Kimi Kearns I truly enjoyed the series. I my humble opinion, I liked the series better than 'Fifty shades...'
Jenna If you go to Meredith Wild's website, she states that Hard Love will be the final installment in the FAQ area and should be released this summer.

! Hard Love, book 5 of 5!

I read the Hacker series book 1-5 while sick. I wish I had time to write reviews.

Harvard graduate Erica Hathaway’s whirlwind romance with former hacker and billionaire technology investor Blake Landon continues...

This was a spectacular read for me. Just what the doctored ordered. Many twists and turns and after all is said, an epic read. 6-star shelf.

Books in Hacker series should be read in order:
Book 1: Hardwired
Book 2: Hardpressed
Book 3: Hardline
Book 4: Hard Limit

4 Love Wins All Stars

Hard Love is the concluding story to the Hacker series.

I love this series. I read the first books back to back. I love it so much I even bought the audio version (because it’s the BEST form of re-reading). I love it so much I got the paperback copies, on top of my kindle copies on top of my ARC copies. Oh but wait, I love it SO much, I even got my paperback copies signed.

Not only Meredith is talented and writes a good series, BUT she’s very generous and SUPER SWEET. I LOVE

I’ve read all of the books in the Hacker series--some of them more than once, so I was waiting with baited breath for Hard Love. I was so excited to see what happened to Blake and Erika after the trauma of her getting shot...

Hard Love picks up on their honeymoon, but in true Meredith Wild fashion, there is mystery, suspense and some HARD LOVE going on. We are taken down a winding road filled with folks from their past, which culminates in an attempt to bring Blake down one more time.

Hard Love was the absolute perfect conclusion to Meredith Wild’s captivating and utterly phenomenal Hacker Series. I couldn’t have asked for a better ending book for Blake and Erica and their breathtakingly emotional love story. This series is one of my all-time favorites, and what Meredith Wild gave me in each of these books, but especially in Hard Love, left me in true literary awe. As I sit here writing this review, I still can’t believe that Blake and Erica’s story is really over, but what I ...more

It's always hard to say goodbye to characters that have taken you through such an incredible journey. Hard Love by Meredith Wild is the fifth and last book in our beloved Hacker Series. It takes us through the love story of Blake and Erica, two souls that strive to be together against all odds. There were so many moments of clarity for me within this book. Pieces that finally clicked in the master puzzle. Also, the author gave our newlyweds a future to look forward to, even knowing it wasn't ...more

For the last two years I have watched Blake and Erica's relationship evolve into something phenomenal. The Hacker Series will always be a favorite of mine.

When we first began Erica and Blake's relationship they were both determined to stay in control of their lives. Over time we have seen them triumph at every obstacle thrown their way. You saw two people come together and become a united front. In Hard Love everything they have accomplished will be tested. But what would love be without the

I was given this ARC for an honest review.....I just finished reading this amazing conclusion to the Hacker Series. Over the last two years we have followed Erica and Blake through their tumultuous and all-consuming love affair. Each with their skeletons and baggage, Erica wearing hers on her sleeve and Blake hiding his behind his arrogant, controlling façade. They met their match, bringing out in each other what they lacked. Erica has become a much stronger personality, willing to defy Blake to ...more

This book had me on a rollercoaster of emotions in every chapter. I mean what can I say without giving it away but WOW . But I will say that I was very happy how things turned out.

I am an emotional wreck right now... in the most crazy, beautiful sense of the word.

It was a treat to start the book off meeting with Professor Quinlan, to have him back in Erica's life.

I love the shifting POV. It makes sense to introduce Blake's POV slowly, as this started out Erica's story and has morphed into their shared journey.

All of the relationships between characters are explored and resolved in this final chapter of the Hacker series.

I am deeply and completely satisfied with how

I feel like I've been waiting for this book forever, and it still amazes me that it has only been two years since Hardwired was released. Meredith does not disapointed with this amazing conclusion to the Hacker Series!
Blake and Erika have had a difficult journey in the short time they've been together. With everything they've gone thru, one constant has remained - their love. Watching them navigate thru their final trials was nothing short of amazing.

Ours was a hard love. We’d fallen hard into it, and we’d fought hard to keep it. Our kind of love didn’t ask nicely. It took. It ravaged. It consumed the heart whole and asked questions later. The rewards were soul-deep and all-consuming, sweeping through like a wildfire.

