It all started with a guy named Rule Archer. I was hooked. I love these Marked Men. Rule’s book was my absolute favorite, followed by Rome’s. As much as I love Nash and Jet, their women both drove me up the wall! There was so much I adored about this book. Nash was pretty much perfect. If Saint would have gotten her crap together a little quicker, it probably would have been a 5 star read for me. That being said, I still really enjoyed most of the book and you won’t want to
Possible spoiler alert!

It started off well but rapidly declined.

We begin with Nash at the hospital after receiving the double shocking news about Uncle Phil. We learn all about how Saint had a crush on him at High School and about how he tried to be her friend but then she 'overheard' him talking nastily about her. Despite how much she hates him, she sees that Nash is in need of some sympathy right now so she offers him a little bit of support. They have some nice sexual tension going on and at

I actually liked this one better than the last one.
I was apprehensive to start it because, almost all the reviews agreed on the fact that the female character was too insecure, and the cause of all her insecurities was too insignificant to warrant such deep rooted feelings of low self-esteem.

Now, while I agree that she was indeed very insecure, even annoyingly so, and the male lead was the one to pursue her and be very committed from the start, I did not like her any less for it, qui

How do you rate a romance book where you're in love with the leading man but feel he got short changed with his leading lady??

I'm going to apologize in advance for what will most likely be an overlong, babbling review.

"It's how we deal with the things that hurt us most that defines us."

That, right there, is suppose to be the message of this book. So, what defines Saint? She's defined by a brief time in high school. A 17 year-old boy's comment and one party.

Would have been a better book if it hadn't been for Saint. Sad to say, she pretty much sucked my enjoyment out of this book.

I'm all for heroines who have some insecurities one way or the other. If done right and sparingly, the heroine could end up likable and relatable. In this book, Saint's insecurities was way too heavy. It suffocated the fun right out of the book. Frankly, Saint was mean, whiny, and just generally unlikable.

Her books are just so fast paced and lovely, I’m a fanatic. Her Marked Men novels are very addicting and you can’t

This is the fourth book on the Marked Men Series and finally, he have Nash’s story.
Nash and Saint used to go to high school together. Saint was a shy girl who used to be picked on by the others, and Nash was the sexy troublemaker playboy that kept making bad decisions. Saint had a crush on Nash, so when one day he heard him say real cruel things she decides to change her life and never, ever, fall in love again. It just hurts too much.

I adored this book. I knew I'd love Nash and I was not disappointed. For me this is still not on a par with Rule but it's pretty damn close. Certainly better than Jet or Rome. Incredibly hot scenes intertwined with achingly sweet and emotionally provocative scenes written beautifully. It's a winner. Read it!!

Want want want!
is the one I've been waiting for. I think this will be the one to match Rule for me.

And that's why i cut half point of this book...
Because Saint was a really nice girl, but she had so many fuckin' issues inside of her that made me really, really angry...
She was so great and perfect but she wasn't having a fuckin' idea how perfect she was!!!

As for Nash???? He was perfect too, as all of the rest "marked" men and their matches...

Nash is the fourth installment in the Marked Men Series.

In this installment we get to know Nash, he has always been the calm voice of reason with the guys, and I was excited to see how that would work in his own relationship. True to character, Nash was reasonable and didn’t overreact. He didn’t sugar coat anything and was always willing to go the drama free way.

This earned serious points with me….

Nash is not the same person he was as a boy. Back then, he wanted his mom's acceptance and acted out to get her attention. Saint knew and was affected by him in high school, not always in a good way, but not everything was what it seems. They meet again as adults after Rome, Nash's close friend, lands himself in the hospital where she is a nurse. Though there is an obvious attraction, there is a giant shadow of hurt that dulls it on Saint's end. The attraction won't go away and as they are thrus ...more

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*

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

I truly enjoy this series and really wanted Nash's story of finding THE one for him. Thank goodness for Nash Donovan! From the first book, it was obvious he was a great guy, sweet, easy going and definitely rocking a hot body. This book only reinforced that tenfold! It was so easy to fall for Nash. He was perfect even with his flaws.

I was so excited to read Nash's story ever since he was mentioned in previous books in Marked Men series. and Jay Crownover never fails to deliver us these Bad boys yet so sweet,and caring..

That woman, she has some serious issues. I swear i felt like this through the whole book..

I became a Jay Crownover fan from the first time Rule Archer fell out of bed full of half-naked women, hung-over, and uncaring. My love for this author just grew with each book in the Marked Men series. Knowing Nash Donovan was going to get his time in the spotlight had me more than anxiously waiting!

Nash Donovan has always been the “good friend.” Always there for his friends with a good heart and an unwavering sense of loya

Saint is a succubus. She was a succubus on page 1 through to the bitter end. I am no raging feminist but this beotch literally could have set the woman's movement back light ages with her drama and shit. Basing her whole miserable existence on something she "thought" someone said about her. I had a really hard time trying to relate to her and her so-called insecurities.

I'm really liking this series and this is one of the better stories so far.

Nash is the ultimate good guy wrapped in a bad boy appearance. He is genuine, caring, and trustworthy.

Saint is the now-gorgeous nurse but was once an invisible girl in high school. She had a big crush on Nash, who was nice to her but with some misunderstanding, without him knowing, he broke her heart and she had issues that stemmed from it.

Running into each other again years later, he was drawn to her and

Love the Marked Men Series. However, this was my least favourite (so far). I really struggled with Saint and her messed up perspective on her life and how, somehow, Nash was responsible. I adored Nash and just thought he was way to good for Saint and basically she didn't deserve all that goodness. Still a good read but only 3 1/2 stars for me. ...more

In one night, Nash Donovan had so many truths revealed to him at once that he doesn't know if he should scream or hit something instead. His uncle is really his dad who is dying from cancer and his mother has lied to him his whole life.

Thankfully Saint Ford is there to prevent him from doing either.

Saint had a crush on Nash while they were in high school. They have their lockers next to each other and Nash was always nice to her despite her having acne and being a little overweigh

I love Marked Men series. I read Rule and I just totally hooked with the story. But in Nash, I like it little less. And I think that is because of Saint. She is portrays as sassy, smart and kind girl. But I found out that she is very annoying with her self esteem. How come a girl with self esteem issue can be sassy and smart?

I can not believe that she let a stupid incident in high school ruins her self esteem for 8 years. Now that is stupid. Nash is OK. Even though I want to see his character t
