Nash Book Tour: Review + Giveaway!

Click on the banner for the full schedule.
Welcome to my post for the Nash book tour! I have a review coming up, as well as a giveaway for a $100, $50, and $25 gift card, as well as signed books and swag. But, before we get to all that, allow me to introduce the book:

Nash (Marked Men, #4)
Release date: April 29, 2014
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
Genre: New Adult Contemporary romance
Series: Marked Men #4

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?



My Rating: 5 Roses

What can I say? Every book in this series has been brilliant and this one definitely doesn't disappoint. Intense, emotional, steamy, and romantic, Nash was an amazing New Adult read. I LOVED this book! Yet another winner from the incredibly talented Jay Crownover. Seriously, this woman can't go wrong.

Saint was a wonderful heroine. She was the quietly strong type of character and she was very loyal to those she cared about. She had issues with self-esteem that tied back to a moment in high school that included Nash and a general distrust of men not helped by the actions of her adulterous father. My only problem with her was that she let her self-consciousness dictate her actions and not only hurt Nash, but nearly gave up the love of a lifetime. But, overall, I really liked her.

Nash was just amazing. He was so sweet and adorable and I totally loved him! He was dealing with a lot in this book, not to mention the terrible childhood he had, courtesy of his cold mother. He had every reason to become bitter, but he was still so sweet and so genuinely nice. He was determined to win Saint over and proved how devoted he could be. He was wonderful and I adored him.

The romance was a perfect mix of sweet and steamy. Saint and Nash were wonderful together. Even with Saint's hesitance, their feelings for each other were always obvious, though someone had a hard time admitting that. I loved how Nash was determined to not give up and convince Saint that she could trust him. And, the chemistry between them was hot, with tons of steaminess to heat things up. I thought they were a wonderful couple.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. The emotions of this book were well portrayed and kept me drawn into the characters. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. Up next, I believe is Rowdy and Salem's story. Can't wait to read it!

Nash was a brilliant New Adult romance. It was emotionally intense, with sweet and steamy romance and I enjoyed reading every bit of it. I absolutely love this book! It was another fantastic book in a wonderful series. Fans of the Marked Men series, you won't be disappointed with this one. And, New Adult lovers, this is a book you won't want to miss.

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...
