Great Book With Great Characters
All I Want for Halloween - Marie Harte

Sadie had been watching Motorcycle Madnezz  and Sadie thought about how dull he life seemed in comparison to the reality show and how much she preferred it that way. She groaned when a commercial came on and it reminded her she couldn’t put off getting a costume  much longer. Her brother Elliott had forced her to accept a costume party invitation. When Sadie asked why she couldn’t skip the party Elliott said anything to get her into something besides her sweatpants. He also added she was turning into a store hag, limp hair, no sense of style and she growled at their customers. Then he said important people wanted a face to the fantastic food. They could easily build more business Elliott also felt Sadie should be dating, having fun. Enjoying life, and laughing more. Elliott said all Sadie did was hang out at the gym. Then Sadie thought maybe she should find a guy at the party. Something physical might cheer her up and clear her mind. Even though elliott annoyed Sadie he was her best friend and there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for her and she loved him. Harrison “Gear” Blackstone counted to ten before answering her younger brother Thor. He noticed his sister acting like she wasn’t listening in, Thir had a brain like a computer and if anyone could figure out a way for Gear to get out of the mess his life had become it was Thor. Gear was being forced to go to the costume party by his contract. His sister told him just be the jerk you are on the show after some time on camera change his costume and hang out until for the rest of the mandatory time he had to be there. Gear’s dream of running one of the best custom shop had come true but at a price’ His ex fiance and ex best friend Brian had put him through the wringer and got rid of him which still hurt. Gear’s gift of everything mechanical hasd transformed into love for the motorcycle. Sahara had been Gear’s fiance and Briand his best friend until they cheated together at Gear’s pain. Iris told Gear he had always been upfront about who he was and what he wanted. Those people who are your friends know this. See who is still around after all the garbage was over. She also said don’t get mad get even. Elliott went to the party as the Phantom Of The Opera and Sadie was a warrior princess. Then Elliott pointed out the guys from Motorcycle Madnezz. Sadie thought Gear was hot. He was dressed as Batman’s Joker. Sadie found a shadowed area with a table for her food and drink.Then she noticed a real hot Devil with a drink in one hand and a plate of food in the other and a woman was manhandling him. When he finally got away from the woman he asked Sadie if he could sit down and she said he had earned it. He had a great body and smile. Then Sadie seen Elliott looking for her and she asked the man to just go along with her and she kissed him Soon Sadie forgot everything but the kiss. Sadie had never been so out of control She found some foliage that pretty much hid then unless someone was really looking and she and the Devil had sex there. Gear was in shock when the girl he had just had sex with punched Sahara in the face after Sahara had slapped her. Gear went to Joaquin described Elliott and asked who the woman was and told Joaquin what had happened. Joaquin said he would act like he had no idea could have hit Sahara. Joaquin also told him to try Sofa’s to  find the girl. Sunday at Sofa’s the bakery/ coffeeshop that had expanded into a catering business also saw the siblings -Rose, Elliott and Sadie spending time together before they opened at eleven. Every weekend Sadie, Rose, and Elliott mixed, prepared, and frosted the  most delicious treats from healthy salads to sandwiches and baked goods. Sadie wouldn’t admit it but she loved their family time. Sadie had little in the way of needs: a gym membership at Jamesons, subscription to Netflix and Hulu, and an addiction to frilly underthings, and white chocolate raspberry truffles . Gear showed up at Sofa’s with the sword from Sadie’s costume and Sadie realized her devil had been Gear. Then Gear invited her to dinner but it would have to be at her house or his because of paparazzi. Sadie made it clear she didn’t want a boyfriend and Gear said after his disaster of an engagement he didn’t want a girlfriend anytime soon.

This was a great story and romance and I loved it. I loved the plot and pace. I loved how Sadie and Gear came together and were so much alike. I was sorry that Adrian and Sadie’s best friend had hurt her so bad as well as the hurt Gear went through with Sarah and Brian. I know Sadie and Gear fell pretty quick but in this instance it was just right. I loved Sadie and Gear’s family. I chuckled at times while reading this book. I couldn’t find anything I didn’t like about this story which is always great when it happens. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

Roadside Assistance by Marie Harte $1.99
Roadside Assistance (Body Shop Bad Boys) - Marie Harte

Foley Sanders figured he'll always be content with a life of cars and casual hookups. Until a run-in with Cyn, a statuesque firecracker with a hate-on for men, leaves him bewitched and intrigued-much to her annoyance.

