This is the third book in the newest series Divemasters from Jayne Rylon and I was excited to read this one. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books so was anxious to see what happens next. This is Tosin Ellis and jeweller, Kahori Akama story, and what a story it is. Tosin is the last of the single Divemasters, a status he has no plans to relinquish. However, all that changes when he tags along with Archer and Miguel as Archer goes in search of a designer for the ring he plans to give Waverley. It is then that Tosin is knocked for six by the stunningly sensual Kahori. The attraction between Tosin and Kahori is electrifying, with both trying their best not to be too obvious at first, however they are soon overwhelmed by the passion they feel for each other. Tosin knows immediately that she is the one for him but Kahori is certain that it will be a fling and then she will be alone again. When Kahori opens up about her extremely limited sexual experience at a club, Tosin realises his work it cut out for him, although Kahori is naturally submissive (although not obvious to her) a horrible experience has made her extremely wary of the lifestyle. Tosin, like all the other Divemasters is an alpha Dom with a heart of gold. In fact I will admit I fell more in love with him than Archer and Miguel. The very last thing she needs to find out about is the Clubroom on the boat; and yes you guessed it that is what she stumbles upon. The chemistry between Tosin and Kahori was smoking hot and the scenes together simply sizzled. When trouble lands at Kahori’s feet and she is attacked, Tosin comes to her rescue. When her father disappears at the same time as she is attacked, Kahori fears the worst; it is up to Tosin and his friends to help her solve the riddle of what is happening, her father’s disappearance and why she was attacked. If I closed my eyes, I could almost envisage that I was in The Cook Islands as the descriptions of the places they visit came alive to me whilst I was reading. I really felt at times that I could see what they were seeing. Ms Rylon’s real life love of diving obviously plays an important part in this series. This book to me was probably the most suspenseful of the three, it had it all, romance, hot and racy scenes, action and at times heartbreak. This is well worth your reading and it can be read as a stand-alone, although if I were you I would get the previous two books as well. As far as I am aware this is a 3 book series, but I love it so much I do hope that Ms. Rylon decides to extend it. Ms. Rylon brought the series to a close and tied up the loose ends nicely, however having said that I would most certainly like to read more about Banks and Marta along with Captain Alex and the doctor. This is a great book and series and one I highly recommend.

Going Hard was the third and final book in a trilogy by Jayne Rylon. Tosin and Sabine's story was the perfect ending to this trilogy. If you enjoy a well written book with romance, suspense, and beautiful descriptions of scenery on land and sea, this is the series for you. Jayne is a great storyteller that puts just the right amount of romance and suspense into any book she writes. Her descriptions of the scenery and all of the sea creatures are so accurate, you actually feel like you are there with her characters. I really enjoyed this entire series and look forward to more from Jayne Rylon.

“Going Hard” is the third book in Jayne Rylon’s “Divemasters” series, and it was my favorite. This book focuses on Tosin, a newly-minted billionaire/scuba instructor trying to decide if he wants to stay carefree and single or settle down like his best friends, and Kahori, a jeweler trying to balance the need to see more of the world and her family that lives on a small island. This was a quick and fun, sexy story. While I liked the first two books in the series, I thought this third book flowed more fluidly, and I really loved the plot twist. *I was given an advanced copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

Going Hard has intense immediate attraction, murder, and sex with an alpha male to dtool over. A light summer read that doesn't make you think too hard.

Lace’s Review: Going Hard is the perfect ending to the amazing Dive Masters Series by Jayne Rylon. We finally get Tosin’s story. Tosin lives life pretty fast. A deep thinker and an Alpha male to boot; it was nice to see that a woman could not only trip up this fun-loving sex god; but also make him stumble a few times before regaining his stride. Tosin captured my attention in book and while all three dabble in the BDSM realm, I feel Tosin is most dominate of the three overall. Kahori is an artist of the sea, taking what God gives us and turning it into beauty. The way Ms. Rylon described her pieces made me wish I had a photo them; especially the ring, bracelets and earrings. Kahori has been dealt a blow discovering deceit among the ones she had entrusted with all she held dear. What will she do now? With her life in jeopardy, will Kahori ever get to know Tosin and what he creates inside her soul or will this be the end? There is no question about the chemistry between Tosin and Kahori. It smacks in the face the minute their eyes connect. What I found interesting is the non-sexual bond that Tosin and Kahori shared. Both from different walks of life, but yet connected on so many levels. I often wondered if Kahori understood how truly submissive she really was? I have to thank Jayne Rylon for the way Tosin’s past came to light. Although it was a harsh reality, in the end it made him the man he is today. Will Tosin be able to heal Kahori’s heart after the betrayal her family has caused? Knowing Tosin, anything is possible. I know I say this in every review I write on the Dive Masters series, but Tosin could be my favorite for his charm alone. Miguel’s intensity drew me toward him while Archie’s lost boy heart stole my heart, but dang it Ms. Rylon, I would have loved to see Banks at least whimper a little for Marta’s affections and don’t even get me started with good ole Captain Alex even though the ending of this book was *PRICELESS**LOL!* The women are just as fiery and Kahori fits in nicely with them. Every character – both good and bad – gave Going Hard a strong influx of drama, intensity and a whole lot of sensual chemistry to keep the stories nice and heated. Rated 5 Ravens and a Recommended Read by Lace!

