MISS FIX IT
BY Emma Hart
Release Day – Oct 31, 2017
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.
Girl power? Oozing with fiery chemistry and just hotness dripping all over it? With irresistible kiddie cuteness? Miss Fix It by Emma Hart is truly bringing in its A-game.
To be honest, Miss Fix It was not even on my radar. Not until I suddenly stumble across it on my Facebook news feed. Its red dominated and wowza book cover got my eyes bulging. But what made me go for it and immediately sign up for the release blitz and blog tour was its synopsis. Just reading the first three lines, “One handywoman. One single dad. One set of twins.”, and I’m an immediate goner over it.
Miss Fix It is the first book written by Emma Hart that I’ve read (I think) and it, hands down, did not disappoint. I might have to check her books after writing this review tour post. Given that Miss Fix It already has everything that I wanted in a book with this particular trope, Emma Hart incorporated her own flavor to it. Especially with Kali’s character, I love.
Just the knowledge of having a handywoman as a main character and then reading how awesome, no non-sense and independent Kali is – was a huge treat for me. She rocks that profession to the core (even teases Brantley of not being able to do this and that handywork) but through the story you’ll see her maternal instincts come out of her. What a way to balance it out, right? Warning: There are a lot of heartwarming scenes with Kali and the twins, Ellie & Eli. Better tighten your hold onto your heart before starting this book. I was awwww-ing and ooooooh-ing during scenes that are way too cute and just too much for my kid-junkie heart.
“Sometimes, it feels like I’m nothing more than Dad. But, with you…When you’re around…You make me feel like I’m me again.”
Another warning: Daddy interactions…so prepare. Single dad with twins, ensue chaos. The things he did and will do for those precious kids knows no boundary. He’s unquestionably a great dad and everyday does his best for them. But it’s fun to see Brantley try to shift from his usual dad self to just a guy being flirty & sexy. He may be rusty on that department but Brantley, I swooned. He’s a genuine soul. Kudos for Brantley being transparent with his feelings and priorities. I admire that he’s real with his fears and that he didn’t put pressure on Kali. Instead he just let her be with her thoughts and decisions – and that made me like his character even more.
While Kali and Brantley are falling in love, Ellie and Eli are stealing my heart. They may be rowdy and fight at times (that’s normal, though) but you couldn’t hide the fact that they are just way too cute for words. Expect the crazy weird twin connection and cute mispronunciation of words from these two.
With that, I was just rooting for everything to work perfectly together while swooning and giggling along the way. I was rooting for Kali, Brantley, Ellie and Eli.
“You don’t get to plan who you fall in love with. I’m sorry, honey, but you don’t. You don’t get to plan who, how, or when it happens. You just have to go with it when it does.”
If you’re up for some Go girl!, swoony single dad and adorable kids, then I highly suggest that you pick Miss Fix It by Emma Hart. It’s a light read that you’ll surely breeze through and easily fall in love with.
