Nash and Saint's story:
Saint was a little overweight, super smart, and super shy in high school. Her locker ended up next to Nash's and Nash always was nice to her and said hello. Saint had a huge crush on Nash and got her heart broken. It was not really Nash's fault but Saint disliked him ever since it happened.
With Phil sick and in the hospital, Nash runs into Saint a lot more often then Saint cares for. After Nash tries to drown himself in alcohol and disappears into himself for about a week, Saint feels inclined to go to his apartment and see how he is. After answering the door very drunk and only in his boxers he unexpectedly kisses Saint. Saint leaves in a huff.
Saint can't believe that Nash kissed her, she can't believe it was the best kiss of her life, she can't believe she can't stop thinking about it, and she really can't believe that she wants to do it again.
Nash and Saint become closer and Saint tells him why she was so leary of him. He tries to make amends for his past self in order to gain Saint's trust but he realizes that she needs to let go of the past and love herself before a relationship will work for them. Nash has fallen for her, there is no doubt in his mind but convincing Saint of that is a different story. Saint wants to trust Nash with her heart but has a serious issue with letting things go.
After a misunderstanding involving Royal, Nash's super sexy neighbor, Saint flees for a couple days to get her head on straight and figure out what she really wants out of life.
Phil takes a turn for the worst and Saint rushing home to help Nash through the hard time. She knows that no matter what is going on with them right now Nash needs her help.
Nash is stressed with a new shop opening, hiring people, construction, Saint's hangups, Phil's illness, he does not know which end is up. This is why he needs Saint she will ground him and help him breath through it. They are good together and as a reader you want them to work.
Other things we get to see in this part of the series are Cora and Rome's baby girl is born, we met Royal the super sexy cop that lives next door to Nash, we meet Salem the pinup model interviewing for the new manager position in the new tattoo shop.
Good story the series is flowing nicely.....can't wait for Book#5 Rowdy.
