Author Laura Kaye had me hyperventilating from the beginning with the thrilling, alpha heroes of her Hard Ink Series!
Becca Merrit is on a mission. After having an argument with her computer wiz brother Charlie over what is believed to have been a conspiracy theory, Charlie has disappeared. Becca has reason to believe that her brother has been kidnapped and now time is running out. Becca knows there is no other man better suited to aid her in saving Charlie other than former Special Forces member Nick Rixey. A man like Nick however is a dangerous threat to Becca. All inked, all male and all hard Becca is going to have a hard time convincing Nick to aid her and even more difficult time convincing herself not fall in love with a man like Nick.
Nick Rixey knows that Becca is sexy, wholesome and everything that causes his blood to boil, but Nick has had enough of the Merritt family to last him a lifetime. Becca's father was Nick's former commander, a man that betrayed his unit leaving six men dead, others wounded and all of the military careers scattered within the long range of their ammunition. Getting involved with Becca is a mistake, but Nick is unable to let her go. Calling on his former unit Nick and his team set out to help Becca find her brother and clear their name. Killing is something Nick knows how to do well, sexual attraction and love is something that is all too new to Nick. Nick will have to find a balance between his true nature and the love that he has for a woman who is capable of being his only salvation.
This is novel is hot! I loved every minute of it! It may start off a bit slow, but the action and sex is well worth the wait!
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...
