Publisher's Summary

Cade has always taken risks....

Cade takes cares of his sick younger sister by doing what he does best - cage fighting and 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 has 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 just be falling for a porn star....

Two Words: Porn Star

A good quick read. Caden is not your typical guy you want to fall in love with, Alexa knows this but still she can't stop being attracted to this guy when she first saw him in the ER while working the night shift. Caden is a newly hot porn star, construction worker, MMF fighter, a guy who also has the responsibility of take care of a sister who has Spina Bifida. A huge responsibility that Caden needs fast money, and being a porn star is better than fighting people to have money. On the other hand, Alexa is a hardworking student nurse, born in a wealthy family, and most of all a virgin. These two know they should not get involved with each other but they can't just ignore the attraction.Once Alexa saw Caden's sister Lily, she can't stop loving the girl, at the same time falling in love with Caden. Never judge a book by its cover! Alexa can't ignore that she wants Caden and even ignores the whole porn star thing. One thing led to another, Alexa spent so much time with Lily & Caden that they were used to seeing her all the time. But then Caden felt that it's not right for Alexa to be with them when it's entirely obvious she do not belong in their world and deserves to be with someone rich and someone made for her. But after Alexa experienced her first time, knowing Caden will have to film and be with other girl, was too much for Alexa to handle and that messed up things between them. These two have a lot to work through in order to have a happy relationship. Cade and Alexa have great chemistry from beginning to end. The sex scenes were yummy!!! The ending was good but I wanted to see a bit more of what the future holds. I look forward to reading more of Kendall’s books!

Did not like narrators - either of them

I liked the story well enough but the performance was not at all captivating. Loved the length of the story but that said it should have a commensurate price.

Enjoyed the story

I adore Kendall Ryan’s stories, but the narrators on this book fell flat for me.

I loved the story...

But IMO, the voice actors didn't fit the characters. They were supposed to be young adults but they sounded too prim and proper. I'm all for enunciation but in this case it took away from the story experience. I ended up reading the kindle ebook version instead.

Just okay. Didn't like either narrator.

This is a cute story, but more sweet than hot and steamy, as the genre implies. And don't like either of the narrators' voices. Can't decide which is worse.

Swoon!

Can Cade and Alexa be any cuter? I loved this couple! Kendall Ryan did not disappoint in this one! Worth the listen for sure! Loved the narration as well.

It's okay

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This was just an okay book for me in all aspects. The narrating was okay but nothing special, the story was okay but nothing special. The book itself was just okay.

Loved Hard to Love

Loved the book and audio. The story was great and so heart warming

The dual narration is always my favorite and the narrators in this production nailed it.

Won't mind hearing it again or purchasing another book with the author and or the narrators

LOVED, HARD TO LOVE!

So here is the thing. I read this book because even though book two is a standalone I hate skipping books. Now let me say, from the very beginning you will laugh your bum off. cough cough 4 hour erection.. cough... So to say this book kept me engaged is an understatement.

The characters are really good. Only once did I not like the characters or the way the storyline went and it was towards the end. I just feel some things were let go of too easily and the whole scene felt like it switched gears too submisably. Unfortunately that same thing carried over into the narrators voices. it seemed around this same time the voices didn't match up with the flow or emotion of the scene. It made it seem like they were confused. Now don't make this a deal breaker because if you do, you will surely miss out. This book is totally a book that I fell in love with and would love to hear over and over.
