USMC helicopter pilot Michael McCade has two goals: Get his damn back into alignment and keep his nose clean until his commanding officer clears him to fly again. The doctor-recommended massage therapy seems like a necessary step toward returning to the cockpit, but when his too-hot-to-handle neighbor, Chloe Kincaid, turns out to be his masseuse, he strays from the straight and narrow in a major way. 
Chloe Kincaid is looking for a simple, no strings attached, ego-boosting hook up. But when her positively panty-melting neighbor, USMC Major Michael McCade, (aka Major Hottie), shows up on her massage table, she lets desire get the better of professionalism. Now theyre pretending to be engaged to avoid a whole lot of unanticipated consequences of a momentary lapse in judgment. But can a girl who avoids attachments at all costs fake an engagement to a straight-arrow soldier without falling hard?

Thoughts:


This book should be titled 'Falling into a quivering pile of girly bits for the Marine', but I guess that might be a tad too long. It would be the truth though! 

Chloe Kincaid works as a massage therapist for a temp agency, which is the perfect job for this free-spirited young lady. Currently stationed at Camp Pendleton she is in the midst of  preparing for a romantic rendezvous with a male friend when just as she clips the hand-cuffs together her answering machine clicks on with a message...her paramour cancels for the night. Frustrated, both sexually and mentally, the keys to the cuffs slip through her fingers and into the floor vent. In walks her sexy neighbor to the rescue,  USMC Major Michael McCade. 
Intrigued as soon as he hears her voice yelling for help, Michael makes a bet with Chloe and wins a kiss. A kiss that he can't get out of his head. But when he see's her again in the clinic for a mandatory massage due to an injury, that is when the sparks really fly.
Forced to portray an engaged couple after being caught in the act during an illicit liaison, Micheal and Chloe are forced in even closer quarters and those initial sparks of chemistry turn into an inferno. But what happens when Micheal decides that he wants to play for keeps and all Chloe wants to do is run?

Falling for the Marine is a true story of 'opposites attract'. While Chloe is a dandelion floating in the breeze, Michael is the strong and firm earth that the dandelion finally falls to. The opening scene sets the tone for the entire story and with Samanthe Beck's easy and flowing writing style, I was captivated from the first page and I stayed glued until the very end. Humorous, heart warming, and just plain HOT, you can't help but fall for all of these characters. I absolutely loved reading about Trevor's brother! It was an uphill battle for Michael throughout the story and I enjoyed every minute of it. And the obvious bond between the McCade brothers just added another element to hook me. Their sarcastic banter and good natured ribbing had me laughing out loud at times.  And Micheal and Chloe's 'Story for their grandchildren', gah, so darn sweet! If you like a man in uniform then I definitely recommend you pick up Falling for the Marine today. It can be read as a stand-alone but if you would like to get the full scope on the McCade's and all their nuances  I recommend you reading up Lover Undercover first. You won't regret it. I can't wait for the next McCade Brother!
