Will their past determine their future?
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?
I know this is a cliché thing to say, but I'm going to saying it anyway: Jay Crownover just blew my mind with NASH. Rule Archer has always been my favorite and my first love in the Marked Men series. But I'm so sorry Rule, but your best friend just stole my heart. I will always love you, too, though. When it comes to Nash Donovan, I always thought of him as the cockiest of all the marked men; he’s shallow, a womanizer, a player (well all the marked men are womanizers, but Nash, to me, held the title for 1st place), not really caring about anything and if there was a jerk/asshole comment made, you could be sure it came from Nash's mouth. But I definitely judged Nash Donovan wrong, and my review/thoughts fall right in line with the storyline of Nash's book.
Nash is nothing like who I thought he was. My God, this man is deep, so caring, sensitive, and tender, has a huge, loving heart, and loves his marked men family with every bit of his heart and soul. I cried so much while reading Nash's story. I don't think I have cried at reading any of the other Marked Men books. I just wanted to reach inside this book and hold Nash forever (and maybe some other things too ;) And when Nash describes his beautiful tattoo and his piercing's to Saint, I went into drool mode. OMG this man is beautiful inside and out! Saint is one lucky girl!
Nash is in a heartbreakingly dark place in his life right now, with Phil, the tattoo business, his mother, and the girl that he thought was always out of his league. Nash's life is going to change a lot in the next few months, and needless to say, he's losing his grip on being the strong, confident, self-assured guy he has always been. And the only one that seems to ground him is Saint Ford. But Saint’s not so sure she wants the same kind of relationship that Nash wants, because she remembers the heartless player Nash was in high school. Nash is the boy who broke her heart, and also sealed her heart closed for loving any other man.
Nash and Saint's romance is tender, wild, raw and beautiful. And those piercing's that Nash has are a great bedroom asset to have, yummy. Nash was definitely not going to fall into the trap of loving only one woman like his marked men buddies. Oh Nash, don't you know those are the famous last words for all the marked men?
I love how Jay Crownover shows the reader what’s going on with the other marked men and their ladies in all her books, and in Nash's book it's no different. There’s an awesome backstory showing Rule and Shaw, and then Rome and Cora and rest of the guys. Next book will be Rowdy and Salem in the Marked Men series. Readers get a sneak peek to the first chapter and I do believe Salem is going to totally whip Rowdy. Also, Crownover gives us a sneak peek to her new series Welcome To The Point. And Bax is one bad, bad boy.
Jay Crownover has definitely given me and all readers another yummy marked men bad boy with Nash and beautiful steamy romance with Nash and Saint. I highly recommend NASH an awesome must read.
5 Hearts of love for NASH!
About the AuthorI'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...
