I’m Ivy Clarke. Bartender, best friend, and disbeliever in love.
And now I’m in over my head, trying to flip a house all by myself.
I’m not too proud to admit I need some help. Too bad the only one who can help me is the same man I want to throw out this house’s second-story window.
Jackson Gamble and I can’t be in the same room together for more than a minute without devolving into a sparring match.
Except for that one time…
But enough about that. Jackson’s looking for forever, and I don’t believe in love, remember?
Get in. Renovate. Get out. Keep my heart firmly in tact.
Because it’s much easier to fix up a house than a broken heart.
Full of humor and dripping with delicious tension, Nailed It proves that every heart can be ready for a little rehabilitation, if only you’re willing to open it up.

Two things caught my attention about this book: One, it was written by Cindi Madsen, who also happened to write one of my favorite YA Contemporary Romances of 2017, Operation Prom Date.Two, it promised a little bit of hate to love, and everyone knows how I feel abotu this trope.
Things got better when I leaned Jackson was actually Ivy’s best friend’s brother, which means double yay as far as I’m concerned.
Ivy and Jackson had great chemistry and the banter was pretty great. I also liked the humor aspect. Ivy had a good, fun voice, and most of her interactions with Jackson and Savannah made me smile.
I have to say I didn’t see it coming from the level of heat in the first few chapters, but the romance turned out to be fade to black, which was sort of disappointing. Having said that, Ivy and Jackson still had some steamy scenes together.
Even though Nailed It didn’t grab my attention as much as Operation Prom Date did, it was still a good and funny romance story.
