Review: Hard to Serve (Hard Ink #4.7) by Laura Kaye

Have I mentioned how much I love Laura Kaye before? If not, let me just say it now, she is one heck of a story teller and is not to be missed. I loved Hard to Serve!


Hard to Serve

Hard to Serve (Hard Ink #4.7) by Laura Kaye 


To protect and serve is all Detective Kyler Vance ever wanted to do, so when Internal Affairs investigates him as part of the new police commissioner’s bid to oust corruption, everything is on the line. Which makes meeting a smart, gorgeous submissive at an exclusive play club the perfect distraction…

The director of the city’s hottest art gallery, Mia Breslin’s career is golden. Now if only she could find a man to dominate her nights and set her body—and her heart—on fire. When a scorching scene with a hard-bodied, brooding Dom at Blasphemy promises just that, Mia is lured to serve Kyler again and again.

As their relationship burns hotter, Kyler runs into Mia at work and learns that he’s been dominating the daughter of the hard-ass boss who has it in for him. Now Kyler must choose between life-long duty and forbidden desire before Mia finds another who’s not so hard to serve.


5 out of 5 stars


Seriously sizzling hot, awesome story! This was fantastic!


Kyler and Mia were perfect for each other. I've been curious about Kyler since the Hard Ink series so I was thrilled to get to know him more. So strong. So dominant. I love the power he exudes even under stressful circumstances. Mia was great too. A bit fun, totally curious and open. They had magnetic chemistry. Loved the development of their relationship and the openness and trust when it came to their lifestyle. They had a great connection and I found their relationship fascinating. There was a bit of conflict but I love how it all played out.


Laura Kaye is such a great writer, she has this way of pulling me into a story and making me fall in love with all the characters. Even though this was a novella, it didn't feel short to me, it's very much a full, well developed story with an excellent mix of fun, emotion, conflict, and a whole heck of a lot of hot kink. I mean really, wow! It jumps right into the story but it never felt fast paced or hurried. It was laid out great.


Being a huge fan of the Hard Ink series I was thrilled that the guys from the Special Forces team were included. That made me super happy. I truly love the world that the author created, so much much depth and detail. It really is awesome.


I thought this was a fantastic introduction to a new series. Blasphemy and all the Masters intrigue me, making me want more and to know their stories and to delve deeper into their world. This is definitely a hot, entertaining read with just the right mix of emotion. It was everything I could have asked for and then some. :-)
