After identifying her employer's dangerous enemies, Jessica Jakes takes refuge at the compound of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. Fellow Hard Ink tattooist and Raven leader Ike Young promises to keep Jess safe for as long as it takes, which would be perfect if his close, personal, round-the-clock protection didn't make it so hard to hide just how much she wants him—and always has.
Ike Young loved and lost a woman in trouble once before. The last thing he needs is alone time with the sexiest and feistiest woman he's ever known, one he's purposely kept at a distance for years. Now, Ike's not sure he can keep his hands or his heart to himself—or that he even wants to anymore. And that means he has to do whatever it takes to hold on to Jess forever.
Oh how I’ve missed Laura Kaye’s world of sexy suspense! I was SUPER excited to see that Ike and Jess were getting their very own HEA. I was also excited to see that this was going to be a Hard Ink and Raven Riders crossover. Fans of the AMAZING Hard Ink series get to experience the intensity and the heavy connection between Ike and Jessica. It was always on a simmer, but after Jess finds herself in danger, that simmer turns boiling HOT in no time! HARD AS STEEL gives us Ike and Jess’ POV during the whole Hard Ink blow-up. We feel their anxiety and tension as they feel helpless so far away from their friends. I was excited to meet some new characters in this story. I got a real good sense of how the Raven Rider’s dynamic works and I’m delighted and eager to learn more.
Newbies of this series, get ready to become addicted. Newbies of this author, get ready to experience greatness! After you read this gem of a novella, you will have no choice but to go back and start fresh with Hard Ink. Your mind will not let you move forward until you know the entire story. You can thank me later!
