Nash (Marked Men #4) by Jay Crownover


Nash: A Marked Men Novel

Synopsis:

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?

Review:

Oh Nash. I didn't think you could get a guy better than Rule, and while Nash isn't he is a close second for me. I loved Rule. He is just....yeah. With the hair and the tattoos and the piercings and yeah. I loved Rule, but Nash...like I said he was a close second favorite of mine behind Rule.

Nash and Saint went to high school together. Saint was shy and kind of awkward and got made fun of for her weight and such. I was hoping I wouldn't hate her too much when you see in the prologue what happened 8 years ago in high school, why she hated Nash. When I read how the nail in his coffin was her overhearing him say something mean about someone and she automatically assumes it is about her...well I knew she was going to have major self confidence issues. I had a friend in high school who overheard a similar thing, while I was with her, and she like Saint assumed it was about her (even though the guy didn't even know her). She was a little crazy and it spiraled out of control, but Saint really needs to work on loving herself. She does not have very good self esteem and to still let something some stupid boy in high school said still have control over your life eight years later? Well you have issues and I am betting it is not all about Nash. When she tells him why she hated him he is pissed. He was always the nice guy, and he admits he did some bad things, but he wouldn't talk about her like that. He always liked her but thought she was too good for him. He got the emotional put downs at home so he understands.

I loved reading Nash. He is so sweet! He let's everything that happens happen when Saint wants it. He knows she needs that bit of control. He was so perfect for her, if only she will let him in. He struggled with trying to get closer to her since she was always pulling away. He was just great. I loved him. So kind and so sweet and so perfect! When they finally have their big blow up and he tells her how much he loves her, but she needs to learn to love herself so she can trust him and they can grow and move on. I loved it. It was what she needed to hear. She clings to the past so she won't have a future. She needs to learn to move on as people change and grow.  I mean high school kids are not always the smartest. It was good.

What else did I like? We get the Rule and Shaw wedding! Not a lot of it, but I love Rule so I was happy. I like seeing where everyone is at. I liked seeing Saint come out of her shell some and start making some friends. I loved how even though Nash had a ton of stuff on his plate he still made time for Saint and tried to do whatever she needed. He was so loving and yeah I will stop gushing about him. Loved it, and he has some nice piercings too! Overall a great story. I cannot wait for the next one to come out!

Rating: 4.5/5
