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…


My Thoughts

Okay so this is going to be a short review as I am at work.

Jeremy, Jeremy, Jeremy….. What can I say I love him! He is so amazingly talented and I wish I could meet someone like him! His charisma pulled me in from the very first book. Laura Kaye keeps pulling me in with each book she writes. I need to tell you this novella was just amazing and such a quick and hot read. I don’t normally read m/m books but I really needed to see if Charlie and Jeremy were going to find some happy ever after.


I admire Charlie so much, after what he has been through it must be so hard but he is so strong. Thankfully Jeremy started pulling him out of his comfort zone he is the one that could get Charlie to smile and feel. Charlie is such an introvert just like me and he likes to observe so he does that a lot when it comes to Jeremy. He started having feelings for Jeremy but did not know how to show it and he was scared that Jeremy might push him away or their friendship might change after that.  Jeremy saw that Charlie needs a push so he decided to push him and thankfully that was a good choice.

If he never kissed Charlie for the first time then they would not have gone after each other and they would never have found out how much they like each other. Though Charlie nearly lost Jeremy because he is afraid what others might think of him being gay but they he noticed that he does not care because he hated not being near Jeremy.


In basic terms I loved this short novella I read it in less than an hour in one sitting position. I would recommend this series to everyone but I would easily reread this novel and let me tell you it was already a reread. 😛 I adore Charlie because he is just so sweet but I loved and adored Jeremy with his shirts and innuendos. I love him!  80e9e55dcc0b5a12ae8ec8c23b92a001
