This book was hard to put down, kept me wanting to read more.
Kim Sullivan
There was just so much thrown out, I don't think I ever got a real sense of who these characters were and what exactly made them want to be together.
Jessica Sotelo (Angie and Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
As always the story was more than great and I LOVED the characters!

I'm feeling a bit bipolar with this one... it definitely had it's highs and lows. I appreciate the writing, first of all. I never got bored, I never wanted to put the book down, I was definitely entertained. It just sometimes felt like a puzzle with some missing pieces, and some random pieces from another puzzle thrown in the box. There was definitely a lot going on. Caden is a construction worker/porn star/ cage fighter... but not really. I mean he said he was, but I never felt like he was completely immersed in any of those roles. He started out as this guy doing porn to support his little sister, he seemed like he was deep down this sweet guy that hadn't actually done porn yet, didn't want to, really just wanted a normal life. But by the end he was too committed to the job to give it up for Alexa, and suddenly he's this relationship phobe player that needs taming, it was just all a little all over the place for me. And then Alexa is a virgin nurse from a privileged background and they suddenly don't fit together as a couple because she's to high class for him. There was just so much thrown out, I don't think I ever got a real sense of who these characters were and what exactly made them want to be together. The breakups scenes and the sex scenes were extremely thorough.... well thought out and well written. But the makeup scenes were way too rushed. It was way too easy the way they just got past everything and all was then right with the world. There were things left out, like the fact that he had never actually done a porn movie when they first met in the ER. Or the random babysitters that flirted with Caden... it was like they were brought in to make Alexa jealous but they never actually add anything you the story.

This isn't my first Kendall Ryan book and it definitely won't be my last... but it was just ok for me.

When I was looking at the reviews I read a few that were on the low side one was about how they thought it was to much with his jobs but I think maybe that was the point I don't think he knew who he was and how to pay the medical bills and with that stress and his past he felt that he was not good enough for her and with some help he realizes he is and makes the changes to be I hope that more people will put less stock in the reviews and try for yourself that's what I have found thanks for another great read

WOW! Another AMAZIN book from Kendall Ryan! I openly admit she is def one of my favorite authors! As always the story was more than great and I LOVED the characters! I am continuously falling in love with the characters in her book! The writing is funny, sexy, and intertaining to say the least.

I just fell in love with Cade..such a sexy and sweet man! I respected and loved how he would do anything for his little sister, Lil.

This book was well worth the wait from Kendall! I so happy she decided to release it earlier and if you have not read this book yet....

You need to NOW! This book is a MUST read for 2013! =)

This book had a great premiss, so I thought I would really like it, but I am afraid it fell short. I love a "trouble guy in a tough situation" story, so I expected to love Cade. He ended up being just okay for me. he was not developed enough and I felt like I never got a chance to really know him.

Alexa was just terrible, I could not stand her! She was a wimpy little cry baby who could not be bothered to actually talk about anything, she just runs away and cries when ever something goes wrong.

*Spoilers*

There were also a couple parts that I may be being nit picky about, but as someone who has worked with children with special needs and in the medical profession I was really annoyed by a couple things in the book:

First of Alexa and her friends apparently have not heard of HIPAA. She tells her friends all about Cade, what came to the hospital for, and about him being a porn star (Yes, I know most people would tell their coworkers that story) but then the friend sees him in the bar and calls him over to let him know that his nurse told them all about him and his trip to the ER? That is a total violation of privacy, and since they are all nursing students they would all know better.

The other one that bothered me the most was when Alexa showed up uninvited at Cade's house with an exercise ball and started doing stretches and exercises with his sister without his permission of supervision. You don't just "wing it" and do therapy with a child with Spina Bifida. She talks about the new stretches and exercises she showed her. She was in no way qualified to do that and it could potentially be very dangerous and harmful.

*spoilers*

Basically this book is good if you just want a quick steamy read, but I like to have a good story along with my steam and this book did not deliver for me.

All I have to say is that I most definitely want a Cade! Come on who would not want an ex-cage fighter who is also a hot and sweaty construction worker and is porn star! Oh and who is guardian if his 6 year old sister (sigh). I loved the chemistry and the sweetness between Alexia and Care. I would recommend this book to everyone.
