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.

Candi's Review

Hard is Eve Jagger’s debut book!! And what a great beginning!! This story is filled with some hot sexy bastards. And a whole lotta holy effen hotness!!

We have Ryder “hell yes I wanna ride that” Cole. Club/bar owner and runs an “illegal” underground fight club. Need I say more.

Then there is Cassie. Who has just ran from England to come back home to Georgia after being gone for 2 years. To only land in the middle of her brother Jaimie’s debts and problems, and one very angry Ryder Cole. She is trying to get her life together. But Cassie also has secrets. Some heartbreaking ones. Many times I wanted to hug and squeeze her. And other times she had me wanting to squeeze and shake her and yell WHAT ARE YOU DOING WOMAN?!?! I guess she had her reasons.

And then there are Ryder’s best friends. Jackson, Cash, and Parker. I really really hope these guys get their own books. This is what I loved about this book. It had great character development among all the supporting characters. Even Cassie’s group of girlfriends. Every single one of them can have their own series of books and I would be happily 1-clicking away. I simply loved this book! The sexy times were SMOKING HOT!! Eve Jagger can write sex!! That’s for damn sure!! I was so worked up so many times and this was before anything actually even happened!!! And then when it did. HOLY HOT! And a particular favorite number of mine type scene….god yes!!! I loved the suspense buildup up too! Had my heart a racing! I can’t wait to see what Eve Jagger does next! I will be impatiently waiting!!
