Hard as it Gets by Laura Kaye

No, the theme isn't naked chests on books (though it does seem like it). We're reading romantic suspense with ex-military heroes.

Tall, dark, and lethal...

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...

*Hard as it Gets is the first in a series and available on Audible.

Intelligence: high. Body: hard. Mission: what no one else can do. 

It's been a year since ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly saw his wife Rachel alive. Now he's received an anonymous phone call claiming Rachel is alive. To find her, Ethan will have to doge bullets, cross a jungle, and risk falling captive to a deadly drug cartel that threatens his own demise.

*The Darkest Hour is the first in a series and is available on

    I got the books, but haven't read them! Not that that usually stops me from attending!! But I won't be there because it's Hannah's birthday and we're celebrating! I miss you guys and intend to be there next month....

    Tomorrow's actually my birthday (hadn't been thinking about that!) so I have some other plans and can't make it to the meeting. See you all next month, hopefully!

    I just noticed that one of our April picks, Hard as it Gets, is on sale for $1.99 for the Kindle today. I never would have noticed it if we hadn't been laughing at the cover at book club last week!
