REVIEW: Nixon by Samantha Whiskey

SYNOPSIS

NIXON 

I’m the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL because I know how to read the field.

I control the plays—and my life—with absolute precision.

Until Liberty Jones delivers the ultimate hit to my blind side with a story about two pink lines.

The beautiful, free-spirited brunette has starred in my dreams since she disappeared after our wild weekend in Vegas, but I’ve been burned before. No way in hell am I falling for that line again.

But Liberty is the complete opposite of my ex—she’s smart, compassionate, sexy as hell, and couldn’t care less about my money or status.

In fact, she’s leaving as soon as she finishes her doctorate.
And the baby she’s planning to raise alone? It’s mine—and I want them both.

She certainly doesn’t need me, but she can’t deny our sizzling chemistry.

I can’t deny that I’m losing my infamous control and falling for her.

For the first time in my life, I’m not the only one calling the plays, and one snap decision could crush our happily ever after.

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * * 

As soon as this trailer was leaked I knew I was going to love it, then to see it was a character we have already met and gotten love in 1 (kinda of 2) books, it made this read even more amazing and I was so glad I got one of the first peeks at it.

I love Nixon that while he is twin to Nathan Noble who I have come to love in the Sharks and Reapers series, he is his own person with his own dreams and love of a special sport. He is also shown to want to memorialize their lost brother in his own way. You get to see a bit more about what happened to that brother and how is really did effect Nixon and how he has approached his professional career, as well as how he feels his family views him.

I love Liberty for Nixon because while they have something in their lives that will tie them together for minimum 18 years, she does not want to lose that independence she has created and was not looking for love. She was no looking and it just happened with a mixture of the love of Football, and a lot of alcohol that created the perfect storm for this strong woman to see that independence doesn’t mean having to go it alone.

In true Samantha Whiskey fashion the female lead is just that a lead, she is not a wishy washy person, she is strong and amazing and a character that you love from the start to the end and watching their story grow and change.

I love the ground work in this book for the future books in the series, you know who is coming, for the most part, and you can guess who is getting a book, whose you want to see and see their story. But it does not take away from Nixon and Liberty in the slightest. Actually is grown their story and solidifies the bonds they have with their friends. (PS I want to read Romans Story like yesterday!)

As much as I love Samanthas books, the story lines, the characters and the families she builds in them I have never given her a 5 star (I don’t think, if I did it would be Axel), but I am giving her a 5 Star on this book because she is building a great series and a great new family here… And I don’t even like football, I am Canadian and a Hockey Girl through and through (RIP Colby Cave)

I recommend this book to any one and everyone! You don’t even have to know Nathan Noble and his story to understand what is going on with Nixon, he really is a one of a kind character.
