Synopsis: Kit Carlyle isn’t just some woman. Beautiful? Yep. Seductive? Damn straight. She’s also my best friend…and my co-worker. But, hell, I’m a guy with a pulse. Every once in a while, I take a look and think filthy things about her that maybe I shouldn’t.
But when her cousin dies and leaves her with a long as hell and sexy bucket list, Kit turns to me for a helping hand. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a woman in need. Besides, I’m damn sure not about to let another man steal away my girl, occupy her bed, or fill my shoes.
But as the stakes get higher and the items become hotter, I’ll have to face the toughest challenge of all: admitting I want more than Kit’s friendship. I want to make her mine.
Opinion: Big thank you to Chelle and Eden, along with their team, for providing me with an ARC to read to give my unbiased review.
I’ll be honest here so we’re on the same page. I recently, by recent I mean end of last year, read Takeover which is a sneak peak novella-ish introduction to Acquisition by Chelle. I didn’t give it a glowing review because I honestly wasn’t impressed.
I am so happy I was given the opportunity to give Chelle another chance and I am also proud of myself for not passing on this opportunity based on a previous let down. I cannot begin to explain to y’all how impressed I am with Nailed Down. Hands down, one of the best romance reads out there. Everyone needs to give this one a whirl. Chelle and Eden have such a way with words. It’s legitimately magical.
This is a story of friends to lovers with such an angsty, frustratingly sexy path. Nailed Down is seductive torture. It was so hard to put down, I didn’t want to stop reading! I even read it while in the waiting room at the doctors office because I couldn’t put it down. #NoShame
Nailed Down is a contemporary romance meaning it’s here and now, this day and age. I am a huge fan of HGTV, my fiance makes fun of me for it, so I loved that the main characters were the two leads on a renovation show. I really, really enjoyed that Kane was a handyman, not your average billionaire, CEO, you know the type.
I would say the bucket list left for Kit is half sexy, half normal. The whole thing isn’t drop your panties crazy, but parts are. Can we also talk about how primal Kane is though? When they say friends to lovers they mean it. Kane is so protective of Kit, I don’t understand why it took them so long to see what was right in front of them.
I am so glad these ladies decided to turn this into a series of three books. I can’t wait to keep reading. They have me hooked!
My Overall Rating: ★★★★★
USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss currently lives in a small town near the Gulf of Mexico. She’s a full-time writer, time-waster extraordinaire, social media addict, and coffee fiend. She’s written over ten books and has two series available. She loves spending her free time with her boyfriend, 2 cats, and her hamster.
Before becoming a writer, Chelle taught high school history for over ten years. She holds a master’s degree in Instructional Technology and a bachelor’s in History. Although history is her first love, writing has become her dream job and she can’t imagine doing anything else.
Eden Butler is an editor and writer of Fantasy, Mystery and Contemporary Romance novels and the nine-times great-granddaughter of an honest-to-God English pirate. This could explain her affinity for rule breaking and rum.
When she’s not writing or wondering about her possibly Jack Sparrowesque ancestor, Eden patiently waits for her Hogwarts letter, edits, reads and spends way too much time watching rugby, Doctor Who and New Orleans Saints football.
She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.
