BLOG TOUR + REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: Nico by J.B. Hartnett



When I was a boy, I met a girl.
She didn’t know it then, but…
She changed me.
Now…..I am a man.
A man who is broken by the stories of the women who come to me.
They are my birds with broken wings.
I help them heal, help them to make them strong, so they can fly free.
Lark changed me. Loved Me. Made Me Strong.
With her, I am free.
I write…
To the girl of the past.
To the girl of my present.
And, the girl of my future.
Dear Dish….
**Although Nico is considered part of The Leaves Series, it can be read as a stand alone**

I loved the first two books of this series Inky & Cole, however Nico's story leaves you feeling that extra warm and bubbly inside, leaving you wanting to give your love ones a extra hug at night. The emotional journey your are taken on during the story is captivating from beginning to end.

The emotional journey you feel throughout from Nico was certainly enjoyable to read. The endless heartache you feel when Nico cannot replace that special friend he made from his childhood. To fill the void he continue to fight with the drink and meaningless sex. However, after meeting one particular women, his feelings begin to be felt again by Nico to try and find The One". 

Nico also has a special gift working his magic through being a tattoo artist. After helping Inky getting through her struggles, word of mouth gets around town soon as he welcomes many other women into his "birds" group who needs his help. Especially after the sad news from a very dear loved one, he experiences lifes too short. However, when he thought it was all over,Then enters Lark..

As Nico and Lark become friends, a relationship develops the conventional way by them getting to know each other.  Over time, both their stories are unfolded and love once again returns...

With interaction of characters from previous books it was great to see them featured throughout, especially with Inky & Cole's story continued. With another nail biting ending, J.B. certainly never disappoint! 

Overall another emotional captivating addition to the Leaves series leaving you feeling full of warm, tender and caring love that after a devastating past, you will always find your one true love regardless.

Most memorable quote from the book I loved:
"If you can find something or someone that gives you peace when everything else around you is chaos, never let go, baby."

“Nico…” she begged.
“What is it, babe?” In that moment, I was a tease. I was going to make sure I took this bad fuckin’ day and turn it into something she would remember happily.
“You know what I want,” she moaned.
“Don’t move.” I walked away, into the kitchen and dug into one of the bags. The store fuckin’ got me, what could I say. I was gonna barbeque in style next summer. But one thing my kitchen needed was a new spatula. Nice rubber handle, strong, and wide, flat, heatproof silicon…perfect for what I wanted. I came back and rubbed over her left cheek, pulled away for that perfect first contact and…

Julie is a Southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin) and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers).
She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she could be a singer songwriter...the 'writer' part is the one that stuck.
Julie is obsessed with pi...the equation(and the food). She's allergic to cats and cantaloupe and hates mushrooms...so if you ever want to give her a gift, those are out for sure.She currently lives with her own romance hero husband and two boys in Melbourne, Australia.
