They’ve been hired to remodel a mansion. Will they end up getting a room?
Marisa Sanchez has grand designs for her future. After taking over her grandfather’s construction firm, the successful vlogger and civil engineer is about to take the next step with a new show on the Home Design Network. But she’s not pleased to find out she can only have the lucrative gig if she agrees to work with a handsome rival.
Levi Chance takes the responsibility of providing for his brothers seriously. So when his biggest client asks him to come into the spotlight to co-host a new program, he reluctantly accepts. But he fears the pretty, camera-loving partner he’s been assigned might bring his top-notch reputation tumbling down if she can’t deliver the goods.
Discovering her teammate is quite capable, Marisa battles her attraction to him as she ambitiously turns the project upside down. And the more Levi works with the smart Latina, the more he worries he’s about to push the “no sex” morality clause in their contract into forbidden territory.
Will Marisa and Levi’s fixer-upper turn into a happily together forever?
Renovated is the charming first book in the moving Chance Brothers contemporary romance series. If you like sparkling attractions, comedic moments, and steamy action, then you’ll love Nikki Kiley’s well-built romp.
(I received this book free in exchange for my honest review)
Oh, my sweet little heart. This book was that perfect rainy day read that swept all the dampness away. When I say I had this book read in one sitting, I'm not lying. I got a cramp in my leg, and my cat, who was using me as a heater, got mad at me for having to get up and move around.
I can see this book as cozy rom-com/enemies to lovers.; think of, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and The Proposal mixed, movie. There was fluff, adult angst, misplaced anger, the thing line between attraction and loathing, all the feels!! Hot brothers, a hot female solid lead with just the right amount of cheese, to pull you into this romantic read and keep you there for hours. This book is, chefs kiss!
I loved this book, and it was a good palate cleanser for me, as I have been deep into the fantasy/ PRN genres lately. Sometimes you need a good solid romance to stoke the reading fires again.
To end, please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that you will fall headfirst into this gem of a read.
She loves the beach, her Nespresso maker, and cupcakes (S’more in particular).
