Hard To Hold On To (Hard Ink #2.5) by Laura Kaye

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.

4.5 out of 5 stars

The was an emotional addition to the Hard Ink series and I loved it! Easy is an intense, tormented character and his story was sad and heartbreaking but full of hope at the same time. A really great read!

I really liked Easy a lot, he was so protective and caring. He would do anything for his friends even though he's suffering with his own demons. I liked Jenna too, I have such an appreciation for these strong women characters that Laura Kaye writes. Jenna had been through such an horrible experience and I thought it was so sweet how her and Easy sought comfort in one another. They had a connection and chemistry, I really enjoyed watching it grow.

I loved that a bit more information was learned in the overall story that is spanning the series. The suspense element is awesome! The author does a great job of catching you up to speed if you haven't read the other books. I loved seeing all the guys again from the Special Forces unit that have been in previous stories (and stories to come), they are such interesting characters and I love their comradery. This story had a more series tone throughout because of Easy's issues so it was nice to see how compassionate all the guys are, how they are family even though they aren't blood. When Easy opens up to his friends, oh man, I might have lost it… heart wrenching.

Fantastic story, it definitely added to the overall series and it's not to be missed. This was an emotional read dealing with a serious issue with very real and engaging characters. There was a good build to Easy sharing with his buddies but other than that, there was no major drama, just the two characters coping with their pasts.
