Tall, dark, and lethal...

Trouble just walked into Nicholas Rixey's tattoo parlor. Becca Merritt is warm, sexy, wholesome — pure temptation to a very jaded Nick. He's left his military life behind to become co-owner of Hard Ink Tattoo, but Becca is his ex-commander's daughter. Loyalty won't let him turn her away. Lust has plenty to do with it too.

With her brother presumed kidnapped, Becca needs Nick. She just wasn't expecting to want him so much. As their investigation turns into all-out war with an organized crime ring, only Nick can protect her. And only Becca can heal the scars no one else sees.

Desire is the easy part. Love is as hard as it gets. Good thing Nick is always up for a challenge...

Hard as it Gets by Laura Kaye is a fantastic book one in the Hard Ink series.

The image the author paints of Nick; our main character, is a drop dead sexy, tattooed & ripped Adonis. I can picture him in my mind… His dragon tattoo lithe and magnificent spreading out across his back and dipping beneath the waistband of his jeans…
Oh yeah, you’ll love Nick.

Ex-Miltary hottie,Nicholas Rixey, and the dire circumstances that bring him face to face with the daughter, Becca Merritt, of his prior CO. Trouble followed her when she walked into Nick’s tattoo parlor; she had no idea what she was getting into. No idea that Nick was the one person that could help save her brother, clarify her doubts regarding her father’s past and steal away her heart. Filled with action, adventure, heat and pure sex on a stick hot males. The first edition in the Hard Ink series “checks all the boxes on the kinda books I love to read.” A must read.

A very quick read, full of action, special ops, sexy soldiers and sexual tension.
It ended with the situation unresolved, so now I’m dying to know what happens next!
