One handywoman.
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.

MISS FIX-IT is a brand-new, standalone romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, who brought you BEING BROOKE and CATCHING CARLY.


Miss Fix-It interested me; because of the female handyman/builder aspect. This field is one dominated by men and so to read/see a women in that role was extraordinary. 

Kali loves what she does and you see that love in her knowledge and how she interacts with her clients. I loved her relationship with her step-mom. It was cool to see them get along and have a strong bond. I also liked how real Kali’s thought processes is. It’s refreshing to read about the things she thinks; because as a women I’ve thought some of those things. I also liked her straightforwardness. 

The dating site messages Kali and her friend get, well I laughed. Just to funny!

I found the twins adorable and their dad hot. The kids helped add a nice foundation for the relationship; between Brantley and Kali. 

The small town aspect was hilarious. The gossip, the people in the restaurants, the idea that you had no privacy and your mom is going to find out everything, even before you tell. 

Emma Hart, made the whole story feel realistic. Not fabricated or over the top. Everything flowed nicely and developed at the right paces. 

All and all I had a delightful time with Miss Fix-It and plan on picking up another title by Emma Hart.

    • That’s good you like her books. I saw this book a while back and what drew me to it was a women working in a man type field. I liked that. Miss Fix-It was enjoyable. Thank’s for visiting.

    • Glad you enjoyed my review on Miss Fix-It. I really liked Kali and her job, one that women typically wouldn’t be in. I liked that aspect of the story. Hart has another one with a women mechanic that I’ve got my eye on and want to try.
