[Review and Excerpt: Hard to Serve by Laura Kaye]

10:30:00 PM


So many readers asked for more stories in my bestselling Hard Ink series, and I’m so excited to be able to give you just that in my new, super sexy HARD TO SERVE! HARD TO SERVE is an edgy stand-alone love story about a Baltimore police detective whose red-hot BDSM relationship with a new submissive seems like the perfect distraction from a trumped-up investigation against him until he learns that the woman is his boss’s daughter. Talk about sparks flying! I had so much fun writing this book, and I can’t wait for everyone to read it! And if you enjoy it, you might like to check out the whole Hard Ink series, now complete! Happy reading!

Sitting on the little, private loveseat at the back of the big bar area, nervous anticipation jangled through Mia. “So…about you being an asshole…”

Chuckling, Kyler took her hand and winked. “Yes, about that. I’m sorry, because I’d like to see you again.”

The room spun around her, despite the fact that she was sitting perfectly still. But then she shook her head. “I can’t afford it.” She’d received the offer of full membership, but between the cost and how she and Master Kyler had left things, she hadn’t even given it a second thought.

“I’m not talking about Blasphemy, Mia. Well, not just Blasphemy. I’m talking about me and you.” He traced his finger over her thigh close to her knee.

She shivered, as much from the touch as from the words. “Me and you,” she repeated.

“Sounds even better when you say it,” he said, leaning in and nuzzling her face. He kissed her temple, her cheek, the corner of her mouth. “I just need you to know, I don’t do this, Mia. Any of this. Because I’ve never before met anyone who made me want to do it. And I’m not even sure I’ll be any good at it. But this last week has been fucking miserable, and I—”

She’d heard enough. Enough to know what she wanted. She kissed him. Planted her hands in his hair and kissed him so damn hard.

The growl he unleashed sounded like pure victory, especially when he quickly took over, plundering her mouth with his tongue, hauling her onto his lap so that she straddled him. He tugged her hair, rubbed hard hands over her body, pressed his erection up against her wet panties.

“Oh, God,” she rasped around the edge of the kiss.

“Fucking missed you,” he said, his hands finally touching her breasts, kneading and squeezing through the thin cotton of the little bronze-colored dress. “Fucking need you.”

“I need you, too,” she rasped, grinding against his erection. Her blood was molten, and a sheen of sweat broke out over her body. She was already so close.

“Don’t come,” he ordered. His big palm slipped under the flowy pleats of her dress and gripped her ass. Hard. “You do not have permission to come.”

She whimpered, because the command shoved her in that direction, just like he must’ve known it would. The sexy bastard. “Please, Sir. Please.”

He nailed her with a stare, his eyes dark blue fire. “You want to come, Mia?”

A fast nod. “Yes, Sir.”

“You want to come, you do it on my cock.”

For a second, Mia couldn’t breathe, because she wasn’t sure she’d ever been so turned on in her whole life. “Here? Now?”

Kyler just looked at her, one eyebrow arched in a challenge, a dare.

    HARD TO SERVE - cover


To protect and serve is all Detective Kyler Vance ever wanted to do, so when Internal Affairs investigates him as part of the new police commissioner’s bid to oust corruption, everything is on the line. Which makes meeting a smart, gorgeous submissive at an exclusive play club the perfect distraction…

The director of the city’s hottest art gallery, Mia Breslin’s career is golden. Now if only she could find a man to dominate her nights and set her body—and her heart—on fire. When a scorching scene with a hard-bodied, brooding Dom at Blasphemy promises just that, Mia is lured to serve Kyler again and again.

As their relationship burns hotter, Kyler runs into Mia at work and learns that he’s been dominating the daughter of the hard-ass boss who has it in for him. Now Kyler must choose between life-long duty and forbidden desire before Mia finds another who’s not so hard to serve.

“She needed the incredible release of submission, and she needed someone strong enough to truly give it to her.”

I was so so super excited when I’ve read that Detective Kyler Vance will have his own book, and to know that he’s kinky? Well, fuck me senseless. It’s a chance for me being a Hard Ink fan to take a sneak peek of what’s been going on with my favorite men and to know what’s happened with the people who helped them with their crusade.

“Brown hair. Blue eyes. Dominance so palpable in his gaze that Mia found it hard not to look down. Kneel. Submit. From just that one look.”

Hard to Serve is another 1001 Dark Nights novella and an introduction to Laura Kaye’s new series, Blasphemy. To be honest, I am not really that a big fan of the 1001 Dark Nights but every time I read one, I always read the intro in every novella, even though I’ve read it more times than I can count. But this is a Laura Kaye book and man, anything by her. I am all for it.

“I don’t want to sit and talk. I want to fuck. Hard. I want to be aggressive. Maybe I even want to be a little mean.”

Detective Kyler Vance is a hard ass man that intrigues me. Dominant, loyal to a fault and a man of honor who would serve and protect hard to those who matter to him.

Mia Breslin is a woman I admired. She knows what she wants, and even though it’s hard, she will chase what she needs and go for it. A woman who needed dominance in her life.

It was lust at first sight. Sexual tension palpable and the chemistry and connection is there. Will they go for what they want or will they be separated because of the reasons that hold them apart to be together?

I haven't read a BDSM romance in long while because I've been picky about setting and plot and especially if it involves the BDSM club. But this book just made me want me to devour BDSM romance again. I say I'm ready for Blasphemy!

“Because he wasn’t sure whether fucking would satisfy the urge he felt to be with her once and for all-or just make him yearn for more.”

This book wasn't about just getting what we want but also about getting to know ourselves better and admitting to ourselves our needs and desires and what makes us happy. This makes me miss spanking (theoretically) and just right, not hard core and not too sweet. Definitely something I'd recommend. Read hard, always.

“You make me feel alive. With every touch. Every smile. Every laugh.”
