(Hard Ink #1)Blurb:
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…
OMG!!! This Book is Amazing!!!! And can I say it’s my first from Laura? LOL Though I have known her in name and as a part of the Avon crew for awhile now. This is the first book in her Hard Ink series and it’s super sexy and Hard! Nick Nick Nick….Swoon~
Nick is brought into hell when he met Becca, the daughter of his murdered and ex-Commander in the military, as she walked into his tattoo parlor. With his anger of betrayal fumming against Becca’s father for putting his life and his men’s life in danger he wants nothing to do with her. Becca on the other hand didn’t know that she was carrying secrets of his discharged from the military or that he would be the answer to her missing brother. Never the least they both didn’t know what would become of them.
He never thought that a woman can penetrate his hard shell and make him feel protective over her safety as much as he felt for Becca. He’s an ultimate alpha hero who’s in control and knows how to handle a bad situation. Though handling a mere girl proved to be a challenge. Oh and he’s broken~ sighs, don’t you just want mend him? Plus, he knows when he’s wrong and knows how to apologize.
Becca didn’t know she would have the strength strong enough to go through a roller coaster ride through lost, pain, secrets, and love. She wasn’t that typical heroine. She was strong but not naive, bold but not overly dramatic, and she didn’t control our hero! Well, she did but not in a way where she was trying to over rule him, if you know what I mean.
Through out the whole book it was filled with steam and more steam between the interactions of Nick and Becca as they raced through secrets, pain, betrayal, danger, and revelations.
The details of the characters were amazing. Laura really have an eye for hot man and their body parts. She even went as far as to give us sneak peeks at Nick’s comrades. They will have their own stories told too in the series and I can’t wait to see what troubles come their way. The next book is Hard As You Can.
This was filled with lots of suspense, action, sexiness, and very hard and hot rage. LOL And I love lots of sexual tension and play!!! But not only that, it also brings you into the life if their family and friends and just bring you closer to knowing who they are around those that care for them and vis versa. I’m a total new fan and can’t wait to see what’s up for these Hard Ink Boys.
