This is a short teasing story easy to read and very steamy.

Lola Barringer is back in her home town and her house is in serious need of renovation but the last person she expected to see when she called Nailed It was her high school crush Mason Stone. He hasn’t changed he’s still the cocky guy he was then and the day she confessed her crush and sent his friend to let her know she could never be anything to him. That day left her shattered and she vowed never to let him near her heart again only

I recieved this book for Free to Give My True & Honest Review

What a great fast pace short love story.
Where we see old class friends well not so much 'friends' Mason Stone & Lola 'Dolores' Barrington, when Mason whom turns up to remodel her home, where old feelings come back to her which confuses her, especially when Mason seems to react differently towards her than the schooldays.
Things progress so far, in record time, especially from when they open up....

Little story full of tease, yet also sweetly touching. The first chapter is hilarious.

The curvy lady has some past in common with the hot constructor, and that means steamy action and emotional turmoil.

Actually, there's a lot of meaningful interaction between the charactes that precedes the naughty parts, and it feels very warm and lovely.
Mason used to be a player, and didn't appreciate her back in high school as he should have. Lola suffers from a bad experience and struggles with the conseque

Nailed Down was such a steamy hot short read. Lovely characters found themselves in insta-lust right after clearing out and moving on from past hurts.
Such a perfect way to spend a few hours. Really entertaining quick HEA with lovely epilogues.

A short, sweet, steamy story that will tug on the heartstrings.

Lola was easy to relate for me, shy in high school, but an open and warm heart she comes into her own as she grows into an adult. Jump ahead to the present, Mason Stone enters the picture. The boy from the wrong side of the tracks, known womanizer and Lola’s all-time crush. With twists and turns, misunderstandings and a lost letter, Mason and Lola miss their moment in high school to have it come again years later.

This is the second book in the Hammers and Veils series and I liked it better than the first. Mason is one of the co-owners of the construction company and he is asked to do an estimate for a new client. Lola is looking for a company to renovate her newly acquired home. Upon first seeing his new client, Mason is instantly attracted to her and what he does not realize is that they have a shared past. Lola knows exactly who Mason is and is reluctant to tell him. She has her own secrets t

This is Mason and Lola's story.

I really wanted to love this book because second chance and enemies to lovers romances are my favorite tropes, but this book fell flat for me and went way too fast. Mason and Lola were high school acquaintances (?) since they weren't really friends; he was the manwh*re jock who treated her terribly while she was the "nerdy" artist who made sure to take care of him even he did treat her badly. I have to say I really didn't like Mason because of what he did to her

Short good romance
I really liked the beginning of this little romance, but then, I was a little disturbed by the speed with which the two heroes say "I love you" while points of their past seem little compatible with such a fast declaration (during 24 hours, they spend just a few hours together). Moreover, I did not understand the reasons for the changes of Lola / Dolores' first names. I thought it was due to Lola's past, but finally, the hero Mason, passes from one to the other without reaso

Wow, I loved this story so much!

Mason takes on a new job for his construction company, not realizing for quite a while that the homeowner is the same girl he knew in high school. Lola may have grown up a lot, but her heart has never let go of Mason, even after he let her down in the worst way.

This is such a sweet, heartwarming story! Lola is the one person who has always seen past Mason's public face to the man he is inside, and it's absolutely beautiful to watch her bring that out in him once m

This is a super-quick read that’s a bit clichéd with a storyline that’s quite predictable. Lola and Mason met in high school. She was the clumsy girl with glasses and braces who morphed into a beautiful swan six years later. Mason was the school athlete and popular man on campus. These days he’s still a womanizer, but getting tired of that scene. Their story plays out pretty much as I anticipated with no surprises; it’s pretty hard to have a lot go on when the story is so short. Despite that, it ...more

3.5 stars..

A quick steamy read that is an Insta-love story. Lola needs some remodeling and Mason is just the guy for the job. Mason has decided he wants more than some meaningless hook up. When he first sees Lola he feels an instant attraction and would love nothing more than to act on it. Of course he doesn't have the best track record where women are concerned. Lola remembers just what Mason was like in high school, and she also feels the same attraction Mason does.

Lola is Delores.

Lola Barrington has a major crush on Mason Stone in high school. He was a player and broke her teenage heart.

Mason Stone doesn’t do commitment. He’s potty mouthed and absolutely doesn’t remember Lola. He’s into Lola, Delores, not so much. He was a total tool toward her in high school.

He’s at her house to do an estimate on her bathroom remodel but things get interesting right away. It’s oret instant.

Has he changed in six years?
Can he man up and nail her down?
Or is he still messed

Mason was instantly attracted to Lola when he met her at her house to review her renovation plans. He didn’t recognize her, but Lola recognized him and was not a happy camper.
Seeing the love of her life along with memories that crushed her spirit and her heart, Lola is thrown off her axis.
I liked that as soon as Mason realized who Lola was, he remembered the horrible way he treated her.
The rest of the book had him trying to make amends for his boneheaded behavior. It really didn’t

This is the second delicious romp of this series by C.M. Seabrook and Frankie Love and it's one not to be missed! It surrounds Mason and Lola. He fancies her as soon as he steps in her house but she is furious with him as he crushed her heart years ago and she wants nothing to do with him - at all. Lola, however, is equally determined that he's not coming near her other than to do the work commissioned for her. With great banter that is flirtatious and witty and with twists and turns and misunde ...more

This book has me wondering what to say. I liked a lot of it - the redemption that Mason finds with Lola, the 2nd chance at love. But there was also a lot that I didn't really like - the dialogue swung from corny to cringey; there was obviously things that happened in their pasts to make them who they are now which isn't covered. I did like this story but I felt that it could have been so much better if it was longer and given the opportunity to flesh out and address things that were only hinted ...more

Lola and Mason have a sappy-sweet story that starts from a high school crush. Lola only ever wanted one guy and that's Mason Stone but in high school he had his own issues so he couldn't see the girl that as he shows up now for an appraisal is going to bring him to his knees.

Lola and Mason move fast and are the definition of insta-cute. Even when the truth comes out about what happened with the jacket and mystery letter, these two are going to melt your heart, cause fre

A very well written short but easy to read story. Nice storyline and plot. Likeable characters who are well defined and develops nicely through the story.
A mix of drama, secrets, experience from earlier days, misunderstandings and twists. I like the way it is written. You jump right into the story and learn to know the characters. It is written in dual POV which gives the reader more of the feelings and thoughts of the main characters an bring it closer ot the reader.

I really enjoyed reading this book. When Lola was looking for a contractor to help renovate her home she never thought the one she chose would bring her face to face with the one person she didn't want to see, Mason. Mason was from the wrong side of the tracks and grew up rough. He never saw Lola for who she was or that her feelings for him were more than that of friends. Good story line and great characters.

In true Frankie and CM form this steamy insta-love is another good one. My gosh, at one point i teared up. Amazing how such a short story can hit all the feels. Lola was the bookish girl that crushed on Mason all through high school. Mason was the bad boy, football player that never really saw her. Or did he? Lola ends up being Mason's next renovation job. When they meet again sparks fly, good and bad. They have a second chance to make up for what they missed out on if they can get

Mason and Lola's journey started when they were in high school but Mason was having serious issues coming from a dysfunctional home. They meet again when Mason comes to Lola's home to give an appraisal for a construction job. Neither knew that the day would change the outcome of their lives. This story has some triggers that brings out bad memories but it is a story that will have you cheering this couple on an applauding Lola for not giving up on herself.
