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.


My Thoughts

Okay so this is going to be a short review as I am at work. Anyway like all of Laura Kaye’s books I loved this one. This book has so much emotion in it. What Jenna went through broke my heart and I just wish people would stop hurting women. This book also had one sexy guy and what I love most about this book is everyone treats each other like family. I absolutely adore Jeremy in every book, I always wonder what shirt he is wearing at the time. I wish I knew someone like him in my life.


I love this cover as well. Now what is this story about?

Jenna was kidnapped by Sara’s ex-boyfriend and held captive in Confession strip club. She has epilepsy so being kidnapped was even more dangerous for her. Sara’s new friends went to Confessions to save her and Easy liked her the moment he met her. If you read the Hard As You Can you will read when Easy and Jenna met for the first time. Jenna is like saving grace for Easy. He has had a hard life since he got back from the army. He keeps thinking that he does not deserve to be alive. He misses his best friend so much and he thinks he does not deserve to live.

Jenna gave him the courage to talk to his friends about it and after that he told her about it. Easy is like ten years older than Jenna but yet they start falling for each other. Jenna does not trust being around anyone right now. The only place she feels safe is if she is with Easy. She does not want to be around Sara much because she is scared to talk about what happened and also she feels like she was a burden all her life. She blames herself about what happened to Sara.


Anyway this was one easy and quick read that I finished in about an hour and a half. I love this book so much and I would easily reread it all again. This book had the right emotions and steamy. I mean this book had more than enough action, suspense and like I said already a lot of emotions with steamy romance. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.




4 rating





Easy’s heart pounded in his chest. And it had absolutely nothing to do with the five miles he’d just run. Jenna needed him. Fierce protectiveness and a deep masculine satisfaction roared through him. She’d sought him out for comfort, for strength, for protection. Not only that, she was wearing his shirt. And she’d been staring at his body like she was fucking hungry. Needless to say, the past few minutes had tripped all kinds of switches in Easy’s brain where Jenna Dean was concerned. But he had to dial himself down. She was scared. And hurt. And clearly traumatized by everything that’d happened. He leaned down to look her in the eye, trying not to focus on the bruises—he didn’t want to make her feel self-conscious, and he sure as hell didn’t want to get any more enraged on her behalf than he already was. “You ever need me, for any reason, I am here for you. No questions asked. Got that?” He brushed his knuckles down her uninjured cheek. “Yes,” she said, giving him a quick nod and leaning into his touch. And damn if that didn’t make him feel ten feet tall—a notable feat for a guy who’d felt beaten down for most of the past year. He gently rubbed his hands over her arms. “What do you need right now?” – See more at: Divider_031
