ARC Review: Marine for Hire by Tawna Fenske

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, capable of making this hard-bodied marine even harder. And Sam wants her bad.

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.

3.5 Fun and Sexy Stars

Ladies, meet Sam Kercher

A rough, rugged, handsome Marine…
and manny?
Yep, you read that right. A sexy marine manny is what you’ll be getting here.(That’s a male nanny, if you’re not familiar)

Tawna Fenske is a new to me author, and after reading this book, she is going straight to my authors to look out for list. I was in the mood for something a little sexy and cute and this definitely delivered. The entire time I was reading it was like a Romantic Comedy was playing in my head, and I loved that. This book had everything, great characters, sexy marines, funny best friends, laugh out loud moments, and steam steam STEAM!

One of my favorite parts was the banter between Sheridan and her best friend Kelli. I was giggling like an idiot through most of their conversations.

Sheridan is recently divorced after her douchebag of a husband cheated on her with a stripper.

And I’m especially glad your douchebag ex is gone.” She frowned. “Was that too insensitive?”
“Please. I spent three years married to Captain Insensitive. At this point you could tell me to go fuck myself and I’d feel giddy someone’s talking dirty to me.

Being a mommy of twins isn’t easy. So when her brother Mac offers to help her find a nanny, she’s quick to agree. Struggling with being a working mom, Sheridan fears that she’s not quite up to par as the other “normal moms”. What if the nanny ends up being better with her kids than she is?

What if they love the nanny more?”
“Impossible. You’ve got great tits.”
“Thank you. Exactly what every woman wants to be appreciated for.”
“You know what I mean. For-uh-nursing and stuff. Not that your nanny won’t have tits, but yours are dinner. You win.

So the last thing she expects when the nanny shows up is that there are no tits, but a great set of pecs. And the body and face to be attached to it is sexy as hell. Can’t say I blame you, Sheridan. The more I read about Sam, the more my libido would go

Sam has been attracted to the gorgeous brunette ever since he first stumbled into her at a party years ago. He’s not surprised she doesn’t remember him from back then. But the attraction between them now is certainly simmering.

Are you trying to drive me insane, or do you genuinely want me to throw you across this table and fuck you ’till neither of us can stand?”.

Hmm..let me think on that for a minute, Sam.

I appreciated the slow build that the author gave to their attraction. I’m glad that they didn’t jump into bed together right away. Rather the sexual tension was built to the point of boiling and when it finally did happen? Well damn. No complaints from this girl.

There were many laugh out loud moments, particularly a part when Sam has to change one of the twins but doesn’t have diapers. There was even a little suspense thrown into the mix with Sheridan’s ex harassing her.

This was an entertaining read, though nothing I would see myself going back to. I did enjoy it, but there were some parts that had my interest waning a bit.

The set up for Mac’s book already has me sold. I’m already hoping that it will be Kelli that brings this sexy and mysterious Marine to his knees. I’m definitely looking forward to all future books from this author. And if you’re looking for a fun and sexy read, you really can’t go wrong with this one.
