Title: Hard Love
Series: Hacker #5
Author: Meredith Wild
Release Date: September 15, 2015
Days after their wedding, Blake and Erica Landon embark on their honeymoon-a journey that deepens their bond and promises to fade the scars of their past.
Just when their troubles seem safely behind them, a scandal threatens their new-found peace. Back home, Blake finds himself at the centre of the controversy, haunted by the transgressions of his hacker past that he has no wish to relive.
With Blake's freedom at stake and their future in peril, Erica will stop at nothing to clear his name. But when Blake defies the authorities and refuses to seek the truth, their world gradually begins to crumble. Will he let his past win? Or can Erica convince him that their life together is worth fighting for-now more than ever...
The perfect new addiction for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day's Bared To You series.
I’ve read all of the books in the Hacker series--some of them more than once, so I was waiting with baited breath for Hard Love. I was so excited to see what happened to Blake and Erika after the trauma of her getting shot...
Hard Love picks up on their honeymoon, but in true Meredith Wild fashion, there is mystery, suspense and some HARD LOVE going on. We are taken down a winding road filled with folks from their past, which culminates in an attempt to bring Blake down one more time.
I’m a lover of love, and an even bigger lover of suspense, so this was exactly what I needed and wanted from Blake and Erika. I was left with a couple of dangling questions and I’m hopeful that translates to maybe a new series--PLEASE :)--so I can see what happens with Heath and Alli, but we do get our HEA for Blake and Erika and that...that was exactly what I needed.

My favorite of the series!
Blake and Erica Landon have gone through a lot to get where they are today. They have faced challenges to their businesses, to their relationship—even to their lives. To say these two have gone through the ringer is an understatement. Manipulations, betrayals and secrets have almost torn the lovers apart more than once. A little more jaded but even more devoted to each other, they are finally in a place where they can look to the future rather than over their shoulder.
“I caught her hand gently, holding it against my heart where it raced beneath my ribs. Every bittersweet ache, every rush of love felt there belonged to her.”
Well, so they thought. This series has been driven by suspense and love and this installment has that and more. Their relationship is going to face one more challenge that will truly test how deep their love for each other is. A bit of the back and forth I’m used to with these two, with the tense storyline moving at a fast pace with an outcome I couldn’t be happier with.
A great way to end (?) the series!
