Publisher's Summary

From USA TODAY best-selling author S.M. West comes an opposites attract stand-alone romance about broken trust, dangerous secrets, and second chances.

I wanted to stay, but left to keep her safe, only to return with a world of danger.

I’m a wanderer with no roots and no future. She’s a nurturer with dreams of a home filled with family. We never stood a chance. Or at least that’s what I tell myself.

I left her. No note. No text or call. No explanation. It had to be like that—the only way to keep her safe. Until danger drags me back into town and my worst fear comes true. Willow’s life is in the hands of a ruthless bully.

While we race to uncover my family’s deadly secrets and end the threat, her distrust eats at me. I can’t blame her. I lied to her, broke her trust, maybe even her heart, though I did it for the right reasons. Determined to do everything in my power to protect her, I’m forced to face a bitter truth. 

I don’t deserve her and she may never forgive me, but I can’t walk away.

Fell short

I struggled tp finish this one. The narration was great, but the story was lacking for me. I didn't feel the chemistry between our MCs and so the story didn't capture my attention or keep me engaged. I also felt the story tried to be suspenseful whlie thinking what's the point?

So Sexy

So I was right, this series is very good. With the right amount of steamy and sexy scenes, the action give it the perfect blend. This story was my favorite out the series. I really like Willow and Logan. Waiting for them to get over they're issues with each other was kinda agonizing. It's like kiss already. The narrators did a fantastic job, I like when Cj Bloom is the narrator of the book I'm listening to. Connor Crais is new to me but I liked him a lot.

Stand alone story with excellent narration

Nomad is a stand alone book in the Scarred Hearts series. You don't have to read the first two books to enjoy this one, but the characters from previous books do appear frequently in this one if you prefer to read in order. Like the last book in the series, this one also starts with main characters who use to be in a relationship. However, the separation was only a gap of 4 weeks so it was a little like picking up in the middle of a story. At times it felt like I missed something between books 2 and 3 that contained more of Logan & Willow's story, but it wasn't critical to the events of this book. Like the rest of the series, this book is fast-paced with a lot of action and suspense.

I listened to the audiobook, and Connor Crais and CJ Bloom did a great job with the narration. Like the other books in this series, the performances have been awesome and enhance the story. I would recommend listening to the audiobook.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request, and the opinions here are my own.

Action packed with great plot twists!

"Nomad" is an action-packed, steamy, and heartfelt second chance romance that never lets up on the suspense and the twists and turns kept me listening to see what would happen next.

Ever since his mom died and his dad went to prison, Logan (AKA Nomad) has used to being on his own. He stays away from people, so they don't get hurt. Willow is a nurse and friends with Caro, Kit and the rest of the crew. Her house is under renovation and she's been staying in Kit's loft while it's being worked on. There she runs into Logan and after he leaves without a goodbye but the chemistry they have is still there. However, Logan's past with his estranged family is catching up with him and he vows to protect Willow from it all.

I loved all the suspense in Willow and Logan's story. There was so much going on and I needed to know who was doing what and why. There were a couple plot twists that were thrown in and I didn't see them coming. Willow is a sweet and caring woman who wants to help everyone she can, especially the patients she works with at the nursing home. Logan is a great guy who went through some terrible things but was doing what he could to make things right again. Logan really comes full circle when he realizes his friends care about him, especially Willow.

C) Bloom and Connor Crais were the perfect choices for Willow and Logan. CJ brought all of Willow's emotions to life, I loved listening to her. Connor was great, per the norm. I enjoyed his gruffy voice for the "bad guy" of the story.

Undeniable Bond

This book is an amazing, heart stopping, slow burn second chance book. Once I started listening I could not stop. All the suspense and action kept me glued to every word. Definitely had me on the verge of tears a few times. Logan returns to Toronto after his Uncle Clive contacts him and threatens him. Logan unintentionally puts Willow in harms way. After so many unfortunate events it all comes to a head and it is revealed Willow has a guardian angel that helps put everything to a close. These two have an undeniable connection and I love how everything is wrapped up and they get their happy ending. Once again all the key players from the previous books are front and center and play key roles in the outcome. Love this whole series so far.
I was sent a free audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Suspenseful

SM West kept me guessing what would happen next in Nomad’s story. The suspense, secrets, and familial disappointment kept me invested in what would happen between Logan and Willow. Logan’s protective instincts led him to make mistakes that could have been costly for both he and Willow. On the other hand, Willow’s trusting nature, nosiness and determination to insert herself in a situation that she was warned away from several times also placed them in grave danger. Thankfully, with the help of great friends and a well meaning admirer, they were able to get their happily ever after. CJ Bloom and Connor Crais did a fantastic job with narration. I look forward to more of this series.

Suspenseful second chance romance!

Nomad is a second chance, opposites attract romance. Willow and Nomad’s story is twisty and suspenseful with plenty of drama and will-they-won’t they moments to keep me glued to the story.

C.J. Bloom and Connor Crais do an excellent job narrating, but I have to say that Connor Crais really knocked it out of the park for me. He was the perfect Nomad and made getting lost in the story a treat!

Opposites Attract Romance

Nomad by S.M West is a opposites attract romance that I listened to on audio narrated by C.J. Bloom and Connor Crais. This is the third book in the Scarred Hearts series and can be read as a standalone.

I loved the relationship that bloomed between Logan and Willow. Their relationship was a bit messy but you couldn't help but root for them. I really enjoyed getting both of their points of view throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

C.J. and Connor did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would recommend this book if you like opposites attract romances, second chance romances, contemporary romance, or romantic suspense.

