You Are Invited…

To the Wedding of the Year

Justice served. Honor restored. Team reunited.

After a long battle to discover the truth, the men and women of Hard Ink have a lot to celebrate, especially the wedding of two of their own—Nick Rixey and Becca Merritt, whose hard-fought love deserves a happy ending.

As Nick and the team shift from crisis mode to building their new security consulting firm, Becca heads back to work at the ER. But amid the everyday chaos of demanding jobs and their upcoming nuptials, an old menace they thought long gone reemerges, threatening the peace they’ve only just found.

Now, for one last time, Nick and Becca must fight for their always and forever, because they know that when true love overcomes all the odds it lasts hard ever after.

my thoughts

A lovely, charming, sexy, and humorous addition to an all-around great series! The Hard Ink crew start to rebuild their lives after such tragedy. Nick, Becca, and the gang have been through so much together, and this happy occasion couldn’t come at a better time. They need happiness after such devastation. They start to forge a new path together with the future looking bright as ever. You won’t know how much you’ve missed these characters until you read HARD EVER AFTER. This is the icing on the cake, the cherry on top of the sundae, an ice-cold lemonade on a hot summer day. It’s what us hardcore HARD INK fans needed – this contentment, this solace, this satisfaction that everything with these characters will be okay.

Although, it’s not all happiness and rainbows. It wouldn’t be a HARD INK book if it didn’t have some suspense in it. The suspense comes in the form of the past not staying where it’s supposed to. An enemy with some unfinished business lies in waiting, but in true Laura Kaye fashion, she gives us a happily ever after that we will never forget. I absolutely ADORE these characters and I can only hope that this isn’t the last we read about them. Get ready to SWOON! Get ready to LAUGH! Get ready for your heart to skip a beat. Laura Kaye has once again, made my heart full with her amazing love stories.

excerpt[scroll-box]Hard Ever After Excerpt, Dress Shop Scene

“I think we’re all pretty guaranteed to get laid at Becca’s wedding,” Kat said with a mischievous grin.

They all burst into laughter. “When do you not get laid, Kat?” Emilie asked with an arched eyebrow.

“Aw, don’t even talk to me, Miss Garza, because you and Marz are loud as hell. Not that I mind, because, dude, does he have a mouth on him,” Kat said with a big grin.

“Oh, my God,” Sara said, her cheeks turning bright pink but her smile saying she was enjoying the teasing.

“He really does.” Grinning, Emilie shrugged. “The hazards of sharing an unfinished apartment. Can’t be helped.” Kat and Beckett had been staying in the room Nick and Jeremy reserved for her in their apartment until one particularly loud session of lovemaking had apparently caught Jer’s ear. His teasing had been relentless. Finally, Kat and Beckett relocated to an empty room upstairs. As much as they all enjoyed each other’s company, everyone was going to be thrilled when the new building was done, that was for sure.

Becca could only laugh as the good-natured ribbing went on. “Well, I know I’m getting laid. The rest of you are on your own.” By the time they’d all been fitted and had paid for their gowns, Becca was pretty sure they were on the verge of getting thrown out of the store.

They spilled out onto the street, laughing and hungry for lunch. Becca fell behind while she fished for her cell phone in her purse and paused to shoot off a quick text to Nick.

All done dress shopping! I’m gonna knock your socks off! 😉

Nick responded immediately. Sunshine, you already do.

Grinning, she glanced down the block—and nearly gasped out loud. Tyrell Woodson, the man who’d attempted to abduct her months ago, stood at the corner, glaring at her.

“Hey, Becca, come on,” Kat called.

Becca blinked and the man was gone. Vanished. A figment of her imagination. Not that her body seemed to know the difference. Heart racing, she caught up with the group as they made their way to an Italian place they’d agreed on earlier.

“You okay?” Kat asked.

“Yeah. Great.” Her voice sounded flat to her own ears. She glanced back over her shoulder. Woodson wasn’t there. Of course he wasn’t. She let out a long breath. Clearly, her subconscious wasn’t done worrying about Woodson, though, however unnecessary—and unfounded—that worrying was.
