ARC Review: Marco by Melissa Schroeder

Marco is the quiet one of the four brothers which works well for his career as a Navy Seal. Living in Hawaii is a dream come true, his only probably is the infatuation he has for his landlady. He’s not sure he wants to act on his attraction until his brothers push Marco’s temper with a little harmless flirting.

Alana Kailikea is a woman who understands loss. Her entire family was killed when she was only eighteen, leaving her an heiress. A bad experience with gold digger has left her wary of most men—especially gorgeous men like Marco. She never expected him to ask her out, or that it would lead to a romance that has them burning up the sheets. Still, she tells him that an affair is all she wants.

Marco doesn’t want an affair—he wants forever. He agrees to her idea of an affair determined to use every chance she gives to convince her that they were made for each other.

Readers are swept away to beautiful Hawaii for this installment in the Santini series. We are treated to the sexy SEAL Marco. He is the quiet brother. He’s not shy and when he notices that Alana is not taking notice of his immense attraction to her he has no problem letting her know exactly how he sees her.

Alana loves to look at her new neighbor. He is a sexy treat to behold. She also knows that with his job he is a temporary fixture on the island. She has seen many people come and go from the rental next to her. She does not need to let the charming SEAL next door in only to watch him walk away with her heart.

Alana and Marco each have to learn how to let others into their lives for them to find their happiest place with one another. Each of them has difficulties with this, but for completely different reasons. Alana has been burned by a past lover. Marco knows his career keeps him on the move. Thinking all the wrong possibilities keeps Marco and Alana from really having the absolute best of each other.

I am totally digging Mel’s Santini series! The books each work as a stand-alone, so you can jump into this sexy group of brothers in any order. I still think Joey Santini is my favorite Santini though. Maryanne is adjusting to her new family just fine. She was welcomed with open arms and she is ready to do the same to others. I was pleased that we got some page time with all four of the brothers together at the same time.
