Cade takes cares of his sick younger sister by doing what he does best--cage fighting and starring in adult movies, his newest harebrained moneymaking scheme designed to pay for his sister’s growing medical bills. But when his latest gig finds him admitted to the ER sporting an erection from hell, thanks to the little pill given to him by the director, he can’t get the pretty little nurse who treated him out of his head, even though he knows she’s so far out of his league it should be illegal.
Alexa’s always played it safe…
Tired of being pigeonholed as the sweet, innocent one, hardworking nursing student Alexa has been looking for ways to break out of her Goody Two-shoes image. When her friend suggests the outlandish idea of losing her virginity to the sexy and sure-to-be-skilled porn star, Alexa is mortified. But then when Cade refuses her proposition, she finds herself pissed off and embarrassed. When she tracks him down to give him a piece of her mind, she isn’t prepared for what she finds. Watching him care for his little sister tugs at her heart, and suddenly it’s no longer just about losing her virginity, but about helping Cade. Because Lord help her, she might actually be falling for a porn star…
My Short Review
Simply put Hard to Love was a delightful! It was a short, angsty, and hot! And OH what a way to start a book than in the ER, especially considering the "hard" predicament that landed Cade in there. I was giggling like a school girl, I could only imagine how Alexa felt! I like that Cade is willing to do whatever it takes to take care of his little sister, even at the cost of pain, embarrassment, or love. I love the relationship the Cade, Alexa, and his little sister form!
Cover Love and Writing
I love the cover.. can you say HOT!?! Ryan's writing was great and there is a duel, first person POV! So you get angsty from both sides!
Swoonworthy Points: 8
This book has some pretty fan-yourself-hot scenes! Cade, being the good guy that he is, declines Alexa's proposition to take her virginity. But he can only resist so long. The two eased into the situation, got to know one another, fell in love with each other, worked up to that point.
Overall, I would recommend this book.. especially if you want a short and light angsty read, a HEA, and some smexin.
An awesome short, smexy read!!
