Book Musings - Nailed it by Cindi Madsen

Title : Nailed it
Author : Cindi Madsen
Genre : Contemporary Romance
Source : ARC from Entangled - Netgalley

Blurb :

I'm Ivy Clarke. Bartender, best friend, and disbeliever in love.
And now I'm in over my head, trying to flip a house all by myself.
Thanks, HGTV.
I'm not too proud to admit I need some help. Too bad the only one who can help me is the same man I want to throw out this house's second-story window.
Jackson Gamble and I can't be in the same room together for more than a minute without devolving into a sparring match.
Except for that one time…
But enough about that. Jackson's looking for forever, and I don't believe in love, remember?
Get in. Renovate. Get out. Keep my heart firmly in tact.
Because it's much easier to fix up a house than a broken heart.

Full of humor and dripping with delicious tension, Nailed Itproves that every heart can be ready for a little rehabilitation, if only you're willing to open it up.

My Musings :

As soon as I saw the author's name, I was sure that I wanted to read the book. And then the blurb was interesting enough to want me to commit to the story.

The starting was intriguing with the way Ivy and Jackson were butting heads. But the story was slow in forming into the rest of the tale. It took me a while to get into the flow. Sometimes, Ivy irked me with her actions. I kind of understood her reasons but still she was too much against love!

Then it picked up a bit with the banter between the pair and the hide and seek they were playing with their close ones and themselves which ultimately culminated into THE declaration by Jackson at his parents'. The romance was super hot though both the protagonists were stubborn. I liked Jackson better, way better with his way of dealing with Ivy and his steadfast strength in his love. I wasn't much into Ivy and it changed only a tiny bit towards the end.

The ending was swoon worthy though Ivy's rules and her sudden change nearly gave me whiplash. I can't say I loved the book but it was read-able and I enjoyed parts of it. In truth I expected more from a Cindi Madsen book!

I received a free copy for reviewing purposes voluntarily. This doesn't affect my review in any way.

My one line review : A duel in love between an equally stubborn pair.

My rating : 3.5/5

My reread factor : 3/5
