    "Very good listen"

    Sandra Kyle is an author whom is new to me, while I have listened to the narrator (Kelley Hazen) before and enjoy her style. I thought this second chance at love was well written and the performance was so good. I really enjoyed the humor in this story and how it was delivered. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I found this book to be sweet, and loved the fact that main characters learned to trust each other and deal with their issues. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    Story
    "A Building Passion"

    After a heartbreaking betrayal by her ex, Vanessa decides to move to Savannah, Georgia and start over again. She and her father share a love of home renovation, and when she finds a dilapidated duplex for sale she decides it's where she's meant to be. At the local hardware store she meets Daniel, a talented carpenter, and they share an instant attraction. Vanessa needs help with her renovations, and Daniel needs help with his bookkeeping, and it should be a match made in heaven. But Vanessa's ex isn't willing to let her go that easily.

    This book is the first in a series but doesn't end on a cliffhanger. The sweltering city of Savannah was the perfect location for this steamy read! Vanessa and Daniel were interesting and well drawn characters, and just when I thought I had them all figured out another layer was revealed. Their conversations were so flirty and fun, and their attraction was built on more than just physical. The secondary characters were great, especially Vanessa's dad, and added even more dimension.

    Kelley Hazen performed the speaking voices well, she gave each character a distinct recognizable voice. She narrated dramatically and with deliberation. I was provided a copy of the audiobook and I'm voluntarily leaving a review. I really enjoyed this book, and I will be keeping an eye out for the sequel!

    "A Great Listen"

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it very entertaining even though I don't usually listen to contemporary romance. The main characters are well written and the story moves along well with a bit of humour and suspense. I found myself chuckling as I drove down the road. It's well worth a listen.

    "REALLY FUN ROMANCE - SWEET AND SPICY!"

    I really liked this book. I think the writer really captured what it feels like to be attracted to somebody - like blown away by it so much that it kind of scares you. And you love when the super cool guy falls for the real down to earth girl. Vanessa is real and strong and she knows building and how to take care of herself. Or at least she's trying. - being strong, standing on her own two feet after pain comes to her. Daniel is like everybody's dream guy. I thought I knew what he had done wrong and it was a real surprise when I found out the truth. ***SPOILER ALERT sort of: I can't wait to hear about Daniel's DIY show!*** hope that's in number 2. The best friend Monica is hilarious. Also the adult scenes are pretty explicit. Real hot though.

    "cute, sexy, delightful, fresh"

    I was attracted to the DIY aspect and it didn't disappoint. It's a great romance - Daniel and Vanessa tease and spark with each other. They are real cute together and the way they get closer than push away. They have real challenges. Me and my friends talk about in terms of hooking up and knowing if trying to be together is worth it. The carpentry aspect makes a great situation for the story to take place, and sexy too. I loved getting to know Savannah. I don't think I've listened to a book that was set there before. And the other characters are awesome - brother, best friend, ex. It's great listen, it kept me wanting to hear more - I stayed with it almost straight through without stopping. Narrator's great. Looking forward to the next one! This is a fun audiobook. It's makes you feel good.
