REVIEW for The Pickup by Nikki Ash

Title: 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.

My Thoughts…

Two people meet at the club, hook up, and move on with their lives.   Until the girl comes back, pregnant, and is YELP! the bosses daughter.  Oh the heat, the sparks, and the attraction between them come right back with that second look at the football field.  I enjoyed how realistic Nick’s reaction to finding out he is going to be a dad,
he didn’t just embrace it, he questioned it, he reacted in shock, and he had to process it.   Liv doesn’t have the option of processing it, she has to take care of the baby and do what is right for herself.  

Olivia is a romantic, she wants the fairytale, the happy ever after, and won’t settle for a baby daddy.   Nick comes to realize that Olivia wants what he wants.    They want love, soul mates, and forever together.    Nick goes above and beyond to show Olivia that he can give her everything she wants and more.  I love how he romances her but he does it in an everyday way.    He gives her romance with his everyday actions and shows he is worthy of her by loving her and his son.  

This is my first Nikki Ash story and I loved it.   I am excited to read more by her.
