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?
*Was gifted a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review
I finished Nash awhile ago and held off on writing my review because I just had to let it resonate with me awhile. The truth is I do not think I was ready to share. NASH is the 4th book in the Marked Man series and was NOT a disappointment. I am a big fan of Jay Crownover’s work. I find that every book she writes is different in some way, which makes them stand out from the sea of NA books.
The Marked Man series is not a series about bad boys, just misunderstood ones. Nash comes across as the SWEETEST guy around even though he is big and intimidating. His love interest is Saint. Saint is a nurse and had a huge crush on Nash in High School. So much happens in this story. Jay visits old characters and introduces us to new ones with a skill for writing that is uninhibited and free flowing. The story never fills rushed or hurried; it just simple unfolds like a perfect flower to the morning sun.
I feel as a woman, I can relate to Saint. She does have some issues of insecurity and as the story unfolds, the transition from being a scared, insecure little girl to a confident, strong, caring woman that deserves to be loved emerges. All the Marked Men are unique and special in the their own way, but Nash is perfectly perfect and simply just a NICE GUY.
NASH by Jay Crownover receives 5 out of 5 PLATYPIRES!!!
