Review: Hard to Let Go by Laura Kaye

Title: Hard to Let Go
By: Laura Kaye
Series: Hard Ink #4
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Five dishonored soldiers.
Former Special Forces.
One last mission.
These are the men of Hard Ink.

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 the biggest complication yet—seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey.

A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo 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 criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights—and 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.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have come to the end of one of our beloved series Hard Ink.  It always seems hard to accept the fact that a series is over and while you can always reread the books, there can never be any more surprises and that is when the sadness takes hold.  There will be no more wondering how wonderful the next couple will be, what light will be shed on certain secrets, and who is good or who is bad in the game.  I will say that Laura Kaye did a wonderful job on the entire series, writing Kat and Beckett, and keeping me interested in not only the action throughout but the love stories as well.

Beckett and Kat’s story was the perfect story to wrap up this amazing series.  Beckett and his badassness has never let any emotion through – actually, they are none existent.  He is tough as nails and probably could eat nail.  And sweet Kat, who drops in on her brothers at a very wrong time, has a knack for getting under Beckett’s hard exterior and messing with his absent emotions.  (Yep, it is one of those great love stories.)  I think the only way to describe their time together would be ‘extremely sexy’ oh, and ‘perfect.’

However, like the rest of the books, this is not all about a boy meeting a girl; it is about clearing our boy’s names and bringing those who wronged them to justice.  Kaye did just that as she wove her story to it’s final end with brilliant action, amazing characters, and wonderful love.

And the end?...Oh, the feels!

Also, I just say that we are going to get a Hard Ink #4.5 that involves a certain Raven member (Ike) and female tattoo artist (Jessica.) And…if that wasn’t exciting enough for you, we are also getting a book about Dare, Raven’s leader.  It’s like its Christmas!
