Story Overview:
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen 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 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.

My Review:
I think that this is the 2nd or 3rd book I've read by Tawna Fenske and I'm coming to know that she simply writes a book that I'm thoroughly going to enjoy...both the story and the romance and her fun style of writing. 

This book features Sam. He's a spec ops sniper who's on a leave from duty right now while they are doing an investigation into his last mission. In the meantime, he's been home working for his parents, letting his military haircut go, and trying not to dwell on what went wrong. Mac is a lifelong friend who also serves in the military somewhere in deep black status. Whatever he does he has a lot of power and influence. He's also one of Sam's best friends. So when he comes to Sam requesting that Sam help with his sister, Sheridan, Sam can't refuse.

Sheridan has twin 7 month old twins and a brand-new divorce from a military jerk who cheated on her while she was still recovering from having two babies. Because yeah, how can any man be expected to wait for sex for six weeks? Like I said, royal jerk...and he's been harassing Sheridan. So Mac wants some protection for her and the boys until her ex PCS's and can't get to her anymore. He hires Sam a the manny, although his real duty is bodyguard...without benefits. Mac is very specific about that...Sam is not to touch Sheridan. The problem with that plan is that Sam has been lusting after her since college and finds her even more attractive now. Hands off is kind of an impossibility.

There's so much to love about this book. I love the manny angle. Sam isn't a stranger to young kids. He has a huge family and is a pro with the boys. It was great to see this alpha male being so sweet with two little ones and I loved that he's always honest with Sheridan when they have a rough day and doesn't try to cover it up. It's especially important for her to hear since she truly feels like she's the worst mother ever. This girl needs someone there validating that she is a good mother and Sam is awesome at it. 

It truly is a great book. There were so many scenes that left me with a smile on my face and made me happier for having read it. I'm also excited because this is just the start to the series. Mac's book is coming SOON. I already pre-ordered it and can't wait to read it. I definitely recommend this one!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
