Some couples just click. Others require a hard hat and a stud finder.

Tulle and Tulips, Book 3

Monday mornings have a reputation for sucking, and today is no different for Burton Anderson. One year ago, his “perfect” life full of prestige, money, success and travel crumbled in the glaring light of betrayal.

This morning? This close to making his new construction business a success, a date gone awry has left him handcuffed to a toilet in a housewares store. Naked. And the first customer of the day is coming down his aisle.

Planning and shopping for other couples’ Big Day is about as wild and crazy as buttoned-up Leigh Schyuler gets. Until she gets an eyeful of Hearth and Home’s daily special. He’s definitely a “designer” temptation while she’s “off the rack”.

But there are risks, and then there are risks. Burton isn’t sure he can once again trust his heart to a woman who holds the power to ruin him. And Leigh discovers too late that indulging in a little no-strings sex is tying her dream of Devoted Love into hopeless knots…

Warning: Contains a hard-hatted, hard-bodied hero who’s good with his hands, and a woman who’d like him to build a bridge over her sexual boundaries. Nuts and bolts never had it so good.

My Thoughts on

 

Read for Review (Author)
Overall Rating: 4.25
Story Rating: 4.00
Character Rating: 4.50

First Thought when Finished: LOVED the ending! So gosh darn naughty sweet–it was perfect for them!

Story Thoughts: First: I have to admit that this is the first one in this series that I have read. Second: After reading this one, I just know that I will like the first two so I am going to get them pronto. Handcuffed in Housewares was fun, emotional, romantic, and smexy. The story was strong! The romance was lovely. The smexy was SMEXY!

Character Thoughts: Blue collar men are my favorite kind of romantic leads. Burton fit my swoon-worthy scale to a tee: hard-working, flawed, and guarded. I need my men to work through something or they are just to perfect. Leigh was great for Burton. She had her own issues to work through but was true to herself. Plus, I think she represented the everyday gal well and that doesn’t happen very often. What I LOVED was that they figured out how to make things work for them as a couple without it being all about one or the other.

Final Thoughts: This was just a great afternoon in the pool kind of read for me.
