Reviewed by Larissa M.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Marie Harte’s final book in her super sexy McCauley Brothers series, What to Do with a Bad Boy, fittingly ties up this series…but is a bit of a disappointment. Not as fabulous as the previous books, this one still gives you an interesting romance by bringing together widow Mike McCauley and spunky Delilah Webster.

In her previous McCauley books, Ms. Harte paired together each of the McCauley brothers with the love of their lives. A fitting female to match them. So I was a little worried about how she would tie together the diehard widow Mike. If you’ve read the other books, you know he had his ‘soul mate’ and lost her during the birth of their son. And he was very adamant about never loving again. Now a single father, Mike is more than a little guarded about dating and being set up. In this story however, he finally gives in to his mother’s attempts and goes out with a neighbor of his mothers who is just like the woman he lost. He also ‘dates’ Del. Only he doesn’t really do much more than sleep with Del through most of the book. There were times I wanted to smack him up side the head for stringing her along and using her. But when the light dawned he was the McCauley type man we know and love. Unfortunately for me it felt like it should have come sooner. My lack of enthusiasm wasn’t so much a struggle with Mike falling in love, but he was stupid about it. He hurt Del and I’m not sure I would have forgiven him as easy as she did. But ultimately, Del was awesome. She had her own personal issues, but she got through them and let herself fall for Mike and when she did she gave him everything. She was near perfect even when dealing with the spiteful other woman.

All-in-all this was one that I wouldn’t have wanted to miss if reading the whole series. But standalone it wasn’t as great as the others. As with the other books, though, I did enjoy seeing a glimpse at where the other couples were in their lives. It’s neat to see how they are still going strong.

Served Hot by Marie Harte – Review

Reviewed by Cara M.

Rating: ★★★★★

Following up on the super fabulous first book, Served Cold, Marie Harte gives you the second book in her Best Revenge series. Served Hot will keep you on edge wondering just how Dexter will win Maya over…and just why Maya is fighting him so hard!

When three friends get together for their weekly wine night, they make a pack to get revenge on the boys (now men!) who did them wrong in high school. For Maya Werner, she really wants to get back at Dexter Black for blackmailing her into being his prom date. Only what Maya really wants is to know why he did it in the first place!

And when award-winning photojournalist Dexter turns up back in town to open a small studio, it seems like the perfect time to get started. Only fate often has the upper hand, and when Dex witnesses Maya doing something that could get her into trouble…again!…he has the upper hand. He uses it to once again blackmail her into dating him!

Ms. Harte has written a warm, moving story that makes you laugh at the same time as it makes you sigh. Her characters are so well written. Dex is the hunky, smart and definitely drool worthy hero. He also has no trouble following his feelings back to the one girl he always crushed on. And he knows Maya so well. Her prickly, independent nature doesn’t put him off. He knows exactly how to manipulate her into being where they both belong. Maya is a little harder to like. She is prickly, almost to the point of being selfish or off-putting at times, but she’s loyal to a fault. Her endearing quality is what redeems her. She has a soft center. Her prickly shell hides it. But it’s there. So all-in-all these two are well suited.  A definite must read!
