About HARD AS STEEL: A Hard Ink/Raven Riders Crossover Novella After identifying her employer's dangerous enemies, Jessica Jakes takes refuge at the compound of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. Fellow Hard Ink tattooist and Raven leader Ike Young promises to keep Jess safe for as long as it takes, which would be perfect if his close, personal, round-the-clock protection didn't make it so hard to hide just how much she wants him—and always has. Ike Young loved and lost a woman in trouble once before. The last thing he needs is alone time with the sexiest and feistiest woman he's ever known, one he's purposely kept at a distance for years. Now, Ike's not sure he can keep his hands or his heart to himself—or that he even wants to anymore. And that means he has to do whatever it takes to hold on to Jess forever.

My thoughts....

I want to start off with telling you that I thought this story was VERY sexy. More so then the rest of the Hard Ink series. There are a few blush moments in this book, in a good way. 

I really enjoyed the Hard Ink series but wasn't sure how I'd feel about this new series she's writing that Hard as Steel breaches the gap for. I'm really not into the motorcycle craze that's going on. But since I really enjoy Kaye's books, I felt I owed it to her to give it a try. 

Plus I love Jess. 

I'm happy to report that I really enjoyed it. Like I said I love Jess and wanted her to have her own book since we were first introduced to her. There is just something about her. Sweet and funny. With me not into the motorcycle thing I wasn't sure how I would feel about Ike being a hero, (for some reason I really like his name, very unheroish, but yet it is) he ended up to be a real good one. 

Like with Kaye's other books Hard as Steel is full of humor, that really adds to the story. I know you shouldn't laugh when people are trying to kill you, but it does relieve the stress. It also does a wonderful job of going from one another. You now have a idea of what's to come.  

I can't say that Hard as Steel has sold me on the motorcycle craze, but it has encouraged me to try another one in Kaye's new Raven series. 

I would love to hear your thoughts on Hard as Steel or any of the Hard Ink series...I'm not forgetting her other books too. You can talk about them also. Or how about the motorcycle story line, you in or out? Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

  1. I really appreciate that you gave it a try! :)

    1. You are so welcome. I really glad that I enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next in the series.

  2. Thank you so much! ~Jessica, InkSlinger PR

  3. Sounds good. I don't mind MC romances sometimes.... I always struggle with the criminal aspect of some of the heroes. However it then makes me wonder, what's the difference when I read another particular best selling paranormal author whose characters are pretty criminal too. Lol

    1. I don't care for the crime part either. I think the issue for me is that most of the time you think drugs and other very bad things with them.

  4. Sounds good. I don't mind MC romances sometimes.... I always struggle with the criminal aspect of some of the heroes. However it then makes me wonder, what's the difference when I read another particular best selling paranormal author whose characters are pretty criminal too. Lol

  5. This does sound good. Laura Kaye is a good writer.
