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..
My Opinion 5 STARS
This was another scorcher from Laura Kaye.
Both the characters and the back story have such depth, you could very much wonder if this was a true story, even though we know its not.
Nick is the ultimate in sexy. An ex special forces man who is also a tattoo artist with a kind and loyal heart. It is not only an injury that causes him pain, but betrayal from his commander that he had trusted. I would love to gets my hands on this man thats for sure.
Becca is also a very strong individual. Its nice to have a female character than falls to pieces when things fall apart around her. When she needs to she can put everything aside and focus on what she needs to even if she is scared. The chemistry between both Nick and Becca was undeniably hot.
The other members of the Hard Ink team are also awesome. Jeremy is a cool brother and has a good sense of humour. The other members of Nicks team are a good bunch of guys even if they look intimidating and it was good to see the familiarity and loyalty they showed each other when they needed to, even if there was hostility between them at first.
I must admit, I'm gutted that I have waited so long to read this awesome-sauce book.
