Told from dual third person perspectives (Nic and Anna) NIC focuses on the building relationship between Nic Rossi, and Anna Thompson. Anna and her young daughter Lacey are on the run. Three years since her divorce and Anna fears her ex-husband will make good on a promise to destroy her life. Abused and battered, Anna sought solace at a women’s shelter, and has been on the run ever since. Landing in Angel Bay, Washington Anna finds a job, a temporary home, and a man who calls to her heart. Enter single father Nic Rossi- a man whose own heart was shattered years before.
NIC is a story of ‘second chances’. As a single father Nic’s sole responsibility has been his daughter Ella but with the arrival of Anna Thompson Nic’s idea of family now came with the possibility of a future with Anna and her daughter Lacey. Anna is determined to stay one step ahead of her abusive ex but complacency finds Anna facing down her greatest fear.
The relationship between Anna and Nic is one of immediate attraction but Nic suspects Anna is running from a dangerous past. When Nic offers up his home to Anna and her daughter temptation is at hand. The sex scenes are intimate and romantic.
We are introduced to Anna’s co-worker Beth whose own past is mired in abuse. Nic’s brother Luc and his wife Liz, as well as their daughter Alyssa and nine month old Sam round out the family setting.
NIC is a story of family and friendship; betrayal and revenge; heartbreak and moving forward. NIC is also a story of one woman’s struggle to free herself from an abusive ex-an ex who is determined to take back what he believes is his. The premise is sensitive and dramatic; the characters are passionate and intense; the romance is emotional and intimate.
Put this one on the must read list. I highly recommend it.
Nic Rossi has avoided relationships ever since his wife left him, and instead, has concentrated on being a good father to his daughter. However, the moment Anna walks into his restaurant and asks him for a job, he can't help but want to give her a chance since it seems she hasn't had the easiest of times lately. When he learns the truth about her past, Nic will do anything he can to protect her. But when her ex-husband finally threatens her, it's going to take a miracle to convince her not to run again.
What a powerful and emotional read Ms. Stewart has penned with this second book of her Rossi Brothers series, which delivers a story about a couple healing each other from the hurts of a past relationship; a heroine's hope for a fresh start once she overcomes her past; and a hero determined to convince her that he's nothing like her ex. The way this story opened with Anna confronting Nic and enquiring about a job set the fast-pace of the story for me, because I wanted to know whether he'd give her a chance or not. Anna's been through a lot and needs a break, and Nic's kindness is refreshing for her. Something she desperately needs, if she's ever to trust a man again.
As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, and what happens to one of the main characters towards the end. The heroine has survived so much, and I couldn't help but feel sorry for her. She needs to feel safe again and the only way she's going to be able to do that is to face her past. Can she confide in Nic about everything she's been through? It's not something she can talk to anyone about easily, out of fear for her and her daughter's safety. Knowing what her husband would do if he ever discovered her whereabouts. She's been there, done that and not willing to suffer the pain he'd cause her again if he did find her. It's what made her a good mom. The way she was willing to do whatever it took to protect her daughter.
Nic was a fantastic hero, but it took a while for me to warm up to the heroine. I could understand why it seemed she was jumping at every shadow because of the hurt her ex caused her. Yet, at the same time, she needed to realize that she could trust people. Needed to realize that to claim her life back she needed people on her side; people like Nic and his family. Then again, I could understand her hesitancy with how dangerous her husband was. Indeed, she had some important decisions to make. Was she going to stay and fight her battle when the going got tough, or would she run again? However, as the story progresses she begins to show how strong she is with the decisions she does make. Decisions in how far she'll go to protect everyone she's coming to care for, even if it may be the wrong choice and causes her hurt.
While Nic, he's kind, caring, and would do anything to help someone. He's not looking for a relationship, and yet, there's something about Anna he can't resist. Besides, he's good for her in making her realize that there are good men in the world. Men like him that would never do the things her ex did to any woman. I also liked that he helped Anna whenever she really needed it. She couldn't continue to be haunted by what her husband did to her. Moreover, I liked the growing bond between Nic and the heroine's daughter.
Overall, this was a really good book that provided plenty of emotion and a strong romance that illustrated how a man should care for the woman he's coming to love. The way this story ended was intense due to what happens to one of the main characters, but I thought what happened to the heroine's ex was a little anti-climatic. Really, I was expecting a final confrontation between the heroine and her ex. However, in saying that, I did enjoy how things ended up for Nic and Anna. He wasn't about to let her go, not when she meant so much to him. I would recommend Nic by JM Stewart, if you enjoy the sexy protector trope or a hero that does everything in his power to show the heroine that she can trust him.
