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:
"TOP PICK! If you're looking for danger, gritty action, and sizzling passion, then Kaye has just the book and the series for you." ~RT Book Reviews Magazine
As Jeremy deals with the recent attack on his brother's team and the destruction of a good part of Hard Ink, he's also watching Charlie and Charlie is watching him. There's a definite attraction between the two men and each has their own reason why they aren't following their heart. It's not just physical attraction either, it's more, so they aren't able to deny their feelings for each other for very long.
Hard To Be Good takes part in a more quiet time in the overall story, when the team is regrouping after the last attack and looking for new clues in the mystery of who set them up. I really liked that, because the spotlight was on the developing relationship between Jeremy and Charlie which made it so easy for this reader to fall in love with both of these characters. There are some ups and downs to their coming together, but in the end, it was great to see them overcome their own hang-ups and fully accept their feelings for each other. The writing is smooth, the emotions finely detailed and I just loved the story of these two men.
This might be my favorite book of the series so far. Recommended.
