Love Under Construction by Danyelle Ferguson


Synopsis:

Charlee was angry . . .

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 life—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.

Peter was torn . . .

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: 4 Stars

2nd time around and this is still cute! :)

Charlee absolutely loves renovation work. It doesn't matter if it's a house or a desk, she is in her element when she's restoring things to their former glory. When the opportunity arises to renovate Indulgence Row, Charlee would love nothing more than to take lead on the project. She takes her idea to her boss only to be told that Peter will be the project leader. Charlee gives him an ultimatum, let her be lead or she'll quit. George refuses and Charlee leaves to start up her own restoration company. 

Peter is furious when he finds out what his father has done. He can't believe his father let their top renovation expert quit because of his father's stupid pride of letting a woman take lead on a project. He knows that she would be the perfect lead but he can't go against his father's wishes... not when he is so close to his father retiring and him taking over Elliot Construction. But there is one positive that can come out of Charlee no longer working for Elliot Construction.. Peter can now act on his feelings for her.

Watching Charlee and Peter embark on their journey of transitioning from friends to a couple was not without its ups and downs. There were several outside forces trying to keep them apart. But that didn't stop them. They were able to learn about themselves as individuals as well as a couple and became stronger because of it.  

Love Under Construction sucked me in from the very beginning and I could not put it down! I loved every minute of it! I laughed, I cried, I let out lots of dreamy sighs... I even growled in frustrations and wanted to Gibbs slap several people. In other words... it had everything to make it a great book! If only it would NOT have just ended! I know this is a series and it will pick up shortly after were it left off but I wanted just a little bit more! But then again when you love the book, it's never quite long enough... ;) 

And what do you think about this casting?! I love it! :)
