Zero to Sixty (Body Shop Bad Boys) - Marie Harte

 

After her last disaster of a relationship, Ivy Stephens is content being single. She has her job, her apartment-and the cute little puppy she's seen hanging around. When he escapes, she finds her search efforts aided by a big, burly, devastatingly handsome man. One who claims a prior claim on her dog.

 

Sam Hamilton is at loose ends since his best friend fell in love. He finds a sense of purpose in rescuing strays. The puppy who's stolen his heart just happens to run into blond, beautiful Ivy. And Sam can't help hoping she'll take in one more stray-him-for good.

Special
A Sure Thing - Marie Harte

Landon & Ava meet at the gym where his brother works.  He overhears her talking to a friend about all the men she is meeting online.  Her dates are not ending well, and he has some advice for her.

 

Ava is not interested in Landon.  He is not her type.  So why is her heart pounding?  Why is it she cannot stay away from him?  The sparks are flying and it is just getting hotter.

 

I really love when a couple sets the book on fire.  I also enjoy when the banter is amazing and funny.  I loved this story, and I cannot wait to read the rest of The Donnigan series.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Great Story and Characters
Zero to Sixty (Body Shop Bad Boys) - Marie Harte

Sam was at Webster’s garage and all kinds of cars had come in today and he had been working all morning into early evening. Then Sam  had gotten Tyrant  an old cat of Willie’s from under a car and got scratched before getting Tyrant back to Willie as she would take care of where Tyrant hurt his ear. Sam only cared that Willie helped the animals that were strays and made life interesting as she definitely a character. Foley was Sam’s best friend but now Foley had Cyn who he loved even though she did include Sam in their life.  Foley’s mom considered Sam her son also and loved him as Sam loved her as she had practically raised Sam as her biological mother only put Sam down and told him he was unlovable and a loser and no good for anything. But she always called Sam every so often and as long as he did what she wanted she left Sam alone for months at a time. Foley and his mother had stood up to Sam’s biological mother so she was afraid of them and didn’t try to mess with them. Now Foley’s mother was remarrying and she was totally psychotic with her wedding plans. Sam was a little lonely now that Foley was with Cyn a lot. Sam had helped in a dogfight and had taken the pit bull to Willie to take care of as Willie loved taking care of animals and Sam found he liked helping animals. Sam was a very big man and had tattoos and looked scary. Every since the pit bull Sam and Willie worked together helping strays in the city. Ivy  co owned a massage clinic with Shelby who was the original owner of the clinic. Ivy was a licensed massage therapist Sam asked her if she had seen a  puppy and described Scruffy which Willie and he called the puppy. Ivy told Sam she had taken him in but then he got away and she was going looking for him Sam went with her.Ivy had not been on a date with anyone in over a year and when she and Sam both went to pet Cookie as Ivy called him she instantly felt an attraction to Sam. Ivy wasn’t looking for a man she didn’t want to be hurt again. Sam wanted Ivy to meet him for a beer and to talk about Cookie.Sam usually noticed a girl’s chest and butt but with Ivy it was her beautiful eyes as well as a beautiful  smile. Ivy seems to have implanted herself in Sam’s brain. Sam has lost his taste for  easy sex that didn’t mean anything Sam took Cookie until Ivy got the okay from her landlord to have the dog. Then Sam and Ivy went to get Cookie who was at Willie’s.Sam also gave Ivy a ride home as her car needed to be repaired. Sam had offered to check the clutch on her car for her. Sam kissed Ivy and thought he had gone to far and quickly left Ivy’s home and ivy felt like she had jumped Sam and scared him away. But everything got ironed out between Sam and Ivy. Sam and Ivy were actually going on a date. The physical chemistry was so off the wall for both of them. Ivy wondered what it would be like to be in a relationship with Sam. Ivy wasn’t a casual kind of girl when she fell for a guy she fell hard.

I absolutely loved this story, I didn’t want to put it down the plot was great. I loved how we seen Sam turn into a man who smiled and found some happiness. I hated his mother it wasn’t Sam’s fault for what happened and she had no one to help her . Sam tried to earn her love but between the drugs and her mental issues he just couldn’t reach her. I loved that Ivy wouldn’t give up on Sam and she stood up to his mother for them. Such a beautiful story to see the change in Sam once he found Ivy. A great read I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and  I highly recommend.

Entranced
Entranced - Marie Harte It was a good read, but they kept having sex at the most inopportune moments. In the living room of a little old lady's house 10 minutes after meeting, or against a tree in the woods, or while escaping from murdering psychos, etc.

Also -0.5 star any time there is a prophecy that says the couple has to work together and then one of them suggests splitting up because they're pissy. I encourage all authors to reconsider making their characters that stupid.

Really liked Heather's powers, though. That was neat.

Blog Tour - Contract Signed

Contract Signed (Triggerman, Inc. Book 1)

by Marie Harte

Date of Publication: January 17, 2017

 

 

 

Blurb:

 

Three assassins and a… baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match…and it wears diapers.

