It’s “Look, but don’t touch.” Until the object of Hailey’s fantasies catches her looking and demands she touch him. Everywhere.

Hailey Jennison is smart, funny and, unfortunately, stacked like a blonde brick house. She’s well aware the impact her looks have on the male gender, and she hates it. Socially awkward, she keeps to a safe, boring routine, meeting friends once a we

This is a great short read for in between books. Especially when looking for something more along the smutty side. Not a lot of depth, besides the penetration ;) but it was a sweet and sexy insta-love story.

Another short fast and hot read. The hero has two older hot brothers. I wouldn't mind reading about them either. Would have liked this to be a full length story.

Really cute read. Her insecurities and "issues" started bugging me, but I loved that he didn't give up on her because of them. This is sort of a twist on friends-to-lovers in that they weren't friends first. But he'd noticed her six months before he "caught" her watching him and had done his homework on her. Sounds a little stalkerish when it's written like that, but he wasn't following her around or doing anything stalkerish that way. I really hope this will be a series... Gage's brother was wo ...more

I really wished it was written longer. The story is fast-paced, not dull, really cute and quite funny. The sex is AMAZING , they both have the hots for each other long before they actually meet like falling in love at first sight and just don't have the courage to 'approach and to ask out' (especially with Gage to Hailey and in actuality that Gage is the first one to notice and be extremely attracted and be obsessed with Hailey) and Hailey's overcoming of her doubts and insecurities with Gage's ...more

I admit, I’m really not a fan of love-at-first-sight novellas. I’ve never been a big believer in it. However, I am happy to say that this love-at-first-sight novella had me sighing in contentment. I was quite pleased with it. The male character was confident without being overwhelmingly arrogant or overbearing. It was a nice change from the annoyingly perfect, completely

4.5 Stars

Enjoying The Show is one of those books I’ve read multiple times; I simply love the humor and the connection between the two main characters. It’s hard not to like an ultra sexy man with a crush who decides to blackmail the object of his affection into a date. Equally intriguing is a woman who is disturbingly sexy but hates her body and shies away from male attention. Add in the fact that they both have problems talking with the oppo
The beginning was hysterical. The middle cute. The end was fine but I wanted more.
Really, she should have kept the girlfriends in the mix of the story. She wrote that best.
Basically, guy sees girl and wants girl but she is known to reject all men. So he waits and plots and damn if she doesn't move. Fortunatey her girlfriend lives across from him so when he sees the girls spying on him when he is naked he puts on a show and continues to do so every friday for three months just because he likes t

I don't really know how I feel about this book. Dissapointed maybe?


Some parts were good and some parts were bad. Really bad.

The Good

I like Gage. I like Gage quite a lot actually. But I'm not sure about the prancing-around-naked aspect to turn Hailey on. It was all quite a bit messed up to say the least. The book had promise and maybe it's me.

Dear Book,


I'm in the mood for a lovely deep and heart-wrenching beauty of a romance. This was light fluffy fun-ish. If you're in that kind of mood

Very cute and steamy quick read by Marie Harte. I loved the primary characters as well as the secondary ones, and I can't wait to read Closing the Deal now! For a short story, Harte did an excellent job describing the characters and the emotions. I love her style of writing and look forward to her backlist. And, yeah, YUM!

Passionate and smart, nicely written. Hailey has the typical female insecurities despite her cover model looks, yet the author handles them well without making our heroine seem like a pansy. The voyeurism added a nice element as well.

Sexy Little Bite of Yum

It's innocent, if slightly indecent fun. About as indecent as the shy and a little uptight Hailey Jennison gets, actually. She and her friends get together every Friday night for some very specific girl time. Gathering around the window in her friend's apartment, lights off, snacks and drinks in hand, they look out the window and down into the apartment of the man they refer to as Mr. Tool.

The man is smoking hot and has a habit of walking around his apartmen
This was nice. I didn't expect anything too deep already with the premise, but it delivered enough that it passed like a hot, light-hearted and even cute, read. I was initially skeptical to pick it up, because i wasn't sure I heard of the author before. Confirming my thoughts though, I ended up pleasantly surprised I had read something by Marie Harte before! I liked How to Handle a Heartbreaker a lot. Although I didn't read all of the McCauley Brothers series' books (read all except the first an ...more

It is a cute short read with amazing secondary characters, lots of sex and a unique opening..

The story starts with our heroine Hailey running to her friend's house.. There is of course a great reason for that, his name is Gage.. The girls made a tradition some months ago and every Friday night they get together in order to ogle the sexy naked neighbor across the street with the huge -how may i put this delicately? um....-equipment??

Gage one night finds Hailey on her own, then the fun starts..

Enjoying The Show is a great read I only wish was longer. Hailey’s the embodiment of every man’s fantasy, but no one seems to get her as excited as her friend’s sexy exhibitionist neighbor who always gives her and her group of friends the best girl’s night out.

