    1. Holy hot damn!! This novella was hella interesting and hella sexy. If this was just a taste of what Laura Kaye has to offer, sign me up!!Jess and Ike have been best friends for four years. Due to some behind-the-scenes drama, we're immediately thrust into a story about Jess having to hid out from some bad guys and Ike's tasked with protecting her. It was soon obvious that these two wanted each other real bad. However, a traumatic even from Ike's past has left him hesitant to start anything with [...]


    2. 5 - "You're a little pain in my ass." Stars!Another absolutely stellar read from Laura Kaye. This novella transitions us from the Hard Ink series in that it gives you the story of what happens to, and between Jess and Ike, after he takes her away from the rest of the group in Baltimore because of the threat to her life, and introduces us to the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club, when they end up staying at the compound.There is no messing with this one, the chemistry between Jess and Ike, is combusti [...]


    3. 4.5★He wished the light was on so he could see her, but maybe the darkness was better. It made it feel more like the dream he’d thought it was.I’m a Hard Ink fan and over the course of the series, I’ve gotten gaga over those men and the people that surrounded them. Even at the start, Jess and Ike had this tension between them that had intrigue me and wished for something for them. And now, wish granted. Ta da! To be honest, most of 1001 Dark Nights that I’ve read were rather not so enj [...]


    4. GIVEAWAY (open until 10-4-15) AND REVIEW POSTED HERE alleskelle/%E2%98%85reviewArc offered in exchange for an honest reviewFour stars for this hot treat! Fans of the Hard Ink series have been waiting to see what Ike and Jessica got up to after they fled Baltimore on his bike in the wake of mayhem and tragedy at Hard Ink. A 100-page crossover novella, Hard As Steel closes out the Hard Ink Series and gives us new insight into the lives of the Raven Riders MC.Ike Young has always fought valiantly a [...]


    5. LOVED this one!Ike was smoking, and it was a nice change of pace to read about a heroine who wasn't shy about getting around. I could have done with a bit less pushing away by Ike, but it was still a really good read! I really love this series.


    6. 2 1/2 starsMessage to Jess: If you've got a history of one-night stands, you don't forego protection. Ever. Even if you're having sex with the one. You. Just. Don't.


    7. ARC REVIEW:If you are a fan of Laura Kaye's Hard Ink stories, you will not be disappointed. You will recognize Jessica and Ike. They both work for Jeremy and are beloved like family. Ike is also the a member of the Raven Riders Motorcycle club. When Nick and the rest of gang get in over their heads, Ike offers help from the MC. One of the things I like most about this story is that Ike and Jessica have an established relationship. In too many cases with novellas, insta-love abounds. However as c [...]


    8. This is a filthy friends-to-fucking novella that had me scrambling around for my vibrator. Holy shit. Ike and Jessica’s chemistry is like another character lurking in the background waiting to be introduced. And when it is…oh.god. There was one scene that I went back and read again. And then again. Because, fuck. That was hot.This story is happening at the same time as the one in Hard To Let Go and I adored seeing this piece from Jessica and Ike’s perspective. This love story might be shor [...]


    9. This was so awesome! Love, love, loved it! This was a full story that really packed a punch. It was full of emotion, intensity, and heat.Ike and Jessica are wonderful characters and I loved getting to know them and about their pasts. They have fantastic chemistry together. There was so much sexual tension and animosity, it was great. I couldn't get enough. I love Ike and Jessica opening up and coming together and seeing those sweet and vulnerable moments between the two. Love their attraction an [...]



    10. It pains me to give this novella such a low rating. My loyalty & respect for author Laura Kaye are the ONLY things propping up my 2-star rating; otherwise, I'd have given this novella the 1 star that it truly deserves. And just for the record, I LOVE author Laura Kaye. (I've purchased nearly every book that she's ever published). I also have mad love for the Hard Ink series, & thus, I had such high hopes for this installment, featuring Ike Young & Jessica Jakes. Ike & Jess were t [...]


    11. Not only is this book HOT's so HOT that I had to read it twicejust to make sure that I measured the hotness correctly! Ike and Jess not only have such explosive chemistry, I swear their clothes just fall off the moment their eyes meet, but Laura keeps the "friendship" alive with super fun banter and sexual innuendos (that us dirty minded people will say "I totally would have said that too).For such a short read, Laura sure packs a punch, jumping right into the story, and giving a realistic portr [...]

    13. 3.5 starsI'm a huge fan of Laura Kaye's Hard Ink series so when I found out she was writing a spin off about the Raven Riders MC I was thrilled. Hard as Steel is a crossover novel that bridges the two series and gives us the chance to meet some more of the Raven Riders characters. We've already met both of the main characters, Jess and Ike, in the Hard Ink novels and timeline of this novella is during Hard to Let Go so will contain spoilers for that book if you haven't already read it.Ike and Je [...]


    14. Hard As Steel is the newest work from author Laura Kaye and is part of the 1,001 Dark Nights 2015 line-up as well as a cross-over of Ms. Kaye’s Hard Ink Series and her Raven Riders Series. I am a huge fan of Ms. Kaye’s and when I tell you I devoured this story, that would be a gross understatement. I couldn’t put it down! It was phenomenal. Filled with suspense and scorching heat, it was just amazing.The attraction between Jessica and Ike was two things: mutual and hidden. Neither one want [...]


    15. I remember in the Hard Ink novels when Ike whisked Jess away to hide her out after her house was ransacked. I remember knowing that there was something there between them, and being intrigued by that. Now we have their story. Ike is an intriguing guy. He's a tattoo artist at Hard Ink. He's an important member of a motorcycle club. He's an all around heroic bad ass biker guy. And, he's got baggage from his past that has prevented him from acting on his interest in his co-worker, Jess, for years. [...]


