Hard as You Can

Hard as You Can - Laura Kaye Sometimes you live in hell for the ones you love, both Shane and Crystal are living in their own versions of hell and together they can learn to live again.

I really loved this story, I enjoyed the first book but I definitely loved Shane and Crystal way more. Shane has a lot of guilt on his shoulders and is willing and ready to help Crystal even more so when he starts to fall for her and her inner strength.

Crystal is a very strong heroine and one I really liked. Yes, she’s allowing herself to be in a bad relationship but she’ll do anything and everything for her younger sister. I loved that even though Crystal has lost a big chunk of her identity she is willing to open herself up to love and the possibility of a future with Shane.

Full of action, suspense and a continuing story arc from the first book, this is a great addition to what I can easily see becoming a favorite new series of mine. I look forward to the rest of the crew finding love and solving the mystery that brought them all back together. Ms. Kaye is doing a beautiful job of building up the suspense and I look forward to the completion of that story arc.

I highly recommend this book and while I think a reader can enjoy this story as a standalone I recommend reading the first one since it sets up the story very well.
