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.
OMG, this book is amazeballs! Miss Fix-It just jumped to my top 5 books of this year, because it’s fun, funny, heartfelt, and so goddamn cute!
Emma Hart has been kind of a hit and miss for me, so I’m very very happy that this one was a huge hit.
The writing was great, and even though I usually like it best when the books have dual POV, I felt like I wasn’t missing anything at all only having Kali’s point of view. Also, I loved Kali’s voice, this girl was just so amazing. Kali is fun and carefree, and confident. She knows she’s good and she shows it. She’s very herself in all situations, and she’s unapologetic about it, even in tricky situations. I loved her. She’s definitly a character I would like to see more of.
And then we have Brantley, and I loved his dry sense of humour, and how he dealt with his kids. He was such an great single dad. He’s funny and determined. Him and Kali just clicked, their personalities fit perfectly and the chemistry was very much there. I thought the romance was so well done, it took a little time, it developed from a friendship and mutual respect and admiration. Very very well done.
Eli and Ellie were scene stealers, and OMG, they’re just the cutest 4yo twins that I ever read about. ADORABLE!!! Every time they were on page, it was adorable, and they are in the book a lot, they have such big roles, and that’s great, because sometimes on books that involve kids, the kids themselves are put a bit on the background. But not on this one, Miss Fix-It puts Eli and Ellie front and center.
The only thing I would have liked was to know the depth of the reasons that lead Brantley to uproot his life. We get an inkling of it, but I wanted one full conversation about the subject, that’s all.
This book was the best. And so cute and adorable. So, guys, go read it… NOW. You won’t regret it, I swear. GO READ IT!
“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.”