As the last lone wolf of The Divemaster, Tosin Ellis doesn’t plan on partnering up anytime soon. Then his friend Archer commissions an engagement ring for his fiancée… Jeweler Kahori Akama is sensual, intriguing, and happy to accept Tosin’s help sourcing the black pearls she uses in her popular pieces. As their relationship goes from professional to personal, Tosin also learns Kahori’s family in under the threat of a blackmailer, someone intent on ruining her father’s resort business to lay claim to its valuable property. Tosin never expected to find a single woman that could slake his sexual appetites, but Kahori surrenders to her raw and primal urges with the natural power of a typhoon strong enough to blow even a veteran sailor far off course. Once he’s experienced loving in the eye of the storm, he can’t imagine being satisfied by less. Once more, the crew of The Divemaster will do what it takes to protect their own. Especially Tosin, who realizes Kahori’s heart just may be his home. Review: I received an advance copy of this book, but because of other books I was scheduled to read I was not able to get to this one until after the release date. I was chopping at the bit to get to it and once I did I devoured it in literally an hour. I don't want this series to end. If it has to this is the perfect way to end. Tosin and Kahori are just what I have come to expect in a couple in this series; tough, smart, caring and sexy. The mystery and action in the story had me tense and waiting to see what happened next. The sexy, as in every one of her books had my blood a pumpin'. As, always Ms. Rylon's descriptions made me feel like I was there with the characters. The ending was very satisfying as the end of the book and the series. 4.5Stars *I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

First I have to say I'm sad to see this series end because I so loved it. Now I've been anticipating this one because I knew Tosin was going to be my favorite and I was right. I devoured this one. I could hardly put it down. The description of the island painted such a beautiful colorful picture in my mind. One of my favorite parts is the way Tosin treated Kahori. I just love the way he was completely smitten with her. This book took some twists and turns I didn't expect and one I did.Over all for me this book was a big winner that I highly recommend.

Received this book free for an honest review. Ride the wave, baby... OMG! What a trip. I love this story. It will make you laugh, cry and want to beat the hell out of somebody. But don't fret, the tears at the end are happy ones. It's been a long road to happiness and these people deserved bit of it!

Story was predictable. Not long enough and lacked depth. Don't bother buying

I received a copy of Going Hard in return for an honest review. This book is a great conclusion to the Divemasters series. The exotic locale of the Cook Islands in the South Pacific is the perfect setting for this exciting, well-crafted, steamy romantic suspense story. Tosin is the last of the trio of best friends to find love. He is instantly smitten when he meets Kahori, the beautiful Polynesian jeweler, on the island of Rarotonga. When her life is in danger, he and the other divemasters band together to protect her and Tosin realizes he has finally found his perfect partner in love. This is a great read in an excellent series and I am very happy with the way it ended.

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review. Going Hard is the third and final book in the Divemasters series and can be read as a standalone. Jayne Rylon has given her readers everything they want and so much more. This book has a great mix of adventure, angst, betrayal, bad guys, mystery, suspense, hot sex, love, and a great HEA.

Sexy, suspenseful, hot - I loved it! Going Hard is the third and final book in the Divemasters series. I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I haven’t read the first two books yet but because of that I can tell you without reservation that this book stands alone with no problem. Characters from the first two books make appearances in this one but Ms. Rylon does an excellent job of giving the reader any background they need from the first two books; I didn’t feel like I missed a thing. (Note to self: read the first two books! If they are half as sexy and good as this one I will love them!) Tosin Ellis and his friends have been at sea aboard the Divemaster for four thousand miles and he is looking forward to being on land for a bit. He and his partners, Miguel and Archer, are going ashore to find dinner but Archer wants to visit the Punanga Nui Market first so he can look for something special for his girlfriend. When Tosin first sets his eyes on Kahori Akama he is smitten. Kahori Akama loves her work as a custom jewelry designer and her home on Aituataki. She used to travel some, showing and selling her designs but a bad experience has kept her closer to home for quite a while. She is intrigued by Tosin’s accent and his stunning looks. When she realizes that he is also intrigued by her she wants to explore their feelings. I loved the relationships between all of the characters in this book. Ms. Rylon’s writing made me feel at home with them and made me wish I had friends like them. While this story has some BDSM elements to it they are mild and not the focus of the story. The book has lots of hot sexy time, suspense and intrigue set in an exotic location. For a novella length story I thought that the characters were developed nicely. While some people don’t like books with insta-love elements I don’t mind them at all in stories of shorter lengths. This was a quick and easy read for me; just right for an evening of reading pleasure. I thought the ending of this book was perfect. Anyone who has read the first two books should be very satisfied with the ending for this series. ARC generously provided by the author. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****

I absolutely love the entire Divemaster series and the third book did not disappoint. Tosin is the last single Divemaster, and Kahori is jeweler from a fairly remote island tribe. Tosin falls hard and fast the first time he sees Kahori, and she quickly takes the plunge with him. I love that Tosin didn’t seem to hesitate in going after what he wanted, and wasn’t going to let it go once he grabbed it. The highlight of this book for me is the interactions between all of the previous characters, and adding more detail to secondary characters I didn’t even know I loved! Jayne Rylon never disappoints with the sex scenes, and she certainly didn’t this time either. You need to read this book. Actually, you need to read this whole series!!!!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.... ********************MUST READ THE OTHER BOOKS MAJOR SPOILER ALERT*************** I truly love these books!!! Tosin especially. I am so happy to ready his book and watch it feel like it unfolds in my head OK Jayne writes very descriptively. They are somewhere in the South Pacific. and Archer has a quest to meet this specific jewelry designer and Tosin follows hoping for a snack. of course nothing can go as planned around the Divemasters not even a simple buying trip.Luckily or not they have to meet up later and pick up the order. The Natives are restless around newcomers and Sabine was hoping to talk to the locals about a grow program. Ummm. Things were good then it all went to crap. Kahori got attacked which is unheard of in this area and now her Dad is missing. Tosin wanted to move her to the ship but thought it too obvious until reinforcements arrived. Can Tosin capture Kahori trust and love? What happened to her Dad?
