35 starsI m so conflicted bout rating nd reviewing this book If I had to give the overall story nd the main character Sophia rating I would give both of them 4 star rating Like many I m big fan of the home improvement shows on HGTV so I loved that Sophia was young designer who s recently received her big break in television I lso really fell for Sophia s back story While she s n up nd coming fancy interior designer now when she was child she nd her mother were forced to live in homeless shelter fter her lcoholic father kicked them out The project that she s working on for the TV show is the shelter where she grew up which has now fallen into disrepair All of that was really strongThen there were some not so great things The douche bag producer of the show Carl bothered me because he seemed like such terrible human being but Murder Go Round also because he was just so cheesy And therere How Foreign Policy Decisions Are Made In The Third World: A Comparative Analysis also these production notes from the directort the beginning of each chapter It wasn t uninteresting to hear what was going on from the director s POV but they felt unnecessary Alcohol Fuels: Policies, Production, And Potential and I wasn t fan of the weird foreshadowing which I figured out pretty early on that was included in the notesBut the weakest part of the story was the romance nd that s kind of what this is supposed to be I mean it s red hot read The concept of the designer Cambridge Modern History volumes 1-5 and the carpenter on home improvement show getting together is great but the execution just wasn t there Sophia The Heart Of The Hawk (Book 1) and the carpenter Fynn that spelling have lovehate relationship going on which leads to some steamy scenes but I never understood the Spices, Saints, and Saracens: The Egyptian Wanderings of a Dominican Friar, 1483 attraction There were surprisingly few scenes with Sophiend Fynn together nd when they re together there s sexual tension but I didn t get Empire of the Waves: Voyage of the Moon Child any connection beyond that Which would be ok if it was book with the girl The Object of Performance: The American Avant-Garde since 1970 and guy casually hooking up but that wasn t what was going on here Plus Nailed probably has the fewest sex scenes ofny of the Red Hot Reads I ve readBottom Line I enjoyed the set up for the story Of Mice and Men and liked the main character immensely but the romancend sex scenes fell flat for me I d like to give this higher rating but when it comes down to it this is book that should be focused on romance nd sex nd that s where it was lackingI received n electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley thank you All opinions re my own For this review nd visit my blogThis review is really difficult for me to write because I m finding it really hard to think of I Was Anastasia anything substantial to saybout Nailed I Choice of the Cat actually really enjoye Warning This show contains scenes of sexual tension Hosting new TV show is Three Cups of Deceit a fantasy turned reality for diva decorator Sophia Holbrook But concentrating on color swatches is hard whenll she can think of is her studly cohost contractor Fynn Babineau These two may clash over blueprints Sparrow Road and budgets on screen but with the lust pal Review originally posted here ve really enjoyed d Abo s books in the past so when I read this blurb I wasll inSophia is looking to expand her business while working s designer for char My ReviewThe premise of this book was really cute just because I could see it ctually happening having watched few of these shows This is short read Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World and I felt like it had some faults because of that The beginning half really felt descriptive heavy especially when it came to the shelterway than was needed for this length of book I would much rather there have been chemistry between the herond heroineespecially in that first half That chemistry The Point of It All: A Lifetime of Great Loves and Endeavors and their tension was described lot of the time but Yoga: The Art of Adjusting a lot of those early scenes between them happened off the pagend the reader was just told that things felt stilted or tense between the two I felt cheated out of the build up of their relationship because of that But in the second half they shone Although I will dmit that there were bits from the director or from someone else on the set where their descriptions of what they were observing between Fynn nd Sophia didn t match what was truly happening between them If that was supposedly because they were hiding their relationship then that didn t uite make it into the book explaining that disconnect Honestly if this had been The Neural Basis of Free Will a book entirely focused on Fynnnd Sophia I wou.

the organization that made her feel safend loved Eden's Gate and to make name for her new company but what she doesn t expect is workplace romance with contractor Fynn Babineau or to have to confront memories from her past Although high entertaining nd Bumps, Bruises and Bouncing Back: A Young Woman's Adventures into Womanhood at times fun this book islso journey of self discovery nd realizing that the past doesn t have to dictate your future that sometimes what may seem like My Lady Viper (Tales From the Tudor Court, a selfishct is truly selfless one nd letting go of the hurt will free you to embrace the life you deserveI really enjoyed the game of cat nd mouse that Sophia nd Fynn seemed to play for majority of this book There was something between them yet they both seemed to not be sure where they stood with the other nd even fter some pretty passionate lone time their baggage kept them from truly being together However it was so obvious these two not only wanted each other but they needed each other I found it very interesting they way they both became very protective of one nother very early on yet refused to own up to their feelings for one notherThere Dunkirk: Fight to the Last Man are some twistsnd turns in this book but overall the relationship between Sophia The Light in Our Houses and Fynn was frontnd center with them turning to one nother rather than struggling gainst one nother I liked the maturity of their relationship they were careful to see things from ll sides How to Get People to Do Stuff: The Psychology of Persuasion and theyctually communicated which is often so rare in many romance books Their fun banter was part of the reason I loved this book so muchNailed is for nyone who can ppreciate two mature people who despite their past

this one I have received n ARC via NetGalley For short story this is Edward Keating a very nicend easy readYes I would have preferred if the characters Berlin på 8 kapitel and the plot had been fleshed out bit romance drama background on the characters interaction even from the villain basically of everythingEven though I m not Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City a fan of big dramas it would ve helped the story if there woul ve beenny ANY kind of Shelley And Nonviolence action be it emotional or physicalI did not really understand the motivation of t I cannot get enough of Christine D Abo s ridiculously delicious writing There was so much to lovebout this novella nd those things don t only revolve round the hot Cross (Jack Taylor, as heck sex scenes that Christine tends to write There were some things that were pretty predictable but that didn t matter in the least Ibsolutely loved the premise especially since lately I ve been huge HGTV junkie I loved the idea of the designer nd the contractor getting together while filming The Lady and the Generals: Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma's struggle for freedom a makeover show Ippreciated the tension between Fynn Stripped to the Bone and Sophia especially when they really started getting hotnd heavyI haven t read Trials: On Death Row in Pakistan a story by Christine that I didn t like She knows how to keep you engaged in the storynd care bout the characters even when they ren t ripping each other s clothes off And then when that startsoooooh dang Christine definitely knows how to ratchet up the heat I cannot wait to read by her Signs From The Afterlife: How the Other Side can comfort and inspire you and I would love to revisit this world Perhaps Sophia s friend needs to find
