Summary

Bolivar Randy Heart (a.k.a. Brady) knows exactly what he wants next in life: the perfect wife. Raised in a strict traditional family household, he seeks a woman who is sweet, conservative, and eager to settle down. With his well-known protective and dominant streak, he needs a woman to offer him balance in a world where he relishes control.

Too bad the newly hired, gorgeous, rehab addict is blasting through all his preconceptions and wrecking his ideals...one nail at a time....

Charlotte Grayson knows who she is and refuses to apologize. Growing up poor made her appreciate the simple things in life, and her new job at Pierce Brothers Construction is perfect to help her carve out a career in renovating houses. When an opportunity to transform a dilapidated house in a dangerous neighborhood pops up, she goes in full throttle. Unfortunately, she's forced to work with the firm's sexy architect who's driving her crazy with his archaic views on women. Too bad he's beginning to tempt her to take a chance on more than just work...one stroke at a time....

Somehow, some way, they need to work together to renovate a house without killing each other...or surrendering to the white-hot chemistry knocking at the front door.

Cute novella and a subject matter I adore

I liked the story and the characters but was VERY distracted by the “acting” of Lance Greenfield. His clipped, curt, angry manner of speaking in this role was not at all sexy and reminded me of the intense way Christian Bale acts for Batman.

Other than that, I enjoyed this and look forward to the 4th book.

Waaayyyy too dramatic

The story is okay. It's very male dominant. Brady is full of machismo and is a full on stereotype of a hispanic male. Rather insulting, in fact. It's all about him trying to control her because he thinks that's what a man should do to a woman. Him possessing her.

But the narrators. Ugh. Madeleine Maby was TERRIBLE when she did Brady's voice, It was too slow and robotic. Nothing sexy about it.

Lance Greenfield reads his part with so much drama that it made me start skipping through the parts that were supposed to be erotic and serious. My eyes hurt from rolling so much.

Female to Male Voice

I loved the overall performance but had a hard time listening to female performance of Brady. Her rendition of him was so slow and robotic.

Narration not great

The female narrator was great but the guy was not good — those parts were hard to listen to.

Hilarious

I really enjoyed this book. I love books that have lots of humor and this one did. The narrators brought life to the characters; thus far this book is my favorite from the series.