A Second Chance Romance

I really enjoyed this second chance style novel. The characters were fun to follow and I enjoyed the plot line. I would say this book is on the lower end of spicy as far as other novels I have read. I also found it to drag and be repetitive at times when going into some character developments throughout the novel. Despite that I still really enjoyed the story and would recommend it to others. The narrators were not my favorite, but they did a decent job.

Search for the Black Box

Logan and Willow have... quite the... adventure... to go with their reunion. The story kept me engaged all the way through and I really enjoyed it - including the steamy reunion that required much practice to get just right. 🔥❤💥🎉

I really like how Logan slowly realizes the error of his ways, especially how his pick-up-and-leave-without-telling-anyone might actually leave those who care about him hurt and lost. I also like how he begins to occasionally ask for help.

As for Willow, she has the patience of a saint, especially with Logan and her questionably responsible brothers. I would not have been so understanding. 🤔😄

I received an author's copy of the audio book. The narrators are CJ Bloom and Connor Crais. I've enjoyed several books that each has brought sound to and I was very happy to have them in my ears. I like CJ a lot but Connor? I love his voice. It melts me like butter.

3.5 Stars!

Nomad is the third book within the Scarred Hearts series (and the first one I have read so far). It features our mains Logan and Willow who embark on a second chance romance after some time apart following Logan ghosting Willow for unknown reasons.

I must admit I was a bit sceptical of Logan at first due to him ghosting Willow. I wasn’t sure if he would be redeemable. But he had his reasons and was only trying to keep Willow safe.

Overall, a nice suspense-filled, action-packed second chance romance. Logan and Willow’s chemistry definitely stood out.

I listened to the audio version of this book which was narrated by C.J. Bloom and Connor Crais. I loved the narration, and both narrators really brought out the characters!

I was provided a free audio copy of this book. However, all opinions shared are my honest thoughts about this book.

Wow

The dual narration of C.J. Bloom and Connor Crais, is brilliant . Both make listening a joy .

Logan had to leave Willow to protect her from his uncle, Fate has a way of changing plans . Logan finds himself back and danger and events follow him and Willow.

Logan will go to any lengths to protect those that he loves. Willow see through his walls and accepts him for who he is. She’s fierce and independent and fight for herself and those she loves. These two are brilliant together.

This book has suspense , a mystery , action , twists and turns and romance.

What a fantastic romantic suspense!

Combine a second chance romance and thrilling suspense and what do you get? SM West's latest installment of the Scarred Hearts series! Nomad is just that. Pulling me in from the first chapter, Logan had me wondering exactly what was going on! He is a nomad, wandering everywhere by where his loved ones are. His uncle is about to be released from jail, and he thinks Logan has something that he deserves to have and will do anything to get it. Leaving Willow was not easy, but keeping her safe was more important. Turning up in her house now though is not only an unwelcome surprise, but causing feelings to flow right back in for both of them. Will Logan be able to keep her safe? Will Willow be able to control her hurt and love? What will Clive do to get what he wants? Tune in to this story, you will be in for the wild ride! With Willow's fun family and the excitement the race for answers, I was invested in the story and didn't want to stop listening until I knew who to trust and the outcome! I had hunches, but with all the twists and turns, I was kept on edge and surprised at every turn. Plus a cameo Kit gave us a glimpse of where he is now too! This is an amazing listen!

Connor Crais and CJ Bloom. I don't need to say more. Storytellers that know how to fall into character and keep me captivated for hours, these two had my full attention. Crais has such an amazing voice. He holds a warmth for Logan, showing us the love he has for Willow and turns on a dime as the evil Clive, bringing fear and suspense! Bloom is always fantastic, and she gives us Willow, strong, willing to help and almost fearless with her personality. I love, love, love this team and truly enjoyed their performance.

A Wild & Thrilling Ride! Amazing Story & Listen🎧

This is an amazing romantic suspense, dark, edgy and action packed, takes you to the edge of your seat and has you wondering what is going to happen next. The story sweeps you right in, grabbing your attention and captivating it the entire time. The characters are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with, except for the bad guys, they are easy to care about too. Logan, aka Nomad, left town to protect those he cared about, he has avoided calls from his most hated Uncle Clive, but he gets his attention in another way and it is not good. Clive is being released from prison and Logan has something he wants and he will do anything to get it, including hurting anyone he cares about. Logan has no choice but to go back and deal with him and his goons. But he had promised to his mother he would not let Clive get his hands on what he wants and that is his intention, but first he must retrieve it from its hiding spot. Willow was heartbroken when Logan just upped and left without a word why, he just ghosted her and despite her anger with him she has mixed feelings about seeing him again, though she was not exactly thrilled how and where he showed up again, knowing he was not expecting to see her again. But she gets her two cents in and grills him, he is not forthcoming at first but when he learns that he may have placed her in danger again, he sticks close to her. There are more things going on and it is possible that Clive is not the only threat to Willow and Logan. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, mystery, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and a great second chance romance. Also loved when Kit was called and jumped in to help. S.M West, thank you for another exciting story and wild ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, C.J. Bloom and Connor Crais are the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. They have a complete understanding of the characters they are portraying, give each a voice that fits the character’s persona to a tee, sounding believable and just as I pictured the characters to sound. I love how they take each role and make it their own, C.J. Bloom plays Willow’s role with perfection, strong & confident, Connor Crais does the same for Logan, lets you see both sides of him, his strength and his conflict. Both were great performing the roles of the secondary characters too. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the characters’ emotions and projected them into their performance and had you feeling every single one. These mega talented voice artists are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another amazing listen.
