Warning: this book contains explicit sexual content and cursing.
If someone told me six months ago, I would be visiting a cave one hundred and fifty-six feet underground in the pitch dark and that the journey would change my life forever, I would have bet odds on my having a panic attack and possibly not living through the experience.
Add a hot sexy stranger to the mix and the fact I wanted to rip his clothes off the minute I laid eyes on him … and nearly did … in the middle of a public tour, I'd say you were certifiably insane.
The hard brush of his lips and the way he's packed into those tight mouth-watering trousers, set my mind racing out of control.
It's just sex though. Raw. Carnal. Bone-melting sex.
That voice. It drives me crazy. A few choice words spoken in that deep Southern drawl, and currents of electricity sizzle up my spine. In a single kiss, he's brought me to my knees. Literally.
As the most sought after house reconstruction designer in all of Albany NY, Sam lives 11,000 miles away and that is the way I like it. I retain complete control in this relationship. No expectations. No ties. A contract with my very own escape clause.
Only one problem.
My heart never signed on the dotted line however.

racist, ridiculous bs

by Valeen

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

When I first started reading Hot Renovations, I was excited. But it soon became obvious that I wasn't going to enjoy the ride, and I didn't. And then right at about 88% I read the the most racist, ridiculous bs I could have imagined, and I stopped reading right then and there. "Hey, amigo! Hold that board still on the other end," I snapped. "This is what I get with a bunch of bean eaters instead of my seasoned crew," I mumbled, thinking no one could understand me."

Before I read that line I was thinking 2 or 3 stars, because there were numerous typos and I couldn't stand Quinn, but after that line? I'd negative star it if I could. Racist bs like this does not belong in contemporary fiction, and I refuse to give a good rating to anything with crap like this in it.

by Aunt G

Hot Renovations: The Doyle Sisters Series: Book 1 by Kristen Kelly is a good read. A bit over the top but fun. It is the story of Quinn and Sam. They meet while touring Howe Caverns and when it gets very dark thing quickly get very steamy between them.

Not for me

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I am sorry but I could not finish reading this book no matter how hard I tried. There are so many inconsistencies, spelling and grammar mistakes that it was ridiculous. Plus there were even simple maths mistakes [adding on five hours to the time??] No. And as for the character Quinn - just too many questions around her that aren't worth asking [where does she get her money from? She seems delusional in so many instances]. Two Bens in the story. Just too disjointed. I love reading most genres but this was just not for me.

Two damage people who's known love and loss learn how to love again with each other. Such as an incredible storyline. I've known loss like them, so the story pulled my heartstrings. I felt their heartache. Overall, a great book, and I definitely recommend it to read!

Needs revisions

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Although I liked were this storyline was going, there were a lot of things that needed to be fixed. I don’t know if any or all of the problems that I had and I’m assuming others did too, have been fixed prior to he actual release of this book because I’m not willing to pay to find out.
They both had kids that recently passed away however neither character spoke to the other about them but suddenly they were both aware of them. I felt like I had missed a complete chapter and/or conversation.
Although I did push through to the end of this book, I struggled a lot trying to keep up with the way something was described in one chapter then it was completely different in the next.
Some of these were minor details but trying to keep up eventually ruined it for me.
I understand when receiving an ARC that the book still has to have revisions before final approval but unfortunately for me there were a few too many mistakes to keep me captivated.
I feel this book will be very good with some revisions.

A Total Waste Of Time

by rainbowtourist

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I voluntarily received an arc of this book via Booksprout for a fair and honest review. Having lost a daughter myself, I really wanted to stop reading this book. While my life turned out differently than our female character Quinn, I wanted to understand who she was or rather who she would become. Quinn comes off as a desperate housewife. Men can actually say NO and Sam did. I don't understand Quinn's reasonings to keep pushing him. I think the idea of the accident, as far as James' actions, was too far fetched...to a point of absolutely ridiculous. She described Sam's skin as "saddle brown" wtf? Only a stupid rich man would have unprotected sex with a woman he met only hours earlier and believe her when she tells him she can't get pregnant. We find out later she had condoms in her purse...he was a stranger, she had condoms and still has unprotected sex with him? Plus the author(s) confuse readers by first saying Sam was in a rugby shirt, then ax oxford and then a Ralph Lauren polo (and misspelled Ralph Lauren)...then Quinn she smells of lavender, coconuts and lilacs. And the appearance of Val was absurd, along with the things she said. When she slips out of his bed the book says they spent two days together...really? It was less than twenty-four hours. There's so much wrong with this book. When an author writes "ends to a mean" instead of "means to an end" it frustrates the reader. I actually don't think the author paid attention. When Sam asked Quinn what time her flight was she told him it was at 5:00a.m. then the author writes that there was a 5 hour layover and when Quinn checks her watch when she arrives in Tampa she says it's 6 a.m. (Bad at math and writing). Why are there two Ben's in the book? There's a few BIG things the author missed. Quinn called Sam her boy toy..he was 33 how old was Quinn? As a reader I got the impression that Quinn didn't need to work...where did her money come from? There was little to no character development. We do know besides Maura Quinn caught Ben in bed with one of her sisters..was it Maura...too many loose ends. Also, Val knew it wasn't Sam in the bed, why didn't she say anything? Why didn't Quinn figure out in the toy store that the baby val was carrying was Turners? In the book he never tells Quinn about losing his son. I'm thinking that this is supposed to start a series based on the rest of Quinn's sisters, I can't imagine it. Save your time and money and give this Read a pass.

Great chemistry and cute couple.

by Bookreview.dk

A well written story that caught me from the first chapter. It has a great well written story line and plot. Predictable but worth the read. There is humor, chemistry, trust and family issues and a lot more in this story. I like the characters that are well described and developing nicely. I like the story is written in dual POV to give the thoughts and feelings of both main characters to the reader.
Quinn and Sam are a passionate couple and they suit nicely together because their past is a lot alike. It is a romance that has hot scenes and great chemistry between the main characters. It is not all that I like about Quinn but he gets better through the story. I like the emotional roller coaster ride and the twists and turns. There is drama, second chances, sad moments, family trouble and a lot more in this book. It has it all.
The BDSM parts are very light and nothing to write about. The scenes are hot and steamy.
These two characters are meant to be together to heal each other and have their HEA.

It is a fast paced story that have some drama in it. A lot happens but it is well balanced.

Smoking

Hot Read.
Sam and Quinn meet in a unusual way she having left her husband and lost her child. Sam also had a great loss he lost his wife and child and on a trip he meets a hot red head Quinn they are both sexually attracted to each other. They immediately have some action between them even when others are around.

Quinn thinks that this is a fling they live thousands of miles away from each other. Quinn is really confused and does not know what she wants she almost makes a terrible mistake but she realizes it and doesn't go through with it . They have a brief period when there is a misunderstanding between them and Quinn just leaves instead of communicating with Sam. That's what I didn't like their was a mistaken identity I won't say anymore and she kept something very important away from Sam.

Will they get their HEA. You have to read Hot Renovations to find out.
