Title: Hard To Love You
 (book 3 in the Love Series)
Author: Megan Smith
Release Date: November 12, 2013
What do you do when the one you’ve always wanted becomes too Hard to Love? 
Hailey Taylor’s heart has always belonged to Mason Cahill, but one secret has changed everything.
Things on the baseball field come easy for Mason Cahill. Why can’t the rest of his life be simple? Mason’s finally admitted he wants the one girl he can be himself around, but one secret destroyed that.
Their love isn’t sweet and simple. It’s hot, loud, and messy. But now, when he’s finally all in, she’s folded. Sparks fly. Tempers flare. Hearts shatter. One thing is certain… everything has changed.

Who will be too Hard to Love?

:My Review:
 I so loved Mason and Hailey’s story. They broke my heart at times, Hailey’s stubbornness made me want to shake her and I found myself yelling at Mason to just grow a pair and confide in Hailey already and tell her the secret he was hiding to protect his family…I was up til 1 ish because I couldn’t stop till I was done!
I love when characters have a history together, he’s her best friends older brother and has known her for years, he looked out for Hailey and protected her the same way he did his sister. And let me tell you, poor Hailey needed it! Her father treated her HORRIBLY, and I mean HORRIBLY and the first time Mason caught wind of how he treated her he vowed he’d always protect her…and he did, BUT at times he was also the first one to hurt her with his actions. I really liked how HTLY went back and forth between the present and the past, because it let us see how Mason & Hailey’s friendship began as kids and how it progressed naturally into something more as the years went on. There are secrets and misunderstanding a’plenty here and secrets and lies by truck load courtesy of Lily and Brittany. It would be nice to see them maybe get a nice flesh eating disease in the next book. Well, maybe just Brittany. You may actually find yourself feeling slightly sorry for Lily by the end *GASP*

Now, Mason and Hailey are apart for a good majority of the book while they work their issues out, they don’t come to a resolution until almost the end, and, being completely honest stories like that normally drive me absolutely bat sh*t crazy. There’s nothing I dislike more than seeing a couple go back and forth for almost 80%+ of a book because it can get boring and monotonus BUT Megan is the first author EVER that didn’t drive me crazy with having her characters not work it out until the end. She kept the story moving and kept it interesting by involving the secondary characters. We get a chapters from Hunter and Mackenzie’s POV detailing their wedding day 🙂 
I loved the ending, even though I kind of had a feeling I knew where the ending was headed that didn’t stop me one bit from thinking “ooh ohh please let that happen, please let that happen” suffice it to say I was all kinds of happy/excited when “that” happened lol.
These characters are fun to be around, it’s like you’re hanging out with your own friends. The focus on family in this series is a beautiful thing. I’m looking forward to Let Me Love You which will be Cooper & Jaylinn’s story <3
