Every time Delilah Webster runs into Mike McCauley, he practically bites her head off. The rough-and-tumble contractor clearly has baggage. Del has her own emotional scars and knows she's better off keeping her distance, but Mike's temptation in jeans and a T-shirt and she's always been good with her hands. . .
There's something about the strong-willed mechanic that sets Mike's motor running-and scares the hell out of him. Mike has loved and lost and will never hurt like that again, even if that means walking away from a woman who makes him feel alive for the first time in years.
When a simple kiss turns hot and heavy, Mike discovers he can't stay away, no matter how certain he is they're destined to crash and burn. . .
Welcome to the rough-and-tumble McCauley family, a tight-knit band of four bachelor brothers who work hard, drink beer, and relentlessly tease each other. When three independent women move in next door, all hell breaks loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.25 stars-intimate and intense 4.25 stars-WHAT TO DO WITH A BAD BOY is the fourth installment in Marie Harte’s adult, contemporary McCauley Brothers erotic romance series focusing on the McCauley family. This is eldest brother and widower Mike McCauley, and tattooed and pierced mechanic Delilah (Del) Webster’s storyline, one that has been building for a couple of books. Told from two distinct close third person points of view including Mike’s son Colin, the storyline picks up immediately following the events of books three. WHAT TO DO WITH A BAD BOY can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading in order for your enjoyment. The premise follows the building relationship between Del and Mike. Del first appeared on the scene (in a previous book) when she fixed a flat tire for Mike’s future sister in law. Mike’s six year old son Colin fell instantly in love with the less than feminine female mechanic and sets a path into motion hoping his father will fall in love and give him a new mom. The relationship between Mike and Del is fraught with reluctance, aggression and animal attraction. Mike is a man who likes things a little rough with sex and Del is the woman who is willing to give him everything he wants. Since the death of his first wife Lea, giving birth to their son, Mike swears he will never remarry but friends with benefits is a definitely on the agenda. Lea was his soul mate and there is only ONE soul mate for every man. Del’s unhappy childhood has hardened her heart-believing love is impossible-and Mike is a man who could easily destroy her heart. With that in mind, Del and Mike agree to keep things simple but the heart will begin to fall before the mind has had a chance to catch up. There are moments of heartbreak and sorrow as well as humor and fun. The sex scenes are energetic, erotic and intense. The world building continues to focus on the McCauley family and friends, the family owned business and Abby’s romance novel publications. The secondary characters include all of the previous storyline couples including Mike’s parents and Del’s father and brother who give the storyline and series cohesion and a familiarity. Mike’s mother Beth is less than welcoming of Mike’s friendship with Del and in this there are some tense and interesting moments as Beth continues to set up her son with available single women knowing that Mike has eyes for someone else. Six years grieving the only woman he believes he will ever love finds Mike an unwilling victim of his family’s attempts at matchmaking. But everyone sees that Mike and Del are perfect for one another, if only the couple in question could see the same thing. Marie Harte pulls the reader into a story of love and loss, moving forward and letting go, family and friends. The McCauley Boys series focuses on four brothers, bonded by love and blood, who find love with the one person who understands that extended family is part of the deal. The stories are intimate, intense, addicting and provocative. Marie Harte takes aim at your heart and hits a bulls-eye every time.
