Hard to Let Go (Hard Ink #4) by Laura Kaye.

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.

Anita (anitanodiva) | 607 comments I've got to finish up my current book, then I'm reading Hard to Let Go. I am looking forward to Kat's and Beckett's story and getting more clues as to who set this whole thing up.

(view spoiler)


Lara | 2335 comments I started reading tonight but got distracted by some family business. I'll try to get more in tomorrow, but we're going to my mother's to watch election coverage. So, my reading may be limited.

I'm just in chapter 2 and am concerned about a recurring theme of willingly breaking confidentiality oaths and rules. It's funny but I am less concerned with the way the crew is taking the law into their own hands than I am with their willingness to share information they've sworn not to.


Anita (anitanodiva) | 607 comments I haven't started yet, but I see no reason these guys should consider themselves bound by any confidentiality agreement they signed. They were set up, framed and railroaded. The agreement they signed wasn't to protect them. It protected the baddies who did this to them.

It's not just the team themselves. It's also the people around them. You'll know what Lara is talking about when you start reading.

I know! I hate it when the heroines say that!

I was going to read today, then my grandson took a header and got a small cut on the top of his head. We had Grammy and Nathan time, went out to lunch and to the beach. I told him his mom would kill me if he got his head wet - he didn't. Only got to chapter 2.

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I hope it's too painful for him. Do you have him everyday?


Anita (anitanodiva) | 607 comments He has a very hard head and the cut wasn't deep, just bled a lot. I only get him when school is out early, teacher free days and when he stays home from school.

Lara | 2335 comments I'm just starting chapter 9. Work and life have taken over this month and I've managed a fraction of the reading I'm used to. Tonight I rested due to having a migraine all day, then had to complete some work before getting to read.

I wish this book were more exciting and less cliched. I'm not thrilled with Kat's situation (view spoiler) as a plot element. So, that doesn't help me get into the story either.

ShoSho, I'm holding off reading your end-of-book spoiler until I'm done. So far I don't think it's one of the better books in the series either.

Yes don't read until you're done. There are real spoilers in it.
I hope you like it more than I did.


Anita (anitanodiva) | 607 comments I'm on chapter 15 and I agree, not a great book. Please tell me that everything gets wrapped up. I don't think I can read another one.

Phoenix (Online Elf) | 4358 comments Are you ladies going to read Hard as Steel (Hard Ink, #4.5) by Laura Kaye in December?


Anita (anitanodiva) | 607 comments NO! I'll only read another Laura Kaye book if there is absolutely nothing else to read.


message 27: by ShoSho , Moderator (new) - rated it 2 stars

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments No I think we're going to read Hard Ever After (Hard Ink, #4.6) by Laura Kaye . That'd be our last book from the series!


Anita (anitanodiva) | 607 comments After reading the blurbs for the last novellas, I don't see that they add to this series at all. The plot arc was wrapped in Hard to Let Go and I'm done.

Anita (anitanodiva) | 607 comments I hope it turns out to be a great book. I know how anal I can be when it comes to finishing something.


message 31: by Lara (new) - rated it 2 stars

Lara | 2335 comments I just finished and agree that I was underwhelmed. Things are wrapped up in this book, but there was a lot of coincidences.

ShoSho, I agree with you 100% about the Cole situation. When it happened I wondered what the heck was going on. It was ridiculous.

Plus, I thought that (view spoiler) was gratuitous. Perhaps it partially served to get Beckett to admit his feelings, but I also felt it was unnecessary to go so far. (view spoiler)