    16. Laura Kaye is one of a few authors that I will 1-click, no questions asked. I love her Stubborn alpha males and Ike Young is just that, a stubborn, sexy, hulk of a man who rides a motor bike? What's not to like? The truth of that is absolutely nothing, he's perfect. Then we have adorable Jessica Jakes who is in danger because of the people she knows (the super hot Hard Ink guys). Caught in the crossfire between her employers and their enemies, her 'friend' Ike takes her away to keep her safe. Un [...]


    17. While novellas aren’t my preferred choice when it comes to book-length, Laura Kaye has previously proven herself to be more than capable if packing a well-rounded story, complete with emotions, conflict, and romance, into an abbreviated amount of time. While Hard As Steel is a crossover novella between the author’s Hard Ink series and her upcoming MC series, Raven Riders, the story stands on its own, following the between protagonists, Ike Young and Jessica Jakes. Not only is Hard As Steel a [...]


    18. YESSS!!!! Bring the Ravens one!To say I was stricken with sadz when I finished reading the last Hard Ink novel is an understatement. I loved every single word Laura Kaye wrote in that series. And the came 1001 Dark Nights! *squee*You must remember Ike and Jess who work at Hard Ink Tattoo, right? Well, they had to run halfway through the series as Jess’s place was ransacked by the bad guys who wanted info from her on the SF team. Ike is responsible to her, and as it turns out in this novella, t [...]


    19. I CANNOT get enough of Laura Kaye's Hard Ink Men! All of them are alpha males to their core, but there is also a softer side of themybe even a tormented side due to circumstances beyond their control, and Ike Young, Kaye’s newest Hard Ink man seems to be weighed down with a past that won’t release him from moving on and enjoying more than living half a life. But if there’s one thing that Kaye has proven to her readers, it’s that her heroines are more than willing to battle their men’s [...]


    20. 4.5 Stars, 3.5 FlamesI read this book after Hard Ever After because I couldn't let the men of Hard Ink go. This novella opens the doors to a spin off series for the Raven MC that's mentioned in the last few Hard Ink books. I have got to say that Laura Kaye definitely delivered and brought up the heat factor with this novella. Most of the Hard Ink series has some naughty talkers and sexy times but this novella brought the grit that comes with MC romances. With the other books we don't really get [...]


    21. 4 1/2 Stars!!I loved it!! The only reason it's 4, not 5 stars is because I wanted more! Just as it was really getting good, it was over. I'm hoping to see more of Ike and Jess in the upcoming "Raven Riders MC" series.Ike and Jess are simply PERFECT for each other. He is bad ass and protective and she is sweet and wild. She may look like a tattooed wild child- which she is- but she has such a tender spirit. I loved her! And these two burn up the sheets, let me tell you! Ike is a dirty talker, and [...]


    22. Can I tell you how excited I was to find out there would be a Hard Ink and Raven Riders crossover? Get read for another wild ride….a glimpse into the attraction between Ike and Jessica. Both fled Baltimore when the attack occurred at Hard Ink. As they ‘make tracks’ on the back of Ike’s bike, the duo find themselves fighting an obvious attraction. Something that revs up like the roar of Ike’s motorcycle. Burning up everything in their path. Hiding out in Ike’s secluded cottage proves [...]


    23. This is the first time I've read one of the 1001 Dark Nights books, but I'm no stranger to the Hard Ink series. This story overlapped the events of a couple of those books, so really should not be read without having read that series first. This story wasn't bad, but the characterization was a bit off for me. I really began to hate Ike and how he kept pushing Jess away, and yet wanting to have sex with her at nearly every opportunity. We really didn't get too deep with Jess, other than her love [...]



    24. Having read the first two of Laura Kaye’s Blasphemy series and really enjoyed them, while I wait for the next one to come out at the end of the month, I thought I’d check out her Raven Riders Series. Hard As Steel is a 1001 Dark Nights crossover novella from Ms. Kayes Hard as Ink and the Raven Riders series so I thought I would start with it.Now, I’m not much of a grass is always greener type girl but this book seemed to bring it out in me. Let me explain. I checked out a couple of reviews [...]


    25. Hard As Steel was good, just not as good as the rest of the Hard Ink series. Jess and Ike are quite comical together, they definitely know how to push each others buttons and do it often. They both have tragic things from their past that still affect them. I liked the caring, sweet, and vulnerable sides that they both bring out in each other. They're a great fit for one another, they both know just how to handle each other. Ike made me mad for a while with the things he said; I think he got off [...]


    26. Good (I had to edit because I used speech to text originally and just saw a lot of wrong wordslol)It was a good cute story. A little quick with the change of emotion from one extreme to another from wanting to keep her away to wanting to keep her close but it was okay. The problem I had was with the audible version. The guy BREATHES every word when he was speaking on behalf of them. I don't know if I'm explaining it correctly but every time he had to speak the words in quotation marks he breathe [...]


    27. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Hot and steamy contemporary romance with sexy characters and a story that really sucked me in.Opening Sentence: Jessica Jakes had been lusting after Ike Young from almost the day she met him, back when she was a newbie piercer at Hard Ink Tattoo and Ike first came looking for a job as an artist.The Review:Hard as Steel is another installment in the 1001 Dark Nights series. It is also the first in a crossover series featuring the Raven Riders [...]


    28. I have wanted Ike and Jessica's story since there was a hint of their attraction to each other.Ike Young is the tattoo artist/MC guy who works for Jeremy. He's part of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club and he had the hots for Jessica for a while. When her life is in danger, he takes her where he knows she is going to be safe, his home close the MC's compound. Although, spending time alone with her might be harder that he thought. Jessica Jakes works for Jeremy too. She does the piercings. When sh [...]
