Hard is a fantastic debut novel by Eve Jagger!

Sexy Bastard…yep, that 100% describes Ryder Cole! He’s a businessman of legitimate and illegitimate businesses, is an ex-fighter and comes with a dirty mouth.

His illegitimate business consists of running an underground fighting ring and when Jamie, one of his patrons, racks up a large debt, he sends his thugs to track him down. When they break into Jamie’s apartment, they don’t find him but rather his older sister, Cassie who is livid at what her brother has done. Thinking she can settle the issue down, she goes to a club owned by Ryder to talk to him and overhears that he has a position he needs filled. Cassie offers her services in payment of her brother’s debt and Ryder, who is insanely attracted to her, hires her.

This is what starts an explosive build-up of sizzling and burning chemistry between the two. You can feel the tension crackling between them and it’s oh so hot!

Hard brings you a storyline and writing that keeps you hooked and a blend of wonderfully developed characters.

I’m looking forward to more in this Series.

I often wonder why women are so attracted to alpha male characters in books? Is it the fact that as mentioned in Sex and the City, we all want to be saved? Is it possibly the reason why we are so drawn to stories of strong sexy unattainable bad boys who would do anything for their woman, even though she can hold her own? Or could it be that it is in fact the other way around and we want to be the ones saving them? Either way, in this brilliant debut novel by Eve Jagger, we not only get plenty of that sexy alpha-ness (yes, I created my own word!) we crave, but we also get an equally amazing female lead.

Quote: Cash laughs. “No need to play coy with me, Ryde. You were practically going down on Cassie with your eyeballs a second ago, and I want you to know, I’m in full support, dude. She’s hot. And smart. Maybe too smart for you.”

Ryder Cole is delicious. If I could find this man, I’d chain him to the bed posts and lick ice cream off his abs all day.. OK, maybe not *just* his abs. One thing that really drew me to this character, aside from his perfectly written sexiness, was Ryder’s instant attraction to a strong female character. It’s no secret that many female leads are written quite weak, but Cassie, she is simply kick arse. He possesses all the great qualities in male leads we have come to love, he’s sexy, he’s super smart and rich, he’s tattooed (side note: God, I love a tattooed male!!!) but what makes Ryder different, is his ability to suck you in from the start with his hidden vulnerability and the connection he had with Cassie as a result. We feel a connection with his hurt over a past relationship and his hesitation of being with Cassie and allowing himself to fall in love again.

Ryder Cole is one swoon-worthy Sexy Bastard! I really need someone to erase this book from my memory so I can have the pleasure of experiencing it for the first time again! I absolutely loved this book and am already itching for a re-read.

The writing style is fantastic! The dialog really pulls you into the book and makes you feel like you are a part of the storyline. Nothing in this book feels forced. The perfect balance of story, plot twists and steam. Everything flows seamlessly and it was torture to have to put the book down, walk away and join reality. The ending is well done; leaving you equally satisfied and wanting more.

I quickly fell in love with these characters! Ryder is a tattooed ex-underground fighter who is more than he appears to be. Cassie is running from something, or better yet someone, all while trying to pick up after a loved one's short comings. The sexual chemistry between these two is nuclear and 100% cold shower inducing.

I CANNOT wait to see what else this new author has in store. With this kind of debut the sky's the limit!

I absolutely loved this book. It was full of witty humor, hot men, suspense, and some seriously steamy sex scenes. The characters were hilarious and a great group of friends that surround Ryder and Cassie.

Ryder and Cassie have a quite unconventional first meeting. He’s a businessman that also runs a underground fight ring. She the sister of the guy who owes Ryder money. Ryder is totally alpha male and a smart businessman. He’s also sexy as hell. Cassie full of witty comebacks that had me cracking up but she’s also smart and very beautiful. Unfortunately, she’s also running from her past so there’s an element of suspense to this story as well. These two click right away, even if they try to act otherwise in the beginning. They also had a great group of friends around them that were funny in their own right.

This story was well laid out and a great read. I devoured it in just a day. The characters were sexy, feisty, and fun. All of the elements came together just the right mix of emotions, humor, and sexiness. I seriously enjoyed reading this book and I can’t wait to read more in the series. I hope that the other books follow other people in the group. 5 out of 5 stars!
