I’ve gotta say — this is a highly enjoyable series. I’ve loved getting to know all the bad-assed men and women involved in the Hard Ink world. Jeremy has always been a favorite of mine. He’s not military but his brother is and when his brother and his Special Forces team were in trouble, Jeremy didn’t hesitate to invite them into his home and his world. And he’s definitely got one of the best double entendre-filled t-shirt collections of any fictional character out there.

Jeremy falls for sweet, brilliant, introverted Charlie, who the team recently rescued from some rather vicious kidnappers. While Jeremy’s brother has always supported him, Charlie’s father refused to accept that his son is gay (arsehole). And, after his trauma (getting kidnapped and having your finger chopped off definitely falls under a “traumatic” heading) and the danger they’re all still in, Charlie’s a little tentative about getting into a relationship. However, their passion for one another can’t be denied (Nope. Not denied on the tattoo chair or up against a wall or in a bed…) and, as they explore one another’s smokin’ hot bodies (tats…especially computer nerd tats *swoon*), they fall hard for one another. For a short novella, there’s some serious smexytimes and romance to be had. *fans self*

This is *not* a book to read as a standalone. Of course, you can but you’ll be missing out on the backstory involving Jeremy’s brother, the team and their commanding officer, why Charlie was kidnapped as well as some fantastic romances between the team and the strong-willed women who win their hearts. Truly, it’s no wonder author Laura Kaye’s Hard as You Can (Hard Ink #2) won the RT Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Romantic Suspense of 2014.

  1. This is probably the one I’m most interested in. I’m not sure about the sex on the page stuff (assuming it’s there) but the gay romance part is interesting to me. I usually read it in YA though so it’s clean. Not that I’m squeamish about the ‘gay’ part of it but any sex on page isn’t really my favorite. But I can always skim!

  2. This series sounds delish! Though I haven’t read it yet. I’m always up for hot tattooed people. However, this cover is just so awkward to me. The angle of the guy in fronts head, and the way the other one is in shadows behind. YOu’d think with two hot guys getting it on, the cover would reflect that a little more? But sounds like the insides more than make up for it.
