Who knew home repair could be so sexy?

When my hunky neighbor Carter spies me wrestling a chunk of dry rot on the front porch of my piece of sh*t, moneypit, rundown, not-so-home-sweet-home, it seems help is on the way.
Especially when Tanner, Wyatt, and Dig join the team.
And it turns out my house was not the only thing that desperately needed attention. The guys get to work

Dumped, in debt, and about to lose her house which is close to falling down already, Jayma is prepared to move in with her best friend and start over when her life starts to turn around. Her cute next-door neighbor and his best friend, her geek-chic co-worker, and her plumber's hot son all show interest in her now that she's single. And they all want to help.

Surprisingly not too bad or at least not as bad as the book before it. Some peppered spelling errors which wasn’t surprising as the last book had some of the same issues. The plot itself is instalove, girl falls down on her luck with her last boyfriend, gets saddled with a wreck of a home that is getting foreclosed on. And magically she falls for guys that all have a way to help her fix her house (what are the chances 🙄) and just like the last book they all agree to move in with each o

Hot Dates

The story is pretty good. It gets a little bogged down in the getting to know her/him with 4 guys. The guys only really get to know each other over half-way through the story and it's kinda strange that her friend who doesn't know any of the guy's ends up setting them all up... I actually expected her to tell them all at dinner at her house and then the neighbour could offer his house... Just think that sounds more realistic...But it's not what happened . For me I kinda liked the two fr

Fantastic 5!

Mika is a new author for me, but I have been enthralled with the environments she creates in her stories. This one definitely has the reader pulled in and feeling everything Jayma is feeling. All her guys treat her great in their own ways and I don’t blame her for wanting to keep them all around. At some points I was a little angered by Jayma’s inner dialogue about her insecurities but of course the guys always made her feel better. The push and pull between them all was great.
Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
With her boyfriend walking out the door and a foreclosure looming in her future, Jayma’s life is on a downward spiral. That is until she opens up her heart to four separate men that not only bring her love but hopes to fix the house, sell it before the bank takes it and give her a job opportunity that she cannot walk away from. With great characters and a storyline that was heartwarming and uplifting from the opening pages this book was a great read.

This was a really cute book. At first I thought is was a little slow going but the further I got into the book I understand why the was so much detail. I love the guys they are all sweet and kind they Jayme the why she should be and he ex what a douche bag I wanna punch him my self! Jayme’s friend Shelley has to be one of my favorite characters ( other then the guys of course) she tells it like it is and is not afraid to put things in motion. lol over all really cute story and I love the HEA

This was a dirty guilty pleasure read. Full of hot manly men and their beautiful, and sweet red headed queen. You start out nervous that it just could never work, but it does work. It works in the best possible ways. You’re definitely going to find yourself aching for what Jayma has. Why choose when you can have it, and then, all?! It’s a happy little read that will leave you all hot and bothered, and swooning for such sweet romantic men.

This hot, over-the-top romance centers around bad-boy alpha dudes with a penchant for pursuing and protecting the women who give them a run for their money.

Super steamy and sweet RH

This was a really sweet and steamy Contemporary Reverse Harem book. I loved Jayma and I loved her guys. Each one was so sweet and good for her. They all brought something necessary to her life, and it was great to see her blossom under their attention and affection.

Okay read

The book started off well, stupid ex boyfriend being a meany pants. But as the book went on it got kind of repetitive on how she met the guys. How they all took it so easy was a little fairy taleish to me. I would wished for more drama, but meh.

This is a HEA book though. So that’s always nice.

Soooo good!

The second book not surprisingly was just as good as the first.
I love how all the men are considerate and loving. They again are not man-whores nor pigs!
We have another strong and outstanding female character who knows what she wants and goes for it!
The 5 of them fit together like a glove!
It is wonderful to see the story evolve and I wish there was more!

This is a good stand-alone contemporary RH novel by Mika Lane. There is a lot of steam in this book but the refreshing thing about this book is the MC confidence in herself and the fact that she did what she felt was right for her with no judgement! This is a fun easy read and a good book to sit down with at night or on the weekend. I look forward to reading more books by this fantastic author.

I really enjoyed this story. Jayma's boyfriend leaves her with a house that is about to be foreclosed on. Just when she thinks there is nothing she can do she meets 4 amazing guys. They help her realize things can be better and she doesn't have to give up.

This is a fun, over-the-top RH fairy tale with a HEA. The story isn't a deep read, mostly because of the length, but the characters are fun and it will keep you entertained. Perfect when you want a fun escape from the real world.

Couldn't get into this

The writing to me seemed choppy. There wasn't any smoothness, due to this I just couldn't get into this story. Didn't expect much and the story lineisok. Just writing style isn't for me.

It was a little bit unbelievable but if your willing to forgo reality then this was a short, fun steamy read.
