    Review:

    I really enjoyed this story. HER HANDS-ON MAN is the classic tale of love gone wrong based on a pigheaded fool who refuses to listen to reason because he is unwilling to confront his true feelings and would rather say screw it all to hell instead. Nice, long, sentence, yes? LOL Unfortunately, the fool Jake, ends up hurting Ivy tremendously. And Ivy has had so much hurt from Jake that she is not sure she can handle another rejection. This unexpected meeting has thrown her for a loop and brought her desire for this stubborn man raging back to the surface. He was the center of her world and vice versa. She knows the truth, but the trick will be in getting Jake to actually hear the truth of what really happened. If not, then she will walk away with a bruised and battered heart.

    ........

    I enjoyed my time spent with the characters and only wish I had read a full-length novel instead. I found myself curious about Jake and Ivy’s back story. How did they meet? When did their relationship begin? What type of lives did they lead before getting together?

    My only issue with the story is that the explanation given for Jake’s brother’s behavior was too short. Yes, it made sense. And worked for the purpose of this novella, but I couldn’t help but feel that there could have been so much more to it than that. There had to have been other incidents that put the brothers at odds. Had to have been scenes played out between Jake’s brother and his father and the separation that occurred so many years ago. Basically, while I really enjoyed the story, I crave more knowledge about the characters.

    So I think you can see that overall, this was a terrific story. The intimacy was scorching up the pages. The familiarity between the characters was an added benefit because they didn’t have to waste time getting to know one another’s likes and dislikes. Another fantastic component was how Ivy knew what Jake was communicating without only a look. He is a man of little words and their connection allows her to understand him. Their love was obvious. And I found myself rooting for Jake to listen. Of course I also wanted to clobber him for believing Ivy would do such a thing in the first place; especially given his brother’s track record. I connected with Jake and Ivy and was drawn in to this novella very easily. I highly recommend giving this story a read. It is a quick, entertaining read with some fantastic sex scenes and characters you like immediately.
