I was a single mother with nothing to offer him. The last thing I needed was a complication in my life.

My heart was off limits, but it didn’t take long for him to wear me down with his gorgeous smile and charming ways.

I was a fool to think we could last.

Even though I did the right thing for the wrong reason, it didn’t matter in the end.

Secrets always have a way of

They never expected to find each other but life had other plans for them!!

To Jack, trust is something that was important to him especially when he had seen how trust had destroyed a relationship so the natural thing was to avoid them at all cost. But Chloe was a game changer and he knew it in his heart-despite fighting it. Chloe just wanted to raise her son Tanner and live her non existent life, quietly....but Jack came in barreling into her quiet life and bringing sparks and sound to it!!

This was a very great story about complicated relationships. My heart was torn when I read this book because I wanted so badly for things to go so smoothly for Jack and Chloe but you know what they say about relationships you have to work at them. This is so true with Jack and chloe because Chloe comes with some serious secrets and a child and Jack comes with some insecurities that ramp up when things start to get hot.

I really enjoyed how this was a slow build up to a relationship because there

This was a really cute single mom and opposites attract romance. It had that wholesome feel too it but also had a lot of heart and attraction that could burn up your reading device. Chloe and Jacks dynamic was fun and flirty but as the story progresses I love seeing the heart to hearts that they have. There was some push and pull when it come to the relationship but it wasn’t too much. There’s not a whole lot more to say other then I really enjoyed the story. I hope hot neighbor gets a book ...more

Beautiful second chance romance

Hard To Leave
is the third book in the Hard To Series and can most definitely be read as a standalone. I haven't read the two previous books, but after reading this one, that is definitely going to be rectified. From the outset I easily fell for Chloe, Jack and young Tanner. These were characters that found a place in my heart without even really trying.

Chloe is a single mum. Tanner is her adorable son. The last eight years have not been easy for Chloe, but she is
Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
Hard To Leave by S. Jones was an emotional and angst-filled read. This is the third book in the Hard series, but the first one I have read. I did not feel lost and enjoyed the story as a standalone.

Chloe is a single mother who guards her heart fiercely. There is no time in her life for any type of difficulty or obstacle to stand in her way and Jack is a big kind of complication she does not need! She also has secrets she guards just as fiercely. Jack was a great guy but had insecurities he

This book is the third in the Hard series and after reading the first two books in the series i knew i needed to read this one. This book series has to be one of the best series that i've ever read.

Jack is a 'Jack the lad' kind of fella and women throw themselves at him, this kind of makes it easy for him to choose whom ever he pleases and he does. He thought that he had everything he needed and he thought he had everything figured

This is one of those books that you never want to end. Chloe and Jack are opposites, but their chemistry is unavoidable. Jack is enjoying the single life until a family tragedy brings him to a little small town in the Carolina's.

Chloe is a single mother, working as a waitress, who just wants live a simple life and raise her son.

The second Jack and Chloe meet, you can't help but feel the connection. Chloe doesn't want any complications in her life, but it doesn't take long for Jack to wear her

This book was nice.It wasn't particularity good for me but I liked it.

Jack and Chole were nice characters.I fell for theme really quickly and was just rooting for them the whole time.Their story was a little bit complicated because Chole has some secrets and Jack has some insecurities,which was pretty much normal considering the situation.

I liked this book.I was quick,fun and sexy read.It was pretty emotional and hard to read sometimes.There were some parts that I didn't like but overall it was

Well written story with good characters.
Chloe's a single mother and works in a diner to support herself and her young son. A man was not on her radar!

S Jones does a fantastic job of taking her readers on a great story telling journey in the complicated relationship between Emily and Jack. The author makes you want to see these two characters have a happy ending. Without spoiling the ending, I can say that these characters are "real" and the emotions and tension created in the story are relatable to anyone who has struggled to make it work. Loved the twist with Brogan and fell in love with Emily's almost too perfect little boy, Tanner. Great ...more

Terrific story!!

Chloe and Jacks story is about finding what your heart truly wants. Both Chloe and Jack weren’t dating and didn’t have time in their lives. Chloe had a seven year old son and Jacks father had just passed away, leaving him the business to run. Chloe was from South Carolina and Jack lived in New York. Their connection took them both by surprise and it was a roller coaster ride to make it work.

I was immediately sucked in. I cried more than once and I couldn't put it down. I'm not usually into the romantic mushy stories but this was so amazing and definitely worthy of a reread multiple times!

This was an okay read. To be honest I struggled to feel the connection between Jack and Chloe. Then when we find out about the secret she keeps from Brogan I felt she was selfish and I found it hard to root for her to get her HAE.

Ugh. No

I could barely get through this. The heroine was sooo annoying. Stupid and duplicitous and too full of herself. She was a liar and it's bad enough that she harmed people deeply, but she lied to her own child as well. Then when it blew up in her face she had the stones to get angry with those who called her out on it. Apparently she felt she was such a speshul snowflake she shouldn't have to pay any consequences. Real piece of work, that one.
But Lord was the way she chased after Jack a
