Harder by Robin York (Caroline & West #2)

Harder 5 Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

Meg's Review:

I absolutely fell in LOVE with the first novel in this series. Deeper (Read Our Review), was a real and relatable read that I could not put down. It grabbed me from the first line and held my attention till its last page. Harder was no different. I was on the edge about the ending of Deeper, it left me with so many mixed emotions that I was scared to start Harder. I didn't know where Robin was going to take me. We left with West going back home, and Caroline fighting for herself in Putnam. Both of them had a huge fight ahead of them, while neither of them had their true love standing by their side to help. I, like most other readers, hurt for West and Caroline at the start of this novel. They are both apart and neither of them happy in any way, shape, or form.

"I did the impossible and walked away from Caroline. After that, everything in my life that was hard got harder."

Caroline knows what she wants, and she is determined to not give up on them. She has finally found her strength and she won't lose it, or him, again. We are taken to a whole new emotional level with this book.

"He exhales, rough, and I love it. Love getting under his skin. I Love the confirmation and the hit of truth, lust, spiking like nicotine through my blood."

West and Caroline are put on a course that is non-stop with its twists and turns. Their lives together are off to a rough and rocky start, but with the help of friends and loved ones, they have a fighting chance. I am in love with this world and these characters. I feel as if I know them. Robin York weaves a world that you feel like a part of. This series teaches you about fighting for love. You learn things you never knew you needed and fall very deep in love as Caroline and West continue their journey.


In Robin York’s provocative new novel, two young ex-lovers find themselves together again in the shadow of tragedy—and an intense, undeniable attraction.

Caroline still dreams about West. His warm skin, his taut muscles, his hand sliding down her stomach. Then she wakes up and she’s back to reality: West is gone. And before he left, he broke her heart.

Then, out of the blue, West calls in crisis. A tragedy has hit his family—a family that’s already a fractured mess. Caroline knows what she has to do. Without discussion, without stopping to think, she’s on a plane, flying to his side to support him in any way he needs.

They’re together again, but things are totally different. West looks edgy, angry at the world. Caroline doesn’t fit in. She should be back in Iowa, finalizing her civil suit against the ex-boyfriend who posted their explicit pictures on a revenge porn website. But here she is. Deeply into West, wrapped up in him, in love with him. Still.

They fought the odds once. Losing each other was hard. But finding their way back to each other couldn’t be harder.
