**Hard To Forget is a full-length standalone romance with a HEA**
This time, however, Ms Jewel brings us a woman in a man’s world as our heroine, Delaney, is a bodyguard. To get to where she is she isn't just as good as the guys but better although she might lack physical strength she makes up for it with tenacity, endurance, and good old fashioned stubbornness! Delaney can and will prove herself but her first really big assignment will test her in ways she never expected!
Jax is a successful businessman but he just happened to have been in the wrong place at the worst possible time and now his life is in danger. Jax is no fool though and hires the best there is to watch over him, but a female? Well yes, the 'girl' might act all tough but underneath it's obvious to Jax that Delaney is just a pussycat; but this cat has claws and is about to show Jax (and herself) just what her mettle is made of! Admiration doesn't quite cover what Jax feels though and this strong couple are about to face challenges they never expected as their two worlds collide with explosive results!
I loved the kick-ass heroine and Delaney just keeps plugging away no matter what. She is determined, courageous, and yet not hard boiled which the author cleverly shows right from the start with interactions with family. Delaney makes mistakes but owns them and as the story progressed, I was cheering for her!
Jax, now where do I begin? He starts out as an arrogant toad who you just want to slap but as he opens up, his fierce spirit just kind of makes sense. To be frank, he is a hunk with lots of dosh and very few friends he can really trust so his brash manner does make sense. I will not lie, at times he behaves like a total armpit but when he acquits himself, he does so in spectacular style! This man loves to be in charge and although he might have to obey his bodyguards in some things, there are times when, well you just have to read the book! The words kindle and melt spring to mind!
I read Hard to Forget in one day so that might begin to express how hooked I was by it. If you like strong female leads, then this ticks that box. Looking for an alpha male? Jax, Jax, Jax, well you get the idea. I was completely engaged throughout this story and although I felt the bad guys at times felt superfluous to the real story, I nevertheless really enjoyed reading this book. Action, humour, heart, with a dominating sexy alpha male who is challenged by a sassy, smart, independent woman.
This worked as a standalone so what are you waiting for?Read this book and enjoy the ride!
