From New York Times best-selling author Jay Crownover comes the fourth book in the Marked Men series.
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?

Definitely the hero. Nash was a total sweetheart, it was great to watch (or hear) him overcome his issues with his family and come to a place where he could accept himself and be proud of who he was. Pacing kinda dragged in some parts, but not to the point of being unreadable (unlistenable).
Both narrators were just alright to me. It might be my imagination, but Paula Costello sounds like Kristen Stewart to me, so I kept seeing her deadpan face. I think the fact that I disliked Saint as a character might have made it worse. Tad was great as Nash, but his other voices didn't really go over all that well for me (maybe Asa's, if I'm being generous).
Yep, I've been waiting months for it, so I powered straight through it.
Looking forward to the next two books in the series, even though this heroine was my least favorite, the story overall was enjoyable.
Still can never decide which of these books I like the best! I love all the marked men novels and this is yet another great addition! Nash has the biggest heart despite all the hard times in his life. He doesn't let that get in the way of what he wants
This is the only other book in the series so far that can contend with "Rule" for the spot as favorite. Nash was a good guy. He was calm and not as impulsive as the others. Each of them are different which I love. Saint drove me crazy at times with her hang ups but the story was great. I thought the narrator for saint was a bit monotone but it wasn't too bad. Hearing about Rule and Shaw's wedding was such a nice bonus.
I love the series, and while I adored Nash and his story, I didn't enjoy Saint's. She needed some serious therapy, and even in the end, I honestly wouldn't think their story turned out happily ever after in the end. At least not until she seriously got her shit together for a good long while.
Her issues and inability to get past them nearly ruined the book for me, and honestly I only held out because of Nash's family story and I was expecting a teaser into Rowdy's story.
The narration was awesome on both the male & female parts! :)
A mother, wife, sister and good friend who enjoys the simple things in life. Country music is my preference and the beach is my escape (other then my books). LOL!
Nash and Rules stories are my favorite so fare. Saint could use a little work, a little to girly. The Narrators made the story come alive...
Jay is my new favorite author... here it is after 3 in the morning, I couldn't put this book down , just like all her books... I'll be starting Rowdy tomorrow. . Glad tomorrow is my day off!
Hands down the best book I've listened to in quite some time. Laughed, cried, giggled and got mad.... I am now a huge fan of this author!
I recommend this book to anyone interested in edgy, naughty, good humored fun. The guys are truly a family and the girls they bed are surely in for a delectable treat.
loved it. cried alot at some point. Not very sure I liked Saint much though.
"Not as good as the other stories in the series."
Yes. The narrators were both good, and I have read several other books by this author which is why I bought this audio book.
Saint, the main female character is whiny and irritating, and rather unfeeling towards others - especially her mother. It was her character that spoiled my enjoyment of this book.
"A more emotional Jay Crownover book"
In the top ten
Nash easily because he is scary on the outside but deep and loving on the inside.
Nash by Tad Branson
Yes, I couldn't not cry at the tragedy that you know is coming right from the beginning but boy, the listening to it cuts like a knife.
A different Jay Crownover read but fits well in the Marked Men series. I love it when there are two voices in an audiobook.
