When I really love a book, I have to separate out the review because it won't be short and sweet. I am so impressed and in love with J Nathan's Since Drew! When a book can mind fuck me, that's great, but this book mind fucked me three times and I never saw it coming! Nathan is such a fabulous writer!

All Andi Parker has ever wanted, all she’s ever dreamed of, is a spot on the Olympic track team. But when an accident leaves her hospitalized with serious injuries and shattered dreams, she’s not only uncertain what her future holds but also completely alone.
Drew Slater is a wanted man. Professional football teams want him for his arm. Women want him for his irresistible good looks and charming personality. But the well-crafted disguise he wears, the one that helps him score on and off the field, hides secrets. Conceals lies. Threatens the happiness of everyone around him.
One chance encounter brings Andi and Drew together, changing their worlds in ways they never thought possible. Unfortunately, what they thought they knew about themselves—and each other—might just be the biggest lie of all.
I was given an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. Touchdown and the two point conversion is what J. Nathan has with this story! I rarely get so thrown off in a book, let alone three freaking times! This novel was an emotional roller coaster for me. I laughed, became teary eyed, screamed, and gasped throughout the entire thing! Nathan, you have won my heart and taken my soul with this story.
The story is focused on Andi and Drew, two athletes from very different walks of life. Andi is strong, witty, sweet, sarcastic, and honest. She loves running and was on track to qualifying for the Olympics before an accident lands her in the hospital without the use of her legs. In the hospital is where we meet Drew. Drew is snarky, angry, sarcastic, sweet, loving, tender, and complicated all rolled up into one hot package. Drew was the star quarterback at Duke University scheduled for the draft, headed to the NFL.
This story has three wicked plot twists that you never see coming. The characters develop and their love is so beautiful that it is almost painful. There's laughter, there's heartache, there's confusion, and there's the almighty happy ending we all desire and love. This book is a must read and I can almost guarantee you won't put it down until you've read the last page. I dare you not to scream, cry, and fall in love with Drew Slater.