 

Maybe Cynthia Nichols was a little hard on Foley, that muscular, tattooed, super-hot mechanic next door. But she's tired of feeling defensive about her size and has sworn off men. She's got a new job, new life, perfect plan. Foley has trouble written all over him-no way is she going to fall for his charms.

 

Foley might look like a bad idea, but underneath, he's all gentleman. Too bad Cyn's not buying it. What's a bad boy to do when the goddess of his dreams won't give him the time of day?

All I Want for Halloween - Marie Harte

 

A tricky but steamy treat is at the center of Marie Harte's latest tempting read.

All I Want For Halloween makes for wicked fun.  Fantasy and reality collides for two strangers in the night and in the light of day their lives may never be the same.  Ms. Harte is a master at wrapping readers up in her world of steamy trysts and secret vice.  Seduction has never been so tempting.

Review: All I Want for Halloween by Marie Harte
All I Want for Halloween - Marie Harte

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

 

All I Want for Halloween is anything but ordinary thanks to its unique characters. I love heroines in particular who break the mold and Marie Harte definitely delivered with Sadie. Sadie is a breath of fresh air. She’s blunt, often cranky, has no patience for BS, and isn’t exactly what you’d call a people person. I loved that she is confident and outspoken and I honestly just plain liked her. She was hurt in the past pretty badly and I was rooting for those walls around her heart to come down. Gear is her perfect match. He’s equally blunt and grouchy and has also been burned in the past by people he trusted. Nevertheless, he falls fast and hard for Sadie and doesn’t give up even when she’s wary of trusting him with her heart. I loved that these two wonderfully flawed characters actually like things about one another that others might not. Their romance is not only seriously hot, it’s fun.

The road to happily ever after isn’t always a smooth ride for Sadie and Gear, but luckily for them they both have family on hand to support them when the going gets tough. Neither the Liberato nor the Blackstone clan is your average family, and I adored that about them. The entire cast (discounting evil exes and backstabbing former best friends) is irreverent, good-hearted, and charmed the heck out of me. I liked them all so much that I hated to say good-bye at the end of the book; I really hope Ms. Harte has stories in store for Sadie and Gear’s siblings (especially if the attraction between their brothers turns into something more). All I Want for Halloween is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Harte and it’s a total treat. I can’t wait to read more of her work.

JUST THE THING by Marie Harte
Just the Thing - Marie Harte
 
 
 
 
JUST THE THING
The Donnigans series, book 2
by Marie Harte
<!--more-->
 

Genre: Spicy Contemporary Romance

 

"The sultry sex and seduction scenes are just the icing on this incredibly rich and satisfying cake. Readers will sit down, read this book from cover to cover in one sitting, and then pick it up to read it all over again."―RT Book Reviews, 5 Gold Stars

 
A FLING MIGHT BE JUST THE THING...

 
Gavin Donnigan left the Marine Corps a shell of a man, hounded by guilt for deaths he couldn't prevent. But teaching a self-defense class at the local gym brings some stability to his life―along with a gorgeous woman who won't give him the time of day.

 
Zoe York lost her twin sister to a freak car accident a few months ago. She's been struggling to bury her grief, but it isn't until she signs up for a self-defense class with its distractingly hot instructor that she begins to come out of her shell again. With the memory of her sister telling her to live a little, Zoe decides a fling with buns-of-steel Gavin Donnigan might be just the thing.

 
Soon they're sparring both in and out of the gym. And for the first time in a long time, each is looking forward to tomorrow.


 

Gavin chuckled, then turned to Zoe, only to see her watching him, her gaze intense. “What?” She looked like she either wanted to run him over, punch him, or—dare he hope—kiss him.
 
“I’m just waiting for one of your incredibly fascinating comments about pink pants, small biceps, or fine form.” She didn’t sound too winded, yet she’d been on the machine for a good ten minutes at least. She was in phenomenal shape—those yoga pants didn’t lie.
 
He frowned. “Hey now, your biceps are just fine. Nothing small about them.” He didn’t recall ever criticizing her shape.
 
