Review and Excerpt Tour: Hard To Come By (A Hard Ink Novel) by Laura Kaye

Caught between desire and loyalty…

Derek DiMarzio would do anything for the members of his disgraced Special Forces team—sacrifice his body, help a former teammate with a covert operation to restore their honor, and even go behind enemy lines. He just never expected to want the beautiful woman he found there.

When a sexy stranger asks questions about her brother, Emilie Garza is torn between loyalty to the brother she once idolized and fear of the war-changed man he's become. Derek’s easy smile and quiet strength tempt Emilie to open up, igniting the desire between them and leading Derek to crave a woman he shouldn’t trust.

As the team’s investigation reveals how powerful their enemies are, Derek and Emilie must prove where their loyalties lie before hearts are broken and lives are lost. Because love is too hard to come by to let slip away…

Praise for Hard to Come By:
"Rough sex and explosive fights power Kaye's third Hard Ink novel, a thrilling adventure that feels more like an action movie with a romantic subplot than a typical contemporary romance. New readers will head straight for Kaye's backlist after powering through this installment." ~Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"TOP PICK! If you're looking for danger, gritty action, and sizzling passion, then Kaye has just the book and the series for you." ~RT Book Reviews Magazine

My Review:  The Hard Ink Series has been one that I have thoroughly enjoyed, and Hard To Come By, the latest installment in the series, follows suit with Laura Kaye delivering yet again, another hot, action-packed, edge of your seat romantic suspense that will keep you turning the pages from beginning to end. Hard to Come by is Derek DiMarzio's story.  Better known as Marz, he one of the hotties from the delectable plethora of hot, bad-ass, special force Hard Ink guys that will keep you swooning, smiling, and fanning your face all at the same time.  Marz is the computer whiz of the bunch, and also the one who sustained the most traumatic injury in Afghanistan.  Despite all that, he has also been the one who keeps things together for the group with his his humor and wit.  As things with their investigation progress, they find themselves led to Emilie Garcia, and Marz also finds himself with more than he was anticipating.  When things take a dangerous turn, whether Emilie will chose family or love is the question that has to be answered.

I loved Marz, I mean you just can't help but love him.  Emilie is a wonderful character and I really enjoyed her.  She and Marz are perfect for each other.  The romantic aspect of the story was beautiful, and talk about hot....well, lets just say Marz will pleasantly surprise you in more than one way in that area.  Of course you get to see the other characters from the previous Hard Ink novels that we have all come to know and love.  Of all the guys in the series, Nick Rixey still has remains #1 in my heart, but I definitely did some major swooning over Marz.  

Not only does Laura Kaye deliver another great installment in the Hard Ink series, she sets the stage for future installments and leaves you excited to find out what is going to happen next.  If you are a fan of hot romance, action, suspense and just love an overall great story, then you will love Hard To Come By, as well as the whole Hard Ink Series, which I definitely would recommend.
