I really liked this book! I enjoyed the characters, and I loved the twins. There were some proofreading issues, but I didn’t feel that it held up the story much. I’m interested in reading some more from this author.

My Review Title: “The twins were an adorable addition!” •*¨*• Writing style: 1st Person POV •*¨*• Story rating: ★★★★★ This was my first novel by this author. I liked the premise even though I think the cover sends the wrong message. The twins were especially entertaining, and the slow build romance between the main characters worked surprisingly well.

Miss Fix It By: Emma Hart ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K Emma Hart delivers another hot, fun, and hilarious read with Miss Fix It… Emma Hart is synonymous with compelling, fun, sexy as hell entertainment, and Miss Fix It totally fits the bill! A single dad and his female carpenter have insane chemistry, trade hilarious banter, and fall hopelessly for one another…what more do you need?! For long time fans, or first time readers, Miss Fix It is a fabulous read. With a fun and unique storyline, plot, and characters, you will fall head over heels for Emma Hart, and her work, I guarantee it. The execution of the storyline was flawless, and of course, fun! I loved the character development, each one authentic and real, with emotions and flaws like the rest of us. An incredible read, and one that only fuels my fandom for this author. Kristie K

Did anyone proofread? Lots of mistakes and typos. The two main characters talked to each other like teenagers...got annoying. Loved her Holly woods Files series.

I have read several of Emma Hart's books and I have to say that this book just turned into one of my favorites. This book was well written, it had a great storyline, there have been books before about widowed men but Emma Hart really did this story justice by how she created the character of Brantley. So you have Kali Hancock who is the local Handy women in her small town, a place where everyone knows your business by sun up. Then suddenly with the arrival of Brantley Cooper (cough: no relation to Bradley Cooper) and his two adorable twins Ellie and Eli, Kali's world is turn upside down. This book had soo many good things going on that it was really hard to put down, the incredible relationship between Kali and her step-mom Portia, the chemistry development between Kali and Brantley, and the bonding between Kali and the cute but handful twins. You then add in wrong advice from Kali's best friend and a town closely watching Kali and Brantley's every move and you have a funny, hot, cute book that will leave you wanting more once you hit the epilogue. I really did not want Kali and Brantley's story to end, its a shame that this is a standalone. I NEED MORE! I highly recommend this book to any and all book lovers who like a happy ending but more importantly who like stories that talk about the creation of a unorthodox family. Reviewed by: Glori I.

What happens when you combine a feisty lady contractor, a sexy single dad, and two precocious yet adorable kids? In the case of MISS FIX-IT, the latest standalone by author Emma Hart, you get a book that is full of all of the best things, a read that is, by turn, sweet, sexy, and laugh-out-loud hilarious, and one that I absolutely adored. Emma Hart doesn't write anything that I don't love, but she won an even bigger place in my heart with this one. Like all of Emma's leading ladies, Kali is strong, capable, and sure of herself. She's just your average 20-something handywoman, navigating life, love, and the horrors of online dating, and is pretty sure that the males of the species are hopeless. Kali certainly isn't expecting anything out of the ordinary when she's hired by the new hot dad in town, but it isn't long before Brantley Cooper and his three-year-old twins have won her over. I love the interactions between Kali and Brantley, but, I'm going to be honest, Eli and Ellie totally made this book for me. Emma wrote them perfectly, and I fell absolutely in love with them. Every scene that they were in, every tantrum, every single thing about them was perfect. And, when you throw in the growing feels and super-steamy scenes between the adults, I fell, like Kali, hook, line, and sinker. There's a time and a place for angsty books, but it's the reads like MISS FIX-IT that make everything seem right with the world. 5 snarky, sweet, sexy, twin-filled stars for this book that was one of the most enjoyable I've read lately. I can't wait to get my hands on more like it, and definitely recommend it for fans of romantic comedy with that little bit extra.

