Lovely story.

Her Sexy Marine Valentine by Candace Heavens is nothing but hot, sexy, and addictive. Her world of fiction is brilliantly spun together in a way that will leave readers falling in love with her characters. First, there's the inner conflict between two sexes, the outer conflict that both are struggling with and then the emotional struggles that come their way. Frustration, lust, and a whole lot of love ends up happening between two neighbors. What started out as a simple and a way to itch, their ...more

"Personal crises and internal conflicts threaten their happiness, but communication and honesty lead these soul mates to their happy ending. Mari and Brody’s chemistry is as intense as their emotional connection, making for a Uniformly Hot! love story that’s sizzling and sweet" (4 stars @ RT Book Reviews).

Sexy and sweet! I love when you can pick up a book and immediately lose yourself in the story. After the turn of a couple pages I had completely fallen for Broady and Mari. I stayed up reading into the wee hours to find their happy ending and it was well worth it!

So sorry my earlier 2 star review was incorrect and was for another book titled Daring her Seal by Anne Marsh. I really liked Her Sexy Marine Valentine. Final Rating: 4 Stars

I really enjoyed this book. I liked both the leads and I enjoyed their romance. There were a few clichéd subplots happening – she lacks confidence in bed because her douchebag ex said she sucked (and not in a good way), and he’s led to believe he needs a partner to secure a promotion – and I’ve read quite a few books with the same themes. But it didn’t detract from the story.

Brody lives across the road from Mari, and when he rescues her from her ex at the supermarket, she makes him dinner. She t

I listened to this book on Audible — at 1.5 speed making the narration okay for my tastes.
I enjoyed this book. For me it was a fun read with great characters, setting and plot. Believable and swoon-worthy.
I would read more by this author.

I won this book probably last February in a contest and finally got around to reading it. I was under no obligation to write a review though the author requested I do so if possible.

I whipped through HSMV and think it's probably my favorite Havens book. You basically know what you're getting when you read a Blaze. The connection has to be fast because the books are about 200 pages and the set up is fairly similar. What varies is the skill of the author. In the same number of pages can she (or he

I loved and enjoyed reading the sensational, amazing, Harlequin romance written by the wonderfully, talented author, Candace Havens.
Mari McGuire has recently been dumped by her long-time boyfriend and stuck with a Victorian fixer upper house. Across the street from Mari lives the sexy, handsome Lieutenant Brody Williams. Mari asks Brody to help her fix up her house, and she will fix him meals as payment. Brody agrees to Mari's terms on one condition that she pretends to be his girlfriend. Brody

I received a free copy through Goodreads.

Wow that was just the right amount of chemistry, steamness and hotness.

A win win set up between Mari and Brody lead to so much more, and why shouldn't it?! Like yum, so much hotness and chemistry between them, I was so eager to read what happened next and for some amazing scenes to appear. Happy to say readers won't be disappointed. There are a number of delicious and yummy scenes.

I like that not only do both parties come with baggage (emotional, men

Her Sexy Marine Valentine is my second book by Candace Havens and I liked it as much as the first. This fast read is a perfect choice for those with limited time for reading. Ms Havens has delivered a well written book. Mari and Brody's story is loaded with great characters, drama, humor and sizzle. I enjoyed Her Sexy Marine Valentine and look forward to reading more from Candace Havens in the future. There is no violence in this book. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Her Sexy Marine Valentine Candace Havens PB

I read for the enjoyment and this book fit the bill. It is an engaging story line that touches on an important problem with returning military, PTSD. Brody is not the only one who has a guilt problem. Mari also has guilt from a failed relationship.
I liked the idea that Mari's friendship helped Brody's men open up to him.
All in all it is a very good story with a satisfying ending.

Thank you Goodreads and Ms. Havens for the book. It was a refreshing chang
