REVIEW: Hardcore Vol. 2 by Staci Hart

** Part two of a three part serial **

The choice is steep: Stay on the ledge and steal Van's painting or take the leap and sacrifice her sister. It's another decision in a long line that she's had to make in her life, and though it's easy to make, it's impossible to execute.

Jade won't let Cory go until she gets what she wants, but the price for Cory is high. It's never been hard to steal, to lie, but Van changed all the rules. It was the last thing she wanted to do to him. But as much as that choice is agony, there's really only one to make.

Betrayal and pain. Love and loss. Decisions and consequences. The edge Cory walks is razor sharp and sky high, but she can't look down. Not until she makes it to the other side.

Expected publication: February 24th 2015

Shel: I deliberately avoiding reading Volume 2 of this series for a while. Why? Because I knew, just knew, it would be impossible to put down and I'd immediately want to read Volume 3. I was right. I want Volume 3 now.

Court: I agree. I can't wait for the final installment, because this series is so rockin' I devoured it. We devoured it. Hear me clearly: devoured. It is so good. There's action, and angst, and sex. The parkour aspect is still just as present and fun. 

Shel: I have no idea how in the hell Staci Hart is going to be able to end this in one final volume because I'm nowhere near ready for this story to end, but I have every confidence that she'll do something amazing. Court: I keep trying to figure out where things will go...but I can't! And that is good. And bad. Because I am so nervous for how things ended. I mean, Holy crap you guys. HOLY CRAP! Things ended after an intense many pages, but they were awesomely intense. Awesomely isn't a word is it. Crap.

Shel: In volume 2 of this series, poor Cory has to make a choice between two craptastic options and really? we all know she's going to choose her sister. What I wasn't prepared for is what happened next. Court: Damn. I know. I wasn't either. I love Cory's character still so much, because she is so loyal. She weighs all options, but she also doesn't like to be pushed around. She's in a corner. How will she get out!!! 

Shel: I loved what Staci Hart plotted for Cory. I also loved that Morgan, Erin, and Cher were TEAM CORY. I felt awful for Van and I loved how Jill was exactly the kind of sister I wanted her to be. And Jade? Well, I have a feeling she's not quite finished with this story yet...but what a fucking bitch. Court: I do love the girls she lives with. Except for Jade. You're right. That fucking bitch needs pushed off a building when they're jumping around doing what they do. I love Van and Jill, because they're the perfect goodness to all of Cory's self imposed badness. 

Shel: This novella series has been fun. It's something fresh and unexpected and I am now trying to carve out time to go back and read all of Staci Hart's other works...her stories are engrossing and make the entire world disappear when I start them; I cannot read what she writes next. Court: Yes! What did I just say to you earlier..."I'm so glad you found this author." So, everyone. Check out Staci Hart. Her writing is wonderful, her characters are engaging, and I too canot wait to read the rest of what she's got....because we do love, love, love what she's got! 

About this author:
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.

From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.
