Overview

Hating him is easy. Loving him is hard.

Derrick Hoffman never quite got over not having a relationship with his biological father. The woman he was seeing is pregnant, and there's no way he's going to let her raise his child without him–even if it means coercing her into marriage.

Eva Jacob made the mistake of falling in love with Derrick, a man she knows is incapable of love. After their breakup, she discovers she's pregnant. When she agrees to a loveless marriage, she tries to shield her heart from further pain. But she soon discovers that the heart wants what the heart wants, and her heart wants Derrick's love.

I really felt this story was incorrectly identified, its not an interracial read but rather a story of a biracial man who comes into great wealth and decides to marry the woman who is going to have his baby even though he wasn't sure about his feelings towards her. I don't care for authors who never bother to describe what the herione looks like, or uses such minimal information that you can't really get a picture of them, for me this is helpful since it makes the story much richer to read. The character development left me feeling like I really didn't care what happened to them, since none of them had any depth. This is suppose to be book 2 in series, and while I didn't read the first one, I honestly don't beleive it would make a difference.

I liked it but I felt it was missing something...or needed a little more...

This was a well written romance story. I liked it very much. Would have given it a 5 if it had been finish. Not following through with her father's find, I felt the story was a bit incomplete.

Very good read. I enjoyed the characters. Derrick is a truly hard to love, but in the end , he's truly hard not to love.

I enjoyed the book. I wish it was longer to allow the characters and storyline to developbmore but still provided enough of a storyline to understand derrick's struggle. Overall, great read.

I love nothing more than an emotionally stunted, brooding male deep in the throes of lust, want and love. Usually makes for a good story and this was no exception...

This is a well written, well developed story. Loved the characters and can't wait to read the next installment in Hawthorne Family series. Ms. Diamond didn't disappoint!

"A Hard Man To Love" indeed! I really enjoyed this book even when Derrick was arrogant. I enjoyed the spark between the characters and thought that the book was dead on. I would have liked to see her meet her dad, but I was happy Derrick got the information regarding his whereabouts. Good book!

Wanted more of a descriptioin of Eva. What did she look like? The transition was a little quick, them "hating" one another and then them being in love.
