Book Description

Haunted by her past of murder for hire and skinning people alive to gather vital intelligence, Kat Boudreaux wants nothing more than to hide away in her sprawling mansion with the love of her life--her daughter. But then Private Gump and his band of Bubbas land on her doorstep. Her brother and his unit of misfit Marines insert themselves with the misguided need to protect her from someone hell-bent on vengeance.

For Shooter, it's love at first sight, though he wouldn't be caught dead admitting it. When Kat is nearly fatally injured while saving his life, he knows he's found the woman for him. Together, they fight side by side to get to the bottom of the threats. Kat's daughter is kidnapped and this ex-assassin mom reverts back to old habits to save her. Saving Kat and her daughter is easy, taming the shrew that is Hell Kat Boudreaux might mean losing his favorite appendage.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life! July 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How can a simple book change your life? I didn't think it could happen either until I felt the awesome power Never Say Just bestowed upon me after reading chapter one.

Suddenly, I had the ability to travel in time to before man. There I witnessed the elusive Jackalope during its mating season. Watching in awe as the Jackalope mounted its mate, I suddenly realized I had been doing it all wrong all these years.

So I fast forwarded to present day and started using my new found sexual abilities on any willing prey. Unfortunately, after waking up with Matilda, the one toothed cashier at Dollar Tree on more than one occasion, I knew I had to be careful and learn to control my new prowess.

With the rash gone I needed guidance on how to control my new life altering ability, I read chapters 2 thru 10. As I turned each page, muscles started forming where a beer gut and man boobs had once been. Rocking my new Magnum P.I. physique, I soon became the heart throb of section 8 housing. Women everywhere were throwing their W.I.C. checks at me, left and right.

Now on a steady diet of government cheese, milk, pinto beans and peanut butter, my tape worm has bulked up quite a bit as well giving me the appearance of two extra ripped abs.

Now I must warn you. Do not read past chapter 10 unless you are responsible enough to wield the uber-super-secret-agent-ninja powers!

While experimenting with my new found ultra-ninja moves, I came across a pretty little think at the liquor loft. A one eyed 5'9" brunette with legs up to her chin, milky white skin, wearing a sequin tube top revealing a belly button piercing and two singing sparrow tattoos, spandex shorts that accentuated her healthy muffin top. Her name was Todd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book July 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book came to me as a request for a read/review. I went through three books the other night looking for one that "worked." As many know, I don't do a review if I can't at least give it a three and if I can't finish one I don't ever mention the title. Then I opened this one. First, I must confess that I love military men in stories. Flawed yet heroic this cast of characters didn't let me down nor did Ms. Harper's caustic yet humorous writing style. This one was done in two days and I'm wishing there was another ready to take its place. If you are looking for a contemporary romance that isn't squishy and plotless check this one out.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Made Me A Fan Of The Rat Bastards!! June 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Katie Harper and her Rat Bastards have nailed it on the head for me in this book! She provides you the perfect mixture of personal and outward conflicts, action packed scenes, romance, humor, vibrant and memorable characters, and a phenomenal storyline.'Never Say Just' carries you along its multifaceted journey, and leaves you feeling fulfilled and begging for more.
Kat, our star lady, is an edgy, strong and stubborn woman who has lived a long and disturbing life. She and her five year old daughter have inherited a multi-billion dollar oil enterprise from her husbands death. This has provided her with a chance to bury her past, but there are some things even money can't mend or cover. She will have to face several of her personal demons while we are with her, and some of them are dark or even dangerous. Will she manage to face them and put them to rest, or will it prove to be more than she can handle?
The Rat Bastards: A unit of 6 Marines, including her brother Tyler, who are on leave for the summer and will be staying with her. She gets the feeling almost immediately that something with their visit is 'off'. She overhears them in her Club Room (her version of a man cave) making what sounds to be tactical plans. Why does a Marine unit need tactical plans while on leave? Well, she aims to find out. She will follow, nag, bait, and frustrate them into telling her if she must. Perhaps they'll even be good for her to have around. For something. Maybe.
I'd love to tell you more of what you'll run into, but then I'd unravel too many of the twists. You'll just have to purchase a copy and read it to find out!
I thought every character in this book, no matter how small a part, was delightful in his/her own way. The writing flows smoothly throughout, and is quick to gather your full attention. All I have to ask is this: There's more, right?? Please keep 'em coming!! Those Rat Bastards are addicting!
*Smiles* Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed for Cocktails and Books February 21, 2013
Format:Paperback
Never Say Just is a book that has to grow on you. I struggled to get through the first part of the book. The storyline began with a brother returning home from the marines with several of his marine friends to spend the summer with his sister. Shortly after the brother enters the storyline he sort of disappears and fades into the background.

The female character finds out that their story about visiting for the summer is a ruse and they actually are there to protect her and her daughter from a person bent on revenge because of her previous career as an assassin for a government agency. How realistic is it that this woman marries a billionaire after a career as an assasin? She decides to play along with her brother and even seduce one of the marines to obtain information. At this point I felt the plot was too farfetched. How would one logically jump from meeting the marines and finding out their true intent to deciding to seduce one of them? This is particularly unbelievable because she was also gang raped, beaten, and cut previous to their visit which is the reason they make her so uncomfortable.

Despite the far fetched plot, much shaking of my head, and the many times when I closed my Kindle and thought I couldn't go on the characters begin to resonate with me. One of the marines apparently fell in love with her on first sight, they loved, lost, and came back together. It was an anti-climatic, predictable happy ending.
