New Release: Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye (Review)

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

My Thoughts: 

I got a chance to read Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye. I have to say the plot was pretty good. I love the idea of these ex-military guys with a  chip on their shoulders, because they were a scapegoat for a cover up. Then they end up working with their ex-commander's daughter to help her find her brother. 

Poor Becca, she really doesn't have a clue what she just walked into, but all she knows her brother is in danger. The only clue she has to go with is visit this guy by the name of Nick Rixey. When they first meet, he basically shuts her down, because of the bad blood between her father and himself. Good thing Nick listened to his gut instead, and basically decides to help her. As the story progress, Nick realizes that he needs help and basically calls in his buddies. So, we see the start of the story. 

Yes, it's a little slow at the beginning, but sometimes a story needs to build especially when it's a new series. In Hard As It Gets we are laying the ground work for future books. There is that suspense on what's going on. All we know that these guys got treated like dirt cause of their commanding officers decisions. However, his son had stumble upon some weird stuff, which gets him into trouble. Yet, the information is just the tip of iceberg and could possibly get this guys redeem. 

Yes, there is a romance that builds between Nick and Becca. Yet, some secrets might break apart this budding relationship. What it boils down to we have a budding relationship and a mystery that needs to be solve. I can't wait to see what new things will popup in the next book and how it will draw us closer to rectify a wrong. So, if you are looking to start a new series and have a thing with ex-military guys and tats, you might have found your book in Hard As It Gets
