Caught between desire and loyalty…
Derek DiMarzio would do anything for the members of his disgraced Special Forces team—sacrifice his body, help a former teammate with a covert operation to restore their honor, and even go behind enemy lines. He just never expected to want the beautiful woman he found there.
When a sexy stranger asks questions about her brother, Emilie Garza is torn between loyalty to the brother she once idolized and fear of the war-changed man he's become. Derek’s easy smile and quiet strength tempt Emilie to open up, igniting the desire between them and leading Derek to crave a woman he shouldn’t trust.
As the team’s investigation reveals how powerful their enemies are, Derek and Emilie must prove where their loyalties lie before hearts are broken and lives are lost. Because love is too hard to come by to let slip away…
All right, first things first, I strongly encouraged you to start from the beginning. This isn't a series you can jump in the middle of a book, because you will be lost. You might be able to piece it together, but story happens in a story amount of time and each story adds to overall plot. Okay, I have said my piece on the series.
Laura Kaye brings us more action and romance in her latest Hard Ink series in Hard To Come By. In here we get a closer look at Derek DiMarzio (Marz). Now Marz lost his right leg when they were ambushed back in Afghanistan. However, you tend to forget he's missing a leg when he just opens his mouth. I mean he could be down out about the lost of his leg, but tries not to focus on it. Plus, he has big heart and care for those around him.
We get introduced to Emilie Garza, she's the sister of Manny Garza who team has an interest in finding. However, the guys at Hard Ink aren't the only ones looking for him. What makes Emilie special? Well, she's the first person Marz had a desire to be with, but there is the slight problem which would be her brother. So, Marz he some of the information from her. By the way doesn't fly over to well cause what her ex-husband did to her. Seriously, he did a number on her trust with guys. Basically Emilie has to come to terms with her own insecurities and trust.
