Release Date: January 1
My year is off to a terrible start. Fired from my job and dumped by my boss-boyfriend at the same time (lesson learned the hard way, don’t even start), I’m forced to adopt the ‘New Year, New You’ mantra whether I want to or not. The only silver lining is a rundown old house my estranged aunt left to me in Starlight Bay, Massachusetts.
That is, until I run head-on—literally—into Jackson Montgomery, local hometown superstar and the best contractor in town. He offers to help with renovations so I can rent it as a side hustle once I find a job and move back to Boston. Unfortunately, he does not offer to date me, which is a crying shame because he’s exactly what I didn’t know I was looking for.
I’ve never made a New Year’s resolution until this year. Why? Because I think they’re stupid and 99.9% of people break them within six weeks. But after my girlfriend cheated on me with my (ex-) best friend, I knew I had to do it. Give up dating for at least a year, but maybe the rest of adulthood.
What I hadn’t counted on was meeting Harper, a perky city girl just begging to be kissed. Fixing up her late aunt’s house was proving to be a bigger job than I could handle in the feelings department and I didn’t like it one little bit. I just needed to get her fixer-upper fixed so she could get out of Starlight Bay before something happened I couldn’t repair with a hammer and some nails.

Review by Nancy
Harper is having a terrible time of it. She gets fired from her job. The good news? Her estranged Aunt has left her a house. It’s creepy, but with renovations it could be amazing. What’s amazing is this hot contractor she bumped into, Jackson. He’s going to help her with the reno. And ladies, Jackson is the ideal man. He’s hard-working, attractive, and kind. Harper isn’t sure if she wants to start something and she hasn’t been able to find another job. You’ll have to read it to find out what happens. This is a super-cute and sweet story. I loved Jackson, if you couldn’t guess! This was such a great way to end the year we’ve had. Kendrick wrote the perfect slow-burn novella. You’ll love it! 4.5 stars
