Hard to Handle is the conclusion of Hard to Hold. We’re given the same intensity as book one but the story is focuses on Lynx and Reagan. ~ Paige, Guilty Pleasures
Lynx Caine is no stranger to trouble. He’s found himself knee deep in it more times than he can count. But never has he found himself in the sort of hot water he’s in now. Lynx has been waiting what feels like a lifetime for Reagan Trevino to dump the loser she’s spent nearly a decade with. Now that she’s single, Lynx is free to make his move. And he fully intends to do so.
However, Reagan is not going to be easy to catch. She has some stipulations for the bad boy of Embers Ridge, and she has every intention of sticking to them. Or that was her plan. Unfortunately, her good intentions are thwarted when a madman draws her right into the line of fire. When Lynx refuses to let her out of his sight, Reagan soon realizes the sexy country boy might be tattooed from neck to knuckles, but he’s got a heart as big as Texas and resisting him is a whole lot harder than she anticipated.
I loved the first book in the series and happy to see Lynx and Reagan get a second chance of happiness. It did take me a bit to get into their story. I was surprised at this fact since the pair had chemistry from a young age but something or someone was always getting in their way.
Lynx is as sexy and persistent as his cousin. He wasn’t going to give up on the attraction he had for Reagan. He’ll put himself in harm’s way to protect his family and friends.
Reagan is a strong women but has been in an abusive relationship for years. Its evident that she’s always loved Lynx but for some reason she couldn’t admit it. She has a hard time admitting it but you can see her walls crumble. Lynx has proven his devotion to her and his community.
Along with their relationship, we are given the conclusion of this suspenseful series. Amy’s ex is still causing havoc the community and the people in it. I liked how other Nicole Edward’s characters make an apprentice in the book – cousin’s, their wives and husband’s. They helped create this interesting read.
