3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing November 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this series but found this installment to be incredibly annoying. Why was Mason not telling anyone about what Lily said? It wasn't even about him or Hailey. After all the secrets that almost destroyed Hunter and Kenzie, why would he do that? The "secret" Mason was hiding was stupid. It happened years ago and didn't involve him. Why wouldn't he share that with Hailey? And there is nothing I hate more than a character who won't talk to the person who they're angry at and thus assumes the worst of everything. Why would he risk losing the love of his life over something like this??? And WHY would Hailey believe ANYTHING Lily or Brittany said?? I know she had a crappy childhood and was a little insecure, but after all the years she and Mason were friends and what they shared, I find it incredibly hard to believe she would so quickly not believe him and think the worst. And then it takes Mason MONTHS to discuss it with Cooper, who it was about to begin with????? And then in a blink of an eye, all is forgiven??? I call bull. Sorry but that's how I feel, which makes me sad because I really liked the first 2 books. The only thing that salvaged this book for me was the sections I got to read about Hunter and Kenzie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my goodness.... Megan Smith has done it again!!! December 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hard to Love You is the third book in the Love Series and is Hailey and Mason's love story. I loved, loved, loved this book. It is probably my favorite one of the series... so far!

Hailey has loved Mason since she was a small girl and Mason has loved Hailey for just as long. They have one of those hot/cold romances but their love runs deep. Mason loves his family and will do whatever it takes to keep them happy and safe, even if it tears his world apart. After being caught in a compromising position he has to choose between his family and his happiness. I think one of my favorite parts of this book was the flashbacks. These allowed the reader to see deeper into their relationship and see what they were thinking and feeling during different times.

Like I said, I really loved this book and didn't want it to end. Now I am anxiously awaiting Cooper and Jaylinn's story!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Hard to Love at all November 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Hard to Love you is the third book in the Love series by Megan Smith and I was so happy that I was asked to read and review this book. The first two books in the series were amazing; Megan left us with a cliffhanger in the first book that made me want to hang myself. I feel it is important that you read the first two books of the series before starting Hard to Love You.

I had no idea there was so much more to Hailey and Mason’s story. I knew they got together from the other books. I loved how the author gave us flashbacks about how the two have been entwined throughout their lives and how you know that they have always loved one another. Timing really is everything and timing was not good to them. It is not a spoiler to say that they are in love, but as in the nature of some of our favorite books something wicked (Lily) has to throw in a twist. Trusts are broken and many misunderstandings.

Hailey is a force to be reckoned with. I love how she just loses control and begins to build herself up again. Mason, oh my god did he make me mad on many occasions, but my heart broke for him when he loses Hailey.

What I loved about this book is that the author incorporated the wedding of Mackenzie and Hunter; I was so excited and I cried like a baby. The chemistry of the characters is awesome. The author really made you feel their happiness and their anguish. One of my favorite things about this book is that the story takes place very close to where I live and I was able to actually visualize the places the author wrote about. The end of the book left me with a huge smile. It will also give the lead in to the next story of Mason’s sexy twin brother Cooper and Hunter’s sister Jaylinn’s story. I have lot of questions going on in my head with those two.

*****5 EASY to love stars.*****
You know those characters that make you so mad that you want to throat punch them, knee them in the balls, and then kick them while they are rolling around on the ground in pain?
Yeah- that's how I feel about Mason Cahill.

You know those characters that you realize that maybe you were actually wrong about?
The one who you realize under all the nonsense and misunderstandings is someone you actually care about?
The one who not only loves but loves harder than all the others?
Yeah- you know what? That's Mason Cahill too.

And this is my dilemma.
The one I constantly go back and forth about.
Hate him, love him, loathe him, adore him.

Him. Him. Him.
Mason Cahill.
He makes me want to scream at him and then kiss him afterwards.
Hailey- I understand girl- I GET IT!!!
"If you love something, set it free. If it comes back it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was." ~Richard Bach

Hard To Love You picks right up where Easy To Love You left off.
Mason, Hailey, and family are celebrating Hunter and Mackenzie's engagement at a local bar and when Hailey walks out of the bathroom her world is shattered when she sees Mason in a corner making out with hoe bag Lily.
Ugh that damn Lily- that is one character that needs to be driven off a cliff to her death.
Mackenzie takes care of the smug look that slut face is sporting with a badass punch to her nasty mouth.

Hailey is so upset that she won't give Mason the chance to explain at first and she runs off instead of dealing with the situation.
When Mason finally talks to Hailey he is very vague with her.
