Justine Elvira Guest Review
Meredith Wild has done it again! I absolutely love The Hacker Series and was so excited to receive an ARC of Hard Limit, the fourth book in The Hacker Series. I devoured it in one day and in true Meredith Wild fashion, it left me craving more. This is another five star read for me.
Hard Limit starts where Hardline (Book 3 in The Hacker Series) leaves off. Erica and Blake are back and still dealing with the many outside parties that are trying to destroy their relationship, both personally and professionally. Erica has just learned about a possible new enemy, Richard. She's starting to realize he may have started things back up with Marie for the wrong reasons. She's also still dealing with the drama around her father, Isaac, James, Sophia, Trevor, and the list goes on. Did I mention the police are still investigating Max's death?
Blake is Erica's rock, the man whom she loves more than anything. He's by her side and trying to help her the only way he knows how. He's taking complete control. What I love about Erica and Blake's relationship is that Blake is the ultimate Alpha and there is something extremely sexy and empowering about that.
But it wouldn't be a Hacker Series book without the ups and down. Blake is still having a hard time getting Erica to trust him completely and Erica is still hiding things from Blake. This causes some trouble towards the beginning of the book and, God I loved it! I'm a huge fan of angst when it's done right and Meredith Wild knows how to write angst and doesn't make it drag on forever.
You also get to see tremendous growth with Erica in this book. When things were looking bad between her and Blake in the past, she would run away. In Hard Limit she realizes just how much she needs him, and no matter how bad things get she doesn't run. She wants to work on it with him. I loved seeing her mature in the relationship, especially since Blake is her first real relationship.
I don't want to give too much away about this book because if you're like me, I hate reading spoilers in reviews. What I will say is all of our favorites are back. Alli and Heath are adorable together and we also get to see some flames ignite between James and Simone. Blake and Erica's relationship blossoms to a new level and even after all they go through in this book, they are stronger than ever. Have some tissues next to you though. Just because they're stronger than ever, it doesn't mean they have it easy. Some devastating things happen to Erica, both personally and professionally, and your heart will just break for her.
All in all, I absolutely loved Hard Limit. It satisfied every need I have for a book. There was love, romance, drama, angst, heartbreak, friendship and laughter. Oh, and the sex!!! Blake continues to introduce Erica to new things in the bedroom (and outside of the bedroom). I love dominant Blake. It is HOT!
Unlike other books you may read, Meredith Wild makes her characters as realistic as possible. They go through pain just like the rest of us do and it makes the story that much more believable. I highly recommend this books and series. You will not be disappointed with Hard Limit and The Hacker Series, and if you're like me you'll be anxiously awaiting the next book, Hard Love.
