Publisher’s Blurb

Griffin Caldwell can’t wait to make a fresh start: new job, new town, new house. He’s even realized the lifelong dream of owning his own home. Except when he arrives, nothing is what he expected, and Griffin’s celebration turns from triumphant to terrible.

Not only is his “cute bungalow” a derelict heap, it needs major remodeling work to be livable. And it turns out there’s only one person in town who’s even willing to commit to the project.

The first time David Webber talks to Griffin about his disaster zone of a house, he’d like nothing better than to hang up the phone. But he’s stuck. All his grumpy behavior has gotten him is a whole stack of bad reviews online and no clients.

From the moment they collide over a busted toilet, sparks and snark fly. The only thing that might be hotter than their mutual animosity is their intense chemistry.

Neither of them wants to admit it at first but as the project evolves and their lives intertwine, maybe what they’re working on isn’t just a house. It might even be proof that a caring partnership can build a strong, long-lasting foundation--and an even fiercer love.



All Screwed up by authors, Beth Bolden and Brittany Cournoyer is a sweet read. This one just made me smile as I read it.   This story is told in dual POV and it works beautifully for this story.

Griffin seems to mess up his life a lot.  He bought a house sight unseen moved to the town, to find the house he got is the worst possible mess he could have ever bought. No contractor in town will touch it.

He wants to prove to himself that he can follow through with what he decides to do. He is sassy, kind, and a little like a helpful puppy. But that is just part of his charm.

David grouchy is one word to sum him up. He is a contractor losing business cause of his attitude.  He needs this job. He needs a good review. What he does not need is an overzealous helpful owner always in his way.   

He is a good person. Good at his job. Has to learn some patience with others I think Griffin is just the man to teach him.

I loved the yin and yang of this couple. They each need each other in ways they have yet to know.  I really adored this story. When you want a love story to make you smile this is the one to pick up.
