A jaded billionaire.
The girl who got away.
A second chance has never been so sexy.
Technology has it out for me. And I’m not talking about my ever-ailing phone or the temperamental Smart Board in my classroom. I’m talking about the internationally hailed “Tech Genius” formerly known as the boy I used to love.
It was bad enough seeing that cocky smile staring back at me from my newsfeeds, the gossip sites, and—fine—the scorchingly hot men’s fitness magazine I bought in a moment of weakness. But now he’s back home, teasing me with the memories I’ve tried to leave behind, crowding into my space and taunting me with the kiss I can’t resist. I know it’s only a matter of time before I lose him again. He’s already told me he isn’t staying, warned me he’s changed. I know better than to let him get too close, so why can’t I push him away?
They call me a visionary. An innovator. Hell, last week a headline touted me as the billion-dollar geek keeping Silicon Valley’s panties wet. Try living that down. Strip away the media BS, and I’m just a tech-minded guy with my eyes on the future and no time for a past I can't change. So what am I doing following the sweet sound of its laugh back to the woman who passed on our chance at forever?
I tell myself all I want is to say hello. To see her smile. Just a few minutes to pretend we’re still the “us” I thought would never end. But once I've had a taste of the too tempting woman she's become, a few minutes isn’t enough.
The man I am today is used to getting what he wants, and I want her.
The problem? She wants the guy I used to be.
Ten years later, all that’s changed is… everything.
With every Mira Lyn Kelly book I read, I enjoy her writing even more. Hard Crush is a wonderful second chance romance story with all the emotions!
Hank and Abby dated for four years when Hank was given the opportunity of a lifetime. Abby knew that she would have to step away from Hank so he could have the life he deserved, and she did. Ten years later, Hank is back and has his sights set on Abby.
I absolutely loved this book. Hard Crush ran through every single emotion possible. The writing is so flawless, you feel completely connected with the characters. I loved the banter, the chemistry after ten years that was still going strong, Abby’s reluctance and Hank knowing what he truly wanted. Hard Crush is one of the best second chance romances I’ve read!
