One single dad.
One set of twins.
And the wall isn’t the only thing being drilled…
I learned the hard way that being a handywoman isn’t easy. The questions, the stares—the assumption I’m the proud owner of a cock and balls. Not that it matters. I’ve proven over and over that I’m ready for anything the judgmental asses throw at me.
Except the hot, single dad of twins who just moved to town.
Brantley Cooper gets the shock of his life when I show up on his doorstep to fix up his kids’ new rooms. His son is confused why ‘the pretty lady has a drill,’ and his daughter has a new obsession—me.
On paper, my job is easy. Go in, do their bedrooms, and leave.
In theory, I’m spending eight hours a day with a guarded, sexy as hell guy, and I’m staying for dinner more often than I’m eating it alone, on my couch, with Friends re-runs.
I shouldn’t be staying for dinner. I shouldn’t be helping him out with the twins. I shouldn’t be falling in love with tiny toes and dimpled cheeks.
And I most definitely should not be kissing my client.
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
From the moment Kali meets Brantley, she is attracted to him. He needs his children's rooms dealt with as soon as possible and of course Kali is the girl for the job. She can see that he has his hands full with his children. The twins can be quite difficult at times, but they are absolutely adorable and I loved them.
As Kali starts to work on the twins' bedrooms, she gets a glimpse into Brantley's world. On a good day, the twins are rambunctious. On a bad day, well let's just say that they made me happy I was childless. But they were adorable and it doesn't take long for Kali to fall in love with them.
And the same goes for Brantley. Kali knows that getting involved with him is a bad idea. He is her client and crossing that line would be wrong. I loved these two. I am a big fan of banter and this book has some A+ banter. Both Kali and Brantley are witty, smart and quick with a comeback and they made me laugh multiple times. They are also a ridiculously hot couple that almost melted my ereader. When they finally broke through all the sexual tension between them....WOW.
As soon as I read the synopsis for this book I knew that I would love it. What's not to like? Female handywoman? Awesome. Single dad? Amazing. Adorable children? I'm sold! Plus, it had been a while since I read one of Emma's books and my schedule finally allowed for me to read one and this seemed like the perfect book for me. And it was!
Deal with it,” I echoed, my mouth dry. “What exactly do you mean by that?”
He glanced at my mouth.
“Okay, but, um, here’s the thing.” I couldn’t breathe. I sounded like a panting idiot trying to get the words out between each short, sharp breath I took. “This,” I motioned between us, “is bad.”
“Bad.” His lips tugged to the side.
“Yes. Because,”—help. Someone help—“because this isn’t allowed. Company rules. No cavorting with clients.”
“No cavorting with clients.” That half-smile turned into a full-blown grin. “That’s very…proper.”
“Well, I can’t exactly put, “No sleeping with the clients” now, can I?”
“You could have, but it would have been unfortunately precise.”
“I should change that.”
I licked my lips. “You should agree. Because this is—”
“Bad. You said.” More lip twitching.
“I thought you were sorry you made it awkward by kissing me.”
“That was before I found out you were attracted to me. Now, I’m a lot less sorry I kissed you.”
Oh. Well. Fair enough.
“Should I take back my acceptance of your apology?” I asked.
“You should stop talking and see how you feel when I’ve kissed you again.”
