~Description~

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~

Jay Crownover has a huge fan of her Marked Men series, I can’t get enough! Her writing is brilliant, the characters are AMAZING, I seriously want to crawl inside the book and become a part of their world. I figured that Rome would be my favorite…but nope. Nash has stolen my heart!! His story is breathtaking and beautiful. Each story Jay Crownover has written gets better and better. She reaches out of that book and grabs your heart with these characters; you can’t help but fall in love with each and every one of them.

Nash and Saint’s story was really emotional. They have a past and it’s not the best one. Nash hurt Saint and she has trouble getting past it despite the feelings she has had for him since high school.  Nash has met his match in Saint. He never wanted to settle down. Sure, he is happy for all his friends, but that doesn’t mean he will ever be willing to be with someone the way his mother is with her husband. That is until he meets Saint. Saint is extremely shy and very unsure of herself in every way but her work. At the hospital she thrives. So when Nash comes rushing in with a family emergency, she doesn’t understand why now of all times she feels the need to comfort someone. Saint drove me crazy throughout the book. Nash is right there! Right there for the taking, but what is a good romance without a little chase, a little give and tug I suppose.

This book is another amazing addition to this amazing series brought to life by a motley crew of bold individuals. The level of angst was alluringly high in this one and it was interesting to see that it was the girl, in this case, that had to work harder at fixing her issues to make the relationship work. There were also some moments that completely gutted me and made me tear up. Overall I just felt it was a solid, addictive, wonderfully paced book about really seeing the person you love and being smart enough to grab a hold of that goodness before we lose it all to the stuff that doesn’t really matter in the end. I highly recommend it!

~Description~

Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon.

Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

~Review~

 

Jay Crownover’s third installment of the Marked Men series was about Rule’s older brother, Rome aka Captain no-fun and his friend Cora aka Tink or Half-pint. Rome Archer is back from his final tour in the Army. He’s finally home and he’s not been himself since he’s been back. He has issues with his family, and his time spent at war left it’s mark.  And lets be honest, he’s been quite an ass since he’s been back. Everyone in the group is trying to just let it slide for now, except Cora. She gives him a piece of her mind when he says something out of line about his brother, Rule, who happens to be one of her best friends. Rome is a big guy. He is strong, stoic and tough. Cora is physically much smaller, has lots of ink and piercings, and is a spitfire. Cora is something else; she’s spunky, feisty and a wonderful leading lady! She seems more put together than Rome, but she has her issues too. She’s been marked by her past just like Rome. She’s had her heart broken in on of the the worst ways possible, and now she is very cautious about giving it away. She’s not sure if she ever will. At least not until she finds ‘Mr. Perfect.’

Although, Rome and Cora seem like opposites, they have a ton in common. Both are loyal and protective of their friends and family, caring and they have things they are dealing with. In the beginning of their relationship they face a lot of obstacles. Rome has to deal with his guilt, PTSD, depression and nightmares and Cora needs to get over her fear of falling deep in love and having that person leave. They struggle a lot. They come together. They fall apart. Healing isn’t always easy, but when the two were finally able to get it together, it was so incredible.

I love the Marked Men series. Jay Crownover writes compelling characters that immediately sneak into your heart, and romances full of chemistry and heat! I can’t wait for the next one! I absolutely love these characters and the whole world the author has crated. I highly recommend it!
