Marie James ~ Heroic Measures ~ Release Blitz / Teasers / ARC Review


Marie James

Release Date: August 3







Opposites don’t just attract.

They captivate.

They entice.

They beckon.

As the medic for the Blackbridge Security team, he was just fine hanging out at the office in his spare time.

Jude Morris was…boring.

He didn’t need excitement.

He wasn’t a thrill-seeker.

Then he met a woman who was.

Parker Maxwell, the only woman able to captivate, entice, and beckon him, was his antithesis.

The up to his down.

The light to his dark.

The hot to his cold.

He couldn’t take his eyes off of her.

She didn’t seem to notice him.

It’s going to take heroic measures for this guy to win the girl.

My ARC Review:


Another great addition to Marie’s Blackbridge Security series, in this one we get Jude’s story, the medic in the crew…… quiet, shy, nerdy, until Parker blows into his life!!

We’ve met Parker in a previous book, she is Hayley’s best friend, a beautiful and confident woman, used to being the center of attention, not interested in relationships with men due to the trauma her mother went through, which has caused her commitment issues. She loves a bit of a challenge, a quiet and shy man, who she can bring out of his shell and to his knees. She meets Jude at the firing range and automatically he is pushing all her attraction buttons.

At 31yrs old, Jude is a virgin and a shy and quiet guy, likes keeping to himself, observing from the shadows, is used to be looked over by women for men with stronger personalities. He is instantly attracted to Parker, but knows he is out of his league just by looking at her, and avoids her at all costs. But she unexpectedly corners him and asks him back to her house.

This is a good role reversal read, where its the woman with the experience showing the guy how its done, and she is the one with the commitment issues. These two are polar opposites, but boy their attraction is off the scale!! Jude may well be a virgin but he is a fast learner and can just keep going so it seems!!! Hawt and steamy scenes as they challenge each other to keep going!!

But emotions quickly get involved and Jude falls hard and fast for Parker, but she is having none of it, and keeps trying to keep it a no strings attached meet up with Jude, but she is lying to herself and just can’t face it!!

Things get a bit complicated with some added drama when a stalker gets involved, but still Parker tries to keep her emotions out of it and Jude has had enough of being used and starts to put his foot down.

I loved Jude, a lovely guy with a heart of gold, his innocence is endearing and his prowess astounding!! Plenty of passion with some drama, some social awkwardness and some laugh out loud humour from that dirty bird Puff Daddy!! I’m looking forward to Gaige’s story.







Meet Marie James:


Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
