    I read this book during my teens Most of the books I'd read up until that point were from the female POV so it was interesting to see it from the male's side Well written and unputdownable

    I have had this book on my shelve for about 2 years at least I just never seemed to get round to it But as I was having a readathon this week I cleared my locker at work of books and brought them all home to read and this happened to be in thereTo be honest I didn't know much about them apart from the fact that they appear to be Girlycontemporary novels but told from a boys point of view This is uite a rare occurrence so that piued my curiosity I mean from the cover design it's clear they aren't aimed at boysRich is broke he never has much money and neither does his parents they scrimp and save on everything but he's starting to get fed up with it Taking a chance on getting some money he sends some sketches off to some artdesign companies hoping to get some work and sure enough one gives him a lucky call Soon he has money new clothes and the girl of his dreams But is it everything he wants?I will put a warning right here before I even get to the book properly this is not suitable for younger readers there is uite a bit of reference to sex and nudity in this book It's not massively over the top or graphic but it's there If it had been a tiny bit present then I would have given up but as it was I just skimmed the ruder bits To me Rich was a self centered arrogant little wotsit he has no respect for his parents or teachers and really just seems girls as an object of lust He talks back and is lazy he skips school and does what he wants when he wants To be honest he thoroughly annoyed me for most of the book but despite that i had this weird feeling like he could change or that I should give him a chance I think I saw a hint of goodness in him so I stuck with it These are written uite well and the style flows well I read it in a couple of hours so they are definitely easy reads which is another reason I stuck with it I liked his art teacher Huw he made me laugh and I could feel his frustration when dealing with Rich And then Nick and his wife Barb who run the design company interested in Nick are funny crazy and spunky They have a real energy to them and make the book feel fun and alive I liked their input and the effect they had on RichThis book did make a chage to the normal chick lit out there and seeing into a guys mind was different and I think I started to enjoy it I certainly was interested enough to go onto book 2So if you want a lazy summer read the sort of thing you can read whilst relaxing on the beach or in your back garden then this will be a good one but it probably won't 'wow' you

    Money money and money that's all Rich thinks about in the book “Hard cash” by Kate Cann But things take a huge turn when Rich discovers money can most definitely change your life Rich is a poor young man in college for art but it takes a huge turn when he sends in his artwork to company But when money flows his way everything begins to change from the girl of his “dreams” to the clothes the houses and even school But how much can money REALLY change you? “Hard cash” is perfect and has my utmost recommendation for the ones that like to make decisions and for the others that choose to take risks “Hard cash” is the book where the problems keep coming and you cannot set it down MONEY “I stare at him face blank I feel like the whole of my body is being flooded with something strong and sweet Then my hand slowly detaches itself from my side and trembles its way across the desk and closes round the fat thick delicious dirty edged wad of money” WOMEN“Oh don't be so sour richy Come on lighten up” and she starts schmoozing these little breathy kisses up the side of my face I can't resist it not for long I start kissing her back and soon were into a really heavy session I’m having these unreconstructed male thoughts like she owes me” CONFLICT“The kitchen feels like it's swaying shaking like all the airs been sucked from it “Richard” whispers mum “You apologize you ” I don't want him to apologize dad grits out His voice full of disgust loaded with it His apology would mean nothing “Im going” I choke out “yes” says dad “get out” SCHOOL“It's a serious warning signed by the principle It lists all my unauthorized absences from lectures and lessons Its lists my failure to turn in assignments course work essays It winds up reminding me of the contract i signed when i enrolled promising to fulfil the reuirements of college and ends up threatening to kick me out at the end to term if i don't rectify things very fast”Even though the book is a great piece it's has its ups and downs The book leaves you with a sort of unsatisfying ending It leaves you on edge like “why???? ” Other than that it's a really good book that I recommend and would love to read the second

    I actually found that this book was pretty intresting It was a story about a guy who doesn't have cash but definately wishes he were wealthy Rich the protagonist is secretly in love with a girl who isn't exactly in his league Eventually Rich's wish comes true and he has money than he can count Although Rich gets all the money he could ask for it starts to bring him issues later in the novel i honestly picked this book only because i thoght the cover art was intresting and i know dont judge a book by its cover but its good i did cause i found a good book I recomend this book to anyone who thinks money is the greatest thing in the world because in this book you learn it isnt

    Hard Cash was a pretty good book It was practical it seemed a great way to portray a teenage mind i mean that's really how simple it comes down to you know Rich was a great character and I enjoyed him uite a lot His art was amazing too at least the pix i have in mind are lol Hated Portia but then again I hate all girls like that Bonny was cool she seems perfect for him Can't wait to go out and buy the next two books

    Not a bad book at all The main character is so painfully 17 though Wish I could shake him to make him get a grip
