TB reviews Hardcore Vol. 3 by Staci Hart

** Part three of a three part serial **

It’s time. Time to tell the truth. Time to face her past and step into her future. Starting with Van. Cory will wait to the beat of the ticking clock for him to come back. To see what she’s done and make the final judgment. As much as she holds onto the small hope that he’ll still want her, she’s ready for rejection, ready for the pain. As ready as she can be, at least. It’s time to make things right, not only with Van, but with Jill. With Jade. With everything. No more running.

Hardcore is now my new favorite serial!

All too often I find myself disappointed in the final installment of serials, they tend to be rushed and lacking to me. But that isn't the case in Hardcore Volume 3. No, this volume delivers the perfect conclusion to Cory's story.

In this volume of Hardcore, it's time for Cory to lay it all out there to Van, everything about her past and the painting. No matter his reaction to her truth, he's made a difference in her life. She wants out of the crime and to live a more honest life; that also means coming clean to her sister, Jill, about where the money came from to pay for her school. I loved seeing Cory's determination to turn her life around and the fact that it was something she was committed to regardless of whether Van forgave her or not. Can you tell I'm trying to avoid giving away his reaction? I will say, he had a very honest response in the beginning.

As for everything else going on in the plot, meaning Jade, well she got what was coming to her. Cory's roommates/friends were so supportive through everything Cory was dealing with, I loved them. This book isn't without its ups and downs and angst but everything gets wrapped up nicely and it's done so without being rushed. It's all set at a satisfying pace and the ending couldn't have been more perfect. Staci Hart knows how to write an intense, emotional, and enthralling story making this serial one I highly recommend!

"Sometimes there is no right or wrong. Sometimes it's all wrong, and the best you can do is to decide just how bad it's going to be."
