Book Review: Nash

Nash (Marked Men #4) by Jay Crownover: 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?

TeriLyn's thoughts: The Marked Men Series holds a high spot on my favorites list. These guys and their ladies together maintain a special place in my book heart. Jay Crownover made falling in love with Rule, Jet, Rome, Nash, and Rowdy completely effortless. The relationships between the Marked Men and their women always provide the best reads. Every character from previous books is present in Nash's story in big ways. A major, intense...something... happens with Rule and Shaw, true to classic Rule & Shaw, making you want to read their story all over again.

With that said, throughout the first three books Nash charmed his way into my heart with a level-headed attitude, striking looks, and all the love the in the world for his motley crew. I couldn't wait for Nash to find his person because I knew that he had so much give. This hunch didn't disappoint. There's something about Nash's dangerous looks yet gentle disposition that makes you want to hold onto him and never let go. He's a gentleman, a kind soul, the best best friend. I loved him.

Saint, on the other hand, drove me nuts after a while. As the outcast in high school and unpleasant experience with Nash, Saint built an impenetrable shield around her. Empathizing with her and understanding her issues proved easy for me. However, her guard was constantly on high alert. She liked him but wouldn't tell him over-analyzing everything and and trusting very few people. I could only understand for so long before wanting to shake some sense into her. Unfortunately, she wasn't my kind of heroine throughout a lot of the book mostly liking at the beginning and the end.

Nash still receives 4 stars from me even though the heroine isn't my favorite. This series continues to provide well written, entertaining stories about the importance of being unique and loving it. Jay Crownover creates heart filling stories of an "unconventional" family of alpha males who fall hard and deep. If you're fan of the series you're going to like Nash because you already love him from before. The secondary characters help Nash stand out. Plus, you don't want to miss the epilogue for an awesome glimpse of what we're going to get with Rowdy's story next.
