Hard to Love
Cade’s always taken risks…

Cade takes cares of his sick younger sister by doing what he does best--cage fighting and fu--er, starring in adult movies, his newest harebrained moneymaking scheme designed to pay for his sister’s growing medical bills. But when his latest gig finds him admitted to the ER sporting an erection from hell, thanks to the little pill given to him by the director, he can’t get the pretty little nurse who treated him out of his head, even though he knows she’s so far out of his league it should be illegal.

Alexa’s always played it safe…

Tired of being pigeonholed as the sweet, innocent one, hardworking nursing student Alexa has been looking for ways to break out of her Goody Two-shoes image. When her friend suggests the outlandish idea of losing her virginity to the sexy and sure-to-be-skilled porn star, Alexa is mortified. But then when Cade refuses her proposition, she finds herself pissed off and embarrassed.  When she tracks him down to give him a piece of her mind, she isn’t prepared for what she finds. Watching him care for his little sister tugs at her heart, and suddenly it’s no longer just about losing her virginity, but about helping Cade. Because Lord help her, she might actually be falling for a porn star…Goodreads



This was a wam bam thank you ma’am kind of book. The reason I say that is.. it was short, fast, and oh so good! But it was also heartwarming, sexy, and fun!

Cade is 22 years old and is the sole guardian of his 5 year old sister (Lily) that has been diagnosed with a crippling disease. He has grown up in a hard life which has made him fiercely determine and extremely independent. But one wonderful thing that has come from his situation (taking care of his sickly sister) is that he has not lost his ability to love and show compassion.
Alexa is a ER nurse who comes from a very wealthy family. Although she knows her family (mostly her mother) has expectations for her to marry into an equally wealthy family she is determine to be independent and do something she loves. The one thing that they all don’t expect is for her to fall for the bad boy porn star who ends up in the emergency room in which she is working.
These two are a very unlikely couple but can’t seem to fight the strong attractions between themselves. After a happen chance meeting at a club (after their initial ER meeting) they can’t seem to get enough of each other. Once Alexa meets Lily she sees a side of Cade’s life that not everyone sees, one full of love compassion and tenderness. She under stands how hard his situation is with Lily’s medical bills piling up with no other family to help out but she doesn’t like the line of work he has chosen to help out financially. These two have a lot to work through to have a happy relationship.
Cade and Alexa have great chemistry from beginning to end. The way they both take care of Lily is more than admirable and speaks volumes for there character. The ending was perfect but I wanted to see much more of this story since I loved it so much. I look forward to reading more of Kendall’s books! 

"I would never be good enough for her. She would never be able to comprehend that sometimes there were things in life that you didn't want to do, but had to do to take care of your family. And Lily was my fmaily. I'd do anything for her. Life wasn't all fucking sunshine rainbows. Real life was hard. I was doing what needed to be done. Period."
