Laura Kaye can not write the Hard Ink Novels fast enough. I might give a small organ to get ahold of all of them at once instead of waiting patiently! I have been reading a lot of book series lately and this is one of the best I have read. Not only are the characters well developed but the underlying storyline is well thought out and moves along at just the right pace that leaves you wanting more. You never get all the answers in one book so you are dying to read the next.
Hard as You Can is the second in the series and it follows Shane McCallan and Crystal Dean. Shane is nothing short of hot with his southern drawl and chiseled body. Shane first runs into Crystal during Book #1 Hard as You Get and he can't seem to forget her.
Crystal Dean is working off her father's debt to some unsavory characters. If losing her father wasn't bad enough, she is forced into working for these low lives to shelter her sister. Crystal has suffered more than anyone should bear but she is willing to do it for the ones she loves the most.
When Crystal helps Shane and his team, he takes notices and quickly sees that she needs help. Shane has a thing for a woman that need rescuing. Shane has his reasons, reasons from his past that he can't seem to shake. Crystal definitely needs help but can Shane and Crystal help each other and keep their distance. The closer Shame and Crystal become only puts Crystal and her sister at more risk. Shane and the Hard Ink crew continue their man hunt to uncover why their former Commander turned on them and where do Crystal and her employers fit into the puzzle.
Hard As You Can is a must read. I personally can't wait for the next in the series! All of these guys deserve a book and it will be a pleasure reading each and every one of them!
