    Holy hot damn This novella was hella interesting and hella sexy If this was just a taste of what Laura Kaye has to offer, sign me up Jess and Ike have been best friends for four years Due to some behind the scenes drama, we re immediately thrust into a story about Jess having to hid out from some bad guys and Ike s tasked with protecting her It was soon obvious that these two wanted each other real bad However, a traumatic even from Ike s past has left him hesitant to start anything with Holy hot damn This novella was hella interesting and hella sexy If this was just a taste of what Laura Kaye has to offer, sign me up Jess and Ike have been best friends for four years Due to some behind the scenes drama, we re immediately thrust into a story about Jess having to hid out from some bad guys and Ike s tasked with protecting her It was soon obvious that these two wanted each other real bad However, a traumatic even from Ike s past has left him hesitant to start anything with Jess The sparks flew, clothes fell off, the sex was incredibly hot, and there was a decent yet vague plot I m off to add someLaura Kaye to my tbr

I m a Hard Ink fan and over the course of the series, I ve gotten gaga over those men and the people that surrounded them Even at the start, Jess and Ike had this tension between them that had intrigue me and wished for something for them And now, wish granted Ta da To be honest, most of 1001 Dark Nights that I ve read were rather not so enjoyable for me, and I was hesitant to try another But to think that this is Jess and Ike and I was so goddamn excited Add to the fact that I get to take a sneak peek of the Raven Riders, this outlaw club that has taken to itself to save the troubled Whatfuckingever.Ike and Jess story took somewhere in Hard to Be Good and Hard to Let Go Well, to fully enjoy this novel, I suggest that you read the Hard Ink Series to know the dynamics between Ike and Jess and to better understand their reactions to what was happening in here But, if you won t, well, just enjoy these two because I know you ll want to meet the Hard Ink men eventually and look forward to the Raven Riders like me.I didn t want to put too much expectation while I started reading this, but I guess maybe it was the weather and me or so because it was what I was feeling during those chapters that it made for a slow read And I can t believe as much as I like Ike, he had turned out to be an asshole Fuck you very muchI d dreamed of being with you so many times, but I never thought it would happen I could ve lived on those memories for the rest of my life if I had toIndeed Ike and Jess are too broken souls who have been attracted with each other ever since But Jess, blatant that she was, had some pride left in her, and so she had sleep with other men, where the trouble had started A few nights before the massive changed that happened that is Jess going to live with Ike until the shit that hit the fan cool down she had slept with a guy, whom she later discovered is in bed with Seneka, a big company that is after her friends.Ike being a Raven, and being as he was, of course offered to watch Jess Yep, the term was watch And so the fun begins Or notJust for tonight As often and in any way that you want In the morning, it ll all have been a fevered dreamThat was a slow build for my taste and frankly I was losing faith But somehow, with the shit happening on the Hard Ink, Ike made some big decisions and I had to say, finally Those parts were actually fun, the teasing and the play and it lifted my spirit somehow I ve like Ike and to know the past he had to carry in his shoulders, my heart went out for himBut being an asshole Gah, I was frustrated with him His smart ass, flirtatious, fun loving, brave, sometimes maddening, always loyal Jess. Somehow,than ever, I ve felt longing for the Hard Ink men and it s like I was feeling the hardships that they had experience through Ike and Jess and in some way I understand what they re feeling, the wait they had to go through, on a deeper level I was actually sorry for them, to want to help and yet somehow they can do nothingthan just hope for the best.I love how it actually ended since it made me hopeful for them I think I amexcited for the Raven Riders and that I hope I will be seeingof Ike and Jess in the future And to hope against hope, that of course there will beinvolvement from the Hard Ink men.This is in fact the best crossover novella I have read because it had given me both worlds of something I ve loved and something that I will hope to love, and with that, I am stepping this upI don t know what the future holds, Jess But I know that right here is where I m supposed to be With you

    Jess and Ike were hot Hard as Steel flew by I mean. it had bikers so it wasn t that hard to get into it These two were not looking for a relationship but they definitely found one with each other They were cute and adorable but things got steamy when they were just by themselves I was so proud of them getting out of the friend zone because I would ve been so mad if they didn t This one was a lot of fun to read and can t wait for the next biker romance.

    LOVED this one Ike was smoking, and it was a nice change of pace to read about a heroine who wasn t shy about getting around I could have done with a bit less pushing away by Ike, but it was still a really good read I really love this series.
