Publisher's Summary

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 . . .

Soooo above my expectations

Could not stop listening. The plot is superior, characters are fleshed out and emotions are more realistic, interaction is believeable. This author knows that a lot of sitting around swearing and drinking an alpha male does not make. These guys were just gritty enough without losing touch with reality. I did not once roll my eyes during this book. I can not wait to get the next book. The narrator was superb. There wasnt one thing I didnt like about this book. Well done, I had been waiting for just this story. It is so TV or movie worthy.

Finally a woman who is strong & feminine.

If you could sum up Hard As It Gets in three words, what would they be?

Strong, steady, and powerful.

Nick was my favorite character, showing a man can be honest about feelings but not seem weak in any way.

Too many to pick one. Lets just say there are many in this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. I listened to this book all through the night until it ended, and then went back to listen again.

Sooooo good

Any additional comments?

Absolutely loved this audio. Becca's brother is missing and she goes to Nick for help. Nick was in the Special Forces with Becca's brother and part owns and works in a tattoo studio. They team up to try and find Becca's brother. Love, lust and intrigue. Thoroughly enjoyable with lots of sexual chemistry. <br/>
