Man, I’ve been totally loving this series! ZERO TO SIXTY is the third book in the Body Shop Bad Boys series by Marie Harte. It features a bad boy in Sam Hamilton and a nice girl in Ivy Stephens. Now this book feels slightly different to the other books in the series because it has a softer touch to it. Ivy is a more of a reserved character and I think that affects the book a lot. She is also a sucker for a cute puppy and this puppy is what essentially brings them together.

Zero to Sixty was a sexy book! I haven't read any book other books in this series, but I am definitely interested in going back and reading the previous books! This book can definitely be read as a standalone, but I do think reading this book as a standalone will just make you want to go back and read the other books.

The plot of this book was fun and romantic. It was hard not to love a bad boy and a stray dog! I was pleasantly surprised with how well paced the book was. Romance nov
Although I think this is the best of the series yet, I feel that this might be the case of too much of a good thing. Marie Harte does a good job giving to us straight, contemporary romance featuring bad boys with a heart of gold. But this book is saturated - it is too over the top, too much testosterone, too much sweet, and too many misunderstandings. Good poolside reading for the upcoming summer.

Hi, mom! (waves) I'm about to write a review of this romance novel, so you might want to stop reading at this point. Just go ahead and "like" it, then click out of it...

Has she left?

Mom, really, you don't need to read this review. Please!


Whew. She's gone.

So, here we are. I've read several of Marie Harte's other books (the McCauley brothers series) and I must say that she's one of the better romantic fiction writers out there. I mean, her characters are realistic and funny, and there's actuall

Ivy has been through relationships before and she is in no hurry to find another man. Unless you're talking about Cookie; a stray dog that has been coming around her massage therapy business that she co-owns. And maybe Sam Hamilton. The sexy mechanic that has been taking care of Scruffy aka Cookie for months. He is all sorts of bad boy that just does it for her libido. As she gets to know him more and more, she finds out there is more to Sam Hamilton than meets the eye.

I was really intrigued by this. I liked Sam in the earlier books and I was looking forward to his story.

Unfortunately, as I got to know him, I was not really all that fond of him. I liked Ivy, and I enjoyed the scenes with them together, but I was really not that fond of Sam, which was disappointing.

I was never really able to engage with the story as a whole, as there were a lot of parts of it that was focused on Sam.

This is another book I read months and months ago now and while I’m sketchy on details, I know I loved it, specially Sam Hamilton, the hero. He’s one of my favourite kind of heroes, a gruff teddy bear type who is shy around women but when he falls for one, he’s totally wrecked for her. And when the hero also falls for a cute little puppy – well, I’m all over it.

Sam and Ivy, our heroine meet and begin to bond over puppy. Sam is kind of feeling lost. His coworkers who are also his best buddies are

While the cover of the book shows one absolutely hot, tatted, alpha looking guy, sadly for me he was nice to look at but didn't really deliver. I adored the fact he rescued puppies. I hated the fact he acts like Winnie the Pooh's Eeyore on anti-depressants. He was extremely down on himself, was paranoid his friends were all leaving him behind and seemed to be setting himself up for failure at least where Ivy is concerned.

I'm all about alpha heroes who are sure of themselves. I tried to give him

Easy on the eyes, tough on the heart and detrimental to the hormones. Marie Harte is an author after my own heart. There is nothing more toxic to the hormonal chemistry than a man with a puppy (except maybe a single dad). The fact that Sam was a bad boy raised the hot level tenfold. More bark than bite, Ms. Harte made it hard for me to decide who I loved more Sam and his wounded bear act or the matchmaking puppy with the hidden agenda. Zero to Sixty is a savory romance that blends humor, heart a ...more

Sam is so sweet with his words, "he nodded, grabbed her by the arm, then dragged her to the door. “Exactly. Now unless you want to be effed up against the back of the door, condom or no condom, I think you’d better get your fine *** in the car.” I loved this book, Sam kept me well entertained.

Sam Hamilton is a mechanic with a rocky past and though he looks and sometimes acts like an alpha bad boy he’s definitely a sweet teddy bear deep down. Sam helps Willie, an elderly and hilarious woman, save stray animals and when a little puppy doesn’t seem to want to stay in once place it leads Sam to Ivy Stephens door. Ivy is a massage therapist who has just gotten out of a rocky relationship. Though the two are attracted to one another Ivy isn’t willing to get into another relationship. Then ...more

I wasn't too sure about this one when I started it as Sam wasn't a favorite of mine, he was just a little too much for me. So color me surprised when I ended up loving Sam. I loved how open and honest he was with Ivy, sometimes a bit too much. It was funny to see Ivy react at first, she wasn't sure what to think, but quickly realized she would know where she always stood with Sam. These two were cute together, as Ivy told Sam, they both were messed up with crazy families, but to each other they ...more

I love Sam but I may just have to draw the line he doesn't like Buckaroo Banzai, that's a breaking point for me. LOL!

Zero to Sixty book three of Marie Harte's Body Shop Bad Boys series. Mmmm, there is something about big strong silent bearded men.

Sam is a true gentle giant. Ivy is the luckiest girl by far. I was surprised by how funny, Zero to Sixty, was. Sam seems like such a serious man, but has a funny side too. And boy watch out, when Ivy finds her backbone, I definitely wouldn't want to be on her bad side.

Johnny dubbed Sam “McSteroid” (in Test Drive ) and I wanted to know two things: why was he given that moniker, and what is the origin of Sam’s deep-seated anger.

Sam Hamilton is a behemoth who gives everyone pause. He’s an imposing figure at six-foot-four, with tattoos, and a chip on his shoulder larger than The Grand Canyon. Sam generally unwinds by having a few drinks with the guys, or fighting in illegal matches where the rule is- there are none. He never turns away from a fi

I have been following Marie Harte's Body Shop Bad Boys series quite sincerely. That is why I was looking forward to reading Zero to Sixty which is Sam Hamilton's book. I like the tone of this series. It focuses on hard working men and their bonds of friendship and family. Overall, Zero to Sixty was a good read but it definitely did not blow me away or anything. It was enjoyable enough for me.

Okay, so let's start with Sam. Sam Hamilton is best friends with Foley Sanders who was the hero of the pr

Love the bad boys? This series is for you. This third book features Sam. Sam is kind of a jerk and quite insecure with his relationships. Why? Because he knows what it is like to be tossed aside and unwanted no matter what you do. This story broke my heart a little. We learn about Sam in a previous book as he sabotage's his best friend's relationship. To learn more about the backstory, reading this series in order would help.

Yes! I've been waiting for Sam's story since book #1 and it didn't disappoint!
I loved the first two books but this series is definitely going from strength to strength. Each book tops the one before but they're all good. They're well written and are fun and lighthearted, even when dealing with the more serious back stories.

Sam caught my attention immediately in book one. I was drawn to him and just knew he'd have a good story to tell. There's more to the brooding fighter, who rarely cracks a smi
I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. I've never read anything by Marie Harte and it was the third book in the series. That can always be tricky, but it wasn't really an issue with this one. I'd say it can be read as a standalone tho since I enjoyed this one and the characters from the previous books seem super fun I'd say go ahead and read books 1 and 2.

Sam Hamilton is a rough and tough mechanic, Ivy Stephens is a massage therapist, and Cookie is the little puppy that brings them together. I’ll be honest, I thought it sounded a little boring at first. Especially since I was expecting to face the familiar “gruff alpha bad boy” trope that seems to run rampant through romance these days. That’s not always a bad thing, but I feel like a lot of the time it’s done quite poorly.
