Hard to Let Go by Laura Kaye is Now Available & Reviewed

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 his biggest complication yet—a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey.

A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo shop 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 the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights . . . and in 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.

Taking a deep breath, Beckett knocked on the door.

No answer.

He turned the knob, and the door opened.

“Go away,” came a strained voice.

Beckett poked his head through the opening. Kat sat in a ball in the corner, her legs pulled up to her chest, her arms hugging herself tight.

“Aw, Jesus, Beckett. Really?” Her face was splotchy and her eyes watery, though he didn’t see any tears.

Ten-to-one she was going through some adrenaline letdown right now, too. Which no doubt made it all worse. That shit could fuck you up even when you were used to how it left you feeling drained and shaky, by how all the stress you’d suppressed during the height of the crisis boomeranged twice over after the fact.

He came into the room, closed the door, and turned the lock for good measure. And then he crossed to Kat, scooped his arms under her knees and behind her back and lifted her up against him.

She smacked his chest. “Put me down.”

“No.” He moved to the edge of the bed.

“I don’t need this right now, Beckett. Put me down.”

“Yes, you do,” he said, sitting on the edge of the mattress. He pulled her face in against his throat and smoothed her hair back from her cheek. She trembled against him, just the littlest bit, her skin hot to the touch. He pressed a kiss to her forehead and hugged her tighter. “You did good, kid.”

Every one of her muscles went tight. Her hand fisted in his shirt. And her breath caught as she buried her face against his neck and shoulder.

Then Kat burst out crying.

And it was like being torn apart and put back together, all at once. He hated her pain, but he adored that she wasn’t hiding herself from him, and that she was letting him be there for her.

He didn’t shush her, or try to talk her down, or encourage her to dry her eyes. To be sure, her tears were like daggers in his heart—they hurt like fucking hell. But the only way she was going to feel better was to let this shit out. Ironic realization for him—he did actually see that. But just because you could see what was good for others didn’t mean you had the first goddamned idea how to apply those principles in your own life. And that was a problem for another time anyway.

What mattered right now was Kat. What mattered … was Kat.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Fantastic read! Beckett and Kat just work. Their relationship and the continuation of this series is just inspiring. I loved it, didn't want to put it down. Beckett had a lot of emotional issue build up. Kat had a stalker/crappy ex which she had to take out a restraining order on him. This is the series finale which I don't want to spoil for anyone. I cried my butt off in the end! Five stars for this series!

Hard to Let Go is the final installment in this series. It can be read as a standalone but it's much better if you read all books within the series.

Hard to Let Go brings together all the things that you've wanted to know throughout the series. It's emotional and fast paced. This one is definitely the most action filled, which I loved. My heart breaks for Beckett and his past. He's afraid to love, afraid he'll lose what matters most. When Kat and Beckett ignite things between them a budding romance evolves. One of the problems being Kat's ex who happens to be at the middle of their investigation.

Hard to Let Go is a fast-paced action romance emotional roller coaster. I loved every minute of it. I couldn't wait for the end to find out who was behind it all. The ending was a perfect fit for this series. It was definitely a character driven read. You are sucked in to the story and the ride is amazing. I can't wait for the spin off series, Raven Riders MC.

This has been a fabulous series and I am going to miss these guys – of course the joy of books is that I can just start reading them all over again! You definitely need to read them in order, and as the story unfolds, you will realise just what a great job Ms. Kaye has done in building an amazing plot and keeping the reader engaged in the big issues as well as the wonderful romances.

I was ready for Beckett's story, and it was well worth the wait. Kat was his perfect foil and together they were explosive, hot and just plain adorable. The level of intrigue and danger is high, but never too much, which was a relief. I was so engaged that I read it straight through and missed most of a night's sleep – so maybe plan your time better than I did!
