New From Nikki Ash -- The Pickup

Series: Imperfect Love Book 1
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Sports Romance Standalone
Release Date: February 7, 2019

Somebody once said we don’t decide who we love. The world decides for us. But I disagree.
I believe love is a decision.
Who we love, how we love.
It’s in our control--in our hands.
I grew up having no clue about the true meaning of love. Money. Cars. Houses. Status. Fame. That’s what love means to the people around me.
It wasn’t until the woman I picked up in a bar came back into my life and showed me love can be so much more.
So, what’s the problem?
The woman I’m falling in love with believes in fairytales. She compares everything to a storybook and wants the happily-ever-after.
So while she’s stuck on recreating stories that have already been told, page by page, I’m showing her it’s time we write our own book.
Nobody ever said the journey of falling in love would be easy, just that it would be worth it.


Most would say Nick Shaw lives a charmed life – professional football player with all the fame, fortune and women a guy could ask for. When a one-night stand comes back into his life after ghosting him the morning after, all that changes. Then there are the issues with his parents, who seem to be in his corner and have given him everything money can buy. Sadly, we all know money can’t buy love. 

I really liked Nick and Olivia, but they both had their issues and needed to learn a few things, which made them all the more authentic and likeable. Nick learns some great lessons about the things in life that really matter, and Olivia has her eyes opened and sees beyond the fairy-tale-colored glasses she's worn her whole life. I loved all the secondary characters and thought they added life and color to the story. 

This one didn’t have the flow and polish, or hit me deep in the heart, as other books from this author have. But after Unbroken Promises, followed by Heath, it's entirely possible my expectations have exponentially increased with both of those phenomenal books. Still, this was a fun read that had me connecting with the characters, and I’m really looking forward to reading Killian and Giselle's book when it comes out.

Much love between the covers,
