I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review...

I began this book without reading the synopsis and barely looked at the cover.  Truthfully, that never happens.  Not knowing what to expect at all, I was pleasantly surprised!  After reading this, I realized Hard to Handle was the 2nd book in the series.  Oops!  That's what happens when you don't research before you read!  

The book begins with Aiden Downey and Sadie Howard attending and being in the wedding party of their best friends and cousin of the groom for Aiden.  There is definitely some tension surrounding these two.  I feel like I should have read the first book in the series adn I probably would have enjoyed this book more than I already did.  So, now I have to one click the first book, Can't Let Go, and read it too!

Following the wedding and a drunken confession by Sadie, both go on with their lives expecting to get over the other.  Fate intervenes and forces them to face their feelings for each other much sooner than either one imagined.

Aiden, is on of those characters that you love because of their flaws.  The things in his personality that caused heart ache in the first place are also the qualities which make him a fantastic character.  He is a motorcycling riding, tattooed, rebel kind of guy with a huge heart.  What's not to love??

As for Sadie, she is headstrong and a driven type A person. Since, she and I have similar personalities it was easy to relate to her character.  As a result of the serious heartache and betrayal she has been dealt in her life, you can see exactly why she is gun shy about love.

I really enjoyed this book and I think readers will find it entertaining and heartfelt.  I also love that this book is only $2.99.  By now, I am sure you are aware of the fact that price points are a huge deal for us.  There are some books out right now that I want to read but refuse to pay $8.00 for an ebook unless it's a huge deal.  Kudos to Forever Romance for always keeping their authors books affordable.  Give this new author a chance and one click the entire Love in the Balance series!
