Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise are back with an all-new romantic comedy filled with Southern sass and steamy scenes that will have you laughing out loud and fanning yourself. Pour the sweet tea and get ready…
“The best way to get over your sh**ty ex-fiancé is to get under a shiny new stud…”
As soon as Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle.
A few stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home run—until he disappears without a trace.
Whatever. Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway.
I resolve to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B.
What I don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen!
You see, my sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home improvement star of The Right Stud, and he’s got an offer I can’t refuse.
With a suitcase in one hand and a hammer in the other, he wants to move in and renovate my old house while he films his new show.
But my roommate has secrets, and they threaten to rip our blossoming friendship—and possible love—apart.
In The Right Stud by Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise, Ashton is over men, especially after discovering her fiancé was cheating on her. However, with a little encouragement from her best friend, she decides to go out and hopefully have some fun. Meeting Jax Roland promises to be a night she won't forget until he disappears and doesn't return like he promised. But when she finds he's her new guest and the star of the home improvement show she contacted to renovate her house, she decides keeping her distance from him is best. Yet, Jax isn't about to let that happen. Not when there's so much chemistry bouncing between them. Will Ashton be able to put her trust in another man again or will Jax's secrets ruin any chance they have at happy ever after?
What a fun and captivating read Ms. Mills and Ms. Louise have delivered in this book that had me laughing and smiling throughout and where the main characters entertained me from the start to finish; the secondary characters were just as entertaining as the main ones; and the dialogue had me enjoying the growing relationship between Jax and Ashton, their back stories and everything they go through on their journey to happy ever after, especially the moment their relationship goes awry. The way this story started had me liking the heroine immediately, as she's brave in doing what she's doing. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine meet where things get very interesting, as Jax is interested, but has his reasons for disappearing. Will Ashton be able to trust Jax?
With the main characters, the heroine is resilient, stubborn and I liked how determined she was to open a B&B as long as she can get the house renovated and ready to accept guests. I also liked the tight friendship she shares with her best friend because her friend is encouraging and wants her to be happy and could also really help her when it comes to the issues she's facing with her brother who is more interested in money than supporting his sister's dreams. While the hero, he's confident, hard-working and I liked how determined he was to win over the heroine, especially since the first time they met didn't work out quite as he'd hoped. However, I couldn't help but feel sorry for him because coming back to South Carolina isn't easy for him. Luckily, Ashton -- at least -- make things better, but Jax has secrets that made me feel sorry for the heroine because there was no way the truth wasn't going to come out. Will she be able to forgive him?
Overall, these two authors have penned a really good read in this book where emotions run high, the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance was hot and shows how good these two are together; and the ending had me crying happy tears because of the news the pair receive and because these two are so deserving of their happy ever after that they shouldn't let anything keep them apart. I would recommend The Right Stud by Isla Madden-Mills and Tia Louise, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope, the mysterious strangers trope or books by authors K. Bromberg, Melanie Harlow, Vi Keeland and Corinne Michaels.
