A good girl.
A bad boy.
One sweet little girl he’s just been given custody of.
What could go wrong?
Cocky. Jaw-droppingly sexy. A patient in my emergency room.
As an ER nurse, I’ve seen a lot of things, but this might take the cake.
Because the charming hottie packing a whole lotta somethin’ somethin’ beneath his hospital gown?  He’s all kinds of naughty trouble. And I have time for exactly none of it.
I didn’t expect to see Cade again—never expected the guy I treated for a monster erection in my ER would turn out to be the sweet, single dad I’m now secretly lusting over.
Complicated doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Note: This book was previously published with the title Hard to Love. It has been edited and modified from its original version.


  • This. Book. Was. A. Drag!!!

    Kind of boring not gonna lie. It was interesting at the very beginning but after that it felt very anticlimactic. Not to mention the protagonist is something else. She’s the kind of girl that would in real life frustrate a lot of guys. Lol. She practically begs the porn star to take her virginity claiming that she’s tired of being a “good girl” and literally the next day she gets mad at him for going to work (filming a porno) and tells him that sex meant something to her. Like GIRL if loosing your virginity meant so much to you, you should’ve done what he told you to do and waited for the right guy!!!! HE TOLD YOU HE WASNT THE RIGHT GUY

    Not very realistic.
  • Unconventional

    By Doingthisforcoinsssssdzzzzz
    Alexa is a nursing student working in an ER, and Cade is the gorgeous hunk who comes in with a “big problem”. This is one of the most unconventional meet cutes ever.
  • Bad editor

    This book was good but there were so many typos, added words, missed words. That I couldn’t just read the book and get into it.
  • No way

    The story line was good but Cade got off way too easy with Lex after what he did ... hate when the writer makes the leading lady a pushover for love .. I mean I get it being in love and all that but come on .. pushing ones face in the mud and the other person gets away with it is just annoying and a bit boring ... "if it was the other way around I wouldn't be ok with it" ... that's it?!? That's all he has to say about it and Lex takes him back? Blah ... some books are just a hit and miss with this writer ... come on readers do more reviews to give other readers a chance to save their money!
  • Ehhh...

    It was an okay read. Nothing special about it. It's an okay book if you're bored and are looking for something to do, but it isn't something I would re-read. The author had such a creative concept. I felt like they could've done something much better and it was really a let down. The characters were kind of boring at times. I feel like if you're only going to have a few characters I would hope for them to be memorable or interesting but not one of these characters were that (except for maybe Cade's little sister. If even). I found Alexa to be even annoying at times *spoiler alert* especially with her dramatic little faint at the coffee shop. This book just really didn't do it for me.
  • Was this written by a 22 year old?

    By Merrie29
    Story wrapped up way too quickly. No way a country club girl gets together with a guy like Cade and the fact that he did porn movies doesn't get out. Reads like it was written by a character the same age as the female lead, with an immature view of the world. I should have known with the premise but it was free so I gave it a try.
  • Good read

    Quick read, likable characters.
  • Loved it SO MUCH !!!!

    By Romancejunkie
    This is a must read. I was glued to this story from the first couple of pages pretty quickly. The writing, the story line, the characters, all of it was ridiculously addictive. I couldn't put it down. And I can't wait to read Ian and Mackenzie's story. I'm downloading it now. If I could of gave it more stars I would of. I've read several of her stories and I've gotta say, she is my new favorite written. She never has let me down and I always want more from her.
