To protect and serve is all Detective Kyler Vance ever wanted to do, so when Internal Affairs investigates him as part of the new police commissioner’s bid to oust corruption, everything is on the line. Which makes meeting a smart, gorgeous submissive at an exclusive play club the perfect distraction…

The director of the city’s hottest art gallery, Mia Breslin’s career is golden. Now if only she could find a man to dominate her nights and set her body—and her heart—on fire. When a scorching scene with a hard-bodied, brooding Dom at Blasphemy promises just that, Mia is lured to serve Kyler again and again.

Then, as their relationship burns hotter, Kyler learns that he’s been dominating the daughter of the hard-ass boss who has it in for him. Now Kyler must choose between life-long duty and forbidden desire before Mia finds another who’s not so hard to serve.

my thoughts

O-M-G! I just finished this last night and I was just SO freaking giddy afterwards. I even sent a message to Laura telling her how AMAZING it was and how it was EASILY one of my favorites of hers. If you haven’t read anything by Laura Kaye yet….MY GOD…buy this baby now! It will turn you into a Laura Kaye stalker FOR SURE!!!

I pretty much had butterflies in my stomach the whole time I was reading this. Sexy, sweet, intense, passionate, sensual, erotic as HELL!

“Feel how you take me,” Kyler gritted out, his mouth still against her ear, his hands and body still pinning her to the wall. Withdraw and thrust. Withdraw and thrust. “Take me, Mia.”

Kyler Vance and Mia Breslin were EXPLOSIVE together, in AND out of the scene. Vance sent shivers down my spine with his demands and his dirty talk, and Mia took his dominance like the sweet submissive that she craved to be. EVERYTHING was perfect, until it wasn’t. Suddenly their connection became forbidden. When Vance finds out that Mia’s father is his boss who has it in for him, everything comes to a stop. He can tell himself that he can stay away from Mia. He can make excuses after excuses, but the heart doesn’t lie. But how could he do that to Mia. She already lives in fear because her father in on the force…what would happen if she had to worry about Vance as well? He doesn’t want to break her, and he doesn’t want to break away from her. How do you choose between an oath you took to serve and protect, and an unyielding passion that drives you to your knees?

EVERYTHING about this book was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! It was something different, something more intense and passionate from Laura Kaye that I haven’t seen yet. Since HARD TO SERVE is a Hard Ink Novella, the whole team is reunited once again and that just put a HUGE smile on my face! HARD TO SERVE also gives us a great introduction to Kaye’s upcoming new erotic romance series, BLASPHEMY, coming this September! I don’t remember a time when I was this excited about a new upcoming series. HARD TO SERVE set the bar pretty high for Ms. Kaye, and I can’t wait to see what kind of brilliance she gives us next!

quoteMia found herself alone with a kinda pissed-off looking Master Kyler. He wore angry well. As in, the harshness of the set of his jaw and the tight press of his lips and the narrow cut of his eyes—they were all hot, especially coming from a Dom. But she didn’t understand it.


“Um. Hello, Sir,” she finally said when he didn’t say anything.


“Mia,” he said, his gaze raking over her. “You look absolutely stunning tonight.” His voice was like gravel, rough and strained.


“Thank you. Are you okay, Sir?” she asked.


He shook his head. “I don’t…I don’t know.”


“Do you want to sit and talk?” Mia asked, concern for him flooding her.


Suddenly, Kyler pinned her to the cool wall. He braced his hands on either side of her head, and he was erect against her belly. She wanted to drop into a crouch and take him into her mouth. “Do you want vulgar honesty or watered-down politeness?” he asked.


The promise of those words made her core clench with need. “Vulgar honesty.”


He nailed her with a blue-eyed stare. “I don’t want to sit and talk. I want to fuck. Hard. I want to be aggressive. Maybe I even want to be a little mean.”


Mia’s heart was suddenly a runaway train in her chest. Because, sign her up! She let out a shaky breath. “That sounds…like someone’s going to have a good night,” she managed.


Kyler dropped his head to her shoulder on a groan. He knocked his forehead against the bone there once, twice.


“Did I say the wrong thing?” she asked. Because he was totally confusing her.


“That’s the thing, Mia. I don’t know.” He lifted his gaze to hers again.


“How can I help?” she asked.


For a moment, he closed his eyes and inhaled deeply, and when he opened them, it was like he’d centered himself and made some kind of resolution. “Are you game for what I just described?” He fingered the chunky silver-and-gold choker she wore around her neck.


Heat swept over her, her body already answering, already preparing. “Yes, Sir. I am.”


He gave a tight nod and backed up a step. “Let me show you the room I have in mind.” Taking her hand, he led her down the long hallway that shot off the side of the nave. She wasn’t sure if this was still part of the church building or something else, but she didn’t have long to wonder before Kyler stopped at a door and keyed in a code.


Lights came on as the door opened, and Kyler guided her inside with his hand at the small of her back.


Just the room’s theme turned Mia on. Concrete floor. Cinder-block walls with peeling paint. Light thrown from bare light bulbs surrounded by little cages. An iron cot bed with only a white fitted sheet. Rusted metal cabinet at the side that undoubtedly held a variety of toys and supplies. It looked like a basement or a warehouse—a place where a woman in a beautiful cocktail dress had no business being. A role started taking shape in her mind.


“Do you see where my head is tonight, Mia?” Master Kyler asked, his body almost rigid with tension.


God, she was going to enjoy helping him work out whatever had him so wound up. “Yes, Sir.”
