Five dishonored soldiers.
Former Special Forces.
One last mission.
These are the men of Hard Ink.

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 . . .

Apparently, it's just me but I couldn't get into this series at all. I guess I was spoiled by the characters in the Ride series but I just didn't find these characters as interesting. I made it 2/3 of the way through but still didn't care who did what so I gave up.

I enjoyed this Book - lots of excitement

Although fairly clich├ęd as these kind of alpha-male, feisty-heroine, navy seal, romantic suspense novels go, I really enjoyed this! I also really like the instant-attraction stories - and this is definitely one!

Action packed, steamy, sweet and with a (sort of) believable romance (are they ever that believeable?), albeit with a ridiculous plot - this is a great read, and a great start to a new series!

I would highly recommend it, but I would also recommend reading this one first before reading book 2 in the series, Hard as You Can, as it looks like the overall mystery plot will be going through each book in the series.

A introduction, to a new series. Five dishonored soldiers determining on getting their honor back. They won't let anything or anyone get in their way. A balance of suspense , some action, a little romance, and some humorous scenes. this is Nickolas and Becca's story. Weak in some some spots. I think if there was more Action, and more challenge for the characters the book would have been a better read. I'll give this author another try with the next in the series.
