ARC Review ~ Marine for Hire (A Front and Center Novel #1) by Tawna Fenske

Marine for Hire (A Front and Center Novel, #1)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: July 21st 2014

Publisher: Entangled Publishing (Lovestruck)

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 handsoff. But even the most disciplined Marine has weaknesses...and Sheridan is one Sam might not be able to resist.

My Opinion

This was a quick easy read that I couldn't put down. I was a bit hesitant when requesting it what with the male nanny aspect--or manny (a term I hate)--but the marines caught my attention enough to give it a go as I wanted to read book two. Now that I've read it, I'm glad I gave it a chance.

I really liked the relationship in this book and how everything progressed. There was a believable growth in emotions whilst the secrets being kept always kept me on my toes about when it was going to be revealed. There were parts of the book that made me laugh due to things characters said and among all of the baby drama, there was a fun flirty side. Sam was a good alpha character who you can't help but like. I did want his guilt at the mission to be built up and fleshed out a bit more a that section felt a little rushed and underdeveloped but he was an easy guy to love and Sheri was easy to connect with.

Overall this was a shorter read than I expected but it was really enjoyable. The characters were great, their feelings were believable, they had some funny moments but there were also hot, steamy sections. I would definitely recommend this book and now I'm off to start books 2!
