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?

Val’s Review

I would rate this higher, but I don’t think I have enough self esteem…

Saint and her insecurities drained all mine out of me…or least it felt like it.

This started off great and, after watching these two interact in the previous books, I was really excited for this story. Nash was great and the full cast of all our friends of course made it heart-warming. But Saint. Je-SUS, this girl. *shakes head*

I get having insecurities and leftover hurts from our teenage years. I fucking HATED middle school and high school (college on the other hand was a party and a half, but I drunkenly digress…), and like Sandra Bullocks’ mama said in Hope Floats, “Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome.”

But SHIT, there comes a point where you just have to pull up your big girl panties…or take them off, Miss Saint.

Obviously, she finally comes around, but good grief, she was starting to piss me off getting there. I think if that part of her personality had been toned down just a little, I would have enjoyed the story more, but to each their own.


Let it float up Saint, damn!
