Resisting Nick by Kris Pearson

Fit. Fierce. Furious.
Nick has the body and money he’s always aimed for, but while his fitness empire rages ahead, his soul is secretly shattered. His past is now a lie. He knows he should have seen it coming. The signs were all so obvious, looking back.

Shy. Sweet. Serious. New-in-town Sammie is sure she can cope with her angry new boss for the next few weeks. A short-term job is all she needs, but has fate given her the key to his true identity? Her sensible brain says ‘leave’. Her marshmallow heart says ‘stay’.

RESISTING NICK is a standalone The Wellington Romance.

About the Author

Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do. The first novel in her new Scarlet Bay trilogy - SUMMER SPARKS - is a lusty romp with a heartbreaking backstory threaded through it. The best of both. The second is SUMMER SECRETS. She's currently writing SUMMER SPICE, and this is available on pre-order. Five of her Wellington books have been published in sweeter editions under the author name of Kerri Peach. If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than two million copies have now been downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work with this one kick-started sales of all her others. Her seven Wellington Series novels are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. Her three Heartlands novels follow couples who live in more remote country areas of New Zealand. Her all-time best-seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh'. There's now also 'Desired by the Sheikh', and these are not quite your usual sheikh stories. Four books are now available in Spanish. There's a Spanish version of her website - click the flags at the top right of it to change languages. Five are currently being translated for China. ~ ~ ~ Kris es una chispeante autora de romántica contemporánea, pura y simplemente. ¡Bueno, quizá no tan pura!

Cuando hace buen tiempo se dedica a trabajar en el jardín y si llueve, a escribir, y cuando está inspirada y no puede dejar de escribir, el jardín puede cuidar de sí mismo. Es redactora publicitaria y decoradora especializada y autora de “La cama del constructor de barcos”, de la que se descargaron gratis más de un millón de copias en inglés, lo que permitió dar a conocer su trabajo e impulsar las ventas de todas sus demás novelas.

I liked this one. My biggest complaint would be that I wish there was more to the ending, it felt really rushed to me and I want to know about what happened with the characters.

It's a good read, I won't deny that. It starts out with Sammie and Nicky. They know each other from AWHILE ago, when Sammie was just starting to come of age. Of course, Nicky being 16 at the time, got a little curious. I'm not gonna describe the things in this book, for although I'd like to think that children don't read these reviews, an don't buy the books when they see a few "interesting" words, you can never be sure. I will say, Nicky seems to like Sammie even more now. But, he's also on a mission. He finds out he was adopted, and doesn't know who his mother, or father, is. Sammie tries to help, and is going through her late grandmother's diary one day. She sees Nicky's name, and finds out who his mom is. She's pretty surprised. But, then she finds something in Nicky's drawer at BodyWork's, where they both work. Nicky being the boss, and Sammie being his P.A. Sammie breaks it off with Nicky, not knowing the story. He tracks her down at the airport, and tells her the actual story. They travel to Italy, where Sammie helps reunite mother and son, and reunites with an old friend as well. Of course, this old friend is Nicky's mom. I would recommend this book for ages 18+. Violence, language, and other things in this book. Now, I know kids like to read about 1) violence. The violence in the book ain't too bad, just a few broken hands, maybe a bloody face... 2) language. Now, I know most of us have gone about our daily lives hearing simple phrases like "F***" or "A**" or even "You B******!" But this book has many more that I didn't know were said... And that brings us to 3) "Other things". Now, this is up to your parents, if your somewhere between 10-17. Of course, parents don't always put what I like to call... "Surveillence" on what their kids are reading. When I was younger, I used to sneak in "inappropriate" books. I was a teen, what else am I expected to do? I would "borrow" a book from mom or dad, and when they asked if I had seen it, I lied, said "no", and placed it in a place they would easily over-look it. Now kids, I am NOT giving you permission to do that. One day, I got sloppy. I kept it in plain view on my bed, because my parents almost NEVER came into my room. Well, it was mom's "cleaning day" and she came in after I went to school. When I got home that afternoon, I had a hand waiting for me. Mom asked if I knew where her book was, ad I said, "no, mama." Well, she pulled it from behind her back, and dad hit me about 5 times, give or take a few...
