Smooth Moves by Marie Hart _ Book Review


Amazon  Goodreads

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.





Caffeine addict, boy referee, and romance aficionado, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Harte has over 100 books published with more constantly on the way. She’s a confessed bibliophile and devotee of action movies. Whether hiking in Central Oregon, biking around town, or hanging at the local tea shop, she’s constantly plotting to give everyone a happily ever after.

[I was gifted a physical copy for an honest review]

Smooth Moves is the second book in Marie Harte’s series, Veteran Movers. If you haven’t read the first book, no worries this can be read as a stand alone, I haven’t and it didn’t take away from how much I enjoyed it. The characters made this book. I couldn’t get enough of the sarcasm and ball busting between them. I found myself chuckling out loud throughout the whole book.

“Wait. You just had your way with me, and now you’re kicking me out? Damn, Jordan. That’s cold.”
I love a grumpy hero and Cash Griffith fit that role perfectly. He’s beefy, rough around the edges, and a bit of a neanderthal but he’s a marshmallow on the inside. He is protective and takes care of those he cares for. He grew up being treated worthless by his parents, so he doesn’t think he’s worthy of Jordan which broke my heart. It also really aggravated me when everyone would make fun of the fact that he’s not very smart, it seemed a bit excessive and unnecessary. Jordan is seriously bad a**, sarcastic, she can defend herself and an overall kind and caring person. Together the sexual chemistry was hot and heavy. It was made even better by the fact that they brought their jokes and sarcasm into the bedroom. I loved how they supported and believed in each other, especially when they were feeling unworthy.
“Of course I know why you love me. I’m Little Army, and I conquered Mount Griffith.”
This was my first Marie Harte book but it will definitely not be my last. I am especially looking forward to more books in the Veteran Movers series.
