She's a work in progress . . . He's a fixer upper . . .
Releasing March 21st, 2017
She's a work in progress . . .
Bailey Meredith has had it. As an assistant at a prestigious interior design firm, she’s tired of making coffee and filing invoices. She’ll do just about anything to get out from under the paperwork and into the field for real experience. Then she sees an ad for a job that seems too good to be true.
He's a fixer upper . . .
Wilder Aldrich knew she would be perfect for the crew the moment he saw her. His hit home improvement show only hired the best, and Bailey had potential written all over her. It isn’t just her imaginative creativity and unmatched work ethic that grabs his attention. There’s just something about her.
With chemistry on screen, it’s only a matter of time before sparks fly behind the scenes as well. But with Bailey’s jaded views on romance and a big secret that could destroy Wilder and everyone he cares about, are either of them willing to risk it all for love?
This was my first Laura Chapman book and I quite enjoyed this story. When it comes to Bailey and Wilder, the saying that opposites attract couldn't be further from the truth. When we meet Bailey at the start of the book, it quickly becomes obvious that she's a worrier, but I do wish we could have gotten clarification about why she's a worrier. She's also dead set against being in a relationship and wants no part of love. But again, why? Is it because of her parents? Her attitude and thoughts about love and relationships did frustrate me at times in the story. Kudos for Wilder's decision regarding the situation between he and his ex, especially since that also affects his daughter's life. The ex is the type I have no use for: can do what she wants when she wants to but expects Wilder's life to be status quo. And she had no problems using their daughter as a pawn to keep him in limbo.
