Saints Like Him by Aimee Nicole Walker Blog Tour

Blog Tour. Aimee Nicole Walker’s Saints Like Him.

From ex-con to self-made millionaire, there’s no challenge too tough for Cash Sweeney to conquer. So why has he spent twelve years pining for his best friend instead of doing something about it? Because losing Nick would be like existing with half of his heart. Is it better to settle for what he can have or battle for what he wants?

Banged up and burned out, FBI Agent Nick Scott arrives at Redemption Ridge with a trunkful of luggage and a yearning heart. Cash is easy to love but hard to read, and Nick fears his epiphany has come too late. Does he tuck his tail and run or fight for the man who’s become his home?

Tender gestures and heartfelt conversations lead to thrilling revelations neither man can ignore. No more what-ifs or maybes. Cash and Nick are all in. And they’ll need each other more than ever when a devious enemy emerges from the shadows to put their promising future at risk. With the stakes so high, will the guys double down or fold to pressure?

Saints Like Him is book three in the Redemption Ridge series. Though each story features a different couple, reading the series in order is essential. Saints Like Him contains mature themes and is intended for adults.

Content Warning: Homophobia, abuse, and conversion therapy are briefly discussed in this book, though no graphic descriptions are used.

Cash pursed his lips while studying the chip selection at the grocery store in Last Chance Creek. What snack was most suitable for a forty-nine-year-old man while bingeing the newest season of Heartstopper? Cash wasn’t one to use his age as a reason to avoid many things, but he wasn’t proud of his obsession with the series about queer teenagers and their first loves. Their vitality and innocence sometimes made him feel older than dirt, but mostly it made him grateful that a new generation could see themselves in the characters.

It was unlikely Cash’s life would’ve turned out differently if he’d had positive representation as a teen. He’d lost his mom to poverty and drugs and had gone to live with strangers at a time when he was figuring things out about himself. Cash hadn’t felt comfortable coming out, or letting others in, until he was thirty. He’d rebuilt his life from the ashes of his past and had been tired of living a lie. The penniless dirt track racer had to pretend, but the successful technology inventor did not. Cash had thought his newly gained wealth would insulate him from scrutiny and scorn, but it only perpetuated the narrative that he was an outsider who didn’t belong. But those closed doors and snubs didn’t deter him; they fueled the perpetual fire in his soul and made him richer.

He couldn’t think of a single hard knock he’d change because they’d all led him to this point. Well, maybe not to standing in a grocery store staring at the same bag of Fritos for a solid ten minutes. He meant his ranch, his people, and the journey he’d taken to have them in his life. Contentment didn’t negate his few regrets or warm his bed, but the one man who could fix both problems was across the country. Who the hell was he kidding? It wouldn’t have mattered if Nick was at Quantico, on Mars, or standing beside Cash. He was off-limits. Cash just needed to convince his foolish heart of that fact—a feat he hadn’t accomplished in twelve years. But had he really tried that hard?

A warm, masculine chuckle invaded his thoughts, and Cash jerked his head to find Seth Burke approaching him. He bit back a snort. Burke didn’t approach; he swaggered with big dick energy. The sheriff was a good five inches taller, a few years younger, and had the persistence of a bloodhound when it came to Cash. Burke’s uniform consisted of a pressed khaki shirt, dark denim jeans, boots, and a white Stetson hat. Cash wasn’t sure what shone brighter in the store’s overhead lights—the shiny sheriff star pinned to Burke’s shirt or his white, toothy grin. Damn, but the man was fine as hell with jet-black hair, gray eyes, and sun-kissed skin. No matter the time of day, that superhero square jaw was clean-shaven to show off his magnificent bone structure. Why the hell couldn’t Cash return the man’s interest? He could trade heartache for the kind of twinges and stings that left a man smiling instead of moping.

“What’d that bag of chips do to you?” Burke asked when he reached Cash. His voice was jovial, pure good ole boy, but the tension around Burke’s mouth betrayed him.

Cash snorted and faced his friend. “I was just lost in thought.” He glanced down and saw Burke had already placed several items in his basket. “I didn’t see your truck in the parking lot.”

A dark brow arched. “Or you would’ve kept driving?”

Cash sighed. “Of course not. I was just making conversation.”

“The inane kind you make when you’ve been avoiding your friend?” Burke pressed.

Were they friends? They met for lunch regularly at the diner and texted often, so definitely more friendly than acquaintances.



Wasn’t that the mark of a truly skilled lover? You could still feel them inside you even when you were apart like they’d branded you during lovemaking.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Saints Like Him is the third book in the Redemption Ridge series. I don't suggest reading it as a standalone because you will miss so much information from the other books that make this one so worth it. It should be read in the order the author intended.

Cash and Nick had one weekend to fuel the flame of their desires. One weekend twelve years ago that changed both their lives. They weren't in the same places in their lives that they are today. They put each other in the friendzone but remained the best of friends through the years. Cash has always been Nick's safe place when his job as an FBI agent became too much. And coming to Redemption Ridge when his life is in complete turmoil is the only thing he can do. The life Nick has built for himself has always felt like it's missing something... that something is Cash.

Cash has built and run Redemption Ridge for former inmates to go when they wanted to make something of their lives after prison. The people around him have become family and as happy as it makes him to have these people in his life, he still feels alone. He's been in love with his best friend for twelve years. They were both not ready to be in a relationship, but now Cash is terrified to move Nick from that friendzone because he's so afraid of losing him.

I am so invested in this series. I love everything about these characters and finally seeing Cash get his happily ever after, after so long, is so heartwarming. Nick and Cash had so much chemistry and love between them. Cash was so patient with Nick while he worked through his issues and Nick's way to reassure Cash every time his thoughts would get away from him was so sweet.

I can't wait to get Rueben and Seth and Tyler and Owen. I am honestly just so excited there is more to come from this world!!!

This is the third book in the series. You might be able to read it as a standalone, but the previous books are so good it enriches this book. I've wanted Cash's story from the get-go. Who is this guy who runs this ranch and is so good to his employees? We met Nick briefly in a previous book and we could tell Cash felt something. This book, we get it all. All the heartache, all the BS they each went through, and finally, all the love. These two are perfect for each other. I loved watching their story unfold. I love the guys on this ranch, they are all like family and everyone has each other’s back. I adore this series and I can't wait for the next book.

4.5 stars of goodness

This is the third book in the series and I have been waiting for Cash to get his happily ever after... and it really had to be with Nick! I would recommend that you read the earlier books first, as the underlying story is ongoing and would add to the richness of the story in this installment.

Cash and Nick are the very closest of friends, but never cross the line because Nick's career in the FBI doesn't fit with Cash's ranch life. Sure, Cash could be anywhere with the money he has, but he believes in Redemption Ridge, and Nick knows it and would never expect Cash to compromise. But Nick is finally at a point where he really can't continue in his role anymore, so perhaps it is time to see whether all that chemistry they suppress is, in fact, still there.

Cash cannot believe how wounded Nick's soul and body are, and will do anything to make his recovery smooth – but he is very surprised that Nick seems to be flirting with him, and is uncertain as to how to deal with his feelings. He knows what he wants but is it real?

I loved these two men finding each other again, and being so perfect together. Before they can really settle down though, they have to eliminate the threat of the sect which is persecuting the men on the ranch and the local town. Little did any of us expect the reason behind their vendetta – it is a clever twist.

Delicious from beginning to end with lots of time to catch up on previous romances and to predict who is going to be the next subject of a bet! Thank you, Aimee Nicole Walker.



Cash placed a hand over his heart and removed the veil he kept over his expressions. “You’re my heart, Nicky. I can’t lose you.”
