Publisher's Summary

Five dishonored soldiers. Former Special Forces. One last mission. These are the men of Hard Ink.
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.

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.

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.