Days after their nuptials, Blake and Erica Landon embark on their honeymoon—a journey that deepens their bonds and promises to fade the scars of their past.
Just when
It took me a few days to let this book sink in. The fact that it is the last of the series made me want to take my time. But who am I kidding? I devoured the book in one day because I needed that Blake/Erica fix.

In Hard Love we find Blake/Erica's relationship taken to the next now there is smooth sailing right? HA sure....These two definitely get tested once again on their love/trust for each other. Events from the previous books are carried over and all the questions are answered.

What a perfect ending to this series! I have fallen in love with Blake and Erica all over again. Everything seems to come together so perfectly. Blake is still the hot alpha male who needs control, but is willing to give a little for the woman that he loves. However, he will could have to pay the ultimate price for their love. Erica is a strong woman, who won't stop at any cost to take care of the man that she loves. Even if it means make a deal that could cost her everything. So many things ...more

First, I received an ARC of Hard Love for an honest review of the book.

And honestly...It was AMAZING!
Meredith gave us a very well written, thrilling, sexy page turner in Hard Love.
The first four books took us through Erica Hathaway and Blake Landon's first meeting,first unbridled encounter and the life the started with each. You got to know them, you got sucked into their ups and downs. You were left shocked and awed. You were blushing and dropping your jaw when you were let into their bedroom

Having said that please believe me when I tell you that it is an amazing ending to an amazing series!! Blake and Erica went through so much to be together. The twists and turns in this series as a whole is what makes it so awesome. Meredith Wild is a great author and I can't wait to see what she has in store for her fans.

Meredith has written a wonderful book to conclude this fantastic series. This book starts with Blake and Erica on their honeymoon where their love only continues to grow. And it ends with tying up the story lines of those most prominent to the Hacker Series.

From the first book, Hardwired, to this last one, we see a progression of how Blake loves. This book shows how Blake finally sees how he's changed and how because of Erica, he loves with all his heart, body, mind and soul. A previous

I have loved this series from the beginning and was sad to see it come to an end. But what a fantastic ending to a great story!!

If you’re a fan and have read the previous books, you know that Blake and Erica have been put through the wringer but have managed to come out on top. But there are a few more obstacles for them to overcome in Hard Love. Blake is as controlling and domineering as always when it comes to Erica but his love for her is powerful. And Erica is still fiercely strong,

I've said it before but I'll say it again. I think this series is one of the MOST under appreciated series out there. I can't believe that more people haven't read it. It is one of my all time favorite series. So if you haven't given The Hacker series a try, do it now!

This is the conclusion of Blake and Erica's story, told in dual povs.

From the moment I picked up this book, I could not put it down. I devoured it in one sitting. Blake and Erica's story drew me in and refused to let go, once again. This was such a bittersweet situation since this is the conclusion of Blake and Erica's story. I wasn't ready for this love affair to end.

Hard Love is suspenseful, sensual and spectacular. The combustible sexual chemistry left me in need of an ice bath and some oxygen, while the emotional twists and turns ruined my manicure. Not that

Hard Love is the final addition to the Hacker series. It's been a long journey for Erica and Blake but one that was well worth it. Picking up right where book 4 left off, Blake and Erica are embarking on a new journey together as a married couple. While they know that life is moving on while they are on their month long honeymoon abroad, they are taking the time to reconnect and really be together. But as soon as they get home, life takes a turn they aren't expecting and

Meredith has blown my mind with the steamy, wonderful ending to an amazing series.
Blake & Erica just had the most beautiful wedding a girl could ever dream of and now they're off to a perfect honeymoon. Once they returned from the honeymoon, their home life would throw them a serious curve ball. Blake's hacker past was showing up with a vengeance and not showing any sign of letting up.

* It's really hard to write this review without giving away some spoilers from books 1 - 4. If you haven't read them yet, I'm going to ask you to stop reading here, jump down to the bottom and enter the AH-MAZING giveaways, and then go buy the first four books. I can tell you the series ends really well. :)

I knew following the super dramatic and emotional end of Hard Limit (Hacker #4) that Hard Love would be a roller coaster ride of emotions. I had no idea how wild of a ride it would be,
