Overview

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.

    So funny

    ## HILARIOUS. Omg, I found myself laughing so many times throughout this fantastic book. The scene when Sheri is in her bedroom pleasuring herself while Sam is in the kitchen trying to put out a fire had me in stitches. This was a perfect escape read. Let all your problems melt away and enjoy this irresistible story about a beautiful, sassy but slightly quirky heroine and a total hottie Marine. Their chemistry was undeniable. I am so looking forward to Mac's story and I sincerely hope it involves Kelli. She was a hoot and a half. Not only do I highly recommend this book but will also be reading it myself again.

    I was stuck between laughing hysterically and snorting in agreem

    I was stuck between laughing hysterically and snorting in agreement. Sheri's constant harping about being a "normal mother" hit home. It took having just one kid to realize I was a normal mother, that "normal" is defined by me and my husband, not books or advice columns or anyone in a Mommy and Me club.

    I loved that Sam and Sheri knew each other before, even if Sheri's memory of Sam isn't as sharp as his is of her. Their chemistry is amazing, in and out of bed. Sam's role as a nanny to her kids was seamless; I guess having all those nieces and nephews helped him out in a big way, lol.

    And I can appreciate Sheri's brother Mac's wanting to protect her from her no-good, cheating ex by hiring Sam to be both nanny and bodyguard. His intentions were good and I can't fault him for that. He's an older brother. In real life, aren't most older brothers the protectors of their younger siblings, especially if they're girls?

    Ms. Fenske's written a realistic love story rife with emotions, secrets, family interference, and lessons needing to be learned. But it was all worth it when Sam and Sheri got their happy ending, complete with love, laughter, and dirty diapers.

    When I first started reading this book, I automatically compared

    When I first started reading this book, I automatically compared it to that movie with Vin Diesel going from hardened military turned babysitter, but unlike hero in The Pacifier, Sam Kercher is hot, dangerous and oh, so desirable. I read half the book in one sitting, unable to get enough.




    I was honestly surprised by the “F” word in some areas, as Fenske usually doesn’t go that route, and the fact that her heroine has been around military men her entire life, but didn’t recognize one living with her. Beds made with hospital corners, large knife with him at all times, jumpy, verbal slip ups; they all pointed to the truth: Sam was military. Either Sheridan didn’t want to see Sam for who he really was, which I’m more inclined to believe even though she gave no indication of the fact, or she was really that stupid for not seeing through his explanations.




    In the end, I give the book 4 stars. I wanted to give it 5, but couldn’t get past the heroine. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, the hero and even the 7-month-olds Fenske threw in there and recommend it for romantic comedy lovers.

    Panty-melting hilarity! (Trust me, there's no higher praise than that.) I have a soft spot for hot military heroes and funny romance. This book delivers deliciously on both fronts. Get your fans out and prepare to laugh!

    When I saw the cover of this book on Netgalley, I was intrigued; once I read the blurb, I was hooked. I had no idea that this book had been released with another cover back in February under the Brazen imprint by Entangled publishing. It wasn't until I was marking it on Goodreads that I even noticed. Honestly, I like this cover so much better. It was what drew me to read the blurb.

    Basically, we have Sam-the-Sexy Marine and Sheri-the-Spitfire Single Mom. MacArthur, Sheri's older brother and Sam's best friend, has asked Sam to play Nanny or Manny, as the case may be, to keep an eye on Sheri. Sheri's ex-husband has been giving her some trouble lately and big brother wants someone he can trust looking out for her. Sam has crushed on Sheri since the guys were in college and reluctantly agrees to keep Mac's assignment secret while on leave. But Sheri hates liars: "Lying is the absolute worst thing. Worse than riptides and parking tickets and pubic lice combined."

    This book has unexpected funny moments, told from both Sam's and Sheri's perspective. Although some of the best ones were when Sam was dealing with the twin boys, such as likening changing a diaper to cleaning an automatic weapon. I knew the deception was going to be a critical point between the characters. I wasn't wrong, but it was wrapped up in a twist that kept this trope fresh and interesting. Book 2 will be MacArthur's story and I can't wait to see him get his meddling comeuppance. I enjoyed this and gave it 3 stars.

    I Also Recommend:

    In Marine for Hire Tawna Fenske set-up a remarkably entertaining

    In Marine for Hire Tawna Fenske set-up a remarkably entertaining tale about a newly divorced mother of two and an undercover marine posing as her manny. Sam Kercher has participated in a lot of missions during his career, but nothing prepared him for Operation Nanny. Mac’s sister's ex-husband is harassing her; so he calls in a favor, enduring she is protected while he is away. Sam knew the day would come that he would regret owning Mac a favor – today is that day. The favor is to watch over Mac’s sister, Sheridan, and her twin sons.
    “Just for a couple weeks. I’ll find her a real nanny when Limpdick’s out of the picture. Oh, and there’s one other thing.”

    Sam raised his eyebrow, resisting the urge to remind him that just one catch had already morphed into more.

    Mac folded his arms over his chest again. “Keep your hands off my sister.”
    This is a great pick me up story that is light, humorous and well-balanced. The foreplay and dialogue have this reader looking forward to future stories. I highly recommend this for fans of wickedly, sexy, military men.

    Funny, hot, and sexy! A great read that had me laughing. The characters are awesome - so likeable. Who wouldn't want Sam for a manny or Kelli as a BF to "make brownies and drink bourbon and insult penises" with? So looking forward to the next book in the series.

    This was a light, easy read and I read it in one sitting. Sam had his hands full with the twins and trying to hide his identity as a Marine from Sheridan. Sheridan is just trying to regroup and get on with her life after her husband cheated on her and is dealing with infant twin boys. It was what you would expect from a romance novel, no surprises at all. Overall an okay read.

    Snooze alert.

    This book is fairly boring and too silly. Tried to finish reading at least 4 times, but it never keeps my attention. Pass on this one.