She fantasizes about him all the time until one day she happens to meet him face-to-face. She learns his name is Gage and he is pissed! He’s tired of Hailey and her friends constantly spying on him, and he threatens to turn her into the po

Mr Tool is HOT!!!

I read this book a few years back and remembered how much I enjoyed it and decided to do a re-read.

This story is about a shy, reserved woman trapped in a strippers body. She and her girlfriends are having a get together and notice a man standing in his window across the way completely naked. He notices her as well but they do not act on their instant attraction to each other. The mystery man, who the girls named Mr Tool, becomes their weekly show. He struts his stuff, while work

This was pretty harmless, and blessedly a short read. The premise was good: Hailey and her friends perving on super-sexy Gage from their apartment. It would've been even sexier if it was just Hailey doing the perving, and Gage had put on a little show for her. As it was, the girls all came off a little sleazy and desperate.

The sex scenes were hot, but I could have done without the bulk of Hailey and Gage's dialogue happening during it. Hailey sabotaged herself with her

What a pleasant surprise ! I really enjoyed reading that one !
I loved both main characters, though Hailey was a bit too much insecure - but it wasn't a big deal.
I really loved Gage, the way he puts his foot in his mouth, that he's not an overbearing dominating male but a really sweet and funny guy who doesn't know how to act upon his crush.
I loved the banter between all the characters, I loved Gage's family and look forward to more stories about his brothers, I loved the girlfriends at the beg

I love how Enjoying the Show opens. It’s a girls’ night in, and the ladies aren’t playing fair. They’re dimming the lights, clinking glasses, and observing a sexy neighbor through a window…and let’s just say he’s not quite decent.

Great writing combines with a cute plot to make this an enjoyable read from start to finish. Gage has just enough insecurity and vulnerability to make him realistic and not-too-perfect.

Hailey is adorable and has some funny, mischief-making friends. Every girl needs fri

I picked up Enjoying the Show after reading the blurb on Amazon and thinking it sounded like a hot & fun read.

I really enjoyed it. Hot, steamy with a touch of blackmail, some fun and a fair dose of romance & tenderness.
I loved the main characters and the dynamic between Gage and Hailey was fun to follow.
The couple's friends and family members that we are introuduced to throughout the book were likeable and I'm sure we'll meet some of them again in future stories - as the first of 3 books

The first of the Wicked Warrens was a blast!!
Two people who have desired each other from afar for months are finally given an opportunity to meet face to face under the most outrageous of circumstances!!
Just when you think a little voyeurism can’t hurt anybody, you get caught ogling your friend’s HOT, naked neighbour, by none other than said HOT guy!!!
Things get hot and heavy from there and our couple are forced to question whether their physical chemistry is all they have going for them.

It was longer then a short story but was still enjoyable all the same. This book sizzled with it's naughtiness. The writer went there and did it in a decent form.

Cute story. The secondary characters are actually much stronger and enjoyable than the primaries, but entertaining and sweet. The two amazing looking woe-is-me protagonists, nobody bothers to see me for more than my body is a bit overplayed. The lead-in is hysterical, but the heroine comes across as a bit ditzy falling into the hero's trap to get her to date him. Honestly, they both come across as not the brightest bulbs in the pack, but loveable.

This short novella of only 80 pages or so was a good story, but had so much unrealized potential. The plot would have made for a great full-length book where the reader could get a complete sense of the characters-- as is, it was mostly a sex romp that didn't offer anything special and emphasized the lack of depth. A good read, but not worth the money paid-- admittedly, my fault for not checking the page count before download.

This is the first book in the Wicked Warren's series and it's quite clear to me that Marie has improved alot since this book came out. It was an okay read, but I didn't feel a lot of chemistry between Hailey and Gage, so when Gage started dirty talking right off the bat it kind of made me cringe (and believe me, I'm a fan of dirty talking). I liked the introduction to the rest of the family, and while this one is not my favourite it doesn't deter me from reading the rest of the series.

Erotic story about a woman who sees a man naked in the window of his apartment. He lives across from her friend's apartment and they have been getting together to watch him. Then Gage sees them and wants to get together with Hailey. He admits that he knew they were watching and has wanting to met Hailey for months. Then he talks her into going out with him and things get hot.

It was short but so hot. Starts off with a little voyeur action with some girls peeping at a guy in their apartment complex, but little do they know that he is aware of their "girl's night in" and is willing to give them a show if it will give him a chance to get to know one of the girls, Hailey.

Horribly short and boring! There was no development, the issues she had were stupid and really were never explained. How 2 ppl go from strangers to lovers so quick is soooo unrealistic. This is one the worst books I have ever read. I was so bored with the little bit of plot there was.

It was okay. Some of the writing was a bit adolescent. But the plot moved pretty well, and both main characters each had healthy relationships with other people, unlike many other romances, in which a poor orphan girl would have no other close female friends.
