Why do Do-It-Yourself...

Single mom Anne Edmond can handle—and hand-make—just about anything. From table settings to party favors, floral arrangements to nursery décor, there is no project her creativity and a glue gun can’t tackle. But dating? That’s a whole ’nother story. Case in point: Mike Everett. He’s a gorgeous mechanic and known car-whisperer, a man who can work with auto parts like nobody’s business. And he has thrown a monkey wrench into Anne’s carefully-crafted life...

When you can do it together?

One look at Anne is enough for Mike to know that she’s no fixer-upper. She’s perfect just the way she is—and the chemistry between them works like a charm. Mike’s always been a no-strings kind of guy, but Anne’s impressive self-reliance—and gorgeous exterior—gives him pause. This time, a fast joyride just doesn’t seem like enough. But first he has to convince Anne that he means to take her all the way...

Kassiah: Okay, first of all, Anne is a girl after my own heart–she’s crafty and she’s a blogger. Which you know I love.

I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by Nicole Michaels before, and honestly I don’t know that I loved this enough to keep reading the rest of the books in the series. I liked it well enough–it was definitely light and sweet, but I don’t know. Thought I liked the characters and the idea for the story, I didn’t love it.

Mike and Anne have an instalove connection. Well, maybe it’s more instalust. They can’t stop thinking about each other, and though Mike is a total player, he realizes that Anne’s the girl for him. I did love their fun banter and the way their relationship progressed. If you enjoy light-hearted romances with a small-town feel, then I think you’ll like Start Me Up.
