Release Blitz: Hard to be Good by Laura Kaye (ARC Review)
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…Praise for the Hard Ink Series:For Hard As You Can:"TOP PICK!

The first thing I will say is I have NEVER opened a book before and from the first sentence felt the intense chemistry and passion the way I did between Jeremy and Charlie. OMFG, it just flew off the pages and smacked me dead in the face. It was so electric!
This was a quick read, it was a little confusing at first, because I haven't read the other books in the series, but the author explained things well enough that I didn't feel lost for long. Really the story concentrated mostly on the relationship between Jeremy and Charlie.
This was a beautifully written story. I love when an author can make me feel, and feel I did. I felt the love these guys shared. The sex was not only hot and sexy, but sweet as well.
I know there is one more book in the series, but when I ️closed this book, I felt satisfied with the ending I got. I mostly read m/m, and if this author decides to write more, I'll be in line one clicking!
