Noah Winston’s life was perfect. He had it all: striking looks, more money than he could ever spend, good friends, and any woman he wanted.
Margo Perry’s life wasn’t perfect, but it was her own. She didn’t need a man to make her happy or feel better about herself.
Then he saw her – a gorgeous, rain-soaked stranger – but she wasn’t a stranger at all. They’d known each other a lifetime ago, when she was just a girl. Now, she was all woman.
Then it happened. The man she had spent her teenage years lusting over rescued her on a bleak yet fateful day. There he was, straight out of her dreams, looking better now than he had years ago.
The more time he spent with her, the more he questioned everything he knew.
The more time she spent with him, the more those old feelings resurfaced and grew stronger.
Too bad it only took one night, a few words, and a terrible decision, to ruin it all.
Too bad it was too good to be true.
I love when a book title fits the book perfectly and Hard Love is just that. If anyone ever tells you love is easy, it’s not. You have ups and downs, it takes work and sometimes you have to fight to keep it strong. Make sure you have nothing else planned when you start reading Hard Love because you will NOT want to stop once you start reading it, trust me on this. I have only read a couple of books by the author and I must say each times she has really been able to captivate me very quickly.
I love it when there is a fall for your brother/sisters’ best friend romance. There is just something about finally seeing what was in front of you all along that I can’t help but love. Noah and Margo are characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. I loved the banter, the discovery and the development of their relationship progress.
Hard Love is a book that is easy to love and one I easily say needs to be on your TBR lists for sure!
