His Handyman is the first book I’ve read by Lexie Davis and it won’t be the last! Falling just under sixty pages, His Handyman was a fun filled and enjoyable read from start to finish. With its sexy heroes and fast paced storyline the book read really quick and easy for me and it was a perfect ending to my hectic day.
Austin Beckham needed a project to get his mind off his bad breakup. As a high school calculus teacher, he has the summer off and way too much time to sit around and think. The problem is…now Austin knows he’s bitten off more than he can chew with this project. He soon realizes that even though he smart, he knows nothing about carpentry.
Now he has a yard full of lumber and supplies and no idea what to do with it. Hopefully, another trip to the hardware store will give him the motivation and information he needs to get started.
Roman McBride has to start over from scratch. When he dad caught him in a compromising position with another man on the job site, he was immediately fired from the thriving family construction company. Now, he’s working at a hardware store and wondering how he has sunk so low. But, Roman tries to take things in stride and keep a positive attitude with his customers and decides to make an effort to change his life for the better.
Roman has had a love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude in the past. But, once he meets the very smart and interesting Austin Beckham at the hardware store he starts to wonder what it would be like to have such an amazing man to come home to every day. Even with the differences between Austin and Roman, they quickly find that the attraction between them won’t be denied. Soon they find out that they have more in common than what they thought and an emotional bond starts to form between them. Will they both be able to work through their own fears and insecurities and take a chance of having a once in a lifetime love that they could have between them?
I really liked this book a lot. Not only was the story paced well; I also thought all of the characters were interesting as well. My only gripe is that I wish the book had been a little longer. I would have liked for Roman and Austin to have had more quality time together. Although, I really felt the attraction and connection between them, I felt the ending was a tad bit rushed. I would have liked to have seen their relationship carried out more because I really liked both of the heroes and it would’ve been great to see how they mesh together during their everyday lives.
If you are looking for a great way to end a stressful day, His Handyman is a perfect read to end the day on a happy and positive note. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more my Ms. Davis in the near future.
When Austin Beckham’s sister suggests that he build his dream deck in an effort to nurse his broken heart, he jumps on it. Keeping his mind and his hands occupied was a good idea. Avoiding his ex lover’s flamboyant displays of affection toward his new lover was an even better idea. However, Austin knew nothing about carpentry. Determined to gain information from the hardware store, he meets Roman, a sexy cashier that threatens to heat up Austin’s already sweltering hot summer with just one look.
Roman has worked in construction nearly his entire life and wanted a change after his father caught him with another man in a construction trailer on a job site. Taking a lower-paying job at the local hardware store, he meets unskilled do-it-yourselfers all the time but Austin was different.
What started out as a simple question from Austin turns into something more when Roman arrives at Austin’s house for a door instillation. Sexual tension crackles between the two men as they fight the temptation to give in to their desires. Playboy Roman is good with his hands but how will he handle matters of the heart?
