Shelf_Life – Review & Excerpt
I absolutely loved this novella… it was sweet and romantic but also filled with so much emotion and suspense. Now I did not expect this when I finished with this series. I mean the series ended with a happy ever after but I always wonder how their story continued so these little novellas is what I live and breathe for. I absolutely loved this little novella and I would easily reread this book.
Now this book is all about Nick and Becca. The fight they had so far is officially over and Becca is going back to work. Little did she know that she might have gotten some PTSD after being attacked at the hospital. Nobody knew that she had PTSD until later. She was doing okay back at her job but she thought she kept seeing the guy who attacked her. Nick did not want to live another day not being married to Becca so he decided to make them both a happy by asking her to marry him. He asked her to marry him in the best way possible. He asked her in his unique style.
Only, always, forever is what they keep saying to each other it means everything to them and I just love their relationship like this. Their relationship is what I aspire to because between hard and tough times they still ended up together and they just gotten stronger by the second. Now this is just a perfect addition to this series with a perfect balance between romance and sweetness and also got some danger as expected by the Hard Ink series. Even though Hard to Let Go ended with a happy ever after, Nick and Becca still had to fight for their happy ever after and let me tell you they fought hard for that.
Anyway like I said it is a perfect addition to the series. It was sweet and sexy and it left me smiling for hours after I finished this novella. I highly recommend you read this book but you need to read the series’ first before you read this book.
Hard Ever After Excerpt, Threat Scene
Nick nailed Becca with a stare. As he watched, she made a valiant effort to button up just how upset she was, and that made him worry even more. He knelt down in front of her, his hands on her knees. “What’s going on?”
She shook her head, and his heart fucking broke as he saw her struggle to find her voice and hold back the tears.
Kat grasped something from Becca’s lap and held it out to him. “Someone left this in front of Becca’s locker at work today.”
Frowning, Nick accepted the small, floppy, black-and-brown stuffed animal into his hand. He guessed it was supposed to be a German shepherd, and the damn thing was missing a leg. It looked like someone had cut the back leg off and stapled the opening closed. What the hell?
“Look at the neck, Nick,” Kat said, her voice serious.
He flipped it around, and that was when he noticed that the animal was so floppy because the head was connected to the body only by a thin strip of material along the back. He might not have thought much about that if someone hadn’t gone to the trouble of spray painting the torn opening red. As if the neck had been slit. “Sonofabitch,” he said, hot prickles running down his back. “Talk to me, Sunshine.”
She heaved a deep breath. “I found it at the end of my shift,” she said. “I went to get my stuff, and this was sitting upright on the floor in front of my locker. I thought someone had left me a present until . . .”
“This is fucking twisted,” Kat bit out.
The words echoed Nick’s own thoughts. Twisted and threatening. The removed leg was clearly meant to communicate that the person knew Becca’s dog had only three legs, which made the threat personal and specific.
“Did you talk to security about this?” he asked, making sure to keep his voice even.
Becca shook her head. “I was so freaked out, I just wanted to get out of there.”
“I didn’t know about this until just now, or I would’ve brought us home earlier,” Kat said.
“I’m sorry,” Becca said, turning to Nick’s sister. “I just wanted to forget about it for a few hours.”
“I know,” Kat said. “You don’t have to apologize, but I’m worried about this.”
Nick nodded. “Can you think of anyone at the hospital who would do this? Who would have a problem with you?”
