Hard by Cheryl McIntyre

Hard by Cheryl McIntyre

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Writing: ★★★★★
Story: ★★★
Characters: ★★★★

Overall rating: 4.0

This book was surprising, I was settling in for what I thought was a pretty dark read, after reading they synopsis... but what I got wasn't really all that dark, but it was really good.

Holland is running from her past and herself and she's doing it alone. She's alone and lost in this world after losing everything she loved.

To me, as emotional as this book was, I really admired Holland's strength. To quit her job, get in her car and just head towards a new life... and not really knowing *what* that life will hold, she just knows that it's got to be better than what she's leaving behind.

Holland gets a job waitressing in a small town, and Jensen, a 30-year-old scopophiliac, (yeah, I had to look that one up! Definition: deriving pleasure from looking. As an expression of sexuality, it refers to sexual pleasure derived from looking at erotic objects: erotic photographs, pornography, naked bodies, etc.), who has been coming in everyday for a few months, ordering the same thing and doing what he does best.. he looks. Unfortunately, Holland doesn't notice it, or him.

I really liked Jensen the moment he came into view on my Kindle. Strong, mysterious, and Dominant!

I loved how Ms. McIntyre wrote the sex *into* the story, not that the story was built *into* the sex. And the scenes were tasteful and erotic, which complimented this particular book quite well.

Very enjoyable read!
