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?
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...
5 STARS *****
I have loved the Marked Men series from Jay Crownover. Nash is the next chapter in this series and it does not disappoint.
Nash and Saint have both been through similar obstacles in their lives. Both feeling unwanted and not good enough.
Nash and Saint's paths have crossed more than once. Recently, at the hospital and in the past at high school. Nash doesn't remember much about Saint from high school, nor does he know about the extreme crush that she had on him that eventually caused Saint to experience life changing heart break.
Now they meet again.This time while Nash's Uncle Phil is in the hospital battling cancer. Saint is a nurse and although she carries hatred for Nash, she can't deny the pull she feels around him. Nash is heartbroken when he learns about his Uncle Phil's fate and even more so once he realizes he has been deceived all these years by the one person he thought was always there and he could trust.
Despite wallowing in his own sadness, Nash is still there for his friends. His one saving grace is Saint. He isn't sure what it is about her but he needs her. He may look tough on the outside, but inside is a sweet man just wanting to be loved and wanted.
Read Nash and follow along Saint and Nash's journey to find what we all want, love.
