He has all the right tools…and the skill to use them.
Need a carpenter who has all the right tools and the skill to use them? Look no further than me, Jackson Decker…otherwise known as Big Deck. I’ll let you guess how I may have inherited that nickname. Spoiler alert: it’s not just because I’m 6’5″.
I take care of my female clients in many ways. I’ve got tools, and I’ve got rules: three seconds, tops, for hugs. No going on dates. No staying overnight. And absolutely no letting anyone mess with my heart.
I’m yours for the duration of the project. And then, it’s over. Most women find it difficult to say goodbye, and sometimes it’s hard for me, too—literally. See what I just did there? But that’s the way it has to be, and I’ve always been able to handle it.
Until Madeline Callaway.
I was only looking to get a big bathroom, not a big man, since I’ve sworn off relationships after being cheated on. But when Jack Decker showed up at my door with his jaw-dropping sex appeal and huge…um, workboots, I found myself wanting his hands on more than just my bathroom fixtures. I wasn’t prepared for how he’d make me laugh, blush, swoon…ache.
Will I be able to follow our agreement of insanely hot, no-strings sex, keep my emotions in check and let Jack go once he’s done the renovation? Or will I need him to return and repair the hole in my heart?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book begins with a whole lotta WTH?!? Jack is a commitment-phobic man whore, who also happens to be in the remodeling business. From the very beginning, I wasn’t sure what was most important to him, his bed hopping or his business. He was cocky, with a huge ego, and his trust issues could fill a football stadium. I really, really didn’t like him. AT ALL! He just rubbed me the wrong way. Madeline, on the other hand, seemed to be a sweet girl next door type. I was afraid that she was going to get taken advantage of and then left in the dust before she could get her HEA. They just seemed so different, and I wasn’t sure how they could possible be good together.
From that first meeting, Madeline just couldn’t keep her eyes to herself. There was an instant connection, and sparks flew from there. I started feeling a little better about how things were moving between them. Their intense attraction was amazing, and the alternating POVs that the story is told from was absolutely hilarious.
This book was interesting, and very reminiscent of the Big Rock series by Lauren Blakely (not as in a “hey you copied that book” way, but the writing style is similar, and they characters are similar). If you enjoyed those (and I did!) this book is probably right up your alley.
