Synopsis (Goodreads):
“HARD TO LOVE.”

Hard head. Bad attitude. Terrible boyfriend. That’s what my exes have said about me—but I wasn’t serious about any of them, so what do I care what rumors they spread? What I need is to be left alone; by the press, by the paparazzi, and by women.

Too bad I’m about to be surrounded by them for the weekend. My obnoxious, matchmaking brother is getting married, and he’s doing his damndest to find me a wedding date…

“HARD TO FIND.”

That’s what they say about good men—they’re hard to find. Not that when I find one, I’ll be the type he’s looking for; too nice, too ordinary, too boring.

My cousin is getting married, and her fiancĂ© insists on throwing me at his brother. Cold, uncaring professional football player Tripp Wallace would never look twice at a woman like me. Too bad for both of us, I was wrong…
Thoughts on Hard Love: Oh, man. Tripp is...gloriously clueless, maybe? Like, the guy knows he's not the friendliest person in the world, but he genuinely has no idea just how jerk-like he tends to come off. He's way too blunt, always has to be right, and he CANNOT let something drop once he gets his teeth in it. Honestly, how did his mother survive raising the Wallace siblings? They're mostly feral wild children in the bodies of grown adults and WOW are they fun to watch from a distance.

Chandler gets caught in the Wallace orbit when her cousin hooked up with (and then marries) Buzz. Chandler is very much not feral and wild and all those other things and she's actually a pretty good counter-balance to Tripp's utter disregard for pretty much everything. Sure, sure, it takes time for her to realize Tripp isn't the jerk he comes across as and it takes even more time for Tripp to realize he's going to lose the best thing that's ever happened to him if he doesn't change his ways, but they get there.

With, as it turns out, the help of Tripp's 15 year old neighbor girl who gives FANTASTIC advice while side-eyeing and sassing Tripp so hard it hurts. Hurts in a good way, that is.

Some axe-throwing, a GLORIOUS display of lady-strength, kisses in the rain, sass, and steam. The Wallace siblings are a bit of a mess in the best way possible. *thumbs up*
