Some Black Op missions are too dark—even for him.
Volcanic hot and ambitious Special Agent Will Berwick doesn’t give a damn what his orders are; he’s not taking the enemy—the lovely but arctic Dr. Angel Treherne—to bed. Oh, he’ll root out her secrets, but on his own terms.
Caught up in a tangled web of deceit and betrayal, Angel trusts no one—certainly not alpha-cocky, cunning Will Berwick. First he’s hostile, then he’s charming. Why? What’s he hiding? With her life on the line, she needs to know. Preferably without losing her heart in the process.
This is the third novel in this series and I had previously read the second one, Hard to Forget, and found it an enthralling 5* read so I jumped at the chance to read this one and it was just as great IMHO!
Special Agent Will Berwick is the leader of the secret Black Ops Assassin squad, based at T... ...more
Will Berwick and the frosty Angel Treherne first meet as patient and psychotherapist, until Will, after months of medical leave, is tasked with a honey trap for the good doctor and her apparent deception where her missing brother’s concerned. But Angel is as stubbornly arctic, and extremely smart... ...more
Read the full review, including memorable tweetable quotes, on GraveTells: http://bit.ly/GTreview-HardToProtect-Black (live on March 30, 2017)
Hard To Protect is just delightful, a romantic suspense that teases and stalks and feasts in all the right ways. And, aside from the romance between Will... ...more
My first read by this author and I must admit to being amazed. I was drawn in immediately. The blurb got me but the flow, build, maintenance of keeping me turning page after page had me hooked. I fell hard for this one sexy hot special agent. I take each new author and treat them with an open bla... ...more
Hard to Protect is the third book in the ‘Hard to’ series by Incy Black and I, for one, have not been able to wait to get my hands on this book.
Will Berwick, leader of the Assassins at The Cube, a plausibly deniable secret team hidden deep within British Intelligence is given the unenviable task... ...more
I have a soft spot for Will, he's already been through so much and copped a lot of flack. Though this is the third book in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone, as can the previous two, but if you read Hard to Forget and Hard to Hold first you get more Will. And who wouldn't want mor... ...more
Thoroughly Entertaining – five stars
Hard to Protect is the third book in Incy Black’s fast-paced, sexy romantic suspense ‘Hard To’ series. To be honest, from the moment Will Berwick was introduced in book two (Hard to Forget) I’ve been waiting for him to get his own story and Hard to Protect does... ...more
I was really excited to start reading Hard To Protect. I've read the others in this series and I know this author has a way of writing that makes you remember. You remember the characters and the excitement you get when you read her books. This was very much still true with this installment of th... ...more
Loved this book, complex but real characters and a storyline that kept me turning the pages.
I've been eagerly awaiting book 3 in the Hard To.... Series and this time Will Berwick is on the frontline, cricket bat and all!
A leading member of the secret Government black ops assassin team, Will is as... ...more
Take 1 attractive smart man + 1 attractive smart woman + a dash of conflict = BOOM!
Or in the case of Mrs Doubtfire "Brace yourself Effie!" because you are in for a rollercoaster ride...
I don't want to dwell too much on the plot because plenty of you have already done that, but this book captures... ...more
Wow, what a sexy, action-packed, suspenseful read! I loved this third installment in Ms. Black's Black Ops Heroes series. Will and Angel were HOT together!
I found Will sexy as hell. He's an operative on the edge: emotionally and physically, and the author does a great job of illustrating that wi... ...more
Although this is the 3rd book of the series, it's the first one I've read as well as the first Incy Black novel, but I look forward to not only reading the first two books, but waiting for more! While each book is it's own standalone story, they revolve around the black ops within the B... ...more
This was only my second book by this author, and it was very different from the first one and not quite what I expected at first. I wasn't sure I liked Will or Angel in the beginning. They were both abrasive and emotionally locked down. As the story progresses though, they began to chip away at e... ...more
I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review. I'd rate this just into four and a half stars.
At last! The third volume in the series Hard to... we finally get to read Will Berwick's story and he's going to have a world of trouble with his heroine Dr Angel Treherne. This story does... ...more
WOW just WOW.
I knew from reading Incy's previous books that i was going to like this book,i didn't just like this book i LOVED it,but i did not expect how this story unfolded for the hot Will Berwick.He has taken on a case where he is a honey trap to get information from Dr Treherne about here br... ...more
Sometimes Will's logic is just hard to understand, “nope,” he interrupted, arms folded across his chest. “I had you locked up so I couldn’t eff you, because I sure as h*** wanted to.” I totally agree with Angel its hard to get comfortable if simething keeps poking you:
“You’ve got an erection the... ...more
This book took me by total surprise. Not fully knowing what to expect, if I had an expectation, it blew it out of the water. This is one insanely good book. My first book by this author, won't be the last.
This series takes place in England.
Will is a Black Operative who is still on recoup leave h... ...more
AH and aw in equal measures. Firstly AH because this the long awaited third book in the Hard To series featuring Incy Black’s own special Black ops. Aw, because she says trilogy although I hope that the exciting Freya Dervish will feature somewhere along the line in another book. No pressure ther... ...more
I have been looking forward to this book for months. It doesn't disappoint. The story moves at a cracking pace, but the best thing for me is Ms Black's voice. It is snarky, and unique, and I love the way she depicts the characters! Fabulous tension that will keep you reading. Five stars from me! ...more
Will is Black Ops, used to doing what he has to do to get the job done. When he is told he needs to seduce his former psychologist that he had been mandated to see after an injury, he decides he might just enjoy giving her a little taste of revenge.
‘But Angel? What of? The bloody polar ice caps?’... ...more
Special Agent Will Berwick can't believe the tricky assignment he's been tasked with, which he's not allowed to refuse. Seducing the woman he's dubbed the Ice Queen isn't going to be easy, but he isn't above using any means necessary to get the information he needs from her. However, he never exp... ...more
Dr. Angel Treherne has trained herself to never show weakness, which makes people describe her as the Ice Queen. They don't know what she's overcome, nor the guilt she carries, but one thing is for certain, she would do anything to protect her brother. Special Agent Will Berwick has been forced i... ...more
I was lucky enough to have received an ARC of Hard To Protect from Incy Black, this past week, in return for my unbiased review.
This is the first book I have read of Incy Black. It will not be the last.
From the first page I was intrigued, and curious to read on to try to get a firm grip on the h... ...more
This was a deep, thought-provoking book about the horrors of childhood trauma and the effects of war (both foreign and domestic) on the human psyche. I experienced so many emotions right alongside the characters, whether it was Angel, Will, or one of their family members, it opened up all my sens... ...more
When I saw this book at Netgalley I did some recon and found there are 2 more books in this series (from 2014) and they all had glowing reviews. So, I took a chance and clicked request. I have read the other 2 books first and wow, can this author write!
I especially enjoyed the second book about J... ...more
