Will their past determine their future?
Saint Ford has worked hard to achieve her childhood dream of becoming a 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?Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Saint arbeitet als Krankenschwester und als Onkel Phil, der Ziehvater von Nash eingeliefert wird, treffen die Beiden aufeinander. Nash hat eigentlich eine gute Erinnerung an sie, Saint erinnnert sich nur an 2 unschöne Episoden in denen Nash ihr das Herz gebrochen hat - ob nun mit Absicht oder unwissentlich, das hinterfragt sie nicht und ist auch 8 Jahre nach Schulende immer noch schlimmstens traumatisiert obwohl natürlich zwischenzeitlich extrem grossartig aussehend.
Saints Vater hat die Mutter betrogen und die Familie verlassen, woraufhin die Mutter von Saint ein wenig den Boden unter den Füssen verloren hat und zeitweise ein wenig austickt - fand ich aber ganz lustig aus der Ferne. Aber auch das ein Grund, keinen Männern je zu vertrauen für Saint.
Nash fühlt sich sehr zu ihr hingezogen und als die Ereignisse um Phil sich zuspitzen, dann noch dazu seine Mutter, zu der er ja ohnehin ein schwieriges Verhältnis hat, auch noch dazu kommt, erweist sich Saint, trotz all ihrer Bedenken als Stütze und Hilfe (on and off the bed versteht sich).
Trotzdem, dass Nash ihr deutlich zeigt, dass er sie sehr mag und mehr mag als jedes andere Mädel vorher, glaubt sie kein Wort, verdächtigt ihn ungerechtfertigt, das alles nicht ernst zu meinen und zieht sich oft zurück.
Mir geht das zwischenzeitlich auf die Nerven.
Ihre Schwester und ihre Chefin reden dann auch noch mit und mischen sich in ihr Leben ein.
Es gibt wieder viel Emotion, Kämpfe und Tattoos um mit der ganzen "Marked" Familie Rule+Shaw, Jet+Ayden, Rome+Cora und Rowdy. Neu gibt es dann noch Zeb und die Nachbarin von Nash - vielleicht gibt's da ja ein neues Traumpaar, aufgrund der Umstände der Beiden könnte ich es mir gut vorstellen, bzw ansonsten müsste ich mich schon fragen, was die Nachbarin in der Geschichte für eine Rolle spielte.
Am Ende gibt es noch eine Vorschau auf die Story von Rowdy - Buch 5.
Fazit: wie immer sehr gute Unterhaltung, flüssig zu lesen, diesmal für meinen Geschmack ein wenig zu viel "Nachgedenke" und Saint ist trotz ihres Namens nicht zwingend ein Sympathieträger. Ich an Nash' Stelle hätte sie vom Hof gejagt. Kommt auch wieder nicht an Rule oder meinetwegen noch Jet ran, aber vielleicht stelle ich da zu hohe Ansprüche.
Und was ich mich immer wieder frage: die Bilder auf den Covern der Bilder passen in meiner Vorstellung nicht zu den tatsächlichen Akteuren, aber vielleicht geht es nur mir so.
Jay Crownover’s beautifully poetic writing style takes us on a journey of growth, passion, forgiveness and self-love. With the use of perfectly fitting metaphors she allows the book to play like a movie in the reader’s head and lead to me being fully invested in the story and the characters’ feelings.
We’ve met Nash before and he always seemed like the most laid-back and rational guy of the lot. His own story confirms this first impression. He is kinda the nice guy from next door – just that the nice guys has sexy tattoos all over his body, piercings in the right places and could give any sex-god a run for his money. After a life-altering truth is revealed to him at the end of “Rome“, he now has to come to terms with the consequences of this revelation. Things that he believed about himself and others are now being turned upside down and he has to rethink a lot of what he thought he knew about his life. As if this wouldn’t be complicated enough, he also starts falling for a woman from his past – a woman that has more trust issues than any secret service agency. Yet, and that is the great thing about Nash, he doesn’t lose himself in all the confusion and turmoil. He stays true to who he is…a sweet, nice guy. He does not go off the deep end, but stays focused on what has to be done and what the right thing to do is, while allowing friends to help him. Will in the end the saying “the truth will set you free” ring true for Nash?
The girl that makes his life more complicated is Saint. She is extremely loving and caring, making it her life purpose to help others. While she manages to let people close and to show them love and compassion in the ER, she has a hard time trusting anyone outside of work. Having been bullied and made fun off all of her teenage years, she has scars that run so deep she’s not sure she will ever have the courage to let go of the past. All her past experiences have altered her perception of who she is, how she looks like and what she deserves, making it impossibly for her to love herself. And this makes it hard to believe that someone else could love her. No matter how much she wants Nash, letting go of her distrust, of her pain and of the past, seems nearly impossible. It takes nearly losing him and realizing that people make mistakes and learn from them for her to finally destroy the walls that she has built around her heart.
