Hard to Let Go on Goodreads

EXCERPT: Taking a deep breath, Beckett knocked on the door. No answer. He turned the knob, and the door opened. “Go away,” came a strained voice. Beckett poked his head through the opening. Kat sat in a ball in the corner, her legs pulled up to her chest, her arms hugging herself tight. “Aw, Jesus, Beckett. Really?” Her face was splotchy and her eyes watery, though he didn’t see any tears. Ten-to-one she was going through some adrenaline letdown right now, too. Which no doubt made it all worse. That shit could fuck you up even when you were used to how it left you feeling drained and shaky, by how all the stress you’d suppressed during the height of the crisis boomeranged twice over after the fact. He came into the room, closed the door, and turned the lock for good measure. And then he crossed to Kat, scooped his arms under her knees and behind her back and lifted her up against him. She smacked his chest. “Put me down.” “No.” He moved to the edge of the bed. “I don’t need this right now, Beckett. Put me down.” “Yes, you do,” he said, sitting on the edge of the mattress. He pulled her face in against his throat and smoothed her hair back from her cheek. She trembled against him, just the littlest bit, her skin hot to the touch. He pressed a kiss to her forehead and hugged her tighter. “You did good, kid.” Every one of her muscles went tight. Her hand fisted in his shirt. And her breath caught as she buried her face against his neck and shoulder. Then Kat burst out crying. And it was like being torn apart and put back together, all at once. He hated her pain, but he adored that she wasn’t hiding herself from him, and that she was letting him be there for her. He didn’t shush her, or try to talk her down, or encourage her to dry her eyes. To be sure, her tears were like daggers in his heart—they hurt like fucking hell. But the only way she was going to feel better was to let this shit out. Ironic realization for him—he did actually see that. But just because you could see what was good for others didn’t mean you had the first goddamned idea how to apply those principles in your own life. And that was a problem for another time anyway. What mattered right now was Kat. What mattered … was Kat.
About HARD TO LET GO: Beckett Murda hates to dwell on the past. But his investigation into the ambush that killed half his Special Forces team and ended his Army career gives him little choice. Just when his team learns how powerful their enemies are, hard-ass Beckett encounters his biggest complication yet—a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey. A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo shop following a bad break-up—and finds herself staring down the barrel of a stranger’s gun. Beckett is hard-bodied and sexy as hell, but he’s also the most infuriating man ever. Worse, Kat’s brothers are at war with the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights . . . and in his arms. Not to mention their enemies’ crosshairs. Now Beckett and Kat must set aside their differences to work together, because the only thing sweeter than justice is finding love and never letting go.

REVIEW: The Marriage Contract by Katee Robert

Happy New Release to Katee Robert. And what a great new series she's created!

In this novel....

Teague O'Malley hates pretty much everything associated with his family's name. And when his father orders him to marry Callista Sheridan to create a "business" alliance, Teague's ready to tell his dad exactly where he can stuff his millions. But then Teague actually meets his new fiancée, sees the bruises on her neck and the fight still left in her big blue eyes, and vows he will do everything in his power to protect her.

Everyone knows the O'Malleys have a dangerous reputation. But Callie wasn't aware just what that meant until she saw Teague, the embodiment of lethal grace and coiled power. His slightest touch sizzles through her. But the closer they get, the more trouble they're in. Because Callie's keeping a dark secret-and what Teague doesn't know could get him killed.


Secrets…suspense…another great read by Katee Robert. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. This is different from her previous books, deeper and so fascinating. Kudos!
There’s instant love in this story, which works well for PNR but sometimes is a stretch for contemporary romance. Yet, this author delivers it with flare. And so much hotness between these main characters helps a lot. Whew.

Callie struggles to prove herself in a male-dominated world. She has inherent strength and a remarkable determination to honor her family's name. Teague dislikes the life he's forced to live, and wants escape. I loved Teage. Such a loyal guy with no one in his corner.

No spoilers here. You’ll have to read the story to get more.
There was so much going on that sometimes it detracted from the romance between the main characters, but it didn’t stop me from thoroughly enjoying this story.  Now I’m ready to read the next in the series.

REVIEW of Wicked Ride by Zanetti


Alexandra Monzelle is a hard-fighting, heat-packing Seattle vice cop, and she’s not much interested in being protected. Her short skirt and sex-kitten heels are tools to lure her suspects into talking about the deadly new drug hitting the streets. She can take care of herself and then some. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to get that through to Kellach Dunne.

Kellach is a fresh import from Dublin, and he’s landed at the heart of a vicious motorcycle club that deals in guns, narcotics, and mayhem. He’s all male, all rough power—and all interference in her damn investigation. Maybe he’s one of the good guys. Maybe not. Lex knows an affair with an immortal like him would risk everything. No matter how delicious he looks…



Yet another wonderful ride by Rebecca Zanetti. It’s a spin-off series (Realm Enforcers) and I was nervous about this, but I should not have been.  And, wow, what a ride this story gives the reader. Paranormal readers looking for a story with a smoking hot hero who’s possessive, alpha and heroic, AND demons, vampires and shifters, AND a tough-as-nails heroine, then look no further.

This the story of Alexandra Monzelle, a by-the-rules Seattle police officer, and Kellach Gideon Dunne, Irish biker part of a club that seems to be about the anarchy and mayhem but he’s a realm enforcer. I’m not going to hash out the detail of this job. But when Kellach slams into the middle of Lex’s investigation while purusing a dangerous drug (Apollo), sparks fly. At times Lex’s cop attitude might’ve gone a little far but given her history we understand. There’s definite misunderstandings between the two characters, given that he cannot tell her what he is, but they learn to trust each other and make their relationship work.

I most enjoyed the burgeoning relationship amidst an action-packed story. Their sizzling chemistry and his antiquated ways. With a paranormal twist, as we expected. Overall, great read!
