Blog Tour: Hard Love by Joanne Schwehm

Title: Hard Love
Author: Joanne Schwehm
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: July 18, 2017

Noah Winston’s life was perfect. He had it all: striking looks, more money than he could ever spend, good friends, and any woman he wanted. 

Margo Perry’s life wasn’t perfect, but it was her own. She didn’t need a man to make her happy or feel better about herself. 

Then he saw her – a gorgeous, rain-soaked stranger – but she wasn’t a stranger at all. They’d known each other a lifetime ago, when she was just a girl. Now, she was all woman.

Then it happened. The man she had spent her teenage years lusting over rescued her on a bleak yet fateful day. There he was, straight out of her dreams, looking better now than he had years ago.

The more time he spent with her, the more he questioned everything he knew.

The more time she spent with him, the more those old feelings resurfaced and grew stronger.

Too bad it only took one night, a few words, and a terrible decision, to ruin it all.

Too bad it was too good to be true.

Review by Jen Skewes

Margo Perry is putting all her efforts into her new company, Exquisitely Yours, a shopping service for those who can’t be bothered to do their own shopping. Her family may have money, but Margo wants to prove to herself that she can make it on her own. 
When she was younger, her older brother Adam hung out with a couple of heart thumping guys- Noah Winston and their friend Cade. Almost seven years older than Margo, they looked at her like Adam’s cute little sister. But to Margo-Noah was the stuff of her adolescent dreams. But he crushed her when he turned down her invite to her prom.
It’s years later, there’s a reunion in the rain and this time around Noah is the interested one. Margo is no longer that geeky teen ager; now she’s all grown up and gorgeous. 
“Margo?” Her eyes narrowed for a minute as she studied me. 
“Margo Perry?”
Her perfectly shaped lips fell open. “Noah?” When I nodded, her lips curved up in the prettiest way, and in an instant, I pictured not only kissing them, but doing other things to them as well.
But she hasn’t forgotten how she felt by Noah’s rejection and vows to just leave things in the past. Noah is equally determined to get to know this new Margo and is willing to pursue her despite her objections. 
 “What will it take for you to date me?”
Noah is insanely rich and is one hell of an eligible bachelor. Margo is more than aware of his reputation of loving and leaving them. But Noah is honestly interested in her. So what’s the problem? Noah has issues-big issues because of his childhood. He doesn’t talk about his family-he is too focused on his life now and the beautiful woman he wants to spend time getting to know. 
Hard Love has lots of drama and frustration. The two main characters are genuine and funny and worth getting to know between the pages. I love conflict and stomach plummeting moments. This one checks off all my boxes!  
 “For years, I told myself what I felt for you was just a crush, but now I know that even as a teenager, my heart wanted yours.”
