I had high hopes for this book. I read the sample first and liked it but the sample proved not to be enough for me to judge it. When I actually read the book I thought Derrick was hard to like. And Eva made me mad also. He would make demands and she would give in all the time. Whatever he wanted from her he got it. She gave up her job, moved to his city, got a new lifestyle, and all the other changes, but he hardly made any sacrifices. She took up a traditional role as estate manager and got involved in charity (what every rich wife does). It was just so cliche and traditional. And I thought it would be different and more to it, so I was disappointed. If you like different and non traditional then this book is not for you. If you like the typical stubborn male who has to have everything his way, with the girl who always gives in then you will like this book.

A Hard Man to Love is the perfect title for this book. In the beginning Derrick comes across as a callous alpha jerk but as the story unfolds you realize it is a coping mechanism. You know Derrick has a heart since he wants to be there and fully engaged in raising his child. Eva is a good counter-balance to Derrick's bravado. I was instantly drawn to her and wanted to her get her man! I am so pleased she had a backbone and did not allow herself to be a doormat.

As the story develops you warm up to Derrick and understand the walls he puts up. You go on the journey with him as he falls in love and allows himself to be loved not just by Eva but his family as well. I am happy that while he soften toward Eva he was still a man that did not suffer fools.

This is a great story that stayed with me long after I read it. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Ms. Diamond is a talented writer/storyteller, and once again it showed in A Hard Man to Love. I'm a huge fan of stories with real alpha males and Derrick Hoffman didn't disappoint. He started out as hard, callous, and at times downright ruthless, but it was all in the name of love (most times). As a reader, I watched him change as the story progressed and enjoyed every moment of his transformation - from the time he bullied Eva into marrying him, up to the moment he came to her rescue toward the end. I liked him from the beginning ... but I was in love with him by the end.

The story left me wanting more...of Derrick!! Nice job Ms. Diamond. I'm looking forward to reading future stories by you!

Ms. Diamond, you did it again, hit another one right out of the park. This book is awesome, I enjoyed the entire book, I could not put it down. EVA and DERRICK was a perfect match, it just took them some time to realize it. I know that there will be a sequel, brother MATTHEW needs a love connection, does EVA meet her father, CELESTE and ROARKE, please don't leave us hanging, this story is just too good!!!

Derrick Hoffman is not a nice guy. In fact, I'd go so far as to call him a mean son-of-a-bitch. Make that a mean, rich son-of-a-bitch. He has a lot of baggage from growing up and feeling unwanted as a child. This fear of rejection manifests itself in his adult relationships. He's a "No-Strings Attached" kind of guy. But when he meets Ava, he starts to fall for her. Oh, he doesn't show it - because that's the kind of man Derrick is. He can't reveal his true feelings because that would be a sign of weakness. Then, Ava breaks up with him, which of course, crushes his ginormous ego.

The plot thickens when Ava finds out she's preggers. Well, Derrick decides he can't let his child feel emotionally neglected the way he was. So, he strong-arms Eva into marrying him. He tells her that if she refuses, he'll fight her for custody. Eva ain't no punk, but she knows she doesn't stand a chance against his money - especially when she only has a part-time job and no benefits. Plus, deep inside, she still has feelings for Derrick. In the end, she finally capitulates, agreeing to be his wife.

Now, I can't tell you what else happened. If you want to know, you have to read the book for yourself. The author does an excellent job of making me hate Derrick, then making my Texas-sized heart swell with compassion for him. From the first page of the story, I was hooked. I admired how Eva put Derrick through his paces too. The love scenes were steamy, despite the fact that Eva was pregnant. I loved how the author included this in the book. Pregnant women can get their freak on too - how do you think all of you got here?! At any rate, pick up this book. You'll be glad you did.

A part two to the Hawthorne series and awesome. It's all about Derrick who is the polar opposite of his brother Roarke. He's an alpha male rich, handsome, and arrogrant he's very guarded and has this wall up that prevents anyone getting close. Derrick's a product of a biracial affair gone awry his white mother has his rich stepfather adopt him. After being rejected from his natural father Derrick holds the action against the entire family and acter his parents death, inherits his stepfather's riches now spoiled rich boy can have anything and anyone he wants and what he wants is Eva but she being difficult just what a guy like him needs. This a must read I couldn't put my kindle down reading how Eva melt the hard edge Derrick made this better than the first installment.
