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.

I give this novel 4 stars!

“Hard As It Gets” is the first installment in the “Hard Ink Novel” series. It has not a single boring part in it.

This book is full of hot alpha males that are special ops military that know how to satisfy every avenue possible. After being at odds with one another for years, this group of men get back together to assist a woman in need of a mystery solved.

Suddenly, Becca, who had no idea she would feel so connected to Nick Rixey, has to battle with her feelings still doing whatever it takes to find her missing brother. In return, Nick Rixey fights his feelings towards Becca and rejects her. Even a disciplined man with a strong military background cannot fight his growing love and loyalty to Becca.

This book keeps you enthralled from start to finish! I could not put it down and why would I even try? You will feel the same.
