Overview

A new romantic comedy by M.C. Cerny, Love Under Construction is book one in the Love By Design series. Come meet a sullen, stubborn hero with a 2x4 stuck up his rear about falling in love, and a heroine who has watched every episode of the Property Brothers ready to flip her dream house. Between every construction nightmare possible, animals that need to move out, and friends determined to interfere, what could possible go right? Step into a small town with a big heart, and laugh your way into love. Each book in the LBD series is a standalone HEA romance.

Hunter Hart knows construction. 
He knows relationships hurt after watching his parents self destruct.
Somehow he forgot all the warnings when Taylor Jane Bryant blasted through the crumbling foundation around his heart. 

Taylor Jane Bryant knows home design.
Well... she thinks she knows based on marathon sessions of her favorite television show.
Now she's all grown up and ready to nail the last stud, Hunter Hart.

A funny, realistic, and loveable set of characters Taylor Jane, an interior design graduate, and Hunter, a construction company owner, have been dancing around each other since they met her freshman year in high school. As the story progresses they focus on fulfilling her dream of winning a contest by flipping a home all while dealing with the pains of everyday life. M.C. Cerny gives the reader a funny, realistic, and loveable set of characters to start off her Love By Design series. I really want to see the rest of the group get their HEAs. I received a free copy of the book from the author via Booksprout. I had the opportunity to review or not.

Despite some sad events, this was a fun story to read. The banter between characters was very entertaining and listening in on their thoughts just added to the fun. I enjoyed the jumps back and forth in time. Sometimes that style of writing is difficult to follow but Chapter titles solved that issue. I hope the series continues with the other character’s stories! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a sweet story with strong characters and a fun and entertaining story line. It's a second chance romance between Taylor and Hunter who were best friends for years. It's a cute story with laugh out loud moments and I enjoyed reading. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

I have some very mixed feelings about this book. I love the ‘best friends to lovers’ theme and this book does it very well. I love quirky zany characters and that description fits this group of friends and family to a ”T”. I love a small-town setting and I adore a hero in uniform! But this book really needed to have a better editing job done on it. The number of typos, incorrect word choices, and poor fact checking made me want to pull my hair out by the roots. An allergy to shrimp isn’t necessarily an allergy to seafood – it’s an allergy to crustaceans. A stroke doesn’t happen in the heart, it happens in the brain. The dusting gadget isn’t a “swifter”. I’ve never seen a person “husk” to another place. And how exactly does a successful Marine with “authority issues” work? I’m not a fan of Other Woman drama. I realize that Hunter’s parent’s relationship messed him up. So did the way they died. It’s just really difficult for me to believe that he cares for Taylor Jane the way he’s supposed to when he’s prepared to have and flaunt his FWB relationship in front of her. I also felt like their Happy Ever After happened way to quickly. This pair still had a ton of issues to work through before they got there. I’m curious about Kristen and “Demon”, but I don’t know if I’ll read their book. I received a complimentary copy of this book through Booksprout.

Great book loved it . Hunter was. So sweet and caring towards Taylor Jane and even though he struggled to keep his love as a friendship. You could tell how much they loved each other which was really a great thing

This had a great story with good characters, but I just couldn't get emotionally attached when I read this. There were parts that were funny and engaging, or emotionally serious, then it's going back in time, and it kept on like this plus the dual POV's. I had to stop to think if it was Taylor Jane's or Hunter's at times, plus flashbacks stopped a good flow for me. Friends to finally lovers, the heat finally arrived, with a house flipping in the works, this was a lighter read with an HEA. Not sure I will read more of this series, but I would like to find out if the writing gets more engaging and what happens to the side characters.

Love Under Construction by M.C. CERN's is book number one in the Love By Design series. This is Hunter Hart and Taylor Jane Bryant's story. This was a great funny and steamy friends to lovers romance. Hunter and Taylor's personalities were so different from each other but they were perfect for each other. It was so much fun watching Hunter and Taylor fall in love. Curl up and enjoy a funny romance with lots of sexual tension. FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
