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 the contractor, but the man’s already late, and 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.
Despite the very obvious double (or triple) meaning to the title, I enjoyed Fixing the Hole by Katherine Halle. It is a sweet age gap romance with a little workplace romance thrown in.
Steve has a problem. A bad wind storm sent his favorite tree through his roof and him into the path of contractor Riley. Riley is everything Steve wants nothing to do with. His biggest strike? Being younger than Steve… significantly. Burned once, and all. But while Riley may be young, he still sets his sights squarely on the distinguished Steve.
It takes almost the whole story for Steve and Riley to find each other. I love that Halle wasn’t afraid to leave the romance where she did. Fixing the Hole is all about taking that leap. Seeing if maybe there is more. Seeing if maybe it is time to try again. It is a start, a beginning. It is sweet in its telling and leaves the reader to imagine the happily ever after for Steve and Riley.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
