Book Review: Nash by Jay Crownover

nashSynopsis from Goodreads:

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?

Nash is the fourth installment in the Marked Men series and oh man, did Ms. Crownover take this book (and likely, this series) to a whole new level. I loved the first three books even with their slightly unbelievable bits and awful editing, but reading Nash was literally like a breath of fresh air. I’m so glad I got hooked on this series.

Nash was introduced in the first book and I’ve been curious about him ever since. He seemed to be a bit of a mysterious character and it wasn’t until book three that we start catching glimpses of who he really is. In this book Nash’s character has become so well developed, and even though he isn’t perfect, I can’t help but love him. Saint, too is just a totally loveable character. She’s so real and down to earth and it’s impossible not to relate to her in one way or another.

Nash and Saint’s story truly sucked me in. Between their separate backstories, their high school history, and the redevelopment of their relationship as adults I could not stop reading this book – it literally kept me up until 5 in the morning. Every bit of this story was just done brilliantly.

I don’t know how many ways I can say it, but Nash was phenomenal. It is a character driven story, which is something that I love personally, and it is at the same time a very emotional story that just grabs you by the (lady)balls and doesn’t let go. The writing, the story, and the editing is all just at a whole new level and I can’t stop fangirling about it all once I start.

Bottom line, Nash is amazing! I absolutely adored this book and I have a feeling I’ll be rereading it many a time. The characters, the feels, the story – it’s got it all. 5/5 stars.
