Hard Ink Series Trailer:  

About HARD TO LET GO: 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 his biggest complication yet—a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey. A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo shop 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 the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights . . . and in 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.

Review - 5 Stars
Hard to Let Go, what an apt title. I loved this series and it will be really tough to say goodbye to it. Although, if someone could suggest to Laura Kaye that she could have a great spinoff with a security company… *wink wink*
            It’s amazing that these book are so deeply interconnected, but they can so easily be read as a standalone. The author truly knew where to draw the line with updating new readers to the backstory and keeping the readers who have gone through the series from getting bored. The whole suspense/mystery side of the plot is fabulous, very well crafted, and complicated without being confusing. I would also venture to guess that the author has done a lot of research because there an accurate feel, and the details ae fantastic.
            As always, I love the characters in this series. It is such a joy to be able to revisit them all in each book. Beckett has definitely been a huge mystery throughout this series. He’s been the one hiding in the background, making me curious. He is the strong, silent, tortured hero and now we finally get to go behind the mask and see what he is all about. In the beginning, he is everything on the inside that he looks to be on the outside. Gruff, focused, impatient, strong, etc, etc, etc. So, when he begins to explore his vulnerabilities, it’s even more poignant.
            Beckett’s childhood was a hell on earth, and his scars are as deep on the inside as they are on the outside. Letting them go is a long and hard road, but I loved seeing Beckett work to find that path, even when setbacks happen, he finds a way to cling to the possibilities of being free of those demons.
            One of my favorite things about this series is the way the author doesn’t make light of the effects of war on these men. Even after they find love. It’s not all rainbows and sunshine, but that love is a line of light, to give you something to walk toward as you fight your way out of the darkness. The fact that these guys recognize the need for help, don’t let their macho alpha ways, and big egos stop them from making healthy decisions for their mental state, is admirable.
            Kat is a fun character, she doesn’t take any shit and she is tough as nails. Well, except for her soft heart. She’s a rule follower, a true believer in the justice system. But, it’s hard to follow that edict when she sees how the system not only let her brother down, but tried to grind him into the ground. She takes a leap to help them, one that is a huge risk to herself and as time goes on, and she proves over, and over, that she is an asset and a worthy member of the team.
            The chemistry between these two is off the charts! The sex scenes are steamy, steamy, oh so hot! I was practically panting over Beckett right along with Kat. That man is a walking advertisement for sex.

            There is so much action and adventure, never a dull moment, and it keeps the story in constant motion, though at times, it slows down to let the story and the reader breathe. As I said, I incredibly sorry to see this series end, it’s really fantastic and I recommend it with 5 huge stars!