The way Jay Crownover wrote both characters, they were extremely realistic and easy to relate to. She showed how versatile bullying can be and the effects it can have on a person – even years later it can affect their life. I loved that she showed how bullying doesn’t just happen to the less fortunate looking or the nerds. It can happen to the cool kids as well. It isn’t just your peers that can bully you, but it happens by the hand of the people that should support you the most – your family. And even though someone might not show it to the outside world how much insecurity and self-doubt they feel underneath that tough and professional exterior, it doesn’t mean it is not there. Jay Crownover gave something to think about. A simple remark out of stupidity and anger can alter someone else’s life – so why not try and alter it positively? Don’t you just love when a romantic, hot and steamy book also teaches you a life lesson?
5+ compassionate, sweet, life-changing stars.

I have to start by saying that I absolutely love the Marked Men series. There is something so special about this group of people, all with such different personalities and issues, who have come together to make a family. It's wonderful how they always take care of one another. Even when they are brutally honest, it always comes from the heart. I have been intrigued by Nash since we first met him in Rule, and I was excited that his love interest would be someone new to the group. Jay Crownover did not disappoint. Nash was a great book about loving and accepting yourself and being who you are no matter what others might think.
Nash is a sweetheart, a genuinely nice guy who would do anything to help someone in need. My heart went out to him with the way his mother treated him. There was one point when I just wanted to reach into the book and slap her. A boy's mother is supposed to be his first love, but Nash never received the love and attention he deserved. Instead his mother chose her husband, and between the two of them they made Nash feel like an unloved outcast. One thing I loved about Nash was that even thought he was dealt a rough hand, he understood and appreciated the blessing of having good friends who truly cared about him. I also had a lot of respect for the way the way he embraced who he was.
I found Saint's character to be quite challenging at times. While I empathized with her insecurities about herself and being accepted by others, I felt like she held a little too much against Nash from their high school days together. It seemed extreme to me that she would hold onto it for that long and then once Nash explained, she still couldn't let it go. Saint had a good heart, though, and I adored how she was there for Nash, especially in the beginning when she didn't have to be. I also thought she did great handling the situation with her mother. It showed great strength and maturity. I loved how Nash patiently worked to break down her walls, and in the end I was pleased with her growth.
There were some very emotional moments in this book, some happy and some sad. It was nice to see glimpses of the couples from previous books and also be introduced to some new characters, especially Royal, who gave us the great quote above. The wonderful thing about Nash and all the books in this series is how real and relatable the characters are. Nobody is perfect, and they all make mistakes. Sometimes you love them and sometimes you just want to shake them and tell them to get it together. I am excited to read Rowdy's story next and spend more time with one of my favorite casts of characters.
Nash, or Nashville as his mother named him, has just found out a huge secret and the lovely Saint Ford had just walked out into the hospital waiting room and innocently released it, not even knowing it was a secret. Nash hadn't been unwanted by his father. His father loved him deeply, he just thought he was his uncle. And now to find out he has stage 4 cancer and is dying... Nash is at the end of his rope.
Saint, who went to high school with many of the Marked Men, has noticed Nash hasn't been in to see Phil. Even though Nash had hurt her deeply as a teenager, she can't stand by and watch him miss out on his father's last days. What starts as an innocent trip to his house to check on him gets hot and heavy quickly.
But can these two get past the hang ups they have about the past? Will this new future be enough to get over the past and move on?
- ...only a fool gets burned twice by the same fire.
- “I want you to know, this man— the man you are now— he is a man you can be proud of.”
- “We are not interchangeable objects, LEGO pieces that click together just because the parts fit.”
*Was gifted a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review
I finished Nash awhile ago and held off on writing my review because I just had to let it resonate with me awhile. The truth is I do not think I was ready to share. NASH is the 4th book in the Marked Man series and was NOT a disappointment. I am a big fan of Jay Crownover’s work. I find that every book she writes is different in some way, which makes them stand out from the sea of NA books.
The Marked Man series is not a series about bad boys, just misunderstood ones. Nash comes across as the SWEETEST guy around even though he is big and intimidating. His love interest is Saint. Saint is a nurse and had a huge crush on Nash in High School. So much happens in this story. Jay visits old characters and introduces us to new ones with a skill for writing that is uninhibited and free flowing. The story never fills rushed or hurried; it just simple unfolds like a perfect flower to the morning sun.
I feel as a woman, I can relate to Saint. She does have some issues of insecurity and as the story unfolds, the transition from being a scared, insecure little girl to a confident, strong, caring woman that deserves to be loved emerges. All the Marked Men are unique and special in the their own way, but Nash is perfectly perfect and simply just a NICE GUY.
NASH by Jay Crownover receives 5 out of 5 PLATYPIRES!!!
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!!
