Publisher's Summary

A down-to-earth carpenter. A Prada loving personal shopper. A Habitat for Humanity project that erects more than walls . . . 

The word "nail" has so many meanings: Ainsley's manicured nails belong in the Museum of Modern Art; the fashionista hammers nails at Habitat for Humanity. She desperately wants to nail Owen Phillips. Unfortunately, she mistakenly thinks he's gay. 

Owen's never-ending divorce has taken a turn from messy to downright vindictive. Yearning for the simpler things in life, like working with his hands, he joins a Habitat build. Turns out he also wants to work over Ainsley Hall . . . but the confusing bombshell flirts blatantly with other men. 

When Ainsley discovers Owen's true sexuality, their mutual attraction ignites, but he hasn't shared the extent of his divorce drama. If he can't disprove his ex's false allegations, it will take more than hammers and nails (and nailing studs) to keep their walls from caving in. Contains mature themes.

You can "nail" me anytime!

I enjoyed Ainsley and Owen's story, however I feel like it could have been a little shorter and less internal dialog with both characters. I would have liked to see more of their relationship together vs 80% of the book being the drama and back and forth. I wanted to feel more of the love. Great narrators! Still worth the credit in my book if not just for Owen! ;-)

Making that wish come true!

Consistently funny and oh so sexy, Kelly Siskind has the second of the One Wild Wish series, Stud. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to have heroes who are not your typical billionaire, but a real life, hard working man and woman finding their stride together. We met Ainsley in Legs as one of the 3 women that share a birthday. She too made a life changing wish when she turned 27. As Ainsley is trying to get her life in order, she ends up at Habitat for Humanity, volunteering her time to help build houses for the less fortunate. She is unhappy at her job, has major trust issues with men and is always attracted to gay men. In walks Owen, who also is giving of his time. Owen is going through a messy divorce. When he meets Ainsley, he realizes his whole world is about to change and you can feel their chemistry instantly. I love how Siskind integrates not only the love story, but the importance of helping others. Watching the houses go up as the story progresses is a wonderful testament to those that do take the time to help out. I also love Owen's love of all things older movies and dancing. We also have our good friends, Rachel and Gwen stop in and give sage advice to Ainsley keeping her on the path to having her wish come true, as well as the introduction of Emmett(Owen's brother) and Cameron. And who can't resist a good soccer game? So many good things wrapped up into one sweet, funny, hot, romantic story sure to keep you smiling.

Narration by Aaron Shedlock and Samantha Cook is just amazing. Shedlock brings that voice of blue collar sexiness and warmth with Owen, as well as showing his frustration and vulnerability. As Ainsley, Cook is perfection giving her an edgy yet emotional feel as she works through her past and finds her path to making her wish come true.
