I did enjoy this book, mostly because of the humorous inner dialogue of Sheri. Not to mention several different characters we meet throughout the book. Sheri was constantly talking and many of her thoughts were really funny if a little self-depreciating. But that just served to make Sheri more relatable. Everyone probably gets down on themselves mentally(I know I do) so this inner dialogue made Sheri even more real than she had already appeared.
Then there was Sam. He carries a weight all his own around and I am just glad that I don't have to carry it. It great to see that he wasn't as perfect as he seemed. There are things that trip him up and not even he can do everything well the first time. It definitely made him human.
I also enjoyed the fact that we got time with the twins, mostly with their mother or Sam. It was those cute little things that the twins did that definitely made the book stand out to me.
This book is great in the relationships and characters that were brought to life. Nothing and nobody was too perfect or too wacky or anything like that. It was perfect in that way and I think that the characters really brought the story to life. Marine for Hire is being released on July 21st according to Goodreads. Go give it a look!
