Hard to Let Go on Goodreads


 Beckett was a wrung-out mess. He’d just spent the past hour talking to Emilie, and it was maybe more than he’d talked at one time in his whole life. He couldn’t exactly say he felt good, and maybe not even better, but he could say that he was a little proud of himself for facing his past. Didn’t matter that dealing with that shit was as comfortable as swallowing crushed glass, because choking it down was the only way he’d have a chance at a future. At least, a future that he really, truly wanted. One where he wasn’t alone. One where he wasn’t angry. One where he wasn’t wasting the time he might have left on this earth—time his seven fallen teammates no longer had. Jogging down the stairs from the third-floor apartment, Beckett headed to the gym. No matter how trashed he felt, he had one more conversation that absolutely had to happen tonight. With Nick. About Kat. Beckett had seen the all-knowing looks on Marz’s and Jeremy’s faces when he and Kat joined the all-hands’ meeting earlier in the evening. If he didn’t go to Nick soon, the guy was going to learn about them some other way. And then the hell was going to be even worse to pay. And Beckett didn’t want that to happen. Not just because he didn’t want the hassle. But because he owed it to Nick—as his friend and his brother—to come clean. Didn’t mean that his gut wasn’t all twisted up about whether Nick would think him good enough for his baby sister, though. He reached the gym door, took a deep breath, and punched in the pass code. Man up, Murda. Right. Inside, things were hopping, despite the fact that it was pushing eleven o’clock. Some Ravens were lifting weights. Others were shooting the shit around the table. And two guys were tossing a ball back and forth, driving Eileen crazy by bouncing it over her head. Easy was pounding out a fast pace on the treadmill. And, in the back corner, Nick, Marz, and Shane were poring over something on Marz’s desk. Beckett had faced down terrorists who wanted nothing more than to take his life with their very hands, and he’d probably never been as nervous as he was right now. For fuck’s sake. He moved into the room. About midway across he spied Cy peeking out from behind a weight machine. “You and me are gonna have a talk soon, too,” he said, pointing at the cat. A one-eyed blink was his only answer. And then he was standing on the far side of Marz’s desk next to Shane, peering down at what the three men were examining. Marz gave him a smile and tapped his finger against the pages. “Just going over all these instances when Merritt noted Kaine as having changed orders regarding counternarcotics missions.” “Marz was right,” Nick said, looking up at him. “Some of these gave me a bad feeling in my gut at the time, because they seemed out of character for Merritt. He was never a last minute kinda guy. Every damn time he’s marked those changes as having been ordered by Kaine.” Beckett nodded. And then his mouth acted without his brain’s permission. “I’d like to date your sister.”  


  About HARD TO LET GO: Beckett Murda hates to dwell on the past. But his investigation into the ambush that killed half his Special Forces team and ended his Army career gives him little choice. Just when his team learns how powerful their enemies are, hard-ass Beckett encounters his biggest complication yet—a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey. A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo shop following a bad break-up—and finds herself staring down the barrel of a stranger’s gun. Beckett is hard-bodied and sexy as hell, but he’s also the most infuriating man ever. Worse, Kat’s brothers are at war with the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights . . . and in his arms. Not to mention their enemies’ crosshairs. Now Beckett and Kat must set aside their differences to work together, because the only thing sweeter than justice is finding love and never letting go.

My thoughts...

I don't know about you but I'm a strictly a romance reader. I read almost all the sub-genre's in romance, paranormal, get the idea. But sometimes I get tired of one of them. That's how I've been feeling about romantic suspense. I still enjoy it, just not like I used to. 

There are some authors (and series) that draw me in even against my wishes. Laura Kaye's  Hard Ink series is one of them. From the very beginning I was hooked. I loved the men of this series. I guess the women are okay too. Haha! I'm kidding, (only slightly) the women of this series are perfect for the men they are matched with. Or for Jeremy, his guy was perfect for him too. 

To be honest my heart hurts a little that this series is over. I understand why, and in my head I appreciate it. It gets hard when every series you like keeps going forever. It's nice when some end after a certain amount of books. I was doubly pleased because you kind of knew going into this series how many books there was going to be. 

I have to say, Kaye did a wonderful job of tying up all the lose threads. I really felt like I got closer from this series. She even left you with a few surprises. (you'll have to read it to find out what) She also picked the perfect guy to end it. Poor messed up Beckett. He had a few issues rolling around in his head. Of course he did handle them well. A plus for a guy that runs around with a gun on him at all times. 

I think you'll find that Kat is perfect for him. She takes no crap from anyone, even him. But she also brings out his playful side. Something he need. They work good together and deep down inside they really get each other. 

To conclude, I think you'll love this series and should get them all and read them as soon as possible. I promise you'll be happy. I would read them in order (you know how I feel about that) just so you get the full picture of what's going on. 

If you've read any of them I'd love to hear your thoughts. Happy reading!

  1. Thanks for the review - I love finding out that I'm not the only person that really likes reading a series in just flows better for me when I do it and i seem to be able to connect with the characters better

    1. I feel the same way, Maria! You just get the big picture that way. I hate when your reading a book out of order and something that the author wrote jumps out at you and then you can't stop thinking...was that mentioned in the book before this that I didn't read? Hard to get back into it. Thanks for stopping by!