I've never met an Emma Hart main character I didn't like! Kali is awesome with her tool belt and loving to mess with people who assume her father is the K in the business. Which is exactly what happens when Brantley Cooper (who more than once I called Bradley Cooper as I read) calls the company for someone to remodel his 4-year old twins bedrooms. Which, CUTEST twins EVER!! Ellie and Eli are total show stealers. I almost looked forward more to their appearances in the story rather than Kali and Brant interacting. Because they're so stinking cute! And their lisps are ADORABLE!!! I could totally picture a little kid saying the pearls of wisdom that came out of their mouths. But Brantley is uber hot in his own right. He's got the hot dad, smartass, thing going on. And he LOVES to tease Kali. Which makes this even more of a fun read! I was generously provided this ARC by the author/ publisher in exchange for an unbiased opinion. No type of compensation was made. There is no relationship/affiliation between the reviewer and the author/publisher.

Miss Fix-It is a great read! As usual Emma Hart brings a story full of sass, humour, great characters, a nice plot and a very entertaining read! Kali and Brantley are great characters. Kali is single and she works as a handy woman. She enjoys her job and she is accustomed to the reaction of people when she appears instead of the handy-man they are expecting. Of course, the same happens to Brantley. He is a single dad of twins. The story is funny and entertaining. The sex scenes are hot and well done! I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

I have to say I didn’t warm to Kali like I wanted to. I felt like she was boring and the whole struggling with dating a single father for me felt unrealistic. She was inconsistent with how she presented herself all the way through this book in my opinion. One moment she was lusting after him and to be fair that’s not an issue for me. She’s allowed but then she’s all hot and cold. She’s unsure about the kids and whether she’s ready to be a mum which I accept but it felt like a broken record all the way through the process of the book. I love the buildup to the sexy times but that felt the crux of the book, and there did not seem to be any character development till the end when she realises that she wants to be with the twins anyways. I like Brantley, he’s down to earth, honest and cocky. For me he is the reason this book was a decent read. He was the reason I kept turning the pages and wanted to finish this book. Alongside his children, it was funny to read the children’s antics and to see how Brantley coped with it. All in all, it was a decent read and I’m sure fans of this author will love the book. It just didn’t meet my expectations in this particular book. 3 stars

Miss Fix it was a fun, romantic and endearing read. I fell in love with Brantley and Kali but I fell even harder for the twins!!! I have never loved children characters as much as I love Eli and Ellie. “The last thing I expected when I knocked on your door was to find someone like you.” Two years after his wife’s death, Brantley decides to move to the small town of Rock Bay with his twins, for a fresh start. When they moved in their new house, Brantley soon realised that the house needed a lot of work and got in touch with Hancock Handyman Co. Kali enjoys her job more than anything and is used to the gossip of Rock Bay. When she decided to accept to work for B .Cooper, she did not expect to find out that he was a sinfully hot and sexy father of two. Kali has one rule in her life- never mix business and pleasure… NEVER ““Still, the point remains. Don’t get involved with clients. It always ends in disaster.” The twins ARE THE BEST. I CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM!! They made me feel so many emotions and they made me laugh hard. Eli, what a cute little boy, he is my mini super hero with a cape! Ellie, she is the princess for sure but she loves and she loves her brother and father HARD!! What a perceptive little girl. Kali has never seen herself as a mother and never aspired to be one. However, the chemistry between Kali and Brantley is boiling hot. Will Kali yield to temptation and break her own rule? Will she break not one but 3 hearts? Is Brantley ready to move and start dating again? Can Miss Fix it fix them? “That isn’t what I want. I don’t want to be second best to a memory.” Their story together was a page turner and offered such a satisfying ending. It was beyond endearing, touching, emotional, and intense. Once again, Bravo Emma Hart! May I say… you had me at the dedication

