Nash (Marked Men #4) by Jay Crownover
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?

Words can not express how excited I was to read Nash’s story. After meeting him previously in the Marked Men series, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on him…literally. The depth of Jay’s descriptions of the Victorian, the shop, the weather, tattoos, piercings, hell everything was at a level that I could picture it myself as though I was looking at said things with my own eyes or in those settings. The struggles Nash and Saint experience from the hurtful words and secrets of their pasts affected me right along with them. I felt the rejection and mistrust and it hurt. Their journey to love was moving to me because they have a connected history from being in school together. This made their journey interesting as they weren’t running in the same social circle and how this connected to their current struggles had me intrigued. The power lies in what we think of ourselves and believing we are good enough!! Phil, oh Phil! I think he’s my favorite! I believe he’s the heart and soul of this Marked family as he’s a fixer and he believes and has faith in these men and women when they may not have the faith and positivity within themselves. Phil left his mark on my heart, that’s for effing sure!! Speaking of “marks”, Jay’s way of descriptions left me at times with my mouth hanging wide open and head cocked wondering “what, how?” with piercings and my eyes leaking and heart racing from her description of tattoos and scars. The meanings behind these “marks” are moving, powerful and again I can “see” them and they’re beautiful!! Jay never fails to leave me longing for the next Marked Men and up next we had Rowdy…the epilogue gets you primed and ready, that’s for sure!! Give this a try and find your next crush!!

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…