 

 

Triggerman, Inc., Book 1

 

Noel "Ice" Cavanaugh's method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn't right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone's left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it's his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he's fishing for "help" with his bundle of…joy? By date's end, she's convinced NOel's just as distant as he seems—until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule…and keeping both of them safe from the danger he's increasingly sure has followed him home.

 

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that's actually quite…requited.

 

Available From:

 

 
 
 
 

Wednesday evening, right before Noel’s big date, Hammer returned. Of course. Worst possible timing, but what the hell? Noel had been having one of those days. The baby had just puked over his carefully chosen outfit, much to Deacon’s amusement.

 

The bastard still hadn’t stopped laughing.

 

Wilkes had disappeared before the clean-up crew had arrived, and no one knew how he’d gotten away, which was still preying on his mind. Addy had stayed late after school due to some plumbing issues in her classroom and was working with her principal and the maintenance crew to fix it, so their date had been pushed back another hour. And earlier in the afternoon, Solene had taken her lunch break at his house, despite not receiving an invite, and bitched him out thoroughly.

 

I swear by all that’s holy. You hurt Addy in any way, break her heart or her pinkie toe, even by accident, and I’ll make your life a living hell,” she said, the words cold and concise. A threat by any measure, and one he knew to take to heart.

 

If Solene hadn’t meant the world to Addy, he could have ignored the woman. But she was Addy’s best friend, and she only had Addy’s interests at heart. How could he not respect her for that?

 

I treasure her. I’d never do anything to hurt her.” He looked her in the eye. “And I’d never allow anyone else to hurt her, either.”

 

She swallowed but didn’t step back. A sure sign of courage, since she knew he could take her out between one breath and the next.

 

Good.” She nodded. “One more thing. Just because she and I are best friends doesn’t mean we share everything. I am not on the menu.”

 

That had surprised him, that she’d needed to tell him what he already knew. “I take it others have made the assumption?”

 

She grimaced. “Yeah. It was so skeevy, but I couldn’t tell Addy because I didn’t want to hurt her feelings. She hadn’t been into the guy anyway, so it hadn’t mattered. But she can be a little self-conscious about her looks sometimes.”

 

Addy?” He snorted. “You have to be kidding me. She’s gorgeous.”

 

Solene smiled. “Yes, she is. Okay, enough said. Now what do you have I can eat? Oh, and I’m a huge fan of carbs.”

 

Noel had dealt with obstacles like that all day long, when he should have been focused on Addy. And here, another big one to overcome.

 

What a trip.” Hammer yawned. “I want nothing but a bed for the next twelve hours. I found out a few things, but I now have more questions than I did before I left.”

 

Yeah? Like what?” Deacon propped himself against Noel’s dresser, the little guy in his arms and starting to fuss.

 

They stood in his bedroom watching him hunt for a new outfit, one not covered in baby vomit. “Can it keep?” Noel growled, needing to concentrate on his evening with Addy, not more bad news. He couldn’t screw up with her again. He’d only get so many chances to convince the woman he wasn’t a bad bet.

 

Deacon patted the baby on the back. “Come on, Hammer. Noel’s getting ready to put it to his lady. We don’t want to be here when that happens.”

 

Hammer perked up. “Addy, right? His lady now? I go away for a few days and miss so much.”

 

I’ll fill you in. And I’ll get a pizza and beer if you keep that blonde barracuda off me while we babysit Noel Jr. We’re staying overnight, right, Noel?”

 

Hopefully.”

 

Hammer grinned. “Cool. I’ve been thinking.” The pair walked away with the baby while Noel continued his search. “How about we call him Monty? He’s a cute kid, and I’m a great guy. We should name him after someone grand.”

 

You claiming him as yours?” Deacon asked, his voice growing fainter.

 

The door opened. “Not exactly, but—”

 

Noel didn’t hear any more because they’d closed the door behind them. Much as he wanted to know what the hell Hammer had learned, it could wait. He had to calm his nerves, both excited and nervous about being with Addy again.

 

He had to get tonight perfectly right. He wanted her to feel so much pleasure, so much care, that she’d never want to leave him. Ever. Although he’d told her he wanted her after they cleaned up this mess, he didn’t know if she’d change her mind. He was a killer. He had no one to recommend him, nothing but a great house and the promise of millions behind him. But Addy didn’t know about his money, and she wasn’t the type to like a man for his wealth. She needed a guy with heart—and his had been encased in ice for more than a decade.

 

He ran a hand over his denim button-down shirt and jeans. He hadn’t worn shoes, because he didn’t like them in the home messing his floors. Deacon and Hammer would have to break that habit, and soon, before he broke them.

 

After slapping on a bit of cologne and making sure everything remained neat and tidy, he double-checked his stash of lube and condoms in the drawer and smiled.

 

He’d show her a night she’d never forget.
