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.

My Take:

Aw, it will be so hard to let go of this series!

This series has been one of my favorite since I picked it up. Which is surprising, because with the heavy military presence, these books just don’t ever sit well with me. But Laura knows how to write such realistic, broken characters that sold me from page 1.

In the final installment of the Hard Ink series we get Kat and Beckett’s story plus, the conclusion of the overall plot arc of the series and what really went down that devastating day in Afghanistan and their determination to get to the bottom of what happened and to clear their name.

Of all the couples in the series, Kat and Beckett are probably my second favorite couple. Like all the other males, Beckett carries a lot of guilt about that day. Not to mention, a pretty dark past that keeps him isolated from all emotions. Kat brings out a lot of emotions from Beckett; most good but either way, he isn’t really used to it and it makes him a hot mess.

I adored Kat. She is fierce and feisty, but vulnerable at the same time. She is such a great support for both her brothers and Beckett. She wears her emotions on her sleeve and I loved that. True to the other Hard Ink novels, Kat and Beckett have many hot & sexy scenes. Their scenes are the hottest ones in the series I think!

The ending had me in tears. Simply because everything that the team has worked so hard for in the weeks clearing their name, comes to a close. It was heartbreaking but uplifting.

The Narrator

I love Seraphine Valentine. She has done all the books in the series. She handles every aspect of these novels with grace. The emotions and the sexy times (haha). I am excited to see more for her in the future!

If you couldn’t tell, I loved Hard to Let Go. I also loved that things are left open to the spill off series about the MC. I highly recommend this series to EVERYONE.
