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.
“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.”
All fabulous fun from beginning to end! Emma Hart never fails to entertain her readers and her particular style and humour is a crack up!
Kali is a builder in a small town and I accepts a job for a new resident, renovating his twins bedrooms. Brantley is a hunk with four-year-old twins, Eli and Ellie. This is the story of Kali and Brant (Eli and Ellie) becoming friends as well as Kali’s self-discovery.
Some great expressions which show the characters or author’s fun side…
“…sometimes have a habit of putting my foot in my mouth and chewing on my toes.”
“They both turned, grinning at me with half-orange faces. It was like Willy Wonka had let his Oompaloompas free in Rock Bay.”
The self-honesty of the characters is refreshing and helps with the humour.
All of the characters are very easy to get to know and like through the clear descriptions used as well as the first person thoughts of Kali. The twins really are adorable rascals and will melt your heart.
This is a fast-paced story and super easy to read, be warned though you might get addicted to this author and find yourself one clicking like mad! 😉
