She's a girl who will stop at nothing to control anyone and everything around her. She craves power and doesn't care if she has to hurt Elizabeth to get it.

Nathaniel Morgan has spent his whole life fighting for his twin brother, Nicholas. Somewhere along the way, he lost himself. Now he's just getting by.

Meet the Author

A.D Ellis was born and raised in a small farming town in southern Indiana. An avid reader from the time she learned to read, A.D. could often be found curled up somewhere with her nose in a book. Most of her friends were not such book enthusiasts which earned her a few snickers when she was constantly reading.
A.D. had always dreamed of being a teacher. She earned her degree in Elementary Education from Indiana State University in 1999 and her Master's Degree from Indiana Wesleyan in 2003. A.D. has been teaching in the inner city of Indianapolis for 15 years. While she's taught several different grades, fourth grade is her favorite. They are learning independence by 4th grade, but most haven't learned the attitude yet. A.D. loves teaching fractions, variables, probability, and graphing in Math. She loves almost all aspects of English Language Arts. Figurative language, theme, making predictions, drawing conclusions, inference, context clues, making writing come to life, A.D. loves it all! Her students may not be in agreement with that excitement.
A.D. met her husband in college in 1996 and they married in June of 2000. A.D. lives in a south side suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband and two school-aged children. When she's not reading or writing with music blaring, she can be found shopping at thrift stores, reading to her children, and running.
A.D. had always pondered the idea of writing a book, but until recently it was a far off dream. In today's age of independently published authors, A.D. decided to take a chance and try her hand at writing. She has learned so much during this journey and is having a world of fun with it.

Sweet simple romance

"I have just read For Nicky by A.D Ellis. I love this book and I haven't been taken back emotionally by a book in so long. The book and its characters have stayed with me for days after finishing it. I do think that it could be because I work with people with Intellectual Disabilities so I can resonate with this book 100%. I loved every single second of it, its so rare for me to slow down when reading, normally I sped up to see how it book will end but with this book I had to slow down as I didn't want to finish it. The book was very detailed so it was easy to visualize characters, places etc. The storyline was beautifully executed and I especially loved the different POVs I thought it worked extremely well. The chapters were short and sweet so it was easy to get back into the story when I had to put the book down. The characters had realism to them and you can see their development throughout the story. I am a small bit conflicted by the way a situation turned out in the book. I can see why the author choose to write the outcome as she did but I'm still conflicted over it just because I think it would have turned out differently but I'm intrigued to read Audrey's story in book two to find out why she did what she did. I would recommend this contemporary romance book for anyone who loves a very well written story and it makes you think about how your own words and actions can easily influence others. I think A.D Ellis is becoming one of my new favourite authors and I'm excited to read what she writes next."

review * I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review. * A.D. Ellis did a fantastic job on her debut novel For Nicky. It was written as if this were her 100th novel and not her first. The writing style was spot on and it flowed from start to finish. The book touches on a lot of real issues that happen to people everyday. There was bullying, anger, rape, addiction, trust issues and even an intervention to show that authors aren't just interested in a happily ever after story I loved the way that she developed the characters and I could feel some of the emotions that they were feeling throughout the story. I could personally feel the anger, frustration and helplessness of Nate, as I have a disabled brother-in-law and we often get the staring, rude remarks and snickers when we are out in the community, however, I love the way the author handled Nate getting over his spontaneous reactions and working towards a non-violent or confrontational way to deal with it. Reading this book can really put into perspective and help others to understand how hurtful calling someone with a disability a "retard" really can be. In our lives today a lot of us use "retard" as a word to use just to express some feelings, and the author shows what it does to others, and I love the way the message came across from her. The themes of the story are very real and very relatable as the author tells it. They were woven into the story line and were short, concise and truthful. Anyone reading this book should clearly see how there is not anyone that is perfect and there always parts of us that could use some help or changing. The descriptions that the author uses of the Fall party made me feel as if I were there, I could picture Beth's room as she tried different outfits on getting ready for her dates and I felt the love the characters had for each other as well as the frustration that they could feel. The author was amazing at drawing the pictures so that the reader had a clear view of what was going on. I enjoyed the banter between the characters and it just flowed like any conversation between friends would. There were no "rich" boyfriends that made the story predictable, as the reader you really had no idea where the story was going. I enjoyed everything about the story from start to finish. This book is a MUST Read to any and all, you won't be disappointed and I know that the book will leave you thinking, wondering and pondering things that you do or say without ever realizing that it is happening. I loved this book and am looking forward to many, many more by her! This author is a great one and I can't wait to read her next book and see how Audrey is handling life after her intervention. ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official. **

What a heartwarming love story. Nate and Libby are a true match. Their emotions are fresh and raw. You will feel like you are actually there while they are getting to know each other and falling in love. Nate is such a strong and loving man. You get to see thru his eyes what it is like to deal with a family member with a disability. How he protects his brother is truly moving. It opens your eyes to the daily struggles people go thru and makes you appreciate them even more. Libby is so kind and sweet yet she deals daily with being bullied. You can't help but root for these two. You will be hooked from the beginning. Going from laughing to crying to being heartbroken to a hopefully happily ever after. It is a special treat to be able to read this book. You will definitely finish it with a smile on your face. Good job A.D. Ellis!
