Hard as it Gets by Laura Kaye Review
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...
Becca is a woman on a mission to find her brother. She will do whatever it takes to find him. When she goes to the Hard Ink tattoo shop to find a Mr. Rixey, she is disappointed that he won't help her. The only clue her brother left her was his name.
Nick is still dealing with his past that won't let go. When Becca walks into his life, he knows he should stay away, but he can't help himself.
This book is full of mystery and passion. I found myself having difficulty putting it down and walking away. I had to know what was going to happen next. The chemistry between Nick and Becca is amazing and all the supporting characters are just what they need. I am thrilled that the book didn't end in a cliffhanger, I couldn't have handled that. I am anxious to see what else happens with these characters in the next Hard Ink novel, hopefully coming out in March 2014. 5 out of 5!!
