Hard As You Can
Avon / February 25, 2014 / $5.99 print, $4.99 digital
Ever since hard-bodied, drop-dead-charming Shane McCallan strolled into the dance club where Crystal Dean works, he's shown a knack for getting beneath her defenses. For her little sister's sake, Crystal can't get too close. Until her job and Shane's mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed.
Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation. Nor can he walk away from Crystal. The gorgeous waitress is hiding secrets she doesn't want him to uncover. Too bad. He's exactly the man she needs to protect her sister, her life, and her heart. All he has to do is convince her that when something feels this good, you hold on as hard as you can—and never let go.
Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink series is my new obsession. I was lucky enough to be at an event a few months ago where she did a reading and from that night on I was totally hooked. I bought the first book, Hard As It Gets, that night, and fell head over heels in lust with the hardened men of Hard Ink. Book 2 in the series, Hard As You Can, leaves me with no regrets about the series, and totally hooked to this fast-paced, sexy read.
