Told from dual third person perspectives HARD TO LET GO is the culmination of weeks of investigations searching for the truth behind the disastrous Afghanistan mission that left six soldiers and their commanding officer dead, and five others caught in a military conspiracy that reached close to the top. Each of the previous installments brought out heroes one step closer to finding the truth.
Beckett Murda stands alone. He is a man who is numb to his surroundings but determined to keep his distance until the time comes to take down the people responsible for the destruction of their lives. Enter Kat Rixey- a government attorney and Nick Rixey’s sister- and the woman who will keep Beckett from further destroying his life. But Kat is hiding a secret that if revealed will aid in the focus off of her brother’s search for the truth. When Kat reveals the information the team needs to finalize their investigation, everything will come full circle.
The relationship between Beckett and Kat is initially strained as Beckett tries to distance himself from forming new friendships or getting involved with the Team leader’s sister. But like all romance storylines, the sexual attraction is strong and there is no denying that Kat and Beckett are destined for their own happily ever after-if only Beckett can let go of his past. The $ex scenes are intimate, sensual, and hot.
HARD TO LET GO is an ensemble storyline. All of the previous couples, as well as the members of the Raven MC play a secondary and supporting role throughout the storyline. We are witness to the building relationships between the Special Forcers soldiers, and the women and men that they love. Each of our series heroes has found his happily ever and with it comes the realization that life will continue but for the lives that were lost.
Laura Kaye’s HARD INK is an exceptional character driven series where the focus is not only on the couple in question but on the group of heroes as a whole. The friendships formed between brothers (both blood and of the heart) are heartwarming, riveting and inspiring; they support and nurture one another the way family should support the people that they love. Laura’s storylines are seductive; she will pull you into the depths of heartbreaking struggles, and intoxicating romance arousing your curiosity about the ‘what ifs’ and the future for five soldiers and the women they love. The intense pain and sorrow of the past will never be forgotten but finding the one person that calls to your heart puts everything into perspective. Congratulations Laura Kaye for the inspiring and provocative world of the men of Hard Ink.

In this explosive finale to the Hard Ink series, bullets will fly, blood will be spilt, tears will fall, love will conquer and panties will melt!
The love aspect of Hard to Let Go comes from the developing relationship between Beckett Murda Katherine Rixey. Since their first encounter where Beckett pulled a gun on Kat, the sexual chemistry between the two has been palpable. To all outward appearances though, Kat and Beckett do not get along and every chance they get, they antagonise each other. When the two leads give in to the physical pull they feel to each other, they cannot deny the feelings that their very heated encounters stir. Standing in the way of Kat and Beckett's chance of happiness is his need to keep rigid control of his emotions. Beckett is still dealing with the physical and emotional repercussions of the Afghanistan mission that took the lives of seven of his brothers-in-arms and irrevocably changed the lives of him and his fellow survivors. We also get an insight into Beckett's past and learn the heart breaking truth behind his legendary control. Beckett needs help if he is going to break down the walls he has built around his heart, and if there is one woman strong enough and determined enough to bulldoze her way in, it is feisty, independent Kat. Beckett opening up to Kat and his team leads to some very emotional moments; other than Kat, the most notable being between Beckett and best buddy Marz.
As well as seeing Kat and Beckett's story unfold, there is also the continuing search for the truth of who was behind the ambush in Afghanistan that destroyed the careers of the Hard Ink men and took the lives of their friends. New dangers are uncovered and the action is so well written that you feel that you are right there with your favourite characters. To avoid spoilers, I will not go into too much detail, but suffice to say, this is a very satisfying conclusion to the series and you will not be disappointed.
I can not recommend the Hard Ink series highly enough. You will laugh, you will cry and you will never look at unicorns the same way!
If you enjoyed meeting the men of The Ravens MC, they will be getting their own series. It starts with Hard Ink employees Ike and Jess
I'm still utterly speechless at how good this book was, totally got drawn in (as in I was up reading into the early hours!)
This is book 4 of the Hard Ink Series plus 3 novellas, and I can't believe I'm going to say this, but it also looks like the last too :-(
In this final instalment, we continue to follow the hard ink lads and their loved ones as they try to clear their names, the ending was 'perrrfect', this main story which has been building throughout the series builds to a crescendo of a finish, fast page-turning at its best!
Running along this story we also get to ride along with Beckett and Kat's love story! If you haven't read any of the series then their first meeting consisted of Beckett drawing a gun at Kat! Oh and Kat is the sister of Hard Inks owners Nick and Jeremy! (Cue hilarious scene between Nick, Beckett and the word 'Wuzzywoo'!)
My advice is to read the previous books, you could read this as a standalone but seriously why miss out on the other books that are just as good, have plenty of tissues ready for the sad moments (Beckett's backstory and his discussion with Marz was heartbreaking) oh and let's not forget a fan for the scorching hot scenes which are a plenty!
Thank You Ms Kaye for allowing us to ride along with the Hard Ink boys ! They will be missed......*hint hint* please feel free to bring them back to us at anytime ;-)
Then I started to get a bit jittery...
What if I'd left it too long since I read the last one? What if the magic had gone? What if I didn't care anymore??
I needn't have worried. Once again Laura Kaye weaved her wordy spell around me and immersed me into her world.
I really liked Kat and loved her interactions with Nick and Jeremy. She's a fiery little pocket rocket as as someone who had two older brothers and barely hits 5ft 2" myself, I love that in a character!
Beckett, Beckett, Beckett. He adds a whole new dimension to the phrase 'the strong silent type' my heart broke for him. Everything he's been through and yet she's a wonderful, kind, loyal man. Oh and he's absolutely delicious too!
I loved this book and the conclusion to the series. I'll miss these boys.
I liked this, the main characters Beckett and Kat were really well written and the storyline, which continued and was built on book after book, was a good one.
Beckett is a big, quiet and a distrustful loner who can't believe he could offer anything to anyone except his SF brothers. Kat blows into his life and he just feels something that he can't really identify, he's never felt it before. The story explores the change in both of them as they solve the problems around them.
I gave it five stars because I really enjoyed it. There are unanswered questions but in the grand scheme of things it didn't matter. The Ravens though are underused.
It's suitable for older readers due to content.
Note to publisher who has set the price - this series of e-books are expensive and I'm sure it puts a lot of readers off. I haven't bought the novella 'Hard to be good' because it's even more pricey. I bought the rest though.
Katherine and Beckett's story was the right one to end this series: a promise of redemption, acceptance and self-sacrifice. Finding live only after you have learned to love yourself....
This series allowed us into the lives of great characters and it really in Hard to Let Go, but all good things have to come to an end and so we have to say goodbye to these 6 couples and wait for their appearance in Hard As Steek, the cross-over novel with the Raven Riders out in September.
