serious history and big hang-ups that they struggle to overcome so that they can be together, like really together. Before they can find common relationship ground, the sex between the huge-hearted redhead nurse and the tattoo artist with (sexy) piercings is fantastic. I love the author’s way of writing characters and romances that feel completely real and accessible. Her characters, this family, are a group I would love to hang out with, and Crownover draws you in and makes you feel as if you are a part of their story.
Nash and Saint’s story is about love and healing, about moving forward from the past. It’s a story about finding that special person who deserves us most, and even though finding them may be easy, their journey shows us that loving someone and really being with them is difficult. They love through past hurts and quirky personalities, they love through hot sex and support each other in consuming careers, through family strife and heartbreaking loss.
This book made me laugh, made me cry, and made me want to hold my own tattooed bad-boy close; right after I fuck him silly. Nash may be the sexiest of the Marked Men so far and when Saint finds her herself, her place in the group, and taps in to her inner strength, she’s amazing. I was so pleased to be dive in to more of all the characters’ stories: complete with a baby, an incredibly romantic wedding, and a heartbreaking funeral. I am anxiously awaiting the next books in this awesome series.
“He wasn’t just making love to me, he wasn’t just trying to turn me on or wind me up. He was worshipping me. He was trying to show me in yet another way just how beautiful and perfect he saw me as being.”
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
About the Author
I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that. I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something. Thanks for taking the time to check my stuff out…
