Book Review, The Hard Way by Katie Ashley


The Hard Way

The Hard Way by Katie Ashley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cade Hall has grown up very privileged and not having any consequences for any actions in his life due to his father being able to get him out of everything.

One night of stupidity on his part proves that his father can’t get him out of everything. In order to stay on the college football team he has to do community service at shelter working with troubled youth.

He’s quite shocked that he’ll be working with Avery Prescott. A girl from his past. They worked together on a project during their senior year of high school. While they were working on the project they became very close. Cade has grown up without love and besides acting pretty stupid sometimes he is very intelligent and is drawn to Avery who’s also pretty smart and doesn’t put up with his crap. Calls him out on it.

Avery is devastated by Cade’s sudden change in attitude towards her and his actions totally ruin her reputation plus she gets corned by the ‘mean girls’. (Teenage girls are just cruel!!!). Luckily she’s close enough to graduation that she doesn’t have to go back to school.

Avery is very surprised to have to work with Cade again. She gives him the nastiest jobs she can find. Through football Cade is able to connect with the kids through the shelter. I believe working with the kids makes Cade start to wake up and become a better person.

Will Avery and Cade overcome their pass to have a future and will Cade’s father allow that to happen?
