#WeekendReads – A Good Man by @LeoRosanna #DIY

Rosanna Leo
A Good Man: Handymen, Book 1
Totally Bound Publishing 

If you’re a fan of a certain DIY show featuring a few hot brothers, author Rosanna Leo has an equally hot read for you with A Good Man: Handymen, Book 1. Who doesn’t like a partner who’s good with their hands?

Set in Toronto’s Little Italy, this contemporary romance proved to be more than a light romp. The complications of not-too-distant exes and a hero with some not-too-distant trauma combines for a realistic and compelling love story. The reader wants an HEA for Michael and Emily, and Leo refreshingly delivers.

Honestly, I easily see myself in Emily – following the dream of remodeling her Nonna Olivia’s house into a healthy, neighborhood soup shop. (I love making soup.) Some of these descriptions will get your mouth watering. 

The interaction of Michael and his two brothers Eli and Nick is totally believable and like the viewers of their hit TV show, I’ve got a crush on Nick, which I’m sure will be book three! (She’ll make us wait for it.)

A Good Man: Handymen, Book 1

He tears down walls for a living. She’ll tear down the ones around his heart.

Contractor Michael Zorn is one of the leading men on the successful home improvement show Handymen. He is also revered for an act of bravery he’d rather forget. The press may hound him, but all he really wants is to help couples realize their home renovation dreams.

One of these couples is Emily Daniels and her fiancé, Trent. When Emily inherits an old home in Toronto’s Little Italy, she sees it as the perfect location for her small business. The house needs a lot of work, but her appearance on the Handymen show means Michael and his contractor brothers will help her renovate at a reasonable cost.

When Michael and Emily meet, their chemistry is intense. Emily wants to stay true to Trent, but her fiancé has done nothing but disappoint her. Michael recognizes Trent for what he is—a cheater. And it isn’t long before he breaks Emily’s heart.

At first, Michael only intends to comfort Emily, but their friendship soon flares into passion. Unfortunately, Michael has secrets and wounds of his own, ones he has never trusted to another. Emily is determined to break down his walls, but can she trust her heart to a man who can’t trust himself?
