Publisher's Summary

Heavy rains and strong winds slammed an uprooted tree through Steve Crowell's roof, leaving a gaping hole to match the one in his heart. After his ex left him for a younger man, Steve's not sure he's ready to handle another disaster.
His best friend highly recommended a contractor, but the man's already late. When he shows up with his music thumping, Steve isn't impressed. Until Riley steps out of his pickup truck. Personable, gorgeous, Riley talks a mile a minute, which Steve finds both ridiculously endearing and terrifying. Piecing together a heart isn't as easy as fixing a roof, but Riley might just be the right man for the job.

Hmm

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and how Steve and Riley danced around each other and decide to each take a chance on the other. However, I felt the story is incomplete. I wanted more from this story, to see how they interact and live. Perhaps an epilogue would work...

Not much to it, but a nice story.

Sweet story about the very beginnings of a romance. If you want ANY relationship development past the flirty, getting-to-know-you phase before a first date, look elsewhere.

I have a thing for May-December romances, but this barely felt like one. Other than the author's overemphasis on the 45-year old MC looking old (with bifocals and gray hair, I mean, my hubby is nearly 40 and still smoking hot! :D), it felt like any other story.

I liked talkative Riley with his BIG tool belt (heh, but seriously, I could have used some sex content so I could have found our just how big his tool was) and his super-flirtatious ways. I thought his interactions with Steve were cute, and though I wish there was more to the story, it was a nice taste of the start of their relationship.

In terms of the narration, I found Philip Alces to be a bit... theatrical for my tastes. I didn't find either of his voices for the two MCs to be particularly appealing, and though he was a very enthusiastic narrator, I wasn't crazy about him. This might just be personal preference, though. He did a decent job, but I'm not sure if I'd listen to him again.

All in all, a very "good" story without being a standout.
