TITLE - Stud
AUTHOR - Kelly Siskind
A down-to-earth carpenter. A Prada loving personal shopper.
A Habitat for Humanity project that erects more than walls…
The word “nail” has so many meanings:
Ainsley’s manicured nails belong in the Museum of Modern Art.
The fashionista hammers nails at Habitat for Humanity.
She desperately wants to nail Owen Phillips.
Unfortunately, she mistakenly thinks he’s gay.
Owen’s never-ending divorce has taken a turn from messy to downright vindictive. Yearning for the simpler things in life, like working with his hands, he joins a Habitat build. Turns out he also wants to work over Ainsley Hall…but the confusing bombshell flirts blatantly with other men.
When Ainsley discovers Owen’s true sexuality, their mutual attraction ignites, but he hasn’t shared the extent of his divorce drama. If he can’t disprove his ex’s false allegations, it will take more than hammers and nails (and nailing studs) to keep their walls from caving in.
A new to me author that I am going to be reading more books from! The writing just flowed nicely off the pages. From the humour to the dynamic duo of the main characters this book is one to read. This book was surely entertaining! It had me laughing. The characters in this story could be based off of real life situations and those are the stories that I like to read about.
The two main characters in Stud are Owen and Ainsley. Ainsley personality is great from her sassiness to her loving her family to helping others in the fashion department. Owen is the stud in this story with such a heart and a softy for sure. They meet at Habitat for Humanity and the misunderstanding has Ainsley not going after him even with sparks. Owen and Ainsley both had stories in there past that was shared in this story which to me made the story even more real and fun to read. They have some chemistry going and when the story continues you'll need a fan to cool off. The flirting between them was also great moments.
I liked how each chapter started off with a crossword term it added a nice touch throughout the story. If you like romantic comedies then go add this to your tbr.
Parts of the story I like:
When Owen and Ainsley ate lunch and a squirrel came by~ what they both said was funny.
"Zombie bites to the nuts."
"With the right person, it's more intense."
