What to Do with a Bad Boy by Marie Harte

Author: Marie Harte
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Date of publication: November 2014

Mike McCauley had his soul mate for a precious time before she died giving birth to their son. She left him with the best boy a guy could want, so why is everyone playing matchmaker? He's sick of it . . . until he meets Delilah Webster. 

For some reason, the foul-mouthed, tattooed mechanic sets his motor running. He sees the loving woman buried within. But the closer they get, the more the pain of past wounds throws a monkey wrench into a future he's not sure he can handle...

What to Do with a Bad Boy is the fourth and final book in the McCauley Brothers series.  I have to say that this is by far my favorite of the four books.  Mike has been a widower for six years.  Still grieving for his dead wife, he isn't prepared for the feelings that stir up in him when he is around Del. 

I loved Mike and Del.  Their relationship was explosive, but so much fun to watch.  Del is pretty tough on the outside, but inside she is really soft and longing for love.  I have been rooting for this couple since Del first showed up earlier in the series.  I loved how she was with Colin, Mike's 6YO son.  I thought the author did a really good job of making the reader feel Mike's grief and struggle to move past his wife's death.  That break down scene really  had me choking up and that rarely happens.   I loved their HEA in the bar.

One of the things that really made this book was having part of the story told from Colin's point of view.  He was really central to the story and having his thoughts just added depth to the relationship between Mike and Del. This book wraps up the quartet nicely.  I highly recommend this one as well as the series as a whole.
