THE WHOLE PACKAGE is the first
book in Marie Harte's Movin' On series built around a small business
created and run by military veterans. Due to his older brother, and
business partner, Cash playing hero, Reid Griffith's moving business
Vets on the Go! has more business than they know how to handle. PR
maven and savvy businesswoman Naomi Starr has the expertise Reid
needs, but she needs to build a client base. As Naomi and Reid work
together, they find that they are compatible personally as well as
professionally. Marie Harte writes a superb character-driven romance
with complex and charismatic characters to die for.
Reid Griffith is everything you could want in a man - strong, sexy,
smart, and sweet. What gives Naomi pause about becoming
romantically involved with Reid, is the disaster that happened the last
time she mixed business with pleasure. For his part, Reid is slow to
attempt a relationship with Naomi because of the head trip his parents
did on him and his brother when they were growing up. Their parents
leave Reid and Cash with a feeling of inferiority in different ways. Naomi
has her own issues and feelings of inadequacy, but it's mainly from
pressure and expectations she puts on herself. Reid and Naomi help
each other's self-esteem while offering love, emotional support, and
super steamy sexy times. Because this story is told from alternating
perspectives, you get a great sense of who the main characters are and
what motivates them. Reid and Naomi are both extremely driven and
aggressive when it comes to pursuing what they want in life, but they
are equally two big softies where it really counts.
THE WHOLE PACKAGE is another
example of Marie Harte's spellbinding storytelling and the way she
excels at creating awesome alpha heroes. The death of Reid and Cash's
mother and their family drama is something that haunts them and will
echo through the next book in this series. In THE WHOLE PACKAGE, Marie Harte balances humor,
passion, and human drama. I look forward to reading about all the other
fab characters in this Movin' On series. It's great seeing cameos from
characters in other Marie Harte books like Gavin Donnigan. I look
forward to reading Cash's story in the next Movin' On romance.
Always the caretaker, former Marine Reid Griffith wants to
help his brother adjust to civilian life...and help other
former servicemen. What better way to utilize their brawn,
discipline, and charm than a moving company that hires
veterans? But although Reid prides himself on being
strategic, he certainly doesn't plan to fall in the
spotlight of one brilliantóand beautifulóPR whiz...
PR expert Naomi Starr is determined to bring Vets on the Go!
into the spotlight. But when she meets Reid, it might mean
breaking her rule to never mix business with pleasure.
Especially once she discovers that underneath Reid's sexy
rough-and-tumble exterior is a vulnerable man who just might
need what she's got to give.
