Nash dreamed of having a family together with August. She's planning to have many more beautiful kids. She's learning to adjust to the life of being a fulltime mom. Nash is a nurse and she'd love to take on a few shifts every now and then. She misses the adrenaline that comes with the job and she loves helping people. Nash almost paid with her life when August's secrets were revealed. Will she be able to escape them once again?
August is a proud man. He paid the dues for his father's wrongdoings and is ready to leave all those secrets behind. August fiercely loves Nash. He would do anything to keep her and his daughter safe. August has one best friend, Sam. Sam was once bound to a wheelchair, but with August's help he's walking again. August doesn't care about money and he loves spending it on his family. It warmed my heart to read about how strongly he loves them. He has a funny way of showing
this sometimes, but he's doing everything with the best intentions. August is a person you'd want to have in your corner, because he'll never leave you once he considers you a part of his family.
Nash is very capable of handling August. He has the tendency to try and overrule her, but she stands her ground every time. She's not a pushover and I loved that about her. Nash is also a skilled nurse and I liked to read about this part of her life. Kelly Moore is a nurse as well and the details in her story show that she has extensive knowledge about this subject. Nash is a loving daughter and a great mom. She takes good care of the people around her. Nash is someone who is impossible not to love.
This August is the second book in the Next August series and continues with August and Nash's story. I fell in love with both of them in the first book, Next August, and I was excited to read about the next chapter of their journey together. August and Nash connect on a deeper level and I felt this love on every page. I loved the amazing chemistry between them and think Kelly Moore has written a fantastic sexy book. This August has a few other characters that would be perfect for a story of their own. I can't wait to find out what Kelly Moore has in store for us in the next book of this series.
Once again, I found the writing and dialogue easy to follow, as well as, the characters very relatable. These characters face several realistic challenges, ups, and downs throughout the story, as well as, realistic accomplishments and happy moments. The conflict and suspense are not over the top, but also quickly grab your interest pushing you to read on to find out what will happen. I love that Kelly Moore weaved suspense into this romance without it challenging Nash and August’s feelings for one another and what they want. Despite the conflict and issues, it’s comforting knowing that the occurrences are beyond their control, rather than the result of their personal actions. Moore also focused on and developed relationships other than the main couple, especially between August and Sam. The reader really gets to experience how close they are and the bond between them in this novel, although it is heart-wrenching at times.
For any fan of romance with that little something extra, I highly recommend “This August.” This novel has everything you need for a great read – romance, sexy chemistry, suspense, and the bonds between family and friends. Note that this is not a book to plan on reading over a period of days because once you start reading, you won’t want to do anything else until you finish, AND you do need to read “Next August” first to really get everything this book has to offer. I continue to be so excited and impressed with Kelly Moore, who is such a strong force in this genre. She has quickly filled my Kindle and physical bookshelves, and I look forward to much more from her in the future!
*Many thanks to the wonderful Kelly Moore for providing a copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This book was exciting. It has suspense, love, laughter and family. I love Nash’s best friend Anna. Anna and August have a relationship where they try to drive each other crazy, but really like each other. They make me laugh. I just love Sam. He has come so far physically and matured. I am hoping there is going to be a book about him next! I think everyone would love to have a relationship like August and Nash have. I really like how August chilled out from his uptown, business stance to a jean wearing cowboy. He is so loving and takes care of the people he loves. He is such a good person. This is a great book that I strongly encourage you to read.
