SMOOTH MOVES is the second
book in Marie Harte's Veteran Movers series. Marie Harte is the queen
of writing stellar stories about hunks with a heart. Cash Griffin is a little
rough around the edges, but Marie Harte digs deep with these complex
characters. Cash has a lot of emotional stuff to sort out in his head.
The death of his mother is something that continues to reverberate for
him, and his relationship with his brother is always something to tries to
keep strong. Jordan Fleming is a fellow veteran who works with Cash
and is also going through a lot. Cash and Jordan find a way to help
each other, but with surprisingly sexy results.
What I love about a Marie Harte story is that it's usually character-
driven and the characters in the story are so multifaceted and amazing.
SMOOTH MOVES is a perfect
example of exactly why I'm a Marie Harte fan. The recent death of their
mother and the dysfunctional relationship that their parents had with
each other, and with them, has had a profound impact on the Griffin
brothers. Reid was always perceived to be the golden boy, while Cash
usually got the short end of the stick. Marie Harte does a phenomenal
job of painting a detailed portrait of this family and the flawed but
fabulous hero of this tale. Cash and Jordan compliment each other
perfectly. This hero and heroine are both strong, in more ways than
one, but they also have a soft spot when it comes to family. I love how
both provide support when they are at their most emotionally
vulnerable. I enjoy a hero and heroine with a lot of similarities who
make a great team, and this couple has that kind of magic.
SMOOTH MOVES has it all: great
character-driven storytelling, steamy encounters, and hunks with big
hearts. All the Vets on the Go! Moving crew are a lot of fun to read
about. The story involving Jordan's younger brother is a nice parallel
for Cash's past. The Griffin family drama is compelling, and I anxiously
await seeing how things progress in the next installment.
He may be all brawn
But when it really counts... His heart is all gold
Former Marine Cash Griffith is a brawny beacon for trouble,
always finishing a fight that someone else starts. Working
at his family's moving company, he does his best to keep a
low profile, but he can't help but tangle with the newest
employee, Jordan Fleming.
When Jordan joins Vets on the Go! she has her hands full
with her new job and her rebellious teenage brother, not to
mention going toe to toe with the obnoxious, arrogant,
incredibly hot Marine at work. Soon their battles turn to
camaraderie, and one kiss leads to a connection neither of
them expected. But when dark secrets come to light, will
their bond break...or strengthen into a happily-ever-after
they desperately desire?