“I meant yours,” she said drily.
 
“You really are mean.”
 
She scowled. “I am not.”
 
“You are. That’s why I like you.”
 
“That’s a terrible thing to say.” Her lips curled, and his heart raced.
 
“Yet true.” Before a nearby musclehead could jump on the machine that opened up next to her, Gavin stepped in front of him, blocking the way. “Sorry, man. I’m training her.” He turned around, searching for a free machine. “There you go. That one just opened up.” He pointed out a machine in front of them before facing Zoe again.
 
The guy gave him an odd look and shrugged. “Well, I’m not gonna kiss you, but I get it. Poor bastard.” He chuckled and walked away, no harm no foul.
 
Before Gavin could ask what the guy was talking about, Zoe cut in, “Training me? Liar.” She slowed her machine to a walk.
 
Gavin put on a hurt look. “But I am training you. To smile. Slowly but surely, I’m working on that last nerve. The same one I’m constantly rubbing the wrong way on everyone else, according to my siblings. They, like you, have no appreciation for my sense of humor.” He bent over to touch his toes, luring her with his flexibility. When he straightened, he noticed the strange look she gave him.
 
Zoe glanced at him a moment more before grinning. Man, she had one sexy mouth. “Oh, I don’t know. I appreciate humor as much as the next gal.”
 
“Yeah?” He stared in awe. Her bright eyes were so…blue.
 
“How about this?” She added a husky laugh that shot sparks through his chest and radiated all over his body.
 
“You have a great laugh. You should do it more often.”
 
“Oh, I will.” She chuckled some more. “Thanks, Gavin. You really made my night.” Then she shocked the hell out of him when after getting off her machine, she leaned close to kiss him on the cheek.
 
“Th-thanks.” God willing, he could control himself with the woman. “Not that I don’t deserve that, but what made you kiss me? Uncontrollable lust? Finally owning up to your feelings? Realizing you’re in love with my charming self?”
 
She looked on the verge of exploding with mirth. “You sure you want to know?”
 
“Well, yeah, before we set our wedding date, at least.” He grinned at her. But she laughed again, and he had a feeling it was at—not with—him. He frowned. “Okay, what?”
 
She cleared her throat, her humor still plain to see. “Well, Smoky, there’s a sign on your back that says Kiss me if you pity men with small brains.
 
He blinked. “What?”
 
“I feel for you. It’s not your fault size really does matter.” She snickered again before leaving him busy staring over his shoulder at the mirrored wall behind him.

Meet the Donnigans

 
With the eldest Donnigan brothers adjusting to civilian life, their younger sister constantly in trouble, and their little brother clueless about life in general, falling in love is the last thing on anyone's mind...

 
Can this Bossy Badass Marine...

 
The Marine Corps was everything Landon Donnigan ever wanted in life...until a bullet sent him home with a medical discharge. Teaching a self-defense class at the gym is old-hat for a marine, but when he meets sexy Ava Rosenthal, his combat skills are useless for protecting his heart.

 
Be her Mr. Right?

 
Ava can take care of herself and likes quiet, bookish men-not muscular warriors who think women need to be coddled. But Landon is more than he seems, and when they come together, the results are explosive.

 

THE ONLY THING
Releasing in 2018, date TBD
 
On the cusp of turning thirty, Hope Donnigan is getting her life together. She’s working in a job she likes, has good friends, and has finally stopped dating Mr. Wrong. Entirely. So she should have no problem ignoring J.T. Webster. He’s big, bad, and totally what she should be steering clear of.
 
J.T. fell for the hot blonde months ago at his sister’s wedding. Having seen what love did to his father, he’s never felt close to a permanent relationship with a woman. But Hope gets to him. When he agrees to be her pretend boyfriend to annoy her mother, he never expects their fake relationship will be better than anything real he’s ever had. Before he knows it, he’s falling in love and not sure what to do about it.
 
But someone else wants Hope all to himself, and that someone isn’t happy about J.T. being in the picture. Soon, J.T. and Hope will have to deal with a secret admirer, her protective family, his annoyed sister, and their feelings for each other, which aren’t so pretend. But sometimes, there’s only one thing to do when you’re falling in love. And that’s let yourself go.
