Finlay Thatcher is a lost soul, guilt-ridden after the death of her twin brother. When Alabama’s football coach gives her the opportunity to work for him, she knows it’s her chance to move on, even if it means living her brother’s dream. 

Caden Brooks is Alabama’s star quarterback. He’s got it all. The attention of adoring fans. A girlfriend who’d do anything to hold on to him. And a future in the pros. He’s getting along just fine until Finlay steps into his life, despising him at first sight and pushing his buttons like no other. 

Unfortunately for Finlay, and her attempt to keep Caden at arm’s length, there’s nothing Caden loves more than a challenge. The problem with this challenge is she comes with a secret that has the power to destroy everything.


Words can’t even begin to express how much I absolutely adored this beautifully captivating and perfectly written story! For Finlay happens to be my first experience into J. Nathan’s amazing writing stroll and I can say without hesitation that I certainly wasn’t disappointed for a second! Immediately upon finishing this story I went and one-clicked all of her previous books and I plan on reading them all as soon as possible. I must say that I experienced so many emotions during the few hours it took me to devour this extraordinary story!

Finlay Thatcher’s entire world was drastically turned upside down just a short two years ago when she lost her other half – her twin brother Cole. Ever since losing him, she has struggled with reevaluating her life without him in it. Readers watch as she slowly begins to come out of her shell when she relocates to Alabama to attend the school her brother planned to before his untimely death. There’s just one little problem…or should I say person standing in her way of happiness.

Caden Brooks’ is Alabama’s star quarterback and the one that took over her brother’s place on the football team. After the death of Finlay’s brother, Caden becomes the guy who has it all, from the attention of the fans to a future in the pros, which was Cole’s ultimate goal in life. When Caden meets Finlay there’s an instant attraction between the two of them, but she continues to keep him at arms length because of who he is and the sadness he represents in her life.

For Finlay was a relatively fast paced story that readers will easily find themselves devouring in one sitting. It was nearly impossible for me to put it down because I was captivated by this uniquely beautiful tale. I am looking forward to seeing more of these characters and the secondary characters in the near future!


About J. Nathan

J. Nathan is the author of the new adult novels For Finlay, Before Hadley, Until Alex, and Since Drew. When she’s not writing, she’s a total romance junkie! Add an alpha male who’s unlikable in the beginning…even better. Happy endings are a must. Love triangles and negative people are the bane of her existence. Her family, friends, guys in backwards hats, and watermelon margaritas are the light…
