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 their demanding jobs and upcoming nuptials, an old menace they thought was 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.

An Avon Romance

Customer Reviews


Hard Ever After by Laura Kaye is the absolute perfect ending to the Hard Ink Series (assuming this is the end). I had so much fun with the characters as they were on the other side of their quest for answers. It was the time to get their lives back and live a normal life. Not a life on lock-down and always watching for bad guys. It was time for Becca and Nick’s wedding!

Kaye has really done a phonemoneal job with the Hard Ink Series. I love the balance of romance, suspense and smoking hot scenes she writes in her stories. Like the other books, Hard Ever After was a page turner for me. I hung on every word the characters spoke and felt like I was one of them. Even though Nick and Becca were in the other books in the series, it was like coming home to read a book where they were the main characters again.

Of course, the Hard Ink guys had one more loose end to tie up before they could all truly move on with their Happy Ever After and Kaye did not disappoint with this story line. She provided a realistic plot that had me looking over my shoulder at times while reading the story. The way it played out mingled with the rest of the story so well and in the end there Becca (and the rest of us) were given the much needed closure. I couldn’t have imaged a better ending to it all.

If you have read the other books in the Hard Ink series, you must give Hard Ever After a read. You will find yourself laughing with the characters, squirming a little during the sexy scenes, wanting to protect Becca with the rest of the gang and shedding a tear at a very beautiful wedding. Give this book and the rest of the series a try. You will love it.

Must Read for Hark Ink Fans

Hard Ever After is everything that you could possibly want in a follow up novella to the Hard Ink series. The entire Hard Ink crew and their newly extended circle of family and friends are finally getting back to normal after the craziness that brought them all together. Nick realizes that now is the perfect time to make his and Becca’s connection permanent and of the “‘til death do us part” variety. Becca is over the moon excited to finally make Nick her’s and herself Nick’s, there’s just one little problem…the craziness that brought the whole Hard Ink crew together is quite over after all. Laura Kaye delivers all the heat, heart, and humor that Hard Ink fans have come to expect. She also is gracious enough to give us little sneak peaks and updates about all the hot and steamy couples of the Hard Ink crew. You don’t want to miss this beautiful epilogue to great series!
