I love this series! Meredith Wild never loses sight of who
these two are throughout the series. Erica is still the
strong-willed, stubborn woman she was in Book 1. In
HARDLINE, we see Erica grow and change in order to give
Blake what he feels he needs from her - her submission. In
each book of the series, Erica and Blake's relationship
evolves. Their relationship has turned into something
beautiful and strong. Each are working on their issues,
both have given so much of themselves in order for this
relationship to work. Something is always there to tear
them apart, but they always find each other, their love
always strengthening them. As the wedding approaches, I can
not wait to see where HARD LIMIT, Book 4 takes these two!