I’m a big fan of flipping around gender roles, I hate when people assume what sex a person should be just based on what their job title is. So I liked the idea behind Miss Fix-It, that our girl is a contractor, and a pretty good one it seems. I also liked how our guy is the single dad, it always seems when its one parent doing the vast majority of the parenting it’s always the mom, so it’s good to see a dad doing it all but also being really good at it. I will say I was expecting this book to be more rom-com than it was. I love Emma Hart’s work, and she has the best humor in her books. And her characters always have the greatest little quirks. Her Holly Woods Files series had great humor even though it was about murders, and some of her others are just a 100% laugh along rom-com. This was more sweet to me, and like all the humor came from the kids, kind of reminiscent of the Burke Brothers series and Mila, except in this book it’s twins so it’s double the trouble. When Kali meets Brantley she is super attracted to him, and I think it’s pretty clear he is attracted to her as well. But Kali isn’t really looking for a built in family, I mean she has big hang ups about it. And I think for Brantley, he more rusty than anything. His wife died, but it’s been a while, so it’s not like he hasn’t moved on, more like his whole life basically revolves around his kids at the moment, after all they are quite the handful. I think what I actually enjoyed the most about this book is that it’s kind of a two part love story. There is the obviously love story of Kali and Brantley, which is fun to read for sure. They have a lot of false starts, kids who show up at the wrong times, and then some seriously sexy moments together. But there is also the love story where Kali falls for the kids. For someone who never imagined having kids of her own, she finds herself wanting to go out of her way try and make the kids happy. She lets them help out when she is re-doing their rooms, which is honestly more inconvenience than anything. She helps with the little things like picking up the kids when their dad can’t, or braiding Ellie’s hair, before she realized it Kali is totally in love with the kiddos. I also really like how she has a great relationship with her step-mother, she is able to get really good advice because her stepmom has been in the same situation before. I think the best part of this book is how relatable it is, I think a lot of people are going to see parts of themselves or their families in this book. I prefer books where the characters actually feel like people I could meet in real life, I mean the chances of me running into a single super hot billionaire, not so much, but meeting a single dad or a girl who has her own business being a DIY queen, way more likely. There wasn’t a super amount of angst, but it still pulled on the heartstrings. It had moments that made me smile, or laugh (those kids are seriously adorable), but like I said it didn’t feel super rom-com. This was definitely an enjoyable book for me. I seriously recommend this book, or really any book by Emma Hart.

When Brantley Cooper contracted Hancock Handyman Co. to do some maintenance work on his newly acquired old home, he certainly wasn't expecting that the K in K. Hancock, the handyman he'd organized to come and quote for the work to stand for Kali, that he'd be a she, or that she'd be young and attractive. When Kali Hancock agreed to quote Brantley, obviously a newcomer to their sleepy little coastal town, for the work needed to fix up two rooms for his twin children, she didn't expect that he'd be handsome, and she certainly didn't expect that he'd be single. Perhaps more to the point, not one single experience in her young life had lead her to believe that it was even remotely possible that she'd find his young twins, hellions though they may be, to be charming and adorable. Several weeks of forced proximity while she takes on that contract ensures that they both have time to face those realizations. Based on the cover alone, which I saw several weeks before release day, I've already recommended to several of my friends that if they want to encourage their husbands into reading romance, that they buy a paperback copy of Miss Fix-It and leave it lying around their homes. Having now read it, I can now heartily re-endorse my own statement since in this case at least, you really can judge a book by its cover. Flirty, fun, and more than a little bit sexy,, this book has all the makings of a fantastic romantic comedy. There's sexual tension between the featured couple right from their very first meeting. There are things standing in the way of an instant love match however. The company rule stating “No cavorting with clients”, Kali's long held aversion to little people, and the perfect timing of Eli and Ellie, sure to interrupt any time things get … interesting. In short, despite the fears of the adults, and the lisps of the youngsters, each of these characters are instantly lovable as they muddle their way through dealing with their emotions and issues, not least of which is the perils and pitfalls that go hand in hand with introducing a new adult into an already existing family dynamic, something Kali has intimate knowledge of, from her own experience adapting to having a step-mother. Ultimately though, even if you don't have a husband, or even if he never picks it up and becomes an instant fan of romantic fiction, I think that this little gem from Emma Hart is well worth the investment anyway.

