Review: Hard to Love by Kendall Ryan

Posted on 10 January, 2013 by in Kendall Ryan / 0 comments














4.5 STARS!!!


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…


Denise’s Review

HARD TO LOVE is my favorite Kendall Ryan book to date.  This was a wonderful story of love and devotion.

Cade takes care of his sick younger sister, Lily. The reader quickly learns that it is the love for his sister that drives many of his actions.  His love for her is unconditional and pure so it absolutely heart melting to read.  In an attempt to make money for her medical bills, Cade’s decision to star in an adult film lands him in the ER and face to face with Alexa, a somewhat sheltered nursing student.

Alexa’s friends suggest she lose her virginity to Cade and when Cade refuses that story gets very interesting. 

Alexa uncovered Cade’s sister and his heart of gold.   Watching these two develop a relationship was wonderful.  The use of Lily as a catalyst and something to bond over was really well done.

Ms. Ryan did not make Cade’s problem disappear just because these two discover how they feel for each other.  I liked that aspect.  Will these two decide that their love for each other is stronger than some of the decisions made to survive?

Well, you will have to read the book to find that out.

The end of this book for me was really well done; again the use of Lily was wonderful.  

I am looking forward to more wonderful things from Ms. Ryan.
