Cade’s always taken risks…
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…
Cade is only 22 years old, but has experienced things no one should have to experience. Between his crappy parents giving him up, and his grandparents death, he is extremely independent. He doesn't do relationships, but he will do anything he has to do to support his 5 year old sister, Lily, who he has sole custody of, including staring in a porno movie.
Cade meets nurse student, Alexa one night at the ER. The two of them are as different as night and day. Cade is the bad boy with a hard past, and Alexa is the good girl from a rich family. But the two of them share a sizzling connection that I just could not get enough of!
I think my favorite part of this book was the relationship between Cade and Lily. I loved the way he was protective and loving of his sister. I also loved Alexa and Lily together. Lily needed that mother figure and it was sweet how much Alexa cared for Lily.
Hard to Love is not to be missed! It was told in duel POV, which I'm always a fan of. The character development was beautifully done. I would have liked more knowledge of Cade's background, but other then that, I was very happy with it. Get yourself a copy today!!
