REVIEW/RELEASE BLITZ: The Hard Way by Annika Martin

Series: Taken Hostage by Kinky Bank Robbers #5
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Three hot bank robbers all to herself: ☑
A fabulous Italian holiday: ☑
Enemies long gone: ☑
Amazing food, clothes, and sex: ☑, ☑, and fucking-g ☑!

The gang is in full vacation mode, and Isis has never been happier…until tragedy strikes the farm she had to leave behind. People are dying...and her sister might be sent to prison for something she didn’t do.

Isis is desperate to help, but how can she? It’s too dangerous for her sisters to find out she’s still alive, too dangerous for the gang to return to the scene of that crime. At least that’s what Thor and Zeus think. But Odin’s nightmares are back. And he has other ideas…and those ideas might be more dangerous than anything.

~Book Review~
4.75 Stars

The god pack is back for another installment in the Kinky Bank Robbers series. If you aren’t familiar with the series then it’s best to start at book one when three hot criminal masterminds take a not helpless at all teller voluntarily hostage and the rest is lust, love, and romance history.  Now two years later, the foursome is married, but they aren’t any less badass.
“‘We sweep in and out. Like fucking-g ghosts with the hammer of justice in our fucking-g fists.’”—Odin
They’re still loaded with confidence:
“‘I can do two things at once….You yourself have witnessed that many times.’” —Zeus
They haven’t lost their humor:
“‘Isis. Since when have I put something in you that didn’t feel excellent?’” —Thor
And they are swoonworthy as ever!
 “He knelt in front of me and planted a kiss on my bare mound. ‘Correction: I love you like this.’” —Isis
Awww! 💕

This time around Ice’s sisters are in trouble, and it’s up to the god pack to rescue them, whether they know it or not.  The foursome puts their detective skills to use once again on this incognito mission complete with the series’ signature fresh, light-hearted banter and Isis’s witty first person narration.

My blog followers know I loathe fan girl reviews but I have to indulge just for a moment to say that Annika Martin is a creative genius when it comes to these fully developed characters and specifically their comedic dirty antics.  OMG, the cock-blocking cherubs—one of the many delightful chuckle-snort moments of this edition. The deliciousness is in all the quirky details of so many well crafted scenes.

Now back to being a serious reviewer… I’ll admit I craved just a little more kinky interludes although the mystery angle always kept me engaged. This installment is Odin centric and some of the previous have been Zeus centric so I’m hopeful the next one gives Thor the limelight. I felt like he got a little…neglected this time if you catch my drift. None the less, I'm impressed with the way the series continues to build up each of the characters.

Speaking of future installments, the Claus banter at the beginning…please, please Annika—treat us this holiday season to a Kinky Bank Robbers Christmas. Come on, the role playing possibilities would be endless.
“They were coordinating, of course. This is what you got from seasoned criminals fucking and disciplining you—wicked coordination.”
Let’s hope 😉

Anyways, this continues to be a must read series for fans of erotic romcoms. You just can’t top a strong heroine and three hot heroes alongside a mystery plot that dishes out adventure rather than angst.
