Cassie is back in Atlanta after living in England for two years. Thinking she has left her troubles behind her, she is immediately caught up in those of her brother who is owing a debt to local nightlife king, Ryder Cole.
Ex-fighter Ryder is not one to cross and owing him any debt is not an option so when Cassie offers him a solution to wipe out her brother’s betting debt, he agrees.
From the start you could feel the chemistry oozing off the kindle between Cassie and Ryder. Both were instantly likeable and the storyline was an instant hit with me. There was no need for any angst drivel as the action was smoking hot and they both gave as good as they got.
Cassie was a strong woman who would not take to idle threats but when you find out her backstory this gave an altogether depth to her character. How could Ryder not be drawn to her, with her striking beauty and her sassy mouth?
Ryder on the other hand was fabulously hot with his washboard abs and his tats, he was off the charts sexy. There was also a hint of danger to him (he runs underground fight nights) that made him all the more alluring and alpha! I couldn’t get enough of him. I loved that he also had a vulnerable side that nobody saw, except Cassie.
There is a curveball thrown in to the plot that gave some super charged drama that added to this superbly written story. It had everything I look for in a hot romance – a sassy heroine, a sexy hothead hero, and a believable plot with a cast of more alpha heroes (can’t wait for their stories to come next in the series) Five sexy bastard stars!
Overall definitely worth a read, and I will certainly be checking out the rest of this series. :-)
Worth a read- I'm probably just reading too much into it!
Fantastic story line, HOT scenes, amazing characters & written spectacularly, not to mention funny! What more could you ask for?
Will definitely be reading more by this author! :) <3
Hard follows the life of Cassie and Ryder. Ryder is an arrogant, bad boy, ex fighter turned club owner who knows what he wants and will stop at nothing to get it. Cassie is the girl that hiding something, running from something but is loyal to a fault.
Ryder and Cassie’s paths cross in a rather comical way and then continue to cross when she steps In to help her brother get out of trouble. Cassie is a good girl, she loves her family and seeing a way to help her brother she takes it. Ryder accepts Cassie’s offer as he wants more out of it, and he plays to win.
When lines start to blur for the duo and what was once innocent isn’t anymore, they both have decisions to make. Do they keep it as it is, or do they break down their walls together? Having been hurt in the past Ryder isn’t looking for serious or committed, he is looking for fun, until Cassie. Cassie is on the run from something, and doesn’t want to let Ryder know about her past.
But when people from the pasts come into the present, lies are told, pain caused and words are said, can Cassie and Ryder work it out? Is it over before it’s even really began?
I really enjoyed this book, this book takes a few twists and turns that keep you on your feet. There was also some rather steamy scenes in this book. Well done Eve Jagger on a fantastic read.
Thirty year old ex-fighter Ryder Cole has earned his place as the king of the underground boxing world and successful, legitimate business man. He’s charismatic and sexy with a powerful aura; a ladies' man who enjoys playing the field. When circumstance presents itself he's also capable of looking after his lady in a beautiful and caring manner creating a charming chemistry between the protagonists.
Cassie, the heroine, finds herself in a situation where she's compelled to work for Ryder and shows that she's more than a match for him in terms of her feisty and confident nature. She's someone who isn't afraid to go after what she wants and someone who'll speak her mind, both great qualities in a heroine. As the story develops the reader learns more and more about the heroine's past, where she’s come from and the experiences she’s very recently faced.
There’s a plethora of additional characters all of whom add a layer of interest and pleasure to the story. I love the easy relationship and the loyalty shown between the men. They give the story an extra layer of warmth and feeling and a taste of the charismatic heroes that may take centre stage in future stories.
I LOVE the premise, how the protagonists meet, the dialogue and wonderful banter between Ryder and Cassie. The prose has a lovely descriptive quality to it and an easy flow which easily entertained me throughout.Read more ›
