Started by Felicia, Christi and Amanda, Top Off Tuesday is where a bunch of us share hot-hot-hot book covers (some we’ve read, some we’ve just drooled on). Head over to Felicia’s blog to share your ToT link and see what everyone else is swooning over.
While I’m not a fan of the all-one-color covers (this is a trend in this Entangled line), I’m always a fan of a nekkid man (well, torso), especially when it looks as lovely as this. However, I think I’d move the chick over (maybe put her hand over his package, just as a tease) so we’d have a double-nip cover. Those always make us happy. Right, girls?

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 hands off. But even the most disciplined Marine has weaknesses…and Sheridan is one Sam might not be able to resist.
What is it about military men that makes me go weak in the knees? Dangerous, well-trained, muscled and smart — Sam is just my type. He’s Sheridan’s type, too, though she’s currently off men due to her twin babies and lying, cheating scum of an ex-husband who’s currently harassing her, trying to get back in her good graces.
Sheri’s hot, overprotective brother Mac (ooh, can’t wait for a story about him!) is worried about her but he knows she’ll flip a lid if he sticks her with a bodyguard so he hires Sam, a marine who hasn’t yet decided if he’s going to re-up (a difficult last sniper assignment has messed with his head a bit), to play manny and pretend NOT to be a military man of any type while protecting Sheri from her creepy ex.
Y’all, thank goodness I was sick yesterday — I was able to read this story in one sitting, on the day it released. I LOVE when that happens (not the sick part. That sucked.). One of my favorite things about Tawna Fenske’s writing is the banter and heat she creates between her two main characters and this story is no different. With Mac’s warning not to touch his sister ringing in his ears, Sam’s trying to be a good guy and not do Sheri up against the wall, even though he boned up pretty much as soon as he saw her (he’d run into her in college and never forgot her so it isn’t like he’s just a lust-bunny). Visions of her ex with his stripper dancing in her head, Sheri’s just not ready for another relationship until Sam comes along.
Want fabulous heat, giggle-inducing banter and a fun, unputdownable story? Hire yourself a marine and enjoy.
