Hard To Hold On To

Title: Hard To Hold On To
Author: Laura Kaye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 19, 2014


Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves—which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago. Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he makes her feel--and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude. As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

Simone's Review 
*ARC received in return for an honest review

OK!! So for those who know me,you'll know that any thing to do with Laura Kaye and her books, I am always pushing myself to the front of the queue. Hard To Hold On To is the third book in the Hard Ink Series and picks up immediately after Hard As You Can. Even though this is a continuation in the series this one can be read as a standalone, but to get the full benefit of this amazing series, I urge you to read the previous two, I mean Hot, Alpha, Special Force Team, what more can  girl ask for?

Easy, for me so far, has become my favourite team member. I'm a sucker for a damaged, alpha male who is trying to fight his inner demons. Excuse the pun but boy, Easy really hasn't got it easy! While fighting his own battle with depression and suicidal thoughts he's still struggling with the death of a friend while at war. Easy is still trying to protect and do the right thing for his team members and now Jenna.

"You will beat this fucking thing. For you. For her. For everything you could be together."

Jenna is like the missing piece of a jigsaw. That one piece that will fix Easy and make him feel whole and worthy of being loved. Jenna is also a damaged soul and is fighting her own demons. Having been kidnapped, drugged, beaten and abused, Jenna has a strong connection to Easy. He makes her feel safe and protected while bringing out other feelings, feelings Jenna cannot seem to hide from Easy or herself. I can tell you the sexual tension between these two just slowly starts to simmer to dangerously threatening to over heat as their relationship becomes more involved, neither one being able to stay away from one another.

Hard To Hold On To is one emotional, super sexy, intense read. I take my hat off to Laura Kaye with the way she portrayed Easy as a PTSD sufferer and the effects it has on his character. We still have all the Hard Ink family popping up through each book and the threat that is lurking in the background, which has brought this Special Forces team back together. I'm now desperate to read the next book, these Hard Ink Boys are dangerously addictive, the plot line is intriguing and threatening in the background. What another fabulous addition to the series.

Praise for the Hard Ink Series: 

For Hard As You Can: "TOP PICK! There is a sinister and desperate edge to this tale that will keep readers glued to their seats. Kaye has dark romantic suspense nailed!" ~ RT Book Reviews Magazine "Hard As You Can is another five star read. The characters Ms. Kaye has created are wonderfully broken and the drama is gritty, but the burgeoning romance and the tight-knitted relationship of the team leaves you with a sense of redemption. A must read series!" ~San Francisco Book Review 

For Hard As It Gets: "Edgy, sexy and full of suspense! A great read from a great new author!" ~ #1 NYT Bestselling Author J.R. Ward "Sizzling romance... The intriguing tattoo parlor and military background will appeal to fans of Suzanne Brockmann and Lindsay McKenna." ~Publishers Weekly Review "Kaye's depiction of sexual tension and her sex scenes are masterful and this will appeal to fans of Maya Banks' KGI and Julia Ann Walker's Black Knight's series." ~Booklist
