Justice served. Honor restored. Team reunited.

After a long battle to discover the truth, the men and women of Hard Ink have a lot to celebrate, especially the wedding of two of their own—Nick Rixey and Becca Merritt, whose hard-fought love deserves a happy ending.
As Nick and the team shift from crisis mode to building their new security consulting firm, Becca heads back to work at the ER. But amid the everyday chaos of demanding jobs and their upcoming nuptials, an old menace they thought long gone reemerges, threatening the peace they’ve only just found.

Now, for one last time, Nick and Becca must fight for their always and forever, because they know that when true love overcomes all the odds it lasts hard ever after.

I bought Hard Ever After the day it was released, as I was majorly into the Hard Ink series, but for some strange reason never read it. Now, I’m glad I didn’t as the book appears to take place after the events in the first Raven Riders book. In this novella, Nick Rixey and Becca Merritt are finally tying the knot. However, just when they and their friends begin rebuilding their lives, an old foe returns to try to ruin the couple’s happily ever after.

I really enjoyed this novella as it tied up the last loose ends from the series. Not only does the team deal with this returning threat but I finally learned what happened to those who got injured during the final fight with the Church gang. Despite being a novella, Laura Kaye manages to pack a lot of info into it, as well as a lot of characters from the series. Even though the main plot is about Nick and Becca, all of the other couples make an appearance, and some even have their own resolutions. Though loose ends get tied up, there are still enough threads left to do another novella or to add to the Raven Riders crossovers.

Like the other books in this series, Hard Ever After is chock full of romance, action, and comedy. Reading this story, even after all of this time, reminded me why I fell in love with the series in the first place. If you are a fan of Kaye’s Hard Ink series, then you won’t want to miss this one. However, this book needs to be read in the correct order and is not something you should just pick up to check out. So much happened in the series as a whole that you wouldn’t want to miss out on one action-packed, romantic minute.
