Hard To Come By (Hard Ink #3)
Hard to Come By - Laura Kaye

This story was a direct continuation of the series, so if you haven't read the other books in the series, you really shouldn't read this one until you do so. The characterization is great and I was easily able to connect with Derek and Emelie. It recaps with each of the other couples and sets up for the last two couples of the series. It is quite action packed, but doesn't feel forced or fake. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Hard to Come By - Laura Kaye

Exciting action in this romantic suspense and an endearing disabled hero but this series needs to be read in order. This plot is only a portion of a bigger operation and the first half of the book was spent explaining everything. Derek spends time with psychologist Emilie while his team searches for her brother.

Hard to Come By (Laura Kaye)
Hard to Come By - Laura Kaye
3.5 stars

On the minus side -- the way that the romance happened so fast (as with the previous 2.5 books) still drove me nuts. I understand that these men were in under pressure and tight deadline, as the threat to their life and their loved ones has escalated, however my mind just couldn't wrap the 'instant' love situation. All of these relationship happened within days (one week was the longest); it just too fast for my personal liking.

In addition, I disliked the different 'personality' of Marz in the bedroom. The whole dirty talk just didn't fit him. At all. I cringed everytime I read it.

On the plus side -- I could definitely say that this might be my favorite of the series yet. I LOVED Marz from day 1. I loved his playfulness and his optimistic stance despite having his leg amputated after the clusterfuck that happened in Afghanistan. The rest of the guys were broody silent Alpha type but not Marz. From the get go, Marz (and Jeremy) were the ones that made everything seemed brighter. They could made others smile easily with sunny dispositions (and in Jeremy's case, with his weird t-shirt as well). So I loved Marz as an individual. He might lost his leg, he might had not quite of perfect childhood, but that never stop Marz to be positive.

I also liked Emilie (not as much as I loved Marz though). Sure, she quickly trusted Marz and his brothers-in-arms compared to her own brother; however, Manny Garza did change from the loving brother than Emilie knew as a child. I guess, in that sense, Emilie trust her head more so than illogical loyalty. I also thought Emilie held her own just fine; proven when she was 'taken' by that dirty cop and she was able to think smartly on how to keep Marz in line and then fight back when necessary.

Outside of the relationship, this story hit my emotional side when it finally resulted in human casualties, as one of their friends who have been there from the start (from Nick's book) ended up dead along with a couple of other acquaintances. Hard Ink suffered from physical attack, and it was quite loss for Nick and Jeremy.

AND, there was a HUGE twist in the end of this book that I totally didn't see coming. It changed everything and these men had to plan their next strategy with a completely different knowledge. It could make the final book very interesting.

I definitely will be there for book 3.5 (Jeremy and Charlie!!) and book #4 (final book!).

Hard to Come 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...
