“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 fiancé 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…

Okay, that tagline in the picture above is the total and complete truth! Tripp was totally a douche, or really just a completely difficult guy. It was tiring even to read the chapters that were from his perspective. I just wanted to slap some sense into him for so much of the book! Now, this may sound like it means I wasn’t enjoying the book, but it is the total opposite. His cantankerousness was also extremely amusing, and I was laughing for so much of this book. I mean constant laughing. It’s a good thing that I’m having to stay home so much these days, because this is one of those books that I’d have been laughing while sitting in public reading, because I just couldn’t stop. If you’ve been following my reviews of this series, you’ll know that Buzz from Hard Fall, has found his way up to my top 10 boyfriend list, but man do I feel sorry for Tripp having to deal with him. And we totally got to see a different side of their family with this book, or maybe it’s just that we got more of the Wallace family in this one. To be honest, I’d kind of thought we’d get their sister, True’s story in this book, but I think she’s next!
I kind of wish maybe we’d actually had Chandler have dinner with her family one time or something. I mean we get how her family was from knowing her cousin Hollis’s story in the last book. But I think we could have gotten a little more there. And then I was a little irritated that Chandler got mad about the issue with the first real date they had, especially when she even called it and talked about it on that actual date!
I did really like how they wrapped it up though. How they came to their conclusions on how to get over themselves or how to fix it, in Tripp’s case. And then there was Tripp’s dog walker/neighbor, or house sitter as she liked to call herself, Molly. Oh my gosh. She was perfect. It was so much fun when she was talking to Tripp. That’s part of what had me rolling with laughter. And I wonder if anyone else noticed the Chanandler bit at one point, a little Easter egg in the story for a fan of the tv show Friends.
Finally, I’m extremely thrilled that we are getting True’s story next, and that this isn’t the final book. Trilogies are great, but series are way better!
