Hard to Love You by Megan Smith with Giveaway, Excerpt, Playlist & Review

What do you do when the one you’ve always wanted becomes too Hard to Love? 

Hailey Taylor's heart has always belonged to Mason Cahill, but one secret has changed everything.

Things on the baseball field come easy for Mason Cahill. Why can’t the rest of his life be simple? Mason's finally admitted he wants the one girl he can be himself around, but one secret destroyed that.

Their love isn't sweet and simple. It's hot, loud, and messy. But now, when he's finally all in, she’s folded. Sparks fly. Tempers flare. Hearts shatter. One thing is certain… everything has changed.

“He’s not seeing anyone and he hasn’t done for a long time. Mason could never, ever hate you. He has been working on his house when he isn’t on the road. He’s waiting for you Hailey.”
Tears burn my eyes. I swallow hard.
“He loves you, Hailey. I think he loves you more now than he did before.”
“You’re damn right I do.” Startled at the voice, I jump and spin around.
The room grows quiet; you could hear a pin drop. The bag in my hand feels like a ticking time bomb. Mason takes a step closer to me and without apology plants his lips on mine. My heart stops completely, I stop breathing. Mason cups my face with his hands and tears fall from my closed eyes. I grip his shirt with one of my hands and hold on for dear life. I don’t ever want to be apart from this man again.
Mason places another kiss on my lips, more gently this time, and wipes the tears away with his thumbs. “I love you Hailey, don’t ever doubt that. You’ve always held a special place in my heart and always will.”

Sniffles echo in the bathroom and they aren’t from me. I giggle; I forgot MacKenzie was in the room with us. “I’m sorry.” She cries. MacKenzie stands up and hugs both Mason and me. “I love you two, now please get your shit together. I want my best friend back.” Mason places a kiss on my forehead. “And I need an answer to a question.” MacKenzie looks at me.

My Review: 4 stars
This was an interesting read. To find out the back story of how Mason and Hailey came to be together was something else. They've been through so much and man, did they make it hard for each other to love at times. It could have been so simple, but no, it turned into so much more because people are insecure or jerks, or just not really thinking about anything else except for what's in front of them.  Mason doesn't mean to cause a problem, he's just trying to protect his family. The thing is, he went about it the wrong way, and it nearly cost him everything. Hailey and everyone else should have given Mason the benefit of the doubt, knowing how he is about protecting his family. The thing is they didn't, except for his Mom. She's the one who gave him the best advice ever. He took that advice and ran with it. I truly loved the ending - it was amazing. Now, I just have to wait for the next couple of books to come out to get the rest of the story. Can't wait! Megan did such a great job with this book and the characters in it. Loved or hated them, there really wasn't any inbetween. To me, that's always a job well done by an author.