The story was fun. Made me laugh out loud. But it was ruined by the poor editing job. Wrong words used. Confused enough to have to go back and re-read the sentence. Editors should be fired.

Screw it, no need to sugarcoat on how amazing Emma Hart’s newest release, Miss Fix It is. This book was off the charts incredibly funny, sexy and a total riot of pure entertainment bliss. Seriously, I won’t bore you with a long review because this book BEGS to be read. It had every element that you would want and so much more. So if you are looking for a book that hammers the point of love, sass, playful banter and beauty then this book is for you.

"If I don't believe in myself, is anyone else going to?" Emma Hart is the Queen at friendly, funny, banter with quick-wit responses! I always find myself giggling as the main characters joke with each other. "You don't look hungover." "I'll write to Sephora to thank them for their flawless coverage." I love how Emma created Kali, the heroine, as Miss Fix-It with her toolbox full of pink tools. Kali is not your typical heroine wanting her happily ever after with the white picket fence and 2.5 children in tow. So when she is called upon to help newcomer, Brantley, with his twins' bedroom remodel she finds herself in quite the predicament... Can she fall for the hot, single Dad or will she run away??? Miss Fix-It is the perfect fun, light, easy romance read! I devoured this book pretty fast and fell in love not just Brantley, and Kali, but the twins Ellie & Eli. The twins are the BEST and reminded me a lot of my current stage of motherhood. If you love a steamy, attractive, HOT, single Dad romance pick up this book!

***5 ‘How Cand I Save You If You Keep Wunning Away Fromd Me?’ Stars*** The whole handywoman and single dad with twins combo was what peaked my interest and had me wanting to see just how much chaos could occur and I’m so happy I did. This book had me laughing out loud, not only at the twins antics but Kali’s, and I couldn’t get enough of it. It was a fun, quick read with just the right amount of sweet flirtyness and smexyness mixed with just enough drama to keep things interesting and a whole lot of heart. I adored Kali. Strong, comfortable in her own skin, questionable filter at certain moments but filled with all kinds of sass and a huge heart. I found her to be quite refreshing on her outlook on life and how much she loved being a handywoman, but I also love the things that tended to spill out of her mouth. Many of the things she said had me cracking up. Brantly was all kinds of harried single parent to two very precocious four year old twins, but still managed to (barely) keep his sanity together and be a kind and caring father that didn’t let them run wild, but also didn’t suffocate their curious and exuberant natures. I won’t lie and say the single dad thing wasn’t a huge draw, because it was, but it was just how he was with his children. Even when he was about to lose it all, he didn’t and the absolute love he had for them shined through. But outside of the the whole Hot Dad thing, he was all kinds of flirty smexy nummyness and playfully determined when he wanted to be. I thoroughly enjoyed Kali and Brant’s journey to their HEA. It was fun, sweet and smexy and though there was a bit of push/pull going on, things never got to that OTT angsty stage. I loved how they got to know each other and build a relationship, much of which was pushed along by Eleanor and Elijah, the adorable twin four year old terrors that had me laughing and cringing in equal measure, and how the slow build nature of it built the sexual tension between them until it exploded in the smexiest of ways. While there were a few bumps in their road, they were worked through in such a way that it felt natural and I loved how everything came together in the end. This book was simply a fun, addictive read. The writing was engaging and the story well paced. All of the characters were well written and I’d love to spend more time with them, Portia was amazing and my favorite secondary character for so many reasons. So if you are looking for a fun, character driven romance with twin four year olds that will make your head spin, a smexy single dad and a feisty handywoman then this is a definite must read! ~ Copy provided via InkSlinger PR & voluntarily reviewed ~

