Marine for Hire (Front and Center) by Tawna Fenske Review ~Kami

Marine for Hire (Front and Center)


Tawna Fenske traveled a career path that took her from newspaper reporter to English teacher in Venezuela to marketing geek to PR manager for her city’s tourism bureau. An avid globetrotter and social media fiend, Tawna is the author of the popular blog, Don’t Pet Me, I’m Writing, and a member of Romance Writers of America. She lives with her gentleman friend in Bend, Oregon, where she’ll invent any excuse to hike, bike, snowshoe, float the river, or sip wine on her back deck. She’s published several romantic comedies with Sourcebooks, including Making Waves and Believe it or Not, as well as the interactive fiction caper, Getting Dumped, with Coliloquy and the novella Eat, Play, Lust, with Entangled Publishing. Her quirky brand of comedy and romance has won praises from RT Book Reviews, which nominated Making Waves for Contemporary Romance of the Year, and from the Chicago Tribune, which noted, "Fenske's wildly inventive plot & wonderfully quirky characters provide the perfect literary antidote to any romance reader's summer reading doldrums.”

Sam the marine is approached by a friend to become a nanny. “Someone who can cook and who’s great with kids and housekeeping and M40 sniper rifles.” I always appreciate Tawna Fenske's writing. She is very good and funny. I thought this set up was really predictable and reminded me of that movie with Vin Diesel, The Pacifier. Sheri is a recently single mother of twins and she doesn't want to have anything to do with Marines like her brother. Sam is a friend of her brother who was told to take care of her, not to make a move on her but he is also very attracted to her. Even with the predictable premise, I liked it and thought it was an entertaining, cute little romance. It was also a fast paced story. It was naughty and clever and had me laughing out loud. 4 stars.
