Hard to Love

Hard to Love - Kendall Ryan This story is hard to love. It tries to turn the porn star career into a sympathetic one through the viewpoint of poor, down-on-his-luck Cade. The plot elements are attention-getting and fresh, but the execution misses its potential. Cade has sex on camera to pay his sister's medical bills--the sister he has custody of because his parents are meth heads. This might've ripped out your soul...if it were his only option. --He claims he quit his high-income fighting profession because he didn't want to explain the bruises to his little sister. But he has no problem explaining his sex videos plastered all over the interweb in the coming years? --He's dating rich girl Alexa, who has a good job and would happily give him the money. But that would hurt his ego. Who cares how much his sex with porn stars hurts her. He relieves her of her virginity under the premise that he's given up his job, and wonders why she's upset when he leaves--just hours later--to screw on screen. It's just a job. Cade is a dumb ass in every way that matters. Alexa has more grit, but she's a portrait of high-society stereotypes. And while the reader struggles to forgive Cade of his betrayals, it's impossible to condole with Alexa forgiving him. By the end, there's happily ever afters and sexy scenes to spare. Between that and the inventive content, there's enjoyment to be had.
