Publisher's Summary

Whether it's repairing a home or taking care of clients' other needs, Twin Cities handyman Sam Haney is in demand from his mostly female clientele. Despite Sam's lothario reputation, love isn't part of his portfolio. He's built a lot of walls in his time, but the one that's surrounded his heart ever since the death of his parents is his most solid yet.

Haley Cooper has had enough heartache for a lifetime. Her high school sweetheart up and moved to Indonesia - alone - just two weeks before their wedding. Her mother thinks it's time for Haley to move on and contracts Sam to work on Haley's wreck of a house - and anything else, if he's got the notion.

Sparks fly and passion ignites. But Haley isn't into Sam's love-'em-and-leave-'em act. She wants something more. Fixing a house is one thing, but for this handyman, building a relationship will need a whole different set of skills.

Great feel good read

I really enjoyed this one right up to end. No dull moments and the audio book was amazing. The narrator did a great of bringing each character to life. This is my first read by this author, won't be my last.

Slow

What did you love best about What You Do to Me?

The story was slow to start but warmed up and ended up being a decent story.

What did you like best about this story?

SLOW and bouncy.

Have you listened to any of Teri Clark Linden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It irritated me as the man ran away and came back and ran away and came back.

Any additional comments?

Overall this was a good story. The narrator really didn't make me FEEL the story. The author wrote some intimate moments but I didn't FEEL them.

That Handyman

I liked this book and had a lot of fun with it. I really didn't know a whole lot about the book but when I saw that it was offered through Prime Reading at Amazon, I decided to give it a try. It was a really quick listen for me and I was able to get through the whole book in just a couple of days. It wasn't perfect but it had some really great moments that made the overall experience quite enjoyable.

One thing that I had to get past with this book was the initial set up. Sam becomes well known as the handyman offering a few more personal services. I was quite amused by how things started until Haley's mother got involved. Haley's mother sends Sam to work on Haley's house and requests his personal touch. What mother does that? Every mother I know would do everything in their power to prevent such a thing from happening. It just felt odd to me but I went with it and just had fun watch Sam and Haley.

I really liked Sam and Haley together. They both had some pretty big issues to work through and I thought that they were really good for each other. I love how Haley confides in Sam and takes his advice. Sam really had a hard time opening up to other but he was very drawn to Haley. I wish that Sam could have worked through some of his issues a little quicker and saved both of them some heartache but everything worked out in the end.

I think that this is the second time that I have listened to Teri Clark Linden and I thought she did a good job with the book. Her voice was very pleasant to listen to for hours at a time and she was able to bring a lot of emotion to the story. I thought that the character voices that she used were all very well done. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to more of her work in the future.

I would recommend this book to others. It was a fun romance that had the happily ever after that I wanted to see. This was the first book by Barbara Longley that I have had the chance to read but I look forward to more in the future.

Made Me Smile and Laugh.

It took me a while to get used to the narrator but it was a good book. It made me laugh right along side the characters.

Boring and cliche

Very slow and boring and very cliche archetypes. Not impressed and definitely won't be reading the next one.

Vanilla

The story is sweet... but it’s very predictable and without much passion. It was e retraining, but I was a bit bored.

Loved this one!

If you could sum up What You Do to Me in three words, what would they be?

Emotional, Slow Burn

What was one of the most memorable moments of What You Do to Me?

When Sam realizes he needs Hayley in his life.

Have you listened to any of Teri Clark Linden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first book by Teri Clark Linden

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Floatation devices

Any additional comments?

I really loved this book. It gave me all of the feels. The only thing I would have changed is having a male narrator for Sam's POV. I think that would have enriched the story.
