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…

The Review: A good girl, bad boy porn star with some steamy passion? Wow! This was right up my street!

Hard to Love is a story that I believe is done very tastefully. I have to admit I was worried to start with because Cade, the main character is a porn star. I didn't know how much detail the author was going to take the story, but she does it so well. What I liked was that Cade never intended to be a porn star and at the start of the book and we see him go on his first shoot - which is more than uncomfortable for him. It's only when he takes a drug that will help him perform better start the problems. The side effects of the drug lasts longer than it's supposed to, leading Cade to seek medical advice at the hospital. It's there he meets Alexa - a nursing student who he can't deny his attraction to. 

Alexa is used to dealing with weird situations every day while working the midnight shift at the hospital. But when Cade walks in it's something she's never seen before. It's only when she bumps into him in a night club a few days later that she realises she wants something a little bit more from Cade - she wants him to become the first man she ever sleeps with.....but can she really go through with it?

At 184 pages long - accordingly to my kindle, Hard to Love is a pretty quick read. It's actually one of the things that made me enjoy this story so much because it was so fast paced and not once did it drag out. Kendall Ryan gave you all the information you needed, no matter how long the story was and I appalled her for not trying to make it longer because it honestly didn't need it.  What I really enjoyable about this story was Kendall's ability to drag me in from the very first pages. Her writing is fresh and captivating and there's just so many swoon worthy quotes, oh and the sex, wow. Seriously hot!

Cade easily was my favourite character. I felt I connected with him more than I did Alexa. Sometimes I felt Alexa's reactions didn't seem very realistic to the situations she was in but, still I believe she was a perfect fit for Cade. Both from different lifestyles but somehow they still tried to make things work between them. But back to Cade, I felt he was more real because he would do anything for his little sister and well, featuring in adult films - no matter how much he hates it, just proves he would do anything.

All in all, Hard to Love is a story that will capture your heart and leave you turning the pages until the very last page.

Thank you AToMR Tours for giving me the opportunity to review this book.

defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
