Review

“There are two smells in the world I love more than any others: a woman right before sex and this warehouse right before a fight. They’re different, of course…but both are thrilling and unpredictable and make me want to explode”  ~Ryder

  When you read the title “Hard. A sexy bastard novel”, at once you acknowledge what kind of story you are going to start reading. And what is that? Oh, come on! If anything “Hard” goes to having control, “sexy” to hot as hell type of male and “bastard”, well that goes to the type of men who always made women drop in hands and knees for them. Go figure us!!!

The story begins with an acknowlenge of a dept and an invation within a house. Who is behide of these? Ryder, who is a businessman and all he wants is to keep his reputation on line. So when someone tries to cheat him and then steel his money, he does what ever it’s necessary to clean the shit and continue with his life. That was the reason he broke into this house that day. Sounds little a mafia guy, right? Well, he could be one but he isn’t. He owns few club’s in town plus he rans an illegal fighting circuit and betting ring into a warehouse, but all these don’t make him a mafia guy and to tell you a secret, he works on a legal way in every one of his business. However, he is rough, he is hard, he likes to be in control and he’s a totally womanizer. Need more? How about tall, muscular, broad-shouldered, hard biceps, washboard abs and eyes in the color of sapphire? Now I fix you?

Well, I do and so does Cassie, who was just arrived and was sleeping in this house, oblivious about the dept her brother left on Ryder, trying to get herself free from the personal nightmare she was living. Their encounter that day was intimidating but she didn’t bat a lash. She stayed strong and smart talker in front of Ryder’s, who was the invasive after all, and when she found out who Ryder was and what her brother Jamie did, she took the situation on her hands. She found her old best friend Savannah, who worked in a law firm and tried to learn about Ryder’s life. Not hard to find out who Ryder is when he is famous in the town! Without much to lost, Cassie tried to ask him to erase her brother’s dept but Ryder was uncompromising on that but when she learn that he needed a bookkepper for his club, she took the opportunity and told him that she can help him on that for free, until the dept been paid. Not bad…for both of them!

The story’s getting hotter after they agreed to work together, at the same place, in the same room. Although, there was a spark, more like a flame I suppose, between them, they keep it neutural. Not for long tho! An awkward first moment for both of them, but after that, steamy, sensual, primal feelings are out in the serface and hot moments took their place in the story. True feelings are birth but some secrets made to keep and the good things turned to be horror.

For the last two years, Cassie was living in England a life in hell, been terrorized and beaten by her husband. Returning back to US, she thought she was leaving all these behide her. But what would happen if her terror follows her there?

Eve Jagger, has written a very good story, with smart conversations, great plot and deep meaning. Although, I like to read books with sexy men and hot scenes, I much more like to read them when they have daily human concerns inside. Domestic Violence and bullying are things no human being has to live in their lives and Eve tried and succeeded to relate a story like this. The story is a stand alone and the next one, talks about the second Sexy Bastard of the gang and, although, I haven’t read it yet, I totally recoment it to read it too. Both of them.

I’m honored to received an ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.

Synopsis

(adapted from Goodreads)

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.
