Her Reputation They Re Renovating Trinity House reputation They re renovating Trinity House shelter for single mothers and their children and a place that had been her and her mother s salvation when she was a little Reine Mädchensache girl It matters to her that she honour it and what it will become for others who need to escape difficult situationsFynn is a distraction though Arumpy Animal Babies gorgeous distraction The two hosts animosity and attraction plays out on screen as noted in the director s intriguingly personal production notes Things turn around rather uickly a necessity in such a short book especially one with a compelling secondary plot But I kind of wished the acrimony had played out just a bit longer It would have made the turnaround that much sweeter Still it really made sense in the context of the story so this is a petty complaint I m justreedyAs always with d Abo the sex is seriously hot and seriously fun And as always there s a lot oing on than just romance including some rank villainy from a villain who s not a woma. En all she can think of is her studly cohost contractor Fynn Babineau These two may clash over blueprints and budgets on screen but with the lust palpable between them rumor has it 35 starsI m so conflicted about rating and reviewing this book If I had to ive the overall story and the main character Sophia a rating I would qasas-ul-quran give both of them a 4 star rating Like many I am a big fan of the home improvement shows on HGTV so I loved that Sophia was a young designer who s recently received her big break in television I also really fell for Sophia s back story While she s an up and coming fancy interior designer now when she was a child she and her mother were forced to live in a homeless shelter after her alcoholic father kicked them out The project that she s working on for the TV show is the shelter where sherew up which has now fallen into disrepair All of that was really strongThen there were some not so reat things The douche bag producer of the show Carl bothered me because he seemed like such a terrible human being but also because he was just so cheesy And there are also these production notes from the director at the beginning of each chapter It wasn t uninteresting to hear what was oing on from the
director s POV but they felt unnecessary and I wasn t a fan of the weird foreshadowing which I figured out s POV but they felt unnecessary and I wasn t a fan of the weird foreshadowing which I figured out early on that was included in the notesBut the weakest part of the story was the romance and that s kind of what this is supposed to be I mean it s a red hot read The concept of the designer and the carpenter on a home improvement show Dead-End Road Mysteries getting together isreat but the execution just wasn t there Sophia and the carpenter Fynn that spelling have a lovehate relationship Hear the Wolves going on which leads to some steamy scenes but I never understood the attraction There were surprisingly few scenes with Sophie and Fynn together and when they are together there s sexual tension but I didn tet any connection beyond that Which would be ok if it was a book with the Valors Measure girl anduy casually hooking up but that wasn t what was BFI Film Classics going on here Plus Nailed probably has the fewest sex scenes of any of the Red Hot Reads I ve readBottom Line I enjoyed the set up for the story and liked the main character immensely but the romance and sex scenes fell flat for me I d like toive this a higher rating but when it comes down to it this is a book that should be focused on romance and sex and that s where it was lackingI received an electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley thank you All opinions are my own For this review and visit my blogThis review is really difficult for me to write because I am finding it really hard to think of anything substantial to say about Nailed I actually really enjoyed this book I found it sweet sexy and humorous I liked the story writing and characters but beyond that there is not much for me to say about itI think the reason for that is because Christine D abo has managed to tick all the boxes in order to make this an enjoyable novella Nothing upset or annoyed me I found it engaging and entertaining But at the same time I didn t fall so head over heels in love with it that I feel the need to shout about it to anyone who will listenThere are some reat characters and a nice romance to be found here Sophia is smart and sassy with an entertaining inner voice that often made me laugh Fynn is a real sweetheart that doesn t have a bad bone in his body The chemistry between them was awesome but the romance was an easy one There was no drama no will they won t they It was plain sailing for the both of them The conflict came from other aspects of the story instead of the romance which made a nice changeNailed is a short sweet and steamy romance that I really enjoyed The publisher provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Warning This show contains scenes of sexual tension Hosting a new TV show is a fantasy turned reality for diva decorator Sophia Holbrook But concentrating on color swatches is hard when all she can think of is her studly cohost contractor Fynn Babineau These two may clash over blueprints and budgets on screen but with the lust palpable between them rumor has it they have been putting than just their heads together behind the scenes What secrets will the cameras expose Tune in tonight.

really enjoyed the ame of cat and mouse that Sophia and Fynn seemed to play for a majority of this enjoyed the ame of cat and mouse that Sophia and Fynn seemed to play for a majority of this There was something between them yet they both seemed to not be sure where they stood with the other and even after some pretty passionate alone time their baggage kept them from truly being together However it was so obvious these two not only wanted each other but they needed each other I found it very interesting they way they both became very protective of one another very early on yet refused to own up to their feelings for one anotherThere are some twists and turns in this book but overall the relationship between Sophia and Fynn was front and center with them turning to one another rather than struggling against one another I liked the maturity of their relationship they were careful to see things from all sides and they actually communicated which is often so rare in many romance books Their fun banter was part of the reason I loved this book so muchNailed is for anyone who can appreciate two mature people who despite their past disappointments are able to see that loving someone doesn t have to hurt That letting Marvins Room go of the past and embracing the here and now is beautiful and that no matter what having someone there by your side can make all the difference in your life This may be a novella but it packs a punch and author Christine D Abo really Nailed this one I have received an ARC via NetGalley For a short story this is a very nice and easy readYes I would have preferred if the characters and the plot had been fleshed out a bit romance dram I cannotet enough of Christine D Abo s ridiculously delicious writing There was so much to love about this novella and those things don t only revolve around the hot as heck sex scenes that Christine tends to write There were some things that were pretty predictable but that didn t matter in the least I absolutely loved the premise especially since lately I ve been a huge HGTV junkie I loved the idea of the designer and the contractor Roberto to the Dark Tower Came getting together while filming a makeover show I appreciated the tension between Fynn and Sophia especially when they really startedetting hot and heavyI haven t read a story by Christine that I didn t like She knows how to keep you engaged in the story and care about the characters even when they aren t ripping each other s clothes off And then when that startsoooooh dang Christine definitely knows how to ratchet up the heat I cannot wait to read by her and I would love to revisit this world Perhaps Sophia s friend needs to find love and while we re at it we can et a little SophiaFynn action on the sideArc provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.
