Hard to Resist

By Shanora Williams

Release Date: February 21, 2013

My Review: 4 Fantastic Stars!
Natalie and Nolan have something in common, they both know the excruciating pain of heartbreak, having had their hearts busted into pieces by someone they loved and trusted. The difference between Nat and Nolan is the way they handled their heartbreak. Although, neither way seemed to keep them from the pain, it does bring them to their chance encounter. That one chance encounter is all it takes.

 No matter how much Nat tries to convince herself, she can't help, but want Nolan. Nolan makes no buts about his desire to be with Nat. He is determined to have her. She is resistant to let herself give someone else her heart because she knows that makes her vulnerable to having her heartbroke again. Nolan is understanding and patient, he knows his trust has to be earned.

When Nat gets an unexpected visit from her past, her thoughts begin to change. After seeing the person she thought she loved for years, the person that broke her heart, she realizes that things were different than they seemed.

Being with Nolan takes on a whole new meaning and from that point on she no longer resists him. Allowing their relationship to flow naturally they both find their way. Although, they are faced with another obstacle in their relationship, after the initial upset, it doesn't pose as much of a threat to...

After all, true love never fails.

Hard to Resist is a beautiful love story with heartbreak, pain, healing, and learning to love again. The storyline is solid and comes together quite well. I really enjoyed the entire story, but I am particularly fond of the last half. Shanora did a great job seeing that the characters come full circle. 

I love Nolan for his honesty, his desire and determination to be better for Nat. And I love Nat for not allowing her past to rule her future, for being strong, and not letting fear keep her from what she deserves.

Kudos to Author Shanora Williams for developing a beautifully realistic love story. I very much enjoyed this read and cannot wait for the 2nd book to see where Nat & Nolan take their relationship!

I recommend Hard to Resist to all!

My Favorite Quotes
"I want to be hard to resist and hard to let go of." ~Nat

"Like I said, I've sort of been through what you're going through. And although I was terrible at dealing with it, I learned how to get over it. That's something that I can help you with, but that's only if you let me in. Right now, I'm stuck on the outer part of you. Your interior is where I want to be. I'm sure it will take me time but you have to work with me, Natalie. Don't hold off anymore. Okay?" ~Nolan

"I seriously want this to work. I've never wanted someone this damn bad. I have to keep you" ~Nolan

 Author Bio
 Shanora was born and raised in Matthews, North Carolina. She's a young, happy writer that loves the power of words. She's the author of The Story of Jackson Haddock, the New Adult OBTAINED series, and the New Adult novel, Hard to Resist.

The Beautiful Author, Shanora Williams
When she's not writing, she's reading or watching cartoons like a big kid. You'll always catch her laughing during the most random times. She still resides in Matthews, North Carolina and I has a wonderful family that you will hear her brag and talk about constantly. Whenever she wants to get away from words, she'll spend some time with her loved ones, eat gummy bears, or go get a drink from Starbucks-- depending on the weather. Her favorite hot drink during winter is a White Chocolate Mocha with whipped cream and her favorite cold drink is a Strawberry and Cream Frappuccino.
