Can these opposites turn up the heat… without burning down the house?

House-flipping sensation and YouTube star Maggie Nichols can’t wait to dig into her next challenge. Arriving in tiny Kinship, Idaho, with only a cot and a coffeemaker, Maggie is prepared to restore a crumbling Victorian mansion in four months or less. She has her to-do lists, her blueprints, and her team. What she doesn’t have is time for sexy, laid-back landscaper Silas Wright.

The man takes flirtation to a whole new level. And he does it shirtless…sometimes pants-less. He and his service school-dropout dog are impressively persistent. But she’s not interested in putting down roots. Not when fans tune in to watch her travel the country turning dilapidated houses into dream homes. A short-term fling on the other hand could fit nicely into her calendar. After all, Maggie remembers what fun is like. Vaguely.

As their summer gets downright steamy, Silas manages to demolish the emotional walls she’s spent years building, sending Maggie into a panic. He’s the wrench in her carefully constructed plans. With the end of the project looming, she has a decision to make. But how can she stay when her entire career is built on moving on?

This was just the first Lucy Score novel, and although I struggled through it (so much italic font), I definitely will not be the last. I adore all things HGTV, so when I read this summary, I knew I had to read it. Maggie is a YouTube Channel star with almost a million followers flipping houses. She heads to the small town in kinship, Idaho, hoping to restore a crumbling mansion. There she meets sexy landscaper Silas (who falls first), and Maggie does her best not to fall in love with him or the charming town. The found family, the HILARIOUS BANTER, and the steam made this a 5-star read for me; the only reason it is knocked down to a four is for readability. I prefer to hold a paperback in my hand, and this font was a struggle for me to get through. The words just kept floating off the page. My fellow dyslexic friends should pick this up on eBook or audio because it's still a must-read in my book. Link in my bio for my full review & don't forget to pick up your copy today.

What Lucy Score Book should I pick up next?