He took a deep breath. “And, I like you, Kali. I like you a lot.” … “I know it’s hard and it’s complicated, but I wanted to make that clear to you.” He paused, then scratched at his jaw. “The last thing I expected when I moved here was to find someone like you.” I generally love everything about single dad romances. To me, there’s nothing more attractive than a man who is taking care of his kiddos, especially if those kids are adorable, quirky, sassy, independent twins. When I began this story, I wasn’t sure how much I was going to love it. Then I met the twins, and their dad (*fans self*), and I just knew this story was going to be great. I feel like the more reviews I write, the more difficult it gets not to tell you how I feel without giving any spoilers. This story wasn’t what I expected, but … it also kind of was. Let me explain: Kali is a woman, working in a man’s field, and is feeling the prejudice that comes along with it. Instead of allowing it to hurt her, she embraces it and lives for the shock of that first moment when she meets a new client. When she shows up to begin work on the twins’ rooms, she immediately is surrounded by a small family of … well, craziness. These twins are a HANDFUL! Full of enthusiasm and mischief, they always seem to be showing up as Kali is working and somehow worming their way into her heart. Unfortunately, their father begins to do the same. Brantley is a man who has recently moved to Kali’s small town, but nobody really knows why (and in a town like this, everyone knows EVERYTHING!). Brantley decides it should be his daily responsibility to make fun of Kali in some way. This teasing leads to an awkward friendship, which leads to … well, you’ll see I have to say, though, it’s the twins that make this story. I fell head over heels for little Eli the minute I met him. I just knew he was going to be one of my favorite book kids EVER. His sister Ellie, though … well, she is adorable, but man was she hard to love! That is, until you see her child-like heart: “Daddy was sad. Den we moved here.” She dropped her eyes and played with the screws in her hand. “Den you came. And now Daddy is happy. And, and, sometimes when I’m sad, Daddy kisses me and den I’m happy again. So, I fort maybe you kissed Daddy and made him happy again.” There it was. The moment I was absolutely and completely done. This story gave me a little bit of all the wonderful parts of a love story: I laughed, my heart broke a little, I felt some sadness, but overall I felt the underlying hope that someone’s life was about to be filled with all kinds of happy ❤ Absolutely recommended.

4.5 Stars! This book should come with a warning - Beware all who open, guaranteed chance of falling in love with this book! Emma Hart has written a heart-warming story of a family in need of a mother's love and the reluctant woman who becomes exactly what they need. Kali is just the handiwoman hired to redo Brantley's children's rooms. She has no idea when she takes the job that this man and his children will become everything to her. Kali is a great character. An independent woman with her own business and a sassy attitude. Her interaction with Brantley is classic with great, sarcastic quips and stolen moments of longing. Brantley is not your typical book boyfriend. He is focused on his kids despite his growing attraction to Kali. He seems to understand her hesitance in regards to his kids and patiently waits to take what he wants. However, the real stars of the book are those twins. Eli and Ellie are amazing, which is exactly what I would expect from Emma Hart, who I appropriately dubbed the Queen of Book Kids! The twins are funny and provide great comic relief and yet there are these sweet, soulful moments between them and Kali that will have you near tears and not sad tears, but tears of sweet happiness. If you are a parent, this book will really resonate with you. That's the other thing that made this book such a great read, Hart's ability to realistically write a family situation. I found myself stopping to think about similar experiences I had with my kids and it made me smile. I already warned you, you WILL fall in love with this book and the characters within. A must read!

Emma writes children the best! Ellie and Eli make this book spectacular! It's a page turner that you won't want to put down. Brantley and Kali are great as well. But the kids steel this show. Totally worth the read!

Hands down one of my favorite books by Emma Hart. This book has feels, hysterical laughter, light hearted love, and self doubts. There isn't a ton of focus that this is a female in a male dominated job, so there is none of the political heavy tones. This is a light hearted romantic comedy that really showcases what a great writer Emma Hart really is. The twins are hysterical and delightful, and really make this book so it doesn't take itself too seriously. Told only in Kali's POV this book is a sure fire delight.
