Review: Hard to Hold on To by Laura Kaye (Hard Ink #2.5)

Edward Cantrell wasn't able to save his best friend and teammate when their team was ambushed in Afghanistan. The guilt continues to eat away at him, consuming him in ways he's never been able to tell his other friends and teammates. But when Easy helps rescue Jenna Dean after being abducted and prepared to be sold into white slavery, he begins to find a new purpose. Jenna needs him by her side, comfortable with her rescuer in ways that he may not fully believe but he wants to hold on to her for as long as he can.

Hard to Hold on To is a novella in the Hard Ink series from author Laura Kaye and picks up right after the events in Hard as You Can. Jenna Dean has been rescued after the Hard Ink crew kills her kidnapper, who just happened to be her sister's abusive boyfriend, and she finds comfort in the arms of Easy Cantrell, one of her rescuers. She likes having him by her side while she recuperates from her injuries and the trauma of being held captive and Easy finds himself opening up to this woman who surprisingly give his life meaning.

Jenna and Easy have their own respective sets of issues that they're dealing with--Easy's stemming from his time in Afghanistan and Jenna's from her abduction--and they provide each other with strength and support to overcome said issues. This is a fairly quick read but one that allows fans of the series to get to know the quietest among the ex-Special Forces men of the Hard Ink crew as well as gives a happily-ever-after-type resolution to Easy's and Jenna's stories and deservedly so. Five stars for Hard to Hold on To. ♥
