Hard As It Gets

A Hard Ink Novel

OMG hang onto your panties. This is a fast and thrilling start to a new series that has me seriously hooked. I’m assuming there will be five books total and personally can’t wait. The first half of the book is dedicated to the back-story of Nick and his brothers-in-arms. Totally needed, as well as the disgust and depression Nick felt about how he handled the aftermath. It defines him and he doesn’t like it. When Becca approaches him for help she shines like a beacon. Is it any wonder these two fall in love so quickly?

There is no fated mates story line, just plain old chemistry at its finest. I enjoyed the lack of denial on both parties’ part and Becca’s attitude when it came to getting what she wanted. A woman with values and morals, she snags Nick and gains the respect of his brothers-in-arms as well. In addition to the mystery and sexual tension there are also moments of dry humor that had me laughing out loud; that’s my definition of a good book.

I can’t wait for this series to continue as the author did a phenomenal job writing Nick as an alpha without all the side effects that usually accompany that character. Her description of the other men of the unit has me panting in anticipation. A must read.

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...
