Rick dropped onto his bed, staring at the ceiling and wishing he was anywhere but here. He looked at his hands, hands now those of a twenty-five-year-old man. They were stained in a few places with car grease, thick from working out, and scarred across both palms from the accident. The accident. His badge of shame.
He wondered how differently life would have gone five long years ago if he’d taken Sean’s dare to kiss Grace. Would she have hated him more for doing it than not doing it? Would she have accused him of using her for a thrill instead of showing her how he truly felt? He feared both as much as he feared showing his feelings to Sean. Still, was there something—anything—he could have done that would have changed that awful night?
Grace’s clumsiness annoyed Scott and gave Sean another reason to tease her, which upset Rick. Everybody had clumsy moments. Even clumsy days. After all, he smacked himself in the face with a wrench this afternoon and had to chase it across the garage floor before he snagged it. He was the klutz, not Grace.
He sighed, wondering if what Hannah often told him was right. Sometimes angels came along and, in the strangest ways, guided God’s children in the right direction. Coming here had been a last-minute decision, the thought jumping into his head out of the middle of nowhere. But maybe this week might turn out to be a gift from Heaven. If he could get past Grace Evans’ defenses, he might be able to earn her forgiveness, even if he wasn’t able to find a way into her heart.

Maitland is a successful businessman on his way up the corporate
ladder. Life is good, but life is also full of the unexpected. A
scientific experiment goes awry and Alanâ€™s mind is transferred to
the body of Hana Toussaint, a high-class escort. Suddenly, he must
not only contend with a new identity, but with the eye-opening
experience of living as a female: how to walk in high heels without
falling; how to put on a bra without dislocating a shoulder; how to
deal with makeup without poking out an eye; and how to get along in a
society which in many ways is still male-dominated.
Alan discovers that Hana has taken over his body, the two of them
must work together to find the scientist who can reverse the
experiment and give them back their respective lives. Along the way,

Janette Rallison/ CJ Hill writes books because writing is much more fun than cleaning bathrooms.Â Â Her avoidance of housework has led her to writing 26 novels that have sold over 1,000,000 print copies andÂ have been on many reading and state lists. Her books are fantasy, sci-fi, and romantic comedy because hey, there is enough angst in real life, but thereâ€™s a drastic shortage of humor, romance and hot guys who fight dragons.Â She lives in Arizona with her husband, kids, and enough cats to classify her as eccentric.Â
Top Ten ListÂ about Janette
1) She writes books insteadÂ ofÂ doing housework. (This is only fun if you’re the one ignoring the dishes.)
2) She has five kids and is still (mostly) sane.
3) Her favorite book as a child was The Phantom Tollbooth. It’s the reason she wrote TheÂ WrongÂ SideÂ ofÂ Magic. She wanted to do a book with fun word play and fantasy characters
4) She had a crush on Richard Hatch (Apollo from Battlestar Galactica) and so if she’s describing a brown-haired hero in oneÂ ofÂ her romance novels. yeah, it’s probably him.
5) She can’t say no to a stray cat, if the ones residing in her back yard are any indication
6) Double-jointed elbows
7) Has a collectionÂ ofÂ dolls, teacups, and china–proving that her inner child is a Victorian old lady
8) Has seen every versionÂ ofÂ Pride and Prejudice ever filmed. (The full-length BBC one is the best.)
9) Was born on her grandmother’s birthday.
10) Is the motherÂ ofÂ the Odd1sOut creator
Love Under Construction blurb
What do you do when your boss makes someone else the lead on a big renovation project that should rightfully be yours? You quit. On second thought, that might not be the best idea, but Charlee Jackson has never been one for second thoughts. Instead, she lands a big contract of her own. She’s jumping into her new lifeâ€”work boots, tool belt and all. Now she just needs to form a company and hire contractors and buy supplies and get an office and not fall in love with her former boss’s son. Yeah. Definitely not that last one.
You can’t date someone who works for you, but now that his dad let Charlee walk out the door, Peter Elliot is considering his options. Charlee was their top renovation expert, his best friend’s sister, and the only thing that made the drudgery of running a large construction business bearable. But how do you date a competitor, especially one your father is trying to drive out of business? It would be stupid to make your dad angry right before he retires and hands the company over to you. Right?
When Charlee and Peter are scheduled to work on the same Indulgence Row house, their feelings and priorities are put to the test. They need to make a choice, and they better be quick about it, because the whole mixture is curing fast and threatening to crumble to pieces.
My Review: 5 stars
Love Under Construction by Danyelle Ferguson is a delightful clean romance that will help you escape your life for a few hours. It is the kind of book that you want to read on a lazy day with a cool drink in the summer or a hot cocoa in the winter. Either way you will find it a great escape from your everyday life. The ending will make you say “Ohhhhhhhhh” and sigh.
Love Under Construction is a great story about two normal people that need to sort out their feelings for each other and their personal ghosts. It is fun to see how Charlee, the main character grows and the different things she learns and the progress she had during the telling. Peter also has some growing to do, and they need to learn how to relate to each other.
Being her own boss means a lot of pressure falls on Charlee’s shoulders. This is a pressure that heightens when she discovers that Peter, her brother’s best friend, may have feelings for her. However, the problem only arises when Peter’s father comes between them, out of revenge, and pandemonium breaks loose.
Love Under Construction is a clean book even for YA, but it is intended for adults. Enjoy…
