"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 herbad. Protect the girl. Care for the babies. Hide his identity. And keep his handsoff. But even the most disciplined Marine has weaknesses...and Sheridan is one Sam might not be able to resist.
I picked up Marine for Hire by Tawna Fenske when some of my favorite blogging buddies said it was a fun, sexy read. They did not have to twist my arm too far, since I loved the synopsis and have a soft spot for a man in uniform. Marine for Hire while predictable was fun, sexy and just so darn sweet. It made me smile.
Caffeinated Dates with Marine for Hire
First date: You just know when an overly protective brother tries to look out for his sister by providing her with a manny for her twins that things are going to get interesting. Sam Kercher is on leave after a mission went wrong, and his best friend calls in a favor. He needs Sam to pose as a Nanny to protect her sister and her little ones. Sheri’s ex is on the island and big brother is concerned. Oh, I can just imagine all of the ways this can go wrong.
Second date: Operation Nanny is in full swing. I liked that Sam has prior memories of Sheri and has always had a thing for her. Sheri does not remember Sam but she’s not about to forget him a second time. The two are ogling each other behind each other’s back. You can just feel the sexual tension but Sam has been told, “Don’t touch my sister”, and Sheri cannot manhandle the nanny. Right? Mishaps, a little harassment from the ex and two cute little boys had me smiling and giggling.
Third date: We get hot showers, hilarious moments and a little va-va-voom. Yep, good times! Only Sheri has sworn off military men and hates liars. What is going to happen when she finds out her Manny is a Marine. While I fully expected an HEA, and mad professions of love before the story ended the ride was delightful. If you are looking for a light, fun read with a little sexy time sprinkled in you cannot go wrong dating, Marine for Hire.
Marine for Hire was fun, and the characters and set up for book two, Fiancee for Hire, have me excited to start.
Blessie (Mischievous Reads)
This book is one of my favorites! And Tawna Fenske is such a great romance comedy author! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Fiancee For Hire (It’s most favorite of the series) 😀

This sounds like a fun read Kimberly… Lies aren’t good for a relationship, so the Marine aspect would have been interesting to read about. Greta review!!
