Fixing the Hole by Katherine Halle


Heavy rains and strong winds slammed an uprooted tree through Steve Crowell’s roof, leaving a gaping hole to match the one in his heart. After his ex left him for a younger man, Steve’s not sure he’s ready to handle another disaster. His best friend highly recommended the contractor, but the man’s already late, and when he shows up with his music thumping, Steve isn’t impressed—until Riley steps out of his pickup truck. Personable, gorgeous Riley talks a mile a minute, which Steve finds both ridiculously endearing and terrifying. Piecing together a heart isn’t as easy as fixing a roof, but Riley might just be the right man for the job.

My Rating - 4 Stars!

Fixing The Hole is a short and sweet May to December romance by Katherine Halle.

Steve and Riley find love when Riley is hired to fix the hole in Steve's roof. These two men are such opposites, making for some fun moments. Riley's a talker, just rambling on and on. The way Steve reacts to it though is touching. Instead of being annoyed, he's content with letting someone else do the talking, and thus taking the pressure off of himself.

This story is all about the beginnings of a relationship. It's about the flirting, the getting to you each other, and taking chances. It's about the possibilities.

I enjoyed the age gap, as the younger Riley's just so bubbly and excited, while Steve's more reserved and quiet. One of my favorite things about this story is the way that the younger Riley is the one who flirts often. I find this cute and adorable and find Riley to be so damn loveable.
Steve, having been hurt in the past by his ex, has been drowning in pain and regret. It's terrific the way that Riley encourages Steve to let go of his past and live in the now. 

If you're in the mood for a simple and sweet story, Fixing The Hole will definitely satisfy.
