NEW REVIEW: Delaney Diamond - A Hard Man To Love
Delaney Diamond - A Hard Man To Love - Available Now! - 5 out of 5 books -
wants nothing to to with Derrick Hoffman, even though she is having his baby.
Four months ago, Eva ended things with Derrick because she had done the one
thing that was not part of their agreement: she fell in love! Derrick Hoffman
grew up privileged and is used to having what he wants...when he wants it. So
after the death of his stepfather, he decides he wants the baby that Eva is
carrying. Eva has no plans of giving up her child, which leaves her only one
choice, and that is to go along with Derrick's plan of marriage. Derrick had it all
planned. He would give Eva a comfortable life while getting to see his daughter
everyday. He didn't plan on falling in love with Eva. He has never uttered
those words to anyone, not even his mother. But when an unexpected event takes
place, Derrick realizes what's most important in life.
A Hard Man to Loveis an excellent read by Delaney Diamond. The character development is
outstanding. Diamond brings the characters to life and has you feeling different
emotions toward them as you're reading. One minute you will find yourself just
as mad at Derrick as Eva is, and the next minute you will find yourself feeling
sorry for him because you can feel the pain that he is in. She also does a
fantastic job with plot development. The way she weaves the primary plot and
several secondary plots seamlessly makes for a terrific story line. This is the
2nd book in her Hawthorne Family series. I have not read the first book, but A Hard Man to Love makes me want to go
seek it out!
