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?
****I was a given a complimentary advanced reading copy of this book for my honest review****
Saints life revolves around her work as a nurse she takes care of everyone around her and she does not need a guy who almost broke her in high school coming into her life changing things. Nash's life has been turned upside down, secrets have come out, and he is trying to find out how to deal with them he should not let Saint distract him but he cannot ignore her or the heat between them. Can the two of them get over the hurts from their pasts or will Saint decide that she not be willing risk her heart? This is the fourth book in the Marked Men series and while it is a stand alone book I would suggest reading the other three books in the series first to get the background on the all the characters that are featured prominently in the story. I have not rated this book yet because I'm still stuck on what to give it, I love how the author caught us up on characters from her previous books and introduced some great new ones. Jay does an amazing job at creating these wonderful characters that are each so unique in their personalities that you forget that they are not real people. I was right there with Nash, and my heart was breaking for him for all that he had to endure. Saint was insecure, but this was not your normal level, this was a level so high that she should have gone to therapy. The romance between them was angsty, sweet, hot and frustrating at times. There were several great things about this book that made me love it, but Saint and her actions throughout the book had me putting it down to take deep calming breaths. I was angry at Saint for what she was doing then I was angry at Nash; I loved the book, but I kinda hated the heroine. This book has me all kinds of emotionally conflicted, well done and a great addition to the Marked Men series.
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..
