FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!

Nikki Ash never fails to bring out all my emotions with her writing. And let me tell you, The Pickup brought out A TON of them. My heart hurt, I raged, I cried, my heart melted, I laughed so hard it hurt, I fell madly in love and did I mention raged? Because for a minute there I wanted to throw my kindle across the room. Seriously though, Nikki Ash had me hooked immediately with this one truly hitting me right in the feels almost immediately and her writing kept me hooked all the way to the very end.

I can’t even begin to explain how much I loved Nick despite my early urge to throat punch him. Even when he thinks he’s given up his true dreams his romantic heart still manages to shine through in a way that will leave you breathless. The more he grows, the further he falls for Olivia the more I found myself absolutely loving everything about him. Olivia on the other hand was someone I adored right way. She’s brave, genuinely sweet and is just an all around beautiful person. These two have electric chemistry the moment they meet and it grows into something so much bigger and so much deeper throughout their story.

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.
