Hard to Hold On To: A Hard Ink Novella | [Laura Kaye]

Hard to Hold On To: A Hard Ink Novella

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 stretch far beyond gratitude.

Publisher's Summary

Five dishonored soldiers.

Former Special Forces.

One last mission.

These are the men of Hard Ink.

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 stretch far beyond gratitude.

When the pair is thrust together and chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: The things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

    "Easy Listening"
    What made the experience of listening to Hard to Hold On To the most enjoyable?

    Hard to Hold On To was a great listen all around. I enjoyed the story and the narration brought the characters to life. Seraphine differentiates between the voices of the characters extremely well, so I don't have to rewind every few minutes to figure out who's talking. Despite the brevity of the book (wish it had been full length instead of a novella!), the characters were well developed, and I liked that there wasn't insta-love between the leads. There was strong attraction, a bond, but the L-word wasn't tossed out after 35 minutes of knowing each other.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely Easy. He was very easy to empathize with, he was well performed by the narrator, and I found myself very invested in the outcome of his story.


    Which character – as performed by Seraphine Valentine – was your favorite?

    It's a toss up for me between Jeremy and Marz. She brings so much personality to her performance of them, and I really enjoy whenever they come into the story. Too bad they were only in HtHOT for a few scenes!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh a bit, and I was very choked up during some of Easy's scenes, especially the one he shared with Shane.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book in the series! I enjoyed this novella quite a bit, but I find I'm just as excited to get to the bottom of the mystery of the series as I am to get to know the rest of the guys better.

    Story
    "Narrator ruined it for me"

    It's been a while since the last Hard Ink book was released in audio format, so I was a bit lost in the beginning of this story. I had a hard time remembering the details of what went before. Probably should have re-read the last book before I started this one.

    Anyway, then we're told it's only been a week since Sara and Shane met. The story just didn't seem to flow very well. The writing is very uneven. Grammar and sentence structure were awful.

    Combine the bad writing with the terrible narration by Seraphine Valentine and it makes you want to scream. Her voice and inflection are just all wrong. It was just a very painful experience to listen to this story.

    It seems like there are fewer and fewer good narrators these days. And it's hard to tell by the audio samples provided sometimes. I hope the audiobook industry does a better job comes up with some better narrators soon.
