HARD TO HANDLE                                     JESSICA LEMMON
Posted: Sept: 24, 2013

 ONCE BURNED Sadie Howard never dates a guy more than once-but Fate has other plans for her when it comes to Aiden Downey, the one that got away. Aiden loved her, left her, and broke her heart. Yet suddenly she's bumping into him at every turn, driven to distraction by his wicked grin and rock-hard body. Now she can't resist finishing what they started-as long as she doesn't let herself fall in love . . .


Aiden Downey threw away the best thing he ever had when he let Sadie go, and now he's determined to win back the woman he's always wanted. Sadie agrees to let him into her life-and her bed-as long as there are no strings attached. But Aiden's not about to make the same mistake again. Can he convince her to take a second chance on a once-in-a-lifetime love?            


Hard to Handle was a well written book that I enjoyed.  I can’t say for me that I made a connection with this story.  Don’t get me wrong it was good.  But for some unknown reason it did not grab me.  Aiden Downey was the sexy biker that we all want to meet in our heroes.  Smart, feeling and strong.  Sadie Howard for me is the way I like to have women seen in books as strong, sassy, and smart in business but without being bitchy not to mention she could be sexy too with curves.
     I can only guess that the problem I am having with it may have be the subject matter.  That here you have two strong characters and they loved each other and yet they lived in so much fear that they just could not get out of each other’s way throughout a good part of the book that for me it just got frustrating after a while.  All because of a break they had between them a year before. When the HEA came it just was not that “Ah Hah” moment.  Now don’t fully go off my judgment please read and form your own opinion. 
     Sadie seemed to want to pay back Aiden for not loving her enough to go with him to help his mom a year ago.  Clearly the man was in a tough place with his mom dying, so, him breaking up over the phone was not his best idea, I will give her that.  But come on.  I loved when her best friend tells her basically you have milked this break-up one too many times now pee or get off the pot. Not that is a true friend. This authors writing I can’t fault it was well written and there were some funny moments and heartfelt ones too.
     I do recommend this book. DUE OUT OCT. 1 Provided by netgalley.
