In the second novel in award-winning author Barbara Longley's sweet and sexy Haneys series, an introverted electrician rewires a young widow's apartment - and attempts to mend her heart.

Painfully shy electrician Wyatt Haney is a pro at complex wiring jobs, but when it comes to women, he just can't seem to make a lasting connection. If he had even half the courage of the superhero he penned for his comic book series, he'd finally be able to talk to his beautiful neighbor, Kayla - and stop hiding behind a hoodie. When an electrical fire breaks out in Kayla's apartment, Wyatt comes to the rescue, sparking an attraction neither of them expected.

Kayla Malone has had enough surprises. First an unplanned pregnancy at 18, then losing her husband in war, and now a fire in her apartment. Thank God her hot neighbor has the skills to help. As Wyatt repairs Kayla's apartment and forges a relationship with her son, he also makes inroads to her heart. It's clear that Wyatt has fallen for Kayla, but is she willing to risk another heartbreak - or will she ignore the electricity between them and miss her happy ending?
My Review

This was really good!  I listened to the first book in the series a few months ago and enjoyed it so I decided to give this second book a try.  I ended up liking this book even more than the first one.   I ended up listening to the entire book in just two days and hated to set it aside.  I really had a fantastic time with this contemporary romance.

I loved the characters in this book.  Wyatt was amazing.  He was such a good guy who has been through a lot.  He is a quiet man who writes comic books and works for his family's construction company.  He has also had his eye on his neighbor ever since she moved to his building.  Kayla is a widowed single mom.  She spends her days going to school to become a dental hygienist and the rest of her time is focused on her son, Brady. 

I knew right away that Wyatt and Kayla were going to be really good together.  They had great chemistry and seemed to understand each other in a way that others didn't.  Wyatt was fantastic with Kayla's son, Brady, and I thought that those interactions really helped to develop their relationship.  I loved the fact that Brady played such an important role in the story and I loved seeing all three of them together. 

Teri Clark Linden did a great job with the narration of this story.  She handled a pretty diverse group of characters without any difficulty.  I thought that her delivery added a lot of emotion to the story which was a big plus.  I found it easy to listen to this book for hours at a time.  I have listened to Teri Clark Linden a few times now and she is quickly making her way onto my list of favorite narrators. 

I would highly recommend this book to contemporary romance fans.  Wyatt was a fantastic Hero and I loved watching the relationship between him and Kayla develop.  These were two people that deserved their happily ever after and it was just a joy to see everything come together.  I am looking forward to reading more from this series in the future.

    1. I haven't like everything that I have read from this author but this one was great!

  2. Even better for you than the first? Now that is good news. I do like the sound of this pair and their situations. I'll have to look these up.

    1. I hope you like it as much as I did if you do get the chance to read it, Sophia Rose!

  3. This series sounds great!

    You're doing a fantastic job of utilizing all your KU options. I have not done a thing. I doubt I'll manage anything in the next 10 days but hopefully they will have some kind of deal for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Anne - Books of My Heart

    1. I have done a lot of audiobooks but that is really because I rarely get audiobooks for review. I feel like I got my $0.99 worth out of the membership!

  4. I love Wyatt already! This sounds so good, Carole. I haven't heard of this series or author before. I will be checking the books out though!
