BLURB: Hard Ink Tattoo owner Jeremy Rixey has taken on his brother’s stateside fight against the forces that nearly killed Nick and his Special Forces team a year before. Now, Jeremy’s whole world has been turned upside down—not the least of which by a brilliant, quiet blond man who tempts Jeremy to settle down for the first time ever. Recent kidnapping victim Charlie Merritt has always been better with computers than people, so when he’s drawn into the SF team’s investigation of his army colonel father’s corruption, he’s surprised to find acceptance and friendship—especially since his father never accepted who Charlie was. Even more surprising is the heated tension Charlie feels with sexy, tattooed Jeremy, Charlie’s opposite in almost every way. With tragedy and chaos all around them, temptation flashes hot, and Jeremy and Charlie can’t help but wonder why they’re trying so hard to be good.

Review:  I have been, without a doubt, a HUGE fan of the HARD INK series from the beginning. And with each installment I have fallen in love with it more and more. All of the characters are so special and their stories so heartfelt and real.The emotions and insight that Laura Kaye brings out through her words is an extraordinary talent that make reading her work a privilege. Jeremy and Charlie’s story may be a novella, but it is brimming with a strong love story that hands down, absolutely compliments the series in every way. Centralizing mainly on just the two of then and not the series plot, this story allows Jeremy and Charlie to be who they are and what they need and want to be. Not only to themselves, but to each other. While I usually don’t gravitate toward M/M books, I thought it was a great story in  its entirety.
