Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves--which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago.
Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he makes her feel--and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.
As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.
Reviewed by Lynn:
Edward “Easy” Cantrell is a protector to Jenna Dean when she needs one the most. He has an interesting tattoo and if you want to know what it is you’ll just have to get this book and find out. Jenna’s a little different from some characters that you may have read before. They seem to have a way of toning the stress down for each other. It’s also a story of older man and younger woman.
This author shows that even men and women can have a comfortable comradery with each other. And you wouldn’t believe that this is a novella because the author doesn’t short-change her readers in any way. This is a great read for those romantics that like military, tattoo, or multicultural (MC) reads – or if you are just someone that loves a hero. I felt that the story had an “Happy for Now” (HFN) ending because only you can decide if it’s “Happily Ever After” (HEA). But I also hope to see them again.
You could read this as a stand-alone but why would you. This is a great series and if you’re a fan of Laura’s you will want to read all about Hard Ink. Also, please make sure to read the Author’s Note and the Acknowledgements that follow the story. I have found that I can usually learn something and by reading until the end you can also sometimes find that there will be another book in the series. In this case, Hard To Come By will be coming out by the end of November.
