Peek Inside Falling for the Marine

USMC helicopter pilot Michael McCade has two goals: Get his damn back into alignment and stay out of trouble until his commanding officer clears him to fly again. When his too-hot-to-handle neighbor turns out to be his masseuse, he strays from the plan in a major way. But can a girl who avoids attachments at all costs fake an engagement to a straight-arrow soldier without falling hard?

Pretending to be in love has never felt so sexy.

USMC helicopter pilot Michael McCade has two goals: Get his damn back into alignment and keep his nose clean until his ultra-conservative commanding officer clears him to fly again. The doctor-recommended massage therapy seems like a necessary evil if he’s to return to the cockpit, but when his too-hot-to-handle neighbor turns out to be his masseuse, he strays from the straight and narrow in a major way.

Former military brat Chloe Kincaid is looking for an ego-boosting, no strings attached hook up. But when her positively panty-melting neighbor (aka “Major Hottie”) shows up on her massage table, their off-the-charts chemistry overrides her no-military-men policy…until they’re caught. Now they have to fake an engagement to avoid the fallout, but can a girl who runs from attachments pretend to be in love with a straight-arrow soldier without falling hard?

4.5 feel-good, steamy stars!

With her trademark humor, witty dialogue, great characterizations and of course steamy smexy scenes, Samanthe Beck's Falling for the Marine hits all the right notes for me. Suffice it to say, this one is another winner for me.

5 stars

I must admit I was a bit weary with how things spiralled so quickly at the beginning but I just finished the book with the cheesiest grin so I'm not going to be stingy this time. I swear I don't remember the last time I felt so happy reading.

The blurb sums up the story pretty well and althou ...more

4.5 Stars!! I love this author!! Holy hell can she write, just not fast enough for me!!

Read my friend Geri's review! She says everything I would have said...just better!

The additional entry at the end for the 'Grandkid Story'...priceless!! Big, big smile on my face! Just had to add that! ...more

I read this book years ago, but never recorded it! This is one of the steamiest Brazen books I've read. Samanthe Beck's books usually are.

I wrote the darn thing, and I love it like a child! I laughed my ass off bringing Chloe and Michael's antics to life. There's no better job than sitting at my computer dreaming up crazy, racy, impetuous situations for massage therapist Chloe Kincaid to fall into, (and for big, bad, Marine Corps Majo ...more

4.5 Major Hottie Stars!!

I really enjoyed this installment to the McCade Brothers. Michael was funny, sweet, and very sexy. Chloe was a walking, talking disaster, but in a cute way. Michael and Chloe were a fantastic couple, and the chemistry between them was off the charts!!!!

By Heidi October 30, 2013

I think this ticked all those contemporary romance boxes with some sexy scenes thrown in for good measure. I really enjoyed this story of Michael and Chloe. Maybe I was in the mood for a funny romantic tale of two people who really shouldn't click. But they click on so many levels and for all the wr ...more

This was a light, fast, entertaining read with some great, steamy, naughty moments to add a little oomph!

Yesterday, I was searching for something to pull me out of my bad book funk. Thankfully, I stumbled upon Falling for the Marine, which was precisely what I needed. Short, sweet, fun & steamy. Great characters. Well-written.

Was it a "perfect" book? No. However, it did make me smile after the horrend ...more

*****4.5 Stars!!!*****

Okay, so men in uniform are always a sexy temptation, but Samanthe Beck’s Major Hottie puts others to shame!! I usually start out my reviews talking about the heroine, but Michael McCade was such a walking sexual fantasy of a man that I can’t help oohing and aaahing over him fi ...more

By Vi (like the letter) December 24, 2015

Falling for the Marine is easily one of the best Brazens I've read in quite awhile. It rivals my love for the Line of Duty series, although a bit more tamer and plenty of hilarity involved. I've always adored Samanthe and her writing ever since first reading Private Practice, but if you recall, I es ...more

By RJ April 07, 2015

I have read a lot of Brazen books, but this has got to be one of my favorite!

In the beginning I did feel like their relationship was moving a little too quickly, but things level out later on. I also like that there wasn't any "I want you, but can't have you" crap. Michael and Chloe both wanted each ...more

By Nicola October 29, 2013

Sir! yes Sir! I'm more than partial to a military man and Michael McCade puts the Mmmm in Marine; confident, protective and funny, he's a charmer with huge heart. Free-spirited Chloe is stubborn and sweet. He's injured, she's a massage therapist, their chemistry is instant and lets just say his back ...more

Re read via audible
(Narrator is not a favorite of mine) despite this the story holds!

Lately I have found that many of the Brazen books I read over the past two years do not hold up on re read. I am pleased to say this is not the case here!

This story is sweet, sexy and funny! LOL funny. Even though t ...more

Sweet, steamy read!

I really liked the premise of this book. Well, I really liked the idea of anything with a marine because let’s be honest… Who doesn’t love a hot military man?

Our heroine, Chloe is a free spirit. She doesn’t do involved relationships. She’s been hurt in the past and is determined n ...more

I want to marry this book.

First, I am in love with USMC helicopter pilot Michael McCade. If you like military men, stop reading here and go buy this book. It's fantastic. Second, Chloe Kincaid is a heroine I can relate to because she's complicated. She's had a few rough spots in her life and she's w ...more

Before starting Falling for the Marine by Samanthe Beck, I was informed reading the first book in the McCade Brothers series, Lover Undercover, was not a prerequisite. Big mistake on my part. Why? Was I lost because this book can’t be read as a standalone? Not at all, actually it’s because I just ca ...more

By Crystal ♥ RBtWBC November 04, 2013

This book should be titled 'Falling into a quivering pile of girly bits for the Marine', but I guess that might be a tad too long. It would be the truth though!

Chloe Kincaid works as a massage therapist for a temp agency, which is the perfect job for this free-spirited young lady. Currently station ...more

Please note* You do not need to read the first book in this series in order to read this book.

I personally have never been disappointed with a Brazen title! I was hooked into this book from the first page. (I love when that happens.)

By Sue "DavinciKittie" October 11, 2013

The first thing that struck me about this story was the strong, brotherly relationship between the male characters and their witty, sarcastic banter at each other's expense; I love the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, humor Ms. Beck works into so many of the conversations.

I also really liked Mi ...more

I can't get this goofy smile off my face from reading FALLING FOR THE MARINE. What begins as the best meet-cute ever flows right into a wonderful love story. I enjoyed every minute of this book, and Samanthe's writing just makes me so damn happy!

I loved the first book of this series, and the no ...more

Nice read. Thrown together by chance Girl puts up emotional walls. Major Hottie works to bust them down.

When Chloe managed to get herself into a bit of a pickle involving candles and handcuffs, the last person she hoped would come to her rescue was the 'nice young man' from next door she heard so much about. But there he was, helicopter pilot ...more
