“I just want to pretend. Even if it’s only for a little bit, okay? Act like nothing happened. Just,” she takes a deep breath then lets it out, “kiss me.” Her tongue darts out again licking her lips and I wish it was something else that she was licking.
I lean forward and place a sweet, gentle kiss on her lips. Hailey hates it when I kiss her like this but I’m doing it on purpose. I want her to take control of the situation. I don’t want her to hate me in the morning or later tonight.
Hailey reaches up, runs her fingers in my hair and pulls hard. It hurts but it feels too good to tell her to loosen her grip. She moans into my mouth and I swallow the delicious sound. Her legs wrap around my hips. I pull her so that she’s sitting on the edge of the counter. She’s fully leaning into me, if I move she’ll fall. I know she trusts me in this moment.
She pulls back, “Mason, if you don’t touch me I swear my ovaries will fucking explode.”
I chuckle and grind into her. Her head falls back, I start to nip and kiss at her neck. I reach for the bottom of her tiny tank top and quickly pull it over her head, tossing it behind me. She giggles and my dick twitches at the sound. Hailey notices and laughs harder.
I look down at where our bodies are joined, then look up at her and smirk. She has on the bra that she bought for me. It’s my favorite thing that she owns. It’s white and the cups are baseballs, it has a matching thong with it. Eager to see if she’s wearing it I reach for the waistband of her black stretchy pants and yank at the same time as she lifts. Fuck! My dick just got even harder at the sight of her sitting on the counter in nothing but a bra and matching thong.
I take a step back to admire the view. “Damn, Boo.” If this is the last time I may see her, I’m taking my fill of her body. I have to figure out what I’m going to do about this fucking Lily mess.
She bites her bottom lip and looks at me with hooded eyes. An idea pops to mind. When I grabbed a drink earlier there was a can of whipped cream in there. I wink at Hailey, turn to the fridge and fish out the can. I turn back around and Hailey’s eyes go wide.
Hailey shakes her head, “You are not.”
“Why aren’t I?”
She tried to hop down off the counter but I quickly step in between her legs.
She playfully pushes me back. “We are in your sister’s house and Ryder is upstairs.”
Ignoring her I place the can next to her, then reach behind her and unclasp her bra. Her hands fly up to keep it in place. “Mason…”
I grab the straps that are still on her shoulders and start to slowly slide them down her arms. I place a kiss on each of her shoulders. When I can’t move it down her arms any further, she gives in and drops her hands.
“That’s what I thought.” I say and then kiss her so she can’t sass back.
I open my eyes while kissing her, hers are still closed. I reach down for the can, kiss her one last time and then get to work on my master piece. “Lean back.”
Hailey listens and leans back on her elbows. I kneel down in front of her and place the can down by my knee. I reach up and slide my fingers inside her thong and slowly move them down her long, tan legs. Once it is completely off, I look up at Hailey and her mouth is hanging open. She thinks I’m going for a homerun but not so fast, I want to run the bases.

All my book friends know that I love a book that is full of angst. And that is exactly what this book has! And I loved every heart breaking minute of it. Hard To Love You starts off where Easy To Love You left off. While book 1 and 2 were about Hunter and MacKenzie, book 3 is about MacKenzie's best friend Hailey and Mason, MacKenzie's brother. Their relationship has always been rocky because Hailey is a few years younger than Mason. Mason is found huddling in a corner with Lily, and it looks bad. However, what Mason was really doing was trying to protect his family but decides to wait until the wedding to share what Lily had to say. Too bad for him Hailey can't be with him until he comes clean and tells her about Lily.
This is where we finally get the story behind the couple. And it is definitely a heart thumping love story. We get a bunch of flashbacks, so it skips from present to past quite a bit, but I love when a story is written well enough in this style and Megan can definitely write past and present very well.
You know those characters that have you wanting to reach in the book and throat punch them? Well this book has 2 of those for me. Lily and Brittany. I hate both characters, they are envious of everyone else and try to destroy their happiness. Hailey has had a hard life dealing with a drunk father who blames her for their family struggle. So it's hard for her trust people but Mason's family has always been there for her, so when her and Mason break it it's especially hard for her.
When I'm reading a book and it makes my heart beat faster with anticipation, I know that the author did a good job of making me connect with the characters, and I connected with both Mason and Hailey. Yes I wanted them both to stop acting so stupid, but I still loved them both. Megan has left me in suspense once again! I can't wait to get my hands on Cooper and Jaylynn's story, I'm dying to know what is going on between the 2 of them. Overall I give 4.5 stars, it would have been a 5 star read for me, but there were some editing mistakes so I took away half a star for that.
