Book Description

Marine for Hire (A Front and Center Novel) by Tawna Fenske is a satisfying category romance from Entangled's brand new Lovestruck 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 disassemble 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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another hilarious read from Tawna Fenske February 3, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Tawna Fenske should be a must read for anybody who likes humour in their romance. No one does it better and again this author had me laughing and occasionally snorting out loud while reading this book. Watch out for the scene in the park with Sam and the twins, it's a favourite of mine. It had me wiping tears of mirth away. Seriously.

    This book was so much fun to read, the premise of a big beefy marine playing nanny and bodyguard at the same time was one I was happy to read. I enjoyed it so much that I almost read this book in one sitting, the only thing that stopped me was my eyes closing of their own accord.

    I absolutely loved Sam and Sheri. The single mum to adorable twins had me wanting to offer help just so she could get a break. Plus Sam the manny was just awesome. You will melt when you read his interactions with the twins. The chemistry is hot between these two, there are some extra funny, hot and unexpected scenes when they are trying to deal with that attraction.

    When marine Sam is asked to play manny/bodyguard to his best friends sister and her twin boys, he expected to go, help and be out of there in 2 weeks. Anything to help and keep the sisters arse of an ex away till he ships out to his new assignment. Oh and as per Mac the brothers order, keep his hands off Sheri and don't let her know the reason he is really there. But things don't always go to plan.

    Sheri is about to start a new job, is exhausted from looking after her twins, needs a nanny and has a ex military husband who ran off with a stripper but now wants her back. Not to mention over protective brothers and a not so slight aversion to military men. The last thing she expected was for her brother to turn up with Sam. Manny extraordinaire.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Not your Usual Brazen book, but still good February 7, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    So, I just finished Marine for Hire by Tawna Fenske. I must say that I really enjoyed the story. Actually it was a lot of fun and I have to say that this is probably one of the most tame Brazen book I have ever read. Most of the time the Brazen line is a little more steamer than other any other Entangled books. Don't get me wrong there is still some steamy scenes, but not an overwhelm number of them. Now that's out of the way, let's meet the characters.

    We have Sam Kercher is in limbo so to speak. He's not sure if he will continue to have a military career after the investigation of an incident that happen. So, he figure he would help his family out while he's on leave. However, his best friend, Mac, asks him for a huge favor which happens to be keep an eye on his sister and her boys. Now Sheridan Patton-Price is now a single mom raising twin boys, because her idiot of an ex decided to cheat on her. She does need help, but she's not sure what her brother was thinking when he "hire" Sam.

    Seriously, loved Marine for Hire. I was laughing at the funny remarks that came from the characters. Here's an example:
    "Lying is the absolute worst thing. Worse than riptides and parking tickets and pubic lice combined"
    You have to admit that's pretty off the wall to say. You can find a lot more of that in the story. I love Sheridan, because she has the first time mommy doubts. She tries to be the perfect mom, because she's trying to overcompensate since her sons father isn't in the picture. Sam is a great guy. Yes, he's a Marine to the core and he's trying to keep that from Sheri cause of her douche of ex kind of gave military guys a bad name. Hate when that happens. So, he's trying to keep everything under control and try not paw at his best friend's sister.

    3.0 out of 5 stars This is a nice light romantic read February 4, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I don’t normally read romances with children in it. Let’s be honest, it can be a little awkward and distracting when there’s thoughts of hard-ons one minute and children joyfully laughing in the next. So I went into this one with some reservation about there not only being one kid in the mix but two. However, the author did an amazing job incorporating the infants into the story that didn’t make it awkward at all.

    There was quite a bit of humor in the story. Right in the beginning you have Sheriden and her friend Kelli hanging out in the kitchen unwinding. Kelli is exactly like me. I have four children, all of which are covered in fur and have four legs. I never received the “mommy gene”. The puking, crying, pooping just sounds like a nightmare. However, scooping crap out of a box and cleaning up regurgitated furballs doesn’t faze me. Yup, Kelli and I are two peas in a pod.

    “I love you, Sher. And I’ll gladly hold you hair back if you need to puke in a bathroom toilet on girls’ night. But there’s no way I’m helping you wash diapers.”

    The story is written in both Seriden and Sam’s POV. Even if there weren’t a break in between the two, you could clearly tell them apart. Sheriden is worried about not being a good mother while weighing the ramifications of jumping her “manny”. Meanwhile, Sam is reciting Marine jargon and rehashing what to do in combat situations when changing the boys’ diapers. The author did a great job in creating the characters personalities and letting them shine through the pages.

    I’d have wished that the author had taken some chances with this story. Right from the synopsis you know how the story ends. Heck, I pretty much knew everything that was going to happen before finishing the first chapter.
