"Under Construction" by author Mila Rossi.
My Rating: 4 Stars

This was my first novel be Mila Rossi and I would definitely like to read more from her in the future.

I was a bit apprehensive about reading this novel after reading the synopsis. Let me explain. I am not a fan of cheating. That said let me put your mind at ease that there is no cheating among the H/h. However...the heroine Lessi was married and while she was faithful, her husband was cheating on her for a while. Lessi's ma

**Copy from the author for an honest review**

This was a novella size book that is quick and easy to read.

Lessi is in an unhappy marriage and when remodelling of their home is taking place her husband walks out.

Her sexy contractor Carlos picks up quickly that things are not right and the sexual tension is strong. However it is only when he sees the husband kissing another woman that he starts to make his move.

I liked the fact that Lessi stayed strong to her marriage vows until she knew things we

Under Construction is the author's first foray into the contemporary romance genre. I picked it up on a lark and had no expectations whatsoever. I was sucked in after only a few pages into the story and each time I had to put it down I couldn't wait to return to the book. I will definitely be reading more of Mila Rossi.

P.S. There were some typos throughout the book.

If she's feeling nostalgic, she writes historical romance under the name Alice Lake.

“Carlos began writing in his folder. “I have eight guys working with me and a project this size would take about eight weeks.”
“Eight weeks?” she shot back. “That seems an awfully long time.”
He raised his eyebrows and actually smiled. “Yes, but I guess a rookie like you wouldn’t know that.”
This time it was she who frowned back. “Smart-ass,” she mumbled and decided to ignore the dimple in his right cheek. She shouldn’t have encouraged smiling. It was definitely not working in her favor. He didn’t look at all like the nice, safe fellow she had wished for.”
“She opened the door in her pajamas and judging by her hair, she’d just woken up, but hell, even in the morning the little pop-tart looked good. Her cheeks were rosy and her lips were plump and ready.” 1 likes
