Ex-Marine Cash Griffith is a beacon for trouble. Working for the family moving company, he does his best to keep a low profile, but he can’t help finishing a fight someone else starts. There’s one person at work who annoys and baffles him. But if he even thought about taking her on, she’d put him down. Hard. Which is a real problem, because Cash wants nothing more than to tangle with sexy Jordan Fleming.

The ex-Army MP has her hands full with her new job and her rebellious teenage brother. Getting him through summer school is a chore. Figuring out what to do with her life now that she’s a civilian is disheartening. But one thing she lives for—doing battle with the obnoxious, arrogant, incredibly hot Marine at work.

Their battles turn into true camaraderie, then into something more. Helping each other out with family problems, Cash and Jordan learn to trust each other. One kiss leads to another, and friendship starts turning to love. But when dangerous secrets come to light, their bond will either break or strengthen into a future they both deserve.


Cash Griffith is an ex-marine with a hot temper. As a matter of fact, it was due to a display of his temper that helped get his brother's moving business off the ground. Cash works hard on maintaining peace, but there is someone that always ruffles his feathers, Jordan Fleming, an employee of their moving company. Cash makes it no secret that he desires Jordan, a strong ex-Army MP.

However, Jordan's hands are quite full caring for her brother Rafi. His parents sent him to her while he attends summer school and he is not making it easy. Meanwhile, although she is good at her job as a mover, she wants to do more with her life. Putting Cash off is becoming a challenge.

As things progress, however, both Cash and Jordan realize that they can actually help each other with practical things, so a truce a drawn. This leads to much more and their fates just might be changed forever.

I really enjoyed this book by Marie Harte. It is the second in a new series and I had just read the first one, The Whole Package. So, I knew some of the challenges facing Cash and he had already wormed his way into my heart. I loved the conflicts this book presented as well.  It is a nice addition to the series, and the third book Handle with Care, was a delightful read as well.
