Welcome to Steamy Saturday!
Today is the day that I post a review of a book from the steamier side of romance. Again this week, I’m posting a review of a Harlequin Blaze book. I just love these little books! Also, to risk pointing out the obvious, look at the cover…..this is obviously a great book!
Model Marine by Candace Havens
Publisher: Harlequin Blaze
Release: November 2011
Source: I purchased this book to read and review
Subject: Captain Will Hughes, U.S. Marine Corps
Current Status: On assignment in NYC – suddenly recruited to shed the uniform!
Mission: Serve as a model, muse and man-toy without running afoul of the general.
Obstacle: Hannah Harrington, fashion world It girl.
Hannah narrowly escapes Fashion Week disaster by hijacking gorgeous Will for her runway show – after all, rock-hard abs are the ultimate accessory. His good deed nearly lands him in the brig, but he’ll risk anything to get back into her bed….
Hannah can’t figure out how this model marine got under her skin – they’re complete opposites! But sexy Will not only ignites her senses, he fuels her creativity: an irresistible combination, even if it can’t last. Can two steamy weeks together satisfy their lust…or will they have to extend this mission?
Take one stressed fashion designer and one duty bound yummy marine, combine that with some off the charts chemistry and you have the hot little read called Model Marine
Hannah Harrington is determined to compete with the “big girls and boys” at Fashion Week in New York City. Disaster looms when two of her models doesn’t show. She runs out into the street to find some men with the perfect backsides to show off her clothes. Just when it seems that she is doomed, she meets Will Hughes and his friend Rafael. She tells them that she is a damsel in distress and needs their help desperately! Next thing the men know, they have been stripped down and re-dressed in Hannah’s new line of jeans and are being sent out onto the runway to model the jeans. The press goes wild at the sight of these yummy men, they end up on the front pages of the papers, and Hannah becomes the Fashion World’s instantaneous “It Girl”. The problems start when Will’s father – the general – finds out about the modeling and threatens to throw Will in the brig.
This is a great little read! As you all know, I’m fond of the books that come along in my Harlequin Blaze subscription. This one is a prime example. Hannah is determined to make a name for herself in the Fashion world. Nothing has gotten in her way that her determination can’t get beyond, until she meets Will Hughes. She doesn’t have time for a relationship and is happy with a one night stand, until the next morning when she wants another night. Will is a career track Marine in charge of security for some visiting diplomats. He doesn’t have time for a career, and he has a father that seems determined to keep Hannah out of his life.
The chemistry is hot, the compatibility factor is high, this book can be read in a couple of hours when stuck at a dance studio or skating rink, and it fits nicely in my purse. This book gets an A from me! Pick up a copy and enjoy!
