Review

Voted #3 of The 50 Best Indie Books of 2014 by ReadFree.ly. Over 20,000 votes were cast and For Nicky was in the TOP 3!!! 
"I have to say that this book was a very pleasant surprise. For Nicky is a well-rounded story that has many different layers to it. While it is a romance at its heart, it is also a social lesson about bullying, abuse and self-image." -Readers' Favorites Book Review

From the Author

LOVE. There are many facets of this emotion. Love of family. Love of friends. Love of self. Love of others. Romantic love.
This is a love story through and through. It's a story of a brother's unfailing love for his twin. It's a story of a girl's fight to get her sister back and find herself at the same time. It's a story of learning to let go of anger, standing up for yourself, and being kind to others. It's a story of love between a man and a woman despite the twists and turns that come their way.
This story came about after a year or so of watching a brother take care of his special-needs sibling during church service. I wondered about that brother's feelings toward his sibling. Love was obvious. Protector was clear. Burdened? It didn't appear that way. Guilty? Possibly. Nicky doesn't have the severe special needs that this sibling had, but Nicky faces his own challenges in life.
I also wrote this story because I despise bullying and the r-word. I wanted to share with my readers how painful and damaging both bullying and the word retard/retarded can be. I want my readers to finish this book with a better understanding of how words and actions can hurt. Or, maybe, my readers will finish this book with affirmation that the words and actions used against them did hurt and they have the right to feel upset by them.
I wrote this story for many reasons. My main reason is to share the story with my readers. I want nothing more than for you to enjoy this story and feel a range of emotions from start to finish. If that happens, I can say I accomplished what I set out to do.
Happy Reading!
A.D. Ellis

Wow this book touched on a multitude of issues. They were woven into the story line , concise, truthful even to the point of being blunt. Shows not anyone is perfect and there always parts of us that could use some help. Nate for the way he took up for Nicky, Audrey for a whole lot of things and Elizabeth for allowing others to walk all over her.
To the romance part of the book. I loved how Nate and Libby came together and took the time to slowly learn about each other. As to the next book, I enjoy A.D. Ellis's writing so I will give Audrey a chance.

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 this book with a smile on your face. Good job A.D. Ellis!

This debut novel by A.D Ellis is a Contemporary Romance that I think can be enjoyed by anyone 17+. Even more than the element of romance are the life lessons that can be learned in this book. It is about friendship, insecurities, addiction and bullying.

Nate Morgan has spent his whole life fighting and protecting his little brother Nicky from people bullying him, saying hurtful things to him or treating him differently. Nate has never formed an emotional relationship with anyone or allowed anyone to get too close due to this protective and brotherly bond he has with Nicky. He found that fighting, meaningless sex and running were the only outlets he had for his anger/stress over the situations in his life.

Elizabeth Decker has lived in the shadows of her younger sister Aubrey her whole life. They lost their mother at a very young age and then lost their father to addiction and depression. He was there but only a shell of his former self so this left them to only depend on each other. Aubrey has always bullied Elizabeth and condoned other people throughout their school years to do it as well. The constant ridicule and alienation has caused Elizabeth to view herself as a freak and retreat into herself. She always found an escape in the books she read so it was only natural for her to become a librarian, it was the place she was most comfortable.

Nicky Morgan has lived his whole life "different" from other people. He knows that his brother has sacrificed real relationships with people in order to protect him but now he wants to see Nate happy. He wants him to fall in love and have babies. His new librarian would be perfect for Nate and Nicky loves her so he really doesn't see why Nate wouldn't.

I was gifted this book for an honest review...Where do I begin on this story. This story was so real and was very well written. It is about two brothers, Nate and Nicky. They are twins, but Nicky is simple because of complications during delivery. Nate always feels like he has to stand up for his brother, so when he hears someone teasing his brother, there is always a fight. As Nate and Nicky grow up, Nate still feels like he needs to take care of situations that involve Nicky.

Nate is a very complicated man with issues of his own, until he meets Nicky's librarian/friend, Elizabeth and then all things turn differently. Elizabeth is a girl that has been put down by her sister her entire life and is always down on herself. Her sister Aubrey, is the kind of girl that she is better than anyone else, because she is a beautiful blonde hair, blued eyed girl. Aubrey is also a bully, which makes you not like her in the book.

Nate and Elizabeth really end up helping each other along the way in the book and they also have their ups and downs throughout it too. This book was really good and makes you think about bullies and people with disabilities. I will definitely be recommending it to all of my friends, who like reading REAL stories about life!

How many times can you be knocked down & get back up again? Especially when it by someone who is supposed to love you unconditionally...

Libby is a beautiful young woman who has everything going for her.. She just doesn't realise it & the reason why is astounding!

Nate is the ultimate big brother who will do anything to protect his twin, Nicky, Even if his behaviour is unacceptable.

Then there is Audrey... I'm not going to lie, you are not going to like her!!

And of course Nicky, sweet loveable Nicky!

A.D Ellis has brought these 4 people to life brilliantly in a story that is not just a romance but a real journey of self discovery for all of them. I'm not going to spoil the book for anyone that hasn't read it, but I will say this is a must read! Oh & don't misunderstand me, there is lots & lots of steamy scenes in here too!!! I would go as far as to say I would be surprised if anyone read this book & didn't like it!! It was a fabulous story & I am so glad I 1 clicked!!!
I cannot wait to see what A.D Ellis gives us next, I am sure it will be just as fabulous as For Nicky if not better!!!!!
