Yet part of Lizzie wishes she did have a man’s help, just for small stuff, like fixing up the house. Her fairy godmother must have been listening, because Dante “Tay” Giovanni soon appears. He’s sexy, kind, and offering assistance–no strings attached.
Slowly, steadily, Lizzie’s heart opens. But the grip of the past is fierce, and nothing in life is ever really free. Tay has his own tragedies to overcome, but if he can, he’ll fix more than Lizzie’s home. He’ll show her just how sweet it is to be loved by him.
About the Author
Sophie Gunn grew up in suburban Philadelphia, but raced to New York City as soon as she got the chance. After four years at Columbia University, she worked at several of Manhattan’s top advertising agencies as a copywriter, penning ads for Pepsi, BMW, Sony, and other major brands. When her husband got a job in a tiny town in upstate New York, she knew her ad career was over. So she opened a computer file and typed, “Chapter One.” Now, she’s back in Philadelphia, six blocks from where she grew up, with her two cats, two kids, and one husband, writing what she loves and wondering why she ever left. She loves to hear from readers, so visit SophieGunn.com to contact her and to find out more.

First of all, I really enjoyed this one, but you must suspend your beliefs in order to truly get into the story. Thee were a few plot points that I had to take with a grain of salt. Lizzie gets pregnant and keeps the baby with her parents help and when they die, she inherits the property. Due to her small salary as a waitress, she can maintain the house and things are falling apart.
Enter Tay, a handsome and handy man who offers to help Lizzie fix the house asking nothing in return. Tay hears Lizzie in the diner mention that she need things fixed and in his guilt he offers help. Tay has immense guilt over an accident he caused killing Linda and leaving her daughter, Candy, penniless. Tay sells everything he owns and gives Candy the money which she promptly throws off a bridge. This is where the plot lost me. I can’t imagine anyone throwing money away, especially someone who needs it.
So Tay and Lizzie work through their issues and resolve their conflicts. There are some sweet and humorous moments as well that will have you saying “AWWW”. This story is the set up for a series of four(?) total books about the Enemy Club. I loved the author’s writing so much that I will definitely want to read more from her. I received this book at no charge from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
