New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, brings you a romance about love, forgiveness, and living every day to the fullest.
I know finding and signing a military vet to the agency is a long shot--but it’ll be good press just letting him try out. That’s what I tell my family, rather than admit I can’t get the letter he wrote us five years ago out of my head.
But what I tell the bartender in his hometown is a lie. I know veterans protect each other. So I pretend to be a graduate student.
Sparks. Flame. Fire. I accidentally got in too deep.
I didn’t expect to develop feelings for Gunner Camden.
And there’s no way I can admit to my lies now, not without destroying what we share. So I’ll keep faking it.
There are two versions of me: before, and after deployment.
Back then I was a screwup kid. I’d lie, cheat, and steal my way out of everything. My only love was baseball.
After I started fighting, I found out there had been another path for me. One that involved my dream. But by then I had seen too much.
The old me was dead, so I put my dreams to rest, too.
Then Chase Kinkade walks into my bar and reminds me that life is meant to live. No regrets.
Fresh. Happy. Hopeful. I can start to see a new dream, with her.
But sometimes things are too good to be true… and dishonesty is the one thing I can’t forgive.

Hard to Lose delivers all the heat, swoon, and joy that Bromberg has delivered throughout this series! Chase and Gunnar were easy to love for sure!
Now, I’m going to start with my issue because the book starts with it too! Both of them are not honest. So, I can already tell that the drama that will inevitably come later is all because they lied. I really hate that. However, I adore this series, so I just prepared myself and continued reading.
I really liked Chase and Gunnar. Gunnar is very sweet and I really liked him with Chase. I am trash for heroes who are 100% head over heels with the heroine. It’s just so swoony. Chase is a great heroine as well and while I didn’t like the dishonestly, I got why she had to do it. None of her lies were huge, life altering things, but knowing how Gunnar feels about liars, I could see the bomb explosion coming quick.
Regardless of the oncoming drama and angst, Hard to Lose is so worth the pain! Gunnar and Chase will enchant you and this book will win your heart!
