Peek Inside Marine For Hire

Sam Kercher is every inch a wickedly hot Marine. But 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 seven-month-old twins. Problem is, Sheridan has sworn off overbearing military men, so Sam must hide his identity. And that he’s been ordered not to touch her. Ever. But even the most disciplined Marine has weaknesses...and Sheridan is one Sam might not be able to resist.

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, 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.

This was a very good story. I liked both Sheri and Sam and liked their story. This is the first story I've read by this author and based off this I'm likely to read more of her work in the future.

This is the first book I’ve read by author Tawna Fenske and Marine for Hire was a good time. It’s listed at 245 pages but seemed like a shorter read. The entire story line takes place in less than a two week time span. Obviously, because of that, things develop quite quickly but I thought the pacing ...more

So. Things that'll make me go all girly swoony? Marines. Marines who like babies. Marines who like babies and sing to them. And adore their heroines just the way they are. *nods* Marine for Hire was totally working for me.

The gist: Sheri's husband had a randy pecker and he left her and their twin bo ...more

Five stars, you ask? Really?

Yes, and worth each one. When you find an author who can make you laugh through a steamy book about a hunky Marine posing as a nanny, who can't cook and entertains a set of twins by demonstrating military tactics...five stars aren't actually enough.

I love reading a book ...more
