Review: Hard

Hard (Sexy Bastard #1)
by Eve Jagger

Strong. Arrogant. Hard.
Ryder Cole is the King of Atlanta’s nightlife — and the one man who can erase my past.

I’m running from secrets that could destroy me and there’s no room in my life for someone like him: too damn cocky, and sexy as hell. I should keep my distance, but smart goes out the window the minute he looks my way. And when he puts his hands on me … A girl could forget her own name.

But what happens when the past catches up with me, and all the things I’m hiding from tear our lives apart again? I can’t keep running forever, and Ryder always wins.

He's not the kind of guy to let me go gently, Ryder will give it to me Hard.

TeriLyn's thoughts: **Hard generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.**

Eve Jagger wrote an enthralling debut story. Her writing flowed easily telling us the stories in the 1st person POV's of the hero and heroine, Ryder and Cassie.

Ryder Cole, ex-fighter, current businessman of legitimate ventures and one illegitimate venture knocked the wind out of me. He's a simple man, scorned by his past but not enough that he doesn't open himself up to possibility. He's honest, hot, and a damn good dirty talker. His alpha charm melted me. His need for Cassie was hot and vulnerable hitting all the right notes in my hero book.

Cassie McEntire returns home running from a life in England. She returns to chaos thanks to her brother. I loved Cassie's attitude. I loved how she was never scared of Ryder even when she should have been and I loved her loyalty to her family and new friends. There were times I felt Cassie could have been more. I thought Ryder out shined her in this book because of the choices she made. I wanted to her be as forward as she lead me to believe.

These two meet in a stressful situation yet sparks immediately flew. I felt their connection and enjoyed reading the sass they threw each others way. The sex scenes were HOT. Scorching hot. The plot thickens the further we get into it and there was a twist I didn't see coming that was great.

I felt the conflict and ending were a bit rushed. I was getting close to the end of the book and the conflict was still happening then the ending came abruptly. However, I was interested throughout the story which read really fast as I read in one sitting. I adored Ryder's friends and look forward to reading their stories and catching back up with these two. If the next books heroes are anywhere near as hot and dirty as Ryder, this series will definitely become a favorite.
