Evan Griffith has had a hell of a day...
And that was before he met the stunning, sexy woman having a meltdown.
Evan Griffith has had many careers in his life. But who knew working for his family’s moving company would hold just as much action as his stint in the Marine Corps? On an unforgettable job, Evan finds himself taken by a teenage conman and confronted by a woman wielding a knife—and promptly falls head over heels for her.
Kenzie Sykes is doing her best to raise her little brother and keep him out of jail—all while dealing with her own broken heart that just hasn’t healed. She doesn’t have time for romance. He’s not asking... Until he is, and she finds herself saying yes.

Praise for Marie Harte:
“With a protective alpha hero that stole my heart instantly, The Whole Package was sexy, sweet, and thoroughly satisfying.”—LAUREN LAYNE, New York Times bestselling author, for The Whole Package
“Marie Harte at her best! The Whole Package delivered everything I love—hot alpha, a strong woman, and amazing writing!”—DONNA GRANT, New York Times bestselling author, for The Whole Package
“Terrific. I absolutely loved this story.”—Night Owl Reviews, TOP PICK for The Only Thing
“Another exceptionally red-hot romance by Marie Harte with a strong yet sweet hero!”—Fresh Fiction for Just the Thing
Harte adds a charming, energetic third installment to her Veteran Movers contemporary series (after Smooth Moves). Former Marine Evan Griffith is shifting from a career in accounting to one with his cousins' veterans-only moving company. He's also trying to helping his aging mother, who seems to have found a new lease on life. While Evan's not looking for romance, he falls head over heels for Kenzie Sykes during a particularly memorable moving job. Kenzie, trying to forget the heartbreak of a past relationship, keeps busy with the graphic design studio she runs with her somewhat sketched-in two best friends and her troublemaking younger brother, Daniel. Evan is determined to prove himself to Kenzie, from helping with her taxes to befriending her brother, but only Kenzie can decide whether she's willing to pursue their growing passion. The bonds between the characters give the simple plot some depth, but the ending wraps up far too quickly for satisfaction. Still, this straightforward and steamy story will please series fans.

Loved it from beginning to end
HANDLE WITH CARE by Marie Harte is a delightful read for the contemporary romance reader and fans of buff, tenderhearted, ex-military heroes, fun, quirky characters, and a well-told love story.
From the very first chapter you can’t help but root for the heroine, Kenzie Sykes. She’s got her hands full between running her business, raising her 13-year-old brother, Daniel, and mending a broken heart. In walks Evan Griffith, ex-Marine and mover for Vets on the Go! Not only is he drop dead gorgeous, but he’s kind and thoughtful. Kenzie and Evan are immediately drawn to each other, and it’s clear they are a perfect fit if Kenzie can trust he won’t break her heart.
Evan’s had his own heartache, losing his fiancé to cancer, but Kenzie is the woman to heal his broken heart.
A fun read from between Daniel’s antics and a whole host of quirky characters from Vets on the Go! to Kenzie’s opinionated, caring friends.
Marie Harte has a real talent for developing memorable characters, engaging dialogue, sensual romance, and a story that stays with the reader long after they read the end.
