This romantic novella has adult language, sexual content, and is told from the male perspective. Master carpenter Ashe Whitaker is excited to work on the historic bed and breakfast, The Appleton House, but the owner’s daughter proves to be a distraction. Finding out that fun-loving Perry is engaged is only a minor set-back. He’s been an idiot fiancé before and knows just what seeds of doubt to plant in order to get her into his bed. Ashe knows Perry wants him and exposes her sinfully shameless side. But Ashe’s forever-a-bachelor reputation is in jeopardy when Perry threatens to nail down his heart instead of being just another notch in his tool belt.

***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language and Adult Situations. Not for young readers***

***Amber, #NerdGirlAmbz’s Review***

I have to say that this was a compelling story. I was a little leery because the book is written from the male perspective and the author is female. I am happy to report that she (the author) NAILED it! Reading this story from the male perspective was very intriguing. This story line was right on the money. Very interesting, loveable, and funny characters. The plot itself was so imaginative and captivating. She brings a woman’s and mans fantasies to live and meshes them beautifully with reality. Not at all a raunchy type of book. The sexy scenes were done with elegance. Ashe is a sexy, hardworking, muscle bound man. Add in Miss Appleton and you have your typical “good girl” who needs to sow some wild oats that she didn’t even know she had! And come on let’s be honest here… What girl doesn’t have some wild oats that need to be tended to??  The only down fall I have with this book is I would like more. More dramatic twists toward the end of the book. I enjoyed the story and truly believe you would too!
