Outstanding performance for a wonderful book

Would you listen to Hard as You Can again? Why?

This is one book that I would not only read again and again, but the performance by Serephine Valentine for this whole series is fantastic. I have even gone so far as to getting other books just because she is the narrator. Although, the story is phenominal in of itself. Laura Kaye's characters grab you at the start and you can't stop reading or listening until you know the ending.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was really the dynamics between the two Rixey brothers as well as Becca and Charlie even though he is mostly in absentia.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the scenes when Nick boxed with Becca and when Nick started to see Jeremy as not just his little brother but also as his adult equal.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I cried openly when Becca found her brothers broken guitar, and then again when Nick drew the guitar on Becca's skin.

ACTION & ROMANCE & SO SO GOOD!!

This series is fantastic so far! This second book is just as good as the first. I totally loved Shane in book one and his romance with Crystal (Sarah) was so incredibly special. The intensity and emotion in the story made me really connect with the characters. Well written, great performance, absolutely an overall 5-star listen.

I Drove Around Just to Hear More!

What did you love best about Hard as You Can?

I love how the story continues from book 1, but has its own story/romance as well. The relationship between Shane and Sarah is not cookie cutter story of Rixey's and Becca's from the first book, and I really appreciated that.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hard as You Can?

When Sarah openly shows Shane what she has been hiding from him (he was already aware of it, but she didn't know that), and he made her feel beautiful about something that had made her feel ugly and humiliated.

Which character – as performed by Seraphine Valentine – was your favorite?

Shane-definitely Shane-with that accent and attitude!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Sarah finally decided to let Shane and the team help her-having had to take care of herself and her sister alone since their father died, she had been shouldering so much, she was close to breaking. When she finally trusted enough to allow someone to help, I could actually feel some of the tension leave my shoulders.

Any additional comments?

I'm eager to continue with the series!

Good but not as good as the first book.

Any additional comments?


A well written story if not a little long. Besides a couple of steamy scenes, that were a long time coming, this story falls more into the Romantic Suspense genre, IMO. I am not saying that is a bad thing but I have realised I need my steam and less drama in my stories.

Awesome story!

Where does Hard as You Can rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This series has become one of the best series in my library.

What other book might you compare Hard as You Can to and why?

This book may be similar to Secret Maneuvers by Jessie Lane. They are both about ex military, and they both have romance, action, and suspense.

Have you listened to any of Seraphine Valentine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, Book one in this series and it is just as good as book two.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Most definitely.

Any additional comments?

I totally love this series. This book has everything you could ask for such as romance, action, and suspense. I also like that the next book in the series doesn't take long to come out. If you like awesome books then this is one. Happy reading!
