Romance on Aisle Sixteen—opposites attract amid the hammers and screws of the home improvement store. Gabe Mason became a father at seventeen, and his daughter, Ellie, is the most important thing in his life. But being the parent the courts demand means Gabe has given up most of his dreams—education, making furniture, a gay social life—to be a model dad with a steady, reliable job in a home improvement store. Life’s predictable until Jerry, a shy, eccentric guy in a hat and sunglasses, begs Gabe to oversee the renovation of his run-down mansion. Gabe loves the house and the work, and Jerry's pretty lovable too, but when Gabe discovers Jerry’s secret identity, he fears their passion could overturn both their lives forever.

Finding your heart and choosing your future theme is beautifully done in this story. Carving our a bit of life for you when the world is demanding so much of your time can be daunting. These MC's both have immense demands on their time and their commitments are important. I really enjoyed the low angst and beautifully crafted plot that moves the reader on a journey that will touch your heart. Gabe and Jerry are wonderful characters that i found touchable and was rooting for them to find their way to love. The book is well written and it flows nicely. I love the way the author took a very simple phase of 'customer on isle sixteen' and has created an image in my mind that will last for years. I was gifted this book from the author and i freely give my review.

I always love Tara Lain’s work so I dove into this book expecting to enjoy it. I did not expect to LOVE it. Every bit of this book great. There was only one truly bad character and thankfully we see very little of him. Ellie is beyond awesome. Her mom has her moments. Gabe is amazing. He’s a fantastic dad, very humble and caring, and a smart guy. Jerry is complex and endearingly cute. His solution when things hit the fan had me reacting the same way as Ellie. The love scenes were great and didn’t dominate the story; it was all about the buildup and plot. I was totally invested in the house renovations, especially knowing it’s a real place. I was absolutely glued to the page from start to finish. Home Improvement was so good! Riveting, sweet, and fun, this just became a new favorite!

Home Improvement by Tara Lain is a sweet single dad romance that I just adored. Gabe Mason is a gifted carpenter but there isn’t a big market for custom furniture where he lives so he works in a home improvement store and makes do so his daughter can see her mother. I loved Ellie the daughter. She is smart, gifted and a terrific kid. It took me a bit to warm up to Jerry but by the end I loved him just as much as Gabe and Ellie. This story is guaranteed to warm the cockles of even the hardest heart.
