After Dark Review of Hard to Let Go by Laura Kaye

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Read For: Because I love the series
Synopsis: "Five dishonored soldiers.
Former Special Forces.
One last mission.
These are the men of Hard Ink.

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 the biggest complication yet—seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey.

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

My Review: My first thought after finishing this book was what a perfect title because good gordy it is going to be hard to let go of these characters and this series! I have been completely in love with this series and all of the characters from the get go. I really enjoyed Kat in this one, she is smart, determined and yet fun and quirky. I was also happy to get to know the not so cold and cranky side of Beckett. I was wondering how Kaye was going to wrap up the main storyline in just one book but she did it and did it beautifully (take note other authors who keep dragging a series out for no reason). Now there are a couple of novellas to go along with this series and even one that comes after this, so it isn't like we have to quit cold turkey (thank goodness for that) but I will wean myself off the Hard Ink crew and storyline and anxiously await what Kaye comes out with next!
My Rating: I have loved every step of this series and this was a fantastic conclusion to the main storyline.  As I said there are a couple more novellas, which will give me the opportunity to wean myself off these beloved characters. I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
