[Kame's Review]: "Marine for Hire"

Marine for Hire by Tawna Fenske
Publisher: Entangled: Lovestruck (February 3, 2014)
Series: Front and Center, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

She thought she’d sworn off military men for good…

Sam Kercher is every inch a wickedly hot Marine. Tall. Sexy. Lethal. When his best friends call in a favor, Sam is forced to face an entirely new line of duty—playing nanny for their newly divorced sister and her squirming seven-month-old twin boys. If Sam can dissemble an M16 in his sleep, diaper duty should be a cakewalk…right?

Unfortunately, Operation Nanny isn’t quite that simple. Sheridan has sworn off overbearing military men, so Sam must protect her from her dirtbag ex without revealing just how much he has in common with her brothers. Or that he’s been ordered not to touch her. Ever. Problem is, Sheri’s one hell of a gorgeous woman, capable of making this hard-bodied marine even harder. And Sam wants her bad.

Protect the girl. Care for the babies. Hide his identity. And keep his hands off. But even the most disciplined Marine has weaknesses...and Sheridan is one Sam might not be able to resist.

Kame's Review:

Sam has had a crush on Sheri for years, but she is a good friend's sister. Then the friend asks Sam to pose as a nanny to help protect Sheri - but keep his hands off her. Simple right?

Sam was my favorite character. I enjoyed his interaction with the twins and his attempt to keep the house running made me laugh at times. Sheri sort of wore on me as she was obsessed with what a "normal mother" was. As a mother of twins I will say the life with seven month old twins was spot on, and brought many happy memories to me.

Plot was good and simple to follow. I hate to say this - there was almost too many sexy scenes for me; I wanted more plot. Sheri's BFF and her brother seem to have some possibilities for a future book. Between that and the great Hawaiian setting I will definitely check out book 2.

3 1/2 STARS!

Thanks for the review, Kame! :) Too much sexy times? Say it ain't so! But if there wasn't enough plot, I can understand why you'd say that. Here's hoping that the next book has a bit more to it, but even so Marine for Hire sounds like a good read!
