Construction tip #1: Never anger a hot-tempered woman who knows how to wield a sledgehammer. And right now, Jill Sadler is spitting mad. Her company is competing on the wildly popular show Texas Dream Home, and she intends to give it her all. The opposition: We Nail It Contractors, helmed by the man who once married her…and walked out twenty-four hours later. Jill can’t let Cal Reynolds take this round. Not when she has her foster sisters and years of righteous resentment spurring her on.

Winning the contest would do wonders for Cal’s firm. Getting under Jill’s skin is just a bonus. She paints him as a villain, though Cal had no choice but to leave. Yet being around Jill again—fiery on the outside, vulnerable and warm underneath—is setting off sparks that can’t be blamed on faulty wiring. And the only way to fix the Jill-size hole in his heart is to risk everything and see if this love is built to last…

I'm so glad that I started reading Kim Law. I've found that I've been really enjoying her books. Of the ones that I've read, I haven't found one that I didn't like. 

Hard Headed is the start of a new series. I think you are just going to love the story line. I know I did. Not a huge fan of second chance romances and I've found that many of the authors I've been reading lately have book doing them. Because I enjoy so many of those authors I kinda had no choice but to try the stories. 

Right away the author had me hooked when I found out that the characters were going to be on a home make-over reality show! What fun!!! I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen. I kinda have a thing for these kinds of shows so I was all for it. Plus the all female owned business of construction workers called to me. Then add two people on apposing teams that don't like each other! 

Oh boy were we in for it!

You quickly realize that there is something between Jill and Cal. Did I mention that I often don't read blurbs? I like to go into a story cold. Since I didn't read it I didn't know much about the characters, which means I truly was enjoying it as it happened. 

I usually like the hero more then the heroine (shocking right?) but in this case I didn't. I kinda couldn't stand him at first. I think it was because you knew something had happened between them but the author at first kept it hidden. I need to get into the story more to learn what it was but from Cal's thoughts he was turning me off a little. 

As the story went on and I learned more about the two main characters I found my first impressions changing. I stopped thinking that Cal was a dick and learned that there was two sides of every story. This is why I love reading romances. So much going on! 

In the end I was so happy that I read Hard Headed and can't wait for the next stories in the series. You'll love both Heather, Trenton and aunt Blu. I have a feeling there is more fun to come!

If you've read Hard Headed or any other book by Kim Law I'd love to here your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
