BOOK REVIEW- RESISTING NICK by Kris Pearson
A man with a shattered soul becomes total temptation for a girl with a marshmallow heart.
Fitness center entrepreneur Nick Sharpe is under siege. His business is going ballistic and his PA has left without giving notice. He’s offered to donate bone marrow to his desperately ill niece and been told he’s not genetically compatible. Not related. Reeling from the shock of finding he was adopted, Nick has no patience left for his new temp, Samantha – however much she attracts him or rubs him up the wrong way.
Sammie Sherbourne’s sure she can cope with her demanding new boss for the next week or two. Finally free to spread her very cramped wings after a long family crisis, she wants a short-term job until her passport arrives so she can follow her travel dreams. But the possibility that she might hold the key to unlock Nick’s true identity eats at her – far more than his money or spectacular body do.

This story starts out fairly slowly but it does make for a good foundation for the book. At times, it almost seemed too slow for me.
Nick and Sammi have a history, but they don't realize it at first. Well, Sammi begins to suspect who he is before Nick does. I liked both of the M.C's and their struggles about their different goals. Nick knows what he wants, more time with her but Sammie just CAN'T give up her dream to travel the world. It's a long held dream that has had to be delayed way too many times because of family issues. There were times when it felt like that was repeated just a few times too many.
Nick was feeling like he was gut punched when he found out he was adopted. Like Nick said, it explained a lot of why he didn't seem to fit with his "family." His yearning for answers was gnawing at him too. Also the fear that after 30 years he might never know his true parentage, or why he was tossed away.
Tyler was an additional good secondary person in the book. She is a VERY pregnant woman who was Nick's former assistant. She helps Sammie get into the swing of her job. She appears in the story from time to time.
There is a good, unexpected twist towards the end of the book
