Book Description

Samantha Leyton believes she is a fraud.

Her mother attempts to ignore her baggy clothes and sour attitude. Her ex-boyfriend, Brad, can't fathom why she dumped him or why she no longer dates. Her art teacher is dubbing everything she paints some degree of "disturbing" or "troubled". Samantha's old artwork is hidden in her closet, her bedroom walls are painted black, and constant nightmares torment her, but she’s terrified to provide anyone with an explanation.

She believes she will never be whole again because the truth is far more terrifying than the lies she’s told herself and everyone else. She intends to keep her rape a secret forever.

When Charlie Cartwright, an old from her past, resurfaces, his family is in crisis. Despite the fact that his father has been shot in the line of duty, he notices immediately, that something is wrong with Samantha and is determined to find out what happened to the girl he used to know.

In the midst of the chaos, a vendetta against Charlie's family surfaces and Samantha is in a unique position to help him, however she knows she must maintain her distance. She is sure that if he gets too close, he will see her for what she believes she is: a fraud wearing a purity ring.

As they inevitably grow closer, she strengthens her resolve, challenges her own reclusive choices, and encounters a love more powerful than anything she ever could have imagined.

When the vendetta reaches its boiling point, Samantha finds herself caught in the crossfire where more than her own life hangs in the balance. When she finally comes face-to-face with the vengeful man who haunts her nightmares, she must survive an arduous test of her wits and character, even if it means nothing will ever be the same.

Samantha Leyton is a broken girl who cannot find a way to recover. She wears baggy clothes, dyes her hair black, needs a so called "attitude adjustment" and has a rule that says she can and won't ever date. Her mother, her best friend Annabelle, and her ex boyfriend, Brad, have no idea what's going on with her and no one does except herself. But she wasn't always like this. It all started with a terrifying predicament of her past that lead her to who she was. Then she unexpectedly reunites with a old 'friend' from the past who changes everything; his name is Charlie Cartwright. Charlie struggles with serious problems that could be a matter of life and death and Sam decides to help him even through her confused feelings about him. Throughout the book Charlie and Samantha grow closer and closer which not only makes a cute romance but a successful way to get Sam out of her shell.

This book really surprised me. It had a lot of surprises and twists and turns that I did not see coming. It was a mix of mystery, romance, and suspense. There were a few spelling errors though. But overall I really recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!! August 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If I had to boil this book down to a single word that word would be engaging. As you read No Man Sam you are taken into the world of a teen who was bullied and the lasting effects that it can have on a person. The changes that occur. The decisions you make because of it. Everything wrapped around a hurt that was developed. What Kristen helps us see through the circumstances in No Man Sam is that when we are at the bottom it will take an extreme catalytic event to bring us out of it and put us back on the right track. What truth that holds. That so often we fall into despair that we need something huge and life changing to bring us out of it. I highly recommend this thought provoking book wrapped is a clever story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love is patient December 27, 2014
By Anne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this book five stars because the story was amazing and truly heart felt you can tell the writer had strong emotions when writing this. I loved every second of it especially when I was able to compare my artistic dreams with the main characters dreams. This was a brilliant love story featuring two people who fought for each other no matter how hard it got and I have to say that it was amazingly written. I have no dislikes at all I feel the author did wonderfully and I would recommend this book to everyone. It was a tear jerking romance that will surprise you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful July 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You would never know that this is Kristen's first book. Kristen did an amazing job of catching the reader's attention and maintaining it throughout the story; at no time did I feel bored. The characters are 3 dimensional and she wrote them in a way that makes you feel vested in their lives and happiness.
Looking forward to seeing what Kristen comes out with next.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoroughly enjoyable read! July 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful book! I could not put it down and stayed up until midnight to finish it. Never a dull moment, it was just so easy to get lost in the story. I could definitely see this book being made into a movie. I was sorry for it to end and can't wait for the next book!

I would recommend this novel to anyone dealing with this sort of trauma in their lives. It was recommended by a friend and I could not put it down. The growth and healing available to those who seek healthy relationships is a highlight of the novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Man Sam July 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not bad for a first novel. I sometimes lose interest when it gets unrealistic, like when the kids were allowed to star in their town's school play. They can't go out and take a walk but this was allowed. .....not! I do look forward to another!

More About the Author

Hi! I'm Kristen Nannini, author of No Man Sam. I really appreciate you taking the chance to check out my page! Also, please feel free to check out for more info on my upcoming projects or just to say hi! :)

I'm a person who is always up for a challenge, be it simple or massive. Writing No Man Sam was one of the hardest, and yet one of the greatest challenges I've ever taken on. My goal was to write a story that meant something to someone. I wanted to write a fiction story about topics near and dear to my heart that could entertain, but also could help someone dealing with a similar situation. I hate soapboxes, so I will never lecture, but if something I've written happens to help someone, I'm thrilled! I read and appreciate every single review and take each and every review I receive to heart. So, love my work, or hate it, please don't hesitate to review it if you feel so inclined. :)

For anyone who is interested in my background, I was raised and live in South Florida. I am married to a great man and we recently adopted a rescue puppy who has stolen my heart. I have a day job that has nothing to do with writing, which is good, because I come home and can't wait to get back to writing. It's my passion and No Man Sam is just the beginning of many books to come.

I am so thankful that you took the time to check out my author page! I really appreciate you stopping by and I promise to keep this page updated as often as possible! I have a Young Adult trilogy on the horizon and can't wait to tell you all about it soon!

Take Care and God Bless!
