Release Day Blitz: Hard as It Gets by Laura Kaye
Book 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...
Laura's Review: Tall, dark, and lethal, indeed! I was sold when I read the blurb and saw the cover and the book didn't disappoint either! Becca has no idea what she's getting involved in when she goes to Hard Ink Tattoo in an attempt to help her missing brother. Nick Rixey is more than a little jaded from his not-so-happy time in the military, but a sense of duty and a search for redemption keeps him from turning away from Becca. Immediately their involvement turns more serious than either of them knew or wanted. And from that moment, I was pulled into a gripping, suspenseful novel that was much edgier and grittier than I expected. But, I loved it! And of course, no book with a cover like this would get away without having some intense and steamy chemistry! This was the first full-length novel by Laura Kaye I've read, but it won't be the last!
Hard As It Gets: 4.5/5 stars
Note: I received an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review.
