SynopsisHe can fix her sink, but can he wrench his way into her heart?

Flynn McCauley never thought he’d be so clich√© as to fall for the girl next door. But when Maddie calls him over to help fix her faulty sink, he’s a goner. Too bad the fiercely independent interior designer wants nothing to do with him. 

Even worse, he’s forced to rely on the advice of his nosy brothers—and his five-year-old nephew!—to figure out how to make her give him a shot.



McCauley brother? Yum! Where can I get one?

Flynn McCauley is a plumber by trade but a dreamboat in my book. *sighs blissfully* He is always happy to entertain a beautiful lady. Yet, Flynn isn't quite ready for what he finds when he visits his neighbor's house to fix a sink: a fiery red headed woman in a rage.

Maddie is having a very bad day. Her current relationship has ended and she just discovered that her boss is a perverted jerk. Without a job or a plan, her world is crashing around her. But in the middle of her rant against the world, she finds a dangerously handsome man standing in her kitchen, witnessing her in her very worst moment.

Rather than fleeing the mad woman, Flynn is intrigued by the gorgeous Maddie. Despite his brother's warning to leave her alone, Flynn just can't seem to do it. But Maddie is in no hurry to jump into another relationship. She wants no-strings attached.

And Flynn is perfectly fine with that. For a while... But eventually, even the best laid plans go awry and soon the two have to decide if they want more or should walk away.

I loved the characters in this book. There were several of them, but each got a fair amount of time for development, even the secondary characters. Pacing was good and the story flowed well. Even the downtime scenes were interesting and the dialogue was believable. I really enjoyed the budding romance, even though I wanted to strangle Maddie, at times, for being so stubbornly independent. In all, it was a pleasurable read!

In closing...
I can't remember what made me pick up this book at the library but I sure am glad that I did. I will definitely be continuing this series! Four suns!
