Hard to Let Go - coverHard to Let Go 
(Hard Ink Series, Bk #4)
by Laura Kaye 

Blurb:
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.

Viviana's Review: 
The final installment to the Hard Ink Series has everything you would want and that this series has been known for: fast-paced, action-packed and hot, steamy romance! While sad to know this is the last book in the series, I'm glad it got the ending it deserves vs. being dragged on and on. Laura did a fantastic job of developing and carrying both the story arc and the individual characters through out each installments.

The title of this book seems to mean different things to different characters, the readers and maybe even to the author. "Hard To Let Go" for Beckett, the hero of this story, would be more about letting go of his past and the guilt he carries for Derek losing his leg because he saved his life. For the Kat, she has to make the hard decision of her career or family.

As usual, we got to see glimpses of all the characters from the previous books but the main focus was the hero and heroin, Beckett and Kat. Laura ability to have everyone interact with each other but not lose the focus of who the story is about is fantastic. It all makes sense. :)

I do wish there would have been a little more interactions or instances here Beckett and Kat had to hang out with one another to have a better sense of that "chemistry"... it was just too instant... too quick at first... I mean, I KKNOW the guy is SEXY as hell and he found her attractive too, but there was this desire from the very beginning that would have been better explained if there would have a bit more interaction with each other.... However, once they got to know each other, it makes sense, that they fit together. They will work out.

Beckett is a complex character. He's a strong man, not only physically, but has had to be mentally as well. Meaning he has build walls up emotionally to not only protect himself but he feels to protect others from himself. People see him as tough, but the truth is, he has a kind heart and is a softie. He just doesn't express it often or may not know how to go about it. He bottles his emotions up and has come to realize that that isn't a way of living.


Laura wonderfully wraps up the story and provides the readers with all the answers they have been waiting for. While I'm sad to know this is the end for the HARD INK series, I'm happy to see it was done so beautifully!


Rating; 4 Stars - LOVED IT

Excerpt

Kat pushed Beckett so that his back rested against the couch as she straddled his lap. She cupped his face in her hands and got up close, her breasts against his chest, her forehead nearly touching his, her soft hair forming a curtain around them. Beckett’s heart beat like a bass drum. She kissed him.

A soft brush of skin on skin at first, and then a nibbling tug at his bottom lip that made his cock jerk where she sat on him. “I care if you live or die, Beckett. I care, a lot.”

He swallowed hard as that odd, warm pressure filled his chest again. “Why?” he asked, meeting those too-perceptive jade eyes.       

“You really need me to spell it out?”

He really fucking did. Beckett nodded.

Kat kissed him. “Because you’re loyal, protective, and taking time away from your life to help my brother.” Another kiss. Beckett’s hands grasped her hips. “Because you’re smart, strategic, and a genius when it comes to gadgets and fixing things.” Kiss. “Because you keep trying to get Cy to let you pet him.” Kiss. “Because you’re gorgeous and sexy as hell.” Longer kiss. “And you fuck like a god.” Much longer, wetter, hotter kiss. “And because you called me ‘Angel.’”
             
Chest full, throat tight, heart pounding, Beckett kissed Kat on a groan, his thoughts struggling to process—to believe—that someone as beautiful and bright and together as Katherine Rixey could see all that in him when he couldn’t see most of it in himself. Hell, not even his parents had seen it.
             
Her arms wrapped around his neck and she sucked his tongue deep into her mouth, and Beckett was hard and aching and overwhelmed and more in need of being wanted than at any other moment in his life. And Kat gave that to him in spades. With her kisses. With her touch. With her desperate moans and grinding hips and pleading words. “I want you, Beckett. If we’re here for the night, I want you in me as deep and as hard and as often as you can. For just tonight, I don’t want to think about anything else but you.”
             
“Jesus, Kat,” he rasped, banding his arms around her back and pinning her to him. He devoured her mouth, sucked on her neck, bit the soft tendon that led to her shoulder. “I want that, too. But not here.”
             
“Why?” she moaned as his hands kneaded at her ass.
             
It was the silver lining in the cloud of being stuck here overnight. “Because for once, I finally have you all to myself with no need to hurry. I’m taking you to your bed, stripping you down, and spreading you out just like I said I would.”
