#instareview Ride Hard by Laura Kaye /Narrated by Abby Crandon (Read for Fun/Purchased on Audible) : It is funny the things I would defend in real life are not things I find sexy to read. In this case 15 year age difference which was glaringly obvious to me a lot while listening. Overall I love the premise of this series and look forward to reading the rest. I liked the action and the characters individually so I am sure the rest will have romances that I will love. This gets a 3.5 because outside the romance I liked it. A note on the narration : Abby is good so I think it was just this character but she sounded really young. That was a bit distracting. She did really well with the guys. #bookshots via Instagram http://ift.tt/2a4mES2

A couple of years ago at AADNola I got a really bad cold that had me missing the Saturday night events. One of the books that I had got in my bag was North of Need. I fell in love and haven’t looked back. I read North of Need in that one night and have pretty much liked every book I have read by Laura since. Laura writes alpha men that you not only love but could see being friends as well as lovers with. That is tough to get right but Laura does it! This year I read the Hard Ink series and can say that I am very much looking forward to the spin off: Raven Riders MC . Laura is also sweet in person! I have met her a few times and each time she has been humble, sweet, and kind. She makes time for everyone and really loves her readers. She is just AWESOME!

Read It/Rate It Thoughts: Hard to Come was such a good entry in this hard hitting, on the edge series by Laura Kaye. I specifically liked what Emilie brought to the group. Her love story with Derek was spot-on and really perfect for them!
