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.

My Review:

Hard to Serve is novella number eleven in the 2016 1,001 Dark Nights lineup as well as part of author Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink series.  Being a ginormous fan of Ms. Kaye’s work, I was dying  for this novella.  Well, I’ve got two words for you: Holy.  Hotness.  This story was of the charts sexy, hot, delicious, sweet… so many things! I loved it.

I’ve gotta start out by telling you that I’ve read everything Laura Kaye has written.  Every time she has a new release I end up saying it’s my favorite of hers at that moment.  The thing is about this author is that she just keeps…getting…better.  Hard to Serve is just another shining example of that.  The relationship between Kyler and Mia was intense but also tender.  The attraction is immediate and there wasn’t one second where I doubted there were two people better suited for one another than Kyler and Mia.  I love Kyler’s take charge attitude and his alpha male deliciousness but most of all I loved the soft side he shows with Mia.  Speaking of Mia, man how I love this gal! She is vulnerable when it comes to her current situation and wanting to experience the lifestyle but she’s strong and knows what she wants and has determination that I truly admire.  Together these two are amazing and had me glued to each page and hanging on every word. I also loved the added tension when it comes to Mia’s father being Kyler’s boss.  Talk about throwing a wrench into things! Not to worry though, because if there’s one thing Laura Kaye does so darn well it’s getting a couple back on track and giving them one hell of an ending.  I can’t even tell you how many happy teaser I was shedding while reading this ending.  It was INCREDIBLE! Truly beyond incredible!

I also have to mention how flipping excited I am about the start of the series involving the club introduced in this book, Blasphemy. It’s one of the coolest and most interesting ideas out there and I’m so excited! I know I will be devouring it.

Thank you, Ms. Kaye, for a super sexy, scorchingly hot, incredible read that kept me glued to the pages!
