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.

Tawna Fenske is a new author to me and with that comes lots of lovely anticipation of what's in store. Having devoured this I can confidently say I will be reading more from her.

Taking the winning formula of a military man and a feisty lady, Marine for Hire is a sexy romance with a difference as our leading lady, Sheridan Patton-Price, is a Mum. Newly divorced with 7 month-old boys, she doubts herself, but she is one gutsy, funny and stubborn lady. With her ex lurking, her overbearing brother Mac intervenes. Enter our oh-so-sexy Marine slash newly hired 'nanny', Sam Kercher; calm, collected, protective, has an amazing way with words (and actions, ahem) and is a big softie with kids. What women in her right mind could resist all that...

With a storyline encompassing romance, humour, action, banter and sexual tension leading to some exceptionally hot horizontal (and vertical) activities, the sparks flew and I flitted between laughing and swooning. Whilst I would have liked a touch more action heading towards the end, it doesn't detract from a well-written book with a sexy and refreshing storyline that is a great new addition to the Brazen line.

Worth reading? Definitely. Get ready for some serious swooning and I look forward to Mac and Kelli's book.

I received a copy of this as and ARC courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Out Loud Funny February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If you know me, you know I have twins, so I'm always delighted to read books about parents with multiples, though more often than not I find them somewhat unrealistic. I'm absolutely ecstatic to report that this book handled the twin issue very VERY well.

OMG, the whole book was hilarious. I knew I was in for a treat and a delight when, at location 70, when Sam's friend/SHeri's brother approaches him about stepping in as a temporary nanny, Sam's response is:

"I appreciate you saving my life in Baghdad. I do. But can't I just buy you a beer or a car or something?"

That was only one of many great lines in here. Like I said, the realism for a mom of twins (esp. one who's doing it on her own) was spectacular, as seen here (location 117):

"I spent all morning thinking Jeffrey was Jackson and Jackson was Jeffrey. And then I got halfway through putting on their diaper rash cream before I realized it was toothpaste. What sort of mother does that?"

"Well, they are twins. And now their little backsides are minty fresh and tingly."

Having had trouble in the early days recognizing/remembering which was which of my girls (and they are fraternal, not even identical), I totally buy the not recognizing thing.

Sam, who despite his claims to Sheri (because he has to to get into her life) has no clue how to take care of a baby and his priceless reaction to changing a diaper made me giggle so hard:

The baby screeched with displeasure. He studied the squirming bundle and tried to remember the steps in the video.

Point the barrel in a safe direction and move the selector level to "safe" before pressing the magazine release button and --
