I loved how crazy the H was for the h from the start but I can't say I enjoyed the direction the book went in. I hate separations in my books and we have a 7 year separation in this one. I also didn't like the decisions the h made and just wish things had been a little different. That was super vague and if you want spoilers... (view spoiler)[The h has a very abusive father and he beats her up weekly and once she ends up in the hospital and soon after that she gets addicted to heroin and loses the H in the process of her self-destruction. And then I absolutely hated how in the end she "forgave" her father and they live together and we're supposed to feel sorry for this excuse of a man just because he has cancer. Fuck that shit.(hide spoiler)]Safety Gang: (view spoiler)[H/h meet when they were 16 and had their first kiss with each other. Later, when the h is high on drugs she mentions having given someone a BJ for some heroin. That was a betrayal to the H because they were still together at that time. I hated hearing that. We don't get any details if they have been with others during the separation but the H become a mess and a recluse, not a womanizer. But they both mention always loving each other and never having moved on.

The best Book Saint Nicholas ★★★★! Saint Nicholas (stand-alone). A heart-tugging tale of first loves, youth’s regrets & second chances!“I fell hard for the girl who’d become my everything.”Saint Nicholas (stand-alone) is a captivating, beautifully depicted coming-of-age tale of first loves and second chances.High school students Sarah Danniels and Nicholas Rossi, Nick aka Saint Nicholas met as teenagers. She was the quiet girl no one noticed until Nick. They called him Saint Nicholas for his noble ways. Raised in a one parent home he had stepped up to be the man of the house and now Sarah’s knight.Together they got to be each other’s firsts in many ways. They both thought it’d last would forever. But life had other ideas. Hiding behind the façade were secrets of abuse and hopelessness.It’d be years before their paths would cross again. Will they be able to piece together the could-have-beens of their once rose-colored view of life, happiness, love and ever-after?Six words to describe Nicholas Rossi, Nick aka Saint Nicholas: Noble, nurturing, caring, naïve, loyal and possessive.Eight words to describe Sarah Danniels: Meek, secretive, impressionable, kind, broken, odd, reserved and misunderstood.Saint Nicholas, told from dual POVs, is a beautiful and heartbreaking account of the innocent of youth, first loves, heartaches, violence, abuse, hopelessness and second chances. I was captivated by the time in their youth. The second half felt rushed at times. Story ends on a high, but I’d welcome an extended epilogue.Lyrical story-telling! Melt-your-heart hero! Engaging plot! Excellent debut!“Nicholas Rossi was the one thing I’d never been able to let go of.”***Hero rating: 4.5 stars Heroine rating: 4 starsSexual tension rating: 4 starsSex scenes rating: 4.5 starsSex scenes frequency: 4 starsPlot rating: 4 starsDialogue rating: 4.5 starsStorytelling rating: 5 starsStory ending rating: 4 stars**********************************************Overall rating: 4+ starsWould I recommend this book: Yes.Would I re-read this book: Maybe later.Would I read future books by this author: Yes.
