Cade’s always taken risks… 

Cade takes cares of his sick younger sister by doing what he does best–cage fighting and starring in adult movies, his newest harebrained moneymaking scheme designed to pay for his sister’s growing medical bills. But when his latest gig finds him admitted to the ER sporting an erection from hell, thanks to the little pill given to him by the director, he can’t get the pretty little nurse who treated him out of his head, even though he knows she’s so far out of his league it should be illegal. 

Alexa’s always played it safe… 

Tired of being pigeonholed as the sweet, innocent one, hardworking nursing student Alexa has been looking for ways to break out of her Goody Two-shoes image. When her friend suggests the outlandish idea of losing her virginity to the sexy and sure-to-be-skilled porn star, Alexa is mortified. But then when Cade refuses her proposition, she finds herself pissed off and embarrassed. When she tracks him down to give him a piece of her mind, she isn’t prepared for what she finds. Watching him care for his little sister tugs at her heart, and suddenly it’s no longer just about losing her virginity, but about helping Cade. Because Lord help her, she might actually be falling for a porn star…

Natalie’s 4 Star Review

So how does one start a review of a book whose very first sentence is “Dammit. I knew a four-hour erection wasn’t normal.”

Well I say you start it with a HELL YEAH!

This is the third book by Kendall Ryan that I have read and she doesn’t disappoint. Creating a fun, flirty and original story with great characters and just the right amount of sexy to hook you.

Being an actual nurse I found it easy to relate to Alexa and her calling to help others. I appreciated that her character came across as real and down to earth. No flighty annoying fan girls here. Cade was the perfect combination of sexy bad boy cage fighter and caring brother . He did what he needed to do and made no apologies.

The attraction between Cade and Alexa is immediate but as you can image love is not easy when it’s between a porn star and a 21 year old virgin but it certainly does make for a good book.

If you are looking for a quick entertaining read that doesn’t take itself too seriously than this is the book for you.
