4.5 Star Review:
What else can you say about NICO other than fabulous. I am so happy that I got the chance to read not one but all of the books in The Leaves Series.
When we first met Nico, he helped Inky in her struggle in a abusive relationship and he was absolutely perfect. His story is a lot of like a lot of the people that he help only because he is always there with them during their walks of life but he holds it all in. He has a strong family line that he can turn to but how is he able to deal with those that turn to him?
Nico is definitely a playboy but, he's free from being "tied down" and he lives his life to the fullest. When he met Lark, things seemed to go a different way from the beginning.
The funny thing about this book is his life is so full of "everything" that it was strange to me that he was able to balance it all out but also find what his heart was searching for.
Lark was this quirky girl who kept me laughing throughout the book. She was the yin to Nico's yang. They complimented each other in so many different way but the way things played out was so beautiful.
I loved Nico and Lark. Normally you love the men but Lark has my vote. She is so funny and she kept Nico where he needed to be, in check!!!
We sat there trying to catch our breath, her small giggle echoing against the foothills when I heard, “You two mind keeping it down now? Son, you know I’m proud you’re a man who can please your woman, but I also have a wife – your mother – who is running around the place turning on every radio and television to full blast because she can’t find her damn headphones,” I heard him chuckle as he walked away, mocking me, “Fuckkkkk,” and laughing his ass off.
